Section: Section IIQ.1)The passage given below is followed by a set of three questions. Choose the most appropriate answer to each question.

The beauty of flowers has been taken for granted by people for as long as people have been leaving records of what they considered beautiful. The equation of flowers and beauty was apparently made by all the great civilizations of antiquity. This world-historical consensus about the beauty of flowers, which seems so right and uncontroversial to us, is remarkable when you consider that there are relatively few things in nature whose beauty people haven't had to invent: sunrise, the plumage of birds, the human face and form, and flowers. There may be a few more, but not many. Mountains were ugly until just a few centuries ago ('warts on the earth,' Donne had called them, in an echo of the general consensus); forests were the 'hideous' haunts of Satan until the Romantics rehabilitated them. Flowers have had their poets too, but they never needed them in quite the same way.The love of flowers is almost, but not quite, universal. The 'not quite' refers to Africa, where flowers play almost no part in religious observance or everyday social ritual. (The exceptions are those parts of Africa that came into early contact with other civilizations - the Islamic north, for example.) Africans seldom grow domesticated flowers, and flower imagery seldom shows up in African art or religion. Apparently when Africans speak or write about flowers, it is usually with an eye to the promise of fruit rather than the thing itself.There are two possible explanations for the absence of a culture of flowers in Africa. The economic explanation is that people can't afford to pay attention to flowers until they have enough to eat; a well-developed culture of flowers is a luxury that most of Africa historically has not been able to support. The other explanation is that the ecology of Africa doesn't offer a lot of flowers, or at least not a lot of showy ones. Relatively few of the world's domesticated flowers have come from Africa, and the range of flower species on the continent is nowhere near as extensive as it is in, say, Asia or even North America. What flowers one does encounter on the savannah, for example, tend to bloom briefly and then vanish for the duration of the dry season.Could this mean that the beauty of flowers is in fact in the eye of the beholder - is something people have constructed, like the sublimity of mountains or the spiritual lift we feel in a forest? If so, why did so many different peoples invent it in so many different times and places? More likely, the African case is simply the exception that proves the rule. Africans quickly adopted a culture of flowers wherever others introduced it. Maybe the love of flowers is a predilection all people share, but it's one that cannot itself flower until conditions are ripe - until there are lots of flowers around and enough leisure to stop and smell them.

What is the main point of this passage?

Before the Age of Reason, the distinction between art and science was not synonymous with that between intuition and rationality respectively. In medieval times, men of science were chroniclers of antique knowledge and theory - a practice that did not necessarily require an inquiring mind. 'Art', by contrast, implied technical or manual skill, and a chemist was as much an artist as a painter was.

Q.11)

Two hundred million years ago, there were no flowers. There were plants then, of course, but these plants didn't form true flowers or fruit and so couldn't support many warm-blooded creatures. Flowers changed everything. The angiosperms, as botanists call the plants that form flowers and then encase seeds, appeared during the Cretaceous period and they spread over the earth with stunning rapidity. By producing sugars and proteins to entice animals to disperse their seed, the angiosperms multiplied the world's supply of food energy, making possible the rise of large warm-blooded mammals, including human beings, eventually. Without flowers, the reptiles, which had prospered in a leafy, fruitless world, would probably still rule.

Q.17)The passage given below is followed by a set of four questions. Choose the most appropriate answer to each question.

Since the 1950s, the media, aided and abetted by a lot of professional geneticists who ought to know better, have created a myth of genetic determinism. The enormous prominence given to the magical powers of DNA has led a lot of people to believe that once you have listed an organism's DNA code - its genome -then you've pretty much understood that organism. After all, the genome is the information needed to make the organism, isn't it? And surely, once you know the information, you know everything about the organism? This is why thousands of private investors, and national governments, have poured tens of billions of dollars into biotechnology companies and academic research. They have been promised that once we know the DNA sequence of a human being, we will be able to cure hundreds of new diseases. Those promises have been made not just by the media, but by thousands of professional biologists who really should know better. In this myth, the only important thing you need to know about an organism is its genome. This is the belief that lies at the core of Jurassic Park (the film as well as the book it is based on): that the genetic 'blueprint' for the organism determines everything about it. However, organisms are far more complicated than just a 'message' written in DNA.The list of things that affect how an organism develops, but aren't DNA, is enormous. Parents often supply 'privilege' - extra food, such as yolk in an egg or milk. For example, there is the anglerfish, a fish whose DNA does not even tell it which sex it should be. The trigger that determines its sex is some chemical, probably a hormone, which causes the juvenile anglerfish to develop into a male. If the trigger is absent, the fish becomes a female.Let's take this point one step further. All vertebrates start much the same: the embryos are very similar at what is called the phylotypic stage (stage typical of the phylum): all annelid worms look similar at their phylotypic stage, as do all gastropod molluscs (snails). Very different eggs (think of chicken egg, mammal egg, frog-spawn, caviar among vertebrates) all converge on to the phylotypic stage, and the strange thing is that they don't need their genetic instructions to do it. The egg architecture, plus a suite of clever molecules called informosomes copied from the mother's genetics, guides the pre-phyletic embryo to its phylotypic shape, with its nuclei in lots of different kinds of cells. These different cells call up a different developmental programme from each of their nuclei, so that different genes are expressed in liver, kidney, nervous system and skin. In a very real sense, vertebrates are vertebrate because their mothers were: they made eggs that developed into vertebrate phylotypic embryos, which then read out their genes in the characteristic vertebrate way. Because of this two-step development, it is much easier to have a well-controlled passage of information: think of the egg as the tapeplayer, the chromosomal DNA information as the tape, which has on it instructions for making the ovary that makes eggs - tape-players - of the appropriate kind. That rather destroys the background 'science' of Jurassic Park, because it suggests that the tape player evolves as well as the DNA tape. Ostrich eggs, and a bit of frog DNA to fill in the gaps in the tape, just won't work. Nature agrees: rat nuclei (complete good-condition nuclei, not DNA that's been through a mosquito gut and then been bombarded by cosmic rays for 70 million years) won't develop properly in mouse eggs, and vice versa. And rat and mouse are a lot closer together than ostriches and tyrannosaurs, or frogs and velociraptors.The future may have special tricks ... but the Jurassic Park 'science' was based on 'folk' DNA genetics: the belief that the organism is only its DNA writ large. The film is an entertainment, not an educational tool, and it achieved its purpose. But we should bear in mind at least 'tape-player and tape', and not simple media-talk about the DNA being the blueprint for the organism.
