This is used in multiple inheritance as shown here. If professor was not inherited virtually then there would be 2 instances of professor in the object of myprofessor.<br /><br />7.<br />string somestring ;<br />Which of the following choices will convert a standard C++ string object "somestring" to a C string?<br />a) Copy.somestring () ;<br />b) somestring.c_str ()<br />c) &somestring [1]<br />d) std::cstring (somestring)<br />e) (char *) somestring<br /><br /><br />Ans. b<br /><br />8.<br />class ba***<br />{<br />int x;<br />public:<br />void setx(int y) {x=y;}<br />};<br />class derived : ba*** {};<br />What is the access level for the member function "setx" in the class "derived" above?<br />a) private<br />b) local<br />c) global<br />d) public<br />e) protected<br /><br /><br />Ans. a<br /><br />E) Table of Member Access Privileges<br />Access in Base Class Base Class Inherited as Access in Derived Class<br />Public Protected Private Public Public Protected No access1<br />Public Protected Private Protected Protected Protected No access1<br />Public Protected Private Private Private Private No access1<br />1 Unless friend declarations within the base class explicitly grant access.<br />So, the highest member accessibility is defined by the way a class is inherited, if it is inherited privately, then the highest member accessibility will be private. Default inheritance is private.<br /><br />9.<br />class Alpha {<br />public:<br />char data[10000];<br />Alpha();<br />~Alpha();<br />};<br />class Beta {<br />public:<br />Beta() { n = 0; }<br />void FillData(Alpha a);<br /><br />private:<br />int n;<br />};<br />How do you make the above sample code more efficient?<br />a) If possible, make the constructor for Beta private to reduce the overhead of public constructors.<br />b) Change the return type in FillData to int to negate the implicit return conversion from "int" to "void".<br />c) Make the destructor for Alpha virtual.<br />d) Make the constructor for Alpha virtual.<br />e) Pass a const reference to Alpha in FillData<br /><br /><br />Ans. e. since u r passing a reference hence a new array will not be created in memory, whereas if u pass by value, then an array of 10000 chars will be created. Passing by reference only creates an alias for the original parameter (i.e., it points to the original parameter) and is same as passing by address, the only difference is that it can be used like an object instead of as a pointer, i.e., if param is &a, then u will write a.member, whereas if param is *a then u will write a->member.<br /><br />10.<br />class Foo {<br />int x;<br />public:<br />Foo(int I);<br />};<br />If a class does not have a copy constructor explicitly defined one will be implicitly defined for it. Referring to the sample code above, which one of the following declarations is the implicitly created copy constructor?<br />a) Foo(Foo *f);<br />b) Foo(Foo &f);<br />c) Foo(const Foo *f);<br />d) Foo(const Foo &f);<br />e) Foo(int);<br /><br /><br />Ans. d. copy constructor takes an arg of its own type which is passed by ref and which should not be changed hence it is const<br /><br />11.<br />class HasStatic {<br />static int I;<br />};<br />Referring to the sample code above, what is the appropriate method of defining the member variable "I", and assigning it the value 10, outside of the class declaration?<br />a) HasStatic I = 10;<br />b) int static I = 10;<br />c) static I(10);<br />d) static I = 10;<br />e) int HasStatic::I = 10;<br /><br /><br />Ans. e<br /><br />12.<br />class X<br />{<br />private:<br />int a;<br />protected:<br />X(){cout<<"X constructor was called"< ~X(){cout<<"X destructor was called"<};<br />Referring to the code above, which one of the following statements regarding "X" is TRUE?<br />a) X is an abstract class.<br />b) Only subclasses of X may create X objects.<br />c) Instances of X cannot be created.<br />d) X objects can only be created using the default copy constructor.<br />e) Only friends can create instances of X objects.<br /><br /><br />Ans. b. instances of X can be created only inside its subclasses.<br /><br />13.<br />class Foo {<br />const int x;<br />protected:<br />Foo(int f);<br />~Foo();<br />};<br />Foo f;<br />Referring to the sample code above, why will the class declaration not compile?<br />a) The variable x is const.<br />b) The destructor is protected.<br />c) The destructor is not public.<br />d) The constructor is protected.<br />e) There is no default constructor.