Test: August 2022 Weekly Current Affair - 3 - Question 1

Consider the following statements.

  1. Inflation is closely related to interest rates, which can influence exchange rates.
  2. Inflation is more likely to have a significant positive effect on a currency’s value and foreign exchange rate.

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: August 2022 Weekly Current Affair - 3 - Question 1

The rate of inflation in a country can have a major impact on the value of the country’s currency and the rates of foreign exchange it has with the currencies of other nations. However, inflation is just one factor among many that combine to influence a country’s exchange rate.
Inflation is more likely to have a significant negative effect, rather than a significant positive effect, on a currency’s value and foreign exchange rate.
Inflation and Interest Rates:
Inflation is closely related to interest rates, which can influence exchange rates. Countries attempt to balance interest rates and inflation, but the interrelationship between the two is complex and often difficult to manage. Low interest rates spur consumer spending and economic growth, and generally positive influences on currency value. If consumer spending increases to the point where demand exceeds supply, inflation may ensue, which is not necessarily a bad outcome. But low interest rates do not commonly attract foreign investment. Higher interest rates tend to attract foreign investment, which is likely to increase the demand for a country’s currency.

Detailed Solution for Test: August 2022 Weekly Current Affair - 3 - Question 8

The International Mobile Equipment Identity or IMEI is a unique number that is used to identify a device on a mobile network. It has 15 digits, and is like your phone’s unique identity. When you use the internet or place a call through your cellular service provider, then this number is used to verify the identity of your device. If you have a dual SIM phone, then you will have two IMEI numbers, one for each slot.

How is it useful?
Its operational use aside, the IMEI number can help network providers track down a device in case it gets stolen or is lost. Once such loss or theft is reported, the carrier/s can deny the device access to the cellular network even with a new SIM card. This will practically render the device useless as it won’t be able to make or receive calls.

Are there any challenges?
According to the police, few gangs have started formatting stolen phones.

“Mobile phones which don’t have a flexible operating system can be broken into. There is a software that can change IMEI numbers of the phones as well. This might cause trouble for law enforcement agencies in blocking stolen devices.

Warmer oceans cause deoxygenation both because oxygen is less soluble in warmer water, and through temperature driven stratification of the ocean which inhibits the production of oxygen from photosynthesis.
