Test-II: English Language
Directions (Q. 51-70): Read the passage carefully
and answer the questions given below it. Certain words/
phrases are given in bold to help you locate them while
answering some of the questions.
In spite of its well-deserved reputation as one of the
worlds leading information technology and software

development hubs, India is far from being the connected


society many foreigners imagine...
Today India, with a population of 1.2 billion people,
has more than 600 million mobile-phone users but only
about 150 million people regularly connect to the internet.
In 2011, Indias internet penetration rate (the percentage of
the population using the internet) was 11%, according to
the International Telecommunication Union. Thats far
below that of developed nations, where penetration rates
average 70%, and less than a third of Chinas penetration
ratio of 38%. Its also less than half the penetration rates
for all developing countries, which average 24%. The
number of Indias broadband users, 20 million, is even
smaller. By any reasonable definition, India is an internet
laggard. The internet in India today feels a little like where
it was in America in about 1994 four years before Google
was even born.
The good news is that theres tremendous potential
for increased internet penetration to have a positive impact
on Indias economy and society. India is on the cusp of a
connectivity revolution. India has the chance to leapfrog
its current connectivity challenges, bring internet access
to a majority of its citizens and even raise its penetration
ratio to 60% or 70% within the next five to ten years.
Connecting its next 500 million will make India the largest
open-access internet market in the world. In 10 years time,
it will be almost impossible for any child in India to imagine
what life was like before the internet. But to realise that
promise, India must make the right technology choices.
One key choice will be how and how quickly India
builds out the fixed-line networks in its cities and towns.
Fibre-optic cables are, by far, the best way to promote higher
connectivity. You want to bury them underground in every
place you can: every road, every path, every ditch, every
piece of land... A second area to get right is cellular
technology. India should make the transition from 2G and
3G to 4G technology as quickly as possible because 4G
makes far more efficient use of the spectrum and users can
get so much more bandwidth out of it. It may take time for
India to achieve these two goals because its
telecommunications industry is undercapitalised and has
a lot of debt. But I am confident that eventually the
transformation will happen.
Investing in a bigger, faster telecommunications
network will have a big payoff for India as that network
combines with one of the most radically life-altering
developments of the last decade: the emergence of
moderately priced mobile devices.
India is sure to witness a customer-driven revolution
on a scale weve never seen before in education, financial
services, health care, entertainment, and almost every
conceivable aspect of life. In education alone, the
possibilities are staggering. Parents who believe their
children are not getting proper instruction in local schools

will be able to use mobile phones or tablets to help fulfil


their kids educational needs. Great teachers can connect
to children in remote villages. Indian students can watch
Ivy League professors on YouTube or share knowledge
and ideas by video chat with experts or other students
thousands of kilometres away.
Similar changes are in store for banking and financial
services. India has a huge number of people whose banking
needs are underserved. The governments Unique
Identification project, led by Nandan Nilekani, is creating
enormous new possibilities for e-commerce. Already were
seeing the emergence of many new start-ups created to help
middle-and lower-income consumers move money around,
and because of the sheer scale of the market in India, these
new businesses are likely to be highly profitable.
The creative potential of Indias people can be seen in
Silicon Valley, where India-born entrepreneurs account for
40% of startups. Just think what will happen when Indias
entrepreneurial innovators are able to create great global
companies without leaving their country. Theyll change
the world.
Hundreds of large firms focused on the internet will
be founded and will succeed by focusing purely on Indian
consumers, Indian taste, Indian style, Indian sports. Can
one of those companies ultimately become the next Google?
Of course. That may not happen for quite a few years. But
if India plays its cards right, well soon see Indian engineers
and small businesses tackling Indian problems first, then
exporting the solutions that work best.
Internet freedom will produce information and images
that are displeasing, even appalling to many segments of
society. False accusations and hateful commentary are
inevitable, if unfortunate, components of the internet mix.
But trying to control what people say is a losing
proposition. It is much better to let good speech overwhelm
bad speech, using the kinds of principles that have worked
reasonably well on the free and open internet we enjoy in
the US and other developed countries.
Having witnessed Indias progress over the past
decade, it is hard not to be optimistic about the next 10
years. Global success and a vast improvement in living
conditions for hundreds of millions of its citizens are within
the countrys grasp, but only if Indias leaders invest in
the right infrastructure and embrace the transparency and
openness of the internet.
51. Why is the author hopeful that investing in a bigger
telecom network will pay a handsome dividend to
India?
1) Because of easy availability of cheaper Chinese
mobile phones in India

In the rearrangement, numbers are arranged
according to the sum of the digits of the
