Q: What does But the material costs of hung juries do not warrant losing the benefit to society of the unanimous verdict. mean?
A: There are 12 people in the jury. Suppose that after 6 months of presenting evidence and arguing in the courtroom, the jury cannot agree unanimously on a verdict. This is called a hung jury and, in a sense, it means that the state wasted a lot of money on the trial. But it's still better to risk the loss of money than to risk a wrong verdict by the jury. So the conclusion is that the requirement that the jury return a unanimous verdict is worthwhile.

A: Approach the materials in your own way, regardless of whether there are teachers or books that are known to be good. It's only when you get out of those stereotypical notions that you begin to see that it was only a partial version of three-dimensional reality, which is also linked to other interesting topics you later choose to learn. Stick to what you think is right. Have faith in your own unique style of learning. It will all pay off (eventually/in the long run).

Eventually and in the long run have the same meaning, so using both of them is redundant.
