Direction (Q. 4 - 8) : Below is given a passage followed by several possible inferences which can be drawn from the facts stated in the passage. You have to examine each inference separately in the context of the passage and decide upon its degree of truth or falsity.
Power is the core component of infrastructure needed for sustained development of all sectors of the economy. Yet the gap between supply and demand for electricity in India is wide and gets wider during peak hours. Power sector is still beset with the same problems which were identified more than a decade ago. Power generation during the last fifty years has registered significant growth. The installed capacity increased from 1300 MW at the time of Independence to 102267 MW by the end of last month, ie August 2001. However, even this substantial addition in power generation is far short of demand. One reason for this situation is the failure to utilise the installed capacity to the maximum extent. More than half of the total installed capacity is with State Electricity Boards which have huge accumulated losses and their operational efficiency is very low. Annual losses of the State Electricity Boards at the end of the Ninth Plan are estimated to be Rs, 24000 crore. This has led to large outstanding dues to Central Public Sector undertakings.

Pre-Independence growth in power generation was not as much as the growth in power generation in the post- Independence era.

Direction (Q. 9 - 10) : Each of the questions below consists of a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question. Read both the statements.
How many children participated in the sit-and-draw competition of a school ?
Statement: I. When each participant shaked his hand with every other, the number of total handshakes was 1431.
II. When all the participants were divided into four groups A, B, C and D, there was an interesting relation among the groups. If 2 be added to the no. of participants in A, subtracted from that in B, multiplied by that in D, and that in C is divided by 2, we get the same result in each case.
