Question 2 Explanation: 

Section 377 of Indian Penal Code was struck down by the Delhi High Court in July 2009 (popularly known as the 'Naz Foundation case'). However, overruling this judgment, the Supreme Court in 2014 upheld Section 377 IPC in what is popularly referred to as the Kaushal judgment. Now, the Constitution Bench which gave its verdict recently on the right to privacy also dealt with the issue of Section 377:
* The 2014 judgment's view that "a miniscule fraction of the country's population constitutes lesbians, gays, bisexuals or transgenders" was not a sustainable basis to deny the right to privacy, Justice D.Y. Chandrachud observed in his judgment.
* "The test of popular acceptance does not furnish a valid basis to disregard rights which are conferred with the sanctity of constitutional protection. Discrete and insular minorities face grave dangers of discrimination for the simple reason that their views, beliefs or way of life does not accord with the 'mainstream'. Yet in a democratic Constitution founded on the rule of law, their rights are as sacred as those conferred on other citizens to protect their freedoms and liberties," he observed.
* Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul, in his separate judgment, seconded Justice Chandrachud, while observing that the "majoritarian concept" does not apply to constitutional rights. "Courts are often called upon to take what may be categorised as a non-majoritarian view One's sexual orientation is undoubtedly an attribute of privacy," Justice Kaul added.
* The judgment stopped short of overruling the SC's previous (2014) order. It is for a five-judge bench, which is looking at the curative petition, to take a final call.

Question 4 Explanation: 

The soils of Peninsular India are formed by the decomposition of rocks in situ, i.e. directly from the underlying rocks. Soils of Peninsular India are transported and re-deposited to a limited extent and are known as sedentary soils.

Alluvial soils are formed mainly due to silt deposited by Indo-Gangetic- Brahmaputra Rivers. In coastal regions some alluvial deposits are formed due to wave action.

Rocks of the Himalayas form the parent material. Thus the parent material of these soils is of transported origin. "
