Directions for questions 8 to 12: Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
Wealth should not be an end in itself but only a means of satisfying one’s as well as others’ needs. It should 
be a means of creating a happy and humane society. Riches can be profitably spent in removing the wants of 
the poor and the needy, by providing them with food and clothing, by establishing hospitals for the sick, 
shelters for children who have none to look after them, and old-age homes to provide comfort and company to 
the growing number of old and helpless people. Wealth can also be put to public use by establishing trusts to 
open up more and more educational institutions, to finance research work for promotion of science, health
care and agriculture. When used only as a means of creating more and more luxuries and procuring objects 
of sensual gratification, it leads to corruption and sin. Even wealth used only to generate more wealth loses its 
intrinsic worth. We should not forget that wealth came into existence to facilitate the fulfilment of human needs 
and development of society.

(1) One should not stop creating wealth
(2) Creating more and more wealth should not be one’s object
