1) All questions are compulsory.

Q. 1. Read the passage and answer the questions that follow:

Targets set by policymakers to slow global warming are too soft to prevent more heatwaves and extreme temperatures in the US within a few years, with grim consequences for human health and farming. A study warned this week. Although the US and more than 100 countries agreed in Copenhagen last year to take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions so as to hold the increase in, global temperature below two degrees Celcius, a  study conducted by  Stanford  University scientists showed that might not be enough. Stanford earth sciences professor  Noel  Deffenbaugh wrote in the study published in Geophysical Research Letters. That  ‘Constraining global warming to two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial conditions may not be sufficient to avoid dangerous climate change. “In the next 30 years, we could see an increase in heat waves like the one now occurring in the eastern  US or the kind that swept across  Europe in  2003  that caused thousands of fatalities,” said Deffenbaugh, lead author of the study. ‘Those kinds of severe heat events put enormous stress on major crops like corn,  soybean,  cotton,  and wine grapes,  causing a significant reduction in yield’ he said. Deffenbaugh used two dozen climate models to project what could happen in the US if carbon dioxide emissions cause temperatures to rise 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit between 2010 and 2039 a likely scenario,  according to the  UN’s  International panel on climate change.  If that occurs, the mean global temperature in 30 years would be about 2 degrees Celsius hotter than in the pre-industrial era of the 1850s.
(i) Which of the following can be inferred from the first paragraph of the passage? 

(a) In the coming years, global warming is likely to become more intense as the changes seen on the sun are getting virulent by the day.
(b) The measures promised by the US and the other 100 countries at the Copenhagen are not being followed.

c) In the next couple of years, the global warming is going to go soft on earth.

(d) The measures agreed to be adopted by the US and other 100 countries at the Copenhagen are too soft to check global warming.

(ii) With which of the following possibilities of global warming is the author of the passage most likely to disagree? 

(a) Heat waves are likely to cause a large number of fatalities in the US in the years to come.

(b) The temperature rise on the earth’s surface is likely to harm farming in a     crucial way.
(c) The steps proposed at Copenhagen are likely to reverse the pattern of global warming in the next 30 years.
(d) In the next 30 years the earth’s surface is likely to get warmer by two degrees Celcius than what it was in the pre-industrial era of the 1850s.

(iii) What has been suggested in the study published in Geophysics Research Letters as cited in the passage? 

(iv) What action did the US and 100 countries agreed to take at Copenhagen?

(v) What has been predicted for the next 30 years in the research reported in the passage.
