XAT 2020 Question 9


Read the poem below and answer the 2 associated questions:

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But, if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Question 9

Which of the following statements will the poet agree with the MOST?


Here we are looking for an option in which the idea is not directly given in the poem, but can be reasonably inferred from it. 
Of the options, B C & D talk about the emotions already discussed in the poem.
Option E makes a comparison of two emotions which cannot be inferred from the poem.
Option A talks about greed, which can be considered a product of desire and hence is the apt choice.
