Railroads were a decisive component in determining the outcome of World
War II and played an important role in the conflict. Railroads facilitated the
quicker movement of troops, reinforcements, and supplies. During the war, it
was regular practice to attack ports, railway tunnels, and significant bridges.
The Allied powers are said to have abstained from bombing historical
locations like forts, castles, and churches. Germany's Rhine region has many
mountains and significant railway tunnels that were essential for the
movement of cargo. To overcome this problem, the Nazis came up with an
idea to protect these tunnels which now serve as attractive tourist places in
that region.
Which concept did the Nazis adopt?
Answer
Nazis disguised the railway tunnels by
making structures resembling castle and
churches.
Question 7
The Rajput warriors employed various tactics in their wars. Though this
particular tactic X is not as common or well-documented, it could have been
a creative method to create confusion and mislead the enemy. They used to
be on horses and the other side on elephants. The elephants carrying the
enemies would instinctively not attack rajputs after doing X, giving them a
chance to attack first. The horses would then place their front legs on the
elephant’s head and rider attacks the mahout with a spear. Employing X could
include using elaborate costumes, props, or structures. This strategy would
aim to exploit the psychological impact of facing what seemed like a
squadron of powerful war elephants.
What is X?
Answer
The horses were made to wear
costumes of elephants. Dressed
up with fake trunks and other
paraphernalia, these horses
would look like small-sized
elephants. This created a
misconception in the minds of
the enemies, hence they would
refrain from charging ahead.
Question 8
The Great Wall is the largest man-made project in the world. The complete
route is over 20,000 km, stretching from the eastern seaside to the western
desert in northern China. The text bricks are one of the many attractions of
the Great Wall. Starting from the third tower upwards in the eastern section,
there appear to be more and more text bricks on the wall. The text bricks on
the walls are mainly from the Ming Dynasty. The texts contain key

Question 1
The current state of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) in Indian
politics, as per political pundits is partly attributed to a decision taken by
them in the 1990s. In the year 1996, given the circumstances of those days,
the allies of the CPI(M) in the United Front left a choice to the party.

Court transferred the probe to the CBI. Before this, in a plea to setup a 3-
judge team for this, Justices B.V. Nagarathna and Augustine dismissed it
saying, HC is looking at this and they don't need to interfere. When the

criticism, claiming "Women's life is important irrespective of the place and
the party in power".

at the Centre and the injustice being done by it to various state
governments. This party gained popularity very quickly among the masses
in its state of origin and stormed into power in its very first outing by

Answer
Party - Telugu Desam Party
General Elections used to happen around winter
until then, with cold and chilly weather across
the country. Nara Chandrababu Naidu of the
TDP convinced Atal Bihari Vajpayee to prepone
both the state and General elections just after
his accident to garner votes on account of a
sympathy wave and the fame of Vajpayee. Now
summer elections are becoming a problem due
to scorching heat over the years.
Back
Question 7
Sometime ago in the last century, there was a perceptible anger against the
then government. The then President of _ (a party) publicly apologised for
the incident. At the same time, it was clear that the Liberhan Commission
had directly or indirectly named X in the action. Ahmed ___, one of the
party leaders said there was a perception of untimely action on part of X as
the head. It was publicly declared before elections that X was denied a
ticket due to the same. Ahmed said, "It is my personal opinion that he was
denied a ticket just to keep public anger in control.” But people also believe
that it was done due to the ongoing fight between the two leaders
concerned over power.
ID X and the issue on which he was denied the ticket.
Answer
X - P. V. Narasimha Rao
He was denied a ticket due to his failure in protecting the Babri Masjid,
despite him being at the helm of the Government.
Back
Question 8
There are different claims for X quoted by different people, including the
Government and the Opposition.
1. He wanted to concentrate on total administration and betterment of
everyone, so he did not want other activities to come in his way.
2. With his friend as the subordinate, he wanted a lighter load in main
governance to concentrate on his personal expansion.
3. These decisions helped him from getting into trouble when certain issues
came out in future. If he hadn’t taken these precautions, he would have
been directly involved and found himself on a risky ground.
(Continuation in next slide)
Question 8
This was thought to benefit him when the subordinate initially got exposed
(allegedly) but this protection didn't last long as a highly anticipated action
occurred which shook the Indian political circles.
ID what is X and the last incident.
Answer
X is Arvind Kejriwal not holding any ministerial portfolios as the Chief
Minister of Delhi. He assigned all portfolios to his Cabinet Ministers.
The incident is his recent arrest in the Delhi excise policy scam.
Back
Question 9
An incident (allegedly due to political motivation) happened in a southern
state regarding a senior political leader of that state. When protests were
happening against this across the country, a minister (of party X) from a
neighbouring state commented, "This happened in your state and has no
connection with us. We can't agree for protests which disturb the high
financial business of our state".
This sparked widespread criticism and that party X regretted it's statement
later due to the crisis that it is facing. A similar incident happened to a key
member of X last month and X started protests in their state. Opponents
and critics, satirically, reminded X that it is not related to the state and
happened in Delhi; so they asked X not to disturb the business of the state
and stop the protests.
ID X and the second incident.
Answer
X - BRS
Arrest of Kalvakuntla Kavitha in the Delhi excise policy scam.

