Answer the following questions after reading this passage:

One of the biggest casualties of the Covid-19 pandemic and the resultant lockdown has been institutionalised education. Schools have been shut to prevent the spread of the virus and this has given way to online classrooms, a very new concept in India even for the most sophisticated schools. It is commendable how easily some educational institutions have moved to virtual classrooms, all thanks to tools such as Zoom, Google Hangouts and Microsoft Teams.

But there are some still struggling to get online. The online classes, whatever the enabling technology, is only as good as the teachers and the ability of the students to grasp the new teaching technique. One of the teachers felt students are actually more responsive and active in online classrooms, compared to when they are in physical ones.

This could be because this is a new concept and they are excited to explore it with the teachers. They also don’t get distracted by their classmates, which frequently happens in a regular class. Teachers do find the absence of a blackboard a disadvantage and network connectivity a constant problem.

We miss the clarity that a blackboard gives us, we are kind of making do with the virtual whiteboard on Zoom. Shweta Kawatra, a parent who teaches in a New Delhi school, highlights that many students have not been able to take advantage of the virtual platform because they do not have a suitable device at home or lack a good internet connection.

It has its own share of disadvantages too. Too much screen time can be perilous for health. Prolonged online sessions can be overwhelming and may lead to problems related to vision, body posture and sleep disorder, Kawatra adds.

Answers

1. (a) The passage in no way suggests anything positive about virtual classroom, so A is the statement that cannot be inferred from the passage.

2. (d) Self-explanatory

3. (a) There is a difference of opinion among people about the advantages and disadvantages of virtual classroom.

4. (d)

5. (b) Explanation: The answer can only be (B) because Snehal went to the restaurant on a specific Sunday. On that day, there were only women at the restaurant. It is possible that there will be men on other days, but she concluded that men in Korea do not prefer eating dumplings, which is flawed in itself. It cannot be (A) or (C) because she was observant on that specific Sunday, but her conclusion was wrong, and she miscalculated it.

6. (c) Explanation:The answer can only be (C) because it can only be an opinion that the Indian Censorship Board is biased. Some people might feel that it is biased, and others may not. However, (A), and (B) are facts, and it is undeniable and unambiguous that there have been several policies towards the protection of women at the workplace. The Indian OTT platforms have also released numerous original series. Hence, (A) and (B) do not qualify as opinions, and are only facts.

7. (d) Explanation: The first statement says that the students have started visiting the library more often. The second statement says that the students have started attending online classes. And the third and final statements say that the professors are extremely efficient to cater to the needs of the students. All of the above can be among the reasons why the average GPA of the University has increased despite the less number of professors. Hence, the answer is (D).

8. (c) Explanation: The author can only be said to have contradicted himself. This is because he initially says that people with common cold need not consult a doctor. Later on, he goes on to explain why it might be important to consult a doctor as a common cold might lead to aggravated situations. Hence, the answer can only be (C).
