In a sense the university had failed. It has stores great quantities of knowledge; it teaches more
people; and despite its failures, it teaches them better.__D___ . Of the great branches of knowledge-
the sciences the social sciences and humanities- the science are applied. Strenuous and occasionally
successful efforts are made to apply the social sciences, not almost never are the humanities well
applied. We do not use philosophy in defining our conduct. __E__. The great task of the university in
the next generation is to learn to use the knowledge we have for the questions that come before us.
__F___ The difference between a primary problem
and a secondary or even tertiary problem is that primary problems tend to be around for a long time,
whereas
the less important ones get solved.

One primary problem is that of interfering with biological development. ___A____. Obviously, there are
benefits both to individuals and to society from eliminating, or at least improving, mentally and
physically deformed persons. On the other hand, there could be very serious consequences if this
knowledge were used with premeditation to produce superior and subordinate classes, each
genetically prepared to carry out a predetermined mission. __B___, Here we have a primary problem
that will still exist when we are all dead. Of course, the traditional faculty members would say.
“__C____”. And certainly they would not learn, but they would learn some other things.
48

A. The next generation, and perhaps this one, will be able to interfere chemically with the actual
development of an individual and perhaps biologically by interfering with an individual’s genes.
B. This can be done, but what happens to free will and he rights of the individual
C. But the students won’t learn enough to go to graduate school
D. It is in the application of this knowledge that the failure has come.
E. We do not use literature as a source of real and vicarious experience.
F. The university should organize should organize courses around primary problems
G. The universities greatest shortcoming is not to help students see the relevance of humanities to
real problems.
H. It is difficult for modern students, accustomed to the minute of film, to appreciate opera.
I. It is necessary students to require to include in their curricula liberal arts courses.

basis of the information provided in the passage.
Educational planning should aim at meeting the educational needs of the entire population of all age
groups. While the traditional structure of education as a three layer hierarchy from the primary stage
to the university represents the core, we should not overlook the periphery which is equally important.
Under modern conditions, workers need to rewind, or renew their enthusiasm, or strike out in a new
direction, or improve their skills as much as any university professor. The retired and the aged have
their needs as well. Educational planning, in their words, should take care of the needs of everyone.
Our structures of education have been built up on the assumption that there is a terminal point to
education. This basic defect has become all the more harmful today, A UNESCO report entitled
'Learning to Be' prepared by Edger Faure and others in 1973 asserts that the education of children
must prepare the future adult for various forms of self-learning. A viable education system of the
future should consist of modules with different kinds of functions serving a diversity of constituents.
53

And performance, not the period of study, should be the basis for credentials. The writing is already
on the wall.
In view of the fact that the significance of a commitment of lifelong learning and lifetime education is
being discussed only in recent years even in educationally advanced countries, The possibility of the
idea becoming an integral part of educational thinking seems to be a far cry. For, to move in that
direction means such more than some simple rearrangement of the present organisation of education.
But a good begining can be made by developing open university programmes for older learners of
different categories and introducing extension services in the conventional colleges and schools. Also
these institutions should learn to co-operate with the numerous community organizations such as
libraries, museums, municipal recreational programmes, health services etc.
21. What is the main thrust of the author ?

basis of the information provided in the passage.
Amnesty International's charge that 'tens of thousands' of political prisoners, including prisoners of
conscience, are languishing in Indian jails and that prisoners are routinely tortured in this country has
to be seen in a much wider context than the organisation's annual report cares to do. In its overall
appraisal of 151 countries, Amnesty has accused 112 of torturing prisoners, 63 of harboring prisoners
of conscience, 61 of resorting to political killings and 53 of detaining people without a trial. Of these
apparently overlapping categories, India seems to have been excluded from the list of the 61 which
undertake political killings. The report has however, pointed out that scores of people in India die of
torture in police and military custody and that many also simply disappear. Clearly, only a thin line
separates the 61 charged with political murder from the rest. Before coming to such conclusions,
however, it may also be necessary to classify the various countries according to their political systems.
Torture by the security forces and killings at the behest of the government make no difference to the
victims whether they are in a democratic country or a totalitarian one. It is also nobody's case that a
democratic country is less culpable than a dictatorship in the event of human rights violations. But the
point perhaps still needs to be made that torture or 'disappearances' represent a failure of the system
in a democracy in contrast to being an integral part of state policy in a country ruled by an autocrat
who is answerable to no one.
India may be guilty of keeping 'tens of thousands' behind bars and of the other human rights abuses
mentioned by qualitatively different place from a totalitarian country. It is in this respect that Amnesty
has been lass than fair. It has chosen to ignore the distinctions between the good, the bad and the
ugly. The openness of Indian society will be evident to anyone who spends half an hour in one of its
chaotic market-places or visits the law courts or watches a political rally or reads a newspaper
or strikes up a conversation with any person on the roads. There is no sense of fear in India, as in a
dictatorship. There is also scope for securing relief from the heavy-handed behaviour of the
authorities, even if the human rights commission has not yet lived up to expectations. Unless such
points are recognised, Amnesty's assessment will seem to be a dry recital of statistics which
may pillory India simply because of its larger population. Mercifully, Amnesty nowadays at least notes
that the terrorists also indulge in human rights violations and that India has to cope with several
insurgencies fomented by a country where the military does not always seem to be under the control
of the elected government. True, there is much that is the way the terrorist challenge is activating the
self-correcting mechanism within a democracy and not merely on painting a grim, even biased picture.

