Directions (11-15): Below in each questions, some sentences are given, find the sentence which is not really contributing to the main theme and OUT of the passage or find the odd sentence and rearrange the remaining sentences to make a coherent paragraph. 

Q11. (A) There has to be a shift away from large budgets for collection and transport by private contractors, to the processing of segregated garbage. 
(B) Improving on the national record of collecting only 80% of waste generated and being able to process just 28% of that quantum, requires behaviour modification among citizens and institutions. 
(C) But what is more important is that the municipal bodies put in place an integrated system to transport and process what has been segregated at source. 
(D) More than a year after the notification of the much-delayed Solid Waste Management Rules, cities and towns are in no position to comply with its stipulations, beginning with the segregation of different kinds of waste at source and their scientific processing. 
(E) Neither are urban local governments treating the 62 million tonnes of waste generated annually in the country as a potential resource. They have left the task of value extraction mostly to the informal system of garbage collectors and recyclers.

Q12.

(B) In the absence of stakeholders at the local body level, recoverable resources embedded in discarded materials are lost due to dumping. 
(C) Quantum is the Latin word for amount and, in modern understanding, means the smallest possible discrete unit of any physical property, such as energy or matter. 
(D) But it is a major opportunity lost. Organic waste that could help green cities and feed small and affordable household biogas plants is simply being thrown away. 
(E) Organic refuse, which forms about 50% of all garbage, readily lends itself to the generation of compost or production of methane for household use or power generation.
