SOCIETY: Human relations or social relations refer to all of a person's interactions with other individuals. Society is the sum of all of these connections between people who live in a single neighborhood or nation. In a society where people have different needs and difficulties, an organization must meet those needs and provide solutions to the issues that arise. The establishment of these standards, which are based on intelligently and responsibly meeting the essential necessities of housing, education, protection, food, employment, health, and occupation, as well as amusement, clothes, and transportation, is how society is governed. Since an individual cannot make progress in every sector, the development of society is essential to growth.
