The passage given below is followed by four summaries. Choose the option that best captures the author ’s position.
For each of the past three years, temperatures have hit peaks not seen since the birth of meteorology, and probably not for more than 110,000 years. The amount of carbon dioxide in the air is at its highest level in 4 million years. This does not cause storms like Harvey- there have always been storms and hurricanes along the Gulf of Mexico- but it makes them wetter and more powerful. As the seas warm, they evaporate more easily and provide energy to storm fronts. As the air above them warms, it holds more water vapour. For every half a degree Celsius in warming, there is about a 3% increases in atmospheric moisture content. Scientists call this the Clausius-Clapeyron equation. This means the skies fill more quickly and have more to dump. The storm surge was greater because sea levels have risen 20 cm as a result of more than 100 years of humanstorm surge was greater because sea levels have risen 20 cm as a result of more than 100 years of human–related global warming which has melted glaciers and thermally expanded the volume of seawater.

Swami Vivekanand had said, "So long as the millions live in hunger and ignorance, I hold everyone traitor, who, having been educated at their expense, pays not the least heed to them".
This issue has become relevant in the light of the recent fall from grace of the American capitalist image. The Enron, World.com and Xerox exposures have revealed the ugly side of Western style capitalism under which, in the quest for short-term gains, wrong doing are overlooked. As a result people have lost trust in corporate performance and those involved in it.
Further, many of those involved in these scandals were highly educated. In India too, we have had our share of such scams in the stock market and the actors involved in them were educated men.
Earning of profits is, no doubt, the main aim of any business. But, if they are earned with principles they enrich people’s lives. As the Jagadguru Sankaracharya says, ‘All for each and each for all’ should be the motto of enlightened men.
JRD Tata used to say ‘While profit motive, no doubt, provides the main spark for any economic activity any enterprise which is not motivated by consideration of urgent service to the community becomes obsolete soon and cannot fulfill its real role in modern society.
When we talk of investing in education, a question arises as to what kind of education needs to be given to the youngsters. Our aim is to evolve not only an affluent society; but an egalitarian, just, humane and compassionate society. For that we need people who possess not only high skills but high values as well.
So the need of the hour is not only skill-based education but also value-inspired and value-based education. We can find answer for the present sickness in contemporary civilization in the Indian philosophy.

Read the situation below and answer the question:
A Transnational Company gets his  spring water from Nagdah, a village in Madhubani district.. The unprocessed natural spring water is directly bottled by the TNC. The company brands it as 'Tisleri ' and sells at 50% premium vis-a-vis other brands that sell processed water.
The local panchayat,  controls the spring water usage. Hence, the company signed a 100-year lease with the panchayat for exclusive access to the spring water for business purposes. This contract contributes 50% to the panchayat's revenues besides providing 500 jobs in the panchayat. The spring also meets domestic and agricultural needs of the people of Nagdah and the surrounding villages.
The TNC has spotted traces of chemicals in their fortnightly water quality analysis. The TNCrealizes that this is due to the contaminated agricultural runoff, flowing into the spring from the nearby fields where farmers use pesticides and fertilizers. This requires an immediate solution. Which of the following options will BEST resolve the situation for the TNC?
