Each term comprises a letter series and a number series.

Letter series: C + 19 = V, V + 19 = O.

O + 19 = H

Number series: It is a series of prime numbers skipping one between every term.

Series of prime numbers is 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, ....

So, the given number series is 11, 17, 23, 31.

Hence, the missing term is H31.

SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 3

### What was the day on 26th January, 1950, when the first Republic Day of India was celebrated?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 3
As there is 1 odd day in 1900 years

In 49 years from 1900 to 1949, there are 49 Ã· 4 = 12 leap years and 37 ordinary years. There are (12 Ã— 2 = 24) + 37 = 61 odd days or 5 odd days

From 1st January, 1950 till 26th January, 1950, there are 5 odd days

So, in total there are 0 + 1 + 5 + 5 = 11 odd days or 4 odd days

Hence, From 1st January, 1600 till 26th January, 1950, there are 4 odd days

So 26th January 1950 is Thursday.

SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 4

Similarly, mango falls under the category of fruits.

Hence, option (c) is the correct answer.

SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 6

Directions: In the following question, three out of the four alternatives contain letters and numbers placed in a particular form. Find the one that does not belong to the group.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 6
In the first 3 options, the pattern is

G = 7th position from beginning

T = 7th position from last (taking Z as first letter)

I = 9th position from beginning

R = 9th position from last

C = 3rd position from beginning

X = 3rd position from last

And, the given numbers represent their positions.

But in option (d), we have

J = 10th position from beginning

P = 11th position from last

Therefore, option (d) is the odd one out.

SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 7

In the year 1648, if February had 5 Sundays, then what was the day on February 13, 1750?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 7
Since February had 5 Sundays in 1648, so February 1, 1648 was a Sunday.

So, number of odd days up to February 1, 1748 = 5

Number of odd days up to February 1, 1750 = (2 + 1) = 3

Number of odd days up to February 13, 1750 = 12

So, total number of odd days = 5 + 3 + 12 = 20

So, number of odd days from February 1, 1648 to February 13, 1750 = 6

SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 8

Directions: The following question consists of a pair of numbers that have a certain relationship to each other, followed by four other pairs of numbers given as alternatives. Select the pair in which the numbers are similarly related as in the given pair.

11 : 1210

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 8
Here,

11 : (113 - 112) = 1331 - 121 = 1210

Similarly,

8 : (83 - 82) = 512 - 64 = 448

SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 9

In a certain code language, if MARCH is written as QEVGL, then how will JUNE be written in this language?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 9
M A R C H = Q E V G L

All the letters are moved 4 places forward to get the corresponding letters in the code.

So, JUNE = NYRI

Hence, option a is the right answer.

SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 10

Directions: In the following number series, one of the numbers is wrong in the sense that it does not belong to the series. Find that number.

812, 398, 190, 90, 40, 16

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 10
16 x 2 + 8 = 40

40 x 2 + 10 = 90

The next number should be 90 x 2 + 12 = 192, and not 190.

192 x 2 + 14 = 398

398 x 2 + 16 = 812

Thus, option (3) is correct.

SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 11

SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 13

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.

Principles:

1. A quasi contract is a contract that is created by the court when no such official contract exists between the parties, and there is a dispute with regard to payment for goods or services provided.

2. When one party conducts an activity and its benefit is attained by another party, then also Court can create a quasi Contract.

Facts: A is citizen of India. The local contractor conducts repairs to the house situated at A`s locality. As a result A gets benefited because the surrounding lands belong to A. Here Court creates a Quasi Contract and decides that A has to bear cost of repairs.

Decide.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 13
This is a clear cut case of quasi contract. A gets benefitted because the surrounding lands belong to A. A gets maximum benefit out of the repairs done by the local contractor. Therefore, A must pay for the repairs. This is an example of implied contract (quasi contract) for which A must pay to the contractor.
SLAT Mock Test - 7 (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/them to the given Facts carefully, and select the best option.

