     Insurance is meant to:

    • A.

      Prevent specified events

    • B.

      Prevent damage to assets from specified events

    • C.

      Compensate for losses from specified events

    • E.

      All of these

    Correct Answer
    C. Compensate for losses from specified events
    Explanation
    Insurance is meant to compensate for losses from specified events. This means that when a specified event occurs, such as an accident or natural disaster, insurance is designed to provide financial support to help cover the costs and damages incurred. It does not aim to prevent the events or the damage to assets, but rather to provide compensation for the losses that result from these events. Therefore, the correct answer is "Compensate for losses from specified events."

    The amount of Insurance depends upon:

    • A.

      The peril

    • B.

      The risk

    • C.

      Neither the peril nor the risk

    • D.

      Both the peril and the risk

    • E.

      None

    Correct Answer
    D. Both the peril and the risk
    Explanation
    The amount of insurance depends on both the peril and the risk. Peril refers to the specific event or cause of loss that is covered by the insurance policy, such as fire, theft, or natural disasters. The risk, on the other hand, refers to the likelihood or probability of that event occurring. Insurance companies assess both the type of peril and the level of risk associated with it to determine the appropriate amount of coverage needed. This ensures that the policyholder is adequately protected against potential losses.

    • B.

      The income of the insured person when he took the insurance

    • C.

    • D.

      All of the above

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The amount payable under a life insurance policy depends on the amount of the sum assured. This means that the insurance company will pay out the predetermined sum of money stated in the policy upon the death of the insured person. The income of the insured person at the time of the claim or when he took the insurance may be factors considered when determining the premium or eligibility for the policy, but they do not directly affect the amount payable. Therefore, the correct answer is "The amount of the sum assured."

      Transferability

    • C.

      Liquidity

    • D.

      All of the above

    • E.

      None

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Life insurance is better than other avenues of savings in respect of marketability, transferability, and liquidity. Marketability refers to the ease with which an asset can be bought or sold, and life insurance policies can be easily bought or sold in the market. Transferability refers to the ability to transfer ownership of an asset, and life insurance policies can be easily transferred to another individual. Liquidity refers to the ease with which an asset can be converted into cash, and life insurance policies can be surrendered for cash value if needed. Therefore, all of the above options are correct in stating that life insurance is better than other avenues of savings in these respects.

    Correct Answer
    B. An insurer placing insurance with another insurer
    Explanation
    Reinsurance refers to the act of an insurer transferring a portion of its risk to another insurer. This is done by the insurer placing insurance with another insurer, who then agrees to cover a portion of the risk in exchange for a premium. This enables the primary insurer to mitigate its exposure to large losses and maintain financial stability. Therefore, the correct answer is "An insurer placing insurance with another insurer."

    Which one of these principles does not apply in the case of a life insurance contract?

    • A.

      The principle of indemnity

    • B.

      The principle of good faith

    • C.

      The principle of insurable interest

    • D.

      The principle of large numbers

    • E.

      Both 1 and 3

    Correct Answer
    A. The principle of indemnity
    Explanation
    The principle of indemnity does not apply in the case of a life insurance contract. This principle states that the insured should be compensated for the actual value of the loss or damage incurred. However, in the case of a life insurance contract, the value of a person's life cannot be determined or quantified in the same way as physical property. Therefore, life insurance policies provide a predetermined sum of money upon the death of the insured, rather than compensating for the actual value of the loss.

    Correct Answer
    A. Plotter.
    Explanation
    A plotter is a type of large printer that can accurately produce images requiring precise, continuous lines. Unlike inkjet printers, dot-matrix printers, and laser printers, which use a rasterization process to create images from tiny dots, plotters use a pen or marker to draw lines directly onto the paper. This makes them ideal for tasks that require high precision, such as architectural or engineering drawings. HP Printer is not a type of printer, but a brand, so it is not the correct answer.

    • E.

      95

    Correct Answer
    C. 122
    Explanation
    In the pie chart, the corporate sector is represented by a specific portion of the chart. To find the central angle for this sector, we need to determine the percentage of the total chart that it represents. By visually estimating the size of the sector, it appears to be approximately 30% of the total chart. Since a full circle is 360 degrees, we can calculate the central angle by multiplying the percentage (30%) by 360. This gives us 108 degrees, which is closest to the option 122.

