Question 1 of 80
1. Question
Direction for the following one item:
Read the following passage and answer the item that follows. Your answer to the item should be based on the passage only.
Higher learning centres in ancient India enjoyed no less academic, administrative and financial autonomy than the most autonomous universities in the world today. Forcing higher educational institutions to follow uniform standardised rules and regulations run counter to what the NEP provides for. Micromanagement of student admission, faculty recruitment, course contents, programme delivery and administration are a surefire recipe to take higher education farther away from excellence.
With reference to the above passage the following assumptions have been made:
I. More the autonomy more the excellence of Universities.
II. The Universities in India today are not fully autonomous.
III. Universities are not autonomous because of NEP.
Which of the above of assumption(s) is/ are valid?
(A) I and II only.
(B) II and III only.
(C) I and III only.
(D) All of the above.

With reference to the above passage the following assumptions have been made:
I. Other teams lost because they were not inclusive like England.
II. Unity in Diversity is mainly needed to win games.

Question 3 of 80
3. Question
Direction for the following one item:
Read the following passage and answer the item that follows. Your answer to the item should be based on the passage only.
The talismanic allrounder and England’s Test captain does give the Mosesvibe, parting seas, ushering in miracles and making fans believe that nothing is improbable on the cricketing turf. Yet, he is equally fragile. “Look he is a champion but he is a human too, there will be anxiety,” Rashid said. There are dual threads running here that are linked to history and the mind. Leap back to the 2016 final at Eden Gardens and you will recall Ian Bishop’s iconic final remark: “Carlos Brathwaite, remember the name!” The West Indian had just clattered four sixes off Stokes in the game’s concluding over. An improbable victory was seized and Stokes sat on his haunches, hid his head within his palms and wept. Cut to a more recent vintage and we now deal with a Stokes, who sought a break due to mental exhaustion. It takes courage to admit that athletes due to ingrained machismo tend to put on an invincible facade. Even Virat Kohli admitted to faking intensity when deep inside he was dealing with the shadows of the mind. Seen through that light, it is remarkable that despite the historical baggage and depression lurking below the surface, Stokes came back for good.
Winning the 2019 World Cup for Eoin Morgan’s men followed by some terrific exploits in Tests and now to make peace with the ghosts of the past is never easy. Stokes did precisely that and as his T20 skipper Jos Buttler said, he is a “bigmatch player.” To open the bowling and then to shepherd the middleorder in a nervous chase can be daunting and the pressure quadruples during a summit clash.
What is the most critical message from the above passage?
(A) Every champion is human too and become anxious.
(B) Stokes was a 'big match player' in recent World Cup.
(C) It takes courage to admit like Virat Kohli that sportsmen put on an invisible facade.
(D) The mind can keep in check past memories from adding to the pressures.

India in November 2022 announced its longterm strategy to transition to a “low emissions” pathway at the United Nations Conference of Parties (COP) ongoing in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt, which is premised on expanding its nuclear power capacity by at least three fold in the next decade, apart from becoming an international hub for producing green hydrogen and increasing the proportion of ethanol in petrol.
With reference to the above passage the following assumptions have been made:
I. With the increase in nuclear power, green hydrogen and ethanol, use of fossil fuels will become history in India.
II. Renewable energy is not part of Indian longterm strategy of low emissions.
Which of the above assumption(s) is / are valid:
(A) I only
(B) II only
(C) Both I and II
(D) Neither I nor II




Correct

Question 16 of 80
16. Question
Direction for the following one item:
Read the following passage and answer the item that follows. Your answer to the item should be based on the passage only.
It is certainly appropriate for India to point to the great and growing global difficulties because of the Russian action. Mr. Jaishankar was correct when he said in Moscow on November 8, after his meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov, and, in his presence that “the global economy is simply too interdependent for a significant conflict anywhere, not to have major consequences elsewhere. We are seeing growing concerns on energy and food security from the conflict that are coming on top of severe stresses created by two years of COVID. The Global South, especially, is feeling the pain acutely.” It would also be correct for India to keep emphasising that the way out is through dialogue and diplomacy. It would, however, be counterproductive to go beyond such exhortations. This is not only because mediation efforts, if undertaken, may fail but also because they would expose the true extent of India’s global influence and the limitations of personal chemistry between leaders in influencing events. Leaders and diplomats, like angels, must always tread lightly.
Which of the following statements best reflects the critical message of the phrase ‘Leaders and diplomats, like angels, must always tread lightly’ in the above passage?
(A) Leaders and diplomats must not add additional stresses to the growing concerns on energy and food security and the severe stresses of past two years of COVID.
(B) Due to high Indian prestige presently in global affairs, Indian diplomats should intervene more and stop the conflict smoothly like angels.
(C) Pushing the envelope too much by leaders and diplomats may backfire.
(D) As the world is too interdependent too much intervention by leaders can lead to conflicts elsewhere and hence should tread lightly.

