READING

Q. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.

Nothing sums up the sour mood of post-Brexit politics like that nasty little mantra, which erupted online immediately after the 2016 referendum and has ………………………(A) ever since. (B) When deciding(1) won their surprise victory they had a chance to respond bruised(2), inviting a magnanimously(3) 48% into the process of leavers(4) how to manage the departure and addressing their fears. But too many simply sneered at remainers instead, and so the divide hardened.

Our toxic political culture is the price we have paid ever since for failing to secure losers’ consent.(C) There has been much talk lately of bringing /the country back together, yet revisiting Brexit /in a general election that was simultaneous /about so many other starkly divisive issues has achieved the opposite./ Losing always hurts, but with the two main parties poles apart on almost everything that matters and with so much at stake, this result may be harder than usual for the losing side to accept. Even so, it might not be too late to start trying to put the broken pieces back together.True, I’m writing this in the calm before the storm: that eerily still moment on polling day just after voting but before knowing the result, when anything is still possible even if most things seem unlikely. Soon, doors now ajar will be ………………………(D) shut.

But whoever emerges victorious, whether instantly with a majority or slowly and only after prolonged horse-trading, should do so with a hefty dose of humility. It’s not just the losers they need to convince this time. (E) There will have been plenty(a) of people thrilled(b) on Thursday by the chance to vote for the politician of their dreams, but many others will have voted tactically, or while bury(c) serious qualms(d). More than any I remember, this was an election when voters were urged to vote against rather than for something. (F) Forget your nagging worries about Boris Johnson’s mendacity or your unease about antisemitism in the Labour party; ____________________________

(G) Green, Lib Dem and other minority party voters have been guilt tripped(1) into worse(2) their natural preference(3) for fear of something abandoning(4). Whoever governs next will do so partly thanks to borrowed votes, and should be sobered by that knowledge. New prime ministers invariably reach for unifying words on the steps of Downing Street – even Margaret Thatcher quoted the prayer of St Francis of Assisi in 1979 – but few live up to them. This time, we need actions as well as words. Any attempt at national reconciliation must start with all those lately made to feel unwelcome in their own country.(H) Many Jews have spoken of potentially fleeing Britain if Jeremy Corbyn won,/ but many ethnic minority voters have said they’d feel equally unsafe under Johnson; /both may find it hard to forget other Britons’ apparent willingness to throw them /under the bus in an election, whatever the result.

(I) The hurt caused to EU nationals living in Britain when the Tory leader accused them of treating it like their “own country” ____________________________. Whoever wins has a moral responsibility to repair the damage, committing to act promptly on any findings from the pending Equality and Human Rights Commission inquiry into Labourantisemitism and ensuring the much-promised inquiry into Islamophobia within the Conservative party actually happens; new MPs should resolve to represent EU nationals living in their constituencies as vigorously as if the latter had a vote.

The second priority is ensuring that we never have an election campaign this dishonest again. Johnson has pushed against accepted political norms – the idea that political  advertising stays roughly within the boundaries of truth, say, or that prospective leaders submit to searching interviews – and found them alarmingly flimsy. And if one party isn’t playing by the rules, the others soon realise that doing so puts them at a competitive disadvantage.

It will be for the new parliament to stop the rot. (J)The lesson of the Westminster expenses(1) scandal was that rebounded(2) cheating by some members of parliament egregious(3) on all of them, because after a while voters just stop distinguishing(4) between individuals and assume that all of them are probably at it. So it is with lying: before long, nobody’s words are believed.

News organisations should reconsider giving aspirant prime ministers free publicity for silly campaign stunts if they won’t also do tough interviews. And while anonymous sources still serve important purposes in journalism, anyone routinely abusing the privilege in order to lie without accountability cannot expect to remain anonymous.

Q. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below. Few words have been highlighted and a blank in a sentence has been given to help you while you answer.

