Question 1

Time: 00:00:00
Read the given facts/passage and answer the question that follows:

1. People are always less happy to accept scientific data they feel contradicts their preconceived beliefs. No surprise here; no human likes to be wrong. But science isn't supposed to care about preconceived notions. Science, at least good science, tells us about the world as it is, and not as some wish it to be. Sometimes what science finds is consistent with a particular religion's wishes. But usually, it is not.

Question: What can be inferred about good science? Select from the given options.

A good science is well received by the educated people.

Question 2

Time: 00:00:00
DIRECTION for the question: Answer the question based on the information given in the passage.
A being whose activities are associated with others has a social environment. What he does and what he can do depend upon the expectations, demands, approvals, and condemnations of others. A being connected with other beings cannot perform his own activities without taking the activities of others into account. For they are the indispensable conditions of the realization of his tendencies. When he moves he stirs them and reciprocally. We might as well try to imagine a businessman doing business, buying and selling, all by himself, as to conceive it possible to define the activities of an individual in terms of his isolated actions. The manufacturer moreover is as truly socially guided in his activities when he is laying plans in the privacy of his own counting-house as when he is buying his raw material or selling his finished goods. Thinking and feeling that have to do with action in association with others is as much a social mode of behavior as is the most overt cooperative or hostile act.

Question:- It can be inferred from the paragraph that:

In our social world, one’s thinking, feelings and actions cannot stand in isolation to actions of others

In our social world, one’s thinking, feelings and actions cannot stand in isolation to actions of others

In our social world, thinking, feelings and actions of an individual are driven by motivations and thoughts of others

Question 3

Time: 00:00:00
DIRECTION for the question: Answer the question based on the information given in the passage.
An increase in the level of serotonin levels in the human body is known to significantly enhance the mood of the person and in some cases, help people overcome depression. Serotonin taken orally does not pass into the pathways of the central nervous system, because it does not cross the blood–brain barrier. However, tryptophan and its metabolite 5-hydroxytryptophan (5- HTP), from which serotonin is synthesized, does cross the blood–brain barrier. These agents are available as dietary supplements, and may be effective serotonergic agents.

Which of the following can be correctly inferred from the statements above?

Individuals who do not consume enough tryptophan can develop depressive tendencies

Individuals who do not consume enough tryptophan can develop depressive tendencies

Individuals who consume tryptophan can metabolize enough serotonin and do not run the risk of depression

Individuals who consume tryptophan can metabolize enough serotonin and do not run the risk of depression

Consumption of serotonin laced foods can help cure depression in some cases

Question 4

Time: 00:00:00
The question has a text portion followed by four alternative summaries. Choose the option that best captures the essence of the text. An increase in the median income of the middle class does not cause average levels of education for the middle class to go up. If they did, then countries with the highest median income of the middle class would also have the highest levels of education for this class. In fact, when the median income of the middle class is made suitably comparable for different countries (accounting for inflation, currency fluctuations and purchasing power parity), there is no such co-relation.

Which of the following can be correctly inferred from the statements above?

Countries with the highest median income of the middle class do not have the highest levels of education for the middle class

Countries with the highest median income of the middle class do not have the highest levels of education for the middle class

It is difficult to reliably compare the education and income levels of one country with another

Question 5

Time: 00:00:00
The body that impacted Earth at the end of the Cretaceous period was a meteorite with a mass of more than a trillion tons and a diameter of at least 10 kilometers. Scientists first identified this impact in 1980 from the worldwide layer of sediment deposited from the dust cloud that enveloped the planet after the impact. This sediment layer is enriched in the rare metal iridium and other elements that are relatively abundant in a meteorite but very rare in the crust of Earth. Even diluted by the terrestrial material excavated from the crater, this component of meteorites is easily identified. By 1990 geologists had located the impact site itself in the Yucatán region of Mexico. The crater, now deeply buried in sediment, was originally about 200 kilometers in diameter.

Question: Which of the following can be inferred from the paragraph about the location of the meteorite impact in Mexico?

The location of the impact site in Mexico was kept secret by geologists from 1980 to 1990.

Question 7

Time: 00:00:00
The most recent case of euthanasia in India was that of a Mumbai couple who approached the courts to seek medical termination of a pregnancy after the legally permissible abortion time limit had been crossed. According to the parents, the foetus had been detected to have serious disabilities which would affect the quality of life of the child if born. The court denied them permission, giving its own logic underlining the unborn baby’s right to live despite disabilities. Fortunately or unfortunately, the issue was resolved in a different way when the mother suffered a miscarriage a little later and lost the baby.

Globally, in a landmark case, a British teenage girl won the right to die the way she wants. Terminally ill Hanah Jones, just 13 years old, has spent much of the past eight years in hospital wards undergoing treatment for leukaemia. Euthanasia is complex because the issue is attached to ending life, voluntarily. Surprisingly, today it has been legalised only in a handful of countries. But here too and elsewhere the many forms of euthanasia have been taken into consideration.

The Mumbai couple approached the court because the courts have the authority to sanction euthanasia. Hence, the inference is definitely true?
