(Multiple Choice Questions)
(Q.1-3) Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow, choosing the correct option:
Children are the future of any nation. They should be given proper education and food so that they would become an asset to their country. But it is unfortunate that children are being used as child labourers. If the government had really wanted, child labour in hazardous industries could have been eliminated a long time ago; and every Indian child would have been in school by 2003. The government has not only failed to eliminate child labour completely but also failed to provide compulsory primary education for all, despite the rhetoric. Between 60 and 100 million children are still at work instead of going to school and around 10 million are working in hazardous industries.
We have many laws that ban the child labour in hazardous industries. According to the Child Labour Prohibition and Regulation Act, 1986, the employment of children (below the age of 14) in hazardous occupations has been banned strictly. But each state has different rules regarding the minimum age of employment; this makes implementation of these laws difficult.
Also, there is no ban on child labour in non-hazardous occupations. The Act applies to the organised or factory sector and not to the unorganised or informal sector where most children find employment as cleaners, servants, porters, waiters, among other forms of unskilled work. Thus, child labour still persists because of the laxity in the implementation of the existing laws.
There are industries which have a ‘special’ demand for child labour because of their nimble fingers, high level of concentration and capacity to work hard at abysmally low wages. The carpet industry in Kashmir employs children to make hand-knitted carpets; there are 80,000 child workers alone in Jammu and Kashmir. Because of the political unrest, the schools have been shut down and the Kashmiri children are forced to work for the carpet manufacturers to support their families.

- Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below:
Pollution happens when unwanted gases and other materials escape into the environment. It causes waste, financial losses and damage to human, animal and plant health. Huge growth in industry and in the world’s population in the last 100 years have led to more and more industrial process and pollution. Deliberate dumping and accidents such as oil spillages have seriously affected the earth’s air, land and water.
Some gases and particles in the air may be dangerous to health if breathed in. Most air pollution comes from burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and gases) and solid waste or from gases released into the air by different processes. One of the worst is carbon monoxide from vehicle exhausts. It is poisonous to humans because it prevents the absorption of oxygen. Another is nitrogen oxide, which reacts with sunlight to produce dense smog. Tobacco smoke also damages health-even breathing in other people’s smoke is harmful.
Increasing quantities of heavy metals such as mercury and lead, chemicals, sewage and oil spills are polluting lakes, rivers and oceans. Water in some places is
unsafe to drink or even bathe in, as a result, and animals are harmed and killed.