  • 4. Question 1 The image of the number plate with an 'X' on the car belonging to Union Home Minister Amit Shah has been circulating widely on social media, sparking curiosity and speculation. This phenomenon gained attention when a video released by a news agency on February 29 showcased Amit Shah's vehicle, adorned with a number plate displaying the aforementioned attribute. Interestingly, this peculiar feature was not exclusive to Amit Shah's car; Defence Minister Rajnath Singh's vehicle was also observed bearing a similar 'X' designation on its number plate. ID the feature/ X.
  • 5. Question 2 X is a pejorative term first used by abolitionists in the period of 1860s in Missouri, to refer those who opposed the abolition for slavery. However, X is recently used to target a certain demographic and generation, and it became very popular during the mid 2010s and popularised by commentators, pundits, trolls and social media influencers alike in the west. ID the reason why the Anti-Abolitionists were called X.
  • 6. Question 3 Pakistan's history has been dominated by political unrest and instability, beginning immediately after the country gained its independence. Following the death of Jinnah, the assassination of Liaquat Ali Khan, Pakistan's first prime minister, is considered the most horrific incident in the country's political history. Khan was shot twice in the chest on October 16, 1951, while giving a speech to a crowd of 100,000 people at Company Bagh (Company Gardens), Rawalpindi. Afterwards, the garden was renamed Liaquat Bagh in memory of Liaquat Ali Khan. Political parties have been prohibited from holding rallies there on numerous occasions due to an incident that happened in the late 2000s. What is the reason behind the prohibition on rallies at Liaquat Bagh?
  • 7. Question 4 The ban on certain practice in the Parliament finds its origin in the UK Parliamentary System. Though not officially rendered in the UK constitution, it finds a mention in the rules laid out by Erskine May in his Parliamentary Etiquette Manual. It says, "Members must not disturb a member who is speaking, by chanting, ___, booing, exclamation or other interruptions." So in order to bypass these obligations, the lawmakers came up with a way which one would spot during Parliamentary sessions. ID what was banned and what new practice came into being.
  • 8. Question 5 There are various political models which try to depict different ideologies across the political spectrum in one form or another. Often most of these illustrate the spectrum as a straight line with the far-left and the far-right on the opposite poles. However the ___ theory advocates a completely different perspective with it's peculiar shape. Popularized by Jean-Pierre Faye, a French Philosopher in 2002, it examines the degree of closeness and similarities between these two extremist ideologies. According to him, the far left was no sane than the far right and used similar tactics of hate and fear mongering to generate support amongst the masses. ID the theory/ FITB.
  • 9. Question 6 The Harappan civilization belonged to the bronze-age society that flourished on Indian soil. The name X is reputed to signify “the mound of the dead.” The archaeological importance of the site was first recognised in 1922, one year after the discovery of Harappa.The western mound of X consisted of all the important administrative structures like the Y, granaries, and the College of Priests. While the eastern or low-lying part of the town was meant for the settlement of commoners. Y, a rectangular public pool situated in the citadel complex, is also called the "earliest public water tank of the ancient world." (Continuation on the next slide)
  • 10. Question 6 Most scholars agree that this tank would have been used for special religious functions where water was used to purify and renew the well-being of the bathers. Nonetheless, it is known to be a structural masterpiece with many modern-day features. ID X and Y.
  • 11. Question 7 A significant dispute erupted in 2016 following a Facebook post by Norwegian author Tom Egeland. In his post, Egeland discussed "seven photographs that changed the history of warfare," one of which being the famous image taken by Nick UT who won the Pulitzer Prize of 1973 due to this photograph. The Norwegian prime minister at the time said that the picture was the one that "shaped world history" because of how heated the uproar was. Facebook was finally forced to back down owing to mounting criticism after the most popular newspaper in Norway, Afterposten, published an article criticising the social media platform and used the same image to mock Facebook. What was the controversy that took place in 2016? (Image on next slide)
