SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 13

Directions: The question consists of one or more than one principle and some facts. You are to examine the principle(s) and apply it/them to the given facts, and select the best option.

Principle: It can be a ground for divorce if the wife refuses to stay with in-laws.

Facts: Uma and Rajesh are married. Both have well-paying jobs, and they have been living with Rajesh's parents at their ancestral house for five years. Uma gets a promotion and is supposed to go out of town for three months for training. Rajesh's parents insist her to refuse the promotion and stay with them. Uma, who is very committed to her job, goes for the training. Rajesh files for the divorce on the ground of Uma's refusal to stay with her in-laws.

Decide.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 13
This is not a case of denial to stay with in-laws as the question clearly states that Uma and Rajesh have been staying with Rajesh's parents for five years. Uma goes away for three months of training, which in no way qualifies for a divorce application. The principle says that it can be a ground for divorce if the wife refuses to stay with the in-laws, but in the given situation, Uma has not refused to stay with them. She just leaves for the training for her promotion.
SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 14

Directions: The question consists of two statements, one labelled as Principle(s) and the other as Facts. You are to examine the Principle(s) and apply it to the given Facts carefully and select the best option.

Principles:

1. Article 18 of the Constitution of India provides that no title, not being a military or academic distinction shall be conferred by the state.

2. The Constitution of India says that no citizen of India shall accept any title from any foreign state without the prior consent of President.

Facts: Ministry of information and broadcasting of China instituted international awards in various categories of cinemas which were given in a gala ceremony held in Beijing. Joseph Kumar, a leading Tollywood actor and citizen of India, was awarded with the Award of Best International Actor. XYZ, an NGO, filed a writ petition against Joseph Kumar claiming that he violated the provisions of Indian Constitution by receiving award from China without the prior consent of President.

Decide.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 14
A title is something which is used as a suffix or prefix to the name of the recipient, for example, Sir, Rai Bahadur, etc. National award winner does not become the suffix or prefix to the name of the recipient. Hence, it cannot be equated with the conferment of a title. Therefore, no question of constitutional validity arises here.
SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 15

Directions: The question consists of two statements, one labelled as Principle(s) and the other as Facts. You are to examine the Principle(s) and apply it/them to the given Facts carefully, and select the best option.

Principle: Evidence must be confined to matters in issue.

Facts: A robbery took place in a society where jewellery and cash worth Rs. 10 lakh were stolen from a house. The camera of the adjoining house captured the video prior and post robbery. The tape was shown as evidence to the police; but the police viewed and refused to accept it.

Decide.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 15
The tape contained unnecessary information other than the robbery aspect, due to which the correct evidence was neglected. The principle suggests that the evidence must be confined to the matter which has arisen due to any of the circumstances. This helps avoid viewing of unnecessary facts and saves time.
SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 16

Directions: The following question consists of two statements, one labelled as Assertion (A) and the other as Reason (R). You are to examine these two statements carefully and select the correct answer accordingly.

Assertion (A): Lok Sabha can be dissolved.

Reason (R): Members of Lok Sabha are elected by first-past-the-post (FPTP) system to represent their respective constituencies.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 16
A is true. The normal term of Lok Sabha is five years from the date of its first meeting after the general elections after which it automatically dissolves. However, the President is authorised to dissolve the Lok Sabha at any time even before the completion of five years and this cannot be challenged in a court of law. R is true as members of Lok Sabha are elected as per the FPTP provision. But R is not a correct explanation of A. A first-past-the-post (FPTP) voting method is one in which voters indicate on a ballot the candidate of their choice and the candidate who receives the most votes wins.
SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 17

Directions: The question consists of two statements, one labelled as Principle(s) and the other as Facts. You are to examine the Principle(s) and apply it/them to the given Facts carefully, and select the best option.

Principle: Whoever abets any offence shall, if the act abetted is committed in consequence of the abetment, and no express provision is made by this Code for the punishment of such abet­ment, be punished with the punishment provided for the offence.

Facts: A instigates B to give false evidence. B, in consequence of the instigation, commits that offence.

