Study the caselet below to answer these questions. Mr. Keshri , the CEO of Keshri Food Inc. is facing a vital business decision. His company has two exciting new inventions of mango varieties. The company has the option to go in for further development of either of these two varieties - Alphonso Superior and Langda Inferior. He estimates that the development cost of Alphonso Superior would be $750000, while Langda Inferior would cost $250000. The salaries of scientists would constitute 28% of the cost while the research equipment and development facilities would account for 39%, irrespective of the variety of mango developed. Patenting cost would be $ 30000 each while the rest of the budget would be accounted for by overheads. Mr. Keshri calculates that the country-wise patent license fees for Alphonso Superior would be $7500 per year per territory in a developed country and $2500 per year per territory in an underdeveloped country. The country-wise patent license fees in developed and underdeveloped countries for Langda Inferior would $1250 per year per territory. The latest UN statistics showed that there were 150000 territories in the world which could be classified as developed territories and 250000 territories were underdeveloped territories.

Directions (Questions 62-81)::

Study the passages below to answer the questions that follow each passage A new chapter has been added to the decades long scientific quest for water on the moon. An instrument on the Chandrayaan-1, known as the Moon Mineralogy Mapper , has detected unmistakeable signs of water molecules at many places on the surface of our celestial neighbour . Years before humans set foot on the moon, scientists conjectured that there mightr be water there. But when samples of lunar rock and soil brought back by the Apollo astronauts were analysed , the results dampened such hopes. The moon appeared to be, in the words of one scientific paper, "an exceedingly dry place." The search for water on the moon, however, revived in the 1990s when two U.S. Spacecraft, the Clementine and the Lunar Prospector, found evidence for what was said to be water in the. form of ice in permanently shadowed craters at the poles. But this evidence has been hotly contested. So much so that last year Japanese researchers declared that careful analysis of images taken by the Kaguya /SELENE spacecraft did not tthrow up any sign of ice inside a key crater at the South Pole. But it was also last year that U.S. scientists published a study that used new techniques to examine beads of volcanic glass collected by two Apollo missions. They found minute traces of water. That suggested that water had been a part of the moon since its formation and could be found deep inside it. Directions (Questions 62-81):

Slide 77:

The discovery of traces of water by the Chandrayaan - 1, supported by findings from two U.S. deep space missions that gazed at the moon as they passed by, is of huge scientific interest. Scientists have long speculated that solar wind, carrying charged particles from the sun, could interact with the lunar soil to produce water. Now evidence from Chandrayaan-1 and the other two spacecraft indicates that such a process is likely to be at play on the moon. Water, it would seem, is being constantly generated all over the lunar surface. Much of it may well boil off into space; some of it may percolate deeper down into the soil. Some of the water could end up at the bottom of deep polar craters, which have recently been described as some of the coldest places in the entire solar system. Such water, it is said, will benefit any fuiture efforts to establish a manned outpost on the moon, supplying drinking water and rocket fuel. The day when such a need might arise seems very far off indeed. It is not even clear when humnans might next go the moon, let alone set up bases there. For the present, it is science that profits most from the Chandrayaan -l's discovery of water. Missions of space exploration should not be judged by any immediate returns they produce. The excitement over such voyages is a testament to our desire to better understand the world around us and the universe beyond.

Problem:

Problem 62 Which of the following is not true in the context of the passage? Space missions have meaning only when they produce immediate results Japanese researchers found key evidence to suggest there is no water anywhere on the moon. The moon appears to be an exceedingly dry place according to latest findings. C only B only B & C A, B & C

Problem:

Problem 63 Which of the following statements is/are implied in the passage? Water is being constantly produced on the moon's surface. Establishing a manned outpost on the moon will become a reality soon. Scientists have been looking for signs of water on the moon since very long. A & B A, B & C A & C B only

Problem:

Problem 64 According to the passage clearly, humans are expected to land on the moon shortly Chandrayaan-1 is the first mission to discover traces of water on the lunar surface. globally scientists have had consistent findings in their studies man's quest for knowledge of the universe is reflected in space exploration missions.

