PRACTISE TEST - I
Direction for (Q 1- 5 ) Read the following passage and answer the questions ;
Communication is an art. The way of communication is more important than what is being communicated. In other words “ The medium is the message.” From the time we learnt to speak and write we can say that there have been two major milestones (a) printing of books and (b) present day electronic medium i.e. electronic revolution . As compared to books where learning is a step-wise process, electronic medium such as computer , television etc covers a wide range of knowledge in less time with least storage space. There has been a complete change of perception, co-ordination and presentation of data in this age of computer technology. The most important feature of present technology is the level of interaction which is simultaneous and comprehensive in different fields of knowledge. This brings us to the point of conflict between the two technologies which separate the otherwise educated from computer knowledgeable. Keeping in view the concept of global village it can be expected that the people will co-operate for the common good of human-race rather than break into different opinion forming communities having divergent views on communication medium.
