Model Questions for UPSC PRE CSAT PAPER SET - 72

Passage: Instruction for question- read the following passage and answer the questions that follow. Your answers to the questions should be based on the passage only.
The goal of keeping planet warming in check has moved further out of reach, the U.N. said in the latest of a flurry of reports pointing to looming disaster ahead of talks in Qatar. Country pledges for cutting climatealtering greenhouse gas emissions could see global average temperatures rise by three to five degrees Celsius this century, said a U.N. Environment Programme (UNEP) report.

The targeted limit is an increase of two degrees Celsius on pre-industrial levels. The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) reported a record increase of earth-warming gases in the atmosphere, while the World Bank warned of the planet-wide devastation a rise of four degrees Celsius wound cause.

UNEP said swift action could still see the world get back on track, but it would mean increasing pledges and slashing emissions by 14 per cent to about 44 billion tonnes in 2020 from an estimated 50.1 billion tonnes per year now. Scientists say global temperatures have already risen by about 0.8 degrees Celsius on average. More than 190 countries will meet for two weeks in Qatar seeking to draft a work programme leading to a new, global climate deal to be signed by 2015 and enter into force by 2020. They will also seek to put in place a follow-up phase for the Kyoto Protocol which binds rich nations to greenhouse gas emission cuts but runs out on December 31, 2012. UNEP said the concentration of warming gases like carbon dioxide has increase by about 20 per cent since 2000, picking up after a slump during the economic downturn of 2008-9. Barring swift action, emissions were likely to reach 58 gigatonnes in 2020.

1. With reference to the passage consider the following

statements1.

The rise in average temperature this century could be one to three degrees celsius more than the targeted limit at the current rate of climate altering greenhouse gas emissions.

2. Concentration of warming gases like Carbon dioxide needs to be checked if the targeted limit of average temperature rise is to be achieved on preindustrial levels. Which of the statements given above is/are correct?

(a) Only 1
(b) Only 2
(c) Both 1 and 2
(d) Neither 1 nor 2

2. A slump in CO2 emissions during the economic downturn of 2008-09 resulted in

1. 20% increase in carbon dioxide concentration as compared to 2000 estimates.
2. an increase in global temperatures by about 0.8 degrees celcius on average.

Pick your answer from the following codes:

(a) Only 1
(b) Only 2
(c) Both 1 and 2
(d) None of these

Passage: Instruction for question- read the following passage and answer the questions that follow. Your answers to the questions should be based on the passage only. Although genetic mutations in bacteria and viruses can lead to epidemics, some epidemics are caused by bacteria and viruses that have undergone no significant genetic change. In analyzing the latter, scientists have discovered the importance of social and ecological factors to epidemics. Poliomyelitis, for example, emerged as an epidemic in the United States in the twentieth century; by then, modern sanitation was able to delay exposure to polio until adolescence or adulthood, at which time polio infection produced paralysis. Previously, infection had occurred during infancy, when it typically provided lifelong immunity without paralysis. Thus, the hygiene that helped prevent typhoid epidemics indirectly fostered a paralytic polio pidemic.  Another example is Lyme disease, which is caused by bacteria that are transmitted by deer ticks. It occurred only sporadically during the late nineteenth century but has recently become prevalent in parts of the United States, largely due to an increase in the deer population that occurred simultaneously with the growth of the suburbs and increased outdoor recreational activities in the deer’s habitat. Similarly, an outbreak of dengue hemorrhagic fever became an epidemic in Asia in the 1950’s because of ecological changes that caused Aides-aegypti, the mosquito that transmits the dengue virus, to proliferate. The stage is now set in the United States for a dengue epidemic because of the inadvertent introduction and wide dissemination of another mosquito, Aedes albopictus.

3. The passage suggests that a lack of modern sanitation would make which of the following most likely to occur?

(a) An outbreak of Lyme disease
(b) An outbreak of dengue hemorrhagic fever
(c) An epidemic of typhoid
(d) An epidemic of paralytic polio among infants

4. According to the passage, the outbreak of dengue hemorrhagic fever in the 1950’s occurred for which of the following reasons?

