53. Research has shown that air pollutants from fossil fuel use make clouds reflect more of the sun's rays back into space. This leads to an effect known as global dimming whereby less heat and energy reaches the earth. _________ However, it is believed that global dimming caused the droughts in certain parts of the world where millions died, because the northern hemisphere oceans were not warm enough to allow rain formation. Global dimming is also hiding the true power of global warming. By cleaning up global dimming-causing pollutants without tackling greenhouse gas emissions, rapid warming has been observed, and various human health and ecological disasters have resulted, as witnessed during the European heat wave in 2003, which-saw thousands of people die.

(a) This though, does not bring any relief in the problems associated with climate change.

(b) This phenomenon thus is part of the climate change problem.

(c) Scientists thus believe that this phenomenon goes hand in hand with global warming.

(d) At first, it sounds like an ironic saviour to climate change problems.

(e) The answer to all our problems with respect to climate change is definitely here.

54. Next to China, India is the most populated country in the world. _______ Particularly, rush to technical and higher education has increased as the scope for arts and science has