Directions to Solve
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.

Yes, I agree, the right answer is D, because having good " socio-political conditions" will result in having a better understanding of other nations, and that will result in a better "mentality" or "mindset", and thus the character of a nation is dependent on that.

Hope it helps.

@All.

I would disagree with the answer because socio-political conditions will change according to the government and its approach to every situation and challenge. But the cultural heritage is purely value-based it makes the people to abide by it unconditionally.
