Read the passage and answer the question that follows
If our thought is to e clear and we are to succeed in communicating it to other people, we must have some method of fixing the meaning of the words we use. When we use a word whose meaning is not certain, we may well be asked to define it. There is a useful traditional device for doing this by indicating the class to which whatever is indicated by the term belongs, and also the particular property which distinguishes it from all other members of the same class. Thus we may define a whale as a marine animal that spouts. Marine animals in this definition indicates the general class to which the whale belongs, and spouts indicates the particular property that distinguishes whales from other such marine animals as fishes, seals, jellyfish and lobsters. In the same way, we can define an even number as a finite integer divisible by two, or a democracy as a system of government in which the people themselves rule.
There are other ways, of course, of indicating the meanings of words. We may, for example, find it hard to make a suitable definition of the word animal, so we say that an animal is such a thing as a rabbit, dog, fish or goat. Similarly, we may say that religion is such a system as Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Buddhism. This way of indicating the meaning of a term by enumerating examples of what it includes is obviously of limited usefulness. If we indicated our use of the animal as above, our hearers might, for example, be doubtful whether a sea anemone or a slug was to be included in the class of animals. It is, however, a useful way of supplementing a definition if the itself is definite without being easily understandable.
