  1. Indian villages :: our strength or our weakness?
    i. The gdp of India consists of agriculture industry and services sector where in the first 2 sectors rural population contribute the most. The Rural population is engaged in agriculture which feeds all of us. Rural India maintains India’s ecology. But due to govt negligence towards rural population, it could not reveal its true potential. If given proper education infrastructure and healthcare facilities these rural population can catapult into the robust workforce for prime minister’s make in India initiative.
    ii. They are the base of Indian Culture. They are not useless but the only thing is that they are used less. Low literacy rate does not mean that the villagers are illiterate but the only thing is that they are not given chance to show their talent otherwise they also have a key role in the progress of the nation. If India has to develop they must develop and their lost culture need to explore as much as we can. So, let us lend a helping hand in the development of these which will ultimately lead to the development of our nation.

  2. Borderless World: A Threat?
    i. If there is no mutual understanding between countries or the two countries are enemy of each other. But at the same time if the countries go along with each other well and there are no serious disputes between country than borderless world is a great idea.
    ii. Borders are made to divide the region and controlled by government for eg India is a country which is divided into states like MP, Delhi, Punjab etc, These states are further divided into cities which are further divided into towns, tehsils, Villages and are governed by president, PM, CM, Mayor, Head of panchayat. Have you ever thought why we need such divisions. Only because managing a huge no. Of population all over the world is not possible. There will be the number of crimes. Who will handle all such problems.
    iii. A borderless world means a unified governing body.

We don’t want that do we?

    Option ii and iii are ambiguous as they aren’t concluding any specific idea. And option i clearly states that we need borders
  3. Women are better at Multi-Tasking
    i. I do not feel that women are inherently any better at multitasking than men are. I believe that each individual has a different skill set. There are both men and women who are great at multitasking. Likewise, there are both men and women who work better when given a single job. However, society has evolved in a manner so as to demand that women fulfill a number of roles society demands that woman handle both domestic and professional spheres without getting ruffled and so women try, and succeed at multitasking.
    ii. My cousin she is an engineer though she works for office from her home only then too she has no time to attend her child and spouse. Because all time in front of laptop attending meetings, seminars etc till 2 a.m. Makes women irritated which also result into conflicts between husband and wife.
    iii. Mary Kom who excelled in sports even though she is mother of 2 children, she nurtured them along with practice and spent time for her husband. Chanda Kochar ceo of ICICI was good at office and looking their family members.
    A) All except ii
    B) Only i
    C) Only ii
    D) All of these
    E) None of these
    View Answer
      Option B
    Option ii is detailing about a professional working from home and about his laziness and option iii is merely citing examples of two celebrities without elaborating the theme. Hence, discarded.
  4. Is Love Precious or Poisonous?
    i. Only the trust decide that the relationship is precious are poisonous. Love is a kind of feeling. All human need it. All are slave for love. But making it as a poison or precious is based on our behaviour. Remember one thing love is sweet poison. But don’t forget it is poison. Too much of anything is good for nothing.
    ii. I have more positive belief about love. Love is strong magical intangible feeling comprises of care, understanding, trust, respect and zero expectations. It exists everywhere and eternal. It doesn’t want gifts, it just requires time, compromisation, understanding. Our reason of happiness is love.
    iii. Love makes one’s life beautiful with various colours. Life without love is like a body without soul. In one’s life, a man comes across various types of love. As the proverb is “everyone is unique” in the same way love is unique to everyone. Everyone get this precious love according to their age.
    A) Only i

    C) Only iii
    D) All of these
    E) None of these.

      Option D
  5. Up the Down Staircase
    i. I think everyone falls once in their life. It is the very aspect of life. Without falling you can’t get back up and that is the recipe to become a successful person. The road may seem cumbersome and hard to come by but you need to keep moving up the ladder no matter how many times you fall down.
    ii. A staircase without stairs doesn’t signify sense to us in similar way a success without failure does not feels you good. Its only our failure step that ultimately help us to achieve us success. And one more thing these failure and success these are the state of mind, I want to ask simple question after getting a success does we stop achieving things, does we stop competing with others if so then this is also our failure.
    iii. It’s very difficult to climb up but higher person get respect in each and every field at point of failure person think about their mistakes to overcome these mistakes he can achieve great success.
    A) All except i
    B) Both i and ii
    C) Both ii and iii
    D) Both i and iii
    E) All of these

    The theme is a contradiction in itself. It actually means two faces of same coin. Hence all are correct.
