Directions (Qs. 1 to 3):Slide 4: Global outlook remains uncertain, given the weak growth impulses in major advanced economies, especially in the USA, and the down side risks to such recovery emanating from the volatility in international crude oil prices and the continuing geopolitical tension in the Middle East. However, resilience of India's performance has been vindicated by its successfully handling in the recent past a series of external shocks, like the Asian crisis of 1997, crude oil shock of 2000 and the synchronized slowdown of global activity in 2001. India's external position continues to remain strong with the rising level of foreign exchange reserves providing a cushion against any such major shocks. The current account surplus reflects both, strength in goods and service exports and buoyant net transfer. Revival of domestic demand is likely to boost further main sources of capital inflows, thus aiding in further reserve accumulation in the short run. Surging foreign exchanges reserves have provided an opportunity towards further relaxation of existing capital controls. Such measured approach towards capital account convertibility needs to be continued. The rising reserves also provide a greater flexibility to exchange rate management towards developing deeper market for foreign exchange transactions. The reserves further provide an opportunity to expedite completion of trade liberalization agenda. Notwithstanding various reforms, India's tariffs remain high by Indian and international standards and its trade regime remains relatively restrictive. The broad road map for liberalization of customs tariff has already been indicated in the Union BudgetSlide 5: 2002-03 and has been further detailed in the Ministry of Finance task force report on Indirect Taxation. Faster implementation of such tariff reforms (without any prejudice to our negotiations on this issue under Doha mandate in WTO), apart from further removing anti-export bias and simplifying the trade regime, would stimulate imports and create necessary demand for foreign exchange. Such imports liberalization is also likely to relieve any upward pressure on the rupee and would bring the useful efficiency gain to the economy. Medium term BOP outlook would depend upon several factors. A robust growth in exports remains one of the most critical factor in the long term viability of external sector. Uneven performance of merchandise exports in the recent past, if continued, could introduce a structural weakness in the balance of payments in the medium term. Exports thus hold the key in achieving a sustainable balance between the requirement of higher growth and the imperative of ensuring viability in the external sector. Micro strategies for export growth based on various policy pronouncements therefore, need to be designed to put export growth on a higher and sustainable growth trajectory. On the imports side, given our rising independence on imported crude oil, the economy needs to be insulated from continuing volatility in international crude oil prices impacting on our balance of payments and the oil security of the country. Efforts towards strengthening of the service sector also need to be sustained and intensified to capitalize on the growing opportunities in this sector.Slide 6: Steady foreign investment inflow have been instrumental in strengthening the balance of payments in the recent past. Given the potential for higher direct foreign investment in India, a further considered liberalization of the investment inflows, thus supporting the investment needs of the economy for higher growth and providing strength to prudent debt management. New initiatives like refinancing of costly debts, prepayment of identified high cost debt and exploring the possibility of using the financial products for hedging of risk for active management of sovereign debt would be helpful in further improving the sustainability of external debt indicators of the economy. As regards the global trade agenda, India has repeatedly stated its support for WTO and the Doha Development Agenda. However, further progress on the global trade negotiations would depend upon developed countries keeping their promises made in Doha.Problem: 01 New initiatives which would be helpful in improving the sustainability of the external debt indicators is/ are Prepayment of identified high cost debt. Refinancing of costly debts Hedging of risk for active management of sovereign debts through financial products. All of the above ProblemProblem: Problem 02 According to the passage, what provides the opportunity to expedite completion of the trade liberalization agenda? Capital inflow Crude oil Forex reserves Geo-political stabilityProblem: Problem 03 India has been vindicated by its successfully handling in the recent past a series of external shocks — Asian crisis of 1997, crude oil shock 2000, synchronized slowdown of global activity in 2001, because of: Revival of domestic demand. Rising level of forex reserves. Current account surplus High Indian tariffs in its trade regime.Directions (Qs. 4 to 6): : Read the following passage carefully to answer these questions based on what is stated or implied in the passage: Directions (Qs. 4 to 6):Slide 11: The first important point about how children learn prejudice is that they do. They aren't born that way, though some people think prejudice is innate and like to quote the old saying, "You can't change human nature." But you can change it. We know that very small children are free of prejudice. Studies of school children have shown that prejudice is slight or absent among children in the first and second grades. After this, it may fall off again in adolescence. Other studies have shown that, on an average, young adults are much freer of prejudice than older ones. In the early stages of picking up prejudice, children