Directions (Questions 21-22): Read the following passages carefully to answer the questions that follow.

The first step is for us to realize that a city need not be a frustrate of life; it can be among other things, a mechanism for enhancing life, for producing possibilities of living which are not to be realized except through cities. But, for that to happen, deliberate and drastic planning is needed. Towns as much as animals, must have their systems of organs-those for transport and circulation are an obvious example. What we need now are organ systems for recreation, leisure, culture, community expression. This means abundance of open space, easy access to un-spoilt nature, beauty in parks and in fine buildings, gymnasium and swimming baths and recreation grounds in plenty, central spaces for celebrations and demonstrations, halls for citizens’ meetings, concert halls and theaters and cinemas that belong to the city. And the buildings must not be built anyhow or dumped down anywhere; both they and their groupings should mean something important to the people of the place.

21. According to the author, the function of a city is to
(1) provide adequate community expression.
(2) make available centres of recreation and public gatherings.
(3) facilitate traffic and communication.
(4) raise the tone of life and make it more meaningful.

22. The opening sentence of the passage implies that
(1) the possibilities of living a decent life cannot be found in a city.
(2) only a city can provide the means to lead a full life.
(3) among other places, a city can also help man to lead a successful life.
(4) a city provides better opportunities for good living than a village.
