ENGLISH ABILITY
Passage I
I suppose the vitality of a group, an individual or a society is measured by the extent to which it
posses courage and above all, creative imagination. If that imagination is lacking our growth
becomes more and more stunted, which is a sign of decay. What then is happening. Today? Are we
trying to improve in this respect or are we merely functioning somewhere on the surface without
touching the reality which is afflicting on the surface without touching the reality which is afflicting
the world & which may result in political conflict, economic warfare or world war? So, when there
are discussions on the concept of man as visualized in the Eastern Ideal or The Western Ideal. They
interest me greatly from a historical point of view and from a cultural point of view, although I
have always resisted this idea of dividing the world into the orient and occident, I do not believe in
such divisions. There have, of course, been differences in racial and nation of outlook and in ideals
but to talk of the east & west as such as little meaning. I can see the difference between an
industrialized and a non-industrialised country. I think the difference, say, between India and
Europe in the middle ages, would not have been very great and would have been comparable to the
difference between any of the great countries of Asia today. I feel that we think roughly because
we are misled in our approach. Differences have crept in and been intensified by this process of
industrialization & mechanization which has promoted material well being tremendously and which
has been a blessing to humanity. At the same time, it is corroding the life of the mind & thereby
encouraging a process of self destruction. I am not for the moment talking or thinking about wars
and the like we have seen in history races come up and gradually fade away in Asia, in Europe and
other places. Are we witnessing the same thing today? It may be that this will not take effect in our
lifetime. In the past anyway, one great consolation was that things happened only in one particular
greater of the world. If there was a collapse in one part of the world, the other part carried on. No
part will be left to survive, as it could in older times. During the so called Dark ages of Europe,
there were bright periods in Asia, in China, in India, in the middle east and else where. In the old
days if progress was limited, disaster was also limited in extent and intensity. Today, when we have
arrived at a period of great disaster and it is a little difficult for us to choose a middle way which
would unable us to achieve a little progress and, at the same time to limit the scope of disaster.
That is the major question. A person who has to carry a burden of responsibility is greater troubled
by the practical aspects of this question. Am I right in saying that the mental life of the world is in
a process of deterioration, chiefly because the environment that has been created by the Industrial
Revolution does not give time or opportunity to individuals to think? I do not deny that today there
are many great thinkers but it is quite likely that they might be submerged in the mass of
unthinking humanity. We are dealing with and talking a great deal about democracy and I have
little doubt that democracy is the best of all the various methods available to us for the governance
of human beings. At the same time, we are using today-by today I mean the last two decades or so-
the emergence of democracy in a somewhat uncontrolled form. When we think of democracy, we
normally think of it in the rather limited sense of the 19
th
century or the early 20
th
century use of
the term. Owing to the remarkable technological growth, something has happened since then and
meanwhile democracy has also spread. The result is that we have vast masses of human beings
brought up by the Industrial Revolution, who are not encouraged or given an opportunity to think
much. They live a life which, from the point of view of physical comfort, is incomparably better
than it has been in any previous generation, but they seldom have a chance to think. And yet in a
democratic system, it is this vast mass of human beings that will ultimately govern or elect those
who govern.
Q1. Which one of the following statements is true according to the passage?
(1) Vitality and courage endanger creative imagination.
(2) Our attempts to grow are becoming more and more stunted.
(3) Decadence stunts the faculty of imagination.
(4) We are not attempting seriously enough to encourage age the growth of creative
imagination.
Q2. According to the author, the present is characterized by
(1) self destructive tendencies
(2) great scope for disaster
(3) localized progress
(4) material progress
Q3. The problem facing us, as per the passage, is the choice between
(1) extent of progress and scope of disaster
(2) creativity and economic growth
(3) spirituality and materialism
(4) physical comfort and vitality
Q4. According to the passage, which one of the following statements is true and modern
democracy?
(1) It stifles the individually of human beings.
(2) It is a product of modern materialism.
(3) It has engendered technological progress.
(4) It is largely constituted of individuals who do not think.
Q5. We can conclude from the passage that
(1) the price of progress is very high
(2) an environment that supports progress and human individuality must be created.
(3) economic growth will have to be slowed down to give people time to think.
(4) industrialization has proved to be a curse to humanity.
Passage II
In many underdeveloped countries, the state plays an important and increasingly varied role in
economic development today. There are four general arguments, all of them related, for state
participation in economic development. First, the entrance requirements in terms of financial and
capital equipment are very large in industries, and the size of these obstacles will sere as barriers
to entry on the part of private investors. One can imagine that these obstacles are imposing in
industries such as steel production, automobiles, electronics, and parts of the textiles industry. In
addition, there are what Myint calls “technical indivisibilities in social overhead capital.” Public
utilities, transport, and communication facilities must be in place before industrial development
can occur, and they do not lend themselves to small-scale improvements. A related argument
centres on the demand side of the economy. This economy is seen as fragmented, disconnected,
and incapable of using inputs from other parts of the economy. Consequently, economic activity in