<br /><br /><br />Ans. e. if u don't specify a constructor for a class, then the compiler generates the default constructor for u, but if u specify a constructor apart from the default constructor, then u must give the default constructor also, but only if u r creating an object which uses the default constructor. i.e., the following code is perfectly fine<br />class Foo {<br />public:<br />Foo(int f){}<br />~Foo(){}<br />};<br />Foo f(0);<br /><br />But if u try to create an object of Foo like this<br />Foo f;<br />then this will give compiler error because there is no default constructor available.<br /><br />14.<br />class Foo {<br />public:<br />Foo(int i) { }<br />};<br />class Bar : virtual Foo {<br />public:<br />Bar() { }<br />};<br /><br />Bar b;<br /><br />Referring to the above code, when the object 'b' is defined, a compiler error will occur. What action fixes the compiler error?<br />a) Adding a virtual destructor to the class Bar<br />b) Adding a constructor to Bar which takes an int parameter<br />c) Adding "Foo()" to the Bar constructor<br />d) Adding a copy constructor to the class Foo<br />e) Adding "Foo(0)" to the Bar::Bar initializer list<br /><br /><br />Ans. e<br /><br />15. Which one of the following describes characteristics of "protected" inheritance?<br />a) The base class has access only to the public or protected members of the derived class.<br />b) The derived class has non-public, inheritable, access to all but the private members of the base class.<br />c) The derived class has access to all members of the base class.<br />d) The private members of the base class are visible within the derived class.<br />e) Public members of the derived class are privately accessible from the base class.<br /><br /><br />Ans. b<br /><br />16. The "virtual" specifier in a member function enables which one of the following?<br />a) Monmorphism<br />b) Late binding<br />c) Metamorphism<br />d) Solomorphism<br />e) Inheritance<br /><br /><br />Ans. b. consider a base class B having a virtual function Foo, and a class D derived from this class also having a function Foo. Then when u create an object of a derived class, say dobj, and a ptr to base class, say pb, and point pb to dobj by saying pb = &dobj, and then call pb->Foo then the correct version of Foo will be called, i.e., the version in D will be called becz the object is of type D. this is called late binding, i.e., deferring the decision of calling which version of Foo until runtime since at compile time the type of object to which pb points may not be known.<br />class B {public: virtual void Foo(){cout<<"base";}};<br />class D : public B {public: virtual void Foo(){cout<<"derv";}};<br />D dobj;<br />B *pb;<br />pb = &dobj;<br />pb->Foo();<br /><br />the output will be 'derv'.<br />If Foo was not declared virtual in base class B , then the output would have been 'base'.<br /><br />17.<br />class X<br />{<br />public:<br />int x;<br />static void f(int z);<br />};<br />void X::f(int y) {x=y;}<br />What is the error in the sample code above?<br />a) The class X does not have any protected members.<br />b) The static member function f() accesses the non-static z.<br />c) The static member function f() accesses the non-static x.<br />d) The member function f() must return a value.<br />e) The class X does not have any private members.<br /><br />Ans. c<br /><br />18.<br />template class Obj {<br />T my_t;<br />X my_x;<br />public:<br />Obj(T t, X x) : my_t(t), my_x(x) { }<br />};<br />Referring to the sample code above, which one of the following is a valid conversion operator for the type T?<br />a) T operator T () { return my_t; }<br />b) T operator(T) const { return my_t; }<br />c) operator(T) { return my_t; }<br />d) T operator T (const Obj &obj) { return obj.my_t; }<br />e) operator T () const { return my_t; }<br /><br /><br />Ans. e.<br />this will be used for casting objects of type Obj to type T<br /><br />class Myclass{};<br />template class Obj {<br />T my_t;<br />X my_x;<br />public:<br />Obj(T t, X x) : my_t(t), my_x(x) { }<br />operator T () const { return my_t; }<br />operator X () const { return my_x; }<br />};<br /><br />void main()<br />{<br />Myclass mt;<br />Obj myobj(10,mt);<br />int x = (int) myobj;<br />cout << x;<br />Myclass mobj = (Myclass) myobj;<br />}<br /><br /><br />19.<br />catch(exception &e)<br />{<br />. . .<br />}<br />Referring to the sample code above, which one of the following lines of code produces a written description of the type of exception that "e" refers to?<br />a) cout << e.type();<br />b) cout << e.name();<br />c) cout << typeid(e).name();<br />d) cout << e.what();<br />e) cout << e;<br /><br /><br />Ans. c<br /><br />20.<br />int f() {<br />int I = 12;<br />int &r = I;<br />r += r / 4;<br />int *p = &r;<br />*p += r;<br />return I;<br />}<br />Referring to the sample code above, what is the return value of the function "f()"?