 One large passage-6marks.
I answer all question from passage in  guess becos i have no time to read whole passage care fully.


1. Two pencils costs 8 cents, then 5 pencils cost how much
Sol: 2 pencils è 8 cents => 1 pencil è 4 cents
Therefore 5 pencils cost = 5 * 4 = 20 cents
2. A work is done by two people in 24 min. one of them can do this work a lonely  in 40 min. how much time required to do the same work for the second person.
Sol: (A+B) can do the work in = 1/24 min.
A alone can do the same work in = 1/40 min.
B alone can do the same work in = (A+B)’s – A’s = 1/24 – 1/40 = 1/60
Therefore, b can do the same work in = 60 min
3.A car is filled with four and half gallons of oil for full round trip. Fuel is taken  1/4 gallon more in going than coming. What is the fuel consumed in coming up?
Sol Before the trip, car is filled with = 4 ½ gallon of oil
Let ‘X’ be the quantity of fuel consumed for the trip in one direction
The fuel consumed while going = X + ¼
The fuel consumed while coming = X
Therefore, the fuel consumed for the trip = (X + ¼) + X = 4 ½
ð 2X + ¼ = 4 ½ => 2X = 4 ½ – ¼ => 2X = 4 ¼ => X= 2. approx
Therefore the fuel consumed while coming = 2 gallon

6. A person was fined for exceeding the speed limit by 10mph. Another person was also fined for exceeding the same speed limit by twice the same. If the second person was traveling at a speed of 35 mph, find the speed limit.
Sol: Let ‘x’ be the speed limit
Person ‘A’ was fined for exceeding the speed limit by = 10mph
Person ‘B’ was fined for exceeding the speed limit by = twice of ‘A’
= 2*10mph=20mph given that the second person was traveling at the speed of 35mph => 35mph – 20mph = 15mph
Therefore the speed limit is =15 mph

Directions for Questions 21-26: Read the passage and answer the questions that follow on the basis of the information provided in the passage.
Amnesty International’s charge that ‘tens of thousands’ of political prisoners, including prisoners of conscience, are languishing in Indian jails and that prisoners are routinely tortured in this country has to be seen in a much wider context than the organisation’s annual report cares to do.  In its overall appraisal of 151 countries, Amnesty has accused 112 of torturing prisoners, 63 of harboring prisoners of conscience, 61 of resorting to political killings and 53 of detaining people without a trial.  Of these apparently overlapping  categories, India seems to have been excluded from the list of the 61 which undertake political killings.  The report has however, pointed out that scores of people in India die of torture in police and military custody and that many also simply disappear.  Clearly, only a thin line separates the 61 charged with political murder from the rest.  Before coming to such conclusions, however, it may also be necessary to classify the various countries according to their political systems. Torture by the security forces and killings at the behest of the government  make no difference to the victims whether they are in a democratic country or a totalitarian one. It is also nobody’s case that a democratic country is less culpable than a dictatorship in the event of human rights violations. But the point perhaps still needs to be made that torture or ‘disappearances’ represent a failure of the system in a democracy in contrast to being an integral part of state policy in a country ruled by an autocrat who is answerable to no one.
India may be guilty of keeping ‘tens of thousands’ behind bars and of the other human rights abuses mentioned by qualitatively different place from a totalitarian country.  It is in this respect that Amnesty has been lass than fair.  It has chosen to ignore the distinctions between the good, the bad and the ugly.  The openness of Indian society will be evident to anyone who spends half an hour in one of its chaotic market-places or visits the law courts or watches a political rally or reads a newspaper or strikes  up a conversation with any person on the roads.  There is no sense of fear in India, as in a dictatorship.  There is also scope for securing relief from the heavy-handed behaviour of the authorities, even if the human rights commission has not yet lived up to expectations.  Unless such points are recognised, Amnesty’s assessment will seem to be a dry recital of statistics which may pillory India simply because of its larger population.  Mercifully, Amnesty nowadays at least notes that the terrorists also indulge in human rights violations and that India has to cope with several insurgencies fomented by a country where the military does not always seem to be under the control of the elected government.  True, there is much that is the way the terrorist challenge is activating the self-correcting mechanism within a democracy and not merely on painting a grim, even biased picture.
21. In the report, India has been excluded from which of the following categories of violating human rights?
    A) Torturing prisoners

    D) India was one of the countries appraised by Amnesty International
    E) The report notes that the terrorists also violate human rights 
    Ans: B

 Nature is like business. Business sense dictates that we guard our capital and live from the interest.  Nature’s capital is the enormous diversity of living things.

