    Directions (21-30): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. PASSAGE I                  Jagir singh has sold red onions at a market in south Delhi every day for the past half century. Perched on an upturned crate, wrapped tight against the chilled air, he offers pyaz, a staple for much Indian cooking, for 60 rupees a kilo, the most he can remember. Business is brisk but most customers pic up only a small handful of onions. That is just as well-wholesale supplies are tight, he says and the quility is poor.                  As India’s Economy grows by some 9% a year, food prices are soaring. In late December the commerce ministry judged that food inflation had rached 18.3%, with pricey vegetables mostly to blame. Offcials have made some attempts to temper the rise in the past month – scrapping import taxes for onions, banning their export and ordering low-priced sales at government -run shops. But there is no quick fix.                 Heavy rain the west of India brough a rotten harvest. Vegetables from farther fields-including a politically sensitive delivery form a nighbouring country-are coslty to move on India’s crowded, potholed roads. Few refrigerated lorries and poor logistics mean that much of each harvest is wasted. Newspapers allege hoarders are cashing in.                  The biggest problems are structural. Food producers, hampered by land restrictions, archaic retail networks and bad infrastructure, fail to meet extra damage from consumers. It was estimated in October that a 39% rise in some per person in the previous five years might have created an extra 220 million regular consumers of milk, eggs, meat and fish. Supplies have not kept up with this potential damand.                  The border inflation rate may be a less eye watering problem than the onions suggest. The central bank has lifted intrest rates steadily in the past year and is expected to do so again later this month. Headline inflation fell to 7.5% in November, down by just over a percentage point from October, through it is still above the central bank’s forcast of 5.5% for March. Q 1.
