Passage – I Today, India looks to be on course to join the league of developed nations. It is beginning to establish a reputation not just as the technology nerve-centre and back-office to the world, but also as its production centre. India’s secularism and democracy serve as a role model to other developing countries. There is great pride in an India that easily integrates with a global economy, yet maintains a unique cultural identity. But what is breath taking is India’s youth. For despite being an ancient civilization that traces itself to the very dawn of human habitation, India is among the youngest countries in the world. More than half the country is under 25 years of age and more than a third is under 15 years of age. Brought up in the shadow of the rise of India’s service industry boom, this group feels it can be at least as good if bot better than anyone else in the world. This confidence has then demonstrating a great propensity to consume, throwing away ageing ideas of asceticism and thrift. The economic activity created by this combination of a growing labour pool and rising consumption demand is enough to propel India to double-digit economic growth for decades. This opportunity also represents the greatest threat to India’s future. If the youths of India are not properly educated and if there are not enough jobs created, India will have forever lost its opportunity. India’s Information Technology and Business process Outsourcing industries are engines of job creation, but they still account for only 0.2 per cent of India’s employment. The country has no choice but to dramatically industrialise and inflate its economy. According to a recent survey, more than half of India’s unemployed within the next decade could be its educated youth.78. Consider the following statements : 1.

In the recent past, which sector has witnessed a phenomenal growth? (a) Heavy industry (b) Service industry (c ) Petrochemical industry (d) Textile industry81. Consider the following statements : 1. Rising consumption demand will retard economic growth. 2. India’s youth are its greatest opportunity as well as threat. W hich of the statements given above is/are correct? (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c ) both 1 and 2 (c ) neither 1 nor 282. Consider the following statements : 1. Information Technology sector provides a relatively large proportion of jobs in India. 2. In the coming decade only uneducated youth will remain deprived of employment opportunity. W hich of the statements given above is/are correct? (a) 1 only (b) 2 only (c ) both 1 and 2 (d) neither 1 nor 2Directions (Q. 83 to 92) : In this section 10 sentences are given. Each sentence has three parts (a), (b) and (c).
