Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow by choosing the correct/most appropriate options:
1. Scientists have for the first time quantified the amount of plastic waste dumped into our oceans. About eight million tons of plastic waste was dumped into the world's oceans in 2010 and researches warn that the cumulative amount could increase more than 10-fold in the next decade unless the international community improves its waste management practices.
2. Jena Jambeck from the University of Georgia in Athens along with scientists from the US and Australia studied the sources of ocean-bound plastic around the world and developed models to estimate their annual contributions. They suggest that coastal countries generated close to 275 million tons of plastic in 2010 and that 4.8 to 12.7 million of that plastic made its way to the oceans.
3. "Our estimate of 8 million metric tons going into the oceans is equivalent to five grocery bags filled with plastic for every foot f coastline in the world," said Jambeck. "This annual input increases each year, so our estimate for 2015 is about 9.1 million metric tons."
4. "In 2025, the annual input would be about twice the 2010 input or 10 bags full of plastic per foot of coastline," she continued "So the cumulative input by 2025 would equal 155 million metric tons."

### 8. which part of the following sentence contains an error?It is true(a)   that shakespeare is(b)   greater than(c)   any other poets(d)

Question Numbers: (129 to 135)
Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow by choosing the correct/most appropriate options:
1. Each one of us is a mass of imperfections, and to be able to recognize and live with our imperfections, our basic natures, defects of genes and birth-hereditary flaws-makes for an easier transit on life's journey.
2. I am always a little wary of saints and godmen, preachers and teachers, who are ready with solutions for all our problems. For one thing, they talk too much. When I was at school, I mastered the art of sleeping (without appearing to sleep) through a long speech or lecture by the principal or visiting dignitary, and I must confess to doing the same thing today. The trick is to sleep with your eyes half closed; this gives the impression of concentrating very hard on what is being said, even though you might well be roaming happily in dreamland.
3. In our imperfect world there is far too much talk and not enough thought. The TV channels are awash with TV gurus telling us how to live, and they do so at great length. This verbal diarrhoea is infectious and appears to affect newspersons and TV anchors who are prone to lecturing and bullying the guests on their shows. Too many know-alls. A philosophy for living? You won't find it on your TV sets. You will learn more from a cab driver or street vendor.

Question Numbers: (31 to 38)
Read the passage given below and answer the questions/complete the statements that follow by choosing the correct options from the given ones.
Women's Right-
Even after so many years of independence the women of India are still exploited and abused, inspite of constitutional guarantees and new laws. Man considers himself superior to woman and her master. The orthodox system of the family is set in his favour exclusively. Within the confines of domestic walls man feels free to act like a merciless male chauvinist. The birth of female child is considered a curse in most parts of our country. Without any thought the female foetus is murdered. At practical level law fails to protect a woman's human rights. The situation is worse in rural area. There the women slave for men considering it their fate and a duty ordered by God Almighty. The rural women have no idea about their legal rights and privileges.
It is not the illiterate women's fate only. Even educated woman of urban areas who is gainfully employed does not use her rights for fear of antagonizing her husband. She meekly gives in to male arrogance to avoid domestic discord and physical abuse.
Thus, the male dominance continues to hold away at the cost of the rights and the privileges of women. This factor has created gross imbalance in the Indian families. Now-a-days the families do not mind sisters, daughters and wives seeking gainful employment. as long as they don't exercise their right to spend their earning as they like. A working woman brings home tidy salary to add to the family income but she cannot hope of any help from her husband in doing domestic chores. She has to toil alone like a salve. For husbands doing households work is below their dignity and as far as the women are concerned it is their natural duty. The doubly burdened women when they protest or complain the men ignore them or react violently which results in the growing tension in relationship. The resultant quarrels and maladjustments in the family badly affect the children psychologically.

### 38. Which word from among the options given below means the same as 'disagreement' as used in the passage.

Question Numbers: (39 to 45)
Reads the passage given below and answer the questions/complete the statements that follow by choosing the most appropriate options out of the given ones.
When an animal such as a dog or cat, is sick or unwell its first natural instinct is to refuse food. Their body automatically cuts down appetite till they recover. They may drink water but nothing else. This is body's intelligence taking over to heal and recover.
Humans aren't any different. At least, intuitively. All of us are products of nature and we have been designed the same. When we call in sick, the first thing that happens is that our appetites shut down too. Our taste of mouth changes and our sensitivity to smell and taste is numbed. This is our body's intelligence trying to tell us that it's time we give our body some rest.
This is fasting in a way and has been practised since the longest time-across all religions. Fasting is inbuilt in us and is considered medicinal if you actually go back and read its history. It is our body's uncomplicated way of cleaning and healing.
Unfortunately, we have moved too far from nature and our natural instincts. We are constantly eating and munching even when sick, thereby compromising our own immunity and making the inbuilt mechanism to heal.
Whereas take a break from eating, we put our digestive system to rest first. Our digestive system utilises 80% of our body's. energy, leaving only 20% for repair, recycling, eliminating etc. Now when we slow down our eating, we redirect that huge chunk of energy to healing, repair and immunity boost, which our digestive system would consume otherwise. That's our immunity working for us.
