John got a swelled head after he won the prize and this annoyed everyone.

A. Get a headache

C. To be conceited, arrogant, or self-aggrandizing

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 10 (New Pattern) - Question 1 The phrase "annoyed everyone" suggests that whatever behavioural changes occurred in John after winning the prize were not positive ones. The phrase 'swelled head' means to be conceited i.e. develop undue pride in oneself.

Hence, the correct option is (C).

DU LLB Mock Test - 10 (New Pattern) - Question 2

Direction: A sentence has been given in Active/Passive Voice. Out of the four alternatives suggested, select the one which best expresses the same sentence in Passive/Active voice.

The driver parked the car safely.

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 10 (New Pattern) - Question 2 The given sentence is in the Active voice form, thus we need to convert it into Passive voice form.

In the given sentence the subject is 'The driver' and the object is 'the car' so for making the passive form of this sentence we need to exchange their places of object and subject.

We need to follow these instructions while changing the active voice into passive voice.

The preposition 'by' will commence the sentence.

The objective case 'the car' will use as a subject and it will take a singular verb.

The subjective case 'the driver' will use as an object.

If in the given question which is in a form of 'past indefinite' we follow this structure.

Active form: Sub + V2 + obj

Passive form: obj + was/were + V3 + by + sub

let's see the example:

Active: Reema cleaned the floor.

Passive: The floor was cleaned by Reema.

So following these steps we finally get.

Hence, the correct option is (B).

DU LLB Mock Test - 10 (New Pattern) - Question 11

Direction: Read the following passage and answer the following question:

In terms of labour, for decades the relatively low cost and high quality of Japanese workers conferred considerable competitive advantage across numerous durable goods and consumer electronics industries (eg. Machinery, automobiles, televisions, radios). Then labour-based advantages shifted to South Korea, then to Malaysia, Mexico and other nations. Today, China appears to be capitalizing best on the basis of labour. Japanese firms still remain competitive in markets for such durable goods, electronics and other products, but the labour force is no longer sufficient for competitive advantage over manufacturers in other industrializing nations. Such shifting of labour-based advantage is clearly not limited to manufacturing industries. Today, a huge number of IT and service jobs are moving from Europe and North America to India, Singapore, and like countries with relatively well-educated, low-cost workforces possessing technical skills. However, as educational levels and technical skills continue to rise in other countries, India, Singapore, and like nations enjoying labour-based competitive advantage today are likely to find such advantage cannot be sustained through the emergence of new competitors.

In terms of capital, for centuries the days of gold coins and later even paper money restricted financial flows. Subsequently, regional concentrations were formed where large banks, industries and markets coalesced. But today capital flows internationally at rapid speed. Globa commerce no longer requires regional interactions among business players. Regional capital concentrations in places such as New York, London and Tokyo still persist, of course, but the capital concentrated there is no longer sufficient for competitive advantage over other capitalists distributed worldwide. Only if an organization is able to combine, integrate and apply its resources (eg. Land, labour, capital, IT in an effective manner that is not readily imitable by competitors can such an organization enjoy competitive advantage sustainable overtime.

In a knowledge-based theory of the firm, this idea is extended to view organizational knowledge as a resource with at least the same level of power and importance as the traditional economic inputs. An organization with superior knowledge can achieve a competitive advantage in markets that appreciate the application of such knowledge. Semiconductors, genetic engineering, pharmaceuticals, software, military warfare, and like knowledge-intensive competitive arenas provide both time-proven and current examples. Consider semiconductors (e.g. computer chips), which are made principally of sand and common metals. These ubiquitous and powerful electronic devices are designed within common office buildings, using commercially available tools, and fabricated within factories in many industrialized nations. Hence, the land is not the key competitive resource in the semiconductor industry.

Q. Which country enjoyed competitive advantages in automobile industry for decades?
