SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 23 - Question 13

Directions: Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow by choosing the correct/most appropriate options:
The newspaper rule of thumb is that ‘dog-bites-man’ stories are not newsworthy. However, with a nearly 1.5 crores stray dog population (2019 livestock census), and a dubious distinction of being the world’s dog-bite-and-rabies-capital, India’s ‘stray dog menace’ has a steady presence in the media ecosystem, to the point of being anaesthetising. Occasionally, this stupor is broken by the macabre. An infant in a Rajasthan hospital was reportedly taken away by stray dogs, while strays attacked a four-year-old, with fatal results, which were captured by CCTV cameras, in Telangana. Both incidents constitute only a fraction of the many dog attacks. Despite the acknowledgment of the crisis by States, the Centre, the judiciary, municipalities, and non-governmental organizations, the problem festers.
Dogs have a unique relationship with man’s evolutionary history — one of companionship. This poses a moral dilemma of being responsible for their welfare but also confronting the vagaries of their evolution from wolves and their territorial instincts. While by no means a conundrum unique to India, much of the world has drawn the line by de-recognizing the rights of stray animals: if leashed and registered, human custodians are obliged to take care of them. If not, the state — as a last resort — is encumbered to euthanize them, in the interest of public health. The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act and the Animal Birth Control (Dogs) Rules, 2001 (being updated), while aimed at limiting the stray population, do nothing to improve public safety. The proposed draft rules, or the Animal Birth Control Rules, 2022, only put forth procedural changes in sterilization and vaccination, permit only “incurably ill and mortally wounded” dogs to be euthanized, which is what existing rules permit, and make leaders of resident welfare associations responsible for feeding strays in pockets. The PCA and ABC rules acknowledge that unchecked strays must be restrained. However, they do not factor in the magnitude of the problem: that there is nearly one stray for every 100 Indians; that India lacks the infrastructure and mechanism to ensure that the most vulnerable (the poor and their children) are able to access treatment and that expecting dog numbers to reduce on their own with sterilization and vaccination is a pipe dream. India has committed to eliminating rabies by 2030, but without first framing the threat from stray dogs as a public health crisis, India’s poorest will continue to see their right to safe public spaces culled at the altar of callous activism.

Q. Choose the antonym of the word 'Fatal'.

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 23 - Question 13

The word 'Fatal' means Something likely to cause or capable of causing death. (घातक; जिससे अंत में मृत्‍यु हो जाए, जानलेवा)

• Example: A hospital spokesman said she had suffered a fatal heart attack.

Let's look at the meaning of the given options:-
Lethal - Something that can cause death or great damage. (मृत्‍युकारक, घातक, अत्‍यंत हानिकारक)

• Example: Drinking and driving is a lethal combination.

Terminal - Something predicted to lead to death. (मृत्‍यु की ओर ले जाती हुई; लाइलाज, मरणांतक, अंतस्‍थ)

• Example: There is no special arrangement for terminal cancer patients.

Mortal - Something that will result in death. (प्राणघातक, जिसका परिणाम मृत्‍यु हो)

• Example: The police were defending themselves and others against mortal danger.

Beneficial - Something having a good or useful effect. (लाभकारी, हितकर, फ़ायदेमंद)

• Example: He hopes the new drug will prove beneficial to many people.

Pernicious - Something having a very harmful or evil effect. (हानिकारक; घातक; विनाशकारी)

• Example: He had pernicious anemia at the age of 49 years.

Hence, the only possible answer is option 4.

SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 23 - Question 20

Directions: Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow by choosing the correct/most appropriate options:
An aggravating factor, often overlooked, is the shape that inequality takes in different segments _____ our society. It is economic on one plane; on others, it is regional, caste, and religious. Some are spelt out, others understated, and still others assumed. Sociologists have identified nine categories of people who are determined to be socially and/or politically and/or economically excluded. These particularly include Dalits, Adivasis, women, and religious minorities. Recent studies on religious minorities who constitute around 20% of India’s population have traced discrimination relating to them to perceptions that relate to the very origins of thinking that brought about the partition of August 1947. They argue that violence was not merely accidental but integral to the foundation of the nation and that the need for fraternity coexisted with the imperative need for restoring social cohesion in segments of society.
Much blame for the haste displayed by decision-makers has been written about on the basis of the documentation made available subsequently and, at this distance of time, its validity cannot be dismissed altogether. A primary concern of the Constitution-makers related to cohesion and integration of the units of the new Republic formally described as ‘A Union of States’. In the words of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, ‘the inspiration and the stimulus came from above rather than from below and unless the transplanted growth takes a healthy root in the soil, there will be a danger of collapse and chaos.’ This was amplified by V.P. Menon as the integration ‘of the minds of the people’. Over time, uneven development has characterized the States of the Indian Union. Regional and linguistic diversity characterizes them. And so does uneven economic development and progress, resulting in uneven levels of education, employment, social cohesion, and contentment.

Q. Which of the following is/are correct according to the given passage?
A. Religious minorities constitute around twenty percent of India’s population.
B. Five categories of people are determined to be economically excluded.
C. Uneven development has not characterized the States of the Indian Union.

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 23 - Question 20
• The sixth sentence of the first paragraph says "Recent studies on religious minorities who constitute around 20% of India’s population have traced discrimination relating to them to perceptions that relate to the very origins of thinking that brought about the partition of August 1947.''
• From the above sentence, we can say that statement A is correct according to the given passage.​​​
• The fourth sentence of the first paragraph says "Sociologists have identified nine categories of people who are determined to be socially and/or politically and/or economically excluded'' and the fifth sentence of the second paragraph says "Over time, uneven development has characterized the States of the Indian Union''.
• From the above sentence, we can say that statements B and C are incorrect according to the given passage.​​

Hence, the only possible answer is option 1.

SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 23 - Question 21

A passage has been given below. Few words and sentences have been highlighted to help you answer some of the questions. Read the same carefully and answer the questions that follow:
Ideas and actions rarely get wind together to end decades-old social inequities. Visions can become virtuies if they are accompanied by a determination to create an equitable society. Three years ago, Prime Minister Narendra Modi decided to offload the past that was holding back the 1.3 crore citizens of Jammu and Kashmir from realizing their potential. He rolled out the process to build a new and vibrant Union Territory. Jammu and Kashmir, since then, is walking the PM’s talk and has travelled quite a distance to re-arrange priorities of development, initiate deep reforms in governance, curb corruption, and realise the dreams of youth. In this Amrit Kaal, we are the new destination, not just for tourists but for businesses as well.
In 2018-19, only 9,229 projects were completed in a year. This has increased to 50,627 in the financial year 2021-22. Rs 1 lakh crore is being spent to improve road connectivity and build tunnels. Social sector spending has increased by 43.83 per cent and the economic sector by 45.60 per cent in the last three years.
More than 200 public services have been made available online to receive real-time feedback from citizens. Providing houses to people in rural areas, developing roads, putting in place primary health facilities and safe drinking water services, creating more avenues for education, employment, and agriculture, attracting private investment and bridging gaps between government delivery mechanisms and people’s expectations were some of the tasks we completed by building trust between the administration and the people. Structural and institutional changes like ending the 150-year-old Darbar Move brought in another layer of transparency and improvement in governance. It also saved about Rs 400 crore annual expenditure that used to be incurred in shifting logistics from Srinagar to Jammu and back. It has also prevented the loss of at least one working month every year.
Projects worth Rs 58,477 crore under the Prime Minister’s Development Package have picked up pace and direction after impediments and bottlenecks that _________ (a) growth — land acquisition, forest clearances, utility shifting and court cases — were removed. Dreams and aspirations are ________________ (b)of the common man in J&K, which has encouraged us to work harder.

Q. Which of the following tasks has not been completed in order to build trust between the administration and the people?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 23 - Question 21

Refer to the third paragraph- “Providing houses to people in rural areas, developing roads, putting in place primary health facilities and safe drinking water services, creating more avenues for education, employment, and agriculture, attracting private investment and bridging gaps between government delivery mechanisms and people’s expectations were some of the tasks we completed by building trust between the administration and the people. From the above quoted lines we can say that option E is the correct answer.