Who is liable to punishment in this case?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 17
A is guilty of abetting that offence, and is liable to the same punishment as B. B is also liable because he had actively taken part in the commission of the offence. B could have resisted in committing such an offence but still went on doing the same. A being the instigator is liable as per the principle.
SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 18

Directions: The question consists of two statements, one labelled as Principle(s) and the other as Facts. You are to examine the Principle(s) and apply it/them to the given Facts carefully, and select the best option.

Principle: Whoever, intending to take dishonestly any moveable property out of the possession of any person without that per­son's consent, moves that property in order to such taking, is said to commit theft.

Facts: A cut down a tree on Z's ground, with the intention of dis­honestly taking the tree out of Z's possession without Z's con­sent.

Decide whether any punishable act has been done or not.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 18
Here, as soon as A has severed the tree in order to such taking, he has committed theft because he stole the tree without the permission of Z and whosoever intends to take dishonestly any moveable property out of the possession of any person without that per­son's consent, moves that property in order to such taking, is said to commit theft.
SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 19

Directions: The question consists of two statements, one labelled as Principle(s) and the other as Facts. You are to examine the Principle(s) and apply it/them to the given Facts carefully, and select the best option.

Principle: Mere silence as to the facts likely to affect the willingness of a person to enter into a contract is not a fraud, unless the circumstances of the case are such that, on close examination, it is found to be the duty of the person keeping silent to speak, or unless his silence is, in itself, equivalent to speech.

Facts: Ram sells by auction to Gagan a dog, which Ram knows to be of unsound state of mind. Ram says nothing to Gagan about the dog's unsound state of mind.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 19
In this case, Ram can be held liable for fraud because he did not speak about the state of mind of dog despite knowing it. According to the principle, if Ram says nothing then it would be deemed to be silence and mere silence as to the facts likely to affect the willingness of a person to enter into a contract is not a fraud, unless the circumstances of the case are such that, on close examination, it is found to be the duty of the person keeping silent to speak, or unless his silence is, in itself, equivalent to speech.
SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 20

Directions: The question consists of two statements, one labelled as Principle(s) and the other as Facts. You are to examine the Principle(s) and apply it/them to the given Facts carefully, and select the best option.

Principle: The parties to a contract must either perform, or offer to perform, their respective promises, unless such performance is dispensed with or excused under the provisions of the Contract Act, or of any other law.

Facts: A promises to deliver goods to B on a certain day on payment of Rs. 1,000. A dies before that day. What would be the next step in this situation?

Decide.

Facts: Tanuj proposes by courier to sell a television to Rahul at Rs. 10,000. Tanuj intimates revocation of his proposal, by an email after 6 hours, to Rahul due to unexpected fault in the working of the television.

State whether revocation of the offer is valid.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 21
Revocation must have been done before Rahul accepted the proposal. In the given situation, Tanuj revoked his proposal before the courier reached Rahul. An offeror may revoke an offer before it has been accepted, but the revocation must be communicated to the offeree. According to the given principle, communication of offer and acceptance is must for a valid contract. As there was no acceptance by Rahul and Tanuj's revocation was communicated to Rahul by an email, Tanuj's proposal stands validly revoked.
SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 22

Directions: The question consists of one or more than one principle and some facts. You are to examine the principle(s) and apply it/them to the given facts, and select the best option.

Principle 1: A woman has equal share in her husband's property, not vice versa.

Principle 2: The property inherited cannot be dispersed with self-acquired property.

Facts: Pam was married to Jim. After one year of marriage, Pam inherited a manor (a large country house with lands) from her father. After 3 years of marriage, Jim and Pam divorced, and Jim claimed equal share in the inherited property of Pam.

Decide.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 22
The principle clearly explains as to why Jim cannot claim a share in his wife's property. The first principle makes it very clear that only women can claim a share in property, not men. Therefore, Jim cannot claim a share in the property of Pam.
SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 23

Directions: The question consists of two statements, one labelled as Principle(s) and the other as Facts. You are to examine the Principle(s) and apply it/them to the given Facts carefully, and select the best option.

Principle: The Constitution of India provides that the state shall not discriminate against any citizens on grounds only of religion, race, caste, sex, place of birth or any of them.

Facts: The Government of Kerala passed the fee Act by virtue of which the residents of Kerala are exempted to pay the admission fees in the state government law colleges, while the residents outside Kerala are required to pay the admission fees for the admission in state government law colleges. A group of non-residents filed a writ against this Act, challenging it to be discriminatory in nature under the Constitution of India.

Decide.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 24
The Constitution of India bars discrimination on grounds of place of birth but not on the basis of the residence. Therefore, the Government of Kerala will not be liable for the violation of the Constitution of India.

A motorboat can travel at 10 km/hr in still water. It travelled 91 km downstream and then returned, taking 20 hours altogether. What is the speed of flow of water in the river?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 29
Let the speed of flow of water in the river be x km/hr.

910 + 91x + 910 - 91x = 20(102 - x2)

100 - x2 = 91

x2 = 9

x = 3

Thus, speed of flow of water in the river = 3 km/hr

Assumptions:

I. Detergents help to dislodge grease and dirt.

II. Detergents form more lather.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 30
In the statement, the main focus is based on the purpose of using detergent which is to clean objects.

The first assumption is implicit because this is based on the main purpose of the above statement.

The second statement is not based on the cleaning purpose of detergent.

Hence, option 3 is correct.

SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 37

The palace of Tripura's last king, Bir Bikram Kishore Manikya Bahadur, built in the 1930s in the middle of a lake at Melagarh in Sepahijala district belongs to the state government and is no longer a property of his descendants, the Tripura High Court has ruled. The verdict on Monday came five years after the state government moved the High Court after a lower court in 2015 ordered the return of the property to the erstwhile royal family. Bahadur's son, Kirit Bikram Kishore Manikya, had handed over the property to the state government for its maintenance and use for the public interest in 1972. The last king's daughter-in-law, Bibhu Kumari Devi, and grandson, Pradyot Kishore Deb Burman, moved the lower court in 2005 seeking the return of the palace called Neermahal, a popular tourist destination. A division bench of chief justice A K Qureshi and justice Arindam Lodh rejected the family's plea, saying the family had relinquished Neermahal. Burman said that they would challenge the High Court's verdict before the Supreme Court. In a Facebook post, he challenged the government to provide one legal document to suggest that his father gifted the palace to it.

"... I am glad that finally the state government has admitted that no money was ever paid for Neer Mahal to my father or my family. I will challenge the matter in [the] Supreme Court but I must ask one question to all if the erstwhile royal family cannot protect their private property then what hope does a poor person have."

Q. Which of the following, if true, contradicts Burman's argument against the High Court's orders?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 37
Burman's claim that Bahadur's family did not receive adequate compensation for the palace as a basis for return of ownership of the palace to the family can be effectively contradicted if it is proved that the family has been receiving the compensation. This is highlighted in Burman's quote where he claims "no money was ever paid for Neer Mahal to my father or my family".
SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 38

Burman's claim was made in the statement: he challenged the government to provide one legal document to suggest that his father gifted the palace to it. This makes option 4 the correct answer.
SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 39

The palace of Tripura's last king, Bir Bikram Kishore Manikya Bahadur, built in the 1930s in the middle of a lake at Melagarh in Sepahijala district belongs to the state government and is no longer a property of his descendants, the Tripura High Court has ruled. The verdict on Monday came five years after the state government moved the High Court after a lower court in 2015 ordered the return of the property to the erstwhile royal family. Bahadur's son, Kirit Bikram Kishore Manikya, had handed over the property to the state government for its maintenance and use for the public interest in 1972. The last king's daughter-in-law, Bibhu Kumari Devi, and grandson, Pradyot Kishore Deb Burman, moved the lower court in 2005 seeking the return of the palace called Neermahal, a popular tourist destination. A division bench of chief justice A K Qureshi and justice Arindam Lodh rejected the family's plea, saying the family had relinquished Neermahal. Burman said that they would challenge the High Court's verdict before the Supreme Court. In a Facebook post, he challenged the government to provide one legal document to suggest that his father gifted the palace to it.

"... I am glad that finally the state government has admitted that no money was ever paid for Neer Mahal to my father or my family. I will challenge the matter in [the] Supreme Court but I must ask one question to all if the erstwhile royal family cannot protect their private property then what hope does a poor person have."

