Direction for questions 12, 13, 14 and 15: Given below is a short passage. Read the passage carefully. The passage is accompanied by a set of questions based on the passage or grammar. Answer the question according to what is stated or implied in the passage.

According to the latest annual report released by Ministry of Labour and Employment, our current unemployment rate is 9.4 percent. Unemployment is higher in rural areas than in urban areas - 10.1 percent versus 7.3 percent. These numbers have increased from the previous year and perhaps supply evidence that our economy, buffeted by the twin forces of global weakness in demand and government paralysis, is slowing down. But what exactly do these numbers mean? And how reliable are they?

The meaning depends on how unemployment and related terms are defined. As these definitions change, or are interpreted differently, population and unemployment statistics also change. Unemployment rates may rise or fall merely because of a change in definition, rather than because of actual changes in the labour market.

Reliability is affected by the coverage of the survey, sampling techniques, the training and experience of the surveyors and the categorization of surveyed individuals by employment status. Going through the definition of unemployment as listed in the ministry report, it struck me that the definition was rather non-specific: the unemployment rate is the ratio between those out of work but looking for a job and those in the labour force, which is the sum of the employed and the unemployed-seeking-work.

12) The main idea of the passage is:

A) The alarming statistics of increased unemployment

B) The report released by the government cannot be relied on

C) If the definition of unemployment is changed, the survey can be accurately conducted D) There are many ways of defining unemployment

13) According to the definition , the unemployment rate:

A) Ratio between those looking for job and employed population B) Cannot be deduced

C) Ratio between the unemployed and the employed D) Does not includes employed population

14) In the statement " As these definitions change, or are interpreted differently, population and unemployment statistics also change" the underlined part can be re-written as:

A) When these definitions change, or are interpreted differently B) Since these definitions change or are interpreted differently

C) The sooner these definitions change, and are interpreted differently D) While these definitions change, or are interpreted differently

(13)

15) The word "buffeted" in the passage refers to: A) Interrupted

B) Stricken C) Grinded D) Assisted

(14)
