Ans. a) The Physical Guality of Life Index (PQLI) is an attempt to measure the quality of life or well- being of a country &The value is the average of three statistics: basic literacy rate, infant mortality, and life expectancy at age one, all equally weighted on a 0 to 100 scale.
It was developed for the Overseas Development Council in the mid-1970s by Morris David Morris, as one of a number of measures created due to dissatisfaction with the use of GNP as an indicator of development. A. PQLI might be regarded as an improvement but shares the general problems of measuring quality of life in a quantitative way. It has also been criticized because there is Vconsiderable overlap between infant mortality and life expectancy

ESE 2018 GS Paper Solution th regar Consider the following statements wi to atmospheric humidity: 1 31. Absolute humidity water vapour per unit volume- Hygrom humidity. Dew point is the temperature at whic the relative humidity is 75%. is the amount of 2 eter is used to measure relative 3 Which of the above statements are correct ? 1 and 2 only 1 and 3 only 2 and 3 only 1, 2 and 3 Cd)
Ans. a) The dew point is the temperature to which air must be cooled to become saturated with water vapor. A hygrometer is an instrument used for measuring the water vapor in the atmosphere. Humidity measurement instruments usually rely on measurements of some other quantity such as temperature, pressure, mass or a mechanical or electrical change in a substance as moisture is absorbed
