CR

The problem of traffic congestion in Athens has been testing the ingenuity of politicians and town planners for years. But the measures adapted to date have not succeeded in decreasing the number of cars on the road in the city centre. In 1980, odds and evens number-plate legislation was introduced under which odd and even plates were banned in the city centre on alternate days thereby expecting to halve the number of cars in the city centre. Then in 1993 it was decreed that all cars in use in the city centre must be fitted with catalytic converters, the only condition being that the buyer of such a ‘clean’ car offered for destruction, a car at least 15-years old.

Which one of the following options if true would best support the claim that the measures adopted to date have not succeeded?

1. In the 1980s, many families purchased second cars with the requisite odd or even number plate.

2. In the mid-1990s, many families found it feasible to become first-time car owners by buying a car more than 15 years old and turning it in for a new car with catalytic converters.


3. Post-1993, many families found it feasible to become first-time car owners by buying a car more than 15-years old and buy ‘clean’ cars from the open market, even if it meant forgoing the import tax subsidy.

4. All of the above.

P.S- I don't have an Official answer for the particular question so refrain from tagging unnecessarily asking OA. The problem can be discussed.

Official Thread For RC Discussion CAT 2015

RC's can be potential game changers for your VA score ! So let's begin with our RC preparation for CAT 2015 !

Latest Posts   

Directions for questions 48 to 50: The passage given below is followed by a set of three questions. Choose the most appropriate answer to each question.

The development underlines the great danger we face from the extension of anti-terrorist measures and methods into normal life – the policing of our streets, for example, and the hounding of football fans and climate change protestors. Just as disturbing is the line of questioning by the police of those who made freedom of information requests before the alleged hacking of computers last year. In a letter to the Financial Times, Sebastian Nokes, a climate change sceptic and businessman, said he was interviewed by an officer who “wanted to know what computer I used, my internet service provider, and also to which political parties I have belonged, what I feel about climate change and what my qualifications in climate science are. He questioned me at length about my political and scientific opinions”. The police have a duty to investigate the alleged crime, but this kind of questioning smacks of something far more sinister because a person’s political and scientific views are being weighed to assess his likely criminality in the eyes of the police officer. Now you might ask how else the police are going to establish who is a suspect. After all, you would certainly ask people about their views if you investigating a string of racist attacks. But this is not a violent crime or a terrorist matter: moreover, Nokes had simply sent “an FOI request to the university’s climate unit asking whether scientists had received training in the disclosure rules and asking for copies of any emails in which they suggested ducking their obligations to disclose data”.

On that basis the police felt entitled to examine Nokes on his views. These days it’s surprising that they haven’t found a way to seize his computer and mobile phone, which is what routinely happens to those involved in climate change protests. Limits need to be set in the policing and investigation of people’s legitimate beliefs. Any future government must take a grip on the tendency of the police to watch, search, categorise and retain the personal details of those who express the political, religious or scientific beliefs. We should never forget that under this government the police have used forward intelligence teams to photograph people emerging from a climate change meeting in a cafe in Brighton; have used the ANPR system to track the movement of vehicles belonging to people travelling to demonstrations; have prevented press photographers from carrying out their lawful right to cover news events; and have combed the computers and searched the premises of an MP legitimately engaged in the business of opposition and holding the government to account. What this adds up to is a failure of understanding in the police force that one of its primary duties is to protect the various and sometimes inconvenient manifestations of a democracy, not to suppress them. That is why they have to be ultra-careful deploying specialist terrorist intelligence units and treating people’s opinions as evidence.


48. Which one of these best expresses the author’s attitude towards Sebastian Nokes? (a) The author considers Nokes’ situation as a symptom of a bigger malaise. (b) The author supports Nokes and protests against the treatment meted out to him. (c) The author questions the legality of the actions carried out by the police against Nokes. (d) The author worries about the moral implications of the involvement of the police in such cases.


49. What is the central theme explored by the author in the passage? (a) The role of police in a democracy. (b) The extension of the special powers of the police to questionable territory. (c) The abuse of power by the police. (d) The use of the police to stem opposition to the government’s ideas.


50. The author is least likely to support which of the following? (a) Tracking the movements of a person accused of corporate fraud. (b) Seizing the computer or mobile of an alleged terrorist. (c) Analysing the political beliefs of a person involved in a racist attack. (d) Banning media coverage of an event because it is likely to get violent.