In the wake of the oxygen supply crisis in Covid-19 management in India, the Supreme Court has set up a 12-member National Task Force (NTF) to guide, inter alia, the central government allocation of medical oxygen to the states. The task force will work with senior officials of NITI Aayog, the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Department of Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade as well as the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, the Indian Council of Medical Research and the Directorate General of Health Services. The Supreme Court has also mandated that the task force may constitute more sub-groups on specialized areas or regions to assist in its work and also to consider, if appropriate, seeking the assistance of experts both within and outside government in areas such as critical care, infectious disease modeling, clinical virology and immunology, and epidemiology/ public health. The rationale for setting up the task force has been to facilitate a public health response to the pandemic based upon scientific and specialized domain knowledge.

It is hoped that the establishment of the NTF will help the decision-makers with inputs that can enable them to go beyond ad hoc solutions to the unprecedented challenge. In the 12-point terms of reference (ToR) of the NTF, the first five points focus on oxygen supply, including, deciding on a methodology for the scientific allocation of oxygen to states and facilitating audits (of oxygen supply, distribution and utilization) by sub-groups within each state and UTs. The task force will also review and suggest measures necessary for ensuring the availability of essential drugs and medicines.

The remaining six ToR of the NTF are aimed at the broader pandemic preparedness and response, which include planning and adopting remedial measures to ensure preparedness for present and future emergencies; to facilitate the use of technology; to suggest augmenting the availability of trained doctors, nurses and paramedical staff; to promote evidence-based research and enhance effective response to the pandemic; facilitate sharing of best practices across the nation to promote knowledge about management of the pandemic and to make recommendations in regard to other issues of pressing national concerns. The tenure of the task force shall be six months initially.

The Supreme Court’s order to set up the task force is highly significant, considering that India is struggling to mount an effective response to the second wave of the pandemic. It ensures the participation of independent subject experts in policy decisions, which have often been criticized as being overly led by a techno-bureaucratic process.

It is very significant that the Court has considered the supply of medical oxygen in the broader context of the shortage of medicines at health facilities and that the improved supply and provision of essential drugs and medicines has been included as one of the ToRs.

The shortage of medical oxygen in the Covid-19 response reflects insufficient planning, delayed procurement, and weakness of supply chain management — issues which plague medicine supply in the public healthcare sector in India. The only differences are i) that the shortage of medical oxygen is more acute and urgent and ii), while people can buy medicines from the private sector, medical oxygen is short across the board.

The root cause of this situation is the insufficient capacity of state health departments in planning, procurement and supply of medicines, an issue which is widely known. This is further aggravated by insufficient government funding. The importance of such a mechanism cannot be underestimated. For instance, Tamil Nadu had set up the medical supply corporation in 1994 and has better supply management than most other Indian states. In recent years, a number of states have set up medical procurement and supply corporations, but their functioning remains suboptimal in the absence of sufficient and trained human resources.

As a result, though most Indian states have started free medicine schemes, people continue to spend on medicines from their own pockets. The coexistence of free medicine schemes and high out-of-pocket expenditure (which accounts for nearly 30-40 percent of healthcare costs paid by the people from their pocket) on medicines is a comment on the performance of these schemes. The presence of many private chemist shops just outside every government hospital across India, speaks volumes, too. Therefore, looking at the shortage of medical oxygen through a broader lens is a great start.

The work of the NTF will not be without challenges. They have a short time to look at far broader issues. The members of NTF have the needed qualification and expertise to advise on clinical matters and oxygen supply; however, they may need to proactively co-opt members with expertise in medical procurement and supply; pharmacology, free medicines and diagnostics; and public health and emergency health response. Also, considering that the availability of diagnostics has similar challenges as medicines, the NTF may consider including that as well in the scope of its work.However, the NTF may face a bigger challenge in delivering on its ToRs on the broader pandemic response.

All 10 of the 12 independent members of the NTF (the other two are government officials, ex-officio) are leading clinicians, critical care specialists and virologists. They may be the best in their area of work; but a long-term and effective pandemic response needs broader expertise than medical care. The NTF will have the responsibility to ___________ that India should not end up with a medicalized response to a public health challenge. The decisions and recommendations of this NTF and how they co-opt members with the right expertise will determine whether India ends up becoming a medicalized care system (which would focus on treating sickness) or a healthcare system which can keep people healthy and respond to future epidemics and pandemics.

