    Direction; Read the given passage l carefully and answer the questions that follow:
    All life forms somehow possess knowledge and skills for survival and propagation. Such knowledge and skills are transmitted from generation to generation in various ways. On one hand, there is the indirect path via inheritance. On the other hand, there is the indirect path via education, where education is meant in a broad sense. The knowledge and skills transmitted by education are collectively known as the culture of a species. The presence of education in human cultures can be inferred from the oldest historical records, dating back to about 3000 BC. These records indicate that education was at that time already formalized to some extent. That is, our early predecessors were aware of the educational process and certain members were specialized in dealing with educational matters. We do not know when education first appeared in this formalized way, but it is generally assumed that it is much older than the first references that have been preserved.
