  •   Q: 15 The villager has usually been very conventional in his thoughts and approach. He is unenthusiastic to modify his customary way of belief and doing things. His approach in many compliments is homemade is most excellent. For example more farm animals farmers in villages favor to nourish their cows and buffaloes with a habitat mix concession of home oil cakes like pulses, mustard or cottonseeds, jiggery, salt etc. It takes a lot of time, which is hard to believe, every day trial and research to persuade the countryside cattle farmer that mix feeds, systematically formulated, develop the production of milk, without any incremental price. The age old principles and approach towards social group, belief, women, time and funds take time to alter. The villager has conventionally been a supporter in the values of karma or destiny. He has found it more suitable to charge his financial hardship, underprivileged living condition and straitened community position on bhagya (Karma or Destiny). The safety that the villagers find in the position quo, act as a deterrent to alter and test in the short run. Many of this old-fashioned approach, price system and out looks are altering, due to advance level of alertness and teaching. On the other hand the rate of alter is lethargic. Attitudes that have fossilized over the centuries, do take time to modify. Question: When will you call a person conservative in his attitude and approach?  [English Comprehension]
         aWhen he solves his problem through tried out methods
         bWhen he sticks to old ways of thinking and doing
         cWhen he imputes motives to change agents

  •   Q: 16 When using a metal file, always remember to bear down on the forward stroke only. On the return stroke, lift the file clear of the surface to avoid dulling the instruments teeth. Only when working on very soft metals is it advisable to drag the files teeth slightly on the return stroke. This helps clear out metal pieces from between the teeth. It is best to bear down just hard enough to keep the file cutting at all times. Too little pressure uses only the tips of the teeth, while too much pressure can chip the teeth. Move the file in straight lines across the surface. Use a vise to grip the work so that your hands are free to hold the file. Protect your hands by equipping the file with a handle. Buy a wooden handle and install it by inserting the pointed end of the file into the handle hole. Question: These directions show you how to... A. Work with a hammer. B. Use a file. C. Polish a file. D. Oil a vise. E. Repair shop tools.  [English Comprehension]

  •   Q: 17 Visual recognition involves storing and retrieving memories. Neural activity, triggered by the eye, forms an image in the brains memory system that constitutes an internal representation of the viewed object. When an object is encountered again, it is matched with its internal representation and thereby recognized. Controversy surrounds the question of whether recognition is a parallel, one-step process or a serial, step-by-step one. Psychologists of the Gestalt school maintain that object are recognized as wholes in a parallel procedure : , the internal representation is matched with the retinal image in a single operation. Other psychologists have proposed that internal representation features are matched serially with an objects features. Although some experiments show that, as an object become familiar, its internal representation becomes more familiar, its internal representation becomes more holistic and the recognition process correspondingly more parallel, the weight of evidence seems to support the serial hypothesis, at least for objects that are not notably simple and familiar. Question: In terms of its tone and form, the passage can best be characterized as A. A biased exposition B. A speculative study C. A dispassionate presentation D. An indignant denial E. A dogmatic explanation. [English Comprehension]

  •   Q: 19 There is a quite common sentiment that the use of nuclear arms is obviously different to morality and that its making probably so, does not go far sufficient. These activities are not only conflicting to ethics but also to law and if the lawful objection can be added to the ethical, the argument beside the use and the produce of these weapons will significantly be unbreakable. Now the time is ripe to estimate the duty of scientist who intentionally uses their proficiency for the creation of such weapons which has deterious result on mankind. To this should be added to the fact that more than 50% of the trained scientific manpower on the earth is now busy in the armaments business. Now it is suitable that manufacture of arms of death in a world of scarcity is a question that must lay a hand on the scientific conscience. A gathering of biologists on the Long term wide-reaching Biological cost of Nuclear War added scary dimensions to those biological affects consequential from weather changes may at least be as severe as the direct ones. Sub cold temperature , low light levels and high dose of ionizing and ultra violet rays expanding for many months after a huge scale nuclear nation , at least in the northern hemisphere. Efficiency in usual and agricultural eco systems could be ruthlessly constrained for a year or more. Post war survivors would face malnourishment as well as chilly condition in the dark and be bare to near lethal dose of rays. If, as now seems possible, the southern hemisphere were exaggerated also, worldwide disruption of the bio sphere could result. In any event there could be stern consequences, even in the areas not exaggerated directly, because of the inter trust of the world financial system. In either case the extermination of a large fraction of the earth’s animals, plants and microorganisms seems probable. The inhabitant’s size of Hemo sapiens possibly could be condensed to pre historic levels or below and annihilation of the human genus itself cannot be debarred. Question: The author of the passage seems to be of the view that [English Comprehension]
         aUtilization of valuable knowledge for manufacture of lethal weapons is inhuman
         bUtilization of scientific skills in manufacture of weapons is appropriate
         cManufacture of weapons of death would help eradication of poverty
         dSpending money on manufacture of weapons may be justified subject to availability of funds
         eThe evaluation of the scientist expertise show their incompetence
  •   Q: 20 Visual recognition involves storing and retrieving memories. Neural activity, triggered by the eye, forms an image in the brains memory system that constitutes an internal representation of the viewed object. When an object is encountered again, it is matched with its internal representation and thereby recognized. Controversy surrounds the question of whether recognition is a parallel, one-step process or a serial, step-by-step one.

Question: The author is primarily concerned with A. Explaining how the brain receives images B. Synthesizing hypotheses of visual recognition C. Examining the evidence supporting the serial recognition hypothesis D. Discussing visual recognition and some hypotheses proposed to explain it. E. Reporting on recent experiments dealing with memory systems and their relationship to neural activity. [English Comprehension]

  •   Q: 21 Unemployment is an important index of economic slack and lost output, but it is much more than that. For the unemployed person, it is often a damaging affront to human dignity and sometimes a catastrophic blow to family life. Nor is this cost distributed in proportion to ability to bear it. It falls most heavily on the young, the semiskilled and unskilled, the black person, the older worker, and underemployed person in a low income rural area who is denied the option of securing more rewarding urban employment…. The concentrated incidence of unemployment among specific groups in the population means far greater costs to society that can be measured simply in hours of involuntary idleness or dollars of income lost. The extra costs include disruption of the careers of young people, increased juvenile delinquency, and perpetuation of conditions which breed racial discrimination in employment and otherwise deny equality of opportunity. There is another and more subtle cost. The social and economic strains of prolonged underutilization create strong pressures for cost-increasing solutions…. On the side of labor, prolonged high unemployment leads to “share-the-work” pressures for shorter hours, intensifies resistance to technological change and to rationalization of work rules. On the side of business, the weakness of markets leads to attempts to raise prices to cover high average overhead casts and to pressures for protection against foreign and domestic competition. Q. The cost to society of unemployment can be measured by all except [English Comprehension]
