ENGLISH

Directions for questions 1-10: Read the passage given below and answer the questions given below it.

On January 28, 1893, Americans read in their evening newspapers a bulletin from Honolulu, Hawaii. Two weeks earlier, said the news report, a group of American residents had overthrown a young native queen and formed a provisional government. Marines from the U.S.S. Boston had landed at the request of the American minister in order to protect lives and property. Violence had ended quickly. The rebels were in full control and were said to have enthusiastic support from the populace. Most noteworthy of all, they had announced the intention of asking the United States to annex the islands.

The proposal was not as startling as it might have seemed. Most of the large landowners in the islands were Americans or the children of Americans. So too were the men who grew, refined, and shipped the sugar that was Hawaii's principal export. In addition, many of the kingdom's Protestant clergymen, lawyers, bankers, factory owners and other leading personages were also American citizens. Though numbering only two thousand of the island's total population of around ninety thousand, these Americans had already given Hawaii the appearance of a colony. This influence could be seen as far back as 1854 when they nearly persuaded a native monarch to request annexation by the United States.

Subsequently, the American element helped secure tariff reciprocity from the United States while the island ceded a naval station to the United States. Such measures sparked enough concern by the United States to lead presidents from Tyler on down to periodically warn European powers against meddling in Hawaiian affairs. Thus by 1893, the new proposal might have been characterized as simply a plan to annex a state already Amercanized and virtually a protectorate.

Nonetheless, the proposition came unexpectedly, and neither politicians nor journalists knew quite what to make of it. Editorials and comments from Capitol Hill were at first noncommittal. The molders of public opinion seemed intent on learning what mold the public wanted. San Francisco's leading Republican and Democratic dailies, the Chronicle and Examiner, declared that Hawaii should certainly be accepted as a state. On January 29, the Chronicle reported a poll of local businessmen focused on potential profits. Claus Spreckles, for example, who owned Hawaii's largest sugar plantation, hoped to obtain the two-government to domestic sugar producers. In addition, he anticipated increased freight for his Oceanic Steamship line as well as more plentiful and cheaper raw sugar for his California Sugar Refinery Company. Businessmen elsewhere on the Pacific coast followed their lead. San Diego, for example, was virtually the property of the Spreckles family. Moreover, in Los Angeles, Fresno, and San Jose, the Spreckelses were allied, to some extent, in the battle against the railroad with the merchants, bankers, warehouse owners, real estate dealers, and contractors; and the Chambers of Commerce of Portland and Seattle had long cooperated with that of San Francisco in pressing for national policies advantageous to the West. It was not long before businessmen all along the coast were reported as favouring annexation.

Directions for questions 11-20: Read the passage given below and answer the questions given below it.

Talk to those people who first saw films when they were silent, and they will tell you the experience was magic. The silent film had extraordinary powers to draw members of an audience into the story, and an equally potent capacity to make their imaginations work. It required the audience to become engaged - to supply voices and sound effects. The audience was the final, creative contributor to the process of making a film.

The finest films of the silent era depended on two elements that we can seldom provide today- a large and receptive audience and a well orchestrated score. For the audience, the fusion of picture and live music added up to more than the sum of the respective parts.

The one word that sums up the attitude of the silent filmmakers is enthusiasm, conveyed most strongly before formulas took shape and when there was more room for experimentation. This enthusiastic uncertainty often resulted in such accidental discoveries as new camera or editing techniques. Some films experimented with players; the 1915 film Regeneration, for example, by using real gangsters and streetwalkers, provided startling local colour. Other films, particularly those of Thomas Ince, provided tragic tragic endings as often as films by other companies supplied happy ones.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of silent films survive today in inferior prints that no longer reflect that care the original technicians put into them. The modern versions of silent films may appear jerky and flickery, but the vast picture palaces did not attract four to six thousand people a night by giving them eyestrain. A silent film depends on its visuals, as soon as you degrade those, you lose elements that go far beyond the image on the surface. The acting in silents was often very subtle and very restrained, despite legends to the contrary.

11. Lines 13-15 (“For….parts”.) indicate that

(a)

Music was the most important element of silent films.