Based on your understanding of the passage, answer any six out of the eight questions by choosing the correct option.

Q11. According to the given passage, the root cause of the shortage of medical oxygen in the Covid-19 is

  1. Insufficient Planning
  2. Transportation
  3.  Weak supply chain management
  4. Lack of oxygen plants
  5. Delayed procurement
  1. Both (ii) and (iv)
  2. (i), (iii) and (iv)
  3. (ii), (iv) and (v)
  4. (i), (iii) and (v)

Answer: D

In the fourth paragraph, it is clearly stated that the root cause of the shortage of medical oxygen in the Covid-19 is the insufficient capacity of state health departments in planning, procurement and supply of medicines.

Hence option D is the correct answer.

Q12. Which statement is not true according to the 12-point terms of reference (ToR) of the National Task Force?

  1. It will focus on oxygen supply, including, deciding on a methodology for the scientific allocation of oxygen to states and facilitating audits by sub-groups within each state and UTs.
  2. The National Task Force will help the decision-makers with inputs that can enable them to go beyond ad hoc solutions to the unprecedented challenge.
  3. The task force will review and suggest measures necessary for ensuring the availability of essential drugs and medicines.
  4. The Terms of Reference of the National Task Force are aimed at the broader pandemic preparedness and response, which include planning and adopting remedial measures to ensure preparedness for present and future emergencies.

Answer: B

In the second paragraph, the 12-point terms of reference (ToR) of the National Task Force are given. From all the above options option B is false according to the terms of reference of the National Task Force.

Hence option B is the correct answer.

Q13. Which of the following statements is FALSE as given in the passage?

  1. In the wake of the oxygen supply crisis in Covid-19 management in India, the Supreme Court has set up a 12-member National Task Force (NTF) to guide, inter alia, the central government allocation of medical oxygen to the states.
  2. The members of the National Task Force have the needed qualification and expertise to advise on clinical matters and oxygen supply.
  3. The National Task Force will work with senior officials of NITI Aayog, the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Department of Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade as well as the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences, the Indian Council of Medical Research and the Directorate General of Health Services.
  4. The rationale for setting up the task force has been to facilitate a public health response to the pandemic based upon economic and specialized domain knowledge.

Answer: D

From all the given options, option D is false according to the passage.

The First paragraph clearly states that the rationale for setting up the task force has been to facilitate a public health response to the pandemic based upon scientific and specialized domain knowledge not upon economic and specialized domain knowledge as given in the option.

Q14. Which of the following statements is TRUE as given in the passage?

  1. Tamil Nadu had set up the medical supply corporation in 1994 and has better supply management than most other Indian states.
  2. The Supreme Court’s order to set up the task force is highly significant, considering that India is struggling to mount an effective response to the second wave of the pandemic.
  3. The work of the financial task force will not be without challenges. They have a short time to look at far broader issues.
  4. Both (a) and (b)

Answer: D

From the given options option C is false. In the given passage we are talking about the National task force not the financial task force. That’s why option C is incorrect and from all the given options both (a) and (b) are correct.

Q15. Find the synonym to Aggravate as used in the passage.

Class 10th English Previous Year Question Paper – 2019

Section A-READING

Q No.1 

A passage has been given below. There is an incomplete line in the passage as well. Read the same carefully and answer the questions that follow:

Paragraph I Women represent half the world’s population ~ and half of its economic potential. A society cannot have sustained economic prosperity and wellbeing until the central role of women is recognized and their economic health is used as a measure to shape policy. Women hold the key to ending poverty, when empowered with the right resources and tools. A great opportunity is wasted when women are isolated from the economy. It is now widely surmised that until they are financially literate and empowered around money, we’ll never truly have equality. Women play key roles in their homes, communities, and businesses. Women’s participation in the financial system can have significant benefits in terms of economic growth, greater equality and societal well-being. When accessible finance reaches women, the benefits are particularly sustainable.

The objective of improving financial health for women is increasingly an area of interest for influential foundations and NGOs ~ who recognize that better financial health and savings behaviour amongst women can positively impact educational, health and nutrition outcomes for children in low income families. Financial inclusion of women enhances their self-confidence and places the power of decision-making in their hands, resulting in large development payoffs. Women channel money into solving more fundamental issues. The persistent gender gap in financial inclusion reveals the need for action, especially given growing evidence of such inclusion’s ability to reduce the exposure to income shocks and promote more sustainable and equitable development.

While efforts to advance women’s inclusion have taken many forms, technological innovations ~ including digitized social payments from governments, mobile money, and innovations in the design and delivery of financial products and services ~ appear to hold particular promise. When more people have access to affordable and good quality financial services, they have more opportunities to thrive. This is especially true for women, who are often underserved by traditional financial institutions. Every client is unique and women look for privacy and flexibility when choosing financial products and services. Access and usage of financial services are levers for increasing women’s participation in the economy.

Paragraph II We need to study the myriad social and behavioural impediments impacting women and use this knowledge to design customized financial product offerings. In failing to develop client experiences rooted in men and women’s fundamentally-different perspectives on finance, banks are missing a very significant business opportunity. Women often face several barriers which limit their financial inclusion, other than the universal constraints that low-income communities face: Limited access to mobile phones, lower literacy levels, less confidence in using technology and restrictions on travel or social interaction.

We need to address them through behavioural and reformist approaches, instead of the usual hardware- based approach. It’s not that the barriers are greater for rural ones. Successfully building women’s financial capability must account for the systemic barriers women face. Women are not a single market segment; a deeper understanding of the lives of women – for example, their livelihoods and the social norms that shape their lives ~ will help inform providers of their financial service needs and how the sector can better serve them.

Instead of disguising male-focused products as gender- neutral, we need specific products tailored to their unique needs. _______________________. Offering women a pink checkbook, for example, does not substantively address their financial needs or provide real value. Most women-targeting is focused not on designing gender smart solutions but instead on creating products that superficially target women. Women make for a low-revenue segment but prove to be loyal and profitable clients when served with appropriately-designed products. Financial service providers need to ensure that their charges are not prohibitive and the tools are so designed that they make women’s engagement with financial service providers friendly, safe, affordable and convenient.

Q1) Women have been relegated to the task of maintaining a strict budget is the statement true about women according to the passage?

Answer: 

Refer to paragraph first- “When accessible finance reaches women, the benefits are particularly sustainable. The objective of improving financial health for women is increasingly an area of interest for influential foundations and NGOs ~ who recognize that better financial health and savings behaviour amongst women can positively impact educational, health and nutrition outcomes for children in low income families.” 

Q2) Why is there a need to study the myriad social and behavioural obstructions that impact women?

Answer: 

When more people have access to affordable and good quality financial services, they have more opportunities to thrive. This is especially true for women, who are often perceived as underserved by traditional financial institutions. Every client is unique and women look for privacy and flexibility when choosing financial products and services. Access and usage of financial services are levers for increasing women’s participation in the economy. We need to study the myriad social and behavioural impediments impacting women and use this knowledge to design customized financial product offerings.

Q3) Why women should have a central role to sustained economic prosperity?

Answer: A society cannot have sustained economic prosperity and wellbeing until the central role of women is recognized and their economic health is used as a measure to shape policy. Women hold the key to ending poverty, when empowered with the right resources and tools. A great opportunity is wasted when women are isolated from the economy.

Q4) What are the barriers faced by women which limit their financial inclusion according to the author?

Answer: Refer to the second paragraph- “Women often face several barriers which limit their financial inclusion, other than the universal constraints that low-income communities face: Limited access to mobile phones, lower literacy levels, less confidence in using technology and restrictions on travel or social interaction. We need to address them through behavioural and reformist approaches, instead of the usual hardware- based approach. It’s not that the barriers are necessarily different for rural and urban women”.

Q5) Complete the following:

Instead of disguising male-focused products as gender- neutral, we need specific products tailored to their unique needs _______________________.

Answer: 

Instead of disguising male-focused products as gender- neutral, we need specific products tailored to their unique needs. Incorporating women’s perspective and experience into the design of new and existing products would increase the likelihood of resonance with the women’s market. Offering women a pink checkbook, for example, does not substantively address their financial needs or provide real value. Most women-targeting is focused not on designing gender smart solutions but instead on creating products that superficially target women.

Q6) Choose the word which is most near to the meaning as the word “ stammer ” in the passage?

Answer:-Impediments is the word most near to meaning as the word stammer.

Q2) Read the following passage and answer the following questions. Some words are highlighted to help you answer some of the questions.

At a Summit Nature & Conservation Photography Workshop a few years ago, while reviewing portfolios of workshop participants, one young photographer asked me for advice in getting started as a conservation photographer. I replied that there were probably better people to ask—among the faculty at that particular workshop are some of the top pros who dedicate their careers to conservation work-but I observed that one qualification that tends to be common among the leading photographers is a background in, or at least a strong connection to, scientific research.

When you examine the biographies of many Outdoor Photographer contributors or fellows of the International League of Conservation Photographers, natural science education and research are consistently part of the picture. Sebastian Kennerknecht received his Bachelor of Science in ecology and evolution from the University of California at Santa Cruz igo Slugs!), and he was while working toward his degree there that he started down the path of conservation photography.

In “Chasing Wildcats,” he recounts ___________________________________ (2) and how that interaction inspired him to devote his career to documenting the world’s most elusive cat species. Kennerknecht notes that the smaller species tend to be overlooked in favour of larger cats and, as a result, receive just 1 percent of the funding for conservation efforts on behalf of wildcats worldwide.

He hopes to change that through his photography by giving us a window into a largely unseen world. The scientific nature and documentary realism of photography is what makes it such a powerful medium. Photography conveys us to faraway destinations and brings us into intimate encounters with wildlife and wild places that we might not otherwise be able to witness. Artful photographic composition is transporting, and the way we choose to frame a scene prescribes how the viewer will experience it.

That’s important to keep in mind, whether you’re photographing for a conservation cause or simply for the enjoyment of sharing a personal connection to nature. Composition is especially important in landscape photography for providing the viewer an entry point and path through the scene. In “The Art of Wildflower Photography,” Kevin McNeal shares a variety of tips for capturing the stunning, colourful displays of spring, and one commonality you’ll see in his images is a thoughtful use of foreground, middle ground and background.

The layers in McNeal’s photographs invite your eye to move throughout the frame and give you a sense of place and space, qualities to strive for in every landscape composition. Also in this issue, Gary Hart touches on the science behind sunset (and sun-rise) colour. Photogenic sunsets aren’t simply a matter of luck. Specific atmospheric conditions determine whether the show will be a boom or a bust. “Nature photography isn’t rocket science,” Hart admits, “but a basic understanding of nature’s processes can make the difference between success and failure.” In his article on the topic, Hart provides a basic overview of the science behind sunset colour and insights for anticipating when to set up the tripod to capture a dramatic display, I hope this issue inspires you to head out including me into the field and experience spring’s renewal, whether it’s wildlife, wildflowers or simply a serene sunset that draws your lens.

Q1)What is the probable profession of the author which can be inferred after reading the passage?

Answer: 

To answer this question the reading of the entire passage is a must, from the last lines of the ultimate para of the passage ‘I hope this issue inspires you to head out including me into the field and experience spring’s renewal, whether it’s wildlife, wildflowers or simply a serene sunset that draws your lens’. The pronoun ‘I’ indicates author and by the word ‘this issue’ he meant this article, and he talks about heading out including him, this shows that he is not a photographer , since the question is ‘probable profession’ the above explanation is enough to deduce that he could be the author of this article.

Q2) What can be fill in the blank (2) as given in the passage, to make the sentence grammatically and contextually correct?

Answer:

The keyword is ‘a particular bobcat’ because it is talking about a particular bobcat which has influenced him to choose the profession of capturing rarely seen bobcat species.

