6. Read the passage and answer the following question.
Effects of taxes have shifted the mindset of people for migration. The government is forced to consider ways to raise more revenues because of increasing the budget deficit. Inventors would not give respond much to tax rates. Highly skilled individuals are very much important for receiving good economy of the country. Their decisions are hard to understand but high skilled immigrants are disproportionally contributing to innovation. For instance, Alexander G. Bell (the inventor of the telephone) and Charles Simonyi (developer at Microsoft), as both of them are immigrants. This is a surprising factor that migration rates increase in skill and inventors are paid high for skill distribution. But all of inventors are not same, in fact, they are very much different from their quality and innovativeness which could be easily measurable through the economic value of an inventor’s patents. When more a patent is cited, the presumed value of it would also be higher.

7. Read the passage and answer the following question.
Most of us don’t know that May 9 is Europe day. In high school or Latin class, you might remember April 21. On May 9, 1950, French foreign minister – Robert Schuman proposed combining French and West German coal and steel industries. This is same like our Declaration of Independence. Europe day doesn’t draw many crowds. Europeans prefer to celebrate it on May 5, because it was the day when the Council of Europe was established in 1949. While there are some others who celebrate it on September 26 because of European Day of Languages. Confusion increases more due to May 1, a holiday in much of Europe as both a traditional spring festival and the European equivalent of Labor Day.
Which of the following are wrong with respect to the passage?[A]. Bewilderment in the minds of people regarding Roman Independence Day.
