    A company is termed as 'sick' when the accrued loss at the end of financial year results into erosion of ___ % of its net worth.

    • A.

      50%

    • C.

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. 50%
    Explanation
    A company is considered "sick" when its accrued loss at the end of the financial year results in an erosion of 50% of its net worth. This means that the company has incurred significant losses that have significantly reduced its overall value or net worth. This level of erosion indicates a severe financial distress for the company, making it vulnerable and in need of immediate attention and corrective measures.

  • 4. 

    Among the following, which is not an internal factor for industrial sickness?

    • A.

      Power shortage

    • B.

      Mismanagement

    • C.

      Wrong dividend policy

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. Power shortage
    Explanation
    Power shortage is not an internal factor for industrial sickness because it is an external factor that is beyond the control of the company. Industrial sickness refers to the decline or deterioration of a company's financial health due to internal factors such as mismanagement or wrong dividend policy. Power shortage, on the other hand, is a result of external factors such as government policies or infrastructure issues, and it affects multiple industries rather than being specific to a particular company.

    • A.

      It is not available for individual commodities

    • B.

      Services sector does not get covered

    • C.

      It is available only at constant prices

    • D.

      It is available only on monthly basis

    Correct Answer
    B. Services sector does not get covered
    Explanation
    The disadvantage of WPI in India is that the services sector does not get covered. WPI primarily focuses on measuring the changes in the prices of goods at the wholesale level. However, it does not include the prices of services, which is a significant part of the economy. This limitation makes it difficult to capture the overall inflationary pressures in the economy accurately.

      Right to Information Act

    • B.

      Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act

    • C.

      Right to Education Act

    • D.

      Pre-Conception and Prenatal Diagnostic Techniques Act

    Correct Answer
    D. Pre-Conception and Prenatal Diagnostic Techniques Act
    Explanation
    The Pre-Conception and Prenatal Diagnostic Techniques Act may not be characterized as based on a 'rights-based approach' because it primarily focuses on regulating and preventing the misuse of prenatal diagnostic techniques to determine the sex of the fetus. It does not explicitly address or guarantee any specific rights or entitlements for individuals or communities. In contrast, the other legislations mentioned - Right to Information Act, Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act, and Right to Education Act - are all based on a rights-based approach as they aim to ensure and protect the rights of citizens to access information, employment, and education respectively.

    • D.

      None of these

    Explanation
    At the Doha Meet, the major victory for developing countries on the matter of TRIPS was the power to award exemption from the patent regime in the interest of public health. This means that developing countries could bypass patent laws and produce or import generic versions of patented drugs in order to address public health emergencies and ensure affordable access to essential medicines. This victory was significant as it prioritized public health over intellectual property rights, allowing developing countries to tackle health crises effectively.

    C. The crime must have been committed beyond the boundaries of country
    Explanation
