  • Admin
    Reply

    If the Question was : Which Bt Food Crop is available in India?
    Answer would be : No One as BtBrinjal is India's first Genetically modified food crop and it is now not being introduced, as an indefinite moratorium has been put in place.

    Q. 1: I would be happy if somebody can remember and quote exactly what was the question regarding balance of payments. Because this question was complicated and can't be answered if we don't get exactly what they asked. I don't know weather the problem was related to balance of trade between India & China or balance of payments of India or china or the question asked India's payment imbalances with regard to China.

    Q2. Government of India has allocated 6 per cent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) to the education sector in the 11th Five-Year plan (2007-2012).

    Q3. Kiwi is also a Fruit, probably u know. I feel most of students know that Kiwi is a fruit.

    "54. A question regarding Climate change terminilogy : Correct option was Basel norms"

    Basel Norms has to do with "Risk Management of Banks". Hence, it is a Banking terminology and not a Climate Change terminology.
