Question 3 Explanation: 

GATS 2 was conducted between August 2016 and February 2017 by TISS, Mumbai for the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

The GATS (under the aegis of the World Health Organisation) is a global standard for systematically monitoring adult tobacco use (smoking and smokeless) and tracking key tobacco control indicators.

Improvisation ( TH ): Contrary to tobacco companies' claims, there is now empirical evidence that large, graphic pictorial warnings on tobacco products have a telling effect on consumer behaviour. From 38% in 2009-10, the proportion of cigarette smokers in India who thought of quitting due to pictorial warnings increased sharply to nearly 62% in 2016-17. Though not dramatic, the proportion of bidi smokers who wanted to quit also increased from about 30% to 54%, according to the Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS), undertaken in 2009-10 and 2016-17, respectively. The increase among adults wanting to quit smokeless tobacco was also significant - 34% to 46% during the two periods.
