[D] Options [A] and [C] are incorrect as they have been explicitly stated in the passage. Option [A] is mentioned in the last few lines of the passage where the author states that his analyst died and then he was not tested by anyone else. Option [C] is incorrect because the author states that he finds Mayo‟s comparison of Freud and Janet to be useful. Option [B] is incorrect as it cannot be stated with a degree of certainty whether or not the author compared Mayo and Freud. Option [D] is not true and is the answer because the author did not „constantly‟ compare Janet and Freud; rather he used Mayo‟s comparison of them. Paragraph A clearly states that epistemology is what makes knowledge knowledge. Ontology is that branch of metaphysics that studies the nature of existence or being as such. Aesthetics is what makes the beautiful beautiful. This eliminates options [A], [B] and [D]. Throughout the latter part of the passage, Mayo has drawn on inputs from both- he was influenced by Janet and Freud. Options [A], [B] and [C] are true statements as stated in paragraph 2 of the passage. Option [D] is not a true statement as “Synthetic propositions” constitute „a posterior knowledge‟. The author states that he was a bit of a logician, a bit of a positivist and a bit of a pragmatist. This eliminates options B. Options [C] and [D] are eliminated as the author does not state them in the passage. Paragraph 3 states, „I felt it important to maintain this distinction without having to accept wholly either Hume‟s or Kant‟s epistemological conclusions‟. This eliminates options A, B and C. Option [A] is incorrect. The passage states that a positive effect of FDI on Lithuanian local suppliers working through backward links was found. From this, we cannot make a conclusion that local suppliers promote multinationals. 10. [A] Option [C] is an incorrect statement. The passage has nothing to say with regard to backward links and increased competition. Option [D] is partially correct. The passage states that “because a multinational has more incentives to promote local suppliers, backward links may be more widely observed…” The following extract, “… backward links may be more widely observed than horizontal links, which inherently are associated with increased competition” determines Option [B] to be the correct statement. Hence Option [B] scores over Option [D]. 8. [C] The following extract, “The evidence from Russia indicates that FDI inflows are lagging behind those of some BRICs comparators…” determines Option [C] to be the correct answer option. The following extract, “At the same time, the large increases in FDI observed since 2002 suggest a growing balance within manufacturing and between the manufacturing and service sectors…” points to Option [B] as being the correct answer option. Option [A] can also be eliminated since it pertains to FDI made prior to 2002. The following extract, “Russian multinationals continue to dominate the outward FDI of the South-Eastern Europe and CIS region for FDI in joint ventures and mergers, accounting for 87 percent of the total in 2005” point to Option [A] as being the correct answer option. The following extract, “Investment includes large deals to acquire and create joint ventures with enterprises…” establishes the fact that Russian MNCs have created large partnerships. The passage goes on to give two examples of such large partnerships. This establishes Option [A] to be the correct answer option. In light of the above explanation, we can eliminate Option [B]. Option [C] has not been explicitly mentioned nor can it be implied from the passage. Option [A] can be eliminated since the passage mentions Russian MNCs only in
“The human role in defining (and subsequently carrying out) changes is thus recognized” with reference to the „soft systems‟ approach determines Option [C] to be the correct answer option. “The model assumes that the organism is so constituted as to be able to detect significant disparities and to be able to adjust its behavior in response to them” determines Option [C] to be the correct answer option. change is seen as a way of preserving or improving [C] Roots Education 2 GGTIIFT2008S . are non-linear.
