The judiciary is considered as the guardian and protector of Indian Constitution and supervises the implementation of fundamental rights and duties in the country. In the case of L. Chandra Kumar V. Union of India it has been held that the power of judicial review is a part of basic structure of the Indian Constitution.
The emergence of judicial review gave birth to a new movement which is called Judicial Activism. Judicial Activism refers to a philosophy of judicial decision-making whereby judges allow their personal views about public policy to guide their decisions. The Constitution of India divides the powers of government into three branches i.e. legislature, executive and judiciary and has defined their roles clearly.
Legislature and executive are responsible for making the law of the land and judiciary is responsible for interpreting these laws and also has the power to review the law i.e. whether it is made in consonance with the basic principles of constitution or not. So, it is when the judiciary steps into the shoes of the executive and legislature and embarks on the work of lawmaking rather than interpreting laws, it is deemed to be judicial activism.
Q. The argument presented in the second paragraph can be best described as:

S.S Career Academy answered  •  20 hours ago
The author tells how the emergence of judicial review gave birth to a movement called Judicial Activism and states its definition. He also explains how the Constitution of India divides the powers of government into three branches and has defined their roles clearly. Since, this paragraph is focussed on Judicial Activism, and how the emergence of judicial review caused it, the correct answer is (a).
Incorrect Answers:
(b), (c) and (d) - These are not the reasoning used by the author.

The child-sized skeletal human-looking fossils found on Flores began to be referred to as the remains of a Hobbit when it was discovered that they belonged to fully grown human-like creatures. Standing at just 0.9 meters when alive, the hobbits would have been considerably smaller than modern humans, or even other human cousins that have since gone extinct.
Researchers have found the remains of nine of the skeletons, the bones of which have been found to be approximately 18,000 years old-together the discovery has caused much debate about whether the creatures were a species separate from modern humans, or if they were modern humans that had simply suffered from microcephaly-a condition that leads a person to have a small body and head, and also some degree of retardation.
To help settle the debate the researchers with this new effort undertook a serious examination and analysis of the creatures' teeth. However, research is still going on and the status is not clear.

S.S Career Academy answered  •  20 hours ago
(c) is the main conclusion of the passage as the author has pointed out how more research is needed to ascertain the correct identity of the bones discovered in Flores. He points out at different possibilities such as hobbits, and humans with microcephaly. So, answer choice (c) sums up the main views of the author well.
Incorrect Answers:
(b) is opposed to the main thought of the passage. Statements (a) and (d) have not been discussed anywhere in the passage.

Q. Which of the following can be inferred as a view that the author will most definitely agree with?

Sushil Kumar answered  •  20 hours ago
The correct answer is (b) as the author focuses on how interesting the conflict between the real identity of the child-skeletal bones found in Flores is and how there is no definite answer to it. Option (b) supports this view and hence can be inferred as a view that the author will most definitely agree with.
Incorrect Answers:
Information contained in statements (a) and (d) has neither been mentioned nor supported anywhere in the passage. Statement (c) confirms the identity of the bones discovered, which is not true. So, the author is not likely to agree with any of these statements.

Q. The argument of the author depends on which one of the following assumptions?

Sushil Kumar answered  •  20 hours ago
(a) is an assumption that supports the argument of the author. It is clear from the first line wherein the author states that the child-sized skeletal human-looking fossils found on Flores began to be referred to as the remains of a Hobbit, meaning he believes that there are more species than humans.
So, (a) is the correct answer.
Incorrect Answers:
Assumptions (b) and (d) are not true as the author expresses them nowhere in the passage. Assumption (c) opposes the idea presented by the author in the passage. So, (b), (c) and (d) cannot be assumed.

Q. Which of the following, if true, most weakens the argument presented in the third paragraph?

S.S Career Academy answered  •  yesterday
You are asked to identify the statement which weakens the argument in the third paragraph. In the third paragraph, the author highlights that research to identify whether the remains found in Flores are humans or anything else is still going on, and nothing definite can be said. In answer choice (c), it has been made clear that humans and the child-sized skeletal human-looking fossils found on Flores are different species, which means that the conclusion that the author has drawn from the passage is contradicted. Answer choice (c) weakens the argument based on a similar reasoning.
Incorrect answers:(a), (b) and (d) give information that supports the argument and hence cannot weaken the argument.

