A paragraph is given below from which the last sentence has been deleted. From the given options, choose the one that completes the paragraph in the most appropriate way.

The recent decision of the government of India to impose a moratorium on the release of Bt-Brinjal has been hailed by civil society and scientists alike as a victory for transparency and has demonstrated that the government is responsive to societal demands. This decision is also important since it could set a precedent within environmental regulation with reference to technologies with significant environmental risks.

a This establishes a clear case for ensuring legal certainty in environmental regulations especially in the case of technologies with significant risks attached to it.
b The process of arriving at this decision had also attracted a fair share of media attention, given its sensational nature.
c However, the decision also reflects a clear departure from procedure and its legal basis is tenuous and therefore the risk of it being reversed remains.

The ancient city of Cephesa was not buried by an eruption of Mt. Amnos in A.D. 310, as some believe. The eruption in the year 310 damaged the city, but it did not destroy it. Cephesa survived for another century before it finally met its destruction in another eruption around A.D. 415.
Which of the following, if true, would most strengthen the authors claim that the city of Cephesa was not buried by the eruption of Mt. Amnos in A.D. 310?

(B) Coins bearing the image of an emperor who lived around A.D. 410 have been discovered in the ruins of Cephesa, which were preserved by the cinders and ashes that buried the city.

my take is option A.

manihar.sidhart Says
Try this and please explain with proper reason!!!!!



one and second statements seem to be F and J to me .. 3rd one seems to be J .. i am confused with the last statement cause it seems to be a conclusion based on the information of the website , thus making it an inference .. but the word 'might' hints at an opinion being made ..

kindly pitch in with the OA

Q.10
Jnana and Bhakti are two commonly adopted spiritual paths by spiritually inclined people. The Jnani considers Bhakti to be only a means to Moksha. Bhakti leads to purification of the mind. The purified mind becomes fit to listen to Jnana which in due course of time results in Moksha. The Bhakta on the other hand is not interested in Moksha. He feels that Bhakti is the means and also the goal.
It can be inferred from the above paragraph that
a Jnanis and Bhaktas have an inherent dislike for each other.
b Jnanis and Bhaktas both strive for a pure mind.
c The Bhakta is idle most of the time as his means and goal are the same.
d The bhakta has an impure mind as he is not interested in Jnana.
e None of the above.


none of the options can be inferred

What makes proteins so versatile? It is their size and shape. Protein chains are long strings with beads and pendants along the chain. They can adopt a variety of shapes when the chain folds over itself, offering a three-dimensional structure with crevices, pockets and surface patches into which other molecules can fit in, interact and do chemistry. It is this structural form that leads to function


it's true that "(C)it coordinates with other molecules" but what enables it to do so .. certainly its the structural features ..

an answer may not be incorrect as in option(c) but it just gives away to a better and stronger one i.e. option (a)
