Directions (3-6): Study the following passage and answer the questions based on the given statements:
Bumblebees exposed to the insecticide imidacloprid tend to contribute less to the welfare of their colony than untreated bees, according to a report in Science today. Inside their nests, bees chronically eating this common pesticide were less active, didn’t care for larvae as much or pitch in on maintaining the nest, and had fewer social interactions, the researchers found.
“It’s very fascinating and gives us a much greater understanding of the mechanism behind the patterns that we’ve seen of reduced [bee] colony growth and reproduction,” says biologist MajRundlof of Lund University in Sweden who was not involved in the research.
Imidacloprid is one of a class of neonicotinoid neurotoxic insecticides that were developed during the 1980s and 1990s and are now “absolutely pervasive globally,” says biologist James Crall, a postdoc in the lab of Benjamin de Bivort at Harvard University, who led the research. In an agricultural context, neonicotinoids are most commonly applied to seeds in high concentrations, so that they pervade and protect the whole plant, explains Crall. “The problem with that is that it also gets into nectar and pollen on which bees and other beneficial insects feed,” he says.
3) Which of the following is an inference which can be made from the facts stated in the above paragraph?
a) Neonicotinoid is a kind of neurotoxic that triggers the crop production and reproduction of Bumblebees in a positive scale.
b) Imidacloprid alters the pattern of Bumblebees and it leads to less colony growth.
c) Bumblebees exposed to Imidacloprid are more active than untreated bees.
d) Reduction in the crop production due to use of Imidacloprid.
e) None of these
4) Which of the following conclusions can be drawn from the facts stated in the above paragraph?
a) Now honeyproduction will never face a crisis like the crisis of 1980s due to the use of Imidacloprid.
b) Pesticide Exposure Alters Bumblebees’ Behaviour in Their Nests.
c) Neonicotinoids are most commonly applied to seeds in high concentrations, so that they pervade and protect the whole plant.
d) Maize growers are no more interested in the production of maize.
e) None of these
5) What we can say about the following statement?
“It’s very fascinating and gives us a much greater understanding of the mechanism behind the patterns that we’ve seen of reduced (bee) colony growth and reproduction”
a) Really impressive and the technology has proven ahead of lives
b) Definitely false and it is not necessary to find the mechanism behind bee colony by sparing the lives
c) Probably true
d) The technology driven changes are much more needed to reduce the growth of bee colonies.
e) Nothing can be said
6) Which of the following could be the course of actiondrawn from the facts stated in the above paragraph?
a) Govt should increase the subsidy on cash crops including apiculture
b) The Studies should be carried out to examine how nicotinoids might positively induce the growth of crops.
c) Banning the use of certain neonicotinoids, including imidacloprid, on all outdoor crops.
d) Govt should plan to import more crops from abroad rather than sparing the ecosystem.
e) None of these
Directions (7-10): Study the following information and answer the questions given below.
When rectangle is in unit digit its value is 2 and when it is in tens digit its value is thrice of 2 which is 6; when it is in hundredth place, thrice of 6 which is 18 and so on.
7) How will you represent ‘208’ in this code language?
8) What will be the sum of digit of numerical value for the code ?
9) What will be the product of numerical value for the code and ?
10) What will be the resultant of the following code given below ?
1) Answer: d)
From the given statements, we can infer that the person should fit the profile to be CFO. Also, we could assume that Nilanjan Roymight be a proper replacement for JayeshSanghrajka. From the paragraph we can conclude that Infosys Ltd needs a CFO.
So, Option (D) is the correct choice.
2) Answer: c)
From the given statements, we can assume that the cost of living in Mumbai is high when compared with National Capital; as the fuel prices are high it affects the local commodity market in large scale which in turn increases the cost of living. Also, we can infer that it leads to increase in price of certain commodities.
Among the given statements, none of the statement could be the conclusion of the above paragraph.
So, Option (C) is the correct choice.
3) Answer: b)
From the above paragraph, only option (b) can be inferred. All other statements were opposite to the context.
4) Answer: b)
From the above paragraph we can conclude that use of Imidacloprid brings negative effect in the lifecycle of Bumblebees. So, Option (b) is the conclusion.
5) Answer: b)
The statement says that it is really fascinating that the use ofImidacloprid helps us to study the mechanism behind the patterns of Bumblebee lifecycle. Only option (b) is relevant and can be concluded from the paragraph with respect to the given statement.
6) Answer: c)
From the above Paragraph, we can conclude that using of Imidacloprid alters the lifecycle of Bumblebee which in fact reduces the growth and reproduction of Bumblebee. So, only option (c), could be the course of action that should be taken.
7) Answer: b)
Clearly, option B represents ‘208’ in given code language as follow:
8) Answer: d)
Clearly, required sum of digit = (2 + 0 + 8 + 6) = 16.
9) Answer: c)
10) Answer: d)
