Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain wordsare
It is difficult to imagine the extraordinary number of controls on Indian industry before1991
Entrepreneurs needed permission to invest and could bepenalized for exceeding production
capacity. Even with the given investment capacity they had, entering certain areas wasprohibited as
these were reserved for the public sector. If they had to import anything, theyrequired licenses. To
get these licenses was tough, they had to persuade a bureaucrat that the item was required but
even so permission was unavailable if somebodywas already producing itin India. The impact of the
'reforms was not instantaneously and permanentlywonderful. In India'scase it began to show after
about a year and-a-half. After 1993, there came three years of rapidindustrial growth of about 8% or
so. But, in the second half of the 90s there was a tapering ofindustrial growth and investment. After
1997 and the East Asian crisis there was global slowdownwhich had an impact on the Indian
industry. But, the last few years there has been a tremendous upturn.With the rise of investment
industrial growth has reached double or close.
However even during the period when industrial growth was not that rapid, there is a lotof
evidence that positive results of the reforms were seen. There were companies that didn't lookat all
internally but instead performed remarkably in the highly competitive global market. Forinstance,
the software sector's performance was outstanding in an almost totally global market.Reliance built
a world-class refinery. Tatas developed an indigenously designed car. The success of the software
sector has created much higher expectations from and much high confidence in what Indian industry
can do. On the Government's side it's a vindication that liberalization of both domestic and external
policies, including the increased inflow of Foreign DirectInvestment, has created an environment in
which industry can do well, has done well and ispreparing to do even better. What they need is not
sops, but good quality infrastructure. For the11th Plan an industrial growth rate of around 12%is
projected. It will havemethods of developinginfrastructure, which will close the deficit. This can be Page 30

done through increased investment inpublic sector for those infrastructure areas, which cannot
attract private investment, and throughefforts to improve private participation in different ways of
public- private participation.
In the early stages of reforms, the liberalization of trade policies and a shift to a market-
determined exchange rate had the effect of removing constraints on agriculture in terms of
depressed prices. The removal of protection on industry helped to produce amore level playing
field,because the earlier system was extremely unfair to agriculture. The lesson to be learnt from
thereforms process is to persevere in reforming the strategic parts of the economy, which will lead
toeven higher growth rate.India has to do better than its current average growth rate of 8%and
ensurethat benefits from this higher growth go beyond industryand urban areas and extend to
agriculture.
Q.176. Which of the following was NOT a restriction on Indian industry prior to 1991?
(A) A private business needed government sanction to invest in any sector
(B) Industrial growth had to bemaintained at a certain percentage fixed by the government.
(C) It was difficult to obtain licenses.
a) All A, B and C
b) Only B

TEST 2 - English Language
Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words/phrases
A new analysis has determined that the threat of global warming can still be greatly diminishedif
nations cut emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases by 70% this century. The analysis was
done by scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).While global temperatures
would rise, the most dangerous potential aspects of climate change, including massivelosses of
Arctic sea ice and permafrost and significantsea-level rise, could be partially avoided.
“This research indicates that we can no longer avoid significant warming during this century,”
said NCAR scientist Warren Washington, the study paper’s lead author. “But, if the world were to
implement this level of emission cuts, we could stabilize the threat of climate change”, he added.
Average global temperatures have warmed by close to 1 degree Celsius since the pre-industrial
era. Much of the warming is due to human-produced emissions of greenhouse gases, predominantly
carbon dioxide. This heat-trapping gas has increased from a pre-industrial level of about 284 parts
per million (ppm) in the atmosphere to more than 380 ppm today. With research showing that additional
warming of about 1 degree C may be the threshold for dangerous climate change, the European
Union has called for dramaticcuts in emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.
To examine the impact of such cuts on the world’s climate, Washington and his colleagues ran a
series of global studies with the NCAR-based Community Climate System Model (CCSM). They
assumed that carbon dioxide levels could be held to 450 ppm at the end of this century. In contrast,
emissions are now on track to reach about 750 ppm by 2100 if unchecked. The team’s results showed
that if carbon dioxide were held to 450 ppm, global temperatures would increase by 0.6 degrees
Celsius above current readings by the end of the century. In contrast, the study showed that temperatures
would rise by almost four times that amount, to 2.2 degrees Celsius above current readings, if emissions
were allowed to continue on their present course. Holding carbon dioxide levels to 45.0 ppm would
have other impacts, according to the climate modeling study.
Sea-level rise due to thermal expansion as water temperatures warmed would be 14 centimeters
(about 5.5 inches) instead of 22 centimeters (8.7 inches). Also, Arctic ice in the summertime would
shrink by about a quarter in volume and stabilize by 2100, as opposedto shrinking at least three-
quarters and continuing to melt, and Arctic warming would be reduced by almost half. Page 9

Q.51. Why has the European Union called for dramatic cuts in carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas emissions
?
a) As global warming is not an issue of concern.
b) As the temperatures may rise almost by an additional one degree and this may lead to severe climate
change.
c) As the NCAR has forced the European Union to announce the cuts.
d) As all the nations have decided to cut emissions of carbon dioxide.
e) None of these
Q.52. What would NOT be one of the impacts of cutting greenhouse gas emissions?
a) Temperatures will stop soaring
b) Ice in the Arctic sea would melt at a slower pace
c) The rise in sea level would be lesser
d) All of the above would be the impact
e) None of these
Q.53. What would be the impact of holding the carbon dioxide level at 450 ppm at the end of this century?
(A) Global temperatures would increase by 0.6 degrees Celsius.
(B) Arctic warming would be reduced by half.
(C) Thermal expansion will stop completely.
a) Only (A)
b) Only (A) and (B)

Here is the exam paper of Clerk post issued by the Andhra Bank.

Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words are printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.

For many years, the continent Africa remained unexplored and unknown. The main reason was the inaccessibility to its interior region due to dense forests, wild -life savage tribals, deserts andbarren solid hills. Many people tried to explore the land could not survive the dangers. David Living- stone is among those brave few who not only explored part of Africa but also lived among the tribals bringing them near to social milieu. While others explored with the idea of expanding their respective empires. Livingstone did so to explore its vast and mysterious hinterland, rivers and lakes. He was primarily a religious man and a medical practitioner who tried to help mankind with it.

Livingstone was born in Scotland and was educated to become a doctor and priest. Hisexploration started at the beginning of the year 1852. He explored an unknown river in Western Luanda. However, he was reduced to a skeleton during four years of traveling. By this time, he had become famous and when he returned to England for convalescing, entire London, along with Queen Victoria turned to welcome him. After a few days, he returned to Africa.
He discovered the origin of the River Nile in 1866. He again suffered many discomforts. He became too sick and could not even walk. He lost contact with rest of the world that grew anxious to know his whereabouts. Ultimately, it was Stanley, the American journalist, who found him after many efforts, but Livingstone had died in a tribal village in 1873. His body was brought to London and buried in West-minister with full honor.
