Question 7

Read the following stanza and answer the question that follows:

Invisible atoms coming together
Revealing themselves in visible forms
Seeds are hugged by the earth
Which renders them as gardens in bloom.
And yonder stars, are they not pearls
Floating on teeming seas?
Scattered, yet strung together in orderly constellations
Love binding them to one another
And each is perpetually seeking its like?

Which of the following options best captures the spirit of the above stanza?


Throughout the poem, the poet describes how something binds seemingly individual objects. 
The poet highlights natural phenomena such as the combination of atoms to form a compound, seeds growing from the ground, stars floating in the sky forming constellations to establish his point. Therefore, option E is the right answer.
