Photo bleeding means
Photo colour adjustment
Question 2 Explanation:
In printing there are plates for each color. They are like stencils (though they are really relief/etchings). When the color is laid down you need overlapping edges so there is no undesirable space between the edges of each color. The overlap is called "bleed." An example: A blue background with a single bold text "T" in yellow. The paper starts out white, the "T" goes in with yellow then the blue is laid down. You would want to avoid any white around the "T" so the "T" is slightly oversized. This allows the blue and yellow inks to blend a little avoiding any gaps. A bleed is also a print that runs off the edge of the printed material. A "full bleed" is when the print runs off all four edges. Vector and page layout software has print settings for bleed. With images like a photo of a scene, the content of the image is not bled but the image itself is treated like an object so its edges (borders) are bled when necessary. Depending on how you set it up you may have text overlays/superimposed over a photo which would have a bleed as well. Source

Identify the parameter which does not measure central tendency among the following parameters
Question 11 Explanation:
Measure of central tendency is a value that represents a typical, or central, entry of a data set. The most common measures of central tendency are:
- Mean (Average): The sum of all the data entries divided by the number of entries.
- Median: The value that lies in the middle of the data when the data set is ordered. If the data set has an odd number of entries, then the median is the middle data entry. If the data has an even number of entries, then the median is obtained by adding the two numbers in the middle and dividing result by two.
- Mode: The data entry that occurs with the greatest frequency. A data set may have one mode, more than one mode, or no mode. If no entry is repeated the data set has no mode.
- Outliers are not just greatest and least values, but values that are very different from the pattern established by the rest of the data. Outliers affect the mean. When outliers are present it is best to use the median as the measure of central tendency.
In the process of conducting research ''Formulation of Hypothesis" is followed by
Statement of Objectives
Analysis of Data
Selection of Research Tools
Collection of Data
Question 12 Explanation:
When research is conducted hypothesis formulation is one of the most preliminary steps. Hypothesis formulation helps in formulating the research problem. Hypothesis formulation is not a necessary but an important step of the research. A valid and reasonable research can be conducted without any hypothesis. Hypothesis can be one and it can be as many as possible. Some studies are conducted to develop a hypothesis, like exploratory studies, so exploratory studies do not have a clear hypothesis. Descriptive studies can also be conducted without a hypothesis. In explanatory studies, that develop a relationship between dependent and independent variable, as well as, explain the type of relationship between the two variables, there is always a hypothesis. Example: For example if you want to conduct a study on the Effects of Parental Depression on the Academic Performance of Children, you may like to conduct it without any hypothesis but then you will have many dimensions to think upon and will be more likely get distracted. If you formulate a hypothesis, that parental depression results in depression in children too and this depression leads to low grades, your research will get a direction and you will not think about the broader effects of depression everything is well defined you have to test the impact of depression on the children’s depression and as well as on the grades of children. You may not need to test the impacts on the extracurricular activities, class conduct, and other such things. Source

Read the following passage and answer the questions 45 to 50:
Poor and rural people around the world rely on plants and animals for shelter, food, income, and medicine. In fact, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal SDG1 on sustainable ecosystems acknowledges many developing societies' close relationship with nature when it calls for increased ''capacity of local communities to pursue sustainable livelihood opportunities.'' But how is this to be achieved? The 1975 Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora CITES) provides a viable framework for reducing poverty while also conserving nature. It regulates the harvesting and exchange of more than 35, 000 wildlife species across a range of locales. Nature has been described as the ''GDP of the poor.'' The CITES framework, combined with strong national conservation policies, can simultaneously protect wild species and benefit poor, rural, and indigenous people, by encouraging countries and communities to adopt sound environmental management plans. For example, under CITES, Andes communities shear the vicuna for its fine wool, which they sell to the luxury fashion industry in other parts of the world. Cameroonians collect African cherry bark for export to European pharmaceutical companies. And people on the Tibetan Plateau in Bhutan make a living selling caterpillar fungus to the traditional-medicine industry. However, outside of CITES, limited guidance is available to ensure that legal trade is sustainable and beneficial to the poor. Sustainable trade often depends on poor and rural communities conserving their own resources at the local level. To see what that looks like, the International Trade Center ITC) recently examined how people in Southeast Asia sustainably manage the CITES-listed python trade Python skins are commonly used as raw material in the luxury fashion industry, and ITC surveys of python-skin harvesters, farmers, processors, and exporters in Vitenam and Malasia found that the trade reinforces livelihood resilience by providing an additional source of income. In Vietnam, an estimated 1, 000 households farm and trade pythons, and python harvesting in Malaysia provides incomes for low-skilled, low-income workers during periods when other employment opportunities are either out of season, or simply scarce because of larger economic factors. Researchers found that most of those harvesting pythons implement simple and effective sustainable-management plans, and that this has reduced pressure on wild populations. However, python skins, like many wildlife products, are a commodity, so communities harvesting them are limited in terms of how they can add value to increase returns. Women in the Peruvian Andes may clean vicuna wool by hand to increase the price it fetches per kilogram by $50, whereas selling a wool-scarf could yield them $150-200; a Malaysian python skin sells for $200, while a python-skin bag could sell for $2, 000. Still, some emerging countries are moving up the value chain and retaining a greater share of returns, as demonstrated by local brands such as Kuna, which markets alpaca and vicuna wool in Peru, and Natura, a Brazilian natural-cosmetic brand. The biggest threats to the legal wildlife trade are poaching, smuggling, improper trade permitting, and animal abuse, all of which must be addressed by regulators and rural community stakeholders at the local level. Fortunately, rural communities are already in the best position to protect wildlife, so long as they are motivated to do so. In the right circumstances, a virtuous cycle, whereby local producers have a direct interest in protecting wildlife because they are benefiting from its legal trade) is the best-and sometimes the only-long-term solution to the problem of sustainability. To help with this, governments can increase rural communities' resource-and wildlife-use rights so that they can manage and protect their natural resources sustainably. For example, in the 1970s when Peru granted Andean communities the right to use vicuna wool, it saved the vicuna from extinction and created new, long-term income streams for the community. Because legal and natural circumstances vary by country and community, we will need similar policy innovations across different sectors.What are the biggest threats to the legal wildlife trade?
