B. The mobile phone service providers will increase the local call charges. 
C. The telephone bills of STD callers will be comparatively lower than before.

When the government issues an order the service providers either make a arrangements to implement it or arise objections, if any, with the government. There can also be changed at the operational level.
Choice (a) does not make any difference in the revenue for the company, moreover the customers base may decrease. Hence, neither (a) nor (e) is a possible effect.
Choice (b) may reduce the customer base or it mat also violate the norms. Hence, (b) is not a possible effect.
Choice (c) is a possible consequence because when calls any where in the country is made a local call, direct dialing without STD becomes possible. Hence, (c) is a possible effect.
By considering calls through out the country as local calls does not have any effect on the choice of the service providers. Hence, (d) is not a possible effect.

4. Statement:
Salary cannot be the only criteria for deciding a person's potential.
I. Persons with equal potential are not necessarily paid equally.
II. Salary of a person is not linked only with the potential.

A. If only assumption I is implicit 
B. If only assumption II is implicit 
C. If either I or II is implicit 
D. If neither I nor II is implicit

Answer: Option A

I is implicit. If it were not so, equal potential would have implied equal salary and vice versa. This one to one correspondence could have made salary the only criteria to judge potential.
If II were implicit, if would mean salary is linked with factors other than potential. That is, potential can't be the only criteria to decide salary. But this is on a track different from wheat the statement goes on.

5. By successfully replicating the results obtained a couple of months ago, particle physicists have once again proved that neutrinos travel faster than light. If the results announced two months ago shocked and stunned scientists all over the world, a sense of disbelief has set in after the team of scientists reconfirmed the results. The experiment would be conducted some more times to make sure of the correctness of the result.

A. Nothing can travel faster than light.
B. Albert Einstein's 1905 special theory of relativity which states that nothing can travel faster than light, may be rechecked.
C. Result obtained in just one experiment is not a conclusive to overthrow a theory believed by many.
D. There was an error in the result obtained in the first experiment.
E. The discovery of the speed of neutrinos is an accidental discovery.
Which of the statements A, B, C, D and E mentioned above represents an inference that can be drawn from the above statement?

A. A 
B. B 
C. C 
D. D

Answer: Option C

The reason for the shock and disbelief among the scientists is their belief that nothing can travel faster than light. Hence, (A) is an assumption.
Since it is proved twice that there are particles which travel faster than light, the scientists may check the correctness of the long held Einstein's theory that nothing can travel faster than light. Hence, (B) is a possible effect.
It is said that the test would be conducted some more times to confirm the result. From this it can be inderstood that result from one experiment cannot be taken as conclusive evidence. Hence, (C) is an inference.
There is no information weather the first experiment is conducted properly or not. Hence, it can neither be concluded nor is an assumption that there was an error in the first experiment. Hence, (D) is out of context.
It is not clear whether the experiment is done with the intention of finding the speed of neutrinos or it is an accidental discovery. Hence, (E) is out of context.
Statement (C) is an inference.

B. The documents should be printed in very small font and on both sides of the paper. 
C. The MPs should be provided with laptops and only soft copies of the documents should be provided to them. 
D. All documents should be printed in big font and displayed on the notice boards of the Parliament so that all MPs can refer to them.

Answer: Option C

The problem to be solved is to reduce the amount spent on printing documents.
Choice (1) is not practically implementable. As the MPs may be at different places or the document may get mutilated when many people handle it.
Choice (2) is not implementable as it may not be possible to read the document.
Choice (3) is a feasible course of action. Event some cost is involved in providing laptops to all the MPs, this is a one time expenditure. With this the amount spent on printing documents can be reduced to a great extent.
Choice (4) has other problems like the MPs may not be able to remember the content of the document.
Hence (3) is a feasible course of action.
