Passage

Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it:

Recently, a newspaper article mourned the total disappearance of common house sparrow. This was a comment on the city’s perceptible movement towards edging out flora and fauna of the city. In the rapid urbanisation, multi-storied apartments grew and large scale felling of trees became necessary. Last week, however, seven pairs of theses sparrows were spotted in suburb. Possibly the greenery of this place has created for these birds which like their proximity to human beings, and have made a comeback. A systematic development of trees and shrubs all over the city would woo the absentee house sparrow to our midst.
