Earlier, people used to work in agriculture fields for whole day and they get dirty. while returning home they used to pray to God from outside of the temple. This thing passed on to their next generation as people working in fields are not allowed to enter the temple as their forefather were used to worship from outside. In this way a prejudice mind set of upper castes generation prevented the l... moreower castes from entering the temples as they were untouchable according to them. Later on, they also put restrictions on lower caste people from take water from anywhere, entering the hut and sit with upper castes child in schools. so in this way option C is correct.
Detection of Higgs boson particles is important for two reasons. One, it was the last hold-out particle remaining hidden during the quest to check the accuracy of the Standard Model of Physics. This meant its discovery would validate more than a generation of scientific publication. Two, the Higgs is the particle which gives other particles their mass, making it both centrally important and seemin... moregly magical. We tend to think of mass as an intrinsic property of all things, yet physicists believe that without the Higgs boson, mass fundamentally doesn’t exist. So answer is A.

A geostationary orbit (or Geostationary Earth Orbit - GEO) is a geosynchronous orbit directly above the Earth's equator (0° latitude), with a period equal to the Earth's rotational period and an orbital eccentricity of approximately zero. An object in a geostationary orbit appears motionless, at a fixed position in the sky, to ground observers. Communications satellites and weather satellites are often given geostationary orbits, so that the satellite antennas that communicate with them do not have to move to track them, but can be pointed permanently at the position in the sky where they stay. Due to the constant 0° latitude and circularity of geostationary orbits, satellites in GEO differ in location by longitude only. A geostationary orbit can only be achieved at an altitude very close to 35,786 km (22,236 mi), and directly above the equator.
As per NASA, over the last 50 years, Aral Sea has shrunk by about 75% of its original size mainly because of water diversion for agricultural usages in surrounding areas. Also from a depth of 68 meters in the 1960s, today it stands at less than 10 meters. In Lake Baikal, water level has gone below the critical mark of 456m eleven times since 1962. Thus, while Aral Sea has dried up immensely, Lake Baikal shows more of a fluctuating regime and shrinkage is not comparable to that of Aral Sea.
As per United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) website - "dynamics of land, climate and biodiversity are intimately connected, the UNCCD collaborates closely with the other two Rio Conventions; the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), to meet these complex challenges with an integrated approach and the best possible use of natural resources." Rest of the two are also associated with biodiveresity.

The Government of India Act of 1919 was enacted to satisfy the people of India to some extent. The salient features of the Act were as follows : (a) Preamble: The Act provided for a Preamble that laid down the basic principles and policies upon which it was based. According to it the policy of the British Parliament was – (i) to provide for the increasing association of Indians in every branch of Indian administration, (ii) to develop self governing institutions with a view to the progressive realisation of responsible government in British India as an integral part of the empire; (iii) accordingly, the Preamble suggested for a decentralised unitary form of government. The Act divided the functions of government in two categories: central and provincial. The provincial subjects were further subdivided into transferred and reserved. Thus, in the provinces a new form of government, dyarchy, was introduced. Dyarchy means dual set of governments, e.g. accountable and nonaccountable. In the transferred subjects the Governors were to be assisted by the ministers responsible to the legislature while in the reserved subjects the Governors were to be advised by the councillors who were not accountable to the legislature.
Justification: Statement 1: Leprosy is a chronic infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium leprae bacteria. It usually affects the skin and peripheral nerves, but has a wide range of clinical manifestations.
Statement 2: The National Leprosy Eradication Programme is being continued with Govt. of India funds from January 2005 onwards. Additional support for the programme is continued to be received from the WHO and ILEP organizations. MDT is to be supplied free of cost as of now by NOVARTIS through WHO.
Pair 2 is incorrectly matched: Dhauli Ganga and Vishnu Ganga: Joshi math
Pair 4 is incorrectly matched: Alaknanda and Pindar: Karnaprayag
The Ganga System
The Ganga is the most important river of India both from the point of view of its basin and cultural signiﬁcance. It rises in the Gangotri glacier near Gaumukh (3,900 m) in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand.
Here, it is known as the Bhagirathi. It cuts through the Central and the Lesser Himalayas in narrow gorges. At Devprayag, the Bhagirathi meets the Alaknanda; hereafter, it is known as the Ganga.
The Alaknanda has its source in the Satopanth glacier above Badrinath. The Alaknanda consists of the Dhauli and the Vishnu Ganga which meet at Joshimath or Vishnu Prayag.
The other tributaries of Alaknanda such as the Pindar joins it at Karna Prayag while Mandakini or Kali Ganga meets it at Rudra Prayag. The Ganga enters the plains at Haridwar. From here, it ﬂows ﬁrst to the south, then to the south-east and east before splitting into two distributaries, namely the Bhagirathi and the Padma.
Statement 1 is incorrect: Prime Minister is not always the Leader of the Lok Sabha.
Under the Rules of the Lok Sabha, the ‘Leader of the House’ means the Prime Minister, if he is a member of the Lok Sabha, or a minister who is a member of the Lok Sabha and is nominated by the Prime Minister to function as the Leader of the House.
There is also a ‘Leader of the House’ in the Rajya Sabha. He is a minister and a member of the Rajya Sabha and is nominated by the Prime Minister to function as such.
The Leader of the House in either House is an important functionary and exercises direct inﬂuence on the conduct of business. He can also nominate a deputy leader of the House. The same functionary in USA is known as the ‘majority leader’.
Chairman of Rajya Sabha
The presiding ofﬁcer of the Rajya Sabha is known as the Chairman. The Vice-President of India is the ex-ofﬁcio Chairman of the Rajya Sabha.
During any period when the Vice-President acts as President or discharges the functions of the President, he does not perform the duties of the ofﬁce of the Chairman of Rajya Sabha.
