Question 55
Directions (Q. Nos. 55-84): Study the passage below and answer the questions that follow each passage.                                                               PASSAGE – I Twenty-first-century readers can be broadly divided into two categories: those who read e-books (in an electronic, digital format) and those like me who prefer to curl up with the original printed version. And so what if the world’s largest online retailer Amazon announced that it was selling 105 e-books for every 100 print books?  Amazon also announced that sales of print books were going up. Going to bed with a paperback or hardcover may be old-fashioned, but you can fall asleep while reading without worrying about the battery life on the e-reader. “As we get older, we get honester,” goes the first line of Yevgeny Yevtushenko’s 1956 Russian Poem Zima Junction. As we get older, we also get more sleepless. And for those who like to read, you forget the problems that keep you awake and takes you away to a different world until you fall asleep.Even the most sophisticated e-reader is not as user-friendly as a paperback or a hardcover that you can carry in all kinds of weather (from snowstorms to tsunamis) and wherever you go (from the office, the park and the zoo, to the hospital or even the metro that has just started rolling in India’s pensioner’s paradise-turned-Silicon Plateau). You can even take a book to war. A copy of Three Men in a Boat (one of the funniest books in English literature, first published in 1889) was found in the knapsack of a British soldier who was killed at Spion Kop during the Boer War of 1900. Watch a telecast of any cricket match anywhere in the world and the camera invariably zooms in on that one male or female spectator who is reading a printed book, with the cameraman voyeuristically trying to give the viewers a glimpse of the cover and title. May be, one day, someone will publish a book titled ‘What to read at the match!’ In the very first summer after World War-II ended and cricket resumed in England, the poet-turned-sports commentator John Arlott wrote a book. ‘Off for the cricket’, which perhaps explains why Arlott was called the voice of summer. Books remain the ideal gift for all occasions and festivals. I have forgotten much of what they taught me at schools, but I remember the books presented  to me at annual prize distribution functions.Questions Which of the following statements could be inferred from the passage?  
A
Sales of books is increasing. Although sales of print books is declining.
B
E-books are surely going to phase out print books in the not-too-distant future.
C
Sale of e-books is higher than the sale of print versions.
D
All of these
Question 56
The author believes that books make the ideal gifts because  
A
they are inexpensive and affordable.
B
they could be presented on all occasions including festivals.
C
books remain with you forever even though memories may fade away with time.
D
they could be on a myriad of topics.
Question 57

