IIT Chennai Humanities & Social Sciences Entrance Examination Question Paper

Read the following passage and answer questions 1 to 4.
Human civilizations have been around for a paltry 12,000 years—barely a few seconds on the geological clock. In that short amount of time, we have managed to create quite a ruckus, etching our dominance over Nature with our villages, towns, cities, and megacities. The rapid increase of human population has left us battling with other species for limited resources, and the unmitigated burning of fossil fuels has now created a blanket of carbon dioxide around the world, which is slowly but surely increasing the average global temperature.
Climate change is one of the most hotly contested environmental debates of our time. Will the West Antarctic ice sheet melt entirely? Will the Gulf Stream Ocean current be disrupted? Will it be the end of the world as we know it? May be. May be not. Either way Antarctica is a crucial element in this debate – not just because it’s the only place in the world, which has never sustained a human population and therefore remains relatively ‘pristine’ in this respect; but more importantly, because it holds in its icecores half-million-year-old carbon records trapped in its layers of ice. If we want to study and examine the Earth’s past, present and future, Antarctica is the place to go.
Antarctica, because of her simple ecosystem and lack of biodiversity, is the perfect place to study how little changes in the environment can have big repercussions. Take the microscopic phytoplankton – those grasses of the sea that nourish and sustain the entire Southern Ocean’s food chain. These singlecelled plants use the sun’s energy to assimilate carbon and synthesize organic compounds in that wondrous and most important of processes called photosynthesis. Scientists warn that a further depletion in the ozone layer will affect the activities of phytoplankton, which in turn will affect the lives of all the marine animals and birds of the region, and the global carbon cycle. In the parable of the phytoplankton, there is a great metaphor for existence: take care of the small things and the big things will fall into place.

1. Antarctica is an ideal place to study the effects of environmental changes because
A. there is plenty of phytoplankton – an important element in the marine food chain.
B. it has a simple ecosystem.
C. there is no phytoplankton.
D. there are not many people around.

2. Further depletion in the ozone layer will affect
A. only animals.
B. only marine animals.
C. first the sea animals and then the carbon cycle.
D. only marine animals and birds.

3. Which one of the following is NOT a human or human induced phenomenon?
A. the growth of cities and megacities
B. the battle among species for limited resources
C. Antarctica being a ‘pristine’ habitat
D. changes in the activities of the phytoplankton due to ozone depletion

4. With reference to the text above which of the following statements is NOT true?
A. Climate change may damage the Antarctic ice sheet and the Gulf Stream.
B. The author is critical of human civilizations.
C. The story of the phytoplankton has real significance for human existence.
D. Climate change is an indisputable fact of human existence.
