Directions : For the Question Nos. 20-23, read the following passage and mark the correct answer for the questions given below in your answer sheet. Traditional body signage seems largely to have disappeared. Well, many of the old symbols and names are still around, of course, but they are part of the commercial range of options. Seeing someone in a Harvard or Oxford sweatshirt or a kilt or a military tie now communicates nothing at all significant about that person’s life other than the personal choice of a particular consumer. Religious signs are still evocative, to be sure, but are far less common than they used to be. Why should this be ? I suspect one reason may be that we have lost a sense of significant connection to the various things indicated by such signs. Proclaiming our high school or university or our athletic team or our community has a much lower priority now-a-days, in part because we live such rapidly changing lives in a society marked by constant motion that the stability essential to confer significance on such signs has largely gone. But we still must attach ourselves to something. Lacking the conviction that the traditional things matter, we turn to the last resort of the modern world : the market. Here there is a vast array of options, all equally meaningless in terms of traditional values, all equally important in identifying the one thing left to us for declaring our identity publicly, our fashion sense and disposable income. The market naturally manipulates the labels, making sure we keep purchasing what will most quickly declare us excellent consumers. If this year a Chicago Bulls jacket or Air Jordan shoes are so popular that we are prepared to spend our way into a trendy identity, then next year there will be something else.

20. The main purpose of the passage is to
 (1) Discuss basketball’s importance in today’s fashions
 (2) Relate the tribal history of tattoos
 (3) Help the reader discover his or her own true identity
 (4) Discuss commercialism’s powerful influence upon personal identity

Answer:  (4) Discuss commercialism’s powerful influence upon personal identity

21. What does the author mean by the commercial range of options ?
 (1) The variety of commercials on television and radio
 (2) The numerous products available to today’s consumer
 (3) The ability to shop on the Internet
 (4) Technology’s impact upon the world
Answer:  (2) The numerous products available to today’s consumer

22. The author would agree with all the following statements EXCEPT :
 (1) A person wearing a New York Yankees baseball hat is not necessarily a fan of the team or a resident of New York.
 (2) Pride in our school or community is not as strong today as it was years ago.
 (3) In today’s society, being trendy is more important than keeping tradition.
 (4) You can tell a lot about somebody by what they are wearing.
Answer:  (4) You can tell a lot about somebody by what they are wearing.

Directions : For Question Nos. 24-26, read the following passage and mark the correct answer for the questions given below in your answer sheet. Competencies are probably most closely related to abilities. However, in our craft, the term ability normally means either able to do or a special talent; while competencies relate more to expertise and experience. Competencies can be thought of as the state or quality of being well qualified to perform a task. A person gains a competency through education, training, experience, or natural abilities. While there are many definitions of competency, most of them have two common elements : that competency is an observable and measurable knowledge, and that the knowledge and skills must distinguish between superior performers and other performers. Since, its initial conception, attitudes, traits or personalities have also played a major role in competencies, even though they are not normally thought of as being observable and measurable.