A
2 only
B
2 and 3
C
3 only
D
1, 2 and 3
Question 58

B
2 and 3
C
1 and 2
D
1, 2 and 3
Question 59
                                                           PASSAGE – IIThe State-run Aarey shops known for selling its patent milk drink Energee and Lassi now don a new look. The pale yellow, light pink and pista green Energee bottles have been displaced by Pepsi’s bright pink, fluorescent yellow and sparkly blue beverages. Pepsi’s recently launched Duke’s sodas are attractively packaged and are profitable, say stall-owners. Shops and stalls seem to be pushing Duke’s. PepsiCo is giving them a 25 per cent profit as trade margin for a bottle, say retailers, largely from the Kutchi and Gujarati communities. In fact, Maharashtra was the first to see the launch of Pepsi’s flavoured Duke’s soda. The company expects to have an all-India roll-out in the next few months. Duke’s is available in four flavours – Ice Cream Soda, Raspberry, Masala Soda and Gingerade. It is available in 200 ml retro glass bottles priced at Rs. 10 and in 500 ml PET bottles for Rs. 25. The cola-major plans to launch the soda in other Western States in the second phase of the roll-out, and eventually the rest of the country would be covered in the third phase, senior company officials said. “We have been flooded with positive responses from customers for re-launching this product. We have eight stock-keeping units of this product which consist of 200 ml and 500 ml bottles. We have already released seven stock-keeping units,” said Pepsi’s Executive Director (West Marketing Unit). “We will scale-up the supply in the coming months as per the response,” he said, referring to the key performing indicators that they have been monitoring over the last few weeks. PepsiCo did some research and found this product “relevant” to consumers and therefore re-launched it, he said. They also decided to retain the packaging and the retro look of the bottles. “Since Duke’s is a heritage brand, we wanted consumers to associate with the old, much-loved product. There are some local brands that are producing similar Raspberry drinks but we have our own product lovers,” he said. Commenting on the discounts given to retailers, he says that they are on a par with what they offer for their other beverages. But a shop owner at Hughes Road, an arterial road in South Mumbai, explained: “We are getting close to Rs. 6 per bottle so why not push the sales of this product over other products.” Getting defensive about the displacement of Energee bottles, another Aarey stall attendant said, “It’s not that we are trying to push Energee bottles to the back of the rack. If we are getting more profit on these sodas then why not place them prominently. Also, the colours are really attractive so consumers definitely stop and ask.”Question The State-run Aarey shops are looking different these days because  
A
the shop-keepers have painted their shops with bright colours.
B
PepsiCo has invested in giving the shops a bright new look.
C
of the brightly coloured bottles of Duke’s sodas stacked in them.
D
of the bright-coloured clothes being worn by the shop-keepers.
Question 60
It can be inferred from the passage that  
A
Pepsi’s strategy is aimed at taking over the State-run Aarey shops.
B
retailers are favourably inclined towards pushing sales of Duke’s sodas due to the higher margins that they stand to earn.
C
Duke’s sodas are mostly liked by Kutchi and Gujarati communities.
D
All of these
Question 61
“PepsiCo decided to retain the packaging and retro look of the bottles” because  
A
consumers demanded it.
B
it was part of the agreement between Pepsi and Duke’s.
C
shop owners felt that consumers would not buy if the look changed.
D
None of these
Question 62
It is implied in the passage that  
A
PepsiCo plans to have a phased launch of Duke’s sodas all over India in the next few months.
B
Retailers tend to lose interest in a brand once it gets old.
C
Duke’s is a leading producer of ice-creams and sodas.
D
Pepsi and Duke’s are fighting each other for shelf-space in soda vending shops.
Question 63
                                                            PASSAGE – III It’s a taste of things to come. As many as 30 foreign food chains are queuing up to enter India. Many of these are Asian restaurateurs, which operate small format chains. “Thirty-odd food chains are foraying into India as franchises. These are mostly pizza and yogurt chains, quick service restaurants and food-on-the-move concepts,” says the President, Franchise India. Among those entering are Loon Tao, Berrylite, Shawarma Xpress, Ci Gusta, Kenny Roger Roasters and Sarpino’s Pizzeria – most of whom are salivating at the prospect of feeding a growing middle class. Take Ci Gusta, an Italian fast food chain for ice-creams, gelato and pastries, which will be entering India by mid next year enthused by the country’s huge population. “It’s a young country with increasing disposable income and here lies our opportunity,” says Head (International Business Development), Ci Gusta.    “We are looking at niche food segment opportunities, our USP being the Italian Flavour,” he says. The food chain already has a presence in Italy, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Dubai. West Asian food chain Shawarma Xpress, with its specialty in meat, variety of breads and multiple sauce derivatives, too is queuing up to take a bite out of the Indian pie. “We are currently in Bahrain, Eastern Region of Saudi Arabia and The Kingdom of Qatar,” says the head of operations, Shawarma Xpress. Using the franchise route, the firm is looking to launch 100 restaurants here over a ten year period. Mall outlets, restaurants and drive-through types are the formats that it is eying. Sri Lanka-based Loon Tao, which ranks among the top five restaurants in the island nation, is also all set to expand in India via franchising. The brand plans to open its first franchise location in Chandigarh and extend its footprint to Tier-I cities like Chennai, Mumbai, Pune, Goa, Kolkata, and Bangalore (Bengluru) as well. “We are targeting middle and elite classes, offering fine dining format for Chinese cuisine”, says its MD and CEO. Berrylite Singapore plans to invest as much as $200,000 in India, setting up its yogurt chains by next summer. “We will expand in India through a master franchise model. The brand has a target to launch about 150 stores in five years”, says the President and CEO (Berrylite). The company is offering kiosks, food courts and cafe formats in India, its USP being 100 per cent fat-free yogurts with a wide selection of fruit toppings. “We are targeting the young and the trendy who are conscious of their lifestyles”, he adds. According to the President, Franchise India, these food chains are entering into India using the franchise route given the chaos over FDI in retail. “Foreign brands are apprehensive because of this whole agitation against the FDI in retail. Therefore, mostly they are coming through the franchise route rather than investing capital. For instance, a major South African food chain dropped out of the agreement due to the opposition to FDI in multi-brand,” adds he. In India on an average, an individual eats out once in two weeks. In Jakarta this figure is once per day.Question It can be inferred from the passage that  