<br />a) 12<br />b) 15<br />c) 24<br />d) 17<br />e) 30<br /><br /><br />Ans. e<br /><br />Answers:<br /><br /><br />1. b<br />2. c<br />3. b<br />4. b<br />5. b<br />6. b<br />7. b<br />8. a<br />9. e<br />10. d<br />11. e<br />12. b<br />13. e<br />14. e<br />15. b<br />16. b<br />17. c<br />18. e<br />19. c<br />20. emsnprabuhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/17469051205456466670noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4611505185481182729.post-17197520380639164762008-05-18T01:00:00.001-07:002008-05-18T01:00:41.826-07:00C – Questions placement papers QUARKC - Questions<br /><br />1. What is the output of the following code<br />main()<br />{<br />printf("Hello %d",printf("QUARK test? "));<br />}<br />a. Compile time error.<br />b. Hello QUARK test?<br />c. Run time error.<br />d. None of the above.<br />e. Quark Test ?Hello.<br /><br /><br />Ans. d. the output is QUARK test? Hello 12<br />This is because the evaluation of the parameters in a function call is done from right to left, becz the parameters were passed via a stack hence the first parameter (the leftmost one) is at the bottom of the stack and the rightmost parameter (if it is an expresseion, it will be evaluated before putting it on the stack) is on the top of the stack, hence while popping the parameters from the stack, the function printf (or any other function) gets them in the reverse order, i.e., from right to left, hence the statement printf("Quark test? ") gets evaluated first while pushing it as a parameter on to the stack, and then the statement printf("Hello %d") is executed. The '12′ is the result of the return of printf("Quark test? ") which returns the number of characters printed.<br /><br /><br />2.) Out put of the following code is<br />main()<br />{<br />int i,j,A;<br />for (A = -1;A<=1; A++)<br />printf("%d\t",!!A);<br />}<br /><br />a. 1 0 1<br />b. 65534 0 65534<br />c. -1 0 1<br />d. -65534 0 65534<br />e.

Compilation error<br />b. ark<br />c. quark<br />d. uark<br /><br />Ans, uark<br /><br />8. What will be the out put of the following code?<br />void main()<br />{ int x=3;<br />printf("%d\t %d",x>>1, x<<3);<br />}<br />a. 1 and 4<br />b. 1 and 24<br />c. 1 and 27<br />d. None of the above<br /><br /><br />Ans. 1 and 24<br />This is because 3 in binary is 00000000 00000011 in two bytes (integer). Again, the right to left evaluation rule of parameters is applicable and so x<<3 gets executed first, it means left shift 3 times, but this operator does not change the value of x itself, it simply returns a value, so x retains its value after this operation has been carried out, so we get 00000000 00011000 which is 24, so 24 is pushed onto the stack, and then x>>1, right shift 1, 00000000 00000011, which is 1 in decimal, so 1 is pushed onto the stack, then printf("%d\t %d") gets executed displaying 1 24.<br /><br />9. What will be the result of the following code?<br /><br />int *x;<br />x =(int *) 15;<br />a. Compilation error<br />b. Compiles but gives a runtime error<br />c. Absolute location 15 in the memory space shall be assigned to pointer x;<br />d. Location 15 in the program space is assigned to pointer x;<br />e. Location 15 contains the address to an integer.<br /><br />Ans d<br /><br /><br />10. Which of the following functions cannot be called from another file?<br /><br />a. const void func(){ ……..}<br />b. extern void func(){………}<br />c. void func(){………}<br />d. static void func(){……….}<br /><br /><br />Ans. static<br /><br />11. What will be the out come of the following code?<br /><br />#include<br /><br />int * func(){<br />static int x=0;<br />x++; return &x;<br />}<br />int main()<br />{<br />int * y = func();<br />printf("%d",(*y)++);<br />func();<br />printf("%d\n",*y);<br />return 0;<br />}<br /><br />a. Compilation error.<br />b. Prints 1 and 3<br />c. Prints 1 and 3 but it is not good practice.<br />d. Prints 1 and 1<br />e. The code will not execute properly because y points to a variable whose life span is limited to execution of the function func();<br /><br /><br />Ans. Prints 1 and 3 but it is not a good practice<br /><br />12. Referring to the above code , which of the following would be the correct<br />implementation for myFunc ?<br />char *format = "%d";<br />int main()<br />{<br />int x;<br />myFunc(scanf,&x);<br />printf("%d\n",x);<br />return(0);<br />}<br /><br />a. void myFunc(int(*y)(const char*,…),int *x) {(*y)(format,&x);}<br />b. void myFunc(int(*y)(const char*,…),int *x) {(*y)(format,*x);}<br />c. void myFunc(int*y(const char*,…),int *x) {(*y)(format,&x);}<br />d. void myFunc(*(int y(const char*,…)),int *x) {(*y)(format,x);}<br />e. void myFunc(int(*y)(const char*,…),int *x) {(*y)(format,x);}<br /><br />13. What shall be the output of the following C code?<br />void main()<br />{<br />unsigned int x= -1;<br />int y =0;<br />if(y<=x) printf("A is true\n");<br />if (y = =(x = -10)) printf("B is true\n");<br />if ((int) x>=y) printf("C is true\n");<br />}<br />a. A is true.