4. What are the basic differences between a national park and a wildlife sanctuary? How do they ensure conservation of wildlife? Discuss.

5. What are the principal causes of coral bleaching. Why we should be concerned about it? Discuss.


  1. Divergence on issues related to IPR, climate change, trade facilitation and global economic governance defy the rhetoric of India and US being “natural allies”. Do you agree? Critically examine the issue in light of the recent developments in Indo-US relations. 
  1. Labour reforms, disinvestment and FDI are being seen as imperative measures to realise the full growth potential of the economy.

  1. ‘The occasion of the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII was used by China to display it’s military might to the world.

Is there any message for India in this regard?
