Detail About MCQs

China remained the world’s worst abuser of internet freedom for the seventh consecutive year and failed to score a single point in the ‘violation of user rights’ category. “The ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is tightening its control over the state bureaucracy, the media, online speech, religious groups, universities, businesses, and civil society associations, and it has undermined its own already modest rule-of-law reforms,” the report says. Pakistan is also among the bottom 10 countries on the global rankings on internet freedom released by an international freedom advocacy group. Washington-based Freedom House has published a report titled “Freedom on the Net 2021: The Global Drive to Control Big Tech” which claimed global internet freedom declined for the 11th consecutive year. The report has measured the level of internet freedom for 70 countries and assigns them numerical scores ranging from 100 (the freest nation) to zero (the least free).
