ANSWERS

 

1. Ans: a

Justification:

  • Indian writers like Bankim Chandra Chatterjee (Bengali, 1838-1894) and others made use of newly acquired concept of nationalism to attack colonial rule, and in the process created their own brand of nationalism, rooted in the soil. Bankim Chandra wrote many historical novels like Durgesh Nandini(1965), and Anand Math (1882), acquired a pan-Indian popularity and made nationalism and patriotism a part of dharma.

 2. Ans: c

Justification:

  • Bhand Pather, the traditional theatre form of Kashmir, is a unique combination of dance, music and acting. Satire, wit and parody are preferred for inducing laughter. In this theatre form, music is provided with surnai, nagaara and dhol. Since the actors of Bhand Pather are mainly from the farming community, the impact of their way of living, ideals and sensitivity is discernible.
  • Bhavai is the traditional theatre form of Gujarat. The centers of this form are Kutch and Kathiawar. The instruments used in Bhavai are: bhungal, tabla, flute, pakhaawaj, rabaab, sarangi, manjeera, etc. In Bhavai, there is a rare synthesis of devotional and romantic sentiments.

 3. Ans: c

Justification:

  • LPG stands for Liquide Petroleum Gas, which is a mix of Propane, Butane (C3H8 and C4H10) and even some Pentane. Because of the high vapour pressure of both the propane and Butane at room temperature, especially the high propane content in the LPG dictates that these components need to be stored in pressured vessels.

 4. Ans: d

Justification:

  • India is also planning to build Trincomalee Port at Srilanka. The port is envisioned as an Indian counterweight to Chinese developments at Hambantota Port.

5. Ans: a

Justification:

  • The Abhinaya Darpana by Nandikesvara is one of the main sources of textual material, for the study of the technique and grammar of body movement in Bharatnatyam Dance.