one part of the economy does not generate the dynamism in other sectors that is expected in more
cohesive economies. Industrialization necessarily involves many different, sectors; economic
enterprises will thrive best in an environment in which they draw on inputs from related economic
sectors and, in turn, release their own goods for industrial utilization within their own economies. A
third argument concerns the low-level equilibrium trap in which less developed countries find
themselves. At subsistence levels, societies consume exactly what they produce. There is no
remaining surplus for reinvestment. As per-capita income rises, however, the additional income will
not be used for saving and investment. Instead, it will have the effect of increasing the population
that will eat up the surplus and force the society to its former subsistence position. Fortunately,
after a certain point, the rate of population growth will decrease; economic growth will intersect
with and eventually outstrip population growth. The private sector, however, will not be able to
provide the one-shot large dose of capital to push economic growth beyond those levels where
population increases eat up the incremental advances. The final argument concerns the
relationship between delayed development and the state. Countries wishing to industrialize today
have more competitors, and these competitors occupy a more differnentiated industrial terrain
than previously. This means that the available niches in the international system are more limited.
For today’s industrializers, therefore, the process of industrialization cannot be a haphazard affair,
not can the pace, content, and direction be left, solely to market forces. Part of the reason for
strong state presence, then, relates specifically to the competitive international environment in
which modern countries and firms must operate.
Q6. What does the author suggest about the “technical indivisibilities in social overhead
capital”?
(1) It is a barrier to private investment
(2) It enhances the development effects of private sector investment
(3) It leads to rapid technological progress
(4) It can prevent development from occurring
Q7. According to the passage, the “low-level equilibrium trap” in underdeveloped countries
results from
(1) the inability of market forces to overcome the effects of population growth
(2) intervention of the state in economic development
(3) the tendency for societies to produce more than they can use
(4) the fragmented and disconnected nature of the demand side of the economy.
Q8. According to the author, a strong state presence is necessary
(1) to provide food for everyone
(2) to provide the capital needed to spur economic growth
(3) to ensure the livelihood of workers
(4) to ensure that people have more than what is necessary for subsistence
Q9. In the passage, the world ‘cohesive’ means
(1) containing many cohorts or groups
(2) modern and competitive
(3) naturally and logically connected
(4) containing many different sectors
Q10. In the passage, the word ‘imposing’ means
(1) Something huge
(2) something that strikes a pose
(3) something that obtrudes on others
(4) to act with a delusive effect
Passage III
Scientists seeking view new ways to repair damaged arteries and ailing hearts have coaxed stem
cells from a human embryo into forming tiny blood vessels. It’s the first time human embryonic
stem cells have been nurtured to the point where they will organize into blood vessels that could
nourish the body, according to Robert Langer, leader of a laboratory team at the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology. But it isn’t likely to be the last, as scientists pursue research into uses for
stem cells despite debate over the ethics of using the cells. The new development was reported in
Tuesday’s online issue of proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Dr. John Gearhart of
the Johns Hopkins Schools of Medicine said research was a “nice illustration” of how stem cells can
serve as a source of various types of cells, in this case for blood vessels. “I think this is terrific” said
Gearhart, who was not part of the research team. “It’s another good example of the isolation of an
important cell type from human embryonic stem cells.” “These are the kinds of papers we are
going to see a lot of,” Gearhart added. Langer said the work showed that endothelial cells could be
made from human embryonic stem cells. Endothelial cells have veins, arteries and lymph tissue.
They are key to the structures that carry blood throughout the body. He said that if the technique
we refined, scientists would eventually be able to make in the laboratory blood vessels that could
be used to replace diseased arteries in the body: “There are thousands of operations a year now
where doctors take vessels from one part of the body and transplant them to another,” said Langer.
Eventually, he said, such vessels might be made outside the body from embryonic stem cells.
Langer said endothelial cells also might be used to restore circulation to cells damaged by heart
attacks. He said the processed stem cells may be able to reestablish blood flow to hearts failing
due to blocked arteries. The research was conducted under a private grant, but Langer said the cell
culture used is one of 61 worldwide that have been approved by the National Institutes of Health
for federally funded research. The use of embryonic stem cells is controversial because extracting
the cells kills a living human embryo. President Bush last summer decided that federal funding
would be permitted only for stem cell cultures that already existed and were made from embryos
that were to be discarded by fertility clinics. The aim was to prevent further killing for research
purposes of other human embryos. Langer said his lab will seek federal money to continue research
using the same stem cell cultures, which were obtained from the Ram Bam Medial Center in Haifa,
Israel. Embryonic stem cells are the ancestral cells of every cell in the body. In a developing
embryo, they transform into cells that make up the organs, bone, skin and other tissues.
Researchers hope to direct the transformation of such cells to treat ailing hearts, livers, brains and
other organs. Langer said his team cultured the cells in such a way that they were allowed to
develop into the various types of cells that are precursors to mature tissue. From this colony, the
researchers extracted cells that were following a linage that would lead to mature endothelial cells.
These were further cultured and some eventually formed primitive vascular structures.

