Test: Evaluating Conference - Question 1

Directions: In these type of questions, a passage is given followed by four statements, you have to decide which is the best possible conclusion drawn from the information given in passage.

Inspite of the economics of direct entry system of recruitment being appreciated and accepted by the Merchant Navy our armed forces still seem to be dragging their feet on this issue. If anything, our defence organisation appears to be continually augmenting its training establishments by having in its fold professional institutions providing basic university educational. There is not dearth of such institutions in our civil education system. This results in unnecessary duplication at the expense of the defence budget.
Q. From the above paragraph it may be inferred that

Detailed Solution for Test: Evaluating Conference - Question 1

Test: Evaluating Conference - Question 2

Directions: In these type of questions, a passage is given followed by four statements, you have to decide which is the best possible conclusion drawn from the information given in passage.
In a recent study published in the journal of family practice no significant benefit over a placebo was found from using the antibiotic Amoxicillin among 135 patients with typical indications of sinus infection.
All the patients complained of sinusitis, with pus in nasal cavity, facial pressure of nasal discharge lasting longer than seven days. A small subgroup of patients receiving the antibiotic became better faster than the others. But the researchers were unable to discern anything about those patients prior to administering Amoxcillin that indicated a bacterial infection, as opposed to a viral one.

Q. From the above passage it may be inferred that

Detailed Solution for Test: Evaluating Conference - Question 2

Due to ‘usefulness for sinusitis patients’ option (b) is the visible option.

Test: Evaluating Conference - Question 3

Directions: In these type of questions, a passage is given followed by four statements, you have to decide which is the best possible conclusion drawn from the information given in passage.
According to the National Agricultural Aviation Society (NAAS) without the use of crop protection products to control insects, weeds and diseases, crop yields per acre will drop by more than 50%. The first aerial application of insecticide occured in 1921 and it was a huge success. By contrast in today’s economy all aircraft that are classified as aerial applications do more than just apply insecticide, today they also spread and apply fertilizers.
Q. From the information given above it cannot be validly concluded that,

Detailed Solution for Test: Evaluating Conference - Question 3

From the passage, it can be concluded that if crops yields per acre drops by more than 50%, then crop protection products have not been used to control insects weeds and diseases.

Test: Evaluating Conference - Question 4

Directions: The passage is given below, followed by several possible inferences which can be drawn from the facts stated in the passage. You have to examine each inference separately in the context of the passage and decide upon its degree of truth or falsity.

Passage

Efficiency of capital has long been an area of neglect and remains so. This aspect is underscored in the eleventh plan draft, ironically in its demand for the rate of investment being raised to 35.1% of GDP from 29.1% in 2004-05.
The irony lies in the fact that the planning commission has consistently relied on the Incremental Capital Output Ratio (ICOR) as tools of expediency rather than one designed to promote efficiency. Yet, the ratio conceptually seeks to get the most out of the capital stock that is existing and is being added. The ratio now is 3.7, i.e., the capital needed for an output of 1 is 3.7 times. If the effective ratio is brought down during 2007-2012, then it would be possible to achieve a GDP growth value of 8.9% over the period with a lesser level of investment than 35.1%.
Nobody doubts that capital formation is critical to a higher rate of growth in GDP but efficiency lies not so much on the capital stock as its utilisation.

Q. Efficiency of capital largely depends upon the capital stock.

Detailed Solution for Test: Evaluating Conference - Question 4

It is clear from the last part of the passage that efficiency of the capital largely depends upon the utilisation of the capital.

Test: Evaluating Conference - Question 5

Directions: The passage is given below, followed by several possible inferences which can be drawn from the facts stated in the passage. You have to examine each inference separately in the context of the passage and decide upon its degree of truth or falsity.

Q. When the rate of investment increases the capital output ratio also increases.

Detailed Solution for Test: Evaluating Conference - Question 5

No such correlation can be established. Given data are inadequate.

Q. Higher the capital output ratio, higher is the growth of GDP.

Detailed Solution for Test: Evaluating Conference - Question 6

It is clear from the passage that lower the capital output ratio, higher is the growth of GDP.

Q. The present rate of investment is around 30% of GDP.

Detailed Solution for Test: Evaluating Conference - Question 7

According to the passage, the rate of investment during 2004-05 was 29.1% of GDP and the target has been set at 35.1% by 2011-12. Therefore, around 30% seems safe enough.

Passage
In the absence of an integrated sugar field to sale policy, the Indian sugar industry has become a victim of surplus production and price mismatch of sugarcane and finished sugar.

The domestic consumption may not exceed 13.5 million tonne.
Though the industry could export 10.5 million tonne to different countries during 2008-09, this year’s export policy, existing norms and international market conditions may bring down the export quantity to half a million tonne.