Principle: It shall be the duty of the Works Committee to promote measures for securing and preserving amity and good relations between the employer and workmen and, to that end, to comment upon matters of their common interest or concern and endeavour to compose any material difference of opinion in respect of such matters.

Facts: In Punjab, the employees in a hosiery industry usually fight in regard to wages paid and the work assigned to them. Who is responsible to check the matters related to these concerns?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 14
The principle clearly states that Works Committee is responsible to check the matters related to the interests of both employers and employees.
SLAT Mock Test - 7 (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: Where several persons are engaged or concerned in the commission of a criminal act, they may be guilty of different offences by means of that act.

Facts: A attacks Z under such circumstances of grave provocation that his killing of Z would be only culpable homicide not amounting to murder. B, having ill-will towards Z and intending to kill him, and not having been subject to the provocation, assists A in killing Z.

Who is/are responsible for culpable homicide?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 15
Here, though A and B are both engaged in causing Z's death, B is guilty of murder and A is guilty of only culpable homicide which involves the illegal killing of a person either with or without an intention to kill depending upon how a particular jurisdiction has defined the offence.
SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 16

Situation: Mishra Ji lost his child at a metro station. He quickly went to the announcement room to announce an award of Rs. 1,00,000 to anyone who finds his 5-year-old child. Just as he finished announcing, Rakshit came in the announcement room with a child whom he had found crying alone; he had come to make the announcement to find the child's father. This happened to be Mishra Ji's child and Rakshit handed him over to Mishra Ji.

Is Rakshit entitled to the reward?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 16
He did not know about the announcement, which indicates that the offer had not been communicated to him. Therefore, he cannot claim the reward money.
SLAT Mock Test - 7 (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: Abettor is a person who abets, either the commission of an offence, or the commission of an act which would be an offence, if committed by a person capable by law of commitÂ­ting an offence with the same intention or knowledge as that of the abettor. It is not essential under this offence that the offence must be committed.

Facts: A, with a guilty intention, abets a child to commit an act which would be an offence, if committed by a person capable by law of committing an offence, and having the same intention as A.

Who is/are guilty of the offence?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 17
Here, A, whether the act be committed or not, is guilty of abetting an offence. As the principle clearly states that abettment is an offence, which if committed by a person capable by law of committing an offence with the same intention or knowledge as that of the abettor, then the abettor is liable for the offence.
SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 18

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

Facts: X, who is usually of sound mind, but occasionally of unsound mind, enters into a contract with Y when he (X) is of unsound mind. Y came to know about this fact afterwards and now wants to file a suit against X.

Decide.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 18
Section 12 in The Indian Contract Act, 1872

12. What is a sound mind for the purposes of contracting.â€”A person is said to be of sound mind for the purpose of making a contract, if, at the time when he makes it, he is capable of understanding it and of forming a rational judgment as to its effect upon his interests. â€”A person is said to be of sound mind for the purpose of making a contract, if, at the time when he makes it, he is capable of understanding it and of forming a rational judgment as to its effect upon his interests." A person who is usually of unsound mind, but occasionally of sound mind, may make a contract when he is of sound mind. A person who is usually of sound mind, but occasionally of unsound mind, may not make a contract when he is of unsound mind.

X cannot enter into contract because he is of unsound mind when he entered into contract. Mr. X can enter into contract but the burden is on the other party to prove that he was of unsound mind at the time of contract.

SLAT Mock Test - 7 (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: No communication made in good faith is an offence by reason of any harm to the person to whom it is made, if it is made for the benefit of that person.

Who is responsible for the death of patient?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 19
A has committed no offence and is not responsible for the patient's death, though he knew it to be likely that the communication might cause the patient's death. Moreover, he had no intention to harm the patient and cause his death.
SLAT Mock Test - 7 (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.

Principles:

1. The State shall not discriminate against any citizen on grounds only of religion, race, caste, sex, place of birth or any of them.

2. Nothing in the above provision shall prevent the State from making any special provision for women and children.

Facts: Reena (female) and Manoj are both working in the Central Excise department for the Government of India. Both are on the same rank - Regional Manager. The State introduced a law wherein the females would get a maternity allowance for 6 months after their child is born. This law was challenged by Manoj on the ground of being violative of his fundamental rights.

