1 . Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words /expressions are given in bold in the passage to help you to locate them while answering some of the questions.

Radically changing monsoon patterns, reduction in the winter rice harvest and a quantum increase in respiratory diseases-all part of the environmental doomsday scenario, which is reportedly playing out in South Asia. According to a United Nations Environment Programme report, a deadly 3 km deep blanket of pollution comprising a fearsome cocktail of ash, acids, aerosols and other particles has enveloped this region. For India, already struggling to cope with a drought, the implications of this are devastating and further crop failure will amount to a life and death question for many Indians. The increase in premature deaths will have adverse social and economic consequences and a rise in morbidities will place an unbearable burden on our crumbling health system. And there is no one to blame but ourselves. Both official and corporate India has always been allergic to any mention of clean technology. Most mechanical two wheelers roll of the assembly line without proper pollution control system. Little effort is made for R & D on simple technologies, which could make a vital difference to people's lives and the environment.

However, while there is no denying that South Asia must clean up its act, skeptics might question the timing of the haze report. The Kyoto meet on climate change is just two weeks away and the stage is set for the usual battle between the developing world and the West, particularly the US President Mr. Bush has adamantly refused to sign any protocol, which would mean a change in American consumption level. UN environment report will likely find a place in the US arsenal as it plants an accusing finger towards controls like India and China. Yet the US can hardly deny its own dubious role in the matter of erasing trading quotas. Richer countries can simply buy up excess credits from poorer countries and continue to pollute. Rather than try to get the better of developing countries, who undoubtedly have taken up environmental shortcuts in their bid to catch up with the West, the US should take a look at the environmental profligacy which is going on within. From opening up virgin territories for oil exploration to relaxing the standards for drinking water.
Which according to the passage, is a life and death question to many Indians?
A.  Increase in respiratory diseases B.    Use of clean technology
C.  Thick blanket of pollution over the region D.    Failure in crops
E.    Dwindling agricultural yield

10 . 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

In the past, the few women professionals who dotted our corporate landscape suffered in silence, not willing to complain about discrimination or harassment for fear of losing their jobs. Today, there is strength in numbers and women are willing to raise issues of gender discrimination and sexual harassment publicly. Although women have greater confidence, financial independence, strong peer groups and a deeper understanding of their rights, they are still reluctant to expose issues related to sexual harassment and to take their tormentors down the legal path of justice. There exists, unfortunately, a huge psychological challenge that women, and society as a whole, need to address. This relates to behavioral attitudes and codes of conduct in the workplace.

It was in 1997 that a women's rights group called Vishaka filed a PIL in the Supreme Court in response to a humiliating legal battle fought by a rape victim in Rajasthan, who did not get justice and was shamed and ostracised by her community instead. Consequently, the Supreme Court's Vishaka judgment laid down guidelines for employers to deal with complaints of sexual harassment/assault at the workplace, which included the formation of an independent redressal committee.

If one looks at the statistics of reported rape cases, it is obvious that women have been denied justice. Between 2009 and 2012, over one lakh cases of rape and molestation were registered, but, sadly, the convictions declined from 44 per cent in 1973 to 24 per cent in 2012.

Against this backdrop, the alleged sexual assault case involving the former editor-in-chief of Tehelka, Tarun Tejpal, has yet again revealed, the ugly truth of how women are victimised in their workplaces. Worse still, Tejpal initially confessed to misconduct, and then retracted once he realised the gravity of the case. The victim, on the other hand, has courageously steered the matter on a legal course and is now braving the onslaught of allegations and tirades from Tejpal's camp. 'Why did you ride the elevator with Tejpal for a second time?' is one such ridiculous question. Inane comments such as these, about such serious matters, are what undermine the status of women in our society. Another outrageous comment came from a UP politician who now questions the employability of women. Such irresponsible utterances must be condemned if we are ever to build an equitable and modern society. The anger and outrage expressed this time has reached a critical decibel level and needs to be channelled into positive change. We cannot allow our attention span to be so short. We must act swiftly and surely to ensure that the Vishaka guidelines are implemented by every organisation. Women must be empowered and provided a safe working environ ent.
What needs to be done to address the issues of gender discrimination and sexual harassment at workplace?
A.  A women's cell should be established in every office where women are employed B.    There should be separate seating arrangement for women in corporate offices
C.  There should be specific code of conduct to provide adequate safeguards to women employees D.    There should be provision for harsh punishment for those who do not follow the codes of conduct meant especially to protect women employees.
E.    None of these