Problem:

Problem 65 The title most apt of this passage is Quest for Water on the Moon : A Significant Step Forward Success of Joint Space Missions Chandrayaan-1 : Pride of India None of these

Directions for questions 66 to 70: :

The International Monetary Fund has played a significantly enhanced role in promoting global economic growth and stability. In one of the important decisions taken at the Pittsburgh G-20 summit, the IMF has been given the mandate to assist in a new mechanism for a peer review of every country's economic policy framework and performance. Policies of many countries including India are already being reviewed by the IMF and after the G-20 summit the richer countries' policies will be subject to scrutiny. Of course, much will depend on how the IMF goes about fulfilling the mandate. But the decision at the summit is in itself a big step towards ensuring that the policies pursued by the G-20 countries "are collectively consistent with more sustainable and balanced trajectories for the global economy". In a related development, the IMF itself will be restructured and made more democratic so as to reflect the current global economic order rather than what prevailed in 1945 when it was set up. Its executive board will become more broad- based. The IMF's system of quotas - from which the voting power of individual members is derived - will be realigned in such a way that developing countries including india and China, now having a 43 per cent share, get five per cent more. That, however, falls short of the 50 per cent share the developing countries have been asking for. But the G-20 ought to be complimented for finally moving forward on a long-pending agenda of internal reform of the IMF and the World Bank. The IMF will be able to alter the economic policies of countries that have directly or indirectly contributed to the global economic crisis. At Pitssburgh , there were few concrete suggestions for an Directions for questions 66 to 70:

orderly unwinding of "global imbalances" - the huge current account deficit of the United States matched by the current account surplus of hina . It is not clear whether the IMF will be in a position to influence China's exchanage rate policy (leading to a revaluation of the yuan ) or the U.S.'s inclination to consume. Obviously, continued global cooperation will be necessary even as the world economy climbs out of the recession. The IMF, which has forecast a gradual recovery, has gained in reputation by its generally deft handling of the crisis. For instance, it mobilized resources swiftly and stepped up lending to the countries in need, thereby containing the crisis. Even more significantly all the loans came without the onerous conditions and advice of the kind that showed a disregard for national sensibilities as it happened during the Asian crisis over a decade ago.

Problem:

Problem 66 "...collectively consistent with ... the global economy" means framing of policies by G-20 countries in such a way that the global economy shows sustained and balanced performance. continued growth for G-20 countries must be ensured consistently. ensuring equal economic growth for all the countries. None of these

Problem:

Problem 67 The title most aptly suited to this passage is Handling of global economic crisis - Key role of IMF G-20 countries - Economic bullies or powerhouses G-20 countries - Impact of their policies on global economy Global cooperation key to combating economic crisis

Problem:

Problem 68 Which of the following statements is/are true in the context of this passage? In the past needy countries were given loans under stringent conditions As per IMF the recovery from the present economic crisis will be a slow process G-20 countries' policies are exempt from IMF's scrutiny. C only A, B & C A & B A & C

Problem:

Problem 69 Which of the following had been a key contributing factor to the global economic crisis? Imbalance in the economic policies of certain rich countries IMF's stepped up lending to needy countries that did not have the means to pay back. The huge current account deficit of US China's exchange rate policy leading to a revaluation of the Yuan.

PASSAGE III:

It has been a terrible period for countries in the Asia- Pacific region, with natural calamities of one kind or another bringing death and destruction to their lands. On September 26, 2009 Typhoon Ketsana ploughed through the Philippines before tearing into Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. The storm produced the worst flooding, in decades across the northern Philippines, caused extensive damage in the countries it swept through, and killed several hundred people. Before the Filipinos could catch their breath, Typhoon Parma hurtled through the less populated north-eastern part of their island nation before heading towards Taiwan. On September 29, 2009 a magnitude 8-0 earthquake set off a lethal tsunami that levelled the idyllic Pacific islands of Samoa, American Samoa, and Tonga. The towering walls of water claimed many lives and wiped out whole villages. Less than a day later, a quake of magnitude 7.6 shook southern Sumatra in Indonesia. Some 1,000 people have been killed in the coastal city of Padang and it is feared thousands more lie trapped in the rubble of collapsed buildings. The temblor has torn up roads, making it difficult to reach aid to devastated villages in the interior. Natural diasters are, of course, beyond human control. But human action and inaction can profoundly affect their outcome, exacerbating or mitigating their effects on people. This point was forcefully made in the United Nations 2009 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction. Although Natural calamities strike the wealthier nations too, the risk of death and economic loss from such events is heavily concentrated in developing countries and within these countries, it is the poor who PASSAGE III

disproportionately suffer. As U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki -moon observed: "Pre-emptive risk reduction is the key. Sound response mechanisms after the event, however effective, are never enough." With just such foresight, Japan has been able to build one of the world's most propserous economies on densely populated islands that face the ever-present threat of earthquakes and tsunamis. India too is vulnerable to natural calamities. A report produced by the Central Government a few years ago noted "that about 60 per cent of the country is prone to earquake of various intensities; over 40 million hectares can be flooded; about eight per cent of the land can be hit by cyclones; and 68 per cent of its area is susceptible to drought. Governments in Indian and other developing countries must find practical ways to reduce their vulnerability to a variety of natural hazards that extract such a cruell toll from their people and economies.

