C) For areas falling under this category, the regulated zone extends only 100m inland from the high-tide line. 

D) India’s coastal regions have witnessed tepid growth in terms of size and economy. 

E) Contrasting this with China, where the coastal population stood at 590 million in 2010, roughly half the population of the country, 


Q2. 

A) That’s the approach of General Motors Co., whose chief executive officer Mary Barra is scrapping a $1 billion investment in India and halting sales of Chevrolet models there altogether. 

B) Thin profit margins in the market—overwhelmingly dominated by Maruti Suzuki India Ltd, with a 47% share—could weigh on GM globally for years to come. 

C) In a world where major automakers are losing their minds about the potential of the fast-growing Indian market, it’s a refreshing change when a big player puts on its green eye-shades to take the contrarian view. 

D) But in a world where the current big three car markets are contracting in unison for the first time since 2009, growth isn’t a small thing to sacrifice. 

E) It takes guts to quit a market that’s expected to be the world’s biggest in about four years, but the automotive sector is currently the least-loved in the S&P 500.

D) The timing is also puzzling because it’s embarrassingly close to last month’s all-important gathering of China’s top politicians on “safeguarding national financial-market security”.

C) In the limited fossil evidence we have for prehistoric hominins, a group that includes humans and our immediate ancestors, there is surprisingly abundant evidence of cannibalism. So why were these individuals eating each other? 

D) Considering the difficulty in hunting another human, these results suggests that cannibalism may not have been for nutritional reasons as has been previously reported. 

E) Neanderthals, were extremely complex behaviorally, they were a symbolic species with jewelry, cultural diversity in terms of stone tool manufacture, and they had a complex attitude to the burial of their dead. 

Q5.
