Please read the following:
The virtue in most request is conformity. Self-reliance is its aversion. It loves not realities and creators, but names and customs.
My first confusion is:
Generally “it” should refer to self-reliance but if it is so then sentence goes like this:
“In most cases virtue is conformity. But self-reliance is just the opposite of conformity. Self-reliance does not love realities and creators. Self-reliance loves names and customs” which I don’t think makes sense because this sounds like those of “conformity”.
So “it" should refer to “conformity” though the sentence is not in a structure that I am familiar with due to the use of it. Is that right?
And if “it” refers to conformity then the key should be “c” based on the following question:
According to the passage, self-reliance is marked by _____.
a. conformity b. names c. creation d. customs
Is that right?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
