Aptitude test Questions answers
Question 18 Explanation: 

The construction of the temple began during the rule of the Rashtrakuta king, Dantidurga (735-757 AD). A group of skilled artisans cut and carved the vertical face of the basalt rock of a hill in Elapura, known today as Ellora, near Aurangabad. Unlike the Buddhists who made carvings inside the rock to construct cave temples, this group cut the rock internally and externally, with exquisite precision, to build a monolithic rock temple. The result is the magnificent Kailasa temple, one of the largest rock-cut temples in the world. Major work on the temple was done by King Dantidurga's successor, Krishna I (757-773 AD), although work continued under many successive kings for more than a century.

  • The double-storey gopuram has exquisitely carved sculptures on the walls. Goddesses Ganga and Yamuna flank the entrance gateway.
  • There are five subsidiary shrines around the main temple in the circumambulatory path that runs along the side of the hill.
  • The lotus on the roof of the sanctum is crowned by a finial with four mythical lions, each facing one cardinal direction.

Question 19 Explanation: 

"The satellite, which weighs over 1,300 pounds, is called Quantum Experiments at Space Scale, or Quess, and nicknamed Micius, after a Chinese philosopher and scientist in the fifth century B.C."

"On August 16, China said it had launched a quantum satellite into space that could be the future of wireless communication and set new standards in Internet security. "The project tests a technology that could one day offer digital communication that is hack-proof". The 600-kg satellite will try to communicate with earth using the principle of quantum entanglement, whereby subatomic particles become inextricably linked or "entangled" in such a way that any change in one disturbs the other even if both are at opposite ends of the universe. This means any attempt at hacking entangled particles would, even in principle, be impossible."
