Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow:
Time is invaluable. It flows ceaselessly on without any consideration for the convenience of any man, however important or high-placed he may be. And time once gone is gone forever. Lost wealth may be regained by industry, lost knowledge by study, lost health by temperance and medicine but lost time cannot be recovered by any means.
Many do not realise this. There waste their time, thinking that they would make up the loss in future. But the hope may never be realised. Every moment of our time has its particular duty. Putting off our works, therefore, means over-burdening us, that is making our tasks heavier and more difficult in future. This is why students who neglect their studies from day to day often fail in spite of very hard labour before the examination. They can neither acquire knowledge nor build character and suffer all their life in consequence. Besides, who can say what this future will be, – whether it will not be worse than the present? Some unforeseen obstacles may arise, we may be suddenly taken ill, there may be some family calamity; financial difficulties may fall upon us and then we shall find that the task has become much harder, if not too hard. Moreover, if we begin to put off things, we shall soon get into the habit of indolence and slowly bring about our own ruin.
