Before formulating the laws of motion, Galileo distinguished between mathematical study and empirical study. He, first, theoretically derived the relation between distances and times for uniformly accelerating motion by letting the ball roll a quarter, then half, then two thirds and so on of the length of the groove and then measured the times on each occasion, which he repeated hundred times. He calculated, based on this study, that the distance travelled equaled the square of the time on all occasions.

Which one of the following characterizes Galileo's method?


An efficient and diesel-independent public transport system is essential to the economic development of nation. Suppose that the government adopts a policy to that effect then there is another favourable result. The pollution of environment is reduced to a greater extent. But, then it has two-pronged backlash. The sale and consequently the production of two and four wheelers reduce to the minimum which in turn render a large number of people jobless. Cash flow to the treasury, also is adversely affected. Such a step, therefore, is self-defeating unless the government evolves a counter-strategy to nullify the adverse effects.

Violence against racial and religious minority groups increased sharply throughout the country last year, despite a slight decline in statewide figures. Compiling incidents from police departments and private watchdog groups, the County  Human Relations Committee reported almost 500 hate crimes in the year, up from only 200 last year. It was the first increase since the committee began to report a yearly figure six years ago. The lower Statewide figures are Probably in error due to under-reporting in other countries; under-reporting is the major problem that state surveyors face each year.  All of the following, if true, would support the conclusion  or the explanation of the discrepancy in the state and county figures EXCEPT:


A number of law suits have been brought against popular singing groups charging that suicidal themes in their songs have led to teenage suicides. So far, the courts have found that the lyrics are protected under the Constitution. But what if this should change and a court decides that suicidal themes in popular songs are dangerous? In fact, the songs that have been charged so far are anti-suicide; they present sardonically the self-destructive behaviour of drinking,  drugs, and escape by death. They describe a pitiful state of mind, but they do not endorse it.  Blaming suicide on the arts is nothing new. In the late eighteenth century, Goethe’s popular novel The Sorrows of  Young Werther was said to be the cause of a rash of suicides in imitation of the novel’s hero. If we begin to hold suicide in books or music responsible for suicides in real life the operas of Verdi and Puccini will have to go, and Romeo and  Juliet and Julius Caesar will disappear from the high school reading lists.  Which one of the following is an assumption necessary to the author's argument?

In fact, fodder should be mobilized from all sources and cattle sheds should be opened wherever needed, Employment affirmation program should be launched with central assistance. If possible, interest on loans taken by farmers should be waived besides converting the short-term loans into long-term ones, It is necessary to work out a way to take over the loans taken from primitive money lenders or reschedule them. Coming to long-term steps, the AXI paper says new water resources be explored besides building water supply projects and creating rainwater storage facilities. Dryland cultivation ought to be promoted apart from popularizing water-saving irrigation technologies.

We should work out a long-term and permanent strategy to tackle frequent drought situations.
