Answers :-

1.1; Some rings are hollow  –> conversion  –> Some hollow are rings (I) + Only circles are rings –>  conversion   –>  All rings are circles (A) I + A = I = Some hollow are circles. Hence, I follows. But its conversion does not lead to II.

2.4; I + I = No conclusion. Hence, neither conclusion I nor II follows.

3.1; No reply is a question (E) + Some question are answers (I)  =  O*.  i.e.  Some  answers  are  not  reply.  Hence, conclusion I follows. But we can’t proceed further. Hence, II does not follow.

4.5; The possibility exist as there is no negative statement. Again, All liquid are solid (A) + All solid are ice (A) = A (All liquid are ice). All liquid are ice –> conversion –> Some ice are liquid. Hence, II follows.

5.3; They form an I – E. Complementary pair.

(Q. 6-10): The  machine  rearranges  one  word  and  one number in each step. First it rearranges words starting with a consonant  in  reverse  alphabetical  order,  and  then  it rearranges words starting with a vowel in alphabetical order. For  numbers,  it  first  rearranges  composite  numbers  in ascending order, then prime number in descending order.
Input : fire 27 hear 36 national 17 unicorn 18 31 quit owner 23 address 11 earn 32.

Direction (Q. 1 - 10) :  Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Chinese products of comparable quality, novel conception and low prices have been flooding the Indian market. The reasons  for considering manufacturing in  China generally  hinge on reducing manufacturing costs for some products, especially products for the mass market and product lines in order to maintain competitiveness in existing markets. In other cases companies have invested in manufacturing in China. Strategies can also be positioned around reducing component costs in existing or future product lines while retaining research and development, design and other high end manufacturing in India.The differential in price ranges from 20% to as high as 50%. ? Dumping!? Has been the outcry by our businessmen, nurtured over five decades by the license raj, and many industry circles have been clamouring  for protectionism. Conversely, companies are sourcing products for the Indian market from China and some like the Patel Group are proposing to shift their entire operations to China. One of the mainstays of the Chinese strategy of following a mass-production and mass-consumption formula is to keep the profit margins low and cover the gap by the subsequent boost in sales. With think big, think global? As its motto, the huge scale of operations of the Chinese industry is geared towards supplying not only the large domestic market, but also exporting extensively to global markets at cheap rates. When China opened up its economy to foreign investors, it simultaneously provided a significant thrust to the export potential through a judicious mix of state incentives and the free market mechanism. It created Special Economic Zones (SEZs) that were given preferential treatment. The export sector was given a boost by creating an extensive export network and  dismantling impediments to the import of technology. The benefits accruing to Chinese manufacturers are essentially due to seven factors: economies of scale in manufacturing, tariff differentials, lower cost of capital investment, higher labor productivity, lower transaction, power and transportation costs. An oft ignored aspect of the Chinese business  acumens the Chinese manufacturer’s vision to climb up the value chain and China’s competencies in the higher end of the technology spectrum that requires highly skilled labor. The country’s state-level research institutions and major universities have opened research centres and bases that combine production, training and research. China is doing what Japan did in the 1970s and South Korea in the 1980s. An alternative strategy for India could be to concentrate on building competitive advantage in the services and knowledge based  sectors, allowing the Chinese to rule the manufacturing domain.

1. Which of the following best define Special Economic Zones (SEZ) ?
1) Designated areas in countries that possess better economic zones.
2) An act passed by government to support foreign policy.

2) They want to increase their market share only in India.

4) China's manufacturers want to expand  their volume to global markets expertise at unprecedented rates and in surprising ways.
5) All of the above

Directions (Q. 1-5):Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.  To appreciate the challenge that India faces in generating adequate employment over the next three decades, it is useful to examine two scenarios for the worker population ratio (WPR), which is the ratio of workers to the population of men and women. In the first scenario, the WPR remains fixed at the rate estimated by the National Sample Survey in 2011-12 through 2040. In the second scenario, after 2015, the male WPR rises by 2.5% every five years, while the female WPR increases by 5% (due to the much lower current female WPR). Multiplying the WPR by the relevant population statistics gives a reasonable estimate of the number of men and women who might be in the job market up to 2040. The situation looks grim even if the WPR remains fixed. An additional 30 million jobs will need to be created between 2010 and 2015—which will not happen given the depressed economy and that only 2.7 million extra jobs were added between 2004-05 and 2009-10. A s it stands today, India has neither the growth nor the required institutional flexibility to create 6 million extra jobs per year up to 2015 and over 5 million per year from 2015 to 2025. Things get worse under the second scenario, which incorporates the more realistic assumption that, armed with a better education, the percentage of men and women joining the labour force will be higher. Under this setting, India will need to find 44 million additional jobs between 2015 and 2020 at an annual rate of a little less than 9 million. These numbers are not exact, but they underscore the urgent need to create much wider employment in the coming years. There are those who believe that India can never hope to achieve significantly higher employment without the freedom to fire. However, India has reasonable labour market flexibility. The vast unorganized sector, which  accounts for more than 90% of India’s approximately 470 million workers, has no entry or exit barriers. Moreover, the legal constraints that allegedly prevent extra hiring in the organized sector—such as sections 25(N) and 25(O) of the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947, or provisions of the Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act, 1970—are often overstated. No doubt creating legal flexibility can help. But the barriers to employment growth lie in an environment that is increasingly  cramping the country’s growth potential. For example the telecom industry. On 2 February 2012, the Supreme Court of India cancelled 122 mobile telecom licenses allegedly on account of rigging to generate below-market prices. Since then, it has been virtually impossible for the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India and the department of telecommunications to allot additional permits and spectrum. An employment-intensive sector, the slowdown has reduced its growth and its potential for creating additional jobs. There’s a long list of sectors with high employment  elasticity that have slowed on account of lower growth as well as judiciary and regulatory overreach.

1. Why does the author lay emphasis on employment opportunity ?
1) India is facing an alarming situation of widespread unemployment.
2) A large number of people will be employed in coming years.
3) In recent years the problem has become a cause for grave concern as it has started threatening our economic and social fibre.
4) Both 2 and 3
5) All of the above

2. What, according to the author, is/are the factors responsible for employment creation ?
1) Entrepreneurship is a critical factor in the growth of Indian economy.
2) Economic policies of India.
3) Increasing rate of literacy.
4) All of the above
5) None of these

3. Which of the following is an adverse impact of unemployment? Select the most appropriate option in the context of the given passage ?
1) Over a prolonged period of time, this can become quite problematic for rural population.
2) The disruptive element of unemployment can leave tremendously powerful scars on a man's psyche.
3) On a social level, unemployment results in a greater distrust on government.
4) Unemployment can cause a great deal of social stress in terms of questioning job status on a mass scales, which can trigger a drop in consumer spending causing less economic growth.
5) All of the above

4. Which of the following is possibly the most appropriate title for the passage ?
1) Employment vs. Unemployment.
2) Factors affecting employment in India.
3) Problem of tomorrow's India.
4) Employing India.
5) Who creates job ?

5. Which of the following statement is definitely true as given in the passage ?
1) The decline in elasticity has been truly alarming in certain sectors.
2) Across the world, incremental employment demand is slowing quite significantly.
3) The current employment situation will not improve, and India will never generate a demand for labor that is even vaguely in line with its future supply.
4) The cause of unemployment is poverty.
5) None of these