A
Jakarta is a bigger market than India for foreign food chains.
B
foreign food chains see great business potential in India.
C
all the foreign food chains entering into India would tap only Tier-I cities such as Chandigarh, Chennai, Mumbai, Bangalore and Kolkata.
D
All of these
Question 64
It is implied in the passage that  
A
thirty Asian fast food chains are queuing up to enter India.
B
despite opposition to FDI in retail, several foreign food chains are exploring alternative means to set up shop in India.
C
there are no indigenous establishments setting up restaurant businesses in India.
D
Indians have a craving for foreign foods.
Question 65
Which of the following is not true?  
A
Shawarma Express is using the franchise route to launch 100 restaurants in India next year.
B
Foreign chains offering a variety of foods are going to set up shop in India.
C
Many Asian restaurateurs are in the queue to enter India.
D
The Indian middle-class consumer is a prime target for foreign food chains.
Question 66
Some of the formats being adopted by different foreign food chains entering into India are 1. master franchise model. 2. malls, restaurants and drive-throughs. 3. kiosks, food courts and cafes.  
A
1 and 2
B
1 and 3
C
1 only
D
1, 2 and 3
Question 67
                                                                               PASSAGE – IV The Eiffel Tower could be transformed into the world’s largest tree if a project to cover the iconic structure’s 327-metre height with plants comes to fruition, Le Figaro newspaper reported recently. Engineering group Ginger, specialized in ‘green’ architecture, has spent two years working on the C 72-million project that would see 600,000 plants attached to the tower, the French daily reported. Architects and engineers have already built a prototype several metres tall to assess the effect of the additional 378 tonnes weight on the structure. The results of the tests are expected to be known in December. Seedlings would then be cultivated until June 2012, which would be placed on the structure until January 2013. The plants would then grow until January 2014 and be left there until their removal in July 2016. The plants would be placed in bags of soil hanging from hemp ropes attached to the tower’s steel structure. Twelve tones of rubber piping would irrigate the vegetation. The project would produce 84.2 tonnes of carbon dioxide but the plants would absorb 87.8 tonnes, rendering the plan “carbon negative”.Question What is implied by the term “carbon negative” as used in the passage?  
A
The negative effects of carbon dioxide gas.
B
Loss of carbon from the steel in the tower’s structure due to hanging of vegetation on it.
C
Quantity of carbon dioxide emissions being less than the quantity absorbed.
D
None of these
Question 68
What is the proposed plan with respect to Eiffel Tower?  
A
To transform it into a 327-metre tree.
B
To cover it with fruit laden plants.
C
To paint it leafy green.
D
To cover the structure with plants.
Question 69
For how many years are a set of the same plants expected to cover the tower?  
A
About four years.
B
Six years.
C
Until the plants die.
D
Not given in passage.
Question 70
How would the plants be watered on the tower?  
A
By helicopter.
B
By spraying with fire-engines.
C
By naturally occurring rain.
D
Through pipes to be installed on the tower.
Question 71
                                                                 PASSAGE – V Mysterious stone carvings made thousands of years ago and uncovered recently in an excavation underneath Jerusalem have archaeologists stumped. Israeli diggers who uncovered a complex of rooms carved into the bedrock in the oldest section of the city recently found the markings – three “V” shapes cut next to each other into the limestone floor of one of the rooms, about 5 cm deep and 50 cm long. There were no finds to offer any clues to the identity of who made them or for what purpose. The archaeologists in charge of the dig know so little that they have been unable even to posit a theory, said one of the two directors of the dig. “The markings are very strange, and very intriguing I’ve never seen anything like them,” he said. The shapes were found in a dig known as the City of David, a politically sensitive excavation conducted by Israeli government archaeologists and funded by a nationalist Jewish group under the Palestinian neighbourhood of Silwan in east Jerusalem. The rooms were unearthed as part of the excavation of fortification around the ancient city’s only natural water source, the Gihon spring. It is possible, the dig’s archaeologists say, that when the markings were made at least 2,800 years ago, the shapes might have accommodated some kind of wooden structure that stood inside them, or they might have served some other purpose on their own. They might have had a ritual function or one that was entirely mundane. Archaeologists faced with a curious artifact can usually at least venture a guess about its nature. In this case, no one, including outside experts and the dig’s co-director, archaeologists with decades of experience between them, has any idea. There appears to be at least one other ancient marking of the same type at the site. A century-old map of an expedition led by the British explorer Montague Parker, who searched for the lost treasures of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem between 1909 and 1911, includes the shape of a “V” drawn in an underground channel not far away. Modern archaeologists haven’t excavated that area yet. Ceramic shards found in the rooms indicate they were last used around 800 B.C., with Jerusalem under the rule of Judean kings, the dig’s archaeologists say. At around that time, the rooms appear to have been filled with rubble to support the construction of a defensive wall.Question What is the effect that the recently uncovered ancient stone carvings in Jerusalem have had on archaeologists?  
A
No special effect
B
One of disbelief
C
Left them perplexed
D
None of these
Question 72
What might have been the purpose for which the markings were made? 1. To support some wooden structure. 2. To be part of a ritual. 3. To intrigue unexpected visitors to the room.  
A
1 only
B
1 and 2
C
3 only
D

