Answer questions 1-5 based on the given passage.
About four hundred years ago, many people believed that they lived on stationary earth, which itself is situated at the center of the universe. The world beyond the solar system was a mystery to all. The submicroscopic domain of atoms and molecules was completely unknown. Not even a single law of nature was accurately formulated. The Copernican theory of the solar system (the theory in which the sun occupies the central position) had been published but it had so many objections against it. There was scarcely any activity that could be called as science. Mathematics was just in its infancy.