<br />b. B is true.<br />c. C is true.<br />d. None of the above.<br /><br />Ans. A is true because x contains -1, i.e., in binary it is ffff, i.e., all 1s, so being unsigned, all 1s are interpreted as the value 65535 and not as -1 (however, all 1s are interpreted as -1 if it is just an int), hence y<=x returns true.<br /><br />14. In the following code what is the correct way to increment the variable ptr to<br />point to the next member of the array<br /><br />union intfloat<br />{<br />int intArray[ 5];<br />float floatArray[ 5];<br /><br />};<br />union intfloat arr[20];<br />void *ptr =arr;<br /><br />a. ++(int*)ptr;<br />b. ptr = ptr+5;<br />c. ptr = ptr +sizeof(*ptr);<br />d. ptr = ptr+sizeof(intfloat.floatArray);<br />e. ptr = (void*)((union intfloat*)ptr +1);<br /><br /><br />Ans. e. ptr = (void*)((union intfloat*)ptr +1);<br /><br /><br />15.What shall be the output of the following program?<br /><br />#define PRINTXYZ(x,y,z) printf (#x "=%d\t" #z "=%d\n", x, y)<br /><br />void main() {<br />int x, y, z;<br />x=0; y=1; z=2;<br /><br />x || ++y ||++z;<br />PRINTXYZ(x,y,z);<br /><br />++x || ++y && ++z;<br />PRINTXYZ(x,y,z);<br /><br />++x && ++y || ++z;<br />PRINTXYZ(x,y,z);<br />}<br /><br />a. Compilation error.<br />b. Runtime error.<br />c.<br />x=0 z=2<br />x=1 z=3<br />x=2 z=4<br />d.<br />x=0 z=2<br />x=1 z=2<br />x=2 z=3<br />e. None of the above.<br /><br /><br />Ans. d.<br /><br />16. What shall be the output of the following code ?<br /><br />main()<br />{<br />printf("%d %d", sizeof(NULL), sizeof(""));<br />}<br /><br />a. 1 and 0.<br />b. 0 and 1<br />c. 2 and 1<br />d. 4 and 1<br />e. None of the above<br /><br /><br />Ans. Depends on the machine and compiler. Actually it is the sizeof(int) and sizeof(char) as a string is stored as a char array terminated with 0, so sizeof("") gives 1, whereas sizeof("adsf") gives 5 (including the terminating 0). So in TurboC we get c as the answer, on VC we get d as the answer, so I guess e is the ans, i.e., None of the above.<br /><br /><br />17. What shall be the output of the following code?<br /><br />int *check ( int,int);<br />void main()<br />{int c,d;<br />c = check(11,29);<br />d= check(20,30);<br />printf("\nc=%u",c);<br />}<br />int * check(int i,int j )<br />{<br />int *p, *q;<br />p=&i;<br />q=&j;<br />if(i>=95)<br />return(q);<br />else<br />return(p);<br />}<br />a. 11<br />b. 29<br />c. Compilation error<br />d. Runtime error<br />e. None of the above.<br /><br />Ans. e. None of the above. the statement c = check(11,29) is assigning an int ptr to an int, so c has an address of an int (which has gone out of scope, since the function returns the address of a variable which had its scope only inside the function, since the parameters were passed by value) so the value printed can be anything. Instead, if the statement was c = *(check(11,29)) then c would have the value stored at the address returned by the function, which would most probably be 11, but it cannot be guaranteed since the variable i has fallen out of scope.<br /><br /><br />18. What shall be the output of the following code?<br /><br />void main()<br />{int a[3][2]={ 1,2,<br />5,7,<br />6,8};<br /><br />printf("\n%d",((a+1)-(&a+1)));<br />}<br />a. 0<br />b. -16<br />c. -2<br />d. -8<br />e. None of the above.<br /><br /><br />Ans. -2. I haven't been able to figure this one out. a is the address of the 2-d array, here a, &a, *a all give the same value, i.e., address of the array. (a+1) gives the address of the second row, it is the same as a[1]. *(a+1) gives the address of the first cell of the second row. **(a+1) gives the value of the element stored in the first cell in the second row. (*(a+1)+1) gives the address of the second cell of the second row. *(*(a+1)+1) gives the value of the element stored in the second cell in the second row.<br /><br />19.What shall be the output of the following code?<br />main()<br />{<br />char str1[]="Hello";<br />char str2[]="Hello";<br />if(str1= =str2&& (*(str1+6)= =*(str2+6)))<br />printf("\n Equal");<br />else<br />printf("\n unequal");<br />}<br />a. Equal<br />b. Unequal<br />c. Compilation error.<br />d. Runtime error.<br />e. None of the above.<br /><br /><br />Ans. b. Unequal, because the addresses of the two strings are str1 and str2 and they are different.<br /><br />20. Given that sizeof(int) is 2 , what is the output of the following code<br />main()<br />{<br />int a, b=255,c=127;<br />a=~b;<br />c=c^(~a & b|0);\<br />c=c^(~(~b));<br />printf("%d\n",c);<br />}<br />a. Error because of overflow;<br />b. 255<br />c. -256<br />d. 127<br />e. None of the above<br /><br />Ans. d. 127<br /><br />ANSWERS<br /><br /><br />1. D<br />2. A<br />3. A<br />4. C<br />5.

