Sample Questions to Solve IBPS Clerk Prelims 2021 Memory Based English Paper

Directions (1 - 5): Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow:

For a country, that is home to a quarter of the world’s hungry —195 million out of 795 million globally — the recent spike in the prices of pulses has been devastating. Pulses are a cheap source of protein, a vital part of the Indian diet, whether consumed with rice or rotis, more so among vegetarians. The central government has woken up to the situation, albeit, late. Hoarding is being cracked down upon, imports have been upped, and there is talk of planning for buffer stocks to prevent such events in the future. It is now being reported that prices will drop post Deepavali, leaving many with the prospect of facing a rather dim festival of lights.

Meanwhile, in an affront to the struggling millions trying to make ends meet, the NDA-led government allowed the issue to be politicized, once again blaming states (especially ones with ongoing elections) for failing to keep inflation in check. By failing to take responsibility, a government that promised to be different, proved to be like any other. It has proved to be like other governments, also in what, so far at least, appear to be knee-jerk reactions to the current crisis. Cracking down on hoarders and increasing imports may provide some short-term relief. However, like others before it, the government has failed to look at long-term, sustainable solutions. Experts have been crying themselves hoarse over the need to incentivize farmers to grow pulses, to provide farmers who do so with the securities that rice, sugarcane and wheat farmers rely on. Irrigation solutions need to be sought and devised for farmers in drought-prone and drought-hit states. If Israel can bloom, despite being a dessert, surely India can show some foresight in dealing with the vagaries of the weather and its impact on agriculture. It is unbecoming of the government to respond to this crisis as if had been blindsided. In doing so, it has hurt itself, its credibility and left millions of hungry in the lurch.

  2. Government was unable to perceive the repercussions of the crisis.
  3. Government blindly trusted the weather conditions of India.
