Read the following passage to answer the questions no.4-5.

The World Bank on 1st July, 2015 elevated Bangladesh and other three countries as lower- middle income countries from lower-income countries. It was determined on the basis of their per capita gross national income (GNI). The lending agency calculated per capita GNI on the basis of the gross national income of a country by converting it to US dollars divided by the midyear population using its Atlas method. Apart from Bangladesh, the other three countries that got their status upgraded a per capita GNI ranging from 1,046 to 4,125 US dollars. Mongolia and Paraguay moved from lower-middle income status to upper middle income, a group with yearly income leaves of 4,126 to 12,735 US dollars.

It is not doubt a hopeful sign for Bangladesh. This transition indicated that Bangladesh’s goal to become a middle income country by 2021 may indeed be achievable, if we can keep up this consistent growth in per capita income. The new status greatly improved the image of the country as may encourage foreign investments and thereby rejuvenate the economy further.
