Verbal Ability - Comprehension - Discussion

At this stage of civilisation, when many nations are brought in to close and vital contact for good and evil, it is essential, as never before, that their gross ignorance of one another should be diminished, that they should begin to understand a little of one another's historical experience and resulting mentality. It is the fault of the English to expect the people of other countries to react as they do, to political and international situations. Our genuine goodwill and good intentions are often brought to nothing, because we expect other people to be like us. This would be corrected if we knew the history, not necessarily in detail but in broad outlines, of the social and political conditions which have given to each nation its present character.


According to the author of 'Mentality' of a nation is mainly product of its

[A]. history
[B]. international position
[C]. politics
[D]. present character

Well I think the answer should be D, because I think it is the history (experience) has framed their mined-set and that has given then a new character.

Yes, as the question asks what's the mentality is a product, means it is asking due to which factors their present mentality is of that type, so its due to historical experiences.
