Growth through acquisitions and alliances has become a critical part of creating value for pharma and biotech manufacturers and their shareholders. However, companies and their investors may risk value destruction if they acquire rights to a drug that suddenly poses unanticipated safety risks for patients. Similarly, safety-related compliance violations committed by an acquired company could significantly impair the ultimate value of the transaction and the reputation of the acquirer. The pace of deal-making between pharma and biotech companies continued to

accelerate in 2006, increasing 17% to about \$ 18 billion. Pharma companies were typically the buyers, and the premiums they paid increased sub­stantially as competition intensified to secure access to novel drugs and biologics. The stakes increase everyday as com­petition pushes up prices and drives deal-making to earlier development stages with greater uncertainty and less time to complete thorough due diligence.

41. Pharmaceutical companies at times may incur

loss after acquisition of biotech companies.

The explosive growth in demand for castor oil abroad is bringing about a silent change in the castorseed economy of Gujarat. The state is well on its way to emerge as a strong manufacturing centre for castor oil relegating to background its current status as a big trading centre. The business prospects for export of castor oil which is converted into value- added derivatives are so good that a number of castorseed crushing units have already come up and others are on the anvil.

Passage

A worrying feature of Indian urbanisation has been its tendency to increase pressure on the inner

cities. The first result of the 2001 census suggest that the density of population. in urban areas is Within manageable limits, with most cities, including greater Mumbai, being will below the 23000 per square kilometre mark set by Kolkata. But within several of the older cities the walled areas have high densities which exert pressure on the out dated amenities in these areas, a pressure that is accentuated by the poor maintenance of housing as well as other assets in the

inner cities. The inner cities were designed for a pattern of urban life far removed from what exists today. The makers of narrow Winding lanes could hardly have anticipated modern transpiration.

66. The rate of

growt h in density of populat ion

in the inner cities has been more than that in Surrounding areas.

67. The density of populati on in the inner city of greater Mumbai is the highest in India.

68. T h e i n c r ea s e i n den si t y of popu l a ti on in urban areas has out grower the increase in amenities.

69. T h e pa ce of In dia n ur ba n i sa ti on i s m uch slower by international standards.

70. At the t ime of pla nning the cities in the pace the use of bigger roads was envisaged by the planners.

All flowers are fruits + No fruit is juice = A +
HINTS & SOLUTIONS
E
= E = No flower is juice. Hence III follows.
6. All books are novels + Some novels are
Some juices are proteins + All proteins are
poems = A + I = No conclusion. Hence
conclusion I does not follow Some novels are
poems +. Some poems are stories = I + I = No
conclusion. Hence II and III do not follow. But
they make a complementary I-E pair. Hence
either II or III follows.
vitamins = I + A= I = Some juices are vitamins.
Hence II follows. No fruit is juice + Some
juices are vitamins = E + I = O* = Some
vitamins are not fruits. Hence conclusion I

E = E = No building is house. Hence
con­clusion I follows. Some towers are pillars

Some pillars are buildings = I + I = No
conclusion. Hence neither II nor III follows.

Some trousers are shirts + All shirts are coats = I + A = I Some trousers are coats. Hence conclusion I follows. Some bags are suits + All suits are trousers = I + A = I = Some bags are trousers. Hence II follows. All suits are trousers + Some trousers are shirts = A + I = No con cl u si on . Hen ce I I I d oe s n ot fol l ow.

Combining (iii) and (iv), we get F < M

Combining (ii) and (v), we get M > J

Hence conclusion I follows. But comparing (i) and (vi), we do not get any relationship between M and R. Hence III does n ot foll ow.

(vi).

 14. D < Q (i); Q = L (ii); L > T (iii); T < 5 H (iv) Combining (i) and (ii), we get D < Q = L or D < L. Hence conclusion I follows. But L and H can’t be compared on the basis of (iii) and (iv). Hence neither II nor III follows. 15.3; M > K (i); M = F (ii); F<_ Q (iii); Q < H (iv) Combining all, we get K < M = F < Q < H… (v) Hence H > K. Which means conclusion I is true. Again, Q > K. Which means II is true. And, Q > M . Which means III is true. 18.

Course of Action I is desirable on humanitarian grounds. II many go a long way in preventing such collapses in the future. 22. Course of Action I may prove to be counter- productive. There is a risk that the increase may be at the cost of quality. Hence it does not follow. II follows because not get­ting a

college of one’s choice is not the end of the road. Students from lesser colleges have also gone on to make a mark in the world.

 23. While the first course of action helps in prevention of diseases, the second helps in cure. 24. Course of Action I does not make sense as any kind of imposition at this level may lead to negative effects. II is likely to help things improve as this would reduce the collegegoers’ obsession with clothes and accessories. 31.
