PASSAGE – I (QUESTIONS 1 - 20)
FSL was a food manufacturing company established in 1945. Until 1995 its major products consisted of
tomato specialties such as pickles and barbecue sauces. Its consumer products business accounted for 40%
of sales; the balance consisted of sales to restaurants, hospitals and armed forces. The company has
advertised for restaurant, hospital market but never for household consumers.
In 1995, the company introduced products meant for consumer market. The line was composed of a number
of dishes. Each package contained all of the necessary ingredients (except meat) including seasoned tomato
sauce, cheese and noodles.
Jagdish, son of the company's president, had conceived the idea for the line of products. Jagdish’s
enthusiasm for the product was quickly picked up by other executives. The financial expert wanted expansion
would enable the company to solve a number of financial problems associated with its inability to attract
outside capital.
Many meetings were held through the summer. The original thinking of the committee was that the product
line should be introduced at the beginning of the food merchandising season, which started on about October
1. This deadline however, subsequently proved to be unrealistic. Production of the first items in the line did not
get underway until September 30 and packaging difficulties prohibited introducing product before mid
December.
In July the problems involved in the product introduction were not foremost in the planner's thoughts. Many
hours were spent on discussing the name of the product. Finally, the name Vegetable Scotch was adopted
but without enthusiasm from the president's son who believed that a name did not express the gourmet image
that he thought the name should express. With the exception of the name this man directed most of the
decisions related to the marketing program. From the beginning he argued that there were already plenty of
middle class products on the grocer's shelves. What was needed, he believed, was a prestige-even a
"gourmet'- line. The popularity of expensive restaurants in cities convinced young manager of the opportunity
to market these food specialties.
Early in the planning it was decided to limit distribution to the regional markets in which this company had
previously established its reputation. National distribution would be undertaken from the beginning. It was
planned that preparation would be marketed in all major food chain and headquarters would be made by food
brokers handling such products rather than brokers used to handling goods.
For the first time in its experience, FSL planned to undertake an extensive consumer - advertising
programme. A small advertising agency in Delhi with slight experience in handling food products was
appointed. However by the time the agency has bee selected and oriented to the marketing programme, the
time remaining before the scheduled introduction did not allow for the preparation of advertisements or
sponsored programmes on TV. In order to break into the consumer market at the time of product introduction
on October 1st a consumer - advertising programme using newspaper, television commercials and radio was
prepared. Except for the product introduction period, however, relatively little thought was given in planning
sessions to the total amount money required to support the product with consumer advertising.
A number of circumstances combined to prevent the introduction in October as originally planned. No one has
taken personal responsibility for package design and production was held up for three weeks while the
company waited for supplies of packaging materials. FSL was forced to move very rapidly to obtain a
package, but the result was neither very well designed nor attractive from a promotional point of view. Time
was short, however, and there was no choice but to use this package or abandon the project for the present
season and possibly altogether, depending upon competitive conditions.
A hastily put together advertising campaign was introduced in November. However, advertising cost had been
gratly under estimated, that the intensity of the campaign was much lower than the manager had anticipated,
even with the limited budget. As a result, most of the budget was allocated to newspapers and radio.
Moreover problem of writing of the script of the TV commercial delayed broadcasting until the beginning of
December. Newspaper advertisements and Radio commercials did commence as planned.
The new product was finally launched in mid December. However, by February, two major competitors began
marketing similar products. Shortly thereafter the company to determine whether the product made a
favourable impression sponsored a market research survey on housewives. The result of the survey was
negative. Only twenty two percent of the housewives interviewed could recall the name and those only twelve
percent had tried the product. Consumer evaluation of the product was for the first time, only four percent
stated that they would but again.
Another indication that worried the company's management was that few major food chains showed interest.
By midyear product sales were so poor that management established a special committee to determine
without delay what immediate steps might be taken to reverse the poor sales record.

PASSAGE – II (QUESTIONS 21 - 30)
Coirfoam, a small company producing foam rubber mattresses, was in financial trouble, and its owners
wanted to sell it. The company had been established some twenty years age, but its market share had
steadily declined over the last five years. Since Mr. Krishnan had no previous experience in the mattress
business, he requested his friend to tell him what he could do about it.
His friend analysed the company's resources. Their best resource was its product and brand name. However,
synthetics are much cheaper than foam rubber mattresses. Latex mattresses are known for their orthopedic
and anti allergic qualities, among others. The Coirfoam brand name had very nearly become a generic term
for all types of rubber mattresses. Coirfoam however was the only latex mattress produced locally.
