Read the passage carefully and the correct answers for the questions that follow:
The role that the newspaper plays in delivering the news of the day is obvious but it does much more than that. The newspaper constructs a sense of continuous time that moves sequentially in discreet steps. As we hold the morning paper with a cup of tea in the other hand, we assume the vantage position of overseeing the world that is relevant to us and examining it state at a glance. The world may be full of chaotic events that we cannot comprehend but the newspaper packages it for us in terms we become familiar with and things appear to be within control. Order and its primacy is implicit in the idea of a newspaper, unrest is a deviation form which the world will eventually recover.