Q3) What in the passage mentions the difference between ‘conservation cause photography’ and ‘personal connection to nature photography’?

Answer: 

From the second Para of the passage, and the conservation cause photography is mentioned in detail but not the personal connection to nature photography.

Q4) Which one of the following is wrongly matched?

  1. a)Gary hart- nature photographer
  2. b)Kevin- wildflower photographer
  3. c)Sebastian- conservation photographer

Answer: 

All are correct, the persons and professions of each person are correctly mentioned in the options as per the passage.

Q5) Which of the following words is most similar in meaning as OVERLOOKED, as highlighted in the given passage?

  1. Considered
  2. Overawe
  3. Neglected
  4. Dither
  5. None of the above.

Answer: C

Option c, overlooked (neglected) is the correct answer, overawe (to impress) dither (to impress)

Sentence Improvement 4 Q 

Q6) In the following questions, some part of the sentence is underlined. Which of the options given below the sentence should replace the part highlighted to make the sentence grammatically correct? If the sentence is correct as it is given then choose option (e) ‘No Correction required’ as the answer.

Insurance scheme for frontline health workers have been extended for another six months, the Government said on Friday after Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired a meeting to review the functioning of different empowered groups through video conference.

  1. Have been extended for another six months
  2. Has been extended for another six months
  3. Have extended for another six months
  4. Has extended for another six months
  5. No correction required

Answer: B

The subject ‘insurance scheme’ is singular so singular verb has to be used so it cannot be no correction required, option a is eliminated because it should be six months, also the sentence has to be in passive voice, so active voice sentences mentioned in c and d can be eliminated.

ii) Write a short note on global warming?

Answer:

Rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere create global warming, which is the outcome of human activities that have been wreaking havoc on our biosphere for centuries. Worldwide warming is an issue that cannot be ignored, and action must be taken on a global basis to solve it. The average temperature has been slowly rising by 1.5 degrees Celsius during the last five years. Further tree cutting should be restricted, and afforestation should be promoted as the most effective way to avert future environmental damage. Start by planting trees near your home and workplace, attending events, and educating people about the importance of tree planting. While it is impossible to undo the harm, it is possible to avoid further damage.

  • How kisa gautam did realize that the death is universal and inevitable?

 

Answer:-Kisa Gautami had come to Gautam Buddha to express her grief at the death of her son. Buddha then asked her to go collect a handful of mustard seeds. She was overjoyed because she believed she would be able to obtain mustard seeds from whatever house she knocked on.

Buddha repeated his request and added a condition: a handful of mustard seeds from a home where no one has lost a child, husband, father, or friend.

When her attempts failed, she realised that death was universal and unavoidable. She recognised that suffering is an unavoidable part of life, and that you must learn to cope with the resulting anguish and agony. This incident taught her a vital lesson: death strikes every family.

She learned from Buddha that no amount of pleading or sobbing will bring the dead back to life. He says that intelligent persons do not weep because they comprehend the universal nature of death and that, like a fruit off a tree, mortals’ lives will come to an end.

Answer:-Kisa Gautami had visited Gautam Buddha to convey her sorrow at her son’s death. After that, Buddha instructed her to go gather a handful of mustard seeds. She was ecstatic since she thought she’d be able to get mustard seeds from whatever house she knocked on.

Buddha repeated his request with a stipulation: a handful of mustard seeds from a household where no one has lost a child, spouse, parent, or friend.

She realised that death was universal and inexorable when her attempts failed. She understood that pain is an inescapable part of life, and that you must learn to manage with the sorrow and agony that comes with it. This tragedy taught her an important lesson: death happens to everyone.

Buddha taught her that no amount of begging or weeping can bring the dead back to life. He claims that clever people do not cry because they understand the universal nature of death and that mortals’ life will come to an end like a fruit off a tree.

Class 10th English Previous Year Question Paper – 2018

READING

  1. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.

