Comprehension :- This section contains 4 comprehensions each describing theory, experiment, data etc. Ten
questions related to four comprehensions with two questions on first two comprehensions and three questions
on last two comprehensions. Each question of a comprehension has only one correct answer among the four
choices (1), (2), (3) and (4).
Comprehension # 1 (Q.91 & Q.92) :- The term birth control was first used by Mr. Margaret Sanger who
started a movement is USA to popularise it in 1916 for highlighting the world wide need of birth control,
she declared "the first right of every child is to be wanted, to be desired, to be planned with an intensity
of love that gives it its title to being". Today there is a pressing need for limiting the family size at
a personal level and for the control of the population at national level. there are following two main
types of birth control measures the contraception and abortion. Contraception is the prevention of
fertilisation without destroying fertility by natural, mechanical or chemical means. Use of condom,
occlusive , diaphragm, intrauterine Contraceptive devices (IUCD) like copper-T, use of spermicidal
agents, Oral contraceptives are some common method of birth control, Spermicidal chemicals are also
used. Another method of birth control is abortion which is defined as expulsion of products of
conception whether it be spontaneous or induced before 12 week of gestation. In India, the medical
termination of pregnancy (MTP act was passed by the Parliament in 1971 and came into force on
April 1, 1972. It liberalized the abortion law as a family welfare measure to ensure better health and
avoid risks to the lives of women.
91. Prevention of fertilisation with destroying fertility is known as :(1) Abortion
(2) MTP
(3) Contraception
(4) Abstinence
92. What is spermicidal agent ?
(1) A chemical that inactivates spermatids
(2) A chemical that kills spermatozoa
(3) A chemical that prevents the implantation of foetus
(4) A chemical that inactivates the testes
Comprehension # 2 (Q.93 & Q.94) :- The union of the cytoplasm and pronuclei of the male and female
gametes is known as the fertilization. The fertilization is the most commonly used method for the
production of the diploid zygotes is the sexually reproducing organisms of Metazoa & metaphyta, if
the fertilization occurs outside the body of the organism, it is known as external fertilization & if it occurs
inside the body of the organism then it is termed as internal fertilization.

Comprehension # 3 (Q.95 to Q.97) :- Our body is a well organised system and is made up of the structural
and functional units called cell. Cells are made up of different chemicals as carbohydrates, Proteins, Fats,
minerals and salts. The cell is also having the cell membrane through which it keeps the relation with the
external environment. Cell groups having same origin structure and function called as tissue, which further
organise into the organs. Most advanced animals have the organ system of organisation. All the body organs
work in co-ordination with each other and this coordination is established between the body organs by
nervous system and the endocrine system. If this coordination breaks body organs do not work properly
in animal which is followed by the appearance of disease. A healthy person is who is mentally physically
and socially well adjusted. Various diseases in body are identified by physicians on the basis of their
sysmptoms however, some of these are diagnosed by laboratory testing also. Diseases many be categorized
in to two groups, the infectious and noninfectious diseases .infectious diseases are caused by the infections
of micro organisms which are also known as the pathogens. Non-infectious diseases may be deficiency
diseases or due to metabolic disorders.

Comprehension # 4 (Q.98 to Q.100) :- Trophosphere is the lowest region of atmosphere which subjects
to differential heating, temperature inversion & convention currents. It extends from the surface of
the earth up to a height of 8-10 km at poles, 10-12 km at moderate altitude and 16-20 km at the equator.
Many importent climatic events such as cloud formation, lightening, thundering etc. Takes place in
trophosphere. Air temperature in this zone gradually decreases with height at the rate of about 6.5C
per km, toward upper layer of trophosphere the temperature may decreases to 60C.
