In each of these questions, a paragraph is given that has blank in it. Five sentences (1), (2), (3), (4) and (5) are suggested. Out of these, only one fits the blank in the context of the paragraph. Pick that sentence as the answer.

The piles of wrapping paper, tape and string are our languages, computer languages included, with all their rules and structures.

The bit which cannot be covered by the tape or paper are those parts of reality no human can escape: birth, hunger, and animal passions.