The rules-based world order for international trade appears to be in for a rougher ride yet after the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump announced this week that it would be slapping $200-billion worth of Chinese exports with 10% tariff, ratcheting it up to 25% by the year-end. In the latest round of the ongoing trade skirmishes between the world’s two largest economies, almost 6,000 items will be hit by the new U.S. tariffs, from September 24 onward. Typical of Mr. Trump’s aggressive approach on “unfair” trade policies, the tariff announcement came with the warning, “If China takes retaliatory action against our farmers or other industries, we will immediately pursue phase three, which is tariffs on approximately $267 billion of additional imports.” Less than 24 hours after the U.S. announcement, China said it would apply retaliatory taxes to the tune of $60 billion. Given that over the summer both countries started taxing $50-billion worth of the other’s imports, if Mr. Trump makes good on his threat of additional tariffs, all Chinese imports to the U.S., nearly 4% of world trade, will come under the tax net. On both sides of the tariff war, economic pain is likely to be widely distributed.

and nations with close trade and investment links to the two countries, such as those in Europe, will find themselves in considerable economic trouble. Over the longer term, a reversal of the gl There are two questions that this escalation raises. First, what is the likely trajectory of this conflict? Economists concur that in the near term the trade war will cause a shrinkage in bilateral trade volumes. Businesses in the U.S., Chinaobalization of supply chains may take place — perhaps that is the very aim of the Trump administration. However, the U.S. could have gone about this by applying its resources through bodies such as the World Trade Organization to penalize China for overproduction dumping overseas and excessive restrictions on market access. Second, what impact will this trade war have on the future of the hyper-connected world that we live in today? China, and indeed any other nation that trades with the U.S., may seek alternative markets and trading partners if the American government persists with its retreat into economic isolationism. Yet, even if countries can avoid some of the punitive costs of this battle, global institutions such as the WTO and a myriad other multilateral rule-making bodies will wither away, losing their authority. Philosophically, this would fly in the face of the foundational economic principles regarding division of labour and comparative advantage. This would, in the much-longer term, be a loss for the world community of nations, many of whom have worked hard to establish and credentialism the post-World War order precisely in order to stave ______ the dark forces of parochialism that engendered the horrors of that period.

They need international support if the Amazon is to be at the centre of climate action rather than just another distant frontline in the war against nature.

(B) For that to happen, the world must wake up to the destruction(1) threat posed by the existential(2) of the Amazon, and show traditional(3) with solidarity(4) communities, land rights activists and environmental NGOs in Brazil. All have come under intensifying pressure since ultra-right militarist JairBolsonaro became the country’s president at the start of this year. His government has weakened forest protections and encouraged miners, farmers and land grabbers to take advantage.

The Amazon increasingly resembles a battleground. On one side is an ethnically diverse, ecologically rich mix of indigenous people, riverine communities and quilombolas, or hinterland settlements. On the other is a primarily white capitalist elite, eager to exploit the land. (C) In one form or another, /this struggle dates back five centuries /to the first European colonialists, but it has taken for/global significance as the climate consequences become clearer./ Civil rights activists describe a climate of terror. In the past three weeks, alone three indigenous leaders have been murdered along with a key witness due to testify in defence of Catholic priest and land activist Amaro Lopes, the successor of murdered nun, Dorothy Stang. Last month, police raided the Health and Happiness Project, a long-running NGO in Alter de Chão, Santarém, and arrested four volunteer firefighters. With the government on their side, land grabbers feel emboldened to invade and burn more forest.

Human rights campaigners say police are taking the side of land grabbers, and want a meeting with the governor of Parå state to seek reassurance laws will be respected, protected forests will be safeguarded and activists will not become targets. That they have to ask these questions shows how ……………………(D)the situation has become. This is of global concern. At a time of climate emergency, the Amazon is the world’s biggest terrestrial carbon sink. (E)Amid growing(a) evidence (b) of a breakdown of the world’s natural life-support systems, it is home to more species(c) than anywhere outside the oceans(d). The rainforest is a vitally important part of the water cycle, channeling rain across South America and shaping the trade winds that circulate weather systems. (F) Calls for tree planting and nature-based solutions to the climate crisis _____________________.
