Question No .7 (22 Marks)
Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow in your answer booklet.
What holds new advances in technology back is not the pace in development. Is it then the fact that
the people are generally conservative or not prepared to accept change by nature? Or is it instead
the inability of the market place to absorb new products fast enough?
There is always a time lag between new inventions and discoveries being made and the release of
any related technology into the public domain. Like an aircraft hovering to land at a busy airport,
new products are frequently held in abeyance, while the market place is emptied of the last ‘latest’
gadget. Meanwhile, the general population is drip-fed information about what is to come. In this
way the public appetite for new products is constantly being whetted.
People’s blind faith in any new technological device prevents them from thinking through the
implications of what is happening. Fewer and fewer people seem to have any serious misgivings
about mankind’s march to some kind of great un foreseen danger Any overhanging dangers are
brushed aside, as are the diminishing band of dissenters.
Answer the following questions:
(a)
Who are conservative people?
(02 Marks)
(b)
What is the shortcoming of the market place stated here?
(03 Marks)
(c)
Between what two forces is a delay in the products entering market?

(d)
Till what situation is cleared are the new products held in abeyance?

(e)
Because of their blind faith what do people do?
