Test-II: English Language
Directions (Q, 51-65): Read the following passage to answer the given questions based
some of the questions.
India's manufacturing growth fell to its lowest in more than two years in September 2011,
reinforcing fears that an extended period of high policy rates is hurting growth, according to
a closely vatched index.
The HSBC India Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI), based on a survey of over 500
companies, fell to 50.4 from 52.6 in August and 53.6 in July. It was the lowest since March
2009, when the reading was below 50, indicating contraction. September's index also
recorded the biggest one-month fall since November 2008.
The sub-index for new orders, which reflects future output, declined for the sixth successive
month, while export orders fell for a third month on the back of weakness in global
economy.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) last week indicated it was not done yet with monetary
policy tightening as inflation was still high. The bank has already raised rates 12 times since
March 2010 to tame inflation, which is at a 13-month high of 9.78%.
Economists expect the RBI to raise rates one more time but warn that targeted growth will be
hard to achieve if the slump continues. "This (fall in PMI) was driven by weaker orders, with
export orders still contracting due to the weaker global economic conditions," HSBC said in
a press release quoting its chief economist for India & ASEAN.
PMI is considered a fairly good indicator of manufacturing activity the world over, but in the
case of India, the large contribution of the unorganised sector yields a low correlation with
industrial growth.
However, the Index for Industrial Production (IIP) has been showing a weakening tend,
having slipped to a 21- month low of 3.3% in July. The core sector, which consists of eight
infrastructure industries and has a combined weight of 37.9% in the IIP, also grew at only
3.5% in August.
The PMI data is in line with the suffering manufacturing activity in India as per other
estimates. Producers are seeing that demand conditions are softening and the outlook is
uncertain, therefore they are producing less.
Employment in the manufacturing sector declined for the second consecutive month,
indicating it too was under pressure. This could be attributed to lower requirement of staff
and rise in resignations as higher wage requests go unfulfilled, the HSBC statement said.
On the inflation front, input prices rose at an 11-month low rate, but despite signs of
softening, they still remain at historically high levels.
While decelerating slightly, the readings for input and output prices suggest that inflation
pressures remain firmly in place.
Most economists feel the RBI is close to the end of its rate hike cycle. Even the weekly
Wholesale Price Index (WPI) estimates have started showing signs of softening, having
fallen more than one percentage point.

56. Which of the following is the prediction of economists about RBI's rate hike cycle, as per