Human activities, such as research, innovation and industry, concentrate disproportionately in large cities.
The ten most innovative cities in the United States account for 23% of the national population, but for 48% of its patents and 33% of its gross domestic product. But why has human activity become increasingly concentrated? Here we use data on scientific papers, patents, employment and gross domestic product, for 353 metropolitan areas in the United States, to show that the spatial concentration of productive activities increases with their complexity.
Complex economic activities, such as biotechnology, neurobiology and semiconductors, concentrate disproportionately in a few large cities compared to less-complex activities, such as apparel or paper manufacturing. We use multiple proxies to measure the complexity of activities, finding that complexity explains from 40% to 80% of the variance in urban concentration of occupations, industries, scientific fields and technologies.
Using historical patent data, we show that the spatial concentration of cutting-edge technologies has increased since 1850, suggesting a reinforcing cycle between the increase in the complexity of activities and urbanization.
These findings suggest that the growth of spatial inequality may be connected to the increasing complexity of the economy.
Q. Which of the following can be a reason why using patent data as a measure of complexity may be incorrect?
... more

S.S Career Academy answered  •  yesterday
Options (a) and (b) support the use of patents filed as a parameter to gauge complex activity. Option (c) may be a correct choice but we have no information if one needs to go and file patents at these offices. Option (d) is the correct choice because if most patents are for equipment related to simple tasks, it doesn't add to the complexity to economic activity.

Henry Varnum Poor, editor of American Railroad Journal, drew the important elements of the image of the railroad together in 1851, ―Look at the results of this material progress...the vigor, life, and executive energy that followed in its train, rapidly succeeded by wealth, the refinement and intellectual culture of a high civilization. All this is typified, in a degree, by a locomotive. The combination in its construction of nice art and scientific application of power, its speed surpassing that of our proudest courser, and its immense strength, are all characteristic of our age and tendencies. To us, like the telegraph, it is essential, it constitutes a part of our nature, is a condition of our being what we are.
In the third decade of the nineteenth century, Americans began to define their character in light of the new railroads. They liked the idea that it took special people to foresee and capitalize on the promise of science. Railroad promoters, using the steam engine as a metaphor for what they thought Americans were and what they thought Americans were becoming, frequently discussed parallels between the locomotive and national character, pointing out that both possessed youth, power, speed, single-mindedness, and bright prospects.  
Poor was, of course, promoting acceptance of railroads and enticing his readers to open their pocketbooks. But his metaphors had their dark side. A locomotive was quite unlike anything Americans had ever seen. It was large, mysterious and dangerous; many thought that it was a monster waiting to devour the unwary. There was a suspicion that a country founded upon Jeffersonian agrarian principles had bought a ticket and boarded a train pulled by some iron monster into the dark recesses of an unknown future.
To ease such public apprehensions, promoters, poets, editors, and writers alike adopted the notion that locomotives were really only ―iron horses,‖ an early metaphor that lingered because it made steam technology ordinary and understandable. Iron horse metaphors assuaged fears about inherent defects in the national character, prompting images of a more secure future, and made an alien technology less frightening, and even comforting and congenial.  
Essayist Ralph Waldo Emerson saw the locomotive as an agent of domestic harmony. He observed that ―the locomotive and the steamboat, like enormous shuttles, shoot every day across the thousand various threads of national descent and employment and bind them fast in one web, "adding ―an hourly assimilation goes forward, and there is no danger that local peculiarities and hostilities should be preserved. To us Americans, it seems to have fallen as a political aid. We could not else have held the vast North America together, which we now engage to do"

