Management Questions answers

Question 1 Explanation: 
Statement 1 is correct. The immediate cause of QIM was the failure of Cripps mission. It was realized that any further silence would be tantamount to accept the right of the British government to decide India's fate without any reference to the wishes of her people. That was also a time of a rising inflation and the acute shortage of food stuffs.
Statement 2 is incorrect. The communists had opposed this movement.

NTA NET Questions answers

Question 2 Explanation: 

Both the statements are correct.

The government is proposing to create a new higher education watchdog, which has been tentatively named Higher Education Empowerment Regulation Agency (HEERA). The current regulators, University Grants Commission (UGC) and the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), will cease functioning to make way for HEERA.

Role and Function of HEERA:

It is expected to eliminate the overlaps in the jurisdiction and remove irrelevant regulatory provisions. It will bring the regulation of both technical and non-technical higher education institutions under one umbrella. Given how both UGC and AICTE have been roundly criticised for their poor handling of higher education so far, HEERA is likely to be structured in a manner that addresses their particular deficiencies.

Question 5 Explanation: 
Statement 1 is correct.

Large amounts of water are stored in the ground. The water is still moving, possibly very slowly, and it is still part of the water cycle. Most of the water in the ground comes from precipitation that infiltrates downward from the land surface.

Statement 2 is correct.

The part of rain or snow-melt water which accumulates in the rocks after seeping through the surface is called underground water or simply groundwater. After vertically going down to some depth, the water under the ground flows horizontally through the bedding planes, joints or through the materials themselves. Any limestone, dolomite or gypsum region showing typical landforms produced by the action of groundwater through the process of solution and deposition is called as Karst Topography (Karst region in the Balkans). On the other hand Sinkholes and caves are erosional landforms formed due to the action of groundwater.