    • D.

      27346

    • E.

      20150

    Correct Answer
    B. 24363
    Explanation
    Based on the given pie chart, the investment by NRI's is represented by the blue section, which is approximately 10% of the total. If this 10% corresponds to Rs 4,000 crore, then the total investment by all categories of investors is 100%. To find the approximate investment by corporate houses and FII's together, we need to subtract the investment by NRI's from the total. Therefore, the approximate investments by corporate houses and FII's together is 100% - 10% = 90%. To calculate this in crores, we can use the proportion: (90/100) * Total = Rs 4,000 crore. Solving for Total gives us Total = (4000 * 100) / 90 = Rs 4444.44 crore. Therefore, the approximate investments by corporate houses and FII's together is Rs 4444.44 crore, which is closest to 24363 crore.

    What will be the length of the diagonal of that square plot whose area is equal to the area of a rectangular port of length 45 meters and breadth 40 meters?

    • A.

      42.5 meters

    • B.

      60 meters

    • C.

      Data inadequate

    • D.

      45 meters

    • E.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. 60 meters
    Explanation
    The length of the diagonal of a square can be found using the Pythagorean theorem. Since the area of the rectangular port is given as 45 meters by 40 meters, the area is 1800 square meters. To find the length of the side of the square, we take the square root of the area, which is approximately 42.43 meters. Since the diagonal of a square is equal to the side length multiplied by the square root of 2, the length of the diagonal is approximately 60 meters. Therefore, the correct answer is 60 meters.

    • C.

    • D.

      300 m

    • E.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    D. 300 m
    Explanation
    Let the altitude of the triangular field be x. According to the given information, the base of the field is 3x. The area of a triangle is given by (1/2) * base * height. Therefore, the area of the field is (1/2) * 3x * x = (3/2) * x^2. The cost of cultivating the field is given as Rs. 333.18 per hectare, which is equivalent to Rs. 333.18/10000 per square meter. The cost of cultivating the field is also equal to the area of the field multiplied by the cost per square meter. Therefore, (3/2) * x^2 * (333.18/10000) = 333.18. Solving this equation, we find x = 10. Therefore, the base of the field is 3x = 3 * 10 = 30 and the height is x = 10.

    • E.

      19:15

    Correct Answer
    B. 15:16
    Explanation
    The ratio of the areas of two squares is equal to the square of the ratio of their side lengths. In this case, the ratio of the areas is given as 225:256, which means the ratio of the side lengths is the square root of 225:256, which simplifies to 15:16. The perimeter of a square is four times its side length, so the ratio of their perimeters is also 15:16.

    One of sides of a right-angled triangle is twice the other, and the hypotenuse is 10 cm. The area of the triangle is :

    • A.

      20 cm2

    • B.

      33 1/3 cm2

    • C.

      40 cm2

    • D.

      50 cm2

    • E.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. 20 cm2
    Explanation
    In a right-angled triangle, the square of the length of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides. Let's assume the shorter side of the triangle is x cm. According to the given information, the longer side is twice the shorter side, so it is 2x cm. Using the Pythagorean theorem, we can set up the equation: (2x)^2 + x^2 = 10^2. Simplifying this equation gives us 5x^2 = 100, which further simplifies to x^2 = 20. Taking the square root of both sides, we get x = √20 cm. The area of the triangle is calculated by multiplying the lengths of the two sides and dividing by 2, so the area is (x * 2x) / 2 = 2x^2 / 2 = x^2 = 20 cm^2. Therefore, the correct answer is 20 cm^2.

    The sides of a triangle are 3 cm, 4 cm, and 5 cm. The area (in cm2) of the triangle formed by joining the mid-points of the sides of this triangle is:

    • A.

      3/4

    • B.

      3/2

    • C.

      3

    • D.

      6

    • E.

      5

    Correct Answer
    B. 3/2
    Explanation
    The area of a triangle formed by joining the mid-points of the sides of a triangle is always equal to half the area of the original triangle. In this case, the original triangle has sides of 3 cm, 4 cm, and 5 cm. Using Heron's formula, we can calculate the area of the original triangle to be 6 cm^2. Therefore, the area of the triangle formed by joining the mid-points of the sides is 6/2 = 3 cm^2, which is equivalent to 3/2.