If he sold the horse at 10 % loss and the cart at 20 % gain, he would not lose anything; but if he sold the horse at 5% loss and the cart at 5% gain, he would lose Rs. 10 in the bargain. The amount paid by him was Rs.- _______ for the horse and Rs.________ for the cart.<br />Ans :Cost price of horse = Rs. 400 & the cost price of cart = 200.<br />Explanation:-<br />Let x be the cost price of the horse and y be the cost price of the cart.<br />In the first sale there is no loss or profit. (i.e.) The loss obtained is equal to the gain.<br />Therefore (10/100) * x = (20/100) * y<br />X = 2 * y —————–(1)<br />In the second sale, he lost Rs. 10. (i.e.) The loss is greater than the profit by Rs. 10.<br />Therefore (5 / 100) * x = (5 / 100) * y + 10 ——-(2)<br />Substituting (1) in (2) we get<br />(10 / 100) * y = (5 / 100) * y + 10<br />(5 / 100) * y = 10<br />y = 200<br />From (1) 2 * 200 = x = 400.<br /><br />——————————————————————————–<br />what is a percent of b divided by b percent of a?<br />Ans :1<br />Explanation:<br />a percent of b : (a/100) * b<br />b percent of a : (b/100) * a<br />a percent of b divided by b percent of a : ((a / 100 )*b) / (b/100) * a )) = 1.<br /><br />——————————————————————————–<br />A contractor agreeing to finish a work in 150 days, employed 75 men each working 8 hours daily. After 90 days, only 2/7 of the work was completed. Increasing the number of men by ________ each working now for 10 hours daily, the work can be completed in time.<br />Ans :150 men.<br />Explanation:<br />One day's work = 2 / (7 * 90)<br />One hour's work = 2 / (7 * 90 *<br />One man's work = 2 / (7 * 90 * 8 * 75)<br />The remaining work (5/7) has to be completed within 60 days, because the<br />total number of days allotted for the project is 150 days.<br />So we get the equation<br />(2 * 10 * x * 60) / (7 * 90 * 8 * 75) = 5/7 where x is the number of men<br />working after the 90th day.<br />We get x = 225<br />Since we have 75 men already, it is enough to add only 150 men..<br /><br />——————————————————————————–<br />A man was engaged on a job for 30 days on the condition that he would get a wage of Rs. 10 for the day he works, but he have to pay a fine of Rs. 2 for each day of his absence.

He is allowed to make a final statement, after which he will be shot if the statement is false or will be hung if the statement is true. Gasslefield makes his final statement and is released. What could he have said?<br />General Gasslefield said: "I will be shot." If this statement was true, he would have been hung and thus not be shot. But then his statement would be false, which implies that he should be shot, making the statement true again, etc… In other words: the verdict of the court-martial could not be executed and the general was released..<br /><br />A long, long time ago, two Egyptian camel drivers were fighting for the hand of the daughter of the sheik of Abbudzjabbu. The sheik, who liked neither of these men to become the future husband of his daughter, came up with a clever plan: a race would determine who of the two men would be allowed to marry his daughter. And so the sheik organized a camel race. Both camel drivers had to travel from Cairo to Abbudzjabbu, and the one whose camel would arrive last in Abbudzjabbu, would be allowed to marry the sheik's daughter. The two camel drivers, realizing that this could become a rather lengthy expedition, finally decided to consult the Wise Man of their village. Arrived there, they explained him the situation, upon which the Wise Man raised his cane and spoke four wise words. Relieved, the two camel drivers left his tent: they were ready for the contest! Which 4 wise words did the Wise Man speak?<br />Take each other's camel..<br /><br />A boy leaves home in the morning to go to school. At the moment he leaves the house he looks at the clock in the mirror. The clock has no number indication and for this reason the boy makes a mistake in interpreting the time (mirror-image). Just assuming the clock must be out of order, the boy cycles to school, where he arrives after twenty minutes. At that moment the clock at school shows a time that is two and a half hours later than the time that the boy saw on the clock at home. At what time did he reach school?<br />The difference between the real time and the time of the mirror image is two hours and ten minutes (two and a half hours, minus the twenty minutes of cycling). Therefore, the original time on the clock at home that morning could only have been five minutes past seven: The difference between these clocks is exactly 2 hours and ten minutes (note that also five minutes past one can be mirrored in a similar way, but this is not in the morning!).Conclusion: The boy reaches school at five minutes past seven plus twenty minutes of cycling, which is twenty-five minutes past seven!.