    1. (c) As discussed in the passage that oil market analysts think that overseas investments are unlikely to shelter countries from oil market volatility. Thus, (1) is correct. Towards the end of the passage it was mentioned that if oil continues at $ 50-60 per barrel, then it would be a profitable situation and if prices drop it could be painful. Thus, (2) is correct. Oil market analysts are not critical of regarding oil as a rare commodity. Thus, (3) is incorrect. Example of China in the first paragraph shows that every production abroad may not shipped back to China. Thus, (4) is correct as well. Hence, (c) is the correct option.

    2. (b) Demand and supply are definitely co-relative as discussed in second paragraph. Thus, (1) is incorrect. According to passage, if there is sufficient or increase in supply relative to demand it will have a downward impact on price. Or they are indirectly related. In the same way, increase in demand relative to supply will push prices upward or directly co-related. Thus, both (2) and (3) are correct. Hence, (b) is the correct option.

    3. (b) Author is questioning the acquisition strategy of equity oil, specially Chinese and Indian companies. Hence, (b) would be more appropriate.

    4. (c) In the second paragraph it is already mentioned that knowledge intensive sectors produce tradable goods and can be integrated with global production network. Thus, both (1) and (3) are correct.

    Knowledge intensive modern sectors are having threat from abroad and it does help in bringing competition. Thus, (2) is incorrect. Hence, (c) is the correct option.

    5. (a) As discussed in the last paragraph, structural changes remove constraints from productivity growth. Thus, (a) is correct. Avoiding agriculture, increase in labour productivity or technological upgradation would be too specific. Hence, (a)

    is the correct option.

    6. (c) As per the passage convergence is more rapid in technology or knowledge intensive sectors and it clears the way for high productive growth. Thus, (1) and (2) are correct. Textile and clothing are less technological intensive sectors and it is difficult to bring new changes through

    convergence of technologies. Thus, (3) is incorrect. Hence, (c) is the correct option.

    7. (d) Passage is all about bringing rapid and high productive growth with the adoption of cutting edge technology to re-shape industries. Hence, (d) is the correct option.

    8. (a) Since the person has already picked 2 different coloured balls. Therefore, for the third coloured ball other than the previous two coloured balls maximum attempts would be 3, similarly for the fourth coloured ball maximum attempts or trials would be 4 and for the fifth coloured ball

    maximum attempts would be 5.

    Thus, (3) + (4) + (5) = 12

    Hence, (a) is the correct option.

    9. (b) This question can be easily solved through options.

    Time taken by,

    Larger diameter pipe = 5 min.

    Smaller diameter pipe = 8 min.

    Let the total unit to fill the cistern would be

    = LCM of (5, 8) = 40 units

    Efficiency of Larger diameter pipe in 1 min.

    = 8 units

    Efficiency of Smaller diameter pipe in 1 min.

    = 5 units

    Together in 1 min. both pipe can fill = 13 units

    Thus, 40 units can be fulfilled in

    4013 minutes = 13

    13 minutes

    Hence, (b) is the correct option.

    10. (b) Total routes connecting A to B is 6 and from B to C is 5.

    There are two ways to go from B to C.

    (i) Directly = 5 ways

    (ii) B to A and then from A to C = 6 2 = 12 ways. Total = 17 ways

    Hence, (b) is the correct option.

    11. (b) We know that,

    Profit (P) = SP CP ...(i)

    3P = 2SP CP (According to question)

    ...(ii)

    3(SP CP) = 2SP CP

    3SP 3CP = 2SP CP

    SP = 2CP

    P = 2CP CP

    P = CP

    or

    SP = 2CP

    If SP is double the CP then profit% is 100%. Hence, (b) is the correct option.

    12. (a) Let the number of officers in each row be x and the number of rows be y.

    Total number of officers = xy

    According to question,
