SECTION I
ENGLISH COMPREHENSION Number of questions: 40

DIRECTIONS for questions 1 to 15: Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions
given below it. Certain words/phrases are printed h bold to help you to locate them while answering some
of the questions.

In India, a certain amount of crop (transgenic) biotechnology is being put to use. Major efforts are being
undertaken to make cotton pest-resistant. Most people would be aware of the spate of suicides by cotton
farmers recently. Let us hope there will be scientific and technological breakthroughs in pest-resistant
transgenic cotton seeds. Till we achieve success in this on a commercial scale we cannot be sure that we
will have enough supplies to plan large-scale operations. No doubt, such researches should be encouraged,
but we should look at other fronts too. It is necessary for research on crop biotechnology in India to be
focussed on our important crops, especially those related to food security.
We have to bear in mind that the application of biotechnology may not have any major impact on food
security in India in the next five years, though crops of industrial value and vegetables may benefit to some
extent. Therefore, we will still need to depend upon conventional agricultural technologies even while we
target biotechnology for future-oriented applications. Internationally, no major breakthrough in
improvement of wheat strains has occurred lately. Hybrid rice is more productive. China had a few major
initial successes in increasing the yield through large-scale use of hybrid rice. India has begun use of hybrid
rice recently and there are plans to increase it. But it may be noted that in recent years there has been no
further improvement in Chinese production of rice. Still, hybrid rice will play an important role in India, as
we are yet to introduce it on a large scale.
There are a number of improvements in agricultural implements, machinery, plastics, water technologies,
agro-chemicals and fertilizers which are possible and are well within the country's reach. There is an urgent
need to conserve water in a number of ways : ranging from water harvesting to drip irrigation. There are a
number of good examples in India of water harvesting though these are in isolated pockets. Israel has made
water conservation a national policy and has achieved remarkable results. India with its size and with
better endowments in water resources can make miracles happen. A major industry can grow around such
agriculture support systems.
There are also technologies which can contribute a great deal to agriculture. We need to use all available
methods because the coming years are not going to be easy on the food front. Let us look at one, space
technology.
Remote sensing or taking electronic pictures of the earth from space is extensively used for assessing
natural resources, land degradation and water resources as well as to predict crop yield and snow melt,
among other things. Some developed countries monitor crop yields of other countries to help their own
exports. India is strong in the area of remote sensing technologies. We have our own high resolution remote
sensing satellites whose pictures are used all over the world commercially. We also have excellent
capabilities in utilizing remotely sensed data for various applications; groundwater targeting, soil salinity
assessment, crop yield estimates, and so on. In addition, space technology can be used very effectively to
assist extension work, disseminate success stories to farmers, educate them on do's and dont's, and to help
them ask questions through talk-back facilities that can be made available through satellite. A number of
experiments conducted by ISRO in this regard in Haryana and Madhya Pradesh have to be taken up by
other states in a major way. Our farmers should and can be given facilities to keep pace with advances in
agricultural technology. Yes, it is a lot of effort. But we have plenty of talent and also the resources.
Providing these facilities in different languages, partly with public support and partly through various
business houses and private bodies, can become a good source of employment generation by itself.

DIRECTIONS for questions 121 to 125: In making decisions about important questions, it is desirable to
be able to distinguish between 'strong' arguments and 'weak' arguments. 'Strong' arguments are those
which are both important and directly related to the question. 'Weak' arguments are those which are of
minor importance and also may not be directly related to the question or may be related to a trivial aspect
of the question.

DIRECTIONS for questions 126 to 132: Below is given a passage followed by several possible inferences
which can be drawn from the facts stated in the passage. You have to examine each inference separately in
the context of the passage and decide upon its degree of truth or falsity.

The system of rice intensification has come as a great boon to farmers who would apply lesser water to the
water-intensive crops and get better yields. Rice yields increase in the range of 7 to 15 tonne per hectare,
depending upon the region. The system is now being practiced in limited areas of a few states in India. It is
likely to gain wider acceptance. The system of rice intensification achieves improvements in yields and
factor productivity by changing some of the plant, soil, water and nutrient management practices. It
promotes greater root growth that is easily verifiable and more soil biological activity. Interestingly the
system of rice intensification does not depend upon purchased externals like chemical fertilizers and
pesticides. Instead, it increases the productivity of the land, labour, water and capital devoted to irrigated
rice production by capitalizing on existing genetic potential by biological process, particularly the soil.

biotechnology in India to be focused on our
important crops, especially those related to food
security.
9. para 2

. We have to bear in mind that the
application of biotechnology may not have any
major impact on food security in India in the next
five years, though crops of industrial value and

option.
50. The series is Fibonacci series in which the next term is
obtained by adding the previous two terms.
As 83 + 71 = 154, so the required number will be 154 + 71 =

102. 41 points can be scored in the following two ways.
Sum of 5, 6 and 12 = 15 + 16 + 12 - 2 (penalty for two
consecutive throws in the same bonus categories ) = 41.
And sum of 4, 7 and 12 = 14 +17 +12 2 = 41
In anyone of the throws sum cannot be 3.
103. Minimum possible score is 13 + 13 + 14 2 2 = 36.
Penalty for 2 consecutive sums of 8 and penalty for 2
consecutive sums in the same bonus category sums of

international market, the government has decided to
reduce the excise duty by five percent. Hence (B) is the
cause and (A) is its effect.
108. Both (A) and (B) are effects of common cause i.e.
spread of an epidemic.