Problem:

Problem 70 The aim of the author' of this passage appears to be to record the natural disasters of the recent past in the Asia-Pacific region suggest ways to tackle tsunamis and earthquakes. highlight the ever present risk of natural disasters across the world, and the importance of pre-emptive risk reduction All these

Problem:

Problem 71 As per the passage the UN Secretary-General observes that pre-emptive measures are a must for reducing the risk posed by natural disasters. sufficient aid should be given by prosperous countries like Japan to poorer countries. sound response mechanisms are not required once disaster has struck All these

Solution:

In a bow towards global inclusiveness, the International Olympic Committee voted for Rio de Janeiro to host the 2016 Summer Olympic Games. The decision deserves to be celebrated not just by Brazilians : it marks the end of a long-standing script that, for whatever reason, shut South America out of the list of Games' hosts. That the IOC session in Copenhagen overwhelmingly picked Rio ahead of Chicago and Tokyo, not to speak of Madrid, which lost 32 - 66 in a direct contest in the final round of voting, is significant. The Brazilian triumph is of course of a reflection of the growing economic stature of the world's fifth most populous nation and the 'B' in BRIC (the four-member grouping of fast-growing developing economies). As important is the consideration that the Games might leave an all-round sports legacy for a nation that has an iconic status in football, samba, and the Carnival. Unfortunately, the city of more than six million is also known for its crime and violence, which is why it scored poorly in safety and security when an IOC expert group analyzed the bids of each of the seven original contestant against 11 criteria. As against this, Rio top-scored in government support and public opinion. The Brazilians have expressed the hope that the Games would help curb crime and solve transport, traffic, and accommodation problems in addition to providing employment opportunities over the next seven years. But in tthe final analysis, it was probably the emotional appeal of spreading the Games to South America, coupled with Rio's inspired slogan, "live your passion," that settled the issue.

The proposal of the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) to create an exclusive Olympic television network may also have hastened the exit of Chicago, which was the bookmakers' favourite . The IOC gets the bulk of its revenue, running into billions of dollars, from television rights every four years. The ever- spiralling cost of holding the Olympics has remained a matter of concern for the IOC with Beijing reportedly running up a bill of $60 billion for a Perfect 10 edition of the 29th Olympiad. Not withstanding claims to the contrary, host cities have run up huge deficits in the past, Montreal in 1976 and Athens in2004 being prime examples. Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who along with the great Pele shed tears when IOC President Jacques Rogge made the announcement in Copenhagen, has plenty of hard work ahead of him.

PASSAGE V:

Power utilities in the country face an economic paradox : demand for electricity is running 12 per cent ahead of supply, yet they cannot capitalize on it by extracting higher prices from consumers. An industry association in Karnataka has appealed to the state regulator against a proposed hike in tariff, arguing that there is ample scope for power utilities to cut costs. The argument is not without merit. Utilities can gain immensely by just eliminating pilferage of power and ensuring that they bill and collect money for every unit that they produce and supply. There is a lot of slack, especially at the level of the distribution utilities where unmetered and unbilled supply are chronic problems. The lack of energy accounting in agriculture is a well- known problem. There is no proper record of the number of irrigation pump sets, as a result of which consumption, distribution and transmission losses cannot be correctly estimated. Efforts to extend metering to the distribution transformer level have made little headway. This is despite the fact that Rs. 7, 646 crore has been spent under the Accelerated Power Development Reforms Programme , which was conceived in 2002-03 to address some of these issues. The aggregate technical and commerical losses of state power utilities, basically due to theft or free agricultural supply, are still of the order of 33 per cent, enough to extend significant upward pressure on unit cost. Just halving these losses will obviate the need for utilities to seek periodic tariff increases from the regulators. Regulators should bear these in mind while evaluating the tariff proposals of utilities. They should do their utmost to ensure that the guaranteed 15.5 per cent return on equity to PASSAGE V

Slide 101:

utilities does not necessarily translate into a tariff increase. Their job is not easy given that they have to draw a fine balance between keeping average cost per unit of power down and simultaneously ensuring that the returns are attractive enough to encourage new investment. There is a need to push reforms in the distribution segment; though in theory electricity producers and consumers can now deal directly with each other in the new open access system, in practice they cannot reach out to each other because of steep tariffs and other barriers put up by State utilities that own the transmission and distribution networks. It is time regulators cracked down on such insidious attempts by the state utilities to defeat the open access regime in its infancy.