C
Israeli government archaeologists.
D
Palestinian neighbours.
Question 74

B
1 and 2
C

                                                           PASSAGE – VI Teaching today, to me, doesn’t exude the same vibrant memories that it used to, maybe even a decade ago. My interest in this profession was kindled from an early age with the conversations between my father, a professor, and his students. He was a strict disciplinarian admired and revered by his students. I used to stealthily listen from behind the curtains, the conversation between the professor and his students. Sometimes, it ranged from a casual hello to permission for non-submission of assignments or an earnest plea of forgiveness for mistakes committed in the classroom or issues related to career growth. Whatever the subject, the aura of respect and love that emanated from the mere presence of their professor amid them intrigued me, and kindled the spirit in me too to take up teaching as a profession. During Diwali, students used to knock gently at our door with a box laden with goodies and in a trembling voice ask us whether the professor was at home. He was a stickler for values and one among them was a complete no-no to gifts from students. He used to take a small piece of murukku to appease them and then tell them gently and forcefully not to bring home anything except their wishes. At railway stations and banks, shopping centres and markets, he used to be greeted with love and affection. Some people used to bring their newly-wedded wives, come in at times during quiet evenings to share their success stories or simply drop in to say ‘hello’. Another picture still etched in my mind is the discussion of question papers enthusiastically after the exams. The students used to follow him right from the college to the quarters where we used to stay. I used to be aghast at their verve and excitement to get to know the corrections and do better next time. That was perhaps in the early 1980s. I pictured all this and more to happen to me too when I took up this profession as a lecturer. But every time an examination gets over now I hardly get to see my students come back and discuss, save to tell me that a few questions were out of syllabus in their judgment and I had no right to include them. Things have changed a lot. Today, my students are all with me 24x7 in Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, but their virtual reality is nothing compared to the warmth that I could sense my father being showered with by his students. Mobile phones and emails are flooded with forwards that arrive in bulk, but rarely with a personal tone. The fast pace of life has eroded the joy of being a teacher to the students everyday of our life. Students are busy with gaming, surfing, messaging and downloading. Teachers are too busy to be bothered! Akin to the World Environment Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, we need a day devoid of any technological gadgets and see how we relate to each other that golden day. It’s time to engage in conversations with our students to help them come out of the virtual world and experience the joy of exploring themselves along with us!Question What prompted the author of the passage to take up a teaching career? 1. The expectation of being showered with gifts of love from students on special occasions. 2. The aura of love and respect of students that his father commanded. 3. The opportunity to interact with students and share their excitement.