Beyond a limit diplomacy may fail and also show the weaknesses of India.

Question 24 of 80
24. Question
Direction for the following one item:
Read the following passage and answer the item that follows. Your answer to the item should be based on the passage only.
Regions with the most blocks with critical groundwater levels are in Punjab, Haryana, Delhi and western Uttar Pradesh, where, despite replenishable systems, indiscriminate groundwater withdrawal has depressed the water table. Other endangered blocks are in Rajasthan and Gujarat, where due to an arid climate, groundwater recharge itself is limited, and finally, parts of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, where due to inherent characteristics of crystalline waterstoring aquifers, groundwater availability is low. That much more needs to be done to conserve groundwater is a foregone conclusion. There is no central law governing the use of groundwater and various States have their own laws on regulating its extraction that are deployed in a perfunctory manner. A draft National Water Policy has recommended a shift in usage from waterguzzling crops and prioritising recycled over freshwater for industrial purposes. Water ought not to be considered a free, private resource but one whose costs must be measured and borne equitably. While water remains a politically contentious subject in India, the climate crisis should inspire consensus across the political spectrum on disincentivising wasteful consumption of this precious resource.
Which of the following statements best reflects the critical message of the above passage?
(A) Need of a central law to regulate extraction and replenishment of water is imperative.
(B) Each State based on terrain peculiarities should regulate indiscriminate groundwater withdrawal and take measures to conserve and recharge groundwater.
(C) Preciousness of water and its egalitarian belonging needs to be highlighted by all including leaders of all hues and wastage penalised.
(D) Water usage should not be free but charged.

Question 25 of 80
25. Question
Direction for the following one item:
Read the following passage and answer the item that follows. Your answer to the item should be based on the passage only.
The release of the six remaining convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case marks the end of a tragic episode that began with India’s disastrous involvement in Sri Lanka’s internal strife in the 1980s. The assassination in May 1991, ordered by the LTTE leadership and carried out by a suicide bomber, caused revulsion. However, over time, the prolonged incarceration of the seven persons ultimately found guilty evoked some public sympathy. Political parties in Tamil Nadu campaigned for the release of the four convicts on death row and three serving life terms. The Supreme Court commuted the death sentences to life in 2014. A resolution adopted by the Tamil Nadu Cabinet in 2018 for releasing them under Article 161 of the Constitution was not acted upon by the then Governor for a long time. Ultimately, he forwarded it to the Centre for its opinion. The Court, earlier this year, found no constitutional basis for the Governor’s action and invoked its extraordinary powers to order the release of A.G. Perarivalan. The same benefit has now been extended to others. While their release is no occasion to celebrate, contrary to what sections of the media and the political class seem to believe, it is not one for lamentation either. The plot’s masterminds are dead and only midlevel operatives and some local collaborators were apprehended. A sense that 31 years of imprisonment is punishment enough does indeed prevail.
Which of the following statements best gives the reason for the release of the six remaining convicts?
(A) The convicts were in jail for 31 years which is punishment enough.
(B) Politcal parties in Tamil Nadu campaigned for the release of the convicts.
(C) A resolution was adopted by the Tamil Nadu Cabinet in 2018 for releasing them.
(D) The precedence of release of A.G. Perarivalan using Courts extraordinary powers.

