  • B) Human Rights
  • C) Socialism

II. Read the Comprehensive passage below and answer the questions at the end of the passage:

Knowledge is power, but what is power? A basic distinction can be drawn between behavioral power …. The ability to obtain outcomes you want ….. and resource power … the possession of resources that are usually associated with the ability to reach outcomes you want.

Behavioural power, in turn, can be divided into hard and soft power. Hard power is the ability to get others to do what they otherwise would do through threats or rewards. Whether by economic carrots or military sticks, the ability to coax or coerce has long been the central element of power. As we pointed out two decades ago, the ability of the less vulnerable to manipulate or escape the constraints of an interdependent relationship at low cost is an important source of power. For example in 1971 the United States halted the convertibility of dollars into gold and increased its influence over the international monetary system. In 1973, Arab states temporarily gained power from an oil embargo.