<br /><br />In front of you are 10 bags, filled with marbles. The number of marbles in each bag differs, but all bags contain ten marbles or more. Nine of the ten bags only contain marbles of 10 grams each. One bag only contains marbles of 9 grams. In addition, you have a balance which can weigh in grams accurate, and you are allowed to use it only once (i.e. weigh a single time). How can you find out in one weighing, which bag contains the marbles of 9 grams?<br />Number the ten bags from 1 up to and including 10. Then take one marble from bag 1, two marbles from bag 2, three marbles from bag 3, etc. Place all 55 marbles that you selected from the bags together on the balance. The number of grams that the total weight of these 55 marbles differs from 550 grams, is equal to the number of marbles of 9 grams that are among those 55 marbles, and that is equal to the number of the bag which contains the marbles of 9 grams.<br /><br />An old farmer died and left 17 cows to his three sons. In his will, the farmer stated that his oldest son should get 1/2, his middle son should get 1/3, and his youngest son should get 1/9 of all the cows. The sons, who did not want to end up with half cows, sat for days trying to figure out how many cows each of them should get. One day, their neighbour came by to see how they were doing after their father's death. The three sons told him their problem. After thinking for a while, the neighbour said: "I'll be right back!" He went away, and when he came back, the three sons could divide the cows according to their father's will, and in such a way that each of them got a whole number of cows. What was the neighbour's solution?<br />The neighbour borrowed an extra cow, to make the total number of cows 18. Then the oldest son got 1/2 of 18 is 9 cows, the middle son got 1/3 of 18 is 6 cows, and the youngest son got 1/9 of 18 is 2 cows. Since 9+6+2 = 17, the cows could be divided among the three brothers in such a way that the borrowed cow was left over, and could be returned to its owner..<br /><br />It's always 1 to 6, it's always 15 to 20, it's always 5, but it's never 21, unless it's flying. What is this?<br />The answer is: a dice. An explanation:<br />"It's always 1 to 6″: the numbers on the faces of the dice,<br />"it's always 15 to 20″: the sum of the exposed faces when the dice comes to rest after being thrown,<br />"it's always 5″: the number of exposed faces when the dice is at rest,<br />"but it's never 21″: the sum of the exposed faces is never 21 when the dice is at rest,<br />"unless it's flying": the sum of all exposed faces when the dice is flying is 21 (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6)..<br /><br />A man has a wolf, a goat, and a cabbage. He must cross a river with the two animals and the cabbage. There is a small rowing-boat, in which he can take only one thing with him at a time. If, however, the wolf and the goat are left alone, the wolf will eat the goat. If the goat and the cabbage are left alone, the goat will eat the cabbage. How can the man get across the river with the two animals and the cabbage?<br />There are two solutions:<br />First, the man takes the goat across, leaving the wolf with the cabbage. Then he goes back. Next, he takes the wolf across. Then the man goes back, taking the goat with him. After this, he takes the cabbage across. Then he goes back again, leaving the wolf with the cabbage. Finally, he takes the goat across.<br />First, the man takes the goat across, leaving the wolf with the cabbage. Then he goes back.

"Strong" arguments must be both important and directly related to the question. "Weak" arguments may not be directly related to the question and may be of minor importance or many be related to the trivial aspects of the question.<br /><br />Each question below is followed by two arguments numbered I and II. You have to decide which of the arguments is a "strong" argument and which is a "weak" argument.<br /><br />Give answer 1): if only argument I is strong.<br /><br />Give answer 2): if only argument II is strong.<br /><br />Give answer 3): if either argument I or II is strong.<br /><br />Give answer 4): if neither argument I nor II is strong.<br /><br />Give answer 5): if both arguments I and II are strong.<br /><br />1. Will introduction of quota for backward classes in the institutes for higher studies be the right move to do social justice?<br /><br />Arguments:<br /><br />I. No, with this very few seats will be left for unreserved classes which is unfair to the deserving candidates and particularly to those who are economically backward.<br /><br />II. Yes, it is necessary to give them opportunities to rise up to the level of general category candidates.<br /><br />2. Should there be a complete ban on bursting crackers including fireworks barring a few occasions in our country?<br /><br />Arguments:<br /><br />I. No, people should be allowed to enjoy on all occasions according to their interests and priorities.<br /><br /> II. Yes, bursting crackers causes a lot of sound and air pollution which is hazardous to health.<br /><br />3. Should the use of calculators be permitted in all university examination?<br /><br />Arguments:<br /><br />I.