Apart from a superior product, the company had few resources. Its equipment, though satisfactory, was old. It
operated in leased praises on a year to year basis, although the landlord was willing to conclude a long term
agreement on favourable terms. On the other hand the company's labour force was experienced and
dedicated ad its production manager had more than ten year's experience in lated manufacturing.
The Chairman of the company was seventy years old and wanted to retire. Apart form the sales manager, no
one else shared responsibility for marketing or administration. He told Krishnan's friend that if the company
was sold, he had no intensions of remaining in service, he had eighteen years of experience in mattress
industry. if the sales manager left the company Krishnan might not find a suitable replacement. This was
another issue that Krishnan's friend had to study.
Coirfoam's financial position was precarious. The company was heavily in debt and its line of credit fully
extended. There was some question as to purchase enough latex to keep production going, but the manager
assured, that the company had a bank letter of credit to purchase additional month's supply.
In spite of the chairman's optimism, the fact was that his company had steadily lost market share once the
dominant mattress manufacturers, with fifty percent of local market, its market share had declined to less then
10 per cent. The chairman attributed this decline to popularity gained by spring mattresses manufacturers,
who had only begun production five years ago. Spring mattresses now accounted for seventy percent of the
total market, another company ten percent, with remaining twenty percent shared by a umber of small plants
producing synthetic rubber mattresses. Spring mattresses had some attributes similar to those of foam rubber,
such as orthopaedic qualities. They were less costly to manufacture but sold to customers at about the same
price as Coirfoam.
Because of Coirfoam's financial difficulties, it creased advertising in Newspaper and on radio for over the past
five years. As a result retailers were reluctant to handle the product. In contrast to it two spring manufacturers
had advertised heavily in the mass media. One of these manufacturer's products was sold exclusively by the
largest furniture chain. During his study of the mattress market, a number of retailers had expressed the
opinion to Krishnan's friend that a whole generation of young people largely unaware of the Coirfoam product
because of lack of advertising. One retailer was quoted saying. "It is true that older people remember
Coirfoam, but these mattresses last for twenty years. The big market is not the replacement market, but sales
generated by family formation. Thousands of young couples get married every year and ever marriage means
another mattress sale. It is obviously easier for my salesman to sell a mattress which his customers have
seen in countless advertisements that one which is relatively unknown".
Krishnan's friend was aware of the fact that if Coirfoam was ever to regain some of its lost market share, it
would have to launch a major advertising programme to educate young adults about the important attributes
found in its products. A major question that needed an immediate answer was: "To what extent are people
aware of Coirfoam mattresses and their attributes?" Other questions involved the attitudes of people toward
spring mattresses in general and how these attitudes compared to those towards spring mattresses.
Krishnan's friend ordered a market research survey to obtain answers to his questions. In brief, the study of
Coirfoam mattresses showed that customers over twenty five years of age who were aware of Coirfoam
mattresses had favourable attitudes towards their attributes. About three quarters of these people expressed
a preference for foam rubber mattresses for their children (by contrast with other mattresses for their own
use). Awareness among younger segments of the population of the attributes of foam rubber mattresses in
general and Coirfoam in particular; was very low. Few people expressed an intention to buy foam rubber
mattresses.
On the basis of the preliminary research Krishnan was optimistic that he could turn the company around. In
support of his brief, he sighted the recognition of the company among a significant portion f the population,
and the fact that they would buy a Coirfoam for their children. He believed that once retailers became aware
that new management had taken over the company, they would be willing to stock the product. Krishnan was
aware that the research findings were not always in agreement with his conclusions. However, the findings
that young people were relatively unaware of coirfoam did not seem to worry him. He felt that well designed
advertising programme 2ould convince many people to but y a foam rubber mattresses, rather than any
competing type. Moreover, the introduction of a new management team would instill confidence among
Coirfoam bankers, credit lines would be increased thereby improving the company's financial position.
However, before making a final decision as to whether to purchase Coirfoam, Mr. Krishnan waited for his
friend's final report and recommendations.

SECTION II
READING COMPREHENSION
Direction: This section contains two reading passages. You have to read each carefully. Each passage is
followed by questions based on its content. After reading each passage, choose the best answer to each
question. The questions are based on what is stated or implied in each passage.
PASSAGE – I (QUESTIONS 31 - 40)
Virtually everything astronomers know about objects outside the solar system is based on the detection of
photon quants of electromagnetic radiation. Yet there is another form of radiation that permeates the universe;
neutrinos. With (as its name implies ) no electric charge and negligible mass, the neutrino interacts with other
particles so really that a neutrino can cross the entire universe, even traversing substantial aggregations of
matter, without being absorbed or even detected. Neutron can thus escape from regions of space where light
and other kinds of electromagnetic radiation are blocked by matter. Further more neutrinos carry with them
information about the site and circumstances of their production; therefore, the detection of cosmic neutrinos
could provide new information about the history of the universes carry with them information about the site
and circumstances of their production; therefore, the detection of cosmic neutrinos could provide new
information about the history of the universe.
