Read the following paragraph and answer the following questions.

When I first visited Bangalore in the sixties it was a garden city. With its parks, one a forest in the centre of the city, its lakes, its avenues covered with a green canopy of rain trees, its altitude of three thousand feet above sea-level and the temperate climate that goes with the height. it became a victim of its own natural assets. At the beginning of the twentieth century the Indian Institute of Science was founded there and just before independence came the Raman ResearchInstitute. They gave Bangalore a reputation for excellence in science which attracted nationalized hi-tech industries like Hindustan Aeronautics as well as the private sector. Then followed the IT wallahs. To add all those
pressures post-independence Bangalore also became the capital of one of India’s largest and progressive states. Bangaloreans who once boasted of their garden city nowdo not use that term for obvious reasons. Their homes for the future, fuelled by the city’s readiness to move on to the national, even international platform. have been belied, at least for the moment, by their innumerable travails like environmental pollution,
haphazard expansion and piece-meal planning.

Question 195

Which one reason does the writer not give for the city to get a reputation for excellence in science?