(b)

Silent films rely on a combination of music and image in affecting an audience.

(c)

The importance of music in silent film has been over estimated

(d)

Live music compensated for the poor quality of silent film images.

LOGICAL REASONING

111. The recent incident of fire at the AMRI hospital, Kolkata is not unique in our country. The rate of

such negligence has increased by 40 percent from last year. The fault lies entirely in our court system: Our judges' sentences have been so lenient recently, that the management can now do

almost anything without fear of a long prison term.

The argument above would be weakened if it were true that:

a) 75 percent of the other countries have lower rates of negligence than ours.

b) 30 percent of the CBI officials in the country have been laid off in the last year due to budget cuts.

c) Polls suggest that nearly 50% of the population in our country oppose liability for medical negligence.

d) 108 new judges have been hired in the last year to compensate for deaths and retirements.

112. Any serious policy discussion about acceptable levels of risk in connection with explosions is not

well served if the participants fail to use the word “explosion” and use the phrase “energetic disassembly” instead. In fact, the word “explosion” elicits desirable reactions, such as a heightened level of attention, whereas the substitute phrase does not. Therefore, of the two terms, “explosion” is

the one that should be used throughout discussions of this sort.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument above depends?

a) The phrase “energetic disassembly” has not so far been used as a substitute for the word “explosion” in the kind of discussion at issue.

b) In the kind of discussion at issue, the advantages of desirable reactions to the term “explosion” outweigh the drawbacks, if any, arising from undesirable reactions to that term.

c) The phrase “energetic disassembly” is not necessarily out of place in describing a controlled rather than an accidental explosion

d) In any serious policy discussion, what is said by the participants is more important than how it is put into words.

113. The new industrial monitoring program is needed to protect the quality of air for us and for our

children. Industrial smoke is a leading contributor to coughing, choking, and pollution. The state’s long-term interests in the health of its citizens and in this area as a place to live, work, and conduct

business depend on clean air.

Which of the following is an unstated assumption made by the author?

a) Our ancestors did not suffer from air pollution.

b) The Minister believes that Indian companies are looking for business expansion. The state has been interested in the health of its citizens even before this inspection program was proposed.

c) Industrial smoke contributes to pollution.

d) The new inspection program will be effective.

114. Which of the following is the most logical completion of the passage below?

In the year 1976, the introduction of Compact Discs (CDs) completely changed the way we store data. Instead of limiting ourselves to 2.88mb of data storage, one could opt for a gigantic 700mb of data storage. The floppy discs gradually disappeared from the marketplace. Nowadays, the DVDs, superior in storage and convenience has replaced the CDs and will

a) Increase the profits of the data storage industry.

b) Drive the CDs from the second-hand market.

c) Make the manufacture of floppies unnecessary.

d) Encourage the growth of Blu-ray discs.

115. Rock music gives us a negativistic view of the world. It fosters the attitude that simply caters to

our fancy, without caring of its consequences. The total lack of social responsibility conveyed by this kind of music will be definitely be the ruination of a generation of the Indian adolescents.

Which of the statements below, if true, undermines the conclusions in the paragraph above?

a. Rock music has hardly found an audience in our nation.

b. Movies also convey an attitude which lacks social responsibility.

c. Rock music has its origins in a critical stance towards our society.

d. Censorship of an art form inevitably gives greater appeal to the message it presents.

116. A recent article noted that despite the government's warning about imported noodles from

Japan, likely being contaminated due to the nuclear accident, and the its subsequent recall of a limited amount of imported noodles, 80% of grocery store shoppers surveyed said that they did not plan to change their purchasing habits for imported noodles. Nevertheless, roughly two months after the limited recall and one month after this article was published, the country's noodle importers (of Japan) reported that same-store sales to grocery store shoppers fell 75% year-over-year.

Which of the following, if true, best explains the apparent paradox above?

a. The initial survey of shoppers failed to consider the effect of subsequent cuts in the price of imported noodles.

117.

