Section I
Direction for questions 1 to 4: Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given at the end. Passage 1 Before the internet, one of the most rapid changes to the global economy and trade was wrought by something so blatantly useful that it is hard to imagine a struggle to get it adopted: the shipping container. In the early 1960s, before the standard container became ubiquitous, freight costs were I0 per cent of the value of US imports, about the same barrier to trade as the average official government import tariff. Yet in a journey that went halfway round the world, half of those costs could be incurred in two ten-mile movements through the ports at either end. The predominant ‘break-bulk’ method, where each shipment was individually split up into loads that could be handled by a team of dockers, was vastly complex and labour-intensive. Ships could take weeks or months to load, as a huge variety of cargoes of different weights, shapes and sizes had to be stacked together by hand. Indeed, one of the most unreliable aspects of such a labour-intensive process was the labour. Ports, like mines, were frequently seething pits of industrial unrest. Irregular work on one side combined with what was often a tight-knit, well - organized labour community on the other. In 1956, loading break-bulk cargo cost $5.83 per ton. The entrepreneurial genius who saw the possibilities for standardized container shipping, Malcolm McLean, floated his first containerized ship in that year and claimed to be able to shift cargo for 15.8 cents a ton. Boxes of the same size that could be loaded by crane and neatly stacked were much faster to load. Moreover, carrying cargo in a standard container would allow it to be shifted between truck, train and ship without having to be repacked each time. But between McLean’s container and the standardization of the global market were an array of formidable obstacles. They began at home in the US with the official Interstate Commerce Commission, which could prevent price competition by setting rates for freight haulage by route and commodity, and the powerful International Longshoremen's M-PP-02 1A.3 Association (ILA) labour union. More broadly, the biggest hurdle was achieving what economists call ‘network effects’: the benefit of a standard technology rises exponentially as more people use it. To dominate world trade, containers had to be easily interchangeable between different shipping lines, ports, trucks and railcars. And to maximize efficiency, they all needed to be the same size. The adoption of a network technology often involves overcoming the resistance of those who are heavily invested in the old system. And while the efficiency gains are clear to see, there are very obvious losers as well as winners. For containerization, perhaps the most spectacular example was the demise of New York City as a port. In the early I950s, New York handled a third of US seaborne trade in manufactured goods. But it was woefully inefficient, even with existing break-bulk technology: 283 piers, 98 of which were able to handle ocean-going ships, jutted out into the river from Brooklyn and Manhattan. Trucks bound‘ for the docks had to fiive through the crowded, narrow streets of Manhattan, wait for an hour or two before even entering a pier, and then undergo a laborious two-stage process in which the goods foot were fithr unloaded into a transit shed and then loaded onto a ship. ‘Public loader’ work gangs held exclusive rights to load and unload on a particular pier, a power in effect granted by the ILA, which enforced its monopoly with sabotage and violence against than competitors. The ILA fought ferociously against containerization, correctly foreseeing that it would destroy their privileged position as bandits controlling the mountain pass. On this occasion, bypassing them simply involved going across the river. A container port was built in New Jersey, where a 1500-foot wharf allowed ships to dock parallel to shore and containers to be lified on and off by crane. Between 1963 - 4 and 1975 - 6, the number of days worked by longshoremen in Manhattan went from 1.4 million to 127,041. Containers rapidly captured the transatlantic market, and then the growing trade with Asia. The effect of containerization is hard to see immediately in freight rates, since the oil price hikes of the 1970s kept them high, but the speed with which shippers adopted; containerization made it clear it brought big benefits

The matter was settled by using the power of federal money: the Federal Maritime Board (FMB). as far as the military was concerned. shapes and sizes. a major shipping firm Matson Navigation used a 24-foot container since a bigger container was not suitable for its trucks. Establishing a US standard and then getting it adopted internationally took more than a decade. Because war involves massive movements of men and material. 20. the US military engaged the company of Malcolm McLean to transport equipments for their soldiers stationed in Western Europe. The US armed forces.TestFunda. (4) In the early days of container trade development. trucks bound for the New York docks had to pass through the narrow streets. Matson Navigation. This was a significant problem to overc ome.which. because that was the maximum size allowed on the highways in its home base in New Jersey. was greatly helped by the container trade that quickly built up between the US and east Asia. later renamed Sea-land. to carry equipment to the quarter of a million American soldiers stationed in Western Europe.

