DIRECTION (Q. Nos. 76-81): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow:

Mystics in India say that the whole universe is just a sound. That way sound represents the basic energy of the universe. Sounds have a great impact on us and different sounds have different effect on people. Yesterday, walking back from party, I started to cross the street when I heard the sound of a coin dropping. It wasn’t much but, as I turned, my eyes caught the heads of several other people turning too. A lady had dropped what appeared to be a one Rupee coin. The tinkling sound of a coin dropping on pavement is a definite attention-getter. Whatever the coin is, no one ignores the sound of it. It got me thinking about sounds again. We are besieged by so many sounds that attract varying degrees of attention. People in Mumbai seldom turn to look when a fire brigade vehicle, a police car or an ambulance comes screaming along the street. Even the loud siren is hardly heard there. It is often ignored. But at home in my village of Dinapur, it’s different. The distant howl of a police car, an emergency vehicle or a fire siren brings me to my feet if I’m seated and brings me to the window if I’m in bed. The loudest sounds do not necessarily have the greatest impact on us; rather it’s the quietest sounds that attract out attention the most. In the middle of the night, I can hear a dripping tap a hundred yards away through closed doors. I’ve been hearing little creaking noises and sounds which my imagination turns into footsteps in the middle of the night for thirty years in our house. How come I never hear those sounds in the daytime? I’m quite clear in my mind what the good sounds are and what the bad sounds are. I’ve turned against whistling, for instance. I used to think of it as the mark of a happy worker but lately I’ve been associating the whistler with a nervous person making compulsive noises. The gentle sounds of meditation music bring to my mind the patterns of the vast sky and through which I could peep into the ocean of my consciousness.

76. The sound of a coin dropping makes people……..
(a)        think of money                                   
(b)        look at each other
(c)        pay attention to it
