But to relate this destructiveness, this evidence of a spiritual malignancy within us, to an instinct and to correlate this instinct associated with love, this was one of the later flowers of the genius of Freud.

  2. Associate ourselves with love 
  3. Relate destructiveness to an instinct and correlate this with love 
  4. Teach the child about destructiveness 
  5. Threaten the child

28. The synonym of 'decimated' is
  1. Annihilate
  2. Protect 
  3. Dpiritual 
  4. Develop
  5. Wise

29. 'Malignancy' means
