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 European Union’s Ambassador to New Delhi, Joao Cravinho, last week expressed keenness to pursue the India-EU Free Trade Agreement talks. The desire is mutual. Despite the vigorous pace that the Narendra Modi government has marked in the matter of foreign relations in general, this process has remained in suspended animation for two years now. Minister for Commerce and Industry Nirmala Sitharaman had assured the Ambassador in March of India’s willingness to resume talks. As Mr. Cravinho mentioned, the meeting of the OECD countries scheduled for June offers an opportunity for both sides to draw up a road map. The EU identified India as a ‘strategic partner’ in 2004. A Joint Action Plan was signed in 2005 and negotiations on the proposed Broad-based Trade and Investment Agreement (BTIA) were launched in June 2007. Eight years down the line, some contentious issues still remain. In the backdrop of Prime Minister Modi’s visit to France and Germany in April came the cancellation of the India-EU summit, apparently for “logistical” reasons. Issues such as the EU ban on import of mangoes from India announced in May 2014, and the legal proceedings in India involving the Italian Marines, are also factors that have left the relationship strained.

The EU is one of India’s largest trading partners and a major source of FDI. The value of EU-India trade grew from €28.6 billion in 2003 to €72.5 billion in 2014, while trade in commercial services rose from €5.2 billion in 2002 to €23.7 billion in 2013. India has concluded agreements with ASEAN, Japan, Singapore and Korea. With the EU the scale of the deal is more ambitious, and consequently the disagreements. For instance, the EU is unhappy with India’s protectionism in the automobile sector, and wants steep cuts in duties, and tariff cuts in things such as wine, spirits and dairy products. But tariff cuts in the agricultural sector would mean Europe’s heavily subsidised agro industry will dump its surplus here, hitting Indian farmers. India’s generic drug market also raises intellectual property concerns for European pharmaceutical corporations. India, on the other hand, is unhappy with the EU not recognising it as a “data secure nation”, and with what the EU has to offer in the area of IT/BPO/KPO services (Mode 1) and the movement of skilled professionals (Mode 4). But the EU is no doubt keen on partnering with India in programmes such as Make in India, Swachh Bharat and Smart City projects. Another criticism levelled against the FTA talks has been over lack of transparency and inadequate consultations with civil society participants. These concerns will also have to be remedied in future rounds of dialogue. It is to be hoped that the whole process would now gain momentum and lead to a negotiated deal.


4. Which of the following is not true according to the passage?
A) There were some concerns from EU side over Intellectual Property claimed by generic drugs market.
B) India has concluded agreements with ASEAN, Japan, Singapore and Korea
C) With the EU the scale of the deal is more ambitious, and consequently the disagreements

7. Two liquids A and B are mixed together in the ratio 2 : 3. The average cost of liquid B is Rs 30 per liter and the average cost of the mixture is Rs. 25 per liter, then find the average cost of liquid A per liter.



Explanation:

Solution is
Given liquids A and B = 2 : 3
Average cost of mixture = Rs. 25 / liter
Average cost of liquid B = Rs. 30 / liter
Let Average cost of liquid A = x per liter

According to the alligation equation,
( 30 - 25 ) / ( 25 - x ) = 2 / 3
=> 5 / ( 25 - x ) = 2 / 3
=> 5 x 3 / 2 = ( 25 - x )
=> 15 / 2 = 25 - x
=> 7.5 = 25 - x
=> x = 25 - 7.5
x = 17.5
So, Average cost of liquid A =17.5 per liter


Eight friends A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H are sitting in circular arrangements. E is fourth to the right of B. A is to the third right of E. D is between A and F. C is fourth to the left of A. H is between G and C.

8. Find the odd man out.

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

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

10. 50 % of 1250 + 18 % of2200 = ?



Explanation:

50 % of 1250=>50 x 1250/100 = 625 18 % of 2200=>18 x 2200/100 = 396 Adding these two values we get, Ans : 1021


11. Area of the base of a cuboid 9 sq m, area of side face and other side face are 16 sq m and 25 sq m respectively. Find the volume of the cuboid



Explanation:

Solution is :
Let l, b and h be the length, breadth and height of the cuboid respectively.
Given , Area of the base of cuboid = 9 sq.cm
=> l x b = 9
Given , Area of side face of cuboid = 16 m2
=> b x h = 16
Given , Area of other side face of cuboid = 25 m2
=> h x l = 25

Volume of cuboid =l x b x h cu.unit
On multipliying equations
We get lxb x bxh x lxh= 9 x 16 x 25
=> l2 x b2 x h2= 9 x 16 x 25
=> (l x b x h )2 =9 x 16 x 25
=> l x b x h =sqrt{9 x 16 x 25}
= 3 x 4 x 5
= 60
Volume of cuboid = l x b x h = 60 m3

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.
