Answer: liver-Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver. The condition can be self-limiting or can progress to fibrosis (scarring), cirrhosis or liver cancer. Hepatitis viruses are the most common cause of hepatitis in the world but other infections, toxic substances (e.g. alcohol, certain drugs), and autoimmune diseases can also cause hepatitis.

There are 5 main hepatitis viruses, referred to as types A, B, C, D and E. These 5 types are of greatest concern because of the burden of illness and death they cause and the potential for outbreaks and epidemic spread. In particular, types B and C lead to chronic disease in hundreds of millions of people and, together, are the most common cause of liver cirrhosis and cancer.

Hepatitis A and E are typically caused by ingestion of contaminated food or water. Hepatitis B, C and D usually occur as a result of parenteral contact with infected body fluids. Common modes of transmission for these viruses include receipt of contaminated blood or blood products, invasive medical procedures using contaminated equipment and for hepatitis B transmission from mother to baby at birth, from family member to child, and also by sexual contact. Acute infection may occur with limited or no symptoms, or may include symptoms such as jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), dark urine, extreme fatigue, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

[3] 26

[4] 28

Answer: 28

3556 = 4 x 7 x 127 and

[1] 10

[2] 15

[3] 20

[4] 25

Answer: 25

Given, a + b = 5

and 3a + 2b = 20

=> 3a + 2(5 – a) = 20

=> 3a + 10 – 2a = 20

=> a + 10 = 20

=> a = 10

b = 5 – a = 5 – 10 = – 5

Hence, 3a + b = 3 x 10 – 5

= 30-5 = 25.

Q.13) If the sum of a number and its square is 182, what is the number?

[1] 15

[2] 26

[3] 28

[4] None of these

Answer: None of these

Let the number is x

Then, x+x² = 182

 x²+x-182= 0

 x²+14x-13x-182= 0

 x(x+14) – 13(x+14) = 0

 (x-13) (x+14) = 0

 x-13= 0 or x+14=0

x= +13 or x= -14

Hence, number is 13, -14.

[3] 1895


Answer: 1835 – On 2 February 1835, British historian and politician Thomas Babington Macaulay presented his ‘Minute on Indian Education’ that sought to establish the need to impart English education to Indian ‘natives’.

Macaulay’s proposals were officially sanctioned in March, 1835. In 1837, English was made the court language. In 1844, high government posts were open to Indians.

Macaulay was a proud Englishman convinced of his own nation’s greatness and achievements, which he considered the best whether it was in the sciences or the arts. Nothing wrong with that, except that he was perhaps too prejudiced to see things from a different perspective. His famous minute will reveal his scant regard for anything Indian.

Macaulay was a proud Englishman convinced of his own nation’s greatness and achievements, which he considered the best whether it was in the sciences or the arts. Nothing wrong with that, except that he was perhaps too prejudiced to see things from a different perspective. His famous minute will reveal his scant regard for anything Indian.

In his minute on education, he justified the use of English as the medium of instruction, and also the teaching of western education to Indians.

He lampooned Indian knowledge and languages and thought them completely worthless. For instance, he said of Indian literature:

“…a single shelf of a good European library was worth the whole native literature of India and Arabia.”
