Passage 16 Being a member of the WTO, India is bound by the agreements that have been signed and ratified by its members, including itself. According to Article 6 of the Agriculture Agreement, providing minimum support prices for agricultural products is considered distorting and is subject to limits. The subsidy arising from 'minimal supports' cannot exceed 10 per cent of the value of agricultural production for developing countries. PDS in India entails minimum support prices and public stockholding of food grains. It is possible that, in some years,the subsidy to producers will exceed 10 per cent of the value of agricultural production
23. What is the crucial message conveyed by the above passage? (a) India should revise its PDS. (b) India should not be a member of WTO. (c) For India, food security collides with trade. (d) India provides food security to its poor.
Passage 17 * India's educational system is modelled on the mass education system that developed in the 19th century in Europe and later spread around the world The goal of the system is to condition children as good' citizens and productive workers. This suited the industrial age that needed the constant supply of a compliant workforce with a narrow set of capabilities. Our educational institutes resemble factories with bells, uniforms and batch-processing of learners, designed to getlearners to conform. But from an economic point of view, the environment today is very different. It is a complex, volatile and globally interconnected world
24. With reference to the above passage, the following assumptions have been made: 1. India continues to be a developing country essentially due to its faulty education system. 2. Today's learners need to acquire new-age skill-sets. 3. A good number of Indians go to some developed countries for education because the educational systems there are a perfect reflection of the societies in which they function. Which of the above assumptions is/are valid? (a) 1 and 3 only (b) 2 only (c) 2 and 3 only (d) 1, 2 and 3
