Read the following text and choose the correct answer in each of the

following questions : (47-50)

While paleontological evidence may give us a clue to the evolution of

human forms, only the most superficial evidence can be obtained

for the development of function. A little may be inferred from size and form of the brain cavity and that of the jaw, in so far as it indicates the possibility of articulate speech. We may obtain some information on the development of erect posture, but the physiological processes that occurred in past generations are not accessible to observation. All the conclusions that we may arrive at are based on very indirect evidence. The mental life of man also can be studied experimentally only among living races. It is, however, possible to infer some of its aspects by what past generations have done. Historical data permit us to study the culture of past times, in a few localities, as in the eastern Mediterranean area, India, China as far back as a few thousand years – and a limited amount of information on the mental life of man may be obtained from these data. We may even go farther back and extend our studies over the early remains of human activities. Objects of varied character, made by man and belonging to periods as early as the Quaternary, have been found in great quantities, and their study reveals at least certain aspects of what man has been able to do during these times. The data of prehistoric archaeology reveal with progress of time a decided branching out of human activities. While from earliest periods nothing remains but a few

simple stone implements, we see an increasing differentiation of form of implements used by man. During the Quaternary, the use of fire had been discovered, artistic work of high aesthetic value had been achieved, and painted records of human activities had been made. Soon after the beginning of the recent geological period the beginnings of agriculture appear, and the products of human labour take on new forms at a rapidly accelerating rate. While in early Quaternary times we do not observe any change for thousands of years, so that the observer might imagine that the products of human hands were made according to an innate instinct, like the cells of a beehive, the rapidity of change becomes the greater the nearer we approach our time, and at an early period we recognize that the arts of man cannot be instinctively determined, but are the cumulative result of experience.

Q47. Which of the following gives the information on the evolution of erect posture ?

(A) Palaeontology

(B) Cytology

(C) Somatology

(D) Physiology