(a) The mosquito Aedes aegypti was newly introduced into Asia.
(b) The mosquito Aedes aegypti became more numerous.
(c) The mosquito Aedes albopictus became infected with the dengue virus.
(d) Individuals who would normally acquire immunity to the dengue virus as infants ever not infected until later in life.

5. It can be inferred from the passage that Lyme disease has become prevalent in parts of the United States because of which of the following?

(a) The inadvertent introduction of Lyme disease bacteria to the United States.
(b) The inability of modern sanitation methods to eradicate Lyme disease bacteria.
(c) A genetic mutation in Lyme disease bacteria that makes them more virulent.
(d) An increase in the number of humans who encounter deer ticks.

Model Questions for UPSC PRE CSAT PAPER SET - 71

Passage

Studies of the factors governing reading development in young children have achieved a remarkable degree of consensus over the past two decades. The consensus concerns thecausal role of ‘phonological skills’ in young children’s reading progress. Children who have good phonological skills, or good ‘phonological awareness’ become good readers andgood spellers. Children with poor phonological skills progress more poorly. In particular, those who have a specific phonological deficit are likely to beclassified as dyslexic by the time they are 9 or 10 years old.

Phonological skills in young children can be measured at a number of different levels. The term phonological awareness is a global one, and refers to a deficit in recognising smaller units of sound within spoken words. Development work has shown that this deficit can be at the level of syllables, of onsets and rimes, or phonemes. For example, a 4-year old child might have difficulty in recognising that a word like valentine has three syllables, suggesting a lack of syllabic awareness. A five-year-old might have difficulty in recognising that the odd word out in the set of words fan, cat, hat, mat is fan. This task requiredan awareness of the sub-syllabic units of the onset and the rime. The onset corresponds to any initial consonants in a syllable and the rime corresponds to the vowel and to any following consonants. Rimes correspond to rhyme in single-syllable words, and so the rime in fan differs from the rime in cat, hat and mat. In longer words, rime and rhyme may differ. The onsets in valentine are /v/ and /t/ and the rimes correspond to the spelling patterns ‘al’, ‘en’ and ‘me’. A six-year-old might have difficulty in recognisingthat plea and pray begin with the same initial sound. This is a phonemic judgement. Although the initial phoneme /p/ is shared between the two words, in plea it is part of the onset ‘pl’ and in pray it is part of the onset ‘pr’. Until children can segment the onset (or the rime), such phonemic judgements are difficult for them to make. In fact, a recent survey of different developmental studies has shown that the different levels of phonological awareness appear to emerge sequentially. The awareness of syllables, onsets, and rimes appears to merge at around the ages of 3 and 4, long before most children go to school. The awareness of phonemes, on the other hand, usuallyemerges at around the age of 5 or 6, when children have been taught to read for about a year. An awareness of onsets and rimes thus appears to be a precursor of reading, whereas an awareness of phonemes at every serial position in a word only appears to develop as reading is taught. The onsetrime and phonemic levels of phonological structure, however, are not distinct. Many onsets in English are single phonemes, and so are some rimes (e.g. sea, go, zoo).

The early availability of onsets and rimes is supported by studies that have compared the development of phonological awareness of onsets, rimes, and phonemes in the same subjects using the same phonological awareness tasks. For example, a study by Treiman and Zudowski used a same/different judgement task based on the beginning or the end sounds of words. In the beginning-sound task, the words either began with the same onset, as in plea and plank, or shared only the initial phoneme, as in plea and pray.

In the end-sound task, the words either shared the entire rime, as in spit and wit, or shared only the final phoneme, as in rat and wit. Treiman and Zudowski showed that four-and five-year-old children found the onset-rime version of the same/different task significantly easier than the version based on phonemes. Only the six-year-olds, who had been learning to read for about a year, were able to perform both versions of the tasks with an equal level of success.

