Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below. Certain words/phrases have been printed in bold to help you locate them.

The recurrence of a major earthquake on May 12 — this time measuring 7.3 on the Richter scale — with its epicentre near Kodari in Nepal, barely a fortnight after the devastating temblor in the landlocked country, has once again raised questions about preparedness for such disasters in the subcontinent. India is divided into five seismic zones, with Zone 5 being the most active and earthquake-prone. The Himalayan regions, the Assam and Burma region, and the Bhuj region in the west fall in this category. While the time of occurrence of a big earthquake cannot be predicted accurately with existing technology, the foreknowledge of potential danger areas can help mitigate the impact of a disaster. The reason for earthquakes occurring in Nepal is knvvown: the movement of the Indian tectonic plate against the Eurasian plate. Along the Himalayas lie two fault-lines: the Main Boundary Thrust and the Main Central Thrust. Running parallel to the Himalayan ranges to a width of 100 km to 120 km, this region has a history of earthquakes. In the last 120 years, there have been four major events: 1897 (Shillong), 1905 (Himachal Pradesh, Kangra), 1934 (Nepal-Bihar border), 1950 (Arunachal Pradesh, then a part of the North East Frontier Agency or NEFA).

The movement of the Indian tectonic plate against the Eurasian plate has created accumulated stress. This stress is released in a manner that makes predicting earthquakes impossible. When a major event happens, part of the stress is released at that point but accumulates in a different part of the belt. Thus there is no natural escape for the region from susceptibility to earthquakes. The best-laid plans for disaster mitigation following quakes can go awry, but some lessons can be learnt from the past. However, as the gap between the occurrence of major earthquakes in a given region could stretch over more than a lifespan, memories can fade and mitigation plans may not be grounded in lived experience. The real advancement that has been made recently in India is, for instance, the setting up of many seismological stations, especially after the Bhuj earthquake of 2001. Measurements from these stations and global positioning system data now tell us the Indian plate is moving north at a speed of 5 metres a year. This would contribute to stress accumulation and to seismic activity even in Zones 2, 3 and 4. We need to accept earthquakes as a reality and do everything in our power to redefine development plans, especially in terms of building quake-resistant buildings. There should be systematic resort to “disaster drills” to educate the public on what to do during an earthquake. Preparedness is the key to managing any more such disasters.

1. Which of the following is the synonym of the word “Thrust”?

2. Which command allows you to reduce fragments of file and optimize the performance of disk ?

3. Find the value of 0.02x0.02 + 1.22x1.22 - 2x0.0244 = ?


Solution is
Formula reference : a2 + b2 - 2 x a x b = ( a - b )2

= 0.02x0.02 + 1.22x1.22 - 2 x 0.0244
= (0.02)2+(1.22)2 - 2 x (0.02) x (1.22)
= (1.22 - 0.02)2
= (1.2)2
Answer is 1.44

4. The manager humiliated Charlie in the presence of his colleagues.

Conclusion I : The manager did not like Charlie.

Conclusion II : Charlie was not popular with his colleagues.


Solution is
  • The manager might have humiliated Charlie not because of his dislike but on account of certain negligence or mistake on his part.
  • So, I does not follow. Also, nothing about Charlie's rapport with his colleagues can be deduced from the statement.
  • So, II also does not follow.

5. Find the value of 0.45x0.45 + 2.55x2.55 + 2x1.1475 = ?


Solution is
Given 0.45x0.45 + 2.55x2.55 + 2x1.1475
Formula reference : a2 + b2 + 2 x a x b = ( a + b )2
= ( 0.45 )2+ ( 2.55 )2+2 x ( 0.45 ) x ( 2.55 )
= ( 0.45 + 2.55 )2
= ( 3 )2
= 9
Answer is 9

A + B means A is father of B
A – B means A is wife of B
A x B means A is the brother of B
A ÷ B means A is the daughter of B

6. If P + Q ÷ R then which of the following is true ?

So P is husband of R

7. Find the value of 0.37x0.37 + 1.63x1.63 + 2x0.6031 = ?


0.37x0.37 + 1.63x1.63 + 2x0.6031 = (0.37)^2+(1.63)^2+2 x (0.37) x (1.63) = (0.37 + 1.63)^2 =(2)^2=4 Formula reference : a^2 + b^2 + 2 x a x b = ( a + b )^2

18. What would be the compound interest accrued on an amount of 14000 Rs. at the end of 3 years at the rate of 5 % per annum ?


principal = 14000
No. of years = 3
Rate of interest = 5
Amount = P x (1+r/100)n
we get Amount = 14000 x (1+5/100)3
= 14000 x (105 / 100)3
= 14000 x (21 / 20)3
= 14000 x (9261 / 8000)
= 64827 / 4
= 16206.75
compound interest = Amount - principal
= 16206.75 - 14000
= 2206.75

Ans : 2206.75

Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions. It seemed interesting that on the eve of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s departure for France, the Indian and French governments issued similar statements on the prospects of an agreement on the purchase of the Rafale aircraft: that no single deal should be allowed to overshadow the Prime Minister’s visit. Indeed, India-France relations are much bigger than any one contract; they represent the cultural affinity and historic relations between two vibrant democracies. The items on the Prime Minister’s agenda reflected the range of commonalities — from the preservation of ancient architecture to the development of Puducherry and Chandigarh as smart cities; from the construction of semi-high-speed railway lines to cooperation on a space mission to Mars; from discussing anti-terror training to tackling climate change through renewable technologies and a robust nuclear partnership. The economic aspect of the relationship has been ignored for too long. Although more than a thousand French companies have a total investment of about $20 billion in India, bilateral trade is worth just $8 billion. While all this deserved attention, it was disappointing that the Prime Minister put the spotlight back on defence ties by making a surprise announcement on the purchase of 36 Rafale aircraft as the highlight of his talks with President François Hollande. If the outright purchase was a crucial military necessity, it could have been discussed a few weeks before or after the visit, as a political push for the deal was secondary to the technical specifications and delivery requirements. Moreover, the deal, which involves purchasing products off the shelf abroad, detracts from Mr. Modi’s “Make in India” initiative. The breakthrough on the Areva nuclear equipment deal, on the other hand, shows the positive outcome of Mr. Modi’s and Mr. Hollande’s political push, combined with a “Make in India” twist. As in the case of Indo-U.S. nuclear negotiations, Mr. Modi and Mr. Hollande decided to clear the logjam by splitting the problem into different silos — allowing for separate mechanisms for the pricing issues and for the technical and legal aspects. The supplementary deal involving Areva and L&T producing heavy forging metal casing for nuclear reactors is an important step in localising some of the expensive parts. During his visit to Canada, where he hopes to sign a deal for uranium supplies, Mr. Modi means to take forward his plan to increase nuclear energy production. Given this objective, it may be useful for him to round off the visit by discussing his nuclear energy plans in Germany as well, which is now winding down on nuclear power but is at the cutting edge of nuclear safety research for the European Pressurised Reactors that are being considered for India. 

21. Which of the following is the meaning of the word ‘Logjam’?

22. Which of the following insurance is mainly used for leased cars ?

29. Speed of a man is 8 Km/hr in still water. If the rate of current is 3 Km/hr, find the effective speed of the man in upstream ?


Solution is

Speed of the boat = 8 km/hr
Speed of the current = 3 km/hr
Speed of the man in Upstream = Boat Speed - Current Speed
= ( 8 - 3 ) km/hr
= 5 km/hr
Answer is 5
