QUESTION: 1

Directions: Study the following information carefully to answer the question that follow.

President Donald Trump effectively claimed victory over the economic crisis and COVID-19 as well as major progress against racial inequality, heartily embracing a better-than-expected jobs report in hopes of convincing a discouraged nation he deserves another four years in office.

In lengthy White House remarks amid sweeping social unrest, a still-rising virus death toll and Depression-level unemployment, the Republican president focused on what he said was improvement in all areas.

He was quick to seize the positive jobs report at a time when his political standing is at one of the weakest points of his presidency less than five months before the general election. Just 2 in 10 voters believe the country is headed in the right direction, a Monmouth University poll found earlier in the week.

The president also addressed the protests, which have calmed in recent days, that followed the death of George Floyd, the black man who died last week when a white police officer knelt for minutes on his neck.

Claiming improvements everywhere, Trump said, “Hopefully George is looking down right now and saying this is a great thing that’s happening for our country. ... This is a great, great day in terms of equality."

Trump condemned “what happened last week," said no other president has done as much for black Americans, and declared that an economic rebound was “the greatest thing that can happen for race relations."

Putting words in the dead man's mouth drew quick criticism, including from likely presidential foe Joe Biden, who said it was “despicable." The Trump campaign said any reports saying Trump was contending Floyd would be praising the economic news were "wrong, purposefully misrepresented, and maliciously crafted."

QUESTION: 6

Directions: Study the following information carefully to answer the question that follow.

India has long been recognized as an agriculture powerhouse, but has performed much below its potential when it comes to agricultural exports. In spite of being the number one producer of dairy, mango, banana and second largest producer of cereals, fruits and vegetables, India ranks [1] among the countries with highest agricultural exports. Small countries like Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, etc. export much higher value of agricultural goods than us.

The coronavirus outbreak and the lockdown has spurred structural reforms in the agricultural sector. The Cabinet has recently approved amendments to the Essential Commodities Act, especially removal of stock limit on cereals, pulses, oilseeds, onions and potatoes will encourage people to invest in creating infrastructure and storage of the agricultural produce with a fair degree of certainty. The Cabinet also approved barrier free trade of agricultural products, contract farming arrangements with processors, aggregators, etc. The provision of Rs. [2] for agri-infrastructure as part of the Rs. 20 lakh crore package will definitely help the farmers.

However, some people have rightly questioned whether these reforms would be sufficient to alleviate the farm distress and more importantly, would these lead to a greater integration with global market and consequently enhanced agricultural exports?

If India has to ensure efficiency in production and productivity, then a series of reform measures, including higher agricultural exports, will have to be ensured. India’s agricultural exports went up from $17.82 billion in 2009-10 to $ 42.51 billion in 2013-14 and has again gone down to about $33 billion in 2019-20. A strong performance in agricultural exports has a number of positive externalities. Higher agricultural exports would mean better price realization for farmers, increased awareness regarding good agricultural practices and consequently, greater thrust on quality; an increased awareness of what consumers in other countries demand and thus, value addition, packaging, branding, etc.

Q. Who started Green Revolution in the world?

Solution:

The "father" of the Green Revolution is considered to be Norman Borlaug, an American agricultural scientist who in 1970 was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for breeding higher-yielding varieties of wheat at the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center in Mexico.

Hence, option A is correct.