The Apple iPhone has changed the way we all interact with our mobile devices. Before, the

mobile phone was only used to call someone and send text messages. The Apple iPhone allowed users to transform their handset into a pocket PC. The success of the Apple iPhone is caused by the

fact that you can acquire third party programs and online games and now you can discover how to make a game for the iPhone.

(a)

Apple iPhone is better than other phones in the market.

(b)

The user wants to maximize the use of a communication device.

Natural herbs utilized to make colon cleansing products possess laxative components and can help reduce inflammation. Plant based colon cleanse products are available over the counter without a dermatologist's prescription which contain many of the following ingredients.

What is the underlying assumption in this passage?

(a)

Herbal colon cleanse is better than other ways to improve your gastrointestinal system.

(b)

An herbal colon cleanse is better than other means available in the market.

(c)

The user wants to use plant based colon cleanse products.

(d)

The user wants to get a remedy for the given problems which is easily available.

119. Maybe walking and chewing gum at the same time shouldn't be so tough after all. A joint study

carried out by the University of Northumbria and the Cognitive Research Unit in England has found that the act of chewing gum improves short- and long-term memory by as much as 35 percent. Spearmint, cinnamon or bubble-gum flavor -- it doesn't matter. The key to better brain power is the repetitive chewing motion, according to the study, which was presented at the British Psychological Society's annual conference in Blackpool.

Which of the following most seriously weakens the argument?

(a)

The sales of chewing gum have gone down drastically over the last year.

(b)

The percentage of the increase in memory as stated in the study is inaccurate.

(c)

Several terminal diseases have known to occur by chewing gum.

(d)

There are other ways to improve one’s memory.

productivity gains in several major industries. Roach's paradox appeared to be valid because quite a few service industries had negative productivity gains between 1977 and 1984. Some tried to explain this paradox by noting that it was difficult for workers to adjust to computers. Others noted that few computer applications made significant improvements in the amount of work most workers could do. Still additional commentators felt that the paradox was a product of poor statistical measurement. Because this paradox was driven by the negative productivity results for several service industries, one approach was to see if the service productivity figures were accurate. One study, by Joel Popkin and Company for IBM,(1) found that the BLS productivity statistics Roach used for several service sectors had important shortcomings. Most importantly, the BLS productivity data relied on output measures that did not truly reflect the changes in the nature of work in some service industries.

Which of the following is most similar to the above passage?

(a)

The Euro was launched to be a successful currency, but it failed.

(b)

Bata Lindica, despite being a hugely successful car is not a good car because it has a lot of manufacturing defects in it.

(c)

Ronaldinho is not as good as C. Ronaldo because some of his techniques are flawed.

(d)

Porsche is better than Mercedes, although Mercedes sells more than Porsche, because it makes more efficient and therefore faster cars.

Consequently, UOI enacted a statute, SA-2, thereby imposing internet service tax on its resident. M.S. Stuart, a resident of Australia and owner of one such commercial site operating in UOI challenged validity of the statue, SA-2.

Meanwhile, J.N. Salve, a citizen of UOI doing business in England, challenged the validity of the statute SA-1, on the ground that it has extra-territorial operations. Hosala Pradesh (HP), a state within the territory of UOI, enacted a statute (SA-3) for the state, implementing the International Agreement of UOI and SOL. UOI challenged the validity of SA-3 on the ground that HP is not competent to enact such a statue. HP resisted the same stating that it can enact legislations for the state, and it also challenged the competency of UOI for enacting a statue of the state.

SASHA, an UOI based NGO, challenged the validity of the International Agreement on the ground that United Nation has not recognised the existence of SOL as a country, hence no agreement can be made with it. All of them approached you for their respective cases. Decide.

It is relevant to note that Brojonath was taking the chief minister's car for repairs to a friend's garage,since it had broken down earlier in the day. Also, there

was a garage much closer to chief minister's residence which Brojonath knew about. Stray29's mother (who was a Dependant of the deceased) sued the State of Bongopradesh for being vicariously liable for the negligence of its employees.

a. The State is not liable because taking the car for repairs is a sovereign function

b. The State is not liable because Stray29 himself was doing something illegal.

over Stray29. What will be the verdict of the court in this case?
