English Language

Directions (Q. 1–5): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words are given in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.

National integration is a problem that has been considered to be of vital importance all over the world. This is of special significance to our country. Leaders like Abraham Lincoln and President Kennedy fell victims to bullets of assassins in their efforts to bring about greater unity among the people and greater integration of the various parts of the country. Many social reformers believed that integration of a country could survive on the foundation of faith, brotherhood, and co-operation. The conditions in India were diversified with factors like caste system, colour etc. It wasn’t an easy task to bring about the brotherhood feeling among our people in India. Hindu rulers, though professing the same faith, were divided among themselves. The division was perpetuated by later Muslim rulers. But during British rule the policy of divide and rule became a cause of conflict. The dynamism of Sardar Patel led independent states to become integral part of the Indian Union. This was the first step towards national integration. Today national integration remains a distant goal. Love for power, craze for riches, religious and linguistic fantasia makes integration impossible. Under these circumstances a need for national integration is greatly felt. To achieve this one must be made to understand that the evils that result in the economic, social, religious and political decisions must be rooted out. They should also understand the emphasis of truth, that ideologies may differ, but that they should not be vehicles for prevention of the achievement of unity. The ideal of universal brotherhood should underline the teachings of all religions. The process of introspection should be cultivated from the grassroot level. Children at school must be taught the values of integration and its advantages. Young minds should be taught the values of national integration and its advantages.

Solutions:
1. 2; It has been mentioned that Abraham Lincoln and Kennedy fell victims to the bullets of assassins in their efforts for national integration.
2. 4
3. 5; Indian society was divided on the basis of caste, colour etc.
4. 1; Sardar Patel’s role in bringing all the independent states under the Indian Union
5. 3
6. 1; Here, 3 × 1.5 + 0.5 = 5
5 × 2 + 1 = 11
11 × 2.5 + 1.5 = 29
29 × 3 + 2 = 89
89 × 3.5 + 2.5 = 314
Hence, in the given series 87 is a wrong number and should be replaced by 89.


7. 3; Here,
12 + 13 = 13
13 + 23 = 21
21 + 33 = 48
48 + 43  = 112
112 + 53 = 237
Hence, in the given series 20 is a wrong number and should be replaced by 21.

8. 5; Here,
8.1 + 9.2 = 17.3
9.2 + 17.3 = 26.5
17.3 + 26.5 = 43.8
26.5 + 43.8 = 70.3
43.8 + 70.3 = 114.1
Hence, the wrong number is 71.5. It should be replaced by 70.3.

9. 3; 
10. 4;

The seating arrangement is given below:
V R Q S P X T W
In alphabetical
