NABARD Grade A Phase I Test 4 - Question 21

Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words/ Phrases have underline to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.

The  hesitation shown by the Central government  in deciding upon full legal protection for one of its most prized natural assets, the Western Ghats in their totality, is a major disappointment. The idea that whatever is left of these fragile mountainous forests should be protected from unsustainable exploitation in the interests of present and future generations, while presenting sustainable ways of living to the communities that inhabit these landscapes, is being lost sight of. Quite unscientifically, the issue is being framed as one of development-versus-conservation. Given the weak effort at forging a consensus, there is little purpose in the Centre returning to the drawing board with another draft notification to identify ecologically sensitive areas. What it needs is a framework under which scientific evidence and public concerns are debated democratically and the baseline for ESAs arrived at. It is accepted, for instance, that the Ghats play an irreplaceable role in mediating the monsoon over the country and the forests harbor a rich biodiversity that has not even been fully studied. New species continue to emerge each year in an area that has endemic plants and animals, although, as the scientist Norman Myers wrote nearly two decades ago, only 6.8% of primary vegetation out of the original 182,500 sq km remains in the Western Ghats and Sri Lanka taken together. The ecologically sensitive nature of the forests stretching 1,600 km along the western coast as a global biodiversity hotspot was emphasized by the Western Ghats Ecology Expert Panel headed by MadhavGadgil, while for conservation purposes, the Kasturirangan Committee identified only a third of the total area. Both expert groups have encountered resistance from State governments and industries, although they mutually differ in their recommendations.

The question that needs speedy resolution is how much of the Western Ghats can be demarcated as ecologically sensitive, going beyond the system of national parks and sanctuaries that already exist. As a corollary, are other areas free to be exploited for industrial activity, including mining and deforestation, with no environmental consequences? A frequently cited example of destruction is the loss of ecology in Goa due to rampant, illegal mining. More complicated is the assessment of ecosystem services delivered by the forests, lakes, rivers and their biodiversity to communities. Mr. Gadgil, for instance, has underscored the unique value of some locations, such as those with fish or medicinal plant diversity peculiar to a small area, which should not get lost in the assessment process. All this points to the need for wider and more open consultation with people at all levels, imbuing the process with scientific insights. The sooner this is done the better. Several options to spare sensitive areas will emerge, such as community-led ecological tourism and agro-ecological farming. A national consultative process is urgently called for.

The question that needs speedy resolution is how much of the Western Ghats can be demarcated as ecologically sensitive, going beyond the system of national parks and sanctuaries that already exist. As a corollary, are other areas free to be exploited for industrial activity, including mining and deforestation, with no environmental consequences? A frequently cited example of destruction is the loss of ecology in Goa due to rampant, illegal mining. More complicated is the assessment of ecosystem services delivered by the forests, lakes, rivers and their biodiversity to communities. Mr. Gadgil, for instance, has underscored the unique value of some locations, such as those with fish or medicinal plant diversity peculiar to a small area, which should not get lost in the assessment process. All this points to the need for wider and more open consultation with people at all levels, imbuing the process with scientific insights. The sooner this is done the better. Several options to spare sensitive areas will emerge, such as community-led ecological tourism and agro-ecological farming. A national consultative process is urgently called for.

Q. Statement: As per Norman Myers, not more than 6.8% of primary vegetation out of the original 182,500 sq km remains in the Western Ghats and Sri Lanka taken together as of now.

NABARD Grade A Phase I Test 4 - Question 24

The  hesitation shown by the Central government  in deciding upon full legal protection for one of its most prized natural assets, the Western Ghats in their totality, is a major disappointment. The idea that whatever is left of these fragile mountainous forests should be protected from unsustainable exploitation in the interests of present and future generations, while presenting sustainable ways of living to the communities that inhabit these landscapes, is being lost sight of. Quite unscientifically, the issue is being framed as one of development-versus-conservation. Given the weak effort at forging a consensus, there is little purpose in the Centre returning to the drawing board with another draft notification to identify ecologically sensitive areas. What it needs is a framework under which scientific evidence and public concerns are debated democratically and the baseline for ESAs arrived at. It is accepted, for instance, that the Ghats play an irreplaceable role in mediating the monsoon over the country and the forests harbor a rich biodiversity that has not even been fully studied. New species continue to emerge each year in an area that has endemic plants and animals, although, as the scientist Norman Myers wrote nearly two decades ago, only 6.8% of primary vegetation out of the original 182,500 sq km remains in the Western Ghats and Sri Lanka taken together.

Sales of Nike in Jaipur = 15% of 121% of 62000 = 11253
Thus, total new sales in Chandigarh and Jaipur = 18252.8 + 11253 = 29505.8 units 290506units
Previous overall sales in all cities except Chandigarh and Jaipur = 62% of 62000 = 38440

Two trains, whose respective lengths are 120 metres and 180 metres, cross each other in 15 seconds when they are moving in opposite directions and in 50 seconds when they are moving in the same direction. What is the speed of the faster train (in km/hr)?

Detailed Solution for NABARD Grade A Phase I Test 4 - Question 115

Let the speed of faster train be x and speed of slower train be y
According to question, when they are moving in opposite direction
(x + y) = (180 + 120)/15
(x + y) = 300/15
(x + y) = 20 .................(i)
now, when they are moving same direction
(x - y) = (180 + 120)/50
(x - y) = 300/50
(x - y) = 6....................(ii)
from (i) and (ii), we get
x = 13 m/sec and y = 7 m/sec therefore, Speed of faster train (in km/hr) = 13 × (18/5)
= 46.8 km/hr

A person invest some amount in a business into 2 parts. If he invest 1st part at 8% for 3 years and 2nd part invest at 71/2% p.a. for 4 years, total Simple Interest from both instalment is Rs. 2262. If 2/5th of the sum of first investment is equal to 3/7 times of the 2nd investment, find the sum (principal) of each part?

Detailed Solution for NABARD Grade A Phase I Test 4 - Question 117

P₁ × 2/5 = P₂ × 3/7
P1/P2= 15/14
P₁ : P₂ = 15 : 14
Then P₁ = 15 unit and P₂ = 14 units
Sum of Simple Interest of both is 2262
i.e. (150 × 8 ×3)/100 + (140 ×15 ×4)/(2 ×100) = 2262
Now 7.8 unit = 2262
So 1 unit = 2262/7.8 = 290
Therefore, Sum invest in 1st Part = 15 unit = 290 × 15 = Rs. 4350
Sum invest in 2nd part = 290 × 14 = Rs. 4,060

A Consignment of 12 mobile phones contains 4 defectives. The mobile phones are selected at random one by one and examined. The ones examined are not put back. What is the probability that seventh one examined is the last defective?

Detailed Solution for NABARD Grade A Phase I Test 4 - Question 118

let A be the event of getting exactly 3 defectives in the examination of six mobile phones
And B be the event of getting seventh mobile phone is defective.
Then, Required Probability = P(A∩B) = P(A) × P(B/A)
Now, P(A) = 4C3 × 8C3 / 12C6 = (4!/3! × 8!/(5! ×3!))/(12!/(6! ×6!)) = (4 ×56)/924 = 8/33
And P(B/A) = Probability that the seventh examined mobile phones is defective given that there were three defectives in the first six pieces examined = 1/6
Hence, the Required Probability = 8/33 ×1/6 = 4/99