No, students should do the manual calculations so as to understand the concepts.<br /><br />4. Should the city development authorities encourage construction of shopping malls which may result into closure of smaller shops?<br /><br />Arguments:<br /><br />I. Yes, in shopping malls one can get very everything under one roof at a cheaper rate.<br /><br />II.

You have to examine each inference separately in the context of the passage and decide upon its degree of truth or falsity.<br /><br />Mark answer 1): if the inference is "definitely true", ie it properly follows from the statement of facts given.<br /><br />Mark answer 2): if the inference is "probably true" though not "definitely true." in the light of the facts given.<br /><br />Mark answer 3): if the data are inadequate, ie from the facts given you cannot say whether the inference is likely to be true or false.<br /><br />Mark answer 4): if the inference is "probably false" though not "definitely false" in the light of the facts given.<br /><br />Mark answer 5): if the inference is "definitely false", ie it cannot possibly be drawn from the facts given or it contradicts the given facts.<br /><br />Efficiency of capital has long been an area of neglect and remains so. This aspect is underscored in the eleventh plan draft, ironically in its demand for the rate of investment being raised to 35.1% of GDP from 29.1% in 2004-2005. The irony lies in the fact that the planning commission has consistently relied on the Incremental Capital Output Ratio (ICOR) as tool of expediency rather than one designed to promote efficiency. Yet, the ratio conceptually seeks to get the most out of the capital stock that is existing and is being added. The ratio now is 3.7, i.e. the capital needed for an output of 3.7 times. If the effective ratio is brought down during 2007-2012, then it would be possible to achieve a GDP growth value of 8.9% over the period with a lesser level of investment than 35.1%. Nobody doubts that capital formation is critical to a higher rate of growth in GDP, but efficiency lies not so much on the capital stock as its utilization.<br /><br />6. The present rate of investment is around 30% of GDP.<br /><br />7. Higher the capital output ratio, higher is growth of GDP.<br /><br />8. When the rate of investment increases the capital output ratio also increases.<br /><br />9. Efficiency of capital largely depends upon capital stock.<br /><br />10. The issue of efficiency of capital is now assuming adequate importance from the Government of India.<br /><br />Directions (Q. 11-15): A private firm has laid down following criteria for selection of Executive Officers (Finance): The candidate must<br /><br />(i) be a graduate in any discipline in first class with minimum 60% marks.<br /><br />(ii) have obtained postgraduate management degree/diploma with specialization in Finance with minimum 55% marks.<br /><br />(iii) be willing to work anywhere in India.<br /><br />(iv) be not less than 22 years and not more than 28 years of age as on 1.10.2006.<br /><br />(v) have cleared the selection test with minimum 50% marks.<br /><br />However, if a candidate satisfies all the above mentioned criteria except<br /><br />(a) at (ii) above, but has done post graduation in Economics with minimum 60% marks or has passed CA/ICWA exam, the case may be referred to the CEO of the firm.<br /><br />(b) at (i) above, but has a post-qualification experience of at least 2 years in finance department , the case may be referred to the board of directors.<br /><br />In each questions below information about one candidate is given.

Certain words are given in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.<br /><br />Farmers belonging to the Bharatiya Kishan Union have set fire to the trial plots of a Bt rice variety belonging to Mahyco that was being field-tested in Karnal. It turns out that the trial were being conducted in violation of biosafety standards. Farmers on whose fields the trials were being conducted had no idea what was planted, nor did they understand the implications of genetically-engineered (GE) rice containing the toxin gene from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (BT)<br /><br />Apart from the safety issue of eating genetically-engineered foods containing poison genes, there are other aspects that are particularly relevant to GE rice and India. India is an exporter of both Basmati and non-Basmati rice and has significant trade interests in this crop. If Indian rice were to be contaminated with genetically-engineered Bt rice, which is certain to happen, traders would lose their traditional rice markets in the European Union, Africa and the Middle East. All these regions have declared their opposition to genetically-engineered foods. That is the reason why rice exporters have appealed to government to halt further trials of GE rice.<br /><br />India shouldn't take the risk of cultivating GE rice not just from the trade point of view but also because it is a major centre of origin for rice. Mexico, which is the centre of origin and diversity for corn, has imposed a ban on not just the cultivation of GE corn, but also research in GE corn. Mexico has taken this position in order to safeguard the natural gene pool of corn, another major staple food of the world. India is one of the centres where rice originated. This means that the greatest number of rice and related genes are found in India.