    Default turns the world will take

    Which is more similar to "turns" here? "change" or "trend"?

    30)The directions and turns the world will take are embedded in the past and in the present. We often recognize them retrospectively, but our purpose is to anticipate what lies ahead. To do that successfully, we need to keep a distance and a clear eye. Newspapers help us have such an eye. They are not only the first draft of history but the first to give us a glimpse of the future, (B)[because / because of] what we are doing will determine the future. Newspapers provide stories and facts about politics, culture, social events, and trends. But they also carry personal opinions and irrelevant details that are not likely to be signals about the future. While it is crucial to be well instructed, what is also important is not the amount of information we collect but how (C)[conscious / consciously] we receive it. In a verifying and selective process, we can find the components that bring together the pictures of the future.
