Directions for questions 127 to 131: Read the following passage carefully and answer the
questions given below it.

The average growth rate of the Indian economy over a period of 25 years since 1980-81 (financial
year beginning April) has been about 6.0 per cent, with the growth rate averaging 9.1 per cent
during the last two years. The economy has shown considerable resilience during the recent
years, as evidenced by the avoidance of adverse contagion impact of several shocks in the
Emerging Market Economies and the ability to cope with oil price increases. The strengthening of
economic activity in the recent years has been supported by persistent increase in domestic
investment rate from 22.9 per cent of GDP in 2001-02 to 33.8 per cent in 2005-06 coupled with
more efficient use of capital. Domestic saving rate has also improved from 23.5 per cent to 32.4
per cent during the same period. While the services sector continues to be the driver of growth
with a share of around 60 per cent in the overall GDP, a noteworthy development during the
recent years has been the continued recovery in industrial sector, particularly the manufacturing
sector supported by domestic as well export demand.

The financial sector has acquired greater strength, efficiency and stability by the combined effect
of competition, regulatory measures, policy environment and motivation among the market
players including banks. The Government securities market is quite deep, liquid and vibrant and
well developed in terms of instruments/processes/participants. The exchange rate of the rupee
has been flexible, particularly, in the last few years and the turnover in the foreign exchange
market has increased considerably. The stock market has been opened to foreign institutional
investors and is comparable with major international equity markets.

However there are certain challenges to be addressed. The poor state of the physical
infrastructure, both in terms of quantity and quality is considered to be most critical hindrance for
Indias progress by many. The most important issue here is regulatory framework and overall
investment climate, which are being addressed by the Government. Secondly, fiscal consolidation
still remains a matter of concern, especially in the eyes of the rating agencies. The recent budget
of the Central Government brings the consolidation on track. Studies on State finances by the
Reserve Bank of India give grounds for optimism in regard to their fiscal health. Two important
areas could be recognized which, if addressed would result in fiscal empowerment. One is
elimination of subsidies, which are not directly targeted to the poor or inappropriate, and the
second is elimination of most of the tax exemptions, which are patently distortionary.

Another challenging issue relates to development of agriculture. While over 60 per cent of the
workforce is dependent on agriculture, the GDP growth generated from agriculture is only
marginally above the rate of growth of the population, which is not adequate to ensure rapid
poverty reduction.

127. A noteworthy development during the recent period has been the:
(a) Rapid development of agriculture along with industrial growth.
(b) Rapid development of industries along with the services sector.
(c) Rapid development of agriculture along with the services sector.
(d) Rapid development of services along with agricultural sector.

128. What does fiscal consolidation imply in the above paragraph?


(a) Increase in savings.
(b) Reduction in unproductive Government expenditure.
(c) Reduction in taxes.
(d) Reduction in investment.

129. Which one of the following is not an ingredient of financial sector reforms?
(a) Exchange rate flexibility.
(b) Development of equity market.
(c) Development of infrastructure.
(d) Development of the Government securities market.

130. According to given paragraph, which one of the following has not contributed to rising

Directions for questions 132 to 136: Read the following passage carefully and answer the
questions given below it.

History of government in America shows a gradual development of the system. Local


governments were the first governments. The primitive tribe that chose the strongest man to be
its chief and the oldest men to form a council was establishing local government. It was seeking a
better safer life.

In the same way, the first English settlers who landed at Jamestown, Virginia, in 1607 soon
realized that they needed rules and leaders. At first, the settlers searched for gold and had to find
their own food and provide their own shelter. As food supplies began to run low, and as the
colonists faced hunger and disease, they saw that they needed to work together if the colony was
to survive. The colonists formed a council to make laws for the colony. They chose Captain John
Smith as president of the council to see that the laws were carried out. This government at
Jamestown was the first local government in America.

Today, local government is still the first and most important government in American lives. It
protects lives, provides safety, and homes, and it helps to keep environment clean. Local
government provides Americans with schools, libraries and other important services.
