Directions(1-5): In the following questions, you have a passage with questions. Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives.
The recent change to all-volunteer armed forces in the United States will eventually produce a gradual increase in the proportion of women in the armed forces and in the variety of women’s assignments, but probably not the dramatic gains for women-that might have been expected. This is so even though the armed forces operate in an ethos of institutional change oriented toward occupational equality and under the federal, sanction of equal pay for equal work. The difficulty is that womens are unlikely to be trained for any direct combat operations.
A significant portion of the larger society remains uncomfortable as yet with extending equality in this direction. Therefore, for women in the military, the search for equality will still be based on functional equivalence, not identity or even similarity of task. Opportunities seem certain to arise. The growing emphasis on deterrence is bound to offer increasing scope for women to become involved in novel types of noncombat military assignments.
