Consider the following statements regarding West Nile Virus.

  1. The West Nile Virus is a mosquito-borne, RNA virus.
  2. It is a flavivirus related to the viruses that cause Japanese encephalitis, and yellow fever.
  3. Birds are the reservoir host of the virus.

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

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

The West Nile Virus is a mosquito-borne, single-stranded RNA virus. It is a flavivirus related to the viruses that cause St. Louis encephalitis, Japanese encephalitis, and yellow fever.

Culex species of mosquitoes act as the principal vectors for transmission. It is transmitted by infected mosquitoes between and among humans and animals, including birds, which are the reservoir host of the virus.

“Mosquitoes become infected when they feed on infected birds, which circulate the virus in their blood for a few days. The virus eventually gets into the mosquito’s salivary glands. During later blood meals (when mosquitoes bite), the virus may be injected into humans and animals, where it can multiply and possibly cause illness.”

Test: June 2022 Weekly Current Affair - 1 - Question 2

Consider the following statements.

  1. Urea is a chemical fertiliser that artificially provides nitrogen, a major nutrient required by plants.
  2. The efficiency of liquid nano urea is more than double the efficiency of conventional urea.
  3. Liquid nano urea provide a targeted supply of nutrients to crops, as they are absorbed by the stomata found on the epidermis of leaves.

Which of the above statement sis/are correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: June 2022 Weekly Current Affair - 1 - Question 2

Prime Minister inaugurated the country’s first liquid nano urea plant at Kalol.
liquid nano urea is essentially urea in the form of a nanoparticle. Urea is a chemical nitrogen fertiliser, white in colour, which artificially provides nitrogen, a major nutrient required by plants.
The product has been developed at IFFCO’s Nano Biotechnology Research Centre (NBRC) at Kalol.
While conventional urea has an efficiency of about 25 per cent, the efficiency of liquid nano urea can be as high as 85-90 per cent. Conventional urea fails to have the desired impact on crops as it is often applied incorrectly, and the nitrogen in it is vaporised or lost as gas. A lot of nitrogen is also washed away during irrigation.
Liquid nano urea is sprayed directly on the leaves and gets absorbed by the plant. Fertilisers in nano form provide a targeted supply of nutrients to crops, as they are absorbed by the stomata, pores found on the epidermis of leaves.

Gait is defined as a manner of walking or moving on foot. Gait analysis is a technique in podiatry medical care and the treatment of the foot, which is used to evaluate and diagnose conditions that affect walking and posture.

The analysis can help experts zero in on the source of an injury or pain that determines the way in which an individual stands or walks. It can also be used by physiotherapists for treatment, and in athletics training so that athletes can perform better and in greater comfort.

Gait analysis techniques have now been borrowed by forensic sciences experts to identify suspects in criminal cases. For the analysis, experts compare the gait of a person seen in CCTV footage from the crime spot with a sample of the suspect’s walk. Using computer software, the two images are compared.
In India, police have relied on the gait test in a few other cases previously.
The degree of uniqueness of a person’s gait compared with other, more precise parameters used to establish identity, such as fingerprints or a DNA test, is yet to be established.

  3. Gravitational lensing is opposite to the Einstein’s theory of general relativity.
  4. More massive the object, the stronger is its gravitational field.

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: June 2022 Weekly Current Affair - 1 - Question 19
  • The phenomenon of gravitational lensing occurs when a huge amount of matter, such as a massive galaxy, cluster of galaxies or a black hole, creates a gravitational field that distorts and magnifies the light from objects behind it.
  • Gravitational lensing is based on Einstein’s theory of general relativity (Mass bend light).
  • Normal lenses such as the ones in a magnifying glass work by bending light rays that pass through them in a process known as refraction, in order to focus the light somewhere else.
  • Similarly, the gravitational field of a massive object causes light rays passing close to that object to be bent and refocused somewhere else.
  • The more massive the object, the stronger its gravitational field and hence the greater the bending of light rays – just like using denser materials to make optical lenses results in a greater amount of refraction.
  • In effect, gravitational lenses act like natural cosmic telescopes.
Test: June 2022 Weekly Current Affair - 1 - Question 20

Consider the following statements.

During the course of their evolution, massive stars – with masses around 10-25 times the mass of the Sun – eventually collapse and shrink to form very compact objects called neutron stars. A subset of these neutron stars are the so-called magnetars which possess intense magnetic fields. These are highly dense and have breathtakingly high rotation speeds – they have rotational periods that can be just 0.3 to 12.0 seconds.

  • Countervailing Duties (CVDs) are tariffs levied on imported goods to offset subsidies made to producers of these goods in the exporting country.
  • CVDs are meant to level the playing field between domestic producers of a product and foreign producers of the same product who can afford to sell it at a lower price because of the subsidy they receive from their government.
  • Anti-dumping duty is a customs duty on imports providing a protection against the dumping of goods at prices substantially lower than the normal value whereas Countervailing duty is a customs duty on goods that have received government subsidies in the originating or exporting country.
  • Anti-dumping measures are taken to ensure fair trade and provide a level playing field to the domestic industry. 
Test: June 2022 Weekly Current Affair - 1 - Question 22

Consider the following statements.

  1. A key pillar of democratic governance is citizens’ power to question the state.
