    Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow :

In prison, I was grateful for their company. Indians do not, as a rule, approve of the animals as household pets. It is remarkable that in spite of their general philosophy of non-violence to animals, they are often singularly careless and unkind towards them. Even the cow, the favoured animal, though looked up to and almost worshipped by many Hindus, becomes often the cause of riots, fit is not treated kindly. Worship and kindliness do not always go together.
    Different countries have adopted different animals as a symbol of their ambition or character ? the eagle of the United States of America and the lion of Germany and bulldog of England, the fighting cock of France, the bear of old Russia. How far do these patron animals mould national character? Most of them are aggressive, fighting animals, beasts of prey. It is not surprising that the people who grow up with these examples before them should mould themselves consciously after them and strike up aggressive attitudes, and roar and prey on others. Nor is it surprising that the Hindu should be mild and non-violent, for his patron animal is the cow.