Question 79
                                                           PASSAGE – VII Nepal has promised India that it would end discrimination against car imports from the country and allow imports on the basis of self-certification by Indian Government authorized manufacturers. India, too, has removed special additional duty of 4% on all imports from Nepal that enjoy zero basic customs duty under the Indo-Nepal treaty of trade, following requests from the Nepalese government that its exports were losing competitiveness in the Indian market. The assurances on the long standing grouses were given by Commerce Secretaries from both countries in a meeting in New Delhi on Tuesday. India had complained to Nepal that it permitted all countries, other than India, to sell vehicles through self certified ‘type approvals’ or TAs, which was a confirmation of procedure commitment given by the manufacturer. “The Nepalese side said that if the Government of India authorizes any manufacturer for giving self certified TAs, the Government of Nepal will recognize the same,” according to the minutes of the meeting. To help Nepal export products to India, the country has done away with special additional duty of 4% on import of all products that are imported duty free under the Indo-Nepal trade treaty. The SAD was imposed in 2006. Nepal’s export to India is just $500 million, against India’s exports of $2.2 billion. India has, however, turned down Nepal’s request of waiving excise on propane and butane imported by Nepalese companies from third countries, which are mixed in India and exported to Nepal. India said that such mixing was considered production activity which is subject to excise. India also asked Nepal to restore margin of preference on import duty for Indian goods which was brought down from 20% in 2001-02, to 5% in 2006-07. Margin of preference is the difference in import duty levied on the preferred country as opposed to other countries. Under the South Asia Free Trade Agreement, of which both India and Nepal are signatories, Nepal gives margin of preference of 25% on applicable goods. Nepal said that it would favourably consider the request in its forthcoming budget session.Question Choose the statement that is “true” as per the passage.

Indo-Nepal treaty of trade is the only trade agreement under which the two countries can do export-import business.

C
India had been levying a special additional duty on exports from Nepal into India.

Question 82
                                                       PASSAGE – VIII Jogging may be okay, but going for extreme endurance events such as marathons could take a toll on your health, says a new study. It’s said that putting the heart under heavy strain for long periods causes scarring of the heart muscle, known as fibrosis. This damage is normally reversed within a week of an event, the process of repairing serving to make the heart fitter. However, researchers who followed 40 elite Australian athletes have found evidence of “more permanent damage” in five of them, the European Heart Journal reported. According to them, fibrosis can impair how well the heart performs when a person is exercising intensively. It can also lead to irregular heartbeats, called arrhythmias. And serious arrhythmias can be life-threatening. The lead researcher at a hospital in Belgium said: “It is likely to affect only a minority of athletes, particularly those in whom more intense training fails to result in further improvements in their performance.” He said that the five who saw longer-term damage had been training and competing for longer than the others. “It is most important that our findings are not over-extrapolated to infer that endurance exercise is unhealthy. Our data do not support this premise,” he added. The researchers found damage in the right ventricle, one of the four chambers of the heart, using MRI scanning. They found no damage in the left ventricle. However, experts are fully convinced. A consultant cardiologist and medical director of the London Marathon, was quoted by The Daily Telegraph as saying, “it is too early to say that taking part in endurance sports causes long-term damage to the right ventricle.” But, this study is an indication that it might cause a problem in some endurance athletes with a predisposition and, therefore, it should be studied further, he added.Question The study referred to in the passage does not support which of the following statement(s)?

Fibrosis is a permanent form of damage of the heart muscle.

The automaker recently notified parts suppliers that it intends to roll out around 800000 hybrids domestically this year, with the figure to be raised to around 900000 in 2011 and 1.1 million in 2012, the Nikkei reported. Last year’s output was estimated to be around 500000, it said without citing sources. Toyota also plans to sell an additional 10 new hybrid models from minivans, subcompacts to luxury cars within a few years, on top of its current line-ups such as the Prius, Sai and Lexus HS250h, the Nikkei said. The world’s biggest automaker now makes about 90 per cent of its hybrids at home. In 2011, hybrids are likely to account for about 30 per cent of all vehicles that Toyota manufactures in Japan, up from the projected figure of about 20 per cent for 2009, the Nikkei said. Toyota’s petrol-electric Prius was the best-selling car in Japan last year, becoming the first hybrid to top the annual rankings, while the sales almost tripled from the previous year.Question Sales of Prius tripled from the previous year.