DATA ANALYSIS & SUFFICIENCY
Directions (Questions 81-83) : Study the information given below to answer these questions.
Mr. Kunal Dwivedi wants to buy a motorbike which is priced at Rs. 45,000. The bike is also available
at Rs. 25,000 down payment and monthly installments of Rs. 1000 per month for 2 years or Rs.
18,000 down payment and monthly instalment of Rs. 1000 per month for 3 years. Mr. Kunal has with
him only Rs. 12,000. He wants to borrow the balance money of the down payment from a private
money lender whose terms are :
If Rs. 6,000 is borrowed for 12 months, the rate of interest is 20%. The interest will be calculated
on the whole amount for the whole year, even though the repayment has to be done in 12 equal
monthly instalments starting from the first month itself. Thus he will have to repay an amount of Rs.
600 per month for 12 months to repay Rs. 6000 (Principal) + Rs. 1,200 (Interest @ 20%).
If Rs. 10,000 upwards is borrowed for one year, the rate of interest is 30% and is calculated in
exactly the same manner as above.

Q121. The extent to which a society is really free can be gauged by its attitude towards artistic
expression. Freedom of expression can easily be violated in even the most outwardly
democratic of societies. When a government arts council withholds funding from a dance
performance that its members deem “obscene”, the voices of a few bureaucrats have in
fact censored the real obscenity of repression.
Which of the following, if true, would most seriously weaken the argument above?
(1) Failing to provide financial support for a performance is not the same as actively
preventing or inhibiting it.
(2) The term obscenity has several different definitions that should not be used
interchangeably for rhetorical effect.
(3) Members of government arts councils are screened to ensure that their beliefs reflect
those of the majority.
(4) The council’s decision could be reversed if the performance were altered to conform to
public standards of appropriateness.

Which of the following can be reasonably inferred from the statements above?
(1) If productivity consultants continue to utilize these techniques, complete work
stoppages will eventually result.
(2) The fact that productivity enhancement techniques are so widely employed has led to a
decline in the ability of American business to complete abroad.

not be employed in the workplace.
(4) Ironically, an increase in the productivity of discrete tasks may result in a decrease in
the productivity of the whole production process.
Q123. The increase in the number of newspaper articles exposed as fabrications serves to bolster
the contention that publishers are more increased in boosting circulation than in printing
the truth. Even minor publications have staff to check such obvious fraud.

(2) everything a newspaper prints must be factually verifiable.
(3) newspaper stories exposed as fabrications are a recent phenomenon.
(4) only recently have newspaper admitted to publishing fraudulent stories intentionally.

Q5.

