Detailed Solution for Test: March 2023 Weekly Current Affair - 2 - Question 3
  • Extensive fishing off the Coromandel coast could be forcing the great seahorse to migrate laboriously toward Odisha.
  • There are 46 species of seahorses reported worldwide. The coastal ecosystems of India house nine out of 12 species found in the Indo-Pacific, one of the hotspots of seahorse populations that are distributed across diverse ecosystems such as seagrass, mangroves, macroalgal beds, and coral reefs. 
  • These nine species are distributed along the coasts of eight States and five Union Territories from Gujarat to Odisha, apart from Lakshadweep and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
  • The population of the great seahorse, which is among the eight species tagged ‘vulnerable’, is declining due to its overexploitation for traditional Chinese medicines and as ornamental fish, combined with general destructive fishing and fisheries bycatch, the study said.
  • Seahorses are poor swimmers but migrate by rafting — clinging to floating substrata such as macroalgae or plastic debris for dispersal by ocean currents – to new habitats for successful maintenance of their population. 
  • The species is abundant off the Coromandel coast (Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu) but is under extensive fishing pressure, with 13 million individuals caught per year, the study said.

If the rupee is devalued against foreign currencies, it may lead to

  1. A higher Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) in the banking system
  2. Increase in the inflow of foreign exchange
  3. Greater exports and lesser imports

Select the correct answer code:

Detailed Solution for Test: March 2023 Weekly Current Affair - 2 - Question 5

As rupee is devalued, it becomes cheaper for other country residents. So, they demand greater Indian goods (exports). Reverse happens for us, we demand lesser imports (as they become costlier in terms of Indian currency).
Statement 3 leads to statement 2, i.e. inflow of foreign exchange. There is another channel for this flow, which is greater FDI or FII. For a foreign investor, Indian securities or land or labour would become cheaper, and there is thus an incentive to invest in India.

  3. The Supreme Court laid down dual test to examine the validity of a law placed in the Ninth Schedule, i.e; Whether it violates any fundamental right and if yes whether the violation also damages or destroys the basic structure.

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: March 2023 Weekly Current Affair - 2 - Question 6
  • The Ninth Schedule was added to the Constitution by the First Amendment in 1951.
  • In IR Coelho versus State of Tamil Nadu, various laws placed in the Ninth Schedule were challenged on the ground that any law violating fundamental rights should be struck down as “unconstitutional” and that the court’s power of judicial review cannot be taken away. A nine-judge constitution bench delivered its verdict on the issue in January 2007.
  • The SC upheld the Parliament’s power to place a particular law in the Ninth Schedule. But it said laws placed in the Ninth Schedule are open to judicial scrutiny and that such laws do not enjoy a blanket protection.
  • Laws placed in the Ninth Schedule after the Kesavananda Bhartai Judgment on April 24, 1973, when it propounded the “basic structure” doctrine, were open to challenge.
  • It laid down dual test to examine the validity of a law placed in the Ninth Schedule. Whether it violates any fundamental right and if yes whether the violation also damages or destroys the basic structure. If the answer to both the questions is in the affirmative, then only a law placed in the Ninth Schedule can be declared unconstitutional.
Test: March 2023 Weekly Current Affair - 2 - Question 7

Consider the following statements regarding Hurricanes.

  1. Storms that form over the Atlantic Ocean or central and eastern North Pacific with their wind speed around 100 miles per hour are called hurricanes.
  2. Warm ocean water and moist, humid air is not conducive for the formation of Hurricanes.
  3. Hurricane activity is common for North America from June through November with peaking in September.

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: March 2023 Weekly Current Affair - 2 - Question 7
  • The typical “season” for hurricanes is shifting, as climate warming creates conditions conducive to storms in more months of the year. And hurricanes are also making landfall in regions far outside the historic norm.
  • As for timing, hurricane activity is common for North America from June through November, peaking in September – after a summertime buildup of warm water conditions.
  • Hurricanes need two main ingredients — warm ocean water and moist, humid air. When warm seawater evaporates, its heat energy is transferred to the atmosphere. This fuels the storm’s winds to strengthen. Without it, hurricanes can’t intensify and will fizzle out.
  • While technically the same phenomenon, these big storms get different names depending on where and how they were formed.
    • Storms that form over the Atlantic Ocean or central and eastern North Pacific are called “hurricanes” when their wind speeds reach at least 74 miles per hour (119 kilometers per hour). Up to that point, they’re known as “tropical storms.”

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: March 2023 Weekly Current Affair - 2 - Question 8
  • The NAAC, an autonomous body under the University Grants Commission (UGC), assesses and certifies Higher-level Educational Institutions (HEIs) with gradings as part of accreditation. The ratings of institutions range from A++ to C. If an institution is graded D, it means it is not accredited.
  • Under the rules, only higher education institutions that are at least six years old, or from where at least two batches of students have graduated, can apply. The accreditation is valid for five years. Aspiring institutes need to be recognised by the UGC and have regular students enrolled in their full-time teaching and research programmes.
  • The current approach has been described as “input-based”. The first step has an applicant institution submitting a self-study report of information related to quantitative and qualitative metrics. The data is then validated by NAAC expert teams, followed by peer team visits to the institutions.

  3. Snow cover of ice on water reduces dissolved oxygen concentration.

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: March 2023 Weekly Current Affair - 2 - Question 9
  • Dissolved oxygen (DO) is a measure of how much oxygen is dissolved in the water – the amount of oxygen available to living aquatic organisms. The amount of dissolved oxygen in a stream or lake can tell us a lot about its water quality.
  • Oxygen concentrations are much higher in air, which is about 21% oxygen, than in water, which is a tiny fraction of 1 percent oxygen.
  • Dissolved oxygen levels decrease with increasing temperature and atmospheric oxygen content is far higher than dissolved oxygen levels.
  • Ice and snow reduce the amount of sunlight reaching aquatic plants, thereby reducing photosynthesis and oxygen production.

  • Scientists have discovered a new type of quasicrystal, one with 12-fold symmetry, in the Sand Hills of north central Nebraska, USA, according to a recent study.
  • Quasicrystal is essentially a crystal-like substance. However, unlike a crystal, in which atoms are arranged in a repeating pattern, a quasicrystal consists of atoms that are arranged in a pattern that doesn’t repeat itself regularly.
  • According to the study, it’s also the first time that researchers have found a quasicrystal somewhere other than meteorites or the debris from nuclear blasts. Notably, scientists have been producing them in laboratories for years now, but it’s quite rare to discover naturally occurring quasicrystals.
  • “The dodecagonal quasicrystal is an example of a quasicrystal of any kind formed by electrical discharge, suggesting other places to search for quasicrystals on Earth or in space and for synthesising them in the laboratory”, the study said.
  • Quasicrystals have been widely created in labs and known to “possess novel electrical, photonic, and mechanical properties that aren’t found in other materials, making them an attractive prospect for materials scientists.

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: March 2023 Weekly Current Affair - 2 - Question 16

The word quasar stands for quasi-stellar radio source. Quasars got that name because they looked starlike when astronomers first began to notice them in the late 1950s and early 60s. But quasars aren’t stars. They’re now known as young galaxies, located at vast distances from us, with their numbers increasing towards the edge of the visible universe. How can they be so far away and yet still visible? The answer is that quasars are extremely bright, up to 1,000 times brighter than our Milky Way galaxy. We know, therefore, that they’re highly active, emitting staggering amounts of radiation across the entire electromagnetic spectrum.