But how can scientist deduct a particle that interacts so infrequently with the other matter? Twenty five years
passed between Pauli's hypothesis that the neutrino existed and its actual detection; since then virtually all
research with neutrinos has been with neutrinos created artificially in large particle accelerators and studies
under neutrino microscopes. But a neutrino telescope, capable or detecting cosmic neutrinos, is difficult to
construct. No apparatus can deduct neutrinos unless it is extremely massive, because great mass is
synonymous with huge numbers of nucleons (neutrons and protons) and the more massive the detector, the
greater the probability of one of its neutron's reacting with a neutrino in addition, the apparatus must be
sufficiently shielded from the interfering effects of other particles.
Fortunately a group of astrophysicists has proposed a means of deducting cosmic neutrinos by harnessing
the mass of ocean named Dumand, for deep underwater Muon and neutrino detector, the project calls for
placing an array of light sensors at a depth of five kilometers under the ocean surface. The detecting medium
is the sea water itself; when a neutrino interacts with a particle in an atom of sea water, the result is a cascade
of electrically charged particles and a flash of light that can be deducted by the sensors. The five kilometer of
seawater above the sensors will shield them from the interfacing effects of other high energy particles raining
down through the atmosphere
The strongest motivation for the Dumand project is that it will exploit an important source of information about
the universe. The extension of astronomy form visible light to radio waves to X-rays and gamma rays never
failed to lead to the discovery of unusual objects such as radio galaxies, quasars and pulsars. Each of these
discoveries came as a surprise; neutrino astronomy will doubtlessly bring its own share of surprise.
31. Which of the following titles best summarizes the passage as a whole?

PASSAGE –II (QUESTIONS 41 - 45)
It is not easy to write an familiar style. Many people mistake familiar for a vulgar style, and suppose that to
write without affection is to write at random. On the contrary there is nothing that requires more precision and,
if I may so say purity of expression than the style I am speaking of. It utterly rejects not only all unmanning
pomp, but all new, cant phrases and loose, unconnected slipshod allusion. It is not to take first word that
offers, but the best in common use; it is not to throw words together in any combinations we please, but to
follow and avail ourselves of the idiom of the language. To write a genuine, familiar or truly English style to
write as any one would speak in common conversation who had a thorough command over choice of works,
or who discourses with ease, force and perspicuity, setting aside all pedantic and oratorical flourishes. Or, to
give another illustration, to write naturally is the easy thing to give the true accent and inflection to the works
you utter, because you do not attempt to rise above the level of ordinary life and colloquial speech. You do not
assume, indeed, the solemnity of the pulpit. or tone of stage declamation, neither or you at liberty to gabble on
at a venture, without emphasis or discretion, or to resort to vulgar dialect or clownish pronunciation. You must
steer a middle course. You are tied down to a given appropr9iate articulation, which you can do only by
entering into the author's meaning, as you must find the proper words and style to express yourself by fixing
your thoughts on the subject you have to write about any one may write a passage with a propriety and
simplicity is more difficult task. Thus it is easy to affect a pompous style, to use so word twice for the thing you
want to express; it is not so easy to pitch upon that very word that exactly fits in. Out of eight of ten words
common, equally intelligible, with nearly equal pretensions, it is a matter of some nicety and discrimination to
pick out the one the preferable ness of which is scarcely perceptible, but decisive.
41. According to the passage
(a) One should be permitted to speak in any way he wishes to
(b) Getting on stilts' should aid one in speaking more effectively
(c) It is easier to write pompously than simply
(d) The preacher is a model of good speech
(e) A grammatical background is not necessary for good writing.
42. When the writer says “you must steer a middle course", he means that
(a) You should speak neither too loudly nor too softly.
(b) You should speak neither too formally nor too colloquially
(c) You should write as well as speak
(d) You should not come to any definite conclusion about what is proper or not proper in speech.
(e) You should speak neither too fast nor too softly.
43. "Cant Phrases" means
(a) A type of language which is peculiar to a particular class
(b) A sing-song type of speech
(c) Expressions which consistently indicate refusal to do another's bidding
(d) Obscene language
(e) Obsolete expressions
44. The author mentions all of the following important to good speech, except
(a) A good command of English vocabulary
(b) The careful selection of words used
(c) The use of allusions and metaphors
(d) Straight forward and precise delivery
(e) The placing of emphasis on important words and phrases.