Passage II In many underdeveloped countries, the state plays an important and increasingly varied role in economic development today. There are four general arguments, all of them related, for state participation in economic development. First, the entrance requirements in terms of financial and capital equipment are very large in industries, and the size of these obstacles will sere as barriers to entry on the part of private investors. One can imagine that these obstacles are imposing in industries such as steel production, automobiles, electronics, and parts of the textiles industry. In addition, there are what Myint calls “technical indivisibilities in social overhead capital.” Public utilities, transport, and communication facilities must be in place before industrial development can occur, and they do not lend themselves to small-scale improvements. A related argument centres on the demand side of the economy. This economy is seen as fragmented, disconnected, and incapable of using inputs from other parts of the economy. Consequently, economic activity in one part of the economy does not generate the dynamism in other sectors that is expected in more cohesive economies. Industrialization necessarily involves many different, sectors; economic enterprises will thrive best in an environment in which they draw on inputs from related economic sectors and, in turn, release their own goods for industrial utilization within their own economies. A third argument concerns the low-level equilibrium trap in which less developed countries find themselves. At subsistence levels, societies consume exactly what they produce. There is no remaining surplus for reinvestment. As per-capita income rises, however, the additional income will not be used for saving and investment. Instead, it will have the effect of increasing the population that will eat up the surplus and force the society to its former subsistence position. Fortunately, after a certain point, the rate of population growth will decrease; economic growth will intersect with and eventually outstrip population growth. The private sector, however, will not be able to provide the one-shot large dose of capital to push economic growth beyond those levels where population increases eat up the incremental advances. The final argument concerns the relationship between delayed development and the state. Countries wishing to industrialize today have more competitors, and these competitors occupy a more differnentiated industrial terrain than previously. This means that the available niches in the international system are more limited. For today’s industrializers, therefore, the process of industrialization cannot be a haphazard affair, not can the pace, content, and direction be left, solely to market forces. Part of the reason for strong state presence, then, relates specifically to the competitive international environment in which modern countries and firms must operate.

“I think this is terrific” said Gearhart. “It’s another good example of the isolation of an important cell type from human embryonic stem cells. according to Robert Langer.” “These are the kinds of papers we are going to see a lot of. President Bush last summer decided that federal funding would be permitted only for stem cell cultures that already existed and were made from embryos that were to be discarded by fertility clinics. who was not part of the research team. John Gearhart of the Johns Hopkins Schools of Medicine said research was a “nice illustration” of how stem cells can serve as a source of various types of cells. as scientists pursue research into uses for stem cells despite debate over the ethics of using the cells. Dr. Q10. Langer said the work showed that endothelial cells could be made from human embryonic stem cells. What does the author suggest about the “technical indivisibilities in social overhead capital”? (1) It is a barrier to private investment (2) It enhances the development effects of private sector investment (3) It leads to rapid technological progress (4) It can prevent development from occurring According to the passage. Q8. The use of embryonic stem cells is controversial because extracting the cells kills a living human embryo.” Gearhart added. the word ‘imposing’ means (1) Something huge (2) something that strikes a pose (3) something that obtrudes on others (4) to act with a delusive effect Q7. But it isn’t likely to be the last. a strong state presence is necessary (1) to provide food for everyone (2) to provide the capital needed to spur economic growth (3) to ensure the livelihood of workers (4) to ensure that people have more than what is necessary for subsistence In the passage. They are key to the structures that carry blood throughout the body. According to the author. the “low-level equilibrium trap” in underdeveloped countries results from (1) the inability of market forces to overcome the effects of population growth (2) intervention of the state in economic development (3) the tendency for societies to produce more than they can use (4) the fragmented and disconnected nature of the demand side of the economy. Q9. Langer said his lab will seek federal money to continue research .” said Langer. Langer said endothelial cells also might be used to restore circulation to cells damaged by heart attacks. the world ‘cohesive’ means (1) containing many cohorts or groups (2) modern and competitive (3) naturally and logically connected (4) containing many different sectors In the passage. but Langer said the cell culture used is one of 61 worldwide that have been approved by the National Institutes of Health for federally funded research. The new development was reported in Tuesday’s online issue of proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. he said. Endothelial cells have veins. Eventually. arteries and lymph tissue. Passage III Scientists seeking view new ways to repair damaged arteries and ailing hearts have coaxed stem cells from a human embryo into forming tiny blood vessels. such vessels might be made outside the body from embryonic stem cells. scientists would eventually be able to make in the laboratory blood vessels that could be used to replace diseased arteries in the body: “There are thousands of operations a year now where doctors take vessels from one part of the body and transplant them to another. leader of a laboratory team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. in this case for blood vessels.Q6. It’s the first time human embryonic stem cells have been nurtured to the point where they will organize into blood vessels that could nourish the body. The research was conducted under a private grant. The aim was to prevent further killing for research purposes of other human embryos. He said that if the technique we refined. He said the processed stem cells may be able to reestablish blood flow to hearts failing due to blocked arteries.

The one essential 19 factor in a company being able to create the right customer experience that is so necessary for it’s continued 20 is it’s people. your taxability in India. (4) Performing open heart surgeries. Langer said his team cultured the cells in such a way that they were allowed to develop into the various types of cells that are precursors to mature tissue. the researchers extracted cells that were following a linage that would lead to mature endothelial cells. they transform into cells that make up the organs. Q14. In a developing embryo. Embryonic stem cells are the ancestral cells of every cell in the body. Which of the following statements does not follow from the passage?