In a hungry world, with a population growing by 90 million each year, so much wasted potential in tragic. Medicines from the wild are worth around 40 billion dollars a year. Over 5000 species are known to yield chemical with cancer fighting potential Scientists currently estimate that the total number of species in the world is between 10-30 million with only around 1.4 million identified.
The web of life is torn when mankind exploits natural resources in short-sighted ways. The trade in tropical hardwoods can destroy whole forests to extract just a few commercially attractive specimens.  Bad agricultural practice triaggers 24 billion tonnes of top soil erosion a year losting the equivalent of 9 million tonnes of grain output.  Cutting this kind of unsuitable exploitation and instituting “sustainable utilisation” will help turn the environmental crisis around.

Directions for Questions 21-26: Read the passage and answer the questions that follow on the basis of the information provided in the passage.
Recent advances in science and technology have made it possible for geneticists to to find out abnormalities in the unborn foetus and take remedial action to rectify some defects which would otherwise prove to be fatal to the child. Though genetic engineering is still at its infancy, scientists can now predict with greater accuracy a genetic disorder.  It is not yet in a position to predict when exactly a genetic disorder will set in.  While they have not yet been able to change the genetic order of the gene in germs, they are optimistic and are holding out  that in the near future they might be successful in achieving this feat.  They have, however, acquired the ability in manipulating tissue cells.  However, genetic mis-information can sometimes be damaging for it may adversely affect people psychologically.  Genetic information may lead to a tendency to brand some people as inferiors.  Genetic information can therefore be abused and its application in deciding the sex of the foetus and its subsequent abortion is now hotly debated on ethical lines. But on this issue geneticists cannot be squarely  blamed though this charge has often been levelled at them. It is mainly a societal problem.  At present genetic engineering is a costly process of detecting disorders but scientists hope to reduce the costs when technology becomes more advanced.  This is why much progress in this area has been possible in scientifically advanced and rich countries like the U.S.A, U.K and Japan.  It remains to be seen if in the future this science will lead to the development of a race of supermen or will be able to obliterate  disease from this world.

Section 3: CRITICAL REASONING ( 12 questions , 30 minutes)
Directions 1-12 : Answer the questions given below the passage or statement as true, false or can’t say.
PASSAGE :Glaciers begin to form where snow remains year-round and enough of it accumulates to transform into ice. New layers of snow compress the previous layers and this compression forces the icy snow to re-crystallize, forming grains similar in size and shape to cane sugar. Gradually the grains grow larger and the air pockets between the grains get smaller, meaning that the snow slowly becomes more dense. After about two winters, the snow turns into firn, an intermediate state between snow and ice. Over time the larger ice crystals become more compressed and even denser, this is known as glacial ice. Glacial ice, because of its density and ice crystals, often takes a bluish or even green hue.
Answer questions 1- 5 based on passage .
1. Glaciers cannot form where snow does not remain all year round.
           A. True                B. False                C. Can’t say
         Ans: A
2. Firn is less dense than snow but more dense than ice
          A. True                B. False                C. Can’t say
         Ans: B
3. Glacial ice is always greenish or bluish in color.
         A. True                B. False                C. Can’t say
         Ans: B
4. Snow falls every year in areas where glaciers form.
        A. True                B. False                C. Can’t say
         Ans: C
5. The increase in density is caused by the grains becoming smaller.
          A. True                B. False                C. Can’t say
         Ans: B
PASSAGE :A power of attorney or letter of attorney in common law systems or mandate in civil law systems is an authorization to act on someone else’s behalf in a legal or business matter. The person authorizing the other to act is the “principal” or “grantor”, and the one authorized to act is the “agent” or “attorney-in-fact”. The attorney-in-fact acts “in the principal’s name,” signing the principal’s name to documents and filing suit with the principal’s name as plaintiff, for example.
As one kind of agent, an attorney-in-fact is a fiduciary for the principal, so the law requires an attorney-in-fact to be completely honest with and loyal to the principal in their dealings with each other. If the attorney-in-fact is being paid to act for the principal, the contract is a separate matter from the power of attorney itself, so if that contract is in writing, it is a separate document, kept private between them, whereas the power of attorney is intended to be shown to various other people.
The power of attorney may be oral, such as asking someone else to sign your name on a cheque because your arm is broken, or may be in writing. Many institutions, such as hospitals, banks, and the I.R.S., require a power of attorney to be in writing before they will honor it, and they usually want to keep an original for their records.
Answer questions 6-10 based on passage .
6.The agent grants the principal the power to act on behalf of the grantor.
    A. True                B. False                C. Can’t say
   Ans: B
7.All contracts between the principal and the agent must be made public.
    A. True                B. False                C. Can’t say
   Ans: B
8. The power of attorney may be granted verbally.
    A. True                B. False                C. Can’t say
   Ans: A
9. Only a legal professional can be granted the power of attorney.
    A. True                B. False                C. Can’t say
   Ans: C
10. In civil law systems the power of attorney is referred to as a mandate.
    A. True                B. False                C. Can’t say
   Ans: A
