Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Ancient India- 4 - Question 1

The correct option is A.
It was in 1916 that Bhoop Singh alias Vijai Singh Pathik arrived in Bijolia and organized the peasants under the Bijoliya Kisan Panchayat to oppose payments to the war fund and other taxes. Petitions were sent to the Maharana, and stories of the agitation started receiving publicity in various newspapers.

Practice Test: Ancient India- 4 - Question 3

Consider the following observations related to Indus Valley Civilization:
1. Cattle were the main domestic animals of the Indus farmers
2. Most common among reared cattle was the ‘unicorn’ or one horned bovid
Which among the above statements is / are correct?

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Ancient India- 4 - Question 3

The second statement is a trap. The unicorn is the most common animal on seals but it is mythical beast not real. The unicorn frequently shown on seals is also often identified as a bovid, perhaps the humpless bull whose representation with a single horn may be due to an artistic convention (which was common in the Near East) for depicting bovids that actually had two horns. Alternatively, it may be intended as a mythical, probably composite, beast. The latter is perhaps more likely because figurines of unicorns have also been found and because the individual features of the unicorn on the seals, such as the very long horn and the pricked ear, do not match any known bovid. Alternatively, it may be a local copy of a foreign (e.g., Near Eastern) depiction of a humpless bull, if this were the case it would provide evidence that the humpless bull was not present in the Indus civilization.

Practice Test: Ancient India- 4 - Question 21

The Karachi session of the Indian National Congress passed a resolution    

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Ancient India- 4 - Question 21

The Karachi session was presided over by Sardar Patel. The congress adopted a resolution on Fundamental Rights and Economic Policy which represented the Party’s Social, Economic and Political programme. It was later known as Karachi Resolution. Nehru had originally drafted it, but some Congress leaders thought it was too radical and it was redrafted. We have been told that MN Roy also played a role in drafting this resolution, but Nehru himself later said that MN Roy had nothing to do with it. In any case, the redrafted resolution made the Karachi Session memorable, because for the first time, the resolution tried to define what would be the meaning of Swaraj for common people.