Question 41 of 80
41. Question
Direction for the following one item:
Read the following passage and answer the item that follows. Your answer to the item should be based on the passage only.
Chief Justice of India, Chandrachud sets great store in a judge’s ability to foresee democratic erosion. He says the subversion of constitutional democracy does not happen with sweeping changes but through very small, incremental changes, which if left unguarded open up the danger of eventually and cumulatively affecting the democratic polity. “No case is too small… even if the case deals with the free speech of one individual”. A judge, he said, should read a case not just through the eyes or the mind, but also through intuition and go beyond the legalese to spot the human problem lying hidden somewhere among the pages.
It is this ability to travel beyond the strict confines of law that led to Justice Chandrachud's judgment recognising privacy as a fundamental right and his historic dissent of the Aadhaar policy. While upholding the rights of activists in the Bhima Koregaon case, the Justice said persecution was not the answer to dissent. “Voices in opposition cannot be muzzled”.
The following assumptions have been drawn from the above passage:
I. Every single case needs to be given due importance by Judges.
II. Silencing dissent leads to subversion of constitutional democracy.
III. Judiciary is the bulwark against gradual erosion of democratic norms.
IV. Activists work against elected governments and hence have to be strongly dealt with.
V. Judges should go blindly as per the law and not subjective.
Which of the above assumption(s) is/ are valid:
(A) All of the above
(B) I, II, III and IV only

With the 27th edition of the Conference of Parties (COP) in Sharm El Sheikh nearing its final stages and efforts being ramped up to arrive at a conclusive agreement, a consortium of countries that includes India has jointly stated that carbon border taxes, that could result in market distortion and aggravate the trust deficit amongst parties, must be avoided. The European Union has proposed a policy — called the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism — to tax products such as cement and steel, that are extremely carbon intensive, with effect from 2026.
BASIC, a group constituting Brazil, India, South Africa and China, and therefore large economies that are significantly dependent on coal, has for several years voiced common concerns and reiterated their right to use fossil fuel in the interim during their countries’ eventual transformation to clean energy sources “Unilateral measures and discriminatory practices, such as carbon border taxes, that could result in market distortion and aggravate the trust deficit amongst Parties [signatory countries to the United Nations climate agreements], must be avoided. BASIC countries call for a united solidarity response by developing countries to any unfair shifting of responsibilities from developed to developing countries.”
Their joint statement on Wednesday expressed “grave concern” that developed countries were still not showing leadership or responding with a matching progression of effort. Developed countries had “backtracked on finance and mitigation commitments and pledges” and there was a “significant increase” in the consumption and production of fossil fuels in the past year by developed countries, their statement underlined, even as they continue to press developing countries to move away from the same resources. “Such double standards are incompatible with climate equity and justice.”

Direction for the following one item:
Read the following passage and answer the item that follows. Your answer to the item should be based on the passage only.
Higher learning centres in ancient India enjoyed no less academic, administrative and financial autonomy than the most autonomous universities in the world today. Forcing higher educational institutions to follow uniform standardised rules and regulations run counter to what the NEP provides for. Micromanagement of student admission, faculty recruitment, course contents, programme delivery and administration are a surefire recipe to take higher education farther away from excellence.
With reference to the above passage the following assumptions have been made:
I. More the autonomy more the excellence of Universities.
II. The Universities in India today are not fully autonomous.
III. Universities are not autonomous because of NEP.
Which of the above of assumption(s) is/ are valid?

3. Question
Direction for the following one item:
Read the following passage and answer the item that follows. Your answer to the item should be based on the passage only.
The talismanic allrounder and England’s Test captain does give the Mosesvibe, parting seas, ushering in miracles and making fans believe that nothing is improbable on the cricketing turf. Yet, he is equally fragile. “Look he is a champion but he is a human too, there will be anxiety,” Rashid said. There are dual threads running here that are linked to history and the mind. Leap back to the 2016 final at Eden Gardens and you will recall Ian Bishop’s iconic final remark: “Carlos Brathwaite, remember the name!” The West Indian had just clattered four sixes off Stokes in the game’s concluding over. An improbable victory was seized and Stokes sat on his haunches, hid his head within his palms and wept. Cut to a more recent vintage and we now deal with a Stokes, who sought a break due to mental exhaustion. It takes courage to admit that athletes due to ingrained machismo tend to put on an invincible facade. Even Virat Kohli admitted to faking intensity when deep inside he was dealing with the shadows of the mind. Seen through that light, it is remarkable that despite the historical baggage and depression lurking below the surface, Stokes came back for good.
Winning the 2019 World Cup for Eoin Morgan’s men followed by some terrific exploits in Tests and now to make peace with the ghosts of the past is never easy. Stokes did precisely that and as his T20 skipper Jos Buttler said, he is a “bigmatch player.” To open the bowling and then to shepherd the middleorder in a nervous chase can be daunting and the pressure quadruples during a summit clash.
What is the most critical message from the above passage?
(A) Every champion is human too and become anxious.
(B) Stokes was a 'big match player' in recent World Cup.
(C) It takes courage to admit like Virat Kohli that sportsmen put on an invisible facade.
(D) The mind can keep in check past memories from adding to the pressures.Correct