mix it with ignorance which, as I've said, should be distinguished from prejudice. A child, as he begins to study the world around him, tries to organize his experiences. Doing this, he begins to classify things and people and begins to form connections — or what psychologists call associations. He needs to do this because he saves time and effort by putting things and people into categories. But unless he classifies correctly, his categories will mislead rather than guide him. For example, if a child learns that "all fires are hot and dangerous," fires have been put firmly into the category of things to be watched carefully — and thus he can save himself from harm. But if he learns a category like "Negroes are Lazy" or "foreigners are fools," he's learned generalizations that mislead because they're unreliable. The thing is that, when we use categories, we need to remember the exceptions and differences, the individual variations that qualify the usefulness of all generalizations.Slide 12: Some fires, for example, are hotter and more dangerous than others. If people had avoided all fires as dangerous, we would never have had central heating. More importantly, we can ill afford to treat people of any given group as generally alike, even when it's possible to make some accurate generalization about them. So when a child first begins to group things together, it's advisable that he learns differences as well as similarities. For example, basic among the distinctions he draws is the division into "good" and "bad", which he makes largely on the grounds of what his parents do and say about things and the people. Thus, he may learn that dirt is "bad" because his mother washes him every time he gets dirty. By extension, seeing a Negro child, he might point to him and say, "Bad child", for the Negro child's face is brown, hence unwashed and dirty, and so, "bad." We call this prelogical thing, and all of us go through this phase before we learn to think more effectively. But some people remain at this stage and never learn that things seem alike, such as dirt and brown pigment are really quite different. Whether a child graduates from this stage to correct thinking or to prejudicial thinking, depends to a great extent on his experiences with his parents and teachers.Problem: Problem 04 Which one of the following statements is true? Children up to the age of six or seven years are less likely to be prejudiced. One is born with prejudice. As one grows, prejudices fall off. One's prejudices remain forever.Problem: Problem 05 While making categories, the important things to remember are Only differences Only exceptions Exceptions and differences Only similaritiesProblem: Problem 06 Which one of the following statements is not true? It is possible to shed prejudices at any stage Parents can help children to correct thinking. Prejudice and ignorance are not the same. Things that seem alike are necessarily similar.Directions (Qs. 7 to 9): : Read the following passage carefully to answer these questions based on what is stated or implied in the passage, Directions (Qs. 7 to 9):Slide 17: Peace and order are necessary, not just in our own country but also at the international level, if we are to secure national progress and development. The different countries in the world are coming closer today due to faster means of transport and communications. Economically, they are becoming increasingly inter-dependent. If peace is disturbed in one part of the world, it has adverse effects in other parts of the world as well. Nuclear weapons have already threatened the world with nuclear war. If the conflicts between different nations are not settled in time, they might culminate in a nuclear war destroying the whole world. It is therefore in our own interest that the world is free of conflicts. If at all there are, they must be settled promptly and peace should be restored. That is why we have declared the establishment of international peace and understanding as an objective of our foreign policy. We need the help and co-operation of other countries for our scientific, industrial and economic development, especially in those fields where we have yet to achieve self sufficiency. We obtain the latest machinery, technology and financial aid from the developed countries. On our part, we too, offer help to the under-developed countries. We are keen on maintaining friendly relations with other countries. Such friendly relations foster international understanding. We have always exerted ourselves to see that the disputes arising between the different nations are settled through peaceful negotiations. We play an active role in the United Nations, the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation, the Commonwealth of Nations and other such internationalSlide 18: organizations. We make it a point to participate in international conferences on issues like energy crisis, environmental imbalance, nuclear arms race, etc. We always offer a helping hand to other nations affected by natural calamities such as famines, earthquakes, floods and so cm. We strive to maintain peaceful and friendly relations with our neighboring countries. Why do we do all this? We sincerely believe that the conflicts in today's world should be minimized, making way for better cooperation among the nations. If this is achieved, human resources will no longer be wasted in things like war or aggression. There will be no destruction of wealth. We believe that, in a peaceful world, there will he greater scope for the economic and cultural development of countries.Problem: Problem 07 What is the main idea expressed in this passage? Peace is necessary for overall development of our country Threat of nuclear war. Economic inter-dependence of nations. Peace will lead to cultural development of nations.Problem: 08 Problem Which of