Decide.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 20
Option 3 is the best one. We might think that the situation discriminates between men and women, but it does not since nothing prevents the State from introducing special provisions for the upliftment of women, in this case working mothers.
SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 21

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

Principle: An offer will be considered to be a valid offer only if a person intends for it to result in a binding legal obligation.

Facts: Amit is Naina's younger brother, and one day, on returning home, exhausted from his cricket tournament, asks his sister to bring him glucose water from the kitchen. She refuses to do so. Then, he says, If you bring me glucose water, I'll become your slave for a whole week. She brings him the water and the next day, demands that he clean the garden, take the dog out for a walk, cook, wash the car and take her out for shopping. Amit clearly refuses to do so. Angered by this, Naina decides to file a suit against her brother, claiming that he was her slave.

Will she succeed?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 21
The requirement of intention to create legal relations in contract law is aimed at shifting out cases which are not really appropriate for court action. Not every agreement leads to a binding contract which can be enforced through the courts. The statement given by Amit to his sister does not show his intention to create a legal relationship. He said this very casually and not with an intention to create a legal obligation. It seems to be of a moral nature. Therefore, no contract comes into being.
SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 22

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

Principle: Article 20(1) provides that all persons shall have protection against the application of ex-post facto laws.

Facts: Mr. Sham, a Chartered Accountant, did not file wealth tax returns for years 1979 to 1984, but with amendment in the year 1984, filing of return had been made compulsory. Mr. Sham received a notice for the filing of the returns and penalty worth Rs. 20,00,000 was imposed. Accordingly, he filed the returns for the last 5 years on 31st March, 1986. But he refused to pay the fine, as it was a post facto law. And, he could not be made liable under it to pay the fine. But, the department gave contention that it was a continuing offence, hence Sham was liable to pay the fine.

Decide.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 22
Sham will succeed because of the protection against the application of ex-post facto laws. According to Article 20, no one can be awarded punishment which is more than what the law of the land prescribes at that time. This legal axiom is based on the principle that no criminal law can be made retrospective, that is, for an act to become an offence, the essential condition is that it should have been an offence legally at the time of committing it.
SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 23

Directions: These question comprise of two statement one is labeled as Principle and the other as Fact. Carefully read the Principle and apply it on the Fact and choose the best option.

Principle: An owner of a company is responsible for the act performed by its employees during office hours.

Fact: Sheela is the employee of 'SAMSUNG'. Because of her ill health, she was on leave, on Monday. At afternoon while walking in the street, she met with an accident and got injured by a scooter. She claimed compensation from her company. Whether Samsung is liable to compensate Sheela?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 23
SAMSUNG is not responsible for paying her the compensation because she was on leave that day. The company will only be liable to pay the compensation if she gets injured while working in the office.

The knowledge society has two very important components driven by societal transformation and wealth generation. The societal transformation is in respect of education, healthcare, agriculture and governance. These will lead to employment generation, high productivity and rural prosperity.

The task of wealth generation for the nation has to be woven around national competencies. The TIFAC task team has identified core areas that will spearhead our march towards becoming a knowledge society. The areas are: information technology, biotechnology, space technology, weather forecasting, disaster management, telemedicine and tele-education, technologies utilizing traditional knowledge, service sector and infotainment which is the emerging area resulting from convergence of information and entertainment. These core technologies, fortunately, can be interwoven by IT, a sector that took off only due to the enterprising spirit of the young.

Thus there are multiple technologies and appropriate management structures that have to work together to generate a knowledge society. With India carving a niche for itself in information technology, the country is uniquely placed to fully capitalize on the opportunity to quickly transform itself into a knowledge society. The methodology of wealth generation in these core areas and to be able to meet an export target set at \$50 billion by the year 2008, especially through the IT sector, is a subject that is currently under discussion. Also being discussed is how best to simultaneously develop the capability to generate information technology products worth \$30 billion domestically to pump in for societal transformation. I am glad that the Planning Commission has taken a lead in generating a roadmap for transforming India into a knowledge society. I had the opportunity to be the Chairman of the Steering Committee set up for this task.

Evolving suitable policy and administrative procedures, changes in regulatory methods, identification of partners and, most important, creation of young and dynamic leaders are the components that have to be put in place. In order to generate wealth, which is the second component for establishing a knowledge society, it is essential that simultaneously a citizen-centric approach to shaping of business policy, user-driven technology generation and intensified industryâ€“labâ€“academia linkages have also to be established.

Q. Why does the author think that generating wealth must be woven around national competencies?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 37
The correct option is 4. The text states 'The TIFAC task team has identified core areas that will spearhead our march towards becoming a knowledge society'. From this, it can be inferred that the TIFAC team views these technologies to transform India into a knowledge society and as stated previously wealth generation is a component of a knowledge society.

SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 38

The knowledge society has two very important components driven by societal transformation and wealth generation. The societal transformation is in respect of education, healthcare, agriculture and governance. These will lead to employment generation, high productivity and rural prosperity.

SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 39

Over the past few years, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has reached a crossroads. Taking into account the increasing number of environmental cases across the country and the involvement of multi-disciplinary issues in such cases, the Government of India enacted the National Green Tribunal (NGT) Act in 2010 for the effective and expeditious disposal of cases relating to environmental protection, conservation of forests and other natural resources.

To address complex environmental cases, Section 4 of the NGT Act prescribes that the tribunal shall consist of a full-time chairperson and at least 10, but not exceeding 20 judicial and expert members at all times.

Sections 14, 15 and 16 of the Act state that the tribunal shall:

- Have the jurisdiction over all civil cases where a substantial question relating to environment is involved,

- Provide relief and compensation to the victims of pollution and other environmental damage arising under the environmental acts, and

- Hear appeal from any person aggrieved by any order or decision related to environmental matters.

A less obvious but critical aspect of the NGT's efficient functioning, which can significantly impact the decision-making process and access to justice, concerns the administrative support supplied by the Government of India. However, from the very beginning, the Government of India has not been enthusiastic to see NGT function as an effective body.

As noted earlier, Section 4 of the NGT Act, 2010, prescribes that the tribunal shall consist of a full time chairperson and not less than 10 judicial and 10 expert members but subject to maximum of twenty full-time judicial and expert members.

In the last nine years, the NGT has never got the minimum strength of ten judicial and ten expert members to address the increasing number of environmental litigations across the country. Currently (2019), with only four judicial and two expert members, the NGT appears paralysed. With no indication of appointment of more judicial and expert members from the MoEF&CC, the four zonal benches have been completely shut over the past one year.

Hearing of the zonal bench litigation is nowadays taking place via video-conference and that too only for one to two hours. Many lawyers practicing in the NGT have expressed their discomfort with the video conference hearing which they feel has put enormous cost and burden on their clients. Hearings are adjourned or listed in an unfashionable manner, without giving sufficient time to lawyers and clients to present their matter. Very often, video conference hearing gets cancelled at the last minute which they come to know after they arrive at the zonal bench investing their valuable time and resources. Lawyers also complain that they hardly get a chance to mention any new matter via video-conference hearing. The great majority of cases are not resolved within the stipulated time-period of six months.

Q. What has been the general tone of the author of this passage?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 40
The correct answer is (4). The author's tone has been critical throughout the passage. The author has been critical of the government's lack of initiative with regard to the proper and effective functioning of the NGT due to which the Tribunal is in an abysmal state, owing to primarily the lack of administrative will of the Government.
SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 41

Wetlands are indeed the vital link between water and land. It is the collective term for marshes, swamps, and bogs, found along the edges of streams, rivers, lakes and coastlines. Wetlands can be found in nearly every country and climatic zone. Indeed, wetlands are found from the Tundra to the Tropics and on every continent. They are so varied. Some are wet all the time. Some wetlands are large and some are very small. Many have been altered by human activities such as farming, building of roads, dams and towns. Wetlands are regarded wastelands sources of mosquitoes, flies, snakes and diseases. People had negative views about them and they eliminated them. Original wetlands have been destroyed; some of them have been converted into farmland, some others filled by industrial wastes.

