Directions (Q. Nos. 1- 5)​​ Read the passages carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives

In September 2011, The Hindustan Times did a study in Delhi and reported that the number of malaria (and dengue) cases at the time were actually thrice as many as revealed by the city authorities.​​ Earlier, in Mumbai, a municipal claim that 145 people died due to malaria in 2010 was exposed a lie after Praja, a city NGO, extracted figures from the municipality itself. Following an RTI petition, Praja revealed 1190 deaths. This seems to be a habit. A paper in the leading UK medical journal The Lancet, published following nationwide interviews undertaken by an international team, reveals that the number of malarial deaths all over India every year may be as high as 205000, which is many times the World Health Organization's figure of about 15000, of the National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme's figure of just around 1000.
