    Explanation
    The missing line in the verse is "tadatmanam srjamyaham," which means "I manifest myself." This line completes the verse and is part of a famous verse from the Bhagavad Gita. The verse is spoken by Lord Krishna to Arjuna and emphasizes that whenever there is a decline in righteousness and an increase in unrighteousness, the divine manifests itself to restore balance and protect the virtuous. The correct answer reflects the continuation of this message, where the divine manifests itself for the establishment of righteousness and the destruction of evil.

    • D.

      One who overcomes ego through knowledge

    Correct Answer
    C. The doubting Soul

    The correct answer is "The doubting Soul." This is because the statement "There is no happiness for the one who performs actions without desiring fruits, one who purifies with the fire of knowledge, and one who overcomes ego through knowledge" suggests that all of these qualities lead to happiness, except for the doubting soul. The doubting soul implies a lack of faith or trust, which can hinder one's ability to experience happiness.

    Correct Answer
    B. Sword of Knowledge
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Sword of Knowledge" because it implies that doubts born out of ignorance can be cleared through acquiring knowledge. Just like a sword can cut through obstacles, knowledge can eliminate doubts and provide clarity. Fasting, retiring to caves in the Himalayas, and satsang (spiritual discourse) may have their own benefits, but they do not directly address the issue of clearing doubts born out of ignorance.