Question 28
                                                                PASSAGE IIUS-based aircraft manufacturer Boeing on Monday said that the start of the proposed Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facility in Nagpur has been delayed. In an informal chat with media persons, the Boeing India President, Mr. Dinesh Keskar, said that the delay is concomitant to the delay in delivery of the Boeing 787 aircraft to Air India. “We do not want to create a white elephant in Nagpur. With the delay in delivery of the Boeing 787 we decided to delay the start of the MRO also. The B787 will not require heavy maintenance for several years” Mr Keskar said. The MRO is primarily being set up to take care of the maintenance needs of the 27 Boeing 787 and 23 Boeing 777 aircraft ordered by Air India. The first Boeing 787 aircraft is now expected to be delivered to All Nippon Airways later this year, almost two years behind the scheduled data of delivery and AI is expected to receive the first B787 only in the second quarter of 2011, Mr Keskar added. Commenting on aircraft deliveries to Indian carriers, Mr Keskar said Boeing expects to deliver three aircraft each to Air India, Spice Jet and JetLite. Boeing continues to consider India an important market where domestic airlines will require aircraft worth $100 billion till 2029 while the Defence industry will offer opportunities worth $31 billion till 2019.Question Setting up an MRO facility in Nagpur by Boeing.

                                                            PASSAGE IIIInfotech Enterprises, which registered a turnover of Rs 239 crore in the quarter ended December 31,2009, has announced that it has won a major avionics contract from Hamilton Sundstrand Corporation, a subsidiary of US-based United Technologies Corp. The four-year deal, which involves setting up a dedicated centre with 400 engineers, would mark the foray of Infotech into the embedded software and electronic engineering design services worldwide. Addressing a press conference here on Monday, Mr BVR Mohan Reddy, Chairman and Managing Director of Infotech, however, did not divulge the value of the contract. Acquisition: In another development, the company acquired the US-based Daxcon Engineering, an engineering services firm, in an all-cash deal. It would get Infotech an additional 150 employees. Though the size of the deal to acquire the US firm that had a run rate of $13-15 million was not revealed, Mr Reddy had said that he was not game for acquisitions beyond $20 million. Infotech has a cash pile of Rs 396 crore earmarked for acquisitions. It also indicated that another acquisition deal is likely to happen in the next few months. Hedging: The board of directors, which met here to consider the third quarter results, had approved a proposal to take futures cover for 70 per cent of revenue inflows for the next 12 months. He said that there was no major pressure on the pricing front. Infotech plans to hire 350 more in the fourth quarter which is expected to witness a “high single digit” growth rate.Question Infotech has a cash pile of Rs 396 crore earmarked for acquisitions.

                                                                       PASSAGE IV  West Bengal-based micro finance institution, Village Financial Services (VFS), plans to expand its operations to cover all districts of the State and parts of Jharkhand and Orissa by the next couple of years, and to reach out to 1.5 million poor households by March 2012, according to a press statement issued by the MFI. “This year we will follow a rapid expansion plan across the State and expand our footprints into Jharkhand and Orissa,” said Mr Kuldip Maity, Man-aging Director and Chief Executive Officer, VFS. The company currently has presence in 11 districts of the State and is hopeful of covering the entire State by the end of December 2010. Over one lakh poor house-holds across these three States do not have proper access to financial services, he said and added, “To meet their financial needs they are mostly dependent on moneylenders to whom they pay a monthly interest of about 8 per cent.” Loan disbursal: The company, Mr Maity said, will aim to extend Rs 1000 crore loans to 1.5 million households by March 2012. VFS, which started its operations in 2005, currently has a membership base of 2.5 lakh poor households and has disbursed close to Rs 392 crore with a repayment rate of 99.82 per cent, he said. It has 51 branch offices across the State covering almost 3000 villages and slums and a staff strength of 500. “To meet our growth targets, we are looking at increasing our staff strength to 1500”, he said. The company follows a methodology of forming joint liability group (JLG)-a joint group effort towards self employment with people having similar socio-economic profile and living in the same neighbourhood coming together. VFS, Mr Maity said, was looking to infuse funds by the end of this fiscal to support its growth needs. “We are planning to attract social investors. We will be launching new products and other services such as health insurance in the coming year,” he added.Question Explaining operation to cover all districts of WB, and parts of Jharkhand and Orissa?