1. According to the passage which of the following statements is true?

(a) A mono-syllabic word can have only one onset
(b) A mono-syllabic word can have only one rhyme but more than one rime
(c) A mono-syllabic word can have only one phoneme
(d) All of the above

2. Which of the following is likely to emerge last in the cognitive development of a child?

(a) Rhyme
(b) Rime
(c) Onset
(d) Phoneme

3. A phonological deficit in which of the following is likely to be classified as dyslexia?

(a) Onset judgement
(b) Rime judgement
(c) Phonemic judgement
(d) Anyone or more of the above

4. The Treiman and Zudowski experiment found evidence to support which of the following conclusions?

(a) At age six reading instruction helps children perform both the same/different judgement tasks
(b) The development of onset-rime awareness precedes the development of an awareness of phonemes .
(c) At age four to five children find onset -rime version of the same/different task significantly easier
(d) The development of onset-rime awareness is a necessary and sufficient condition for the development of an awareness of phonemes

Passage

The lithosphere or outer shell of the earth is made up of about a dozen rigid plates that move with respect to one another. New lithosphere is created at midocean ridges by the upwelling and cooling of magma from the earth’s’ interior. Since new lithosphere is continuously being created and the earth is not expanding to any appreciable extent, the question arises: What happens to the “old” lithosphere? The answer came in the late. 1960s as the last major link in the theory of sea-floor spreading and plate tectonics that has revolutionised our understanding of tectonic processes, or structural deformation in the earth and ha: provided a unifying theme for many diverse observations, the earth sciences. The old lithosphere is subducted, or pushed down, into the earth’s mantle the thick shell of. redhot rock beneath the earth’s thin, cooler crust and abo.ve its metallic(partly melted) core. As the formerly rigid plate descends, it slowly heats up and over period of millions of years, it is absorbed into the general circulation of the earth’s mantle. The subduction of the lithosphere is perhaps the most significant phenomenon in global tectonics.

Subduction no only explains what happens to old lithosphere but also accounts for many of the geologic processes that shape the earth’s surface. Most of the’ world’s volcanoes anti earthquakes are associated with descending lithospheric plates. The prominent island arcs-chains of islands such a the Aleutians, the Kuriles, the Marianas, and the islands (Japan-are surface expressions of the subduction process The deepest trenches of the world’s oceans, including the Java and Tonga trenches and all others associated wit island arcs, mark the seaward boundary of subduction zones. Major mountain belts, such as the Andes and the Himalayas, have resulted from the convergence an subduction of lithospheric plates. To understand the subduction process, it is necessary to look at the thermal regime of the earth. The temperature within the earth at first increase rapidly with depth reaching about 1,200 degrees Celsius at a depth of 100 kilometres. Then they increase more g  phases, or more compact crystal structures, as they are subjected to higher pressure during descent. Finally, heat is generated by friction, shear  tresses and the dissipation of viscous motions atboundaries between the moving lithospheric plate and

1 surrounding mantle. Among all these sources, the first a fourth contribute the most toward the heating of 1 descending lithosphere.

5. According to the passage, which of the following statements is/are true of the earth’s mantle?

I. It is in a state of flux.
II. Its temperature far exceeds that of the lithosphere.
III. It eventually incorporates the subducted lithosphere.

(a) I only
(b) I and III
(c) II only
(d) I, II and III

The goal of keeping planet warming in check has moved further out of reach, the U.N. said in the latest of a flurry of reports pointing to looming disaster ahead  of talks in Qatar. Country pledges for cutting climate- altering greenhouse gas emissions could see global  average temperatures rise by three to five degrees Celsius this century, said a U.N. Environment Programme (UNEP) report.

   The targeted limit is an increase of two degrees Celsius on pre-industrial levels. The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) reported a record increase of earth-warming gases in the atmosphere, while the World Bank warned of the planet-wide devastation a rise of four degrees Celsius wound cause.

   UNEP said swift action could still see the world get back on track, but it would mean increasing pledges and slashing emissions by 14 per cent to about 44 billion tonnes in 2020 from an estimated 50.1 billion tonnes per year now. Scientists say global temperatures have already risen by about 0.8 degrees Celsius on average. More than 190 countries will meet for two weeks in Qatar seeking to draft a work programme leading to a new, global climate deal to be signed by 2015 and enter into force by 2020. 

   They will also seek to put in place a follow-up phase for the Kyoto Protocol which binds rich nations to greenhouse gas emission cuts but runs out on December 31, 2012. UNEP said the concentration of warming gases like carbon dioxide has increase by about 20 per cent since 2000, picking up after a slump during the economic downturn of 2008-9.
