Individuals owed their existence to their parents; without whose countless sacrifices, they would never survive nor grow into sane human beings. They realized their potential in a stable and peaceful society, made possible by the efforts of thousands of anonymous men and women. They became rational, reflective and moral beings within a rich civilization created by scores of sages, saints, savants and scientists.

Which of the following best completes the passage ?

A. Even a whole lifetime was not enough to pay back what they owed their parents, let alone all the others.
B. In short, every human being owed his humanity to others and benefited from a world, to the creation of which, he had not contributed anything.
C. Furthermore, their creditors were by their very nature unspecifiable
D. To talk about 'repaying' the debts did not therefore make sense except in a clumsy and metaphorical way of describing one's response to unsolicited but
indispensable gifts.
E. The only thing he can do is to make his contributions for the future.

Please give Kudos if you found the question Interesting !!!!!!!!!!!!!