Q. In support of which of the following does the High Court state that the late Bahadur's son had handed over the property to the state government for its maintenance and public use in 1972?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 39
The High Court had stated that Bahadur's son had handed over the property to the state government in order to make it clear that the property now belonged to the state government. Even the rejection of the plea was on this ground that the family had relinquished the palace. Therefore, option 3 is correct.

SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 41

Directions: Answer the given question based on the following passage:

If religion and community are associated with global violence in the minds of many people, then so are global poverty and inequality. There has, in fact, been an increasing tendency in recent years to justify policies of poverty removal on the ground that this is the surest way to prevent political strife and turmoil. Basing public policy—international as well as domestic—on such an understanding has some evident attractions. Given the public anxiety about wards and disorders in the rich countries in the world, the indirect justification of poverty removal-not for its own sake but for the sake of peace and quiet in the world—provides an argument that appeals to self-interest for helping the needy. It presents an argument for allocating more resources on poverty removal because of its presumed political, rather than moral relevance.

While the temptation to go in that direction is easy to understand, it is a perilous route to take even for a worthy cause. Part of the difficulty lies in the possibility that if wrong, economic reductionism would not only impair our understanding of the world, but would also tend to undermine the declared rationale of the public commitment to remove poverty. This is a particularly serious concern, since poverty and massive inequality are terrible enough in themselves, and deserve priority even if there were no connection whatsoever with violence. Just as virtue is its own reward, poverty is at least its own penalty. This is not to deny that poverty and inequality can-and do-have far reaching consequences with conflict and strife, but these connections have to be examined and investigated with appropriate care and empirical scrutiny, rather than being casually invoked with unreasoned rapidity in support of a 'good cause'.

Destitution can, of course, produce provocation for defying established laws and rules. But it need not give people the initiative, courage, and actual ability to do anything very violent. Destitution can be accompanied not only by economic debility, but also by political helplessness. A starving wretch can be too frail and too dejected to fight and battle, and even to protest and holler. It is thus not surprising that often enough intense and widespread suffering and misery have been accompanied by unusual peace and silence.

Indeed, many famines have occurred without there being much political rebellion or civil strife or intergroup warfare. For example, the famine years in the 1840s in Ireland were among the most peaceful, and there was title attempt by the hungry masses to intervene even as ship after ship sailed down the river Shannon with rich food. Looking elsewhere, my own childhood memories in Calcutta during the Bengal famine of 1943 include the sight of starving people dying in front of sweetshops with various layers of luscious food displayed behind the glass windows, without a single glass being broken, or law or order being disrupted.

SLAT Mock Test - 2 (New Pattern) - Question 45

Directions: Answer the given question based on the following passage:

In 1954, a Bombay economist named A.D. Shroff began a Forum of Free Enterprise, whose ideas on economic development were somewhat at odds with those then influentially articulated by the Planning Commission of the Government of India. Shroff complained against the 'indifference, if not discouragement' with which the state treated entrepreneurs.

At the same time as Shroff, but independently of him, a journalist named Philip Spratt was writing a series of essays in favour of free enterprise. Spratt was a Cambridge communist who was sent by the party in 1920s to foment revolution in the subcontinent. Detected in the act, he spent many years in an Indian jail. The books he read in the prison, and his marriage to an Indian woman afterwards, inspired his steady move rightwards. By the 1950s, he was editing a pro-American weekly from Bangalore, called MysIndia. There he inveighed against the economic policies of the government of India. These, he said, treated the entrepreneur 'as a criminal who has dared to use his brains independently of the state to create wealth and give employment'. The state's chief planner, P.C. Mahalanobis, had surrounded himself with Western leftists and Soviet academicians, who reinforced his belief in 'rigid control by the government over all activities'. The result, said Spratt, would be 'the smothering of free enterprise, a famine of consumer goods, and the tying down of millions of workers to soul-deadening techniques.'

The voices of men like Spratt and Shroff were drowned in the chorus of popular support for a model of heavy industrialization funded and directed by the governments. The 1950s were certainly not propitious times for free marketers in India. But from time to time their ideas were revived. After the rupee was devalued in 1966, there were some moves towards freeing the trade regime, and hopes that the licensing system would also be liberalized. However, after Indira Gandhi split the Congress Party in 1969, her government took its 'left turn', nationalizing a fresh range of industries and returning to economic autarky.