Read the following passage and answer the item that follows. Your answer to the item should be based on the passage only.
It is certainly appropriate for India to point to the great and growing global difficulties because of the Russian action. Mr. Jaishankar was correct when he said in Moscow on November 8, after his meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov, and, in his presence that “the global economy is simply too interdependent for a significant conflict anywhere, not to have major consequences elsewhere. We are seeing growing concerns on energy and food security from the conflict that are coming on top of severe stresses created by two years of COVID. The Global South, especially, is feeling the pain acutely.” It would also be correct for India to keep emphasising that the way out is through dialogue and diplomacy. It would, however, be counterproductive to go beyond such exhortations. This is not only because mediation efforts, if undertaken, may fail but also because they would expose the true extent of India’s global influence and the limitations of personal chemistry between leaders in influencing events. Leaders and diplomats, like angels, must always tread lightly.
Which of the following statements best reflects the critical message of the phrase ‘Leaders and diplomats, like angels, must always tread lightly’ in the above passage?
(A) Leaders and diplomats must not add additional stresses to the growing concerns on energy and food security and the severe stresses of past two years of COVID.
(B) Due to high Indian prestige presently in global affairs, Indian diplomats should intervene more and stop the conflict smoothly like angels.
(C) Pushing the envelope too much by leaders and diplomats may backfire.
(D) As the world is too interdependent too much intervention by leaders can lead to conflicts elsewhere and hence should tread lightly.Correct

Regions with the most blocks with critical groundwater levels are in Punjab, Haryana, Delhi and western Uttar Pradesh, where, despite replenishable systems, indiscriminate groundwater withdrawal has depressed the water table. Other endangered blocks are in Rajasthan and Gujarat, where due to an arid climate, groundwater recharge itself is limited, and finally, parts of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, where due to inherent characteristics of crystalline waterstoring aquifers, groundwater availability is low. That much more needs to be done to conserve groundwater is a foregone conclusion. There is no central law governing the use of groundwater and various States have their own laws on regulating its extraction that are deployed in a perfunctory manner. A draft National Water Policy has recommended a shift in usage from waterguzzling crops and prioritising recycled over freshwater for industrial purposes. Water ought not to be considered a free, private resource but one whose costs must be measured and borne equitably. While water remains a politically contentious subject in India, the climate crisis should inspire consensus across the political spectrum on disincentivising wasteful consumption of this precious resource.
Which of the following statements best reflects the critical message of the above passage?
(A) Need of a central law to regulate extraction and replenishment of water is imperative.
(B) Each State based on terrain peculiarities should regulate indiscriminate groundwater withdrawal and take measures to conserve and recharge groundwater.
(C) Preciousness of water and its egalitarian belonging needs to be highlighted by all including leaders of all hues and wastage penalised.

The release of the six remaining convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case marks the end of a tragic episode that began with India’s disastrous involvement in Sri Lanka’s internal strife in the 1980s. The assassination in May 1991, ordered by the LTTE leadership and carried out by a suicide bomber, caused revulsion. However, over time, the prolonged incarceration of the seven persons ultimately found guilty evoked some public sympathy. Political parties in Tamil Nadu campaigned for the release of the four convicts on death row and three serving life terms. The Supreme Court commuted the death sentences to life in 2014. A resolution adopted by the Tamil Nadu Cabinet in 2018 for releasing them under Article 161 of the Constitution was not acted upon by the then Governor for a long time. Ultimately, he forwarded it to the Centre for its opinion. The Court, earlier this year, found no constitutional basis for the Governor’s action and invoked its extraordinary powers to order the release of A.G. Perarivalan. The same benefit has now been extended to others. While their release is no occasion to celebrate, contrary to what sections of the media and the political class seem to believe, it is not one for lamentation either. The plot’s masterminds are dead and only midlevel operatives and some local collaborators were apprehended. A sense that 31 years of imprisonment is punishment enough does indeed prevail.
Which of the following statements best gives the reason for the release of the six remaining convicts?
(A) The convicts were in jail for 31 years which is punishment enough.
(B) Politcal parties in Tamil Nadu campaigned for the release of the convicts.
(C) A resolution was adopted by the Tamil Nadu Cabinet in 2018 for releasing them.