of the information provided in the passage.
Recent advances in science and technology have made it possible for geneticists to to find out
abnormalities in the unborn foetus and take remedial action to rectify some defects which would
otherwise prove to be fatal to the child. Though genetic engineering is still at its infancy, scientists can
now predict with greater accuracy a genetic disorder. It is not yet in a position to predict when exactly
a genetic disorder will set in. While they have not yet been able to change the genetic order of the
gene in germs, they are optimistic and are holding out that in the near future they might be successful
in achieving this feat. They have, however, acquired the ability in manipulating tissue cells. However,
genetic mis-information can sometimes be damaging for it may adversely affect people
psychologically. Genetic information may lead to a tendency to brand some people as inferiors.
Genetic information can therefore be abused and its application in deciding the sex of the foetus and
its subsequent abortion is now hotly debated on ethical lines. But on this issue geneticists cannot
besquarely blamed though this charge has often been levelled at them. It is mainly a societal
problem. At present genetic engineering is a costly process of detecting disorders but scientists hope
to reduce the costs when technology becomes more advanced. This is why much progress in this
area has been possible in scientifically advanced and rich countries like the U.S.A, U.K and Japan. It
remains to be seen if in the future this science will lead to the development of a race of supermen or
will be able to obliterate disease from this world.

Section 3: Critical reasoning (12 questions, 30 minutes)
Directions 1-12: Answer the questions given below the passage or statement as true, false or can't
say.
Passage: Glaciers begin to form where snow remains year-round and enough of it accumulates to
transform into ice. New layers of snow compress the previous layers and this compression forces the
icy snow to re-crystallize, forming grains similar in size and shape to cane sugar. Gradually the grains
grow larger and the air pockets between the grains get smaller, meaning that the snow slowly
becomes more dense. After about two winters, the snow turns into firn, an intermediate state between
snow and ice. Over time the larger ice crystals become more compressed and even denser, this is
known as glacial ice. Glacial ice, because of its density and ice crystals, often takes a bluish or even
green hue.
Answer questions 1- 5 based on passage.
1. Glaciers cannot form where snow does not remain all year round.
A. True B. False C. Can't say
Ans: A
2. Firn is less dense than snow but more dense than ice

Passage: A power of attorney or letter of attorney in common law systems or mandate in civil law
systems is an authorization to act on someone else's behalf in a legal or business matter. The person
authorizing the other to act is the "principal" or "grantor", and the one authorized to act is the "agent" or
"attorney-in-fact". The attorney-in-fact acts "in the principal's name," signing the principal's name to
documents and filing suit with the principal's name as plaintiff, for example.
As one kind of agent, an attorney-in-fact is a fiduciary for the principal, so the law requires an attorney-
in-fact to be completely honest with and loyal to the principal in their dealings with each other. If the
attorney-in-fact is being paid to act for the principal, the contract is a separate matter from the power of
attorney itself, so if that contract is in writing, it is a separate document, kept private between them,
whereas the power of attorney is intended to be shown to various other people.
The power of attorney may be oral, such as asking someone else to sign your name on a cheque
because your arm is broken, or may be in writing. Many institutions, such as hospitals, banks, and the
I.R.S., require a power of attorney to be in writing before they will honor it, and they usually want to
keep an original for their records.
Answer questions 6-10 based on passage.
6. The agent grants the principal the power to act on behalf of the grantor.
A. True B. False C. Can't say
Ans: B
7. All contracts between the principal and the agent must be made public.

Ans: B
8. The power of attorney may be granted verbally.
A. True B. False C. Can't say
Ans: A
9. Only a legal professional can be granted the power of attorney.

A leading Indian industrialist in a recent article on ways to strengthen India's economy has drawn
attention to the problems of inflation and industrial sickness among other things. One of the main

holders. The planning horizon has hardly ever exceeded five years. Investmentshave been
inadequate for new plants and towards diversification and expansions. Modernisation and asset
creation has seriously lagged behind. In business, growth is needed for survival; one has to grow if
one does not want to be wiped out This is particularly true today with liberalisation of imports and
increasing competition. More over, growth and higher productivity createemployment and higher
employment creates larger markets both for industrial and consumer products. It was Hentry Ford
who brought home the need for the creation of larger and a more stable middle class, that is, a larger
number of people who can afford more and more of goods and services. Even after forty years of
independence our industrialists have not been able to shedthe petty shopkeeper's mentality and our

Nature is like business. Business sense dictates that we guard our capital and live from the interest.
Nature's capital is the enormous diversity of living things. Without it, we cannot feed
ourselves, cure ourselves of illness or provide industry with the raw materials of wealth creation.
Professor Edward Wilson, of Harvard University says," The folly our descendants are least likely to
forgive us is the ongoing loss of genetic and spices diversity. This will take millions of years to
correct".
Only 150 plant species have ever been widely cultivated. Yet over 75000 edible plants are known in
the wild. In a hungry world, with a population growing by 90 million each year, so
much wasted potential in tragic. Medicines from the wild are worth around 40 billion dollars a year.
Over 5000 species are known to yield chemical with cancer fighting potential Scientists currently
estimate that the total number of species in the world is between 10-30 million with only around 1.4
million identified.
The web of life is torn when mankind exploits natural resources in short-sighted ways. The trade in
tropical hardwoods can destroy whole forests to extract just a few commercially attractive specimens.
Bad agricultural practice triaggers 24 billion tonnes of top soil erosion a year losting the equivalent of 9
million tonnes of grain output. Cutting this kind of unsuitable exploitation and instituting "sustainable
utilisation" will help turn the environmental crisis around.
