COP26: A Quick Quiz with GK Tips for CLAT 2022

3 minutes read

Hello and welcome back to the CLATalogue GK Series! Ah, close to 5 months to go for the D-day and we can only imagine that the pressure is on!

For today’s article, we’re doing a quick check-in quiz! We’ll be picking up the topic of COP 26 and we’re primarily running through some important questions for your exam. Let us know how well you did in the comments below!

(P.S: we will only be quizzing you on the topics covered in the CLATalogue GK Series, so if you haven’t read our snippets, we recommend that you revise them first.)

1. Which of the following organisations, released a report titled ‘Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C’?

a. The United Nations Environment Programme
b. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
c. Clean Edge
d. Pacific Research Institute

(The correct answer is option B, or the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. This report published in 2018, summarised evidence on how a 1.5°C world would look like compared to a 2°C.

You may be wondering the relevance of this question to the COP. This is important because the COP held in Paris in 2015 where nearly 200 countries signed a treaty that bound them to do whatever they could to keep global temperatures from rising beyond 2°C by the end of the century and “pursue all efforts” to keep it at 1.5°C.

The difference in half a degree is significant. Further, COP26 concluded in Glasgow with nearly 200 countries agreeing the Glasgow Climate Pact to keep 1.5C alive and finalise the outstanding elements of the Paris Agreement.)

CLATalogue Tip: Always ask yourself in the beginning of your preparation why a certain question is being asked, this will eventually help you figure out potential questions as you’re reading editorials, magazines or other material

Let’s analyse: It’s okay if you got this question wrong, it was not an easy one. It is recommended that you go back and read the basics of the report.

2. Which of the following presided over COP26?

a. Kristy Blackman
b. Mohammad Yaseen
c. Alok Sharma
d. Naseem Shah

(The correct answer is Option C: Alok Sharma. He was previously Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and President for COP 26 between 13 February 2020 and 8 January 2021.)

Let’s Analyse: This was an easy question, if you got this question wrong, we recommend that you revise learning about the COP26 and read some editorials to supplement your knowledge as well.

This is a pertinent question, especially considering that the president is of Indian origin.

3. Which of the following were limitations of the conclusions at COP26?

a. Lack of climate finance
b. Skewed distribution of the climate budget
c. Setting of voluntary targets
d. All of the above

(The correct answer is option D, all of the above)

Let’s Analyse: We would call this a moderate question, if you got this question wrong, you’ve been introduced to one of the trickiest yet most predictable GK questions.

This question aims to test your overall understanding of the topic and also requires an in depth knowledge. To crack such questions it’s always a good idea to skim through some UPSC related material in your free time.

The lucky answer to such questions, is more often than not Option D, but unless you’re sure that none of the options can be eliminated, we recommend not marking it.

So, how did you fare?
