DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 1

Directions: Read the given passage and answer the question that follows.

The fossil remains of the first flying vertebrates, the pterosaurs, have intrigued paleontologists for more than two centuries. How such large creatures, which had wingspans from 8 to 12 meters, solved the problems of powered flight, and exactly what these creatures were - reptiles or birds — are among the questions scientists have puzzled over.

Perhaps the least controversial assertion about the pterosaurs is that they were reptiles. Their skulls, pelvises and hind feet are reptilian. The anatomy of their wings suggests that they did not evolve into the class of birds. In pterosaurs, a greatly elongated fourth finger of each forelimb supported a wing-like membrane. In birds the second finger is the principal strut of the wing. If the pterosaur walked or remained stationary, the fourth finger and with it the wing, could only turn upward in an extended inverted V-shape alongside the animal's body. Both the pterosaurs and the birds have hollow bones, a feature that represents a saving in weight. In the birds, however, these bones are reinforced more massively by internal struts.

Although scales typically cover reptiles, the pterosaurs probably had hairy coats. The recent discovery of a pterosaur specimen covered in long, dense and relatively thick hair-like fossil material, was the first clear evidence that this reasoning was correct. Efforts to explain how the pterosaurs became air-borne have led to suggestions that they launched themselves by jumping from cliffs, by dropping from trees, or even by rising into light winds from the crests of waves.

Q. The skeleton of a pterosaur can be distinguished from that of a bird by the

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 1 The second paragraph states, "The anatomy of their wings suggests that they did not evolve into the class of birds." Thus, anatomy of the wings became the differentiating factor between the skeletons or overall form of pterosaurs and the birds. Option 1 is incorrect as although the wing span of pterosaurs is described, nothing with respect to wing span of 'birds' is mentioned. Hence, we cannot compare the wing spans. Nothing with respect to option 3 is either mentioned or can be inferred. Option 2 is incorrect as presence of hollow bones is a common, instead of a differentiating, feature between the birds and the pterosaurs.

Q. Which of the following is a characteristic of the pterosaurs?

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 2 The answer can be inferred from the line, "If the pterosaur walked or remained stationary, the fourth finger and with it the wing, could only turn upward in an extended inverted V-shape alongside of the animal's body." This implies that the pterosaurs were unable to fold their wings, whether they were stationary or mobile on ground. The anatomy of these birds was such that their wings could only turn upwards. Nothing about options 1 and 4 is stated in the passage. Option 2 is incorrect as their bones were hollow, not solid.

Q. From the passage, a synonym for 'intrigued' is

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 3 'Intrigue' means 'to arouse the curiosity or interest of' and 'fascinate' means 'to attract the interest of someone'. The pterosaur fossils have fascinated/intrigued the paleontologists for more than two centuries.

Q. Which of the following statements is TRUE in context of the passage?

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 4 Except 1, each of the statements is false. Option 1 is true as one of the typical features of reptiles (scales) may not have been present in pterosaurs, as they had hairy coats as the layer which covered their bodies. Nothing about options 2, 3 and 4 is either stated or can be inferred.

DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 20

Directions: Four alternative summaries are given below the underneath text. Choose the option that best captures the essence of the text.

Many outsiders see China as a land of opportunity. Some seek to settle. Yet the government is becoming more draconian towards such groups. Tens of thousands of Chinese men have undocumented marriages with women from Vietnam, Myanmar and Laos, often of the same (non-Han) ethnic group. After years of officialdom turning a blind eye, many of these women are now being sent back and their ID cards confiscated. Guangzhou's government has launched a three-year plan to tackle illegal immigration. It named no target but may have its eye on up to 500,000 Africans, many of them overstaying their visas, in part of Guangzhou known by locals as "Chocolate City".

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 20 1. "High time" cannot be implied from the given paragraph.

2. Though this is a fact that Chinese men have undocumented marriages, they cannot be held responsible for the growing immigration, especially when many outsiders are keen on entering China.

3. True. Guangzhou's government would be tackling illegal immigration. Hence, the essence of the passage is that whoever from outside wants to settle in China, he/she should have valid or legal immigration documents.

4. This can only be presumed.

DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 21

Directions: Four alternative summaries are given below the underneath text. Choose the option that best captures the essence of the text.

Great people are thought to be admirable and we emulate them because they did something more than what other people did. "He who does anything because it is the custom, makes no choice" according to John Stuart Mill. Actually, it is your originality which matters most. Even if you do the same thing as people do, you should have a different approach, a different way of carrying it out. It will give you great satisfaction. You should, however, have a well-defined purpose. It will keep you from wasting your time and energy.

