ENGLISH

Directions (1-5): Read the following passage divided into the number of paragraphs carefully and answer the questions that follow it.

Paragraph 1: India’s ambitious plan to interlink rivers to achieve greater equity in the distribution of water in the country reached an important milestone on July 6, when water from the Godavari, its second-longest river, rushed to meet the fourth-longest, the Krishna. The two became the first of 30 rivers to be linked under the Interlinking of Rivers (ILR) program. Touted as the world’s largest irrigation infrastructure project, the ILR program involves construction of around 15,000 km of new canals and 3,000 big and small dams and storage structures. Broadly, it has two parts: the Himalayan rivers component with 14 links and the peninsular component with 16 links, which will transport 33 and 141 trillion liters of water, respectively, per year. The Godavari-Krishna link is part of the latter.

Paragraph 2: The idea of interlinking rivers isn’t new. Even in ancient times, rulers and engineers the world over sought to divert rivers to parched lands. In 1858, when India was under colonial rule, British engineer Sir Arthur Cotton proposed interlinking India’s major rivers for inland navigation but his plan remained on the drawing board. Variations of this project have been put up in more recent decades. But successive governments did not pursue these plans due to financial and environmental concerns. It was only with the Bharatiya Janata Party coming to power in 2014 – it is a strong proponent of interlinking rivers – that the ILR program took off.

Paragraph 3: India has multiple water-related woes. Besides its enormous dependence on the erratic monsoons, its basin-wise availability of water varies greatly due to uneven rainfall and population density. According to a Ministry of Water Resources report, in 2010 the average per capita availability of water in the Ganga-Brahmaputra-Meghna system was 20,136 cubic meters per year compared to 263 cubic meters in the Sabarmati basin. While a third of the country grapples with drought, an eighth struggles with floods. Interlinking rivers is seen as the way to deal with these problems. According to the Ministry of Water Resources, the ILR program will not only extend irrigation to an additional 35 million hectares of land and boost hydropower capacity by around 34,000 megawatts of electricity power but also will improve management of floods and droughts.

Paragraph 4: The ILR program involves transfer of water from “surplus” river basins to “deficit” ones. On the face of it, it appears to be just about diverting water. However, it isn’t that simple. Water will have to be channeled across different terrains, topographies, and elevations. It involves very complex engineering. And it comes with a hefty price tag. It is estimated to cost \$168 billion. This being a project that will take decades to complete, serious cost overruns can be expected. Engineering a diversion of water carries enormous human, ecological, and environmental costs too. Millions of people are likely to be displaced by the ILR’s canals and dams.

Paragraph 5: Environmentalists are drawing attention to the irreversible damage that reduced downstream flows would have on a river’s ecology and biodiversity. A change in the ecology of the River Ken on account of the Ken-Betwa link project in central India is expected to doom the already critically endangered gharial. Also, this project would submerge around 10 percent of the Panna Tiger reserve, reversing the huge gains of India’s tiger conservation project.

Q6. According to paragraph 1, what is the Interlinking of Rivers (ILR) program all about?

(a) The Godavari and the Krishna are the Himalayan rivers that became the part of the project Interlinking of Rivers (ILR) transporting trillion liters of water.
(b) Interlinking of Rivers program will bring investments as it will enable the government to transport many liters of the linked river’s water to other nations.
(c) To meet the basic demands of farmers, Government is stepping towards a project called Interlinking of Rivers. The project will link two or more rivers and thereby use its water for primary purposes.

(d) Interlinking of rivers refers to linking of rivers and using its water for the purpose like construction of canals, big and small dams and storage structures.

(e) All of the above statements are true.

Q7. “The Interlinking of Rivers (ILR) project has its roots in ancient times.” In what way is it correct to say that?

(I) It is evident from Ancient times that people are taking benefit by interlinking the rivers and using their water for their needs like transportation by rivers and canals etc.
(II) The idea of interlinking the rivers and using its water for many purposes like irrigation, inland navigation was derived in ancient times.
(III) Previous government has failed to follow this program as it would affect the environment and this project would disturb the budget of the economy.

(a) Only (I) is correct
(b) Only (II) is correct
(c) Both (I) and (II) are correct
(d) Both (II) and (III) are correct
(e) All are correct

Q8. Which of the following sentences cannot be inferred from paragraph 3?

(a) The Interlinking of Rivers (ILR) project will not only provide irrigation facilities but also boost hydropower capacity.
(b) Major portion of the country is dependent on monsoon.
(c) Interlinking of rivers can solve the problem of availability of water in the areas of uneven rainfall.
(d) In 2010 the average per capita availability of water in the Ganga-Brahmaputra-Meghna system was 20,136 cubic meters per year.
(e) Interlinking of the project requires higher man power and financial stability so that it is able to function smoothly.

