English Quiz for Bank Exams 2015 – Set 33

Hello and welcome to ExamPundit. Here is a set of English Quiz for Bank Exams 2015.

Directions (Q. No.
1-6): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below
it. Certain words have been printed in bold to help you locate them while
answering some of the questions.
It is easy for the government to control state owned companies through
nods and winks. So, what really needs to be done as a first step is to put
petrol pricing on a transparent
formula. If the price of crude is x and the exchange rate y, than every month
or fortnight, the government announces a maximum
price of petrol, which anybody can work out from the x and the y. The rule has
to be worked out to make sure that the oil marketing companies can, in general,
cover their costs. This will mean that if one company can innovate and cut
costs, it will make greater profits. Hence, firms will be more prone to
innovate and will be more efficient under this system. Once the rule is
announced there should be no interference
by the government. If, this is done for a while, private companies will reenter
this market. And once a sufficient number of them are in fray, we can remove the rule based pricing and leave it truly to
the market.
