Enabling an education that is pertinent to the economy and society is still a challenge to be addressed. (I)The sharing of educational materials has significant potential to improve the quality, transparency and accessibility of higher education systems. The OER has the tremendous potential to provide groups of people particularly who cannot afford a formal education and are disadvantaged with access to higher education. OER can contribute to the democratisation of higher education not only locally or regionally, but globally as well. (II)With the Japanese government focusing on every opportunity to emerge as a top-draw for foreign students, besides showing a keen interest in growing its international enrollment and boosting employment outcomes, Japan is soon set to become the destination of choice for higher studies amongst foreign students. (III)The problems that confront education today are low rates of enrolment, unequal access, poor quality of infrastructure and lack of relevance. The goals remain the same — expansion with inclusion and ensuring quality and relevant education. The aim should be to arrive at a proper estimate of universities and undergraduate institutions in order to plan a strategy for the next 20 years or so. (a)Only (I) (b)Only (II) (c)Only (III) (d)Both (I) and (III) (e)All (I), (II) and (III) Q2. The significant contributions by the ageing population depict that pejorative perceptions against them need to be challenged. (I)China’s working age population has been declining since 2012 and is projected to shrink by almost a quarter by 2050. This is not a slope, it is a cliff edge. The government’s about-face is unlikely to help much. The causal links between rising prosperity and declining fertility have been conclusively established. (II)A not inconsiderable benefit of a workforce aged over 65 is the wealth of experience: Porlock Futures’ executive committee of six has an average age of 70 and boasts retired executive directors of FTSE 100 companies, multinational managers, and international consultants. Their expertise helped them crowdfund £107,000 from 850 households in the local area. (III)Age is no longer a predictor of performance. “Old” is not a useful word to determine ability, any more than other stereotyped labels. Individuals will age differently, so employers and society should not make sweeping generalisations or judgments on the basis of chronological age. (a)Only (I) (b)Only (II) (c)Only (III) (d)Both (II) and (III) (e)All (I), (II) and (III)  Q3. The pervasive impact of technology has induced a healthy competition in the frictionless digital payments market. (I) The entry of WhatsApp into digital payments is set to significantly expand the digital payments market in India and could threaten the dominance of Paytm, highlighting the challenges that pure consumer payments firms face in defending their turf. (II)”Going cashless” has become the norm post-demonetization. Virtually every sector has been active in assessing and adopting different forms of digital payments. Sectors like transport, entertainment, and retail have proactively adopted digital payment mechanisms even beyond the traditional credit and debit cards. (III)As WhatsApp gets ready with its payment service in India, it will be one more among the many digital payments services available at our disposal. Since the demonetisation, the push for digital wallets has been immense. It has reached a point where slowly, but surely, a lot of online as well as offline establishments are accepting payment via digital wallet apps. (a)Only (I) (b)Only (III) (c)Both (I) and (II) (d)Both (II) and (III) (e)All (I), (II) and (III) Q4. The advancement in the generation of Renewable sources of energy is a welcome move in the energy sector. (I)The Renewable Purchase Obligations (RPOs) make it compulsory for all large consumers of energy to ensure that a certain percentage of that energy mix is from renewable sources such as wind and solar. The compulsion is like an implicit subsidy boost to the renewable sector. It generates demand for a sector in its infancy. (II)Instead, solar competes with coal, natural gas, hydro, and nuclear power. Solar, the newest to the mix, makes up less than 1 percent of the electricity market today but will be the world’s biggest single source by 2050, according to the International Energy Agency. Demand is so strong that the biggest limit to installations this year may be the availability of panels. (III)Floating windfarms are likely to be the next large-scale development in renewable energy. The first Hywind Scotland, developed by the Norwegian state oil giant, Statoil, has proved a greater success than its designers hoped. The five giant six-megawatt turbines, 25 miles east of Peterhead, produced more power than expected in the first three months and withstood hurricane-force winds and giant waves. (a)Only (I) (b)Only (II) (c)Only (III) (d)Both (II) and (III) (e)All (I), (II) and (III) Q5. The different methods to diagnose and treat cancer are still incompatible exercises. (I)Scientists at the Department of Science and Technology have fabricated highly biocompatible porous polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) nanoparticles as a versatile vehicle to deliver anti-cancer drugs to the nuclei of tumour cells without utilizing any intrinsic ligands (ions or molecules). However, the nucleus of any cell contains the majority of its genetic material. (II)A cancer patient feels more confident about a treatment if s/he understands what it is doing to his/her body. The main pathways to cancer treatment are surgery (aggressive or non-aggressive), radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Often, cancer drugs lead to side effects which doctors might not have predicted, and that leads to panic-stricken days and nights. (III)Currently, the most common treatment for cancer involves radiation and use of gamma rays to kill cancer cells. However, this inflicts collateral damage—healthy cells also get destroyed along with cancer cells. Radiation treatment with a cyber-knife is much more precise, but very expensive. (a)Only (I) (b)Only (III) (c)Both (I) and (II) (d)Both (II) and (III) (e)All (I), (II) and (III) To attempt the complete quiz refer to the links given below:
