21. Educational psychologists have researched the instructional applicability of Jean Piaget's
theory of development, according to which children mature through four stages of cognitive
capability. Piaget hypothesized that children are not capable of abstract logical thought until
they are older than about 11 years and therefore younger children need to be taught using
concrete objects and examples. Researchers have found that transitions, such as from
concrete to abstract logical thought, do not occur at the same time in all domains. A child
may be able to think abstractly about mathematics, but remain limited to concrete thought
when reasoning about human relationships. Perhaps Piaget's most enduring contribution is
his insight that people actively construct their understanding through a self-regulatory
process. Which of the following statements weakens the conclusion drawn in the passage?
(a) Few children below the age of 11 years have passed the IIT entrance test with exceptional
mathematical and reasoning skills.
(b) The study was conducted on children from different parts of the world for a prolonged
period of time.

23. "We are at a moment where computers and computer technology now have approached
humans." That was the grand claim made by John Kelly, head of research at IBM, an
American technology giant, a few weeks ago on the eve of a major test of his firm's
computing prowess. Watson, the firm's latest super-duper computer, was ready to take on
the world's best contestants at "Jeopardy!, an American television quiz show known for its
use of clever puns and spoonerisms. In the event, Watson handily won the contest. That is
impressive, as it demonstrates that machines can learn "natural language", a tricky task
indeed. But what of Mr. Kelly's far grander claim, that artificial intelligence is approaching the
human kind? An influential camp of thinkers led by Ray Kurzweil, a futurist and inventor
(awarded a TQ Innovation prize by this newspaper in 2009 for his work in artificial
intelligence) goes further. On this view, machines will improve until they inevitably surpass
humans in intelligencea point in time in the near future that Mr. Kurzweil calls the
Singularity.

(b) The illumination in the RTC buses is so bad that conductors can hardly distinguish the
original season ticket from its duplicate.

scrupulous adherence to duty.

advertisers. As a result, almost everyone ever gets tens of annoying calls and SMS a day. So,

concerned about excelling in their individual capacity.

50. The Titanic, a passenger ship, sank as a result of a hole in its hull, possibly caused by
sabotage. Normally, when a holed ship sinks as rapidly as the Titanic did, water does not
enter the ship quickly enough for the ship to be fully flooded when it reaches the ocean
floor. Full flooding can be achieved, however, by sabotage. Any ship that sinks deep into the
ocean when not fully flooded will implode. Deep sea photographs, taken of the sunken
Titanic where it rests on the ocean floor, reveal that the Titanic did not implode.
Which one of the following must be true based on the information above?
(a) The Titanic was so constructed as to reduce the risk of sinking by impact.
(b) If the Titanic became fully flooded, it did so only after it reached the ocean floor.
(c) If the Titanic was not sunk by sabotage, water flooded into it unusually fast.
(d) If the Titanic has sunk more slowly, it would have imploded.
