four alternatives.

PASSAGE I

(Question Nos. 191 to 195)

Stuck with be development

dilemma? Stay away from management

courses. Seriously, one of the biggest

complaints that organisations have

about management courses is that they

fail to impact the participants on-the-job

behaviour. Some management trainers

stress the need for follow-up and

reinforcement on the job. Some go so far

as briefing the participants managers on

reinforcing back on the job. Others

include a follow-up training day to

review the progress of the participants.

None of this is really going far enough.

The real problem is that course

promoters view development as

something which primarily, takes place in

a classroom. A course is an event and

events are, by definition limited in time.

When you talk about follow-up after a

course, it is seen as a nice idea, but not

as an essential part of the participants

development programme. Any rational,

empowered individual should be able to

take what has been learnt in a course and

transfer it to the work place or so the

argument goes. Another negative aspect

of the course mindset is that, primarily,

development is thought to be about skillacquisition.

So, it is felt that the distinction

between taking the course and behaving

differently in the work place parallels the

distinction between skill-acquisition and

skill-application. But can such a sharp

distinction be maintained ? Skills are

really acquired only in the context of

applying them on the job, finding them

effective and therefore, reinforcing them.

The problem with courses is that

they are events, while development is an

on-going process which, involves,

within a complex environment, continual

interaction, regular feedback and

adjustment. As we tend to equate

development with a one-off event, it is

difficult to get seriously motivated

about the follow-up. Anyone paying for

a course tends to look at follow-up as an

unnecessary and rather costly frill.

191. What is the passage about?

(a) personal management

(b) development dilemma

(c) management courses

(d) course promoters attitude

is false?

(a) Some management trainers

stress the need for follow-up

progress of the participants

(c) Some go to the extent of

briefing the participants

managers on what behaviour

they should be reinforcing

back on the job

(d) The real problem is that

course promoters view

development as something

which does not take place

during a course

in the passage, is

(a) critical

(b) ironic

PASSAGE II

(Question Nos. 196 to 200)

One may look at life, events,

society, history, in another way. A way

which might, at a stretch, be described as

the Gandhian way, though it may be from

times before Mahatma Gandhi came on

the scene. The Gandhian reaction to all

the grim poverty, squalor and

degradation of the human being would

approximate to effort at self-change and

self-improvement, to a regime of living

regulated by discipline from within. To

change society, the individual must first

change himself. In this way of looking at

life and society, words too begin to mean

differently. Revolution, for instance, is a

term frequently used, but not always in

the sense it has been in the lexicon of

the militant. So also with words like

peace and struggle. Even society may

mean differently, being some kind of

organic entity for the militant, and more

or less a sum of individuals for the

which might, for want of a better

description, be called the mystic. The

mystics perspective measures these

concerns that transcend political

ambition and the dynamism of the

reformer, whether he be militant or

Gandhian. The mystic measures the

terror of not knowing the remorseless

march of time; he seeks to know what

was before birth, what comes after death.

The continuous presence of death, of

the consciousness of death, sets his

priorities. and values: militants and

Gandhians kings and prophets must

leave all that they have built; all that they

have un-built and depart when

messengers of the buffalo-riding Yama

come out of the shadows. Water will to

impermanence. Everything passes.

himself from within

The postmaster first took up his

duties in the village of Ulapur. Though

the village was a small one, there was an

indigo factory nearby and the propritor,

an Englishman, had managed to get a

post office established.

Our postmaster belonged to

Calcutta. He felt like a fish out of water in

this remove village. His office and livingroom were in a dark thatched shed, not

far from a green, silmy pond, surrounded

on all sides by a dense growth.

The men employed in the indigo

factory had no leisure, moreover they

were hardly desirable companions for

decent folk. Nor is a Calcutta boy an

adept in the art of associating with

others. Among strangers he appears

night swept away the trees, leaves and

all, and replaced them with a

macadamised road, hiding the clouds

from view with rows of tall houses.

Passage I

A crucial element that defines the

soap opera is the open-ended nature of

the narrative, with stories spanning

several episodes. One of the defining

features that makes a television program

a soap opera, according to Albert

Moran, is that form of television that

works with a continuous open narrative.

Each episode ends with a promise that

the storyline is to be continued in

another episode.

In 2012, Robert. Lloyd of the Los

Angeles Times wrote of daily dramas,

Although melodramatically eventful,

http://sscportal.in/community/courses

1.11: Solved Paper (26-10-2014) (1st Sitting)

luxury of space that makes them seem

more naturalistic, indeed, the economics

of the form demand long scenes and

conversations that a 22-episodes-perseason weekly series might dispense

with half a dozen lines of dialogue may

be drawn out, as here, for pages. You

spend more time even with the minor

characters the apparent villains grow less

a apparently villainous.

Soap opera storylines run

concurrently, intersect and lead into

further developments An individual

episode of a soap opera will generally

switch between several different

concurrent .arrative threads that may at

times interconnect and affect one

another or may run entirely independent

of each other. Evening soap operas and

serials that run for only a part of the year

tend to bring things to a dramatic end-ofseason cliffhanger.

the open -ended nature of soap

operas?

(a) Every episode ends shruptly

(b) Consecutive episodes nave

no connection

(c) Each episode ends with a

promise that the storyline is to

be continued in another

(b) tragic

(c) artistic

(d) naturalistic

(a) melodramatic events

(b) promising storylines

(c) long scenes

(d) luxurious space

194. An individual episode of a soap

opera generally switches between

(a) successive intersections of

events

threads

(c) more time spent with minor

characters

(d) apparent villains that grow

less apparent villainous

195. Soap operas that run for a part of

the year usually end in

(a) a cliffhanger

(b) a sequence

(c) a cliff

Passage II

Two or three days and nights went

by, 1 reckon I might say they swam by

we ran rights, and laid up and hid

daytimes, soon as night was most gone

we stopped navigating and tied up nearly

always in the dead water under a

towhead and then cut young cotton

woods and willows and hid the roft with

them-Then, we set out the lines. Next we

slid into the river and had a swim, so as

to freshen up and cool, off then we set

down on the sandy bottom where the

water was about knee deep and watched

the daylight come. Not a sound

anywhere-perfectly shill just like the

whole word was asleep, only sometimes,

the bullfrogs a cluttering maybe. The

first thing to see, looking away over the

water, was a kind of dull line- that was the

woods on other side, you couldnt make

nothing else out, then a pale place in the

sky, then more paleness spreading

around, then the river softened up away

off and warm black any more, but gray

you could see little dark spots drifing

along ever so far away-trading scowe

and such things and long black streaksrafts sometimes you could hear a sweep

creaking, jumbled up voices, it was so

still and sounds comes so far and by

and by you could see a streak on the

water which you know by the look of the

http://sscportal.in/community/study-kit

look that way.

139. Taking option (b), which is

b2x2 a2y2 = a2b2

...(i)

Now, putting the value of x and y

in Eq. (i)

b2(a sec )2 a2(b tan )2

= a2b2

b2a2 sec2 a2b2 tan2 = a2b2

a2b2 (sec2 tan2 ) = a2b2

a2b2 = a2b2

[Q sec2

tan2 = 1]

Hence, option (b) is the right

answer.