Puja Manna asked a question

Marriage is necessarily the basis of social organisation and the foundation of important legal rights and obligations. The importance and imperative character of the institution of marriage needs no comment. In Hindu law, marriage is treated as a Samskara or a sacrament. The Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 introduced monogamy as a law of marriage among Hindus by virtue of Section 5 clause (i) which is essentially the voluntary union for life of one man with one woman to the exclusion of all others. It enacts , “neither party must have a spouse living at the time of marriage”. The expression ‘spouse’ here used, means a lawfully married husband or wife. Before a valid marriage can be solemnised, both parties to such marriage must be either single or divorced or a widow or a widower and only then they are competent to enter into a valid marriage. If at the time of performance of the marriage rites and ceremonies, one or other of the parties had a spouse living and the earlier marriage had not already been set aside, the later marriage is no marriage at all. The Supreme Court in Bhaurao Shankar Lokhande v. State of Maharashtra, [AIR 1965 SC 1564 ] held, “Prima facie, the expression ‘whoever marries’ in Section 494 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860 (which defines the offence of bigamy) must mean ‘whoever marries validly’ or ‘whoever marries and whose marriage is a valid one’. If marriage is not valid according to the law applicable to the parties, no question arises of its being void by reason of its taking place during the life of the husband or wife of the person marrying. One of the conditions of a valid marriage under the Hindu Marriage Act , 1955 is that it must be ‘solemnised’. Further, Section 13 (2) of the Act provides for grounds of divorce to wife and states, “A wife may also present a petition for the dissolution of her marriage by a decree of divorce on the ground that in the case of any marriage solemnized before the commencement of this Act, that the husband had married again before such commencement or that any other wife of the husband married before such commencement was alive at the time of the solemnization of the marriage of the petitioner: Provided that in either case the other wife is alive at the time of the presentation of the petition”. 
Q. Which of the following statements correctly expresses the interpretation of the word ‘solemnise’ under Hindu law?

Farha Naaz asked a question

Passage-1:-  In the second week of august 1998, just a few days after the incidents of bombing the US embassies in Nairobi & Dar-er-Salaam, a high powered, brainstorming session was held near Washington DC, to discuss various aspects of terrorism. The meeting was attended by ten of America’s leading experts in various fields such as germ & chemical warfare, public health, disease control & also by the doctor and the law enforcing officers. Being asked to describe the horror of possible bio-attack, one of the experts narrated the following "gloomy" scenario.
A culprit in a crowded business centre or in a busy shopping mall of a town empties a test tube containing some fluid, which in turn creates an unseen cloud of germ of a dreaded disease like anthrax, capable of inflicting a horrible death within 5 days on anyone who inhales it. At first, 500 or son victims felt that they have mild influenza which may recede after a day or two. Then the symptoms return again and their lungs start filling with fluid. They rush to local hospitals for treatment, but the panic stricken people may find that the Medicare services run quickly out of drugs due to excessive demand. But no one would be able to realize that a terrorist attack has occurred. One cannot deny the possibility that the germ involved would be of contagious variety capable of causing an epidemic. The meeting concluded that "such attacks", apart from causing immediate human tragedy, would have dire long term effect on the political & social fabric of a country by way of ending people’s trust on the competence of the government.
The experts also said that the bombs used in Kenya & Tanzania were of the old fashion variety & involved large quantities of high explosives, but new terrorism will prove to be more deadly & probably more "elusive" than hi jacking an aero-plane or a gelignite or previous decades.  According to Bruce Hoffman, an American specialist on political violence, old terrorism generally had a specific manifesto to overthrow a colonial power or the capitalist system and so on. These terrorists were not shy about planting a bomb or hijacking an aircraft and they set some limit to their brutality. Killing so many innocent people might turn their natural supporters off. Political terrorists want a lot of people watching, but not a lot of people dead. Old terrorism sought to change the word while the new sort is often practiced by those who believe that the world has gone beyond redemption, he added.
Hoffman says, “New Terrorism has no long term agenda, but is ruthless in its short term intentions”. It is often just a "cacophonous cry" of protest or an outburst of religious intolerance or a protest against the west in general & the US in particular. Its may be religious fanatics or die-hard opponents of a government and see no reason to show restraint. They are simply intent on inflicting the maximum amount of pain on the victim.
Q.
The phrase, such attacks, as mentioned in the last sentence of second paragraph, refers to
