Education is said to be the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits. Education is nothing but studying different kinds of subjects to gain knowledge and understanding and trying to apply it in daily life. Education is not only the book knowledge also learning something practically. For a modern society, education is very important.

Such questions do come in many translations-- the King James as well.. haven't come across the Revised Standard Version yet though.

The sector directly supports three-quarters of the country's population, employs half the labor force, and contributes a large share of foreign exchange earnings.
The main agricultural products are cotton, wheat, rice, sugarcane, fruits, and vegetables, in addition to milk, beef, mutton, and eggs. Pakistan depends on one of the world's largest irrigation systems to support production. There are 2 principal seasons. Cotton, rice, and sugarcane are produced during the kharif season, which lasts from May to November. Wheat is the major rabi crop, which extends from November to April. The key to a much-needed improvement of productivity lies in a more efficient use of resources, principally land and water.
