The passage given below is followed by a set of questions. Choose the most appropriate answer to each question.
Which of these statements would the author disagree with?
1) It is important for food to remain fresh as long as possible, while it is in stores or in our pantries.

2) If people ate what they grew themselves and/or ate only locally grown food, the need for food packaging would be reduced.

d
3) It would be more environmentally friendly for people to stop wasting food, rather than condemning food packaging.

ite
4) As long as the food within a package is consumed fully, the waste caused by food packaging can be reduced.

m
Explanation:
From the second paragraph, we can infer that the author thinks that extending the shelf life of food is a good thing; this is what is stated in

Li
[1] (in different words). [2] can be inferred from the first sentence of paragraph 3 (though the author admits that this is not a realistic
scenario, there is no doubt he considers it desirable). [3] is the point the author makes in paragraph 5, especially the last sentence. So the

e
author would agree with options [1], [2] and [3]. On the other hand, he would not agree with [4]: consuming the food within a package

would result in less waste caused by discarded food, but it would not reduce the amount of packaging used. Hence, [4].

consider this a positive trait. So A is incorrect. Statements B, C and E are clearly stated in the second paragraph. D is the point made in

Question: 71
The passage given below is followed by a set of questions. Choose the most appropriate answer to each question.
The interest in terrorism is centrally due to its involving a particularly distasteful subset of what is already a fairly distasteful group of
human actions, namely violent ones. Which ones are they?
The term ‘violence’ has known ambiguities. A murderer who stabs or shoots his victim has performed a violent act, certainly. But should
we say the same thing of a murderer who lulls his victim to permanent slumber with a gentle and pleasant-tasting poison? Does the victim

Login ID:06A42050/Student Name:ANANDASHOKKUMAR/Overall Score:129

of a would-be murderer who defends himself by killing his assailant commit violence? I will not attempt to capture the precise nuances of
ordinary language here, but instead simply identify as ‘violence’ those intentional human acts whose immediate aim is the infliction of pain,
bodily harm, damage, severe distress, or death on other persons. Law enforcers who shoot and kill in the course of their duties, however
justified in doing so, will be said in this sense to have defended themselves with violence – probably not something that would ordinarily
be said. Thus violence may, in principle, be either unjustified or justified, either evil or good in its upshot; calling an act ‘violence’ does not
morally judge it, in the usage adopted here.
To term terrorist acts a ‘subset’ of violent ones may be misleading in one major respect. Much of what is generally regarded as terrorism
consists not directly in the performance of violent acts but in the threat of such performance. I consider those threats as cases of terrorism,
even if none of the threatened violence actually occurs.

d
Terrorist violence has two further features of special interest. It is (1) politically motivated and (2) directed at persons who are threatened
not on their own accounts, but with a view to influencing further persons, in particular those with power, official or otherwise, to affect the

ite
political arrangements of the community in question. Terrorist victims are ‘innocent’, in this sense.
A third feature often associated with terrorism will not be regarded as part of the definition here: namely, that it is performed by persons in

m
an ‘unofficial’ capacity. I will instead take it that terrorism can also be practised by armed soldiers of an established government, police

Li
officers or other agents of purportedly legitimate governments. Indeed, it may be that by far the greatest proportion of the acts in question
is so performed. But the problems involved in dealing with terrorism of that kind are considerably more difficult, than those involved in

e
responding to terrorism by privateers or ‘insurgents’, as Alex Schmid and Janny de Graf usefully term them. In fact, much insurgent

at
terrorism has been regarded by its practitioners as a reasonable response to what they perceive to be a sort of state terrorism practised
by those they are opposing.

iv
The difference between state terrorism and insurgent terrorism is that states use terrorism in order to prevent changes in the currently
prevailing political arrangements, whereas insurgents use it in order to effect changes in them. But the strategy is the same. What
Pr
distinguishes terrorism is that its victims are distinct from (though not necessarily discrete from, for they may be included in) the set of
persons whose actions the terrorists are trying to influence. For this reason, the victim has little or no influence on the conduct of his

Which of the following is not one of the essential elements in the author’s definition of an act of violence?
1) The act must be intentionally committed by a human.
ou

2) The act must be morally justified in the perception of the perpetrator.
es

3) The immediate aim of the act is to inflict pain, harm or distress.

4) The act can result in the death of the victim.
R

Explanation:
Refer to the second paragraph. Options [1], [3] and [4] are clearly stated in the author’s definition of violent acts. However, the author says
ng

that the morality of the act has no bearing on whether or not it can be considered as an act of violence. Hence, [2].

The passage given below is followed by a set of questions. Choose the most appropriate answer to each question.
What is terrorists’ relation to their victims, as per this passage?
Le

1) The victims of terrorists have practically no influence on the behaviour of their attackers.

2) The victims of terrorists are always distinct from the set of people that the terrorists are trying to influence.
S

3) Terrorists prefer to choose innocent victims, because they use people as ‘mere means’ to an end.
IM

4) The victims of terrorists are threatened with violence, even though that violence never actually occurs.
Explanation:
Refer to the last paragraph. The victims of terrorists are said to be usually distinct from the set of people that the terrorists are trying to
influence, but the two sets may sometimes overlap. So [2] is incorrect. While terrorists’ victims are said to be ‘innocent’ and ‘mere means’,
there is no suggestion in the passage that the terrorists ‘prefer’ to choose them for this reason, so [3] is wrong as well. In the third
paragraph, the author states that he considers people threatened by terrorists to be their victims, even if the threatened violence never
actually occurs; however, [4] distorts this to suggest that the violence never occurs, so it is incorrect. Only [1] is correct, as stated in the

Question: 73
The passage given below is followed by a set of questions. Choose the most appropriate answer to each question.
How does state terrorism differ from insurgent terrorism?
1) The state can mask its terrorism with a cloak of legitimacy, while insurgents cannot.

2) The state uses terrorism to maintain the political status quo, while insurgents use it to change it.

3) Insurgent terrorism is regarded by its practitioners as a reasonable response to the terrorism practised by the state.

immediately. While [3] is stated in the same paragraph, it does not really answer the question, as it does not mention a specific difference
between the two types of terrorism. [1] may be true, but it cannot be inferred from the passage. Only [2] – which is a paraphrase of the first

Explanation:
Refer to paragraph 2. The author makes it clear that only acts committed by human beings can be considered ‘violence’. So [i] can be
ng

immediately ruled out. The author also considers an act whose ‘immediate aim’ is to cause harm, distress, etc. to be violence. This is not
the case with [iv]: simply carrying a hidden weapon does not mean that it will be used; carrying a weapon is not an act of violence, but
ni

using it is. So [i] and [iv] are not acts of violence. On the other hand, [ii] definitely is, as the author makes it clear that whether or not an act
is morally justifiable, it is still considered violence in his definition; and that the deliberate infliction of pain and harm is considered violence
ar

even if it does not involve death. For similar reasons, [iii] is also an act of violence: the doctor deliberately killed the patient, even if it was

for a morally justifiable reason. Therefore, both [ii] and [iii] are acts of violence, based on the author’s definition. Hence, [2].
