1. But man is not destined to vanish. He can be killed, but he cannot be destroyed, because his soul is deathless and his spirit is irrepressible. Therefore, though the situation seems dark in the context of the confrontation between the superpowers, the silver lining is provided by amazing phenomenon that the very nations which have spent incalculable resources and energy for the production of deadly weapons are desperately trying to find out how they might never be used. They threaten each other, intimidate each other and go to the brink, but before the total hour arrives they withdraw from the brink.

[i] The main point from the author's view is that
(a) Man's soul and spirit can not be destroyed by superpowers.
(b) Man's destiny is not fully clear or visible.
(c) Man's soul and spirit are immortal.
(d) Man's safety is assured by the delicate balance of power in terms of nuclear weapons.
(e) Human society will survive despite the serious threat of total annihilation.
Ans : (e)

(a) Retreating from extreme danger.
(b) Declare war on each other.

(d) Negotiate for peace.
(e) Commit suicide.
Ans : (c)

[iii] In the author's opinion

(b) Superpowers have at last realized the need for abandoning the production of lethal weapons.
(c) Mankind is heading towards complete destruction.
(d) Nations in possession of huge stockpiles of lethal weapons are trying hard to avoid actual conflict.

2. Disequilibrium at the interface of water and air is a factor on which the transfer of heat and water vapor from the ocean to the air depends. The air within about a millimeter of the water is almost saturated with water vapor and the temperature of the air is close to that of the surface water. Irrespective of how small these differences might be, they are crucial, and the disequilibrium is maintained by air near the surface mixing with air higher up, which is typically appreciably cooler and lower in water vapor content. The turbulence, which takes its energy from the wind mixes the air. As the speed of wind increases, so does the turbulence, and consequently the rate of heat and moisture transfer. We can arrive at a detailed understanding of this phenomenon after further study. The transfer of momentum from wind to water, which occurs when waves are formed is an interacting-and complicated phenomenon. When waves are made by the wind, it transfers important amounts of energy-energy, which is consequently not available for the production of turbulence.

[i] This passage principally intends to:
(a) resolve a controversy
(b) attempt a description of a phenomenon
(c) sketch a theory
(d) reinforce certain research findings
(e) tabulate various observations
Ans : (b)

[ii] The wind over the ocean usually does which of the following according to the given passage?
I. Leads to cool, dry air coming in proximity with the ocean surface.
II. Maintains a steady rate of heat and moisture transfer between the ocean and the air.
III. Results in frequent changes in the ocean surface temperature.
(a) I only
(b) II only
(c) I and II only
(d) II and III only
(e) I, II, and III
Ans : (a)

[iii] According to the author the present knowledge regarding heat and moisture transfer from the ocean to air as
(a) revolutionary
(b) inconsequential
(c) outdated
(d) derivative
(e) incomplete
Ans : (e)

[iv] According to the given passage, in case the wind was to decrease until there was no wind at all, which of the following would occur?
(a) The air, which is closest to the ocean surface would get saturated with water vapor.
(b) The water would be cooler than the air closest to the ocean surface.
(c) There would be a decrease in the amount of moisture in the air closest to the ocean surface.
(d) There would be an increase in the rate of heat and moisture transfer.
(e) The temperature of the air closest to the ocean and that of the air higher up would be the same.
Ans : (a)
