7) What stands in the way of the widespread and careful adoption of 'Genetic Modification (GM)' technology is an `Intellectual Property Rights' regime that seeks to create private monopolies for such technologies. If GM technology is largely corporate driven, it seeks to maximize profits and that too in the short run. That is why corporations make major investments for herbicide-tolerant and pest-resistant crops. Such properties have only a short window, as soon enough, pests and weeds will evolve to overcome such resistance. This suits the corporations. The National Farmers Commission pointed out that priority must be given in genetic modification to the incorporation of genes that can help impart resistance to drought, salinity and other stresses. Which one of the following is the most logical, rational and crucial message conveyed by the above passage?
Public research institutions should take the lead in GM technology and prioritise the technology agenda.
Developing countries should raise this issue in WTO and ensure the abolition of Intellectual Property Rights.
Present Indian circumstances do not favour the cultivation of genetically modified crops.
Private corporations should not be allowed to do agribusiness in India, particularly the seed business.

North America will suffer more intense droughts, and crop diseases will spread to new latitudes. 33. Which of the following is the most logical, rational and crucial message given by the passage?

Our cities are increasingly intolerant,', unsafe and unlivable places for large numbers of citizens and yet we continue to plan via the old ways — the static Development Plan — that draws exclusively from technical expertise, distanced from people's live experiences and needs, and actively excluding large number of people, places, activities and practices that are an integral part of the city.