<br /><br />Centres of origin are considered high-risk areas for GE crops because if foreign genes contained in the GE variety were to move into the natural gene pool, the results could be potentially catastrophic. Scientists promoting agbiotech argue that rice is a self-pollinating crop and will not accept outside pollen and genes. This is not true since cross -pollination is known to occur in rice and there are several studies that show that the extend of cross- pollination depending on humidity and wind speed, can in fact be significantly high. Studies conducted in China and Latin America have shown that gene flow between GE rice and other rice happens at rates that are high enough to cause concern about gene transfer.<br /><br />One of the growing concerns about the impact of genetic engineering is gene-silencing. Experimental show that the introduction of foreign genes can cause gene-silencing in the plant that is receiving the foreign gene. This means certain genes in the plant will become silent (non- functional) and not produce what they normally should. Gene-silencing could have very grave implication if it were to spread to the natural gene pool by careless scientists.<br /><br />Maintaining genetic diversity is crucial for the long-term survival of any crop. When a crop variety somewhere becomes vulnerable either due to the onslaught of a disease or the soil becoming waterlogged or alkaline, scientists need to breed another variety of the crop for that region. They do this by searching for suitable genes in related varieties and the natural gene pool of rice and introduce harmful features like gene-silencing or change the normal functions of other genes, it would have terrible implications for food security of the rice-eating regions of the world.<br /><br />Although genetically-engineered crops and foods are being pushed into the market, there is little investment in their regulation and monitoring. Apart from that, not enough is understood about what happens when foreign genes are abruptly pushed into the genetic material of plants and animals. That is the reason why the biosafety process places such a premium on the precautionary principle. Essentially this says that when faced with uncertainty, it is better to be cautious and not proceed with genetic engineering.<br /><br /> <br /> <br /><br />6. What was the role of the farmers who gave their lands for field testing of Bt rice in Karnal?<br /><br />1) They gave their lands for the testing against heavy rental.<br /><br />2) They were in support of such a high-yield variety of the crop.<br /><br />3) They were ignorant the consequence of such a trial.<br /><br />4) They were in search of some experimentation in rice production.<br /><br />5) None of these<br /><br /> <br /> <br /><br />7. What keeps India in a commanding position in rice export to various foreign countries?<br /><br />1) Indian varieties of rice are considered to be in natural and pure form.<br /><br />2) India has cheaper varieties of rice compared to other countries.<br /><br />3) India has surplus rice production every year.<br /><br />4) India has gained numero uno position in terms of quality and variety of rice.<br /><br />5) None of these<br /><br /> <br /> <br /><br />8. What could be a major consequence if cultivation of GE rice is allowed in India?<br /><br />1) It will give the foreign countries an easy entry into our agriculture sector.<br /><br />2) It will open the path for research and experimentation in the field of agriculture.<br /><br />3) It will increase the profit margins of our farmers.<br /><br />4) It will make our country depending on foreign technology.<br /><br />5) None of these<br /><br /> <br /> <br /><br />9. What should we do to maintain the natural gene pool of rice in our country?<br /><br />1) We should not open our agriculture sector to the forces of globalization.<br /><br />2) We should protect it from being mixed with other breeds and genes.<br /><br />3) We should revise our policy of export of food grains.<br /><br />4) We should complete with the genetically-engineered rice produced in foreign countries.<br /><br />5) None of these<br /><br />10. Which of the following seems to be 'true' in the context of the passage?<br /><br />1) Mexico has banned the cultivation of GE rice.<br /><br />2) India has maintained its natural gene pool of corn so far.<br /><br />3) GE rice has made its firm ground in our country.<br /><br />4) GE crops can pose health hazards to mankind.<br /><br />5) None of these<br /><br />11. Which of the following seems to be 'false' in the context of the passage?<br /><br />1) Cross-pollination is not possible in the case of rice.<br /><br />2) Mexico has taken measures against GE corn.<br /><br />3) Introduction of GE rice is facing resistance in our country.<br /><br />4) GE crops are unsafe for human consumption.<br /><br />5) None of these<br /><br />12. What do you mean by gene-silencing in a crop?<br /><br />1) Gene silencing in a crop is a technique in which different varieties of a crop grown together.<br /><br />2) Gene silencing is a scientific term which is applied to boost the yield of a crop.<br /><br />3) In gene silencing method the application of foreign gene to any variety of crop increase its yield.<br /><br />4) The introduction of alien gene to a crop makes its natural gene dysfunct.<br /><br />5) None of these<br /><br /> <br /> <br /><br />13. What message is given in this passage?<br /><br />1) Save agriculture from the onslaught of globalization<br /><br />2) Protect the original variety of rice<br /><br />3) Ban the import of foreign food grains<br /><br />4) Say no to scientific experiment in agriculture<br /><br />5) None of these<br /><br />Answers:<br /><br />1.
