18. Read the given passage carefully and answer the questions that follow.

Globalisation along with free trade can adversely affect the economies of developing countries by not giving an equal playing field by imposing unfavourable conditions. 

With the development of transport and communication systems goods and services can travel faster and farther than ever before. 

However free trade should not only let rich countries enter the markets but allow the developed countries to keep their markets protected from foreign products.

Undertaking international trade is mutually beneficial to nations if it leads to regional specialisation, higher level of production, better standard of living, worldwide availability of goods and services, equalisation of prices and wages and diffusion of knowledge and culture.

International trade can prove to be detrimental to nations if it leads to dependence on other countries, uneven levels of development, exploitation, and commercial rivalry leading to wars. 

Global trade affects many aspects of life; it can impact everything from the environment to the health and well-being of people around the world.

As countries compete to trade more, production and the use of natural resources spiral up, and resources get used up faster than they can be replenished. As a result, marine life is also depleting fast, forests are being cut down and river basins are sold off to private drinking water companies.