  • 12.
  • 13. Question 8 In the year 2014, Mr. V. Panduranga Rao, a political activist from Telangana, came up with a weird proposal and presented it to the ECI. He stated that like political parties have an electoral symbol, even ___ must have one. Underlining the importance of giving an attractive symbol to ___ to highlight its importance, the social activist told the allotment of ___ as symbol would attract many. According to him, such decision would stress upon the corruptance and laziness that prevails in our system and shame our politicians who do little to address the needs of the public. Moreover it would motive politicos to work diligently towards public service. For what did he seek an electoral symbol and what was it?
  • 14. Question 9 There are certain reasons pertaining to specific features of the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha. The members of the Lok Sabha are directly elected by the public (grassroot level of democracy) is stated to be a reason. As for the Rajya Sabha, its members are elected by the MLAs of various states, thus proving them to be special and separate from the rest. So to provide a royal stride to it, a certain feature was incorporated when the Parliament was constructed. ID the features.
  • 15. Question 10 Historical evidences show that both these warrior clans (X and Y) were descendants of the mountain priests of Yamabushi. Members of both the clans were hired to act as spies as well as assassins. However it's the Y clan that stands villainized in the annals of history. This is because of the tactics they employed, in which they formed false groups of themselves and attacked rivals. A reason for this is attributed to the fact that Y were hired by both the sides in an event of war. On the other hand, X clan earned recognition for their loyalty towards the imperial families and their just practices in warfare. ID X and Y, familiar to most of us, thanks to the field of entertainment.
  • 16. Question 11 Shown in the figure are __________(10) of X signifying one of the most notable events in Indian history that arose due to a rumour associated with them of defiling religions. ID X/FITB and how did they lead to the event talked about?
  • 17. Question 12 One of the earliest geographers from the West who visited India (about 320 BC) was X, as an ambassador of the Seleucid dynasty ruler to the Mauryan emperor Chandragupta Maurya. He recorded his commentary on the country's geography, traditions, etc. in a popular book ___. An interesting find from the book is the mention of the Greek hero Hercules in India, believed to have lived in India by X. Historians state that it was probably a description of the deities Krishna and Balarama, belonging to the Shurasena tribe, which also found mention in the book. This concept was later revisited by diplomats in the ensuing decades, pointing out the banner of "Herakles" carried by Y's army during a historic face-off, arguing that Y could've indeed belonged to the Shurasena tribe. ID X & Y.
  • 18. Question 13 The scene depicted is the one, that the __ founders of Tenochtitlán, of the Aztec empire, supposedly saw in 1325, which met their prophecies of the predestined site for their capital. They built their capital city, Tenochtitlán, on the spot where they observed an eagle — a potent symbol in Aztec ideology — perched atop a nopal cactus and clutching a snake in its talons. Where can this scene be seen commonly, if one observes close enough? (Image on next slide)
  • 20. Question 14 In 1995 at the City of Hamburg, the X exhibition was inaugurated. The intention of the exhibition was to debunk a popular postwar myth regarding about a particular organisation X which was then part of Nazi Germany. According to the myth, X was not involved in the Nazi German War Crimes and the blame was placed entirely on other powerful organisations which were closer to the Nazi Party. The exhibition was controversial as critics accused the organisers of fabricating evidence, which was later disproved. There was also so much outrage among certain people, that a war veteran who was a part of X immolated himself and there was a terrorist attack both supported by neo-nazi extremists. What is X?
  • 21. Question 15 In July 2022, the Indian dairy brand Amul released a cartoon featuring the two final candidates for the post of the Prime Minister of UK, X (left) and Y(right), before the fifth round of ____, the final round to decide the winner. The cartoon's title was a query about X, and the round's outcome, framed as a wordplay on both the candidates' names. What was the query? (Image on the next slide)
  • 22.