(2) As a result of growing adoption of containerized trade during 1969-73. used a foot container that was easier to truck around winding mountain roads. (3) The outbreak of the Vietnam war functioned as a major positive force towards rapid expansion of containerization. Ocean-borne exports from South Korea were 2. not only did the US Maritime Administration have to mediate in these rivalries but also to fight its own turf battles with the American Standards Association. But the new technology did not get adopted all on its own. as American imports from the country increased heavily. Another of the big shipping companies. it is often armies that pioneer new techniques in supply chains. The government's first helping hand was to give a spur to the system by adopting it to transport military cargo. which handed out to public subsidies for shipbuilding. and then undergo a laborious three-stage process for loading onto a ship. Grace Line. given the labour-intensive ‘break-bulk’ cargo handling. The government’s other role was in banging heads together sufficiently to get all companies to accept the same size container. the same to the US tripled. largely to do with the military. which based their development strategy on exports. One of the few benefits of America's misadventure in Vietnam was a rapid expansion of . The extraordinary growth of the Asian tiger economies of Singapore. Identify the false statement: (1) In the pre-containerization days. used a 24-foot container since its biggest trade was in canned pineapple from Hawaii. not least because all the companies that had started using the container had settled on different sizes.

The emergence of containerization technology in early seventies resulted in: (1) Immediate adoption of the containerized export route by private companies. These related broadly to the (i) the sources of livelihood of the potential consumer segment for financial inclusion (ii) how they spend their money. The fact that a huge proportion of the Indian workforce is either selfemployed and in the casual labour segment suggests the need for products that will make access to credit easier to the former. c – ii.

The second message is that the process of financial inclusion is going to be incomplete and inadequate if it is measured only in terms of new accounts being opened and operated. Grace Line d.

I spent some time drawing implications for M-PP-02 . there emerged a sense that better access to various kinds of financial services would help to increase the livelihood potential of a number of occupational categories.5 www. To reiterate the question that arises from these data patterns: is this because people can’t access banks or other service providers or because they don’t see value in doing so? This question needs to be addressed if an effective inclusion strategy is to be developed. (2) An instant sharp reduction in freight costs expressed as a percentage of imports across countries.TestFunda. b – iv. The data suggest that even savings accounts. I will briefly highlight. salaried jobs. FMB c. but quantitatively significant expenditures like ceremonies and medical costs. The first message emerges from the preliminary discussion on the current scenario on financial inclusion.

The same concerns about lack of penetration amongst the lowest income group for loans also arise. Match the following Set A a. Dockers iv.

