(Q nos. 1 to 3): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below.

Emile Durkheim, the first person to be formally recognized as a sociologist and the most scientific of the pioneers conducted a study, that stands as a research model for sociologists today.

His investigation of suicide was in fact the first sociological study to use Statistics. In suicide(1964, originally published in 1897) Durkheim documented his contention that some aspects of human behavior – even some without reference to individuals.

Like all of Durkheim’s work, suicide must be viewed within the context of his concern for social integration. Durkheim wanted to see if suicide rates within a social entity (for example, a group, organization or society are related to the degree to which individuals are socially involved (integrated and regulated).

Durkheim described three types of suicide is promoted when individuals do not have sufficient social ties. Since single (never married) adults, for example, are not heavily involved with family life, they are more likely to commit suicide than married adults. Altruistic suicide, on the other hand, is more likely to occur when social integration is too strong.

The ritual suicide of Hindu widows on their husband’s funeral pyres is one example. Military personnel, trained to lay down their lives for their country, provide another illustration.

Durkheim’s third type of suicide-anemic suicide increases when the social regulation of individuals is disrupted. For example, suicide rates increase during economic depressions.

People who suddenly find themselves without a job or without hope of finding one are more prone to kill themselves. Suicides may also increase during periods of prosperity. People may loosen their social ties by taking new jobs, moving to new communities or finding new mates.

a) to document that suicide can be explained without reference to the individual
