In Agriculture Section of Prelim Question asked were tough ( as paper was same for Specialist and generalist )
Questions like Depth of Tiling , , Amount of N in Kg of Nitrogen 100kg . Similar question about Potassium .
these questions according to me were for Specialist you need to answer here only question like Aurobindi is variety of which crop ,Soil having highest clay %,Crops in different climate like tropics and subtropics . and above type of questions .
So here is Guide for these two sections :
Deep factual study for ESI from current and static portion .
Only Basic factual study of Agriculture
By this way you will be able to answer at least 60 questions out of 80 question of these two sections .
So you will able to attempt 150 out of 200 . which is good enough attempt to clear prelim out of 200 .
For Mains :-
In mains question will be paragraph based for ESI like this :-
Read the following passage and answer the given questions:
Data released earlier this year revealed a landmark event for the Indian economy that
went largely unnoticed: agricultural workers now comprise less than half the workforce
for the first time in the history of the Indian economy and its contribution to GDP is
less than 14 percent. However in recent years even as the non-agricultural economy
remains weak, overall growth has been propped up to the extent it has by the growth
of the overall rural economy. And while within the rural economy itself, non-farm
activities are becoming increasingly significant, close to two or three workers depend
on agriculture for an important part of their income. Lower production from earlier
years, higher cultivation costs and weaker yields bode ill for farm incomes and by
extension for the rural economy as a whole. If rural incomes are hit, there could be
bigger demand for work under the rural employment guarantee scheme. Though there
is a government proposal to restrict MGNREGA to tribal districts only, if farm incomes
remain weak this feeds into the rest of the economy and the intention of the
government to see this policy through could well be tested.
Q. 1. What do the statistics regarding the agricultural sector cited in the passage indicate?
(1) Farm incomes are likely to be hit by low global commodity prices and weak or
(2) Overall agricultural output will fall significantly this year despite sustained
(3) Factors such as a weak monsoon have resulted in an agricultural deficit
(4) The agricultural sector is very important to the economy despite its falling
contribution to India’s GDP
(5) Agriculture must employ more workforce
. Which of the following is a welcome development?
(1) Bigger demand for work under rural employment guarantee scheme
(2) Non-agricultural economy remaining weak
(3) Agriculture workforce becoming less than half of the total workforce
(4) Higher cultivation costs
(5) Restricting MGNREGA to tribal district
Q.3. Which of the following best defines MGNREGA?
(1) Guaranteeing 100 days of wage-employment to a rural household
(2) Guarantee for a minimum price for agriculture yields in rural areas
(3) Guaranteeing crop assurance and minimum price for agriculture yields in rural
(4) Guaranteeing crop assurance and minimum price for agriculture yields in tribal
(5) Guaranteed regular employment of one adult member in rural areas in a farm or
Q.4-5. Read the following paragraph and answer the given questions.
The resettlement home, where Velayudhan’s mother was admitted, has limited
facilities with one physically challenged old doctor to attend around 200 inmates.
There are some nurses deputed by the People’s Council for Social Justice, a not-forprofit
organization. The care-home lacks proper provisions, medicines and
accessories like bed sheets and cleaning materials.
The condition of Velayudhan and his mother suggests a big gap in the muchacclaimed
decentralized anti-poverty programmes of the state and local selfgovernments
(LSG), said noted economist Prof K K George. “There is a need to go
beyond the BPL and APL categorization. What we need is a micro-level intervention
to identify the individual disabilities among the poor and the rich,” he said.
Q.4. What is meant by APL?
(1) After Poverty Limit (2) Above Poverty Line (3) Above Poverty Limit
(4) At Poverty Line (5) Other than those given as options
Q.5. Why do we need to ‘go beyond the BPL and APL categorization’?
(1) We need to provide benefits of anti-poverty programmes to all BPL and APL
(2) We need to identify only individual disabilities and categorise them to get the
benefit of anti-poverty programme
(3) We need to consider individual disabilities to categorise them to get the benefit
of anti-poverty programme
(4) Anti-poverty intervention is needed by both BPL and APL and rich
(5) Micro-level intervention is required by local self-governments
7. Read the following paragraph and answer the given questions.
The Eighth Five Year Plan (1992-97), was launched keeping in mind the necessity implementing measures for stabilization and structural adjustment subsequent to the
Balance of Payments (BOP) crisis of 1991. The Plan took into account the changes
that were to be expected in the economy on account of the adoption of these reform
measures, while keeping in mind the poor performance of the economy in the base
year,1991-92. In the base year the rate of inflation was in double digits, while the
overall growth rate of GDP for that year was negligible.
Q.6. What is the unit of measurement of GDP?
(1) Percentage or proportion
(2) Absolute numberof goods and services
(3) Monetary terms (Rupees, Dollars etc.)
(4) Absolute number per capita
(5) Other than those given as options
Q.7. What is the role of Five Year Plans in India?
(1) To control GDP and BOP only
(2) To plan for overall development of different production sectors
(3) To plan for overall development of different production sectors as well as