the following words is most opposite in meaning of the word 'foster' as used in the passage? Facilitate Hinder Advocate ObviateProblem: Problem 09 The question, "why do we do all this?" is asked in the passage in which of the following contexts? We offer a helping hand to other nations in improving their technology. We obtain technology and financial aid from the developed countries. We Endeavour to maintain peaceful and friendly relations with our neighbors. We have shaped our foreign policy in balanced and purposeful manner.Directions (Q. 10 to 12): : Read the following passage carefully to answer these questions based on what is stated or implied in the passage. Directions (Q. 10 to 12):Slide 23: The atmosphere is a mixture of several gases. There are about ten chemical elements, which remain permanently in gaseous form in the atmosphere under all natural conditions. Of these permanent gases, oxygen makes up about 21 percent and nitrogen about 78 percent. Several other gases, such as argon, carbon dioxide, hydrogen, neon, krypton and xenon, comprise the remaining 1 percent of the volume of dry air. The amount of water vapour, and its variations in amount and distribution are of extraordinary importance in whether changes. Atmospheric gases hold in suspension great quantities of dust, pollen, smoke and other impurities which are always present in considerable, but variable amounts. The atmosphere has no definite upper limits but gradually thins until it becomes imperceptible. Until recently it was assumed that the air above the first few miles gradually grew thinner and colder at a constant rate. It was also assumed that upper air had little influence on weather changes. Recent studies of the upper atmosphere, currently being conducted by earth satellites and missile probing, have shown these assumptions to be incorrect. The atmosphere has three well-defined strata. The layer of the air next to the earth, which extends upward for about ten miles, is known as the troposphere. On the whole it makes up about 75 percent of all the weight of the atmosphere. It is the warmest part of the atmosphere because most of the solar radiation is absorbed by the earth's surface, which warms the air immediately surrounding it. A steady decrease of temperature with increasing elevation is the most striking characteristic. The upper layers are colder because of their greater distanceSlide 24: from the earth's surface and rapid radiation of heat into space. The temperature within the troposphere decreases about 3.5 degrees per 1000 feet increase in altitude. Within the troposphere, winds and air currents distribute heat and moisture. Strong winds, called jet streams, are located at the upper layers of the troposphere. These jet streams are both complex and widespread in occurrence. They normally show a wave-shaped pattern and move from west to east at velocities of 150 mph, but velocities as high as 400 mph have been noted. The influences of changing locations and strengths of jet streams upon weather conditions and patterns are no doubt considerable. Current intensive research may eventually reveal their true significance. Above the troposphere to a height about 50 miles is a zone called the stratosphere. The stratosphere is separated from the troposphere by a zone of uniform temperatures called the tropopause. Within the lower portions of the stratosphere is the layer of ozone gases which filters out most of the ultraviolet rays from the sun. The ozone layer varies with air pressure. If this zone where not there, the full blast of sun's ultraviolet light would burn our skins, blind our eyes, and eventually result in our destruction. Within the stratosphere, the temperature and atmospheric compositions are relatively uniform. The layer upward of about 50 miles is the most fascinating but the least known of these three strata. It is called the ionosphere because it consists of electrically-charged particles called ions, thrown from the sun. The northern light (aurora borealis) originates within this highly-charged portion of the atmosphere.Slide 25: Its effect upon weather conditions, if any, is as yet unknown.Problem: Problem 10 According to the passage, life as we know, exists on the earth because the atmosphere contains electrically-charged particles is warmest at the bottom carries ultraviolet rays contains a layer of ozone gas.Problem: Problem 11 The passage supplies information that would answer which of the following questions? How do the troposphere and stratosphere differ? How does ionosphere affect the weather? How do the earth satellites study the atmosphere? (a) only (c)only (a), (b) and (c) and (c) only.Problem: 12 The passage states that troposphere is the warmest part of the atmosphere because it is closest to the sun contains electrically-charged particles is warmed by the earth's heat has winds and air currents that distribute the heat ProblemDirections (Q. 13 ):: Read the following passage carefully to answer these questions based on what is stated or implied in the passage. The phenomena of child labor is quite complex. Children work because they belong to poor families who cannot survive without the benefit of the income, which accrues to the family on account of child labor. Any attempt to abolish it through legal resource would, under the circumstances, not be practical. The only alternative is to ban child lab our in hazardous areas and to regulate and ameliorate the conditions of work in other areas. Many developing countries including India have accepted this approach. Directions (Q. 13 ):Problem: Problem 13 What can be inferred about the policy being followed about child labor in India? Giving economic benefits to the families of child laborers’. Reducing/controlling child labour in unhealthy areas of work. Maintaining and improving working conditions for children.
