** Part 4**

Read the followin passage and answer questions 1-5

If people who commit crimes are not punished, they will go on committing crimes. We have therefore, a police force for investigating crimes and apprehending criminals. In the same way, if there are disputes among persons over property, contracts, rights, and other matters, they have to be decided in a court of law. These are called civil cases and are decided by the law courts according to the civil law. Cases of crime are dealt with according to the civil law. It is not easy to find out whether a person accused of committing a crime is really guilty. So in every such case evidence has to be produced to show whether he did or did not commit the crime. In civil cases also each party to a case has to produce evidence to prove its claim. The process of administering justice is quite complicated, but if justice is not done, there will be great disorder.

1. A police force is necessary because it

1. settles disputes among persons

2. decides civil cases

3. inquires into crimes and arrests criminals

4. punishes those who commit crimes

2. Civil cases are decided by

1. the police

2. the civil courts

3. the public

4. the administration

3. To find out if the accussed is guilty, we need

1. the evidence

2. the decision of the court

3. the criminal law

4. the administration

4. A Person is adjudged guilty if there is

1. a case against him

2. an accusation against him

3. an evidence against him

4. an arrest warrant against him

5. “The process of administering justice is quite complicated, but if justice is not done, there will be great disorder”. The above sentence implies that

1. disorder results in the process of administering justice

2. disorder is created because justice is administered in a complicated way

3. absence of justice leads to disorder

4. the cause of disorder is always absence of justice
