    Direction: Read the given passage carefully and answer the questions that follow.
    Political terrorism is much more dangerous and its consequences can be disastrous. Political terrorists are well organized and well-trained and it often becomes difficult for the law enforcing agencies to arrest them in time. They indulge in senseless violence on a large scale in order to intimidate the people and the government.
    Hijacking of aero planes, arson, robberies, murder of eminent personalities, shooting down of innocent people indiscriminately, use of transistor bombs and other explosives, spreading of rumors, etc. are the various devices used by terrorist organizations in order to achieve their political ends.
    Terrorists constantly change their hide-outs and their tactics in order to escape arrest and punishment. When arrested, they try to commit suicide or are killed by their own close associates. They may think that they are patriots, but in reality they are anti-social or criminal elements who are exploited by clever politicians to achieve their own ends. Terrorists are usually young, while the brains behind them are old, seasoned politicians who coordinate and guide their activities. They are fanatics and extremists who act with great fervor and zeal, but studies reveal that if apprehended alive, a terrorist loses his fervor as quickly as he had acquired it.
    Terrorism is a world-wide problem. Very often it is seen that terrorist groups receive money, weapons, training and guidance from other countries and this enables them to attain a high level of performance. It was not an easy job to seal the long border completely and prevent flow of arms to the terrorists, but through strong and determined steps, terrorists might be flushed out and peace restored.
