Q.:- Give two examples where modern development that is associated with progress has led to problems. You may like to think of areas related to environmental issues, nuclear weapons or disease.
Example 1 is related to the soil degradation due to rampant use of modern chemical fertilizers to increase the yield of the land in agriculture. This led to removing most of the soil nutrients and large scale consumption of water, finally making the soil sterile and lowering of the water table.
Example 2 is related to the development of nuclear weapons like the atom bomb. The dropping of atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki killed many people and also deformed or diseased many more due to the nuclear radiation that spread after the bombs exploded.
