Q.

1). The situations in which violence occurs and the nature of that violence tends to be clearly defined at least in theory, as in the proverbial Irishman’s question: ‘Is this a private fight or can anyone join in?’

2). So the actual risk to outsiders, though no doubt higher than our societies, is calculable.

3). Probably the only uncontrolled applications of force are those of social superiors to social inferiors and even here there are probably some rules.

4). However binding the obligation to kill, members of feuding families engaged in mutual massacre will be genuinely appalled if by some mischance a bystander or outsider is killed.

Solution:
Option(A) is correct

The clue to this question comes from the word ‘calculable’ in sentence 2: So the actual risk to outsiders, though no doubt higher than our societies, is calculable.

How does something become ‘calculable’? Sentence 1 gives the answer through the phrase ‘clearly defined theory’.

Something becomes calculable when it is clearly defined in theory. No other sentence could give answers to ‘calculable’.

Therefore, the link 12 was clearly marked. The link 12 is present in option A only Therefore option A is the answer.