This. plays such an important role in both sets of motivations. as has been said. the commercial viability and profitability of a financial inclusion strategy need not be viewed only from the perspective of immediacy. (4) Financial Institutions must deliver social service through financial inclusion. of course. both financial and medical. 60. (3) It is felt that financial inclusion could be profitable from day one if a commercially viable strategy is devised. Every aspect of a financial inclusion strategy — whether it is the design of products and services or the delivery mechanism — needs to be viewed in terms of the business opportunity that it offers and not as a deliverable that has been imposed on the service provider. www. The fifth and final message is actually the point I began the lecture with. amenable to a low-cost. (4) There is lack of penetration for loans amongst the lowest income group.TestFunda. ln other words. It is striking that the need to deal with emergencies. it is also important to emphasize that commercial viability need not necessarily be viewed in terms of immediate cost and profitability calculations. In fact. which offer at least some minimum income security and consumption smoothing. how much security they should offer and for how long and how they should be financed are fundamental policy questions that go beyond the realm of the financial sector. significantly overlap with each other. as one might reasonably expect. It is really a matter of extending them to make them accessible to a very large number of lower income households. the former. financial services also offer the prospect of a life-cycle model of marketing. with a low and possibly uncertain ability to maintain regular contributions. with the attendant service provision. certainly suggests that the need for some kind of income and consumption smoothing product is a significant one in an effective financial inclusion agenda. Which of the following statements is correct? (1) Financial inclusion is exclusively measured in terms of new accounts being opened and operated. The latter is. 7. It is the critical importance of the principle of commercial viability. in a way which provides practical answers to all these three questions. (3) Financial sector should also look into their role of broadening social safety nets. which. 6. which is a theme that recurs through the entire discussion on consumer characteristics. raises broader questions about the role of social safety nets. Like in many other products. The fourth message comes strongly from the motivations to both save and borrow. it must receive the attention of any meaningful financial inclusion strategy. However. Identify the correct statement from the following: (1) Casual labour segment may not require risk mitigation products like insurance as their expenditures on consumption are high relative to their incomes. financial inclusion has to be commercially viable. . Establishing a relationship with first-time consumers of financial products and services offers the opportunity to leverage this relationship into a wider set of financial transactions as at least some of these M-PP-02 1A. There is a viable investment dimension to it as well. to the extent that risk mitigation is a significant financia l need. mass insurance scheme. in a high growth scenario. Which of the following statements is incorrect? (1) In order to succeed.6 consumers move steadily up the income ladder.000 per year is the benchmark for official Poverty Line. a high proportion of such households are likely to move quite quickly from very basic financial services to more and more sophisticated ones. However. (2) Savings account is one of the basic vehicles for financial inclusion. it is not as though such products are not being offered by domestic financial service providers. However. (2) There is a felt need for better access to credit products for the self-employed. (4) Risk mitigation of casual labour must receive attention in any meaningful financial inclusion strategy. How extensive these mechanisms should be. (2) Income of upto Rs. (3) Savings accounts have low penetration amongst “Below Poverty Line” households only.IIFT 2011 already been pointed out.

The current structure is that India has 81 scheduled commercial banks of which 26 are public sector banks. 13. lt should be noted though that bank consolidation through mergers is not always a totally benign option.TestFunda. A natural sequel to this issue of the envisaged structure of the Indian banking system is the Reserve Bank’s position on bank consolidation. (2) Some people expect all banks to become global in coming years. On the negative side. Even a quick review would reveal that there is no segmentation in the banking structure along the lines of Narasimham II. It is. 21 are private sector banks and 34 are foreign banks. They should look out more actively in regions which hold out a promise of attractive acquisitions. The initiative for this has to come from the boards of the banks concerned which have to make a decision based on a judgment of the synergies involved in the business models and the compatibility of the business cultures. Opinion on this is divided. Nevertheless. The main argument is that the increasing global size and influence of Indian corporates warrant a corresponding increase in the global footprint of Indian banks. Having given that broad brush position on bank consolidation let me address two specific questions: (i) can Indian banks aspire to global size?. with a network of branches throughout the country and engaged in universal banking. It is possible to take a middle path and argue that looking outwards towards increased global presence and looking inwards towards deeper financial penetration are not mutually exclusive. and (ii) should Indian banks aspire to global size? On the first question. unlikely that any of our banks will jump into the top ten of the global league even after reasonable consolidation.9 www. Then comes the next question of whether Indian banks should become global. there has definitely been a pause to the rapid expansion overseas of our banks. In its 1998 report. This can be achieved both through organic and inorganic growth. With the onset of the global financial crisis. they only see this as an aspiration consistent with India’s growing international profile. international acceptance and recognition. together with its subsidiaries. notwithstanding the risks involved. experience shows that consolidation would fail if there are no synergies in the business models and there is no compatibility in the business cultures and technology platforms of the merging banks. focus their efforts on financial deepening at home rather than aspiring to global size. based on profitability considerations and brought about through a process of mergers & amalgamations (M&As). improved risk management and improvement in financials due to economies of scale and scope. the State Bank of India (SBI). The opposing view is that Indian banks should look inwards rather than outwards. it should be possible to aim for both. as per the current global league tables based on the size of assets. M-PP-02 1A. is that Indian banks should increase their global footprint opportunistically even if they do not get to the top of the league table.IIFT 2011 become global. in line with globalization.

Most people who put forward this view have not thought through the costs and benefits analytically. therefore. Those who argue that we must go global contend that the issue is not so much the size of our banks in global rankings but of Indian banks having a strong enough.74 followed by ICICI Bank at No. Our view on bank consolidation is that the process should be market-driven. global presence.

