Solution:
QUESTION: 11

The great fear in Asia a short while ago was that the region would suffer through the wealth destruction already taking place in the U.S. as a result of the financial crisis. Stock markets tumbled as exports plunged and economic growth deteriorated. Lofty property prices in China and elsewhere looked set to bust as credit tightened and buyers evaporated. But with surprising speed, fear in Asia swung back to greed as the region shows signs of recovery and property and stock prices are soaring in many parts of Asia.
Why should the sharp Asian turnaround be greeted with scepticism? Higher asset prices mean households feel wealthier and better able to spend, which could further fuel the region's nascent rebound. But just as easily, Asia could soon find itself saddled with overheated markets similar to the U.S. housing market. In short the world has not changed, it has just moved places.
The incipient bubble is being created by government policy. In response to the global credit crunch of 2008, policy makers in Asia slashed interest rates and flooded financial sectors with cash in frantic attempts to keep loans flowing and economies growing. These steps were logical for central bankers striving to reverse a deepening economic crisis. But there's evidence that there is too much easy money around. It's winding up in stocks and real estate, pushing prices up too far and too fast for the underlying economic fundamentals.
Much of the concern is focused on China, where government stimulus efforts have been large and effective. Money in China has been especially easy to find. Aggregate new bank lending surged 201% in the first half of 2009 from the same period a year earlier, to nearly \$ 1.1 trillion.
Exuberance over a quick recovery-which was given a boost by China's surprisingly strong 7.9% GDP growth in the second quarter-has buoyed investor sentiment not just for stocks but also for real estate.
Former U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan argued that bubbles could only be recognised in hindsight. But investors-who have been well schooled in the dangers of bubbles over the past decade are increasingly wary that price have risen too far, and that the slightest bit of negative economic news could knock markets for a loop. These fears are compounded by the possibility that Asia's central bankers will being taking steps to shut off the money. Rumours that Beijing was on the verge of tightening credit led to Shanghai stocks plunging 5%. Yet many economists believe that, "there is close to a zero possibility that the Chinese government will do anything this year that constitutes tightening." And without a major shift in thinking the easy money conditions will stay in place. In a global economy that has produced more dramatic ups and downs than anyone thought possible over the past two years. Asia may be heading for another disheartening plunge.

Q. To which of the following has the author attributed the 2008 Asian financial crisis?
(I) Reluctance of Asian governments to taper off the economic stimulus
(II) Greed of Asian investors causing them to trade stocks of American companies at high prices
(III Inflated real estate prices in Asian countries

Q. Which of the following can be inferred from the passage?
(I) All Asian economies are recovering at the same pace
(II) Experts are apprehensive about the state of Asian economies reforms as Asian ones

Solution:
QUESTION: 20

The great fear in Asia a short while ago was that the region would suffer through the wealth destruction already taking place in the U.S. as a result of the financial crisis. Stock markets tumbled as exports plunged and economic growth deteriorated. Lofty property prices in China and elsewhere looked set to bust as credit tightened and buyers evaporated. But with surprising speed, fear in Asia swung back to greed as the region shows signs of recovery and property and stock prices are soaring in many parts of Asia.
Why should the sharp Asian turnaround be greeted with scepticism? Higher asset prices mean households feel wealthier and better able to spend, which could further fuel the region's nascent rebound. But just as easily, Asia could soon find itself saddled with overheated markets similar to the U.S. housing market. In short the world has not changed, it has just moved places.
The incipient bubble is being created by government policy. In response to the global credit crunch of 2008, policy makers in Asia slashed interest rates and flooded financial sectors with cash in frantic attempts to keep loans flowing and economies growing. These steps were logical for central bankers striving to reverse a deepening economic crisis. But there's evidence that there is too much easy money around. It's winding up in stocks and real estate, pushing prices up too far and too fast for the underlying economic fundamentals.
Much of the concern is focused on China, where government stimulus efforts have been large and effective. Money in China has been especially easy to find. Aggregate new bank lending surged 201% in the first half of 2009 from the same period a year earlier, to nearly \$ 1.1 trillion.

T. We therefore tracked 268 intruder males until we saw them fighting a resident male.

Solution:

'Q' opens the paragraph.
'T' should follow it i.e., the words "we therefore tracked .........." continue the idea in 'Q'.
The words 'resident male' in 'T' find a continuation in 'S'.
The words 'the two neighbourws' and 'they' in 'P' and 'R' respectively are linked. Hence QTSPR.

QUESTION: 28

Arrange the sentences in their proper order so that they make a logically meaningful paragraph.

P. In the west, Allied Forces had fought their way through southern Italy as far as Rome.

S. Houses in which ordinary Egyptians lived have not been preserved, and when most people died they were buried in simple graves.
T. We know infinitely more about the wealthy people of Egypt than we do about the ordinary people, as most monuments were made for the rich.

Solution:

The paragraph starts with 'T' as it launches the topic of how much is know about the rich and the poor in Egypt.
The sentence ends with the statement that 'mounments were made for the rich'.
Hence 'S' should follow.
Then the discussion moves on to sources of information.
Hence TSR. 'Papyri' in 'Q' and 'sources of information' in 'R' are linked.
'P' rounds up the discussion by stating that notwithstanding the discussion in the preceding statements. Hence TSRQP.

QUESTION: 30

Arrange the sentences in their proper order so that they make a logically meaningful paragraph.

P. Experts such as Larry Burns, head of research at GM, reckon that only such a full hearted leap will allow the world to cope with the mass motorisation that will one day come or India.
Q. But once hydrogen is being produced from biomass or extracted from underground coal or made from water, using nuclear or renewable electricity, the way will be open for a huge reduction in carbon emissions from the whole system.
R. In theory, once all the bugs have been stored out, fuel cells deliver better total fuel economy than any existing engines.
S. That is twice as good as the internal combustion engine, but only five percentage points better than a diesel hybrid.
T. Allowing for the resources needed to extract hydrogen from hydrocarbon, oil, coal or gas, the fuel cell has an efficiency of 30%.

Solution:

'R' begins the paragraph. 'T' continues the idea of 'total fuel economy' which is expressed in 'R'.
'S' is the continuation as it says that the 30% efficiency is twice as good as the efficiency of the internal combustion engine.
Hence RTS. 'Q' introduces another facet i.e., reducing carbon emissions. 'P' continues, as it talks about a full - hearted leap, which is a reference to what is mentioned in 'Q'. Hence RTSQP.
