Directions: Read the passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words/ phrases have been given in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.

In a country where more than 65 percent people still live in rural areas, the government is well aware of the political danger of being branded anti-farmer. Opposition parties have thrown their weight behind the protesters, giving a further headache to the government, which lacks a majority in the upper house of parliament. The ordinance has to be ratified by both the houses of parliament within six weeks of its promulgation. Speaking in parliament, the Indian Prime Minister struck a conciliatory tone saying he was ready to tweak the ordinance if it was deemed farmer. The government amended the land bill to placate the opposition as well as some of its allies. It passed the lower house of the parliament, where the government has a majority. Critics have questioned the haste with which the government made the changes to the 2013 land law, which was backed by PM's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) while in opposition.

1) The government has gone against the welfare of common people.
