I think the option E is the right answer, please any one can suggest me, am I right or wrong.

Hemraj said: (Feb 27, 2011)  
I am agree with you Nikinja, the option E is very close to the objective of the paragrph.

Naveen said: (Apr 16, 2011)  
I also think so, not only this answer, some other answers given are doubtful to me.

Prangi Jain said: (Apr 16, 2011)  
I also go with option e, cos last line of the statmnt says that in industrial society individual's prformance is directly proportional to ones status. N so the option e says, that industrial society is a leveller for ones status.

Aakash said: (Jun 30, 2011)  
Yea true, option e is correct :).

Sanjay said: (Aug 8, 2011)  
Its clearly mentioned in the first sentence i.e.. by-products of technology is the greater dignity and value that it imparts to human labour.

So the given answer is correct.

Sivaparvathi said: (Nov 1, 2011)  
I agree with sanjay, I also go with potion c.

Santosh Darade said: (Dec 6, 2011)  
Answer C is correct as it is mentioned clearly in the first line that technology is the greater dignity & value that...

Neha said: (Feb 25, 2012)  
All men are nt born to be equal its industry that give them equal status or level. So option e is the most appropriate one.

Virat said: (Jul 28, 2013)  
Technology imparts dignity and value to the human labour. Human labour itself doesn't have it. So E is most appropriate.

Vicks said: (Aug 30, 2013)  
Option C is correct due to first line of the paragraph.

Option E incorrect because it is a premise that is not focus on the sole of the paragraph. For "greater leveler of men" does not best support the paragraph when it is primarily focused on humanitarian being the focus. "greater dignity and value that it imparts to human labour. ".

Vik said: (Oct 24, 2013)  
My way of explaining why E is not correct. (Initially, I opted for "E") It is said that individual productivity ... fixes social status.

Thus, the industrial society per se is not a greater fixer/leveller. (*and even if it were - I guess the text should have another society being compared with industrial) When the level of your labour value is increasing due to your efforts - you are a leveller.

Your increased labour value equalizes you with someone who are having the same labour value.

"In a highly industrialized society, there is no essential difference between Brahmin and Dalit, Muslim and Hindu; they are equally useful and hence equally valuable for in the industrial society individual productivity fixes the size of the pay cheque and this fixes social status. ".

It clearly means "industrial society is a great leveller of men".

Navya said: (Feb 28, 2014)  
I think castes and religious are man made, all humans are equal.

Nitin Goyal said: (Apr 8, 2014)  
I think option C is right it is clearly mention in 1 st two lines that technology impart dignity and value.

Sohan Gupta said: (May 30, 2015)  
One of the important humanitarian by-products of technology is the greater dignity and value that it imparts to human labour. This lines support the answer.

Ankur Singh said: (Jun 7, 2015)  
I believe option "E" is correct and not "C" as claimed by the system.

Salman said: (Jun 11, 2015)  
Why I think e is not correct.

Technology imparts to human labour.

That means human labour doesn't already or definitely have dignity and value. Technology gives those to human labour.

In a highly industrialized society, there is no essential difference between Brahmin and Dalit, Muslim and Hindu; they are equally useful and hence equally valuable for in the industrial society means industrial society is a great leveler of men.

Simple as that. I always try to follow what is supported very closely than what might be a possibility.

Avanthika said: (Jun 16, 2015)  
I believe "Option E is correct" cause the major portion of the paragraph speaks about how the industrial society is providing equal status to the people of the society irrespective of their social status.

Even when the first line is concerned it say "by-products of technology is the greater dignity and value that it imparts to human labour" which means its technology which is the by-product of industries gives dignity and value to labour.

So the whole para revolves around how industries levels the status of people. :).

Pradeep said: (Jul 12, 2015)  
The first line in the para suggests a is the right answer.

Shashank said: (May 22, 2016)  
I think option E is correct answer.

Jennifer said: (Nov 13, 2016)  
I think E is the correct answer because of the word "greater". It means it's already a known fact that human labour has dignity and value.

Maneo said: (Mar 15, 2017)  
I think E is correct too because the statement emphasizes more on social equality through industry.

Shweta said: (Apr 13, 2017)  
Answer C is correct. I agree.

Abhishek said: (Apr 25, 2017)  
The correct Option is E.

Anaghaa said: (Dec 23, 2017)  
I think B is the right answer.

Joy Mondol said: (Dec 22, 2020)  
Industrial society is not great leveller of men as "individual productivity fixes the size of the paycheque and this fixes social status". But it was a very close option.
