Researchers pushing the limits of optical design are learning from a simple sea creature crusted with tiny lenses, each one smaller and more perfect than any human engineer could devise. The brittle star, as the organism is called, sees with its bones. Built into the starfish`s tough, calcite skeleton are arrays of microscopic crystals that focus light ten limes more precise than any manufactured micro-optics. Each brittle star lens is one-thousandth of an inch across, composed of a calcite crystal that grows into a flawless eyepiece naturally corrected for any distortions, double images or any other optical aberrations. The bead like lenses cover skeletal plates on the brittle star`s five supple arms and its disk-shaped body.

What conclusion is the author leading us to?

 
Brittle stars can see with their bones.
The microscopic crystals in a brittle star focus light much sharper than any other living organism.
Some living organisms control optical structures with a precision beyond the reach of present-day engineering.
A brittle star has tiny eyepieces all over its arms and body.
Rare species have rare quality attributes.

The passage talks about only 1 creature. So the 3rd option mentioning 'some' creatures cannot be correct!

'Everybody' should have been followed with 'himself or herself'. Please correct me if wrong.

Directions: The following passage is followed by a question with five options. Choose the best option.

Military and economic strength are important means for frightening off resistance and buying up governmental consent. Indeed much of foreign policy statecraft is about bargaining for the right price in selling off government consent for `returns` from the more powerful states such as the U.S., and then convincing one`s own public that this is all being done for the `national interest`. Passive consent, e.g. resigned acceptance because one feels it is futile to resist the seemingly all-powerful, will do. But active consent, i.e. coming to believe in the virtues of the mission of empire is, of course, much better.

Which of the following would the author least likely to agree with?

 
Military strength is used to buy governmental consent.
Resigning to the powerful based on the feeling that resistance against the seemingly all mighty is worthless is an example of passive consent.
The aim of foreign policy is to devise statecraft for bargaining the best price for governmental consent.
Powerful states like USA often indulge in arm-twisting the weaker states.
All of the above
