DU LLB Mock Test - 14 (New Pattern) - Question 1

Directions: Read the passage and answer the following question.

Nearly two thousand years have passed since a census decreed by Caesar Augusts became part of the greatest story ever told. Many things have changed in the intervening years. The hotel industry worries more about overbuilding than overcrowding, and if they had to meet an unexpected influx, few inns would have a manager to accommodate the weary guests. Now it is the census taker that does the traveling in the fond hope that a highly mobile population will stay put long enough to get a good sampling. Methods of gathering, recording, and evaluating information have presumably been improved a great deal. And where then it was the modest purpose of Rome to obtain a simple head count as an adequate basis for levying taxes, now batteries of complicated statistical series furnished by governmental agencies and private organizations are eagerly scanned and interpreted by sages and seers to get a clue to future events. The Bible does not tell us how the Roman census takers made out, and as regards our more immediate concern, the reliability of present-day economic forecasting, there are considerable differences of opinion. They were aired at the celebration of the 125th anniversary of the American Statistical Association. There was the thought that business forecasting might well be on its way from an art to a science, and some speakers talked about newfangled computers and high-fluting mathematical systems in terms of excitement and endearment which we, at least in our younger years when these things mattered, would have associated more readily with the description of a fair maiden. But others pointed to the deplorable record of highly esteemed forecasts and forecasters with a batting average below that of the Mets, and the President-elect of the association cautioned that "high powered statistical methods are usually in order where the facts are crude and inadequate, the exact contrary of what crude and inadequate statisticians assume". We left his birthday party somewhere between hope and despair with the conviction, not really newly acquired, that proper statistical methods applied to ascertainable facts have their merits in economic forecasting as long as neither forecaster nor public is deluded into mistaking the delineation of probabilities and trends for a prediction of certainties of mathematical exactitude.

Q. On the basis of the passage, it can be inferred that the author would agree with which of the following statements?

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 14 (New Pattern) - Question 1 IRefer to the lines, "high powered statistical methods are usually in order where the facts are crude and inadequate ... mistaking the delineation of probabilities and trends for a prediction of certainties of mathematical exactitude."

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 14 (New Pattern) - Question 3 In these types of questions, we ought to cover the entire passage. There is just a reference to the Bible but the passage doesn't study it. 'An introductory college textbook on statistics' can't be the answer because of dearth of any statistical data. It doesn't talk about any census figures as well. Option 4 is the most relevant choice.
DU LLB Mock Test - 14 (New Pattern) - Question 4

Directions: Read the passage and answer the following question.

Nearly two thousand years have passed since a census decreed by Caesar Augusts became part of the greatest story ever told. Many things have changed in the intervening years.

Q. The author's tone can best be described as

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 14 (New Pattern) - Question 4 The tone is quite humorous and sarcastic as well. The reference to the 'fair maiden' has an edge of humour to it. It is neither scornful nor objective. There is no pessimism either. Hence, the answer is option 4.
DU LLB Mock Test - 14 (New Pattern) - Question 5

Directions: Read the passage and answer the following question.

Nearly two thousand years have passed since a census decreed by Caesar Augusts became part of the greatest story ever told. Many things have changed in the intervening years. The hotel industry worries more about overbuilding than overcrowding, and if they had to meet an unexpected influx, few inns would have a manager to accommodate the weary guests.

Q. The author refers to the Romans primarily in order to

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 14 (New Pattern) - Question 5 The passage gives an example of Rome for its crude statistical methods and draws comparisons with today's methods that are equally unreliable - "The Bible does not tell us how the Roman census takers made out, and as regards our more immediate concern, the reliability of present-day economic forecasting, there are considerable differences of opinion". So, (2) is the correct option choice. The author does not need to go back to ancient times just to cite on authority. Also there is nothing in the passage that can be termed as a comparison between familiar and unfamiliar concepts.

Directions: Select the option that expresses the central idea in the most clear, concise and correct manner.

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 14 (New Pattern) - Question 8 Ought to give priority to' is the correct phrasal usage.

DU LLB Mock Test - 14 (New Pattern) - Question 9

Directions: Select the option that expresses the central idea in the most clear, concise and correct manner.

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 14 (New Pattern) - Question 9 Rules are 'laid down'. 'Down' is found after 'laid' only in option 2. Hence, 2 is the correct answer.

Directions: Select the option that expresses the central idea in the most clear, concise and correct manner.

DU LLB Mock Test - 14 (New Pattern) - Question 48

Directions: The item below consists of a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements is sufficient to answer the question.

Statement I: Anil is four ranks ahead of Ankit, who is 15th from the bottom in his class.

Statement II: Nivedita is one rank behind Anil and 18th from the bottom in her class.

Q. What is the rank of Anil in a class of 30 students?

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 14 (New Pattern) - Question 48 From I:

Therefore,

Anil's rank from the top = 30 - 14 - 4 = 12th

From II:

Therefore,

Nivedita's rank from the top = 30 - 18 + 1 = 13th

Anil's rank from the top = 13 - 1 = 12th

Therefore, the answer of the question can be obtained from only statement I or from only statement II.

Hence, this is the correct answer.