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 21 The passage tends to capture how and why a person becomes great i.e. when he does something in a different manner with a purpose.

This is best captured by option 2. Options 1 and 4 do not take into account "the purpose". Also the purpose of the passage is not to cite the reasons as to why people emulate great people, so option 3 is incorrect. Option 4 just revolves around one aspect of the text; it fails to capture the essence of the given text.

DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 22

Directions: Four alternative summaries are given below the underneath text. Choose the option that best captures the essence of the text.

Evolution is no explanation. It does not say, why the process should have ever occurred, why life should occur at all. Survival of the fittest does not carry us far. Life has little survival value as compared with matter from which it is supposed to have sprung. A rock survives for hundreds of millions of years, while even the oldest tree is only a few thousand years old. If survival was the aim of nature, life would have never appeared.

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 22 The essence is captured from the first and last sentence of the passage.

The first question is WHY to life.

The last sentence answers that mere survival was not the objective of life.

Both are captured in Option 3.

DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 23

Directions: Four alternative summaries are given below the underneath text. Choose the option that best captures the essence of the text.

When a certain desire is fulfilled, the mind temporarily becomes calm which results in manifestation of happiness within. Being unaware of the fact that the joy experienced was from within - we superimpose our feeling of delight on the object. We are convinced it was the object that made us happy and therefore, become attached to it.

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 23 Option 1 is incorrect as it reverses the cause-effect relationship. It is not our ignorance (effect) which stems from our attachment to material objects (cause), it is our attachment to material objects (effect) which happens due to our ignorance of what actually caused happiness (cause).

Option 2 is incorrect as it only explains a man becoming a materialist. It does not account for the misleading notion of man who wrongly reasons that objects generate happiness.

Option 3 is correct as the misleading belief of man has been accounted for in the option.

Option 4 is incorrect as the passage does not focus on man's ability to fulfill desire.

DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 24

Directions: Four alternative summaries are given below the underneath text. Choose the option that best captures the essence of the text.

Think of stress as a monster who lives in your body and feeds on uncertainty. The monster's most satisfying meal starts with the sentence, "What will happen if …?" What will happen if that presentation fails? What will happen if one of the projects I am working on runs into objections? What will happen if I don't have enough time to finish my budget? As the uncertainty grows, so does the monster.

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 24 Option 1 is incorrect, as uncertainty is not a monster, as is conveyed by this option.

Option 2 is correct, as stress has been metaphorically called a monster which keeps on growing with anxiety.

Option 3 is incorrect as it cannot be said that the monster of stress ever feeds on uncertainty. This means that a person always remains uncertain and thus can never be free of stress. This has not been conveyed in the paragraph.

Option 4 is incorrect as it cannot be said that increase in uncertainty causes the monstrosity (bestiality or brutality) of the stress to increase.

DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 25

Directions: Four alternative summaries are given below the underneath text. Choose the option that best captures the essence of the text.

India has one of the lowest yields in farming among other nations. Yields have to go up dramatically. Farm profitability will then follow. Farming has to be a remunerative profession. Otherwise farmers will use their land for other purposes and India's overall farm output will decline. That would be a disaster. To avoid that, the government has to ensure reasonably priced perishables for consumers as well as a decent price at the farm gate.

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 25 The paragraph accounts for government measures or intervention at both producer end, i.e. farmer, and consumer end. Only then can farming continue to be profitable or sustainable else lands would be put to alternative uses, i.e. farming will come to an end. This essence is captured only by option 1.
DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 26

An electric wire is sold only in multiples of 1 metre. A customer requires several lengths of wire, each 85 cm long. To avoid any wastage and to minimise labour, he should purchase the wire in multiples of

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 26 LCM of 100 cm and 85 cm = 1700 cm = 17 m

So, to avoid any wastage and to minimize labor, he should purchase the wire in multiples of 17 m.

Abhi is exactly between Tina and Pinku. Tinu is exactly between Minu and Tina. So, we get final arrangement as given below:

So, Sonu is third to the left of Tinu.

DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 28

The minute hand of a clock crosses the hour hand x minutes past 7 in the evening. Some guests come 20 minutes later. At what time do the guests come?

Detailed Solution for DU LLB Mock Test - 20 (New Pattern) - Question 28 We know that in 60 min, the minute hand gains 55 minutes over the hour hand. At 7 o'clock, the minute hand and the hour hand are 35 min apart. To cross the latter, the min hand must gain 35 min.

Since the min hand gains 55 min in 60 min, therefore

it will gain 35 min in 60/55 × 35 = 38.18 = 38:11

So, the guests come at 7:58:11 pm.
