Direction (Q. 1-5): Below is given a passage followed by several possible inferences which can be drawn from the facts stated in the passage. You have to examine each inference separately in the context of the passage and decide upon its degree of truth or falsity.
Cinema's obsession with violence is growing. Most films have a liberal dose of it, and what is even worse is that much of it could have been edited out or not shot at all in the first place. Frames of brutality — cold-blooded murder or sadistic rape — mix and run along with perfect love stories or pleasing family dramas or pure children's fare. With the increasing tendency among our directors and producers to allow their heroes/heroines to act out evil, if only to justify the end, the line between good and bad is disappearing. For teenagers and even those younger, this can cause moral confusion, leaving them to often grapple with this dilemma by arguing that their favourite stars can do no wrong. If they kill, they had to. If they drank, drove and ran over someone, they had no other choice.

The teenagers and youngsters watch movies more frequently than older people.