Q9. Why the ILR project took such a long time to implement?

(I) Huge budget is required to make the ILR project work.
(II) The Interlinking of rivers is not that feasible project as many people residing near the rivers have to leave the place for the construction of dams and canals.
(III) The Interlinking of Rivers (ILR) project requires a much complicated engineering that needs a big task force to divert the water of rivers.

(a) Only (I) is correct
(b) Only (II) is correct
(c) Both (I) and (II) are correct
(d) Both (II) and (III) are correct
(e) All are correct

Q10. Which of the following statements can follow paragraph 4 to form a connection with paragraph 5?

(a) The ILR project requires a correct planning by engineers to implement it in a correct way.
(b) The damage which will be there after implementing the ILR project is irreversible as many people are to be displaced while river’s ecology will also get affected.
(c) For interlinking the rivers, the water will have to be channeled across different terrains, topographies, and elevations, which is found difficult to construct.
(d) The Interlinking of Rivers (ILR) program will supply the required water to parched lands.
(e) The Interlinking of Rivers (ILR) project is now gaining the traction, as compared to ancient times, by the present government to meet various demands.

### Solutions:

Reasoning

1. Ans.(b);

Only assumption II is implicit in the statement.

Since, it is not mentioned that extracurricular activities were given more importance over the studies thus, I cannot be implicit. For III, it doesn’t implicit because it is not mentioned that all those facilities provided by the school is going to help many women who are working or has any direct impact on the care of child.

However, II implicit because good facilities in school will affects the behavior, health, learning and overall growth achievement of the student, thus every parent like to send their children to the school which provide good facilities.

2. Ans.(b);

Only assumptions II is implicit in the statement.

Since, it is not clear that corporation has taken the residents of the area into confidence and assured them about the inconvenience caused due to the new construction of high-rise buildings thus, III cannot be implicit. Also, from I, it is not clear from the statement that the corporation has granted permission to builders for new construction because it will take care to fulfill the minimum requirements by providing infrastructure in the area thus, I cannot be implicit. However, it can be assumed that the construction of new high-rise buildings for the city will provide a good earning source to the corporation, thus only II can implicit.

Direction (3-5):

3. Ans.(a)

I is strong because it fosters sportsman spirit. II is a weak argument because the weakness of a team is known not only to its former players.

4. Ans.(a)

Only I is strong because nutritional condition of a child is directly related with the role of a mother and if the programme is community-based its result will be remarkable. II is a weak argument because it is a misinterpretation of the work ‘community’.

5. Ans.(a)

I is a strong argument because it is true that the outcome of the move will result as explained in the argument I. but II is weak because the abuse of a situation is inherent in any move.

ENGLISH

1. Ans. (d)

If we read Paragraph 1 carefully, we infer that only sentence (d) goes in harmony with the paragraph. Sentence (a) is wrong as the Godavari and Krishna, though being part of ILR project, are not Himalayan rivers rather they are peninsular rivers. Sentence (b) is wrong as it talks about investments by transporting the water to other nations, which is not related to paragraph. Sentence (c) is wrong as it talks about meeting the primary purpose of the farmer, which is not specific. Hence only sentence (d) is correct as it talks about what ILR project consists of.

2. Ans. (d)

Referring to paragraph 2, we can conclude that only sentences (II) and (III) are correct. “The Interlinking of Rivers (ILR) project has its roots in ancient times”, It is correct to say this as it is mentioned in the paragraph that many rulers and engineers from ancient times had sought to divert the water to dried lands. Sentence (III) is correct as it tells that previous government did not pursue these plans due to financial and environmental issues. Sentence (I) is not correct as the idea of using the water of interlinked rivers was not implemented. Hence option (d) is the correct choice.

3. Ans. (e)

All the above sentences can be inferred from paragraph 3 except sentence (e). Sentence (e) is not mentioned in the paragraph hence it cannot be inferred from paragraph 3.

4. Ans. (e)

All of the above factors are true as they are responsible for the delay in the implementation of ILR project. Hence option (e) is the correct choice.

5. Ans. (b)

While going through both the paragraphs, we find that here the demerits of the Interlinking of Rivers (ILR) program are discussed. The harm that living entities will get by constructing this project is discussed in this paragraph. Hence sentence (b) is the correct option that can follow paragraph 4 to form a connection with paragraph 5.
