Directions (1-5) Read the following passage carefully and
India is still a cash economy but if anything managed to chip
away at that, even if just slightly, it has been the rapidly
innovating digital wallets industry. Startups including Paytm,
Oxigen Services and Mobikwik helped the Indian economy
take baby steps towards digitisation, handholding and enticing
customers with cashbacks and discounts to make the
transition from cash to digital.
On February 28, that Rs 12,000-crore digital wallets industry
got stranded unable to meet a Reserve Bank of India deadline
for collecting information on all customers. In effect,
customers who haven’t furnished all the information required
under RBI’s full know-your-customer norms will not be able to
use their digital wallets (except to use up whatever money
remains in their wallets).
Collecting all that information, including biometric details, is
cumbersome and so far digital wallet providers have managed
to gather full KYC details for fewer than 10% of their
customers. In other
words,………………………………(A)……………………………….. In the
tightly regulated world of banking and finance, mobile wallets
brought in a whiff of fresh air. As the first segment of financial

working at the mines, if necessary.
They tossed a coin on a Sunday morning after church.
Albrecht Durer, one of the brothers won the toss and went off
to Nuremberg. Albert, the other brother went to work at the
mines and for the next four years, financed his brother, whose

of savings vehicles that provide different returns. The simplest
savings vehicle to consider is buying certificates of deposit

'Destitution' means poverty so extreme that one lacks the
means to provide for oneself.

Solution:
The correct rearrangement is DAECB
Tamil Nadu was more prepared than before to deal with
Cyclone Gaja when it made landfall between
Nagapattinam and Vedaranyam on November 16, but it
still took a toll of at least 45 lives. The severe cyclonic
storm damaged infrastructure, property and agriculture.
Even so, the effort to professionalise disaster
management through a dedicated national and State
organisation initiated more than 15 years ago appears to
be paying off, with bureaucracies acquiring higher
efficiency in providing early warning and in mitigating
the impact of cyclones. The National Cyclone Risk
Mitigation Project started by the Ministry of Home
Affairs has been working to reduce the impact of such
catastrophic events on Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, West
Bengal, Tamil Nadu and Gujarat, classified as States with
higher vulnerability; most western coastal States are in
the next category. However, there is a lot to be done to
upgrade infrastructure and housing in coastal districts to
meet higher standards of resilience in an era of extreme
weather events.

In this modern day and age, the negative effects of
stress are unavoidable. People have tried various
methods to help cope with stress, everything from
exercise and diet to alternative methods like
biofeedback. However, the most effective method to
deal with stress is not one of these modern methods but
rather a 5,000 year-old idea: Meditation. Meditation not
only helps reduce the negative effects of stress, but also
leads to a better sense of well-being by uniting mind and
body. Meditation allows us to step outside the situation,
seeing ourselves as the observer rather than the victim,
and opens us up to other points of view.