USA. 82. the highest increase among all groups is for Chemical Products. where no firm having a legal dispute is permitted to operate. Therefore.6% i. option 4. However. an increase of 100%.2% i.9 while for Asia is 21. Therefore. Therefore. As far as condition I is concerned. it can be inferred that Ramayan Enterprise does not have legal dispute against it. IV. it would only be above Canada and Mexico. Hence.1 × 7 = 0. Asia should be second and North America should be third.63% China’s growth in Office and Telecom Equipment Exports = [(26. if it had increased by 600%.3 Thus. 78. Condition II gets satisfied because it is given that the firm is located in Surat.5 – 0. So. Hence. option 2. option 3 is false. in the actual exam. options 3 and 4 can be eliminated.8 www. option 2 is also true. 75. Therefore. Though nothing is mentioned about condition I. Therefore. Finally. China’s growth in Integrated Circuits and Electronic Components Imports = [(32.

Hence. 3) Some observers are boys. So. 4) All professors are teachers. 2) All professors are consultants. “developers are following laws” would be written as “lop bop eop uop” Hence. From the previous solution. This means that either the set of researchers identical to the set of consultants or the set researchers is a subset of the set of consultants.e.e. looking at the previous solution. Therefore. in (i). But this doesn’t mean that the intersection of boys and teachers will also be a null set. option 3 can be eliminated. option 2. 3) Some researchers are teachers.e. i) All boys are teachers (i. 4) Some teachers are scholars. This means that either the set of researchers identical to the set of professors or the set professors is a subset of the set of researchers. option 4. “developers”. Hence conclusion 3 is true. Thus this statement is incorrect. Hence this statement is also true. 2) Some scholars are not boys This may or may not be true because there are chances that all scholars may also be boys. “lop” ⇒are From (iii) and (iv). All researchers are consultants. i) ii) All observers are scholars (i. If we split the alphabets in a group of 3 we get following arrangement: D__F | __DE | E__D | __EF | __DE | __F Now. “qop gop cop eop” would mean “profitable laws were stopped”. if we put option 3. Consider the four statements (i) “lop eop aop fop” means “Traders are above laws” (ii) “fop cop bop gop” means “Developers were above profitable” (iii) “aop bop uop qop” means “Developers stopped following traders” (iv) “cop jop eop uop” means “Following maps were laws” From (i) and (ii): “fop” ⇒ above From (i) and (iii): “aop” ⇒ traders So. From (i) and (iv).9 www. This means that either the set of teachers is identical to the set of professors or the set of teachers is a subset of the set of professors. This is true for both the cases that have been mentioned above. the intersection of the sets of teachers and boys is not a null set) All scholars are observers. is of is of Let us analyze the conclusions now 1) Some consultants are teachers This is true as the set of teachers will atleast be a M-PP-02 1B.e. There are two possible deductions from this statement. 83. 86. “uop” ⇒ following From (ii) and (iii): “bop” ⇒ developers So. In (ii). the set of observers is definitely a subset of the set of scholars) and the intersection of the sets of scholars and boys is not a null set. 85. “cop” and “gop” correspond to “were and “profitable” in some order”.TestFunda. From the analysis of statement 1.IIFT 2011 There are two possible deductions from this statement. This is untrue because the set of professors is not a subset of teachers. This means that some observers will always be boys. Therefore. the set of observers is a subset of scholars) subset of professors which atleast will be a subset of researchers which will atleast be a subset of consultants. “eop” ⇒ laws So. option 1. we get: DEF | FDE | EFD | DEF | FDE | EF If we see the pattern it is consistent in the sense that the third alphabet in each subset is the first alphabet in Let us analyze the conclusions: 1) Some scholars are boys. 84. Hence. Also. “are” and “laws” will be represented by “lop” and “eop” in no particular order. All professors are researchers. option 1. There may or may not be some teachers who are scholars. “qop” ⇒ stopped.e. the set of observers and scholars are identical) Some observers are scholars (i. the answer should have “laws” in the sentence. “following” and “traders” have been . The intersection of set of boys and scholars is not a null set and the intersection of set of boys and teachers is not a null set. the set of boys is a subset of teachers) ii) Some boys are teachers (i. we know that this statement is also true. We know that either all or some observers are scholars (i. Hence. “eop” ⇒ laws So. All teachers are professors. Set of professors will always be atleast a subset of researchers which will always be atleast a subset of consultants.

