Read the passage carefully and choose the correct answer.
Reading, as you know, is a continuous and never ending process.
If you do very little reading, or if you read only material that offers no
challenge to your comprehension, your reading will be of very little
use. Once we reach a certain age, or once our formal schooling is
completed, many of us become so restricted in our choice of .reading
that we rarely read any new type of reading experience. We tend to
read only books in our professional or business field, or only
inspirational books, or only our favorite newspapers every morning, or
only one magazine for which we have developed a preference. And
the trouble starts here. You should neither read only for entertainment
nor only for information but you should also read for intellectual
growth, for mental stimulation, for enriching your background of
knowledge, for wisdom, and for broader outlook and mature
understanding. What kind of books should you read to continue your
intellectual growth, to gain a background for opinion and for
judgment? The answer is simple one: Read books in fields you have
- little or no acquaintance with, books that will open for you new
horizons of learning, books that will help you explore new areas of
knowledge and experience, books that will make the world and
people more understandable to you. Sadly, more and more people
today are giving up the printed word in favor of being entertained and
informed by watching TV, a popular entertainment ,device present at
almost homes. More and more children are being subjected to TV
programming, perhaps as a babysitter. More than two hours of TV
time per day are now a part of children development, generating
physiological and mental problems that are of growing concern

b. Books that will help you explore new areas of knowledge and
c. Books that will open for you new horizons of learning