Problem 81 According to the passage which of the following is true? The utilities can get maximum of 15.5% return on equity State utilities that own the power transmission and distrbution networks are largely to blame for the high price of power.

Problem 146 Honda Motor Co. is not betting on an immediate recovery in traditional markets and will focus on bright spots India and China, although it will not build an ultra low-cost car to take on Tata Motor's Nano . Japan's second-largest automaker was researching a new compact car for Asian markets and more specifically for India, where it launched its first small car, the Jazz hatchback, earlier this year. Honda's Japan operations are expected to stay in red though demand has been brisk, helped by generous tax reductions and incentives on hybrids such as its new Insight model. US sales spikes temporarily in August helped by the crash-for-clunkers programme , but the impact was short-lived and followed by a sharp in demand the following month. India and China seem to be the only two , dependable markets in the world today, given the economic crisis. Brisk demand in sales of Honda cars in Japan and US have been fuelled by generous tax reductions and cash-for-clunkers programme respectively Honda's Japan operations are in the red, but China and India offer it hope for revival of its fortunes through the launch of Jazz. With the continuing slump in economy Honda Motor Co. is still the red and is looking at India and China as bright spots though not for launching an ultra low-cost car.

With Alexandria starting to implement its project, it is possible to develop a complete biotech park in the area. Another proposal from Biocon , a fully integrated healthcare company that delivers innovative biopharmaceutical solutions, is pending clearance from the government. Moreover, an Indian company has tied up with France's Biolice in order to produce cent per cent degradable bioplastic and is looking for land near Ahmedabad . The life science industry is set to get a big boost with the setting up of a sprawling R & D and incubation facility near the Nano plant in Gujarat. Tata Motor's Nano plant nas attracted many MNCs such as Alexandria, Biocon , Biolice to set up shop in Gujarat, especially in the vicinity of Nano .

Problem 148 Researchers have discovered ways to create tastier and healthier ice-creams. University of Missouri- Columbia (UM-C) researchers found the secret is to add fibre , antioxidants and probiotics . 'The idea of putting a functional ingredient into a food instead of just using the nutrients found in the food naturally takes a multi-functional approach', said Ingolf Gruen , professor of food chemistry and ice-cream researchers at the UM-C. 'Food provides calories and comfort - people want to indulge. We're working on making ice­cream satisfying and healthy,' he added. Adding nutrients such as probiotics , which are already found in some diary products, and fibre to ice-cream can improve digestive health. As people want to indulge in eating healthier, tastier ice-cream, it is imperative for researchers to make it satisfying and healthy at the same time, by adopting a multi-functional approach to producing it. Pioneering newer ways to make ice-cream healthier and more digestive is the task of researchers lead by Prof. Ingolf Gruen , at the UM-C. Research has shown that tastier and healthier ice-creams can be produced by the multi­functional approach of adding ingredients such as fibre , antioxidants and probiotics instead of just using the naturally occurring nutrients.

Problem 149 After establishing itself as a major player in the international BPO market, India is now set to shift focus on the domestic market, which is projected to grow at over 30 per cent annually. According to a report by IT research firm IDC India, the country's domestic BPO market, with nearly 500 players, will grow at a CAGR of 33.3 per cent to touch revenue of USD 6.82 billion by 2013, up from USD 1.62 billion in 2008. The report said the domestic BPO industry would evolve from just running isolated processes for customers to engaging more deeply in identifying and transofrming core business processes. " Postitive market indicators of an economicc recovery, unbundling of mega outsourcing deals and large unaddressed white spaces such as regional language serivices support the current optimism," the report said. Riding on the back of positive market indicators of an economic recovery, and by transforming core business processes, India has to replicate its global success phenomenon in the domestic market also. After international success, India is now focusing on the domestic BPO market that has 500 players and is poised for growth @ 33.3% to 6.82. Bn USD by 2013, through transforming core business processes. India has to focus on the domestic BPO market if it has to carry forward its global success story, and grow from 1.62 Bn USD in 2008 to 6.82 Bn USD in 2013. The domestic BPO industry is all set to evolve, ad it would be easy for India to grow here as it did internationally, aided by positive market indicators.
