Passage

Read the following passage carefully and given answers below:

It has to noted that, although certain overall results had been obtained in the matter of economic growth in the developing countries regarded as a group, little progress had been made towards the establishment of the new international economic order within the framework of negotiations among nations for the purpose of applying the principles adopted in 1974 by the United Nations General Assembly. The situation appeared to be marked by a slowing down at world level in the effort to find a solution to most of the major problems, due to certain inability to control the evolution of societies and economies, and a fairly widespread feeling of uncertainly as to the future. The changes which have occurred between 1978 and 1980 have only magnified the difficulties, so that today there is much talk of deterioration in the international situation. This is immediately apparent in regard to inequalities between human beings, whether considered as individuals or groups or nations. Overal1l economic disparities have not been attenuated. In many countries, per capita gross national product remains less than $300, while in others it is situated at levels ten, twenty or even thirty times higher than this amount. In some rich countries, the average income is a hundred time higher than in the poorest countries. Particularly drastic is the state of penury, destitution and, all too often, homelessness of those populations that may be regarded as history’s most recent rejects: the disinherited masses of the poorest countries. In these countries, whose economic situation is particularly critical, the problems of hunger, disease and ignorance experienced by a large part of the population seem to all but paralyse efforts made to copy with them.
