Re: MAT Exam Previous papers

As per your request here I am sharing the Previous year question paper of MAT Exam

Direction Directions s (Qs. 1 to 5) : Read the
passage given below carefully and then
answer these questions based on what
is stated or implied in the passage.
Anxiety and conscience are a pair of
powerful dynamos. Of course, I can only
speak for myself. Between them, they
have ensured that one shall work hard,
but they cannot ensure that one shall
work at anything worthwhile. They are
blind forces which drive but do not
direct. Fortunately, I have also been
moved by a third motive—the wish to
see and understand. Curiosity is another
motive for action. It is also one of the
distinctive characteristics of human
nature and contrasted with the natures
of non-human animals. All human beings
have curiosity in some degree and we
also all have it about things which are
of no practical use.
Curiosity may be focussed on anything
in the universe, but the spiritual reality
of the phenomena should be the ultimate
objective of all curiosity for it to be
fruitful. Thanks to my mother my
approach to this ultimate objective is
through the story of human affairs.

1. What is the main objective of this
passage ?
(1) Distinguish between human beings
and animals
(2) Project curiosity as a potent
motivating factor
(3) Project anxiety and conscience as
inadequate motivators
(4) Motivation and spiritual reality
2. A characteristic peculiar to human
beings that is referred to is
(1) Superior intelligence
(2) Spirit of enquiry
(3) Capacity to rationalise and
analyse
(4) Ability to sift the practical from
the impractical
3. Which of the following statements
is true according to the passage ?
(1) Animals are as curious as human
beings
(2) Curiosity is the only motive for
action
(3) People motivated by curiosity do
not need other motives to guide
them
(4) People motivated by anxiety and
conscience alone can be
misdirected

4. According to the author
(1) Those who have little curiosity are
curious about unimportant things
(2) Apart from humans no other living
beings have the gift of curiosity
(3) The highest form of curiosity can
be satisfied by study of human
affairs alone.
(4) Spiritual reality is the ultimate goal
of humans through action
5. The author subscribes to the view
(1) One’s curiosity should focus beyond
the facade on the latent meaning of
things
(2) Curiosity is an inherited family
characteristic
(3) A study of human affairs is the
most effective method of satisfying
one’s curiosity
(4) In order to motivate, curiosity must
be coupled with anxiety and
conscience

Directions (Qs. 6 to 10) : Read the
passage given below and then answer
these questions which are based on what
is stated or implied in the passage.
Soft-bodied animals like caterpillars
often fall a prey to voracious hunters like
birds or reptiles. Despite having no means
to ‘actively’ defend themselves, with
weapons like claws or jaws, they have,
nevertheless, evolved other equally
effective deterrents. A particular species
of the caterpillar lives at an altitude of
over 2,500 metres in the Himalayas. It
uses prominent colours to inform wouldbe
predators of its inedibility. In the event
that an inexperienced or adventurous
bird did eat the caterpillar, it would
probably vomit it out soon after, and
subsequently desist from attacking similar
species in the future. Though this would
do the unfortunate victim no good, the
species benefits. A rare example of the
martyr among animals.
6. Caterpillars cannot defend
themselves because they
(1) Are passive animals
(2) Are lazy
(3) Cannot acquire weapons
(4) Have no claws or jaws
7. The expression ‘other equally
effective deterrents’ means
(1) Preventive weapons which have
equal effect on others
(2) Mechanism which scares everyone
equally well
(3) Preventive equipment which is as
effective as something that has
been already mentioned
(4) Deterrents that are as powerful as
those the caterpillars have.
8. The Himalayan caterpillar uses
prominent colours to
(1) Warn the predator
(2) Attack the predator
(3) Reveal itself
(4) Defend itself
9. Experienced birds do not attack
the Himalayan caterpillar because they
are
(1) Repulsive (2) Inedible
(3) Aggressive (4) Diseased
10. In the context of the passage, a
martyr is one who dies
(1) Without putting up resistance
(2) Without any gain to oneself
(3) While defending one’s homeland
(4) To save others