e. Prof. So. There are two married couples. Thus options 1. 90. Mona is the mother-in-law of Sonalika. N > P. Hence. There are 6 persons in the family from 3 generations. O = M/2 Hence. Chakravarty. it does not do anything to solve or prevent the issue. having A is not logical. D). 89. So. E. It is given in the question that Tarun likes Punjabi food and supports Basketball. 96. So. Note that in the three options. 3M % 2N N % 3O In normal terms we get 3M = 2N = 3 × O/2 So. every number is substituted by its sum of digits. Now as there are only 3 generations present. option 1. 2 and 3 are incorrect. Das is one of the members. Option 3: QOPOPQOPQRRQPOOPOROO There is no pattern which is logically consistent with this option. A = 0. Prof. they will encourage their children.IIFT 2011 the next subset and the order is cyclic. i. If we arrange them in alphabetical order. 98. Option 1: AOPOPQOPQRRQPOQPOROO Here. Statement 3 brings ‘law’ in the picture. Let us put the options in the blanks and consider the patterns one by one. even rigid parents will have to agree to educate their children Hence. This means that Tarun and Nuri are siblings. option 4. Tripathy have a north facing flat. 5 we do not get any pattern that is logical. D. F or F. Note: Option 3 is also correct as O is not equal to M. 87.daughter of Mona. option 3. Qureshi and Prof. Chakravarty are members. Equbal is not present in option 1 and option 2 and hence it is not possible. Hence. Even if we divide in the groups of 3. option 1. O > M and N = M. option 2. Usman and Prof. Action 1 would only create unnecessary hype and criticism. The two Professors have to be Prof. Therefore. 4. Hence. Moreover. etc. Hence. Equbal is present. Prof. option 3. 95. Varun is the Grand Father of Tarun. MONKEY = 12141310424. Hence. This also means that Rakesh and Sonalika are married to each other. Even if we divide in the groups of 3. Option 1 has to follow as parents make decisions about their children’s schooling. P < O. Hence. X = 24 and sum of digits of 24 is 6. Since it is known that Prof. Usman also gets a south facing flat. Hence this option is eliminated. In this question every alphabet is substituted by one less than its numerical equivalent. clearly O > N and O is not equal to M. Statement 2 is a perfect action considering the nature of the drought and the damage it can cause. (D. option 3. GOVERNMENT = 7645954552. 4. Once they realize the importance of primary education. Hence. 92. . option 1. It is given that Prof. Sawant are M-PP-02 1B. the upper row corresponds to the houses facing south and the lower row corresponds to the houses facing north. Hence. option 4. Prof. 88. 5 we do not get any pattern that is logical. substituting child labour with a decent compensation will encourage parents to educate their children. F. option 4. Equbal has to be selected in every committee. Hence. Ahuja and Sushil always go together so option 3 is also incorrect. Hence. 91. So. It is a preventive action for the forthcoming predicament. Mona and Varun are married to each other. EXAMINATION = 56149512965. It is also given that Prof. Since parents need their children to work to earn extra income. Option 2 is a direct solution to the problem of poverty in rural areas. Ahuja and Prof. 93. Prof. Equbal and Prof. 97.TestFunda. Statement 3 is also logical. E or E. Prof.10 www. option 3. option 4. B= 1. Once primary education is made compulsory and child labour is banned. Nuri is the grand . Consider the following arrangement ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ Here. 94. Option 2: QOPOPQOPQORQPORPOROO There is no logical pattern which is logically consistent with this option. Rathor gets a south facing flat next to Prof. Usman. Two other members are professors and two are students. Let us analyze the options.

Prof. 99. Prof. Sawant has to be in a north facing flat and so. Purohit and Prof. Purohit has to be in a south facing flat. Tripathy are interchanged.11 www. Prof. Rathor will always be next to Prof. Purohit get south facing flats. Rathor and Prof. M-PP-02 1B. Prof. even if the flats of . Prof. Hence. Usman. option 3. Thus. Usman. option 1.TestFunda. Hence.IIFT 2011 diagonally opposite each other. Consider the solution to the previous question A possible arrangement of the flats is: U R P Q T S Therefore.
