Passage 1 (Question 29-33)

The world’s biggest single flower comes from a plant that spends most of its life unseen. This is because the plant called Rafflesia is a parasite. It lives the jungles of Malaysia inside the roots of tropical vines and is visible only when it blooms once a year.In South-East Asia’s vanishing rain forest, Rafflesia flowers are a rare sight. Each one opens for just a week once a year. The first sign of Rafflesia flowers comes in the form of a fleshy cabbage-like bud which slowly erupts from the ground. This gradually opens to form an immense reddish brown bowl ringed by rubbery white and purple petals. The flower can be up to 1 m across and it weighs 7 kg. It has a powerful odour of rotting flesh which attracts flies in their thousands.
Once pollinated, the Rafflesia flower forms a large squashy fruit filled with seeds. This must await the heavy tread of large animal such as Rhinoceros or Elephant. When the fruit is trodden on, it bursts and the seeds stick in the animal’s feet. The animals move through the jungle and the Rafflesia seeds get pushed into the soil. In this way, they stand a good chance of being planted near the roots of another host vine so that the process of parasitic life can begin again.

Passage 2 (Questions 34-38)

Brain drain continues to be cause of concern to India with thousands of students going abroad every year for education. Most of these students, after finishing their education, get recruited and more often settle abroad because of better job opportunities. Corruption in India is also cited as another cause for brain drain as getting a well paid job today depends largely on influence rather than personal merit. Rather than fight the system, many prefer to escape abroad with their peace of mind intact in search of better jobs and better lifestyles for their families.
Former Indian president A.P.J.Abdul Kalam had said that reverse brain drain will have to begin if India is to become a developed nation in the future. As the percentage of students returning to India is not very high, efforts will have to be made to reduce students going out in the first place. Though every Indian is proud of the fact that he is an Indian, he should also be proud of being in India. For this we will have to revamp our education system by including more higher education institutions in the country so that students do not have to look for alternatives elesewhere. The migration of students might have helped “Brand India” becoming more powerful but the image of India has to be changed in the future to reduce brain drain. Corruption has to be reduced, preferably abolished and jobs should be given to deserving candidates along with respectable pay packages. We should not just be a country which produces great talent but also one that recognizes, appreciates and rewards talent.

  (3) we reverse progressive education trends
  (4) we reverse brain drain
CORRECT ANSWER