Wetlands vary widely because of topography, climate, hydrology, water chemistry and vegetation. Wetlands are the coastal mangrove forests, lake marshes and seasonally flooded lands along river courses. Palm swamps, sea grass beds, salt flats, and coral reefs are common wetlands. They are of two types: tidal wetlands and non-tidal (inland) wetlands. Tidal wetlands are found along the Atlantic, Pacific, Alaskan and Gulf Coasts. The salt water and fluctuating water levels create a difficult environment. Some plants have adapted to the environment of saline conditions. Inland wetlands are common in the margins of lakes and rivers. They include wet meadows dominated by herbaceous plants, swamps and shrubs and tall trees. The prolonged presence of water favours the growth of specially adapted plants.

States and tribes play a critical role in the protection and management of wetlands. With the growth of education, people have started understanding ecological processes and their attitudes towards wetlands have changed. They have recognised the ecological significance of the wetlands, which are a source of valuable natural wealth. They help regulate water levels within watersheds; reduce flood and storm damages; and provide fish and wildlife habitat. They support hunting, fishing and other recreational activities.

Wetlands are the most productive ecosystems in the world. They have been described as biological supermarkets as they provide great volumes of food and attract many animal species. A variety of insects, amphibians, reptiles, birds, fish and mammals are found in these wetlands. Many species of birds, animals, rely on wetlands for food, water and shelter. The microbes, insects and wildlife are part of global cycles for water, nitrogen, and sulphur. They store carbon within their plant communities, and thus, help to moderate climate conditions.

Q. According to the passage, which of the following reasons are not compelling enough for disappearance of wetlands?

1. The pressure of overpopulation leading to the development of human habitat

2. Over-exploitation of wetlands

3. The negative attitude of the common masses

4. The industrial policies of the states

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 7 (New Pattern) - Question 41
Only statement 3, is compelling enough for the disappearance of wetlands: 'People had negative views about them and they eliminated them.' Statement 2 is not a reason. Statements 1 and 4 are not compelling. They could be helped with the right attitude of all concerned.

The knowledge society has two very important components driven by societal transformation and wealth generation. The societal transformation is in respect of education, healthcare, agriculture and governance. These will lead to employment generation, high productivity and rural prosperity.

The task of wealth generation for the nation has to be woven around national competencies. The TIFAC task team has identified core areas that will spearhead our march towards becoming a knowledge society. The areas are: information technology, biotechnology, space technology, weather forecasting, disaster management, telemedicine and tele-education, technologies utilizing traditional knowledge, service sector and infotainment which is the emerging area resulting from convergence of information and entertainment. These core technologies, fortunately, can be interwoven by IT, a sector that took off only due to the enterprising spirit of the young.

Thus there are multiple technologies and appropriate management structures that have to work together to generate a knowledge society. With India carving a niche for itself in information technology, the country is uniquely placed to fully capitalize on the opportunity to quickly transform itself into a knowledge society. The methodology of wealth generation in these core areas and to be able to meet an export target set at \$50 billion by the year 2008, especially through the IT sector, is a subject that is currently under discussion. Also being discussed is how best to simultaneously develop the capability to generate information technology products worth \$30 billion domestically to pump in for societal transformation. I am glad that the Planning Commission has taken a lead in generating a roadmap for transforming India into a knowledge society. I had the opportunity to be the Chairman of the Steering Committee set up for this task.

Evolving suitable policy and administrative procedures, changes in regulatory methods, identification of partners and, most important, creation of young and dynamic leaders are the components that have to be put in place. In order to generate wealth, which is the second component for establishing a knowledge society, it is essential that simultaneously a citizen-centric approach to shaping of business policy, user-driven technology generation and intensified industryâ€“labâ€“academia linkages have also to be established.
