Directions (Q. 2 – 1): Read the information carefully and answer the following questions : People need a high speed train to travel in India and they need it everywhere. But should the government rush into building high speed bullet trains and the required lives for them. Before deserving the high speed trains many more things need to be done for the Indian railways so that people can travel fast, safe and with dignity.
A) Instead of investing huge resources to construct a relatively short stretch of track for a bullet train, the government must first improve the services for general trains.
B) There is a need to improve the safety standards in the Indian railways network. The railways should improve the cleanliness and hygiene inside the trains on platforms and along the tracks.
C) A train running late should become the exception rather than the rule. People should not find any kind of difficulties in finding out the train, when it's late and standing on the platform.
D) The Indian railway which follows the robust engineering practices can help to improve the services with all its latest technology and by its best personnel.
E) The railway does not need much additional space to lay new tracks. If requires determination and training of personnel and at the same time requires discipline, a change in attitude and a sense of accountability, without improving all these the bullet train project has little chance of success.
F) The Indian railway is continuing to evolve and undertake steps to improve its functioning as the world's, largest transportation organisation. It must take the help of our Eastern friends 'Japan' who gave us the technology to start our automotive industry, will also help us to upgrade and improve the lifeline of the nation.

6. Which of the following among (E), (B), (A) and (C) will weaken the chances of laying down the project of bullet train in India ?

7. Renewable energy sector in the country missed the capacity of additional target for the second year in a row. As against the target of 4325 MW, the new capacity addition stood at 3640 MW. The year saw cumulative installed capacity in the green sector cross 30,000 MW. Which of the following may be the reason for not fulfilling the target?
1) All segments such as wind, solar, small hydro, Biomass and waste to power added lower than their annual targets.
2) The power generation in wind sector was 962 M.W as against 1100 MW. While wind segments capacity addition stood at 2083 MW as against the target of 2500 MW.
3) The wind energy based capacity addition during FY 2013 had fallen sharply on account of discontinuation of tax depreciation benefits and lack of clarity on continuation of Generation Based Incentives (GBI).
4) Both 1 and 2
5) Recovery in wind capacity addition in FY 2014 was aided by the reintroduction of Generation Based Incentive (GBI) scheme in September 2013.
2. 5; There is no any point mentioned which can be a
strong argument for laying down of track for bullet train.
3. 5; Only D and F talks about improvement of services.
A points out about the diversion of investment.
B points out about the improvement of safety standards.
4.3; Only E can be inferred from the given points.
5. 5; A, B and F can be an immediate course of action because it talks improvement in all major services provided by the Indian railway. F talks about how to make improvement in Indian railway.
6. 5; First improve the services of Indian railway and then two government should think of laying down the tracks for bullet train. B and A talks about the improvement in services. 3 talks about the difficulties faced by Indian people.
7. 4; Only option 1 and 2 talks about the shortage in fulfilling the target of energy sector. While option 5 talks about the increase in the capacity. Option 3 talks about the data in 2013.
