Directions (Q. 51-65): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it Certain words
a r e given in bold to help you locate them while answering
some of the questions.
If you or your family fall sick in India you have to choose
between going to a private doctor or hospital where you may
have to spend a lot of money and not know if the tests,
referrals and treatment are really necessary; you can go to a

public hospital where you will be competing with a hundred


other patients for a t t e n t i o n ; or y o u can take your
grandmother's advice and risk not treating a disease early
that later turns out to be serious.
An Internet connection can give you access to information
abut your illness in some of the 1,00,000 health websites (like
30% of Internet users in Western countries). You'll find,
unfortunately, that most health websites are Americanorientedthey deal with illnesses that may or may not
commonly exist in India and suggest treatment methods that are
not always available or sometimes inappropriate forus. There
are some Indian health websites but they are mainly aimed at
doctors and the few that offer advice to the lay public seem to
us to be run by one or two doctors and many more entrepreneurs
who have a frankly commercial intent. Most important, however,
is that there is no way by which you can assess whether the
advice you have been given is accurate. Studies done on net
health sites have shown that in many cases the treatment
advised has been incorrect and sometimes dangerous. So much
so that recently national and international bodies such as the
World Health Organisation have been considering kitemarking
health websites for quality.
We decided to start a health website which is relevant to
you the intelligent Indian patient, which provides information that is accurate, comprehensive and of an international
quality. We don't wish to supplant the traditional health providers like the general practitionef or the hospital doctor. Our
aim is to help patients by empowering them with knowledge
to better understand what their diagnosis means, why certain tests are necessary, how certain drugs or operations
might help and what the likely outcome might be.
51. Which of the following problems do the patients in India have to face when they approach private doctor or
hospital for treatment?
(i) It is expensive.

53. What is the problem with American-oriented health
websites in the context of Indian patients?

are found in America.
2) The treatment methods suggested in these websites
are mostly inappropriate in the Indian context.
3) They are meant only for doctors.
4) They have a limited network.
5) None of these
54. Why do the Indian health websites not satisfy the needs

of the Indian patients?


1) because most of the patients are lay public who
cannot understand the information
2) because most of them provide information to the doctors only and some are run for commercial motives

websites

Indians are now moving faster towards value-added rich
diet. From consuming cereals in large quantities in the past,
Indians, over the next two decades, would move towards
milk and milk products in large quantities followed by fruits,
vegetables, meat and fish. India now ranks as the world's
largest milk-producing country followed by US and Russia.
Moreover, milk has been a part of the traditional Indian diet.
In the last 28 years, Indians have already touched the WTO
norms of daily milk consumption of220 gms of milk per person from 111 gms in 1973. Consumption of cereals has been
declining across several states in India barring Kerala, West
Bengal and Orissa. The consumption of non-cereal food such
as milk, eggs, meat, fruits and vegetables has been highest in