Chief Justice of India, Chandrachud sets great store in a judge’s ability to foresee democratic erosion. He says the subversion of constitutional democracy does not happen with sweeping changes but through very small, incremental changes, which if left unguarded open up the danger of eventually and cumulatively affecting the democratic polity. “No case is too small… even if the case deals with the free speech of one individual”. A judge, he said, should read a case not just through the eyes or the mind, but also through intuition and go beyond the legalese to spot the human problem lying hidden somewhere among the pages.
It is this ability to travel beyond the strict confines of law that led to Justice Chandrachud's judgment recognising privacy as a fundamental right and his historic dissent of the Aadhaar policy. While upholding the rights of activists in the Bhima Koregaon case, the Justice said persecution was not the answer to dissent. “Voices in opposition cannot be muzzled”.
The following assumptions have been drawn from the above passage:
I. Every single case needs to be given due importance by Judges.
II. Silencing dissent leads to subversion of constitutional democracy.
III. Judiciary is the bulwark against gradual erosion of democratic norms.
IV. Activists work against elected governments and hence have to be strongly dealt with.
V. Judges should go blindly as per the law and not subjective.

(A) All of the above

With the 27th edition of the Conference of Parties (COP) in Sharm El Sheikh nearing its final stages and efforts being ramped up to arrive at a conclusive agreement, a consortium of countries that includes India has jointly stated that carbon border taxes, that could result in market distortion and aggravate the trust deficit amongst parties, must be avoided. The European Union has proposed a policy — called the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism — to tax products such as cement and steel, that are extremely carbon intensive, with effect from 2026.
BASIC, a group constituting Brazil, India, South Africa and China, and therefore large economies that are significantly dependent on coal, has for several years voiced common concerns and reiterated their right to use fossil fuel in the interim during their countries’ eventual transformation to clean energy sources “Unilateral measures and discriminatory practices, such as carbon border taxes, that could result in market distortion and aggravate the trust deficit amongst Parties [signatory countries to the United Nations climate agreements], must be avoided. BASIC countries call for a united solidarity response by developing countries to any unfair shifting of responsibilities from developed to developing countries.”
Their joint statement on Wednesday expressed “grave concern” that developed countries were still not showing leadership or responding with a matching progression of effort. Developed countries had “backtracked on finance and mitigation commitments and pledges” and there was a “significant increase” in the consumption and production of fossil fuels in the past year by developed countries, their statement underlined, even as they continue to press developing countries to move away from the same resources. “Such double standards are incompatible with climate equity and justice.”
Which of the statements below best reflects the central thrust of the above passage ?
(A) Carbon Border Tax is a discriminatory practice according to BASIC.

(A) 9
(B) 11
(C) 13
(D) 15Correct
Incorrect
No. of Lions = x. No. of Crows = y.
Total number of legs = 4x + 2y.
The total number of heads = x + y.
Given, 4x + 2y = 2(x + y) + 22.
Solving for x, we get x = 11.Unattempted

(A) Rs.5000
(B) Rs.4500
(C) Rs.5250
(D) Rs.6450Correct

Let the monthly income of Rishi be Rs. x.
Total expenditure = (55 + 15 + 5)% of x = 75% of x
Now, savings = (100 – 75)% of x = 1250
25% of x = 1250
x/4 = 1250
x = 4*1250
= Rs. 5000Unattempted

79. Question
Sreeja had three books in which Book A had 120 pages. Book B had 10% more pages than Book A and Book C had 10% less pages than Book A. If she tore roughly 5%, 10% and 15% of pages in A, B and C respectively, then approximately what percent of pages did she tear out?
(A) 8%
(B) 9%
(C) 10%
(D) 11%Correct
Incorrect
Given, Total No. of pages in book A = 120
Total No. of pages in book B
= 10% of 120 + 120
= 12 + 120
= 132
Total No. of pages in book C
= 120 – 10% of 120
= 120 – 12
= 108
No. of pages torn from book A = 5% of Total No. of pages in book A = (5/100) * 120 = 6
No. of pages torn from book B = 10% of 132 = 13.2
No. of pages torn from book C = 15% of 108 = 16.2
Total No. of pages torn out from books A, B, and C = 6 + 13.2 + 16.2 = 35.4
Now, Total No. of pages in books A,B, and C earlier = 120 + 132 + 108 = 360
Required Percentage
= (Total No. of pages torn out/Total No. of pages in books A, B and C earlier) * 100
= (35.4/360) * 100
