But I did not want to shoot the elephant.  I watched him beating his bunch of grass against his knees, with the preoccupied grandmotherly air that elephants have.  It seemed to me that it would be murder to shoot him.  I had never shot an elephant and never wanted to.  (Somehow it always seems worse to kill a large animal.)   Besides, there was the beast’s owner to be considered.  But I had got to act quickly.  I turned to some experienced-looking Burmans who had been there when we arrived, and asked them how the elephant had been behaving.   They all said the same thing: he took no notice of you if you left him alone, but he might charge if you went too close to him.

Given the sharp decline in the Dow Jones Industrial Average with mega-cap corporations leading the way, it seems the likelihood of hitting levels indicative of a double dip recession is probable, if not imminent, in the upcoming months. Our analysts recommend that investors closely observe industry ratings, take caution in their attempts to capitalize on yearly lows, and remain vigilant of the aforementioned sell-off predictions.

Nationalism, of course, is a curious phenomenon which at a certain stage in a country’s history gives life, growth and unity but, at the same time, it has a tendency to limit one, because one thinks of one’s country as something different from the rest of the world.  One’s perspective changes and one is continuously thinking of one’s own struggles and virtues and failing to the exclusion of other thoughts.  The result is that the same nationalism which is the symbol of growth for a people becomes a symbol of the cessation of that growth in the mind.  Nationalism, when it becomes successful, sometimes goes on spreading in an aggressive way and becomes a danger internationally.  Whatever line of thought you follow, you arrive at the conclusion that some kind of balance must be found.  Otherwise something that was good can turn into evil.  Culture, which is essentially good becomes not only static but aggressive and something that breeds conflict and hatred when looked at from a wrong point of view.  How are you to find a balance, I don’t know.  Apart from the political and economic problems of the age, perhaps that is the greatest problem today because behind it there is a tremendous search for something which it cannot find.  We turn to economic theories because they have an undoubted importance.  It is folly to talk of culture or even of God when human beings starve and die.  Before one can talk about anything else one must provide the normal essentials of life to human beings.  That is where economics comes in.  human beings today are not in the mood to tolerate this suffering and starvation and inequality when they see that the burden is not equally shared. Others profit while they only bear the burden.

(a) breeds threat to international relations                                               (b)leads to stunted growth

In his thought-provoking work, Philosophical Investigations, Ludwig Wittgenstein uses an easily conceptualized scenario in an attempt to clarify some of the problems involved in thinking about the mind as something over and above the behaviors that it produces. Imagine, he says, that everyone has a small box in which they keep a beetle. No one is allowed to look in anyone else’s box, only in their own. Over time, people talk about what is in their boxes and the word “beetle” comes to stand for what is in everyone’s box.

Through this curious example, Wittgenstein attempts to point out that the beetle is very much like an individual’s mind; no one can know exactly what it is like to be another person or experience things from another’s perspective—look in someone else’s “box”—but it is generally assumed that the mental workings of other people’s minds are very similar to that of our own (everyone has a “beetle” which is more or less similar to everyone else’s). However, it does not really matter—he argues—what is in the box or whether everyone indeed has a beetle, since there is no way of checking or comparing. In a sense, the word “beetle”—if it is to have any sense or meaning—simply means “what is in the box”. From this point of view, the mind is simply “what is in the box”, or rather “what is in your head”.

Wittgenstein argues that although we cannot know what it is like to be someone else, to say that there must be a special mental entity called a mind that makes our experiences private, is wrong. His rationale is that he considers language to have meaning because of public usage. In other words, when we talk of having a mind—or a beetle—we are using a term that we have learned through conversation and public discourse (rooted in natural language). The word might be perceived differently in each of our minds, but we all agree that it signifies something; this allows us to develop language for talking about conceptualizations like color, mood, size and shape. Therefore, the word “mind” cannot be used to refer specifically to some entity outside of our individualized conception, since we cannot see into other people’s boxes.

54. Based on information in the passage, Wittgenstein apparently believes that

I. it is best to think of mental states as nothing over and above the behaviors they produce

II. the public use of language is responsible for misconceptions about the mind

III. through the use of precise language, it is possible to accurately describe the shared properties of the mind

A. I only                                     B. II only                                    C. I and II only       D. II and III only                     E. I, II, and III

55.Which of the following literary devices best describes Wittgenstein’s use of the “beetle in a box” scenario?

A. Authorial intrusion, characterized by a point at which the author speaks out directly to the reader.

B. Aphorism, characterized by the use of a concise statement that is made in a matter of fact tone to state a principle or an opinion that is generally understood to be a universal truth.

C. Amplification, characterized by the embellishment or extension of a statement in order to give it greater worth or meaning.

D. Allegory, characterized by the use of symbolic representation to convey the meaning of an often abstract concept.

E. Ambiguity, characterized by the expression of an idea in such a way that it becomes possible to glean more than one meaning from it.

56. Wittgenstein would most likely disagree with which of the following statements?

A. It is impossible to know another person’s thoughts.

B. The mind is a special mental substance.

C. The color green may actually look different to everybody.

D. Words do not always accurately represent the things they symbolize.

E. It takes time for public discourse to create a new word with a common meaning.

57. As used in paragraph 3, which is the best synonym for discourse?

A. exchange             B. conversation                        C. announcement                      D. knowledge                           E. setting

58.Based on his use of the “beetle in a box” comparison in the passage, it can be inferred that Wittgenstein might similarly compare a room full of people to a

A. deck of cards      B. box of chocolates                C. collection of rocks             D. library of books                                                                               E. group of drinking glasses filled with water


The casual horrors and the real disasters are thrown at newspaper readers without discrimination.  In the contemporary arrangements for circulating the news, an important element, evaluation, is always weak and often wanting entirely.  There is no point anywhere along the line where someone puts his foot down for certain and says, “This is important and that doesn’t amount to a row of beans; deserves no one’s attention, and should travel the wires no farther.”  The junk is dressed up to look as meaningful as the real news.

The Indian Middle Class consists of so many strata that it defies categorization under a single term class, which would imply a considerable degree of homogeneity.  Yet two paradoxical features characterize its conduct fairly uniformly: extensive practice and intensive abhorrence of corruption. In the several recent surveys of popular perceptions of corruption, politicians of course invariably and understandably top the list, closely followed by bureaucrats, policemen, lawyers, businessmen and the quintessential middle class.  If teachers do not figure high on this priority list.  It is not for lack of trying, but for lack of opportunities.  Over the years, the sense or shock over acts of corruption in the middle class has witnessed a stead de-cline, as its ambitions for a better material life have soared but the resources for meeting such ambitions have not kept pace. What is fascinating, however, is the intense yearning of this class for a clean corruption less polity and society, a yearning that has again and again surfaced with any figure public or obscure, focusing on his mission of eradicating corruption.  Even the repeated failure of this promise on virtually every man’s part has not subjected it to the law of diminishing returns.
