Euthanasia continues to be an option for many pet owners who do not want their terminally-ill pet to suffer, or who may find the veterinary costs for continued treatment of their pet to be prohibitive. As an owner, the emotions one feel at this time often may make it hard to think, communicate, and make decisions. Therefore, it is often helpful to discuss the process of euthanasia with one’s veterinarian.

1. Which of the following is a valid assumption?

(a) For owners, euthanizing a pet is emotionally a very difficult thing to do.

(b) As hard as it is, the owner needs to consider the financial cost as well as the emotional cost of continuing to care for the ill pet.

(c) A vet can suggest the treatment options, cost involved, possible outcomes, and chances of recovery if your pet is sick; hence, can help make an objective decision about euthanasia.

(d) None of the above.



British museums are different and that is their strength. The collection of Hans Sloane, which forms the basis of the British Museum, was left in trust to the nation. The British Museum was created for the people and enriched by the collections of its citizens; it is part of civic society. This sets it apart too, from major American institutions, created by the generosity of private philanthropists – but run as private institutions.

2. It can be logically inferred from the above paragraph that

(a) British Museums are entirely made by collections from the people.

(b) American Museums would be more efficient than British Museums.

(c) it is easier to run British Museums because of the support of the people.

(d) British Museums are not run as private institutions.
