Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions based on your understanding (Q. 96 - 100) :
In the agentic sociocognitive view, people are self-organizing, proactive, self-reflecting, and self-regulating, not just reactive organisms shaped and shepherded by external events. People have the power to influence their own actions to produce certain results. The capacity to exercise control over one’s thought processes, motivation, affect, and action operates through mechanisms of personal agency. Human agency has been conceptualized in at least three different ways - as either autonomous agency, mechanically reactive agency or emergent interactive agency. The notion that humans operate as entirely independent agents has few serious advocates, although it is sometimes invoked in caricatures of cognitive theories of human behaviour. The tools for the exercise of agency are derived, in large part, from experiences but what is created by their generative use is not reducible to those experiences. Human action, being socially situated, is the product of a dynamic interplay of personal and situational influences. A second approach to the self system is to construe it as mechanically reactive agency. It is an internal system through which external influences operate mechanistically on action, but individuals exert no motivative, self-reflective, self-reactive, creative or directive influence on the process. The self system is merely a repository for implanted structures and a conduit for external influences. The more dynamic models operating holistically include multilevel neural networks. However, a diverse mix of parallel distributed neural activity cannot remain fragmented. It requires an integrative system. Given the proactive nature of human functioning, such a system must have agentic capabilities as well as integrative reactive ones. Agentic functions get lodged in a hidden network operating without any consciousness. Consciousness is the very substance of phenomenal and functional mental life. It provides the information base for thinking about events, planning, constructing courses of action and reflecting on the adequacy of one’s thinking and actions. There is an important difference between being conscious of the experiences one is undergoing, and consciously producing given experiences. For example, consciousness of one’s heart rate and consciously and intentionally doing things known to elevate one’s heart rate illustrate the difference between passive undergoing and agentic doing. The purposive accessing and deliberative processing of information to fashion efficacious courses of action represent the functional consciousness. Consciousness cannot be reduced to an epiphenomenon of the output of a mental process realized mechanically at nonconscious lower levels. In the connectionist line of theorizing, sensory organs deliver up information through their diverse pathways to the hidden network acting as the cognitive agent that does the construing, planning, motivating and regulating. However, stripped of consciousness and agentic capability of decision and action, people are mere automatons undergoing actions devoid of any subjectivity, conscious regulation, phenomenological life, or personal identity. 

96. In the agentic socio-cognitive view, “human action” is the product of :
(1) A dynamic interplay of personal and situational influences
(2) Personal determinants and mechanisms of human functioning
(3) Social bespoke and practices
(4) Schematic processing of experiences and memory representation
Answer Key: 1

97. Why the second approach to the ‘self system’ is construed by the author as “mechanically reactive agency” ?
(1) An external system through which internal influences operate mechanically.
(2) An internal system through which external influences operate mechanically on action having no directive influence exerted by the individuals on process.
(3) An external system through which external influences operate mechanically on action.
(4) An external system through which external influences operate in which individuals exert direct influence on the process.
Answer Key: 2

98. According to the agentic view of “Personality”, what does the ‘self system’ meant to the author ?
(1) A Repository for implanted structures and a conduit for internal influences.
(2) A Repository for implanted structures and a conduit for external influences.
(3) An archive for preserving unusual human instincts.
(4) A Pen-stock to restrict the flow of unusual and instant human behaviour.
Answer Key: 2

99. What does ‘consciousness’ conceptually meant to the author ?
(1) A demonstration of physical condition based on situation
(2) The very substance of phenomenal and functional mental life
(3) The rigid state of mental condition.
(4) A Spiritual state of mind
Answer Key: 2

100. How does the author differentiate between “passive undergoing” and “agentic doing” ?
(1) Conscious of the experiences one is undergoing and consciously producing given experiences.
(2) Conscious of the experiences one is undergoing, but fail to use the given experiences.
(3) Conscious of the past experience and their wrongful use irrelevant to need.
(4) Unconscious of the experience and their non-intentional use.
Answer Key: 2
