Directions (Qs. No. 1-8): Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow by choosing the correct/most appropriate options: 

1. Chennai is on alert against quack doctors, whom official say vex the city every year during its fever season. The news comes as a reminder of the epidemic of quackery in India: unqualified, unlicensed practitioners account for a staggering proportion of the country’s healthcare workforce. 2. In the past decade, an estimated 1,500 quack doctors have been booked in the Tamil Nadu state capital but official say that despite making arrests, it is difficult to effectively crack down on the phenomenon. The main reason is lax penalties: “They get bail or pay fine and restart practice”, said Dr. K. Kolandaisamy, director of public health in the city. “The only way to stop this is to book quacks for attempt to murder or murder charges”, adds Dr. T.N. Ravi Shankar, former head of the Tamil Nadu chapter of the Indian Medical Association (IMA). 3. Quackery is not a problem limited to Chennai, or to Tamil Nadu where 50,000 quack doctors operate according to the IMA. It is endemic throughout India. 

4. At the national level, 25 per cent of the healthcare workforce in India lacks the qualifications required: a network of quacks, “traditional birth attendants, faith healers, snakebite curers and bonesetters”. Between one and 2.5 million people practise numerous other complications. One million Indians lose their lives to subpar healthcare every year, driven in part by a sizeable number of workers without training or qualifications. 

Often, these quack doctors are the only immediately available help for a significant proportion of India’s population such as those in areas underserved by medical professionals. With a significant shortage of doctors, it is clear that the quackery epidemic did not originate in a vacuum- and as officials in Chennai point out, they can win over the trust of their patients.

Directions (Qs. No. 9-15): Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow by choosing the correct/ most appropriate options: 

1. My love of travelling and living in the exhilaration of the moment backfired, and I had to backtrack from the magnificent banks of the Ganges in the holy city of Hardwar, back down to Delhi to try and find a new route out of India. 

2. Arriving into Delhi in the afternoon, I scrambled around to find a bite to eat before sundown. I found 

a small restaurant near my hostel, but after a few bites of putrid, rotten flavoured chicken I had a bad feeling and left, meal unfinished, to try get an early night. 

3. But it was already too late. All it took was a few bites. The next morning I was up early and headed to the bus stop before sunrise, thankful to have a last- minute ticket on a long distance bus to Kathmandu. The dirty, rickety old bus left from a dusty underpass– not a bus stop or station in site. It was full of upright seats with nowhere to recline and rest for the massive 26-hour journey ahead. 

4. I was eight hours into a long windy journey through lush jungle when the food poisoning took hold. Without warning, I began violently vomiting- mostly into a bag I had, but also all over myself and my seat. 

5. Despite this being one of my more embarrassing travel stories, it wasn’t long before most of the other passengers were mad at me because the air conditioning wouldn’t work with the windows up. 6.

ever eaten. 

There were only two other foreigners on the bus; women who offered me sips of water and medicine. I was sick, sticky and drifting in and out of feverish dreams for the next 18 hours until I was able to get to a hospital in Nepal.
