Direction: Read the following passage carefully and answer the question given below. Certain words/phrases are given in bold to help you locate them while answering the question.

A million people in the UK are planning to give up being self-employed after seeing their earnings ____ (A) ____ by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ahead of official figures on Tuesday that are likely to show a further jump in unemployment, a report from the London School of Economics found that a two-decade-long trend in favor of more people working for themselves was under threat.

The study by the LSE’s Centre for Economic Performance (CEP) found that in August – a month that saw the economy rebounding from the first lockdown – 58% of the UK’s 5 million self-employed had less work than normal. A fifth of the self-employed anticipated quitting altogether, rising to 58% for those under the age of 25.

Stephen Machin, co-author of the report and director of the CEP said: “While the growth in self-employment has been one of the key trends in the labor market in the past two decades, there are now early signals that this trend could be set to reverse.”

“By the summer, there had already been a sharp fall in the number of self-employed workers – this may be primarily due to the lockdown, but for some, it will be due to realizing the risks of self-employment.”

The CEP, which questioned 1,500 self-employed workers, found that 32% of respondents to its survey had fewer than 10 hours of work a week in August.

By contrast, more than a quarter (28%) of self-employed people who find work through digital apps in the gig economy said they had more work than usual in August. But the CEP said its survey found that 78% of these app workers felt their health was at risk while working.

Rishi Sunak has supported the incomes of self-employed workers affected by the pandemic through the self-employment income support scheme (SEISS), which offers grants of 80% of their usual earnings but has been criticized for being badly targeted and failing to help many freelancers and contractors. The Treasury select committee has said more than a million workers have slipped through the support net.

Maria Ventura, co-author of the report and research assistant at CEP, said: “The government support for the self-employed to date, while valuable for those eligible, has not reached all self-employed workers, and the newly self-employed appear to be particularly vulnerable. The extension of support through to April 2021 and the recently announced changes further widen the gap between those eligible and those ineligible for SEISS grants.”

Which of the following is similar in meaning to the below-given word that is shown in the given passage boldly.

Ineligible

Practice Test for SLAT - 2 - Question 37

Direction: Read the following passage carefully and answer the question that follows.

By winning the unanimous endorsement of the 55-nation Asia-Pacific Group at the United Nations Security Council, India has cleared an important hurdle in its quest for a non-permanent seat for 2021-22. The decision of the grouping this week was taken as India was the sole candidate for the post. In the next step, all 193 members of the UN General Assembly will vote for five non-permanent seats in June 2020, when India will need to show the support of at least 129 countries to go through to the UNSC. It will then occupy the seat at the UNSC for a two-year period, as it has previously on seven occasions since 1950-51. There are several reasons why India decided to pursue its candidature for 2021-22. The government at the time had felt it was necessary to have India’s voice at the high table as many times as possible, and therefore began the process for another seat shortly after it had ended its previous tenure in 2011-2012. By rotation, that seat would have reached India only in the 2030s, and India had to reach out to Afghanistan, which had put in its bid already for the 2021-22 slots, to request it to withdraw. Afghanistan did so because of the special relationship between the two countries. India has a unique role to play at the UNSC, given the near-complete polarization among the permanent members (P-5 nations), with the U.S., the U.K. and France on one side, and Russia and China on the other. India’s ability to work with both sides is well known. The year 2022 also has a sentimental value attached to it, as it marks the 75th year of India’s Independence, and a place at the UNSC would no doubt add to the planned celebrations that year. Since 2013, when it first announced the bid, the government has run a quiet but consistent campaign towards this goal.

It is significant that despite the poor state of bilateral relations with Pakistan, and the many challenges India has faced from China at the UN, both the countries graciously agreed to the nomination. From this point on, it is necessary for the government to think beyond the campaign for the UNSC, and work out a comprehensive strategy for what it plans to do with the seat. In the past, India has earned a reputation for ‘fence-sitting’ by abstaining on votes when it was required to take a considered stand on principle, and the seat will be a chance to undo that image. Given the twin challenges of a rising China, and the U.S. receding from its UN responsibilities, India must consider how it will strengthen the multilateral world order amid frequent unilateral moves by both the world powers. An even bigger challenge will be to nudge all five permanent members on the one issue they have unitedly resisted: towards the reform and expansion of the UNSC, which would include India’s claim to a permanent seat at the high table.

Which among the following can be said regarding the role that India played in its last stint at the UNSC?

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for SLAT - 2 - Question 37 Refer to the passage, “In the past, India has earned a reputation for ‘fence-sitting’ by abstaining on votes when it was required to take a considered stand on principle, and the seat will be a chance to undo that image.”

It is clear from the above lines that India did not take important decisions regarding various matters and actually the government refrained from taking decisions when it was required that such decisions were taken without any delay.

Among the given options, we can see that Option (D) is our pick since it correctly explains the role of India in the previous stint with the UNSC and also in most of the other cases in the past. All the other options can be eliminated from consideration due to the fact that they do not follow from the given passage.

Hence, the correct option is (D).

It is clear from the above lines that the author wants the government to take up the challenge to get India a seat in the United Nations Security Council. It should get permanent membership of that council after getting into the non-permanent membership of the organization.

Among the given options, we can see that Option (A) is our pick since it provides us the correct opinion of the author regarding the ultimate goal of India after getting the UNSC non-permanent membership group. Others can be ruled out due to the fact that they do not follow from the given passage.

Practice Test for SLAT - 2 - Question 39

Direction: Read the passage and answer the following question:

The sun today is a yellow dvarf star. It is fueled by thermonuclear reactions near its center that converts hydrogen to helium. The Sun has existed in its present state for about 4 billion and 600 million years and is thousands of times larger than the Earth.

By studying the other stars. astronomers can predict what the rest of the Sun's life will be like. About 5 billion years from now, the core of the Sun will shrink and become hotter. The surface temperature will fall. The higher temperature of the center will increase the rate of thermonuclear reactions. The outer regions of the Sun will expand approximately 35 million miles. about the distance of Mercury, which is the closest planet to the Sun. The Sun will be a red giant star. Temperatures on the Earth will become too hot for life to exist.

Once the Sun has used up the thermonuclear energy as a red giant. it will begin to shrink. After it shrinks to the size of the Earth, it will become a white dwarf star. The Sun may throw off a huge amount of gases in violent eruptions called nova explossions as it changes from a red giant to a white dwarf After billions of years as a white dwarf, the Sun will have used up all its fuel and will have lost its heat. Such a star is called a black dwarf. After the Sun has become a black dwarf. the Earth will be dark and cold. If any atmosphere remains there. it will be frozen into the Earth's surface.
