The next there items are based on the following passage :

Before performing an operation in the hospital, a doctor administers a drug or gas to make the patient unconscious of pain. This state of unconsciousness is known as ‘anaesthesia’, from the Greek word meaning ‘loss of feeling’. The substance causing loss of feeling is called anaesthetic. The discovery of anaesthetics in the 19th century was one of the greatest achievements in the field of medicine. Before anaesthetics, operations were done in very rare cases. Patients needing surgery were given alcohol or various drugs extracted from plant juices to dull pain. Even then, operations were always very painful, and were undertaken only in extreme emergencies. Today, with effective anaesthetics it is possible to produce many hours of pain-free unconsciousness, and this enables surgeons to perform complex, life saving operations.
