Answer & Explanation

1. (1) If the expenditure = x lakhs

So, 20 = (3-x)/x *100

x = 250000

2. (2) Percentage profit = (2.5 – 1.75)/1.75*100

= 42.85

3. (5)Required average = 1/6(2.9 + 3 + 3.5 + 3 +2.5 + 3.25) lakhs

= 302500

4. 4.(3)

5. (1)

6. (5) No of students in B.Com in college C = 350

Total no of students in B.Com in all the colleges

= 425 + 475 + 350 + 400 + 225 = 1875

Required % == (350/1875)*100 = 18.66

7. (1)

8. (2)

9. (2) No of students in BA is college B = 300

No of students studying all the disciplines in college B = 300 + 325 + 475 = 11000

Required % =  300/1100X100= 27.27%

10. (4) No of Students in B.Scin college C & E together =300 +425 = 725

No of students in B.A. in college C & E together

= 350+325=675

Required ratio = 725 : 675 = 29 : 27

English Quiz

Directions: Read the passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words/ phrases are given in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.
Imagine yourself in an Indian city where every home is connected to internet, gas, water and electricity via a smart grid. All citizens are linked to each other and to civic facilities in real time. The city uses renewable energy and its transport systems are controlled via central command centres to reduce traffic and pollution. In this city, there are no offensive smells, no noise, no dust, no heaving crowds. It is a smart city, the ideal city. And it exists: on paper. Its name is Dholera, and it is a key part of what you might call India’s 21st-century utopian urban experiment. Economists argue that the country desperately needs new cities: its urban population is expected to rise from 28% in 2001 to almost 36% in 2026, bringing the total number of people living in its cities and urban regions to 590 million.
To accommodate this growth, suggests a McKinsey report, India will need 20 to 30 new cities in the next decade alone. The state’s solution has been to push for 24 new “smart cities” along high-speed regional transport networks. Dholera is one of these. At 903 sq km, it would be twice the size of Mumbai. It is planned in the “influence zone” of a mega-infrastructure project, the Delhi-Mumbai industrial corridor, which will link India’s political capital Delhi with its economic capital Mumbai, and therefore, so the thinking goes, spur economic growth in the region. The Dholera that actually exists, however, is something else entirely. A casual visitor might see the small sign along the highway pointing in the direction of Dholera. But they might also, if they take the turn-off, be disappointed: for several months of the year, they will find a vast, low-lying area, mostly submerged under seawater. The rest of the year, they will see the classic cracked-earth look of salt flats. Dotting this landscape are farm buildings, village huts and small reservoirs storing rainwater that is used to irrigate fields of cumin, millet, wheat and cotton. They will see a vast landscape with about 40,000 people living in an ecological region that loses 1cm of its coastline to the sea every day. They might then understand that Dholera is not yet a “place”: it is still a terrain of possibilities.
P M Modi has declared Dholera and other proposed smart cities in the region to be “building blocks of a global Gujarat”, envisioned on the lines of Shanghai. And to make sure it happens, he shepherded in a new Special Investment Region (SIR) Act in March 2009. The act gives more power to the state to acquire land for building smart cities like Dholera. Another scenario is that Dholera is significantly downsized due to a lack of investors and stripped of its “smart” credentials, to become just another industrial township along the Delhi-Mumbai corridor. It becomes one of those backdoor cities to India’s urbanisation and economic growth, where polluting industries are located to keep them away from Delhi and Mumbai. It remains, in other words, a far cry from the smart city presented in the glossy marketing images.
