    Direction: Read the given passage carefully and answer the questions that follow.
    If two or more persons meet together and start taking about the present society of India they soon come to the conclusion that every system, every institution of India is infested with corruption.
    Corruption has become so common in public life that people are now averse to thinking of public life without this phenomenon. But what does corruption actually mean? Corruption means perversion of morality, integrity, character or duty out of mercenary motives (eg. bribery) without regard to honour, right or justice. In public life a corrupt person is one who bestows undue favour on someone with whom he has monetary or others interests (E.f. nepotism). Simultaneously, those who genuinely deserve those things as their right remain deprived.
    But it is only recently that corruption has become rampant in our public life. People no longer protest against corrupt practice, fight injustice or express any shock when big scandals are exposed. Also corruption is not a uniquely Indian phenomenon; it is witnessed all over the world (USA, Japan, Italy, etc).
    Who is a corrupt person, in public life?

    A) One who works against the public interest

    B) One who cheats others

    C) One who goes against the government rules

    D) One who bestows undue favour on someone by taking monetary or any sorts of benefits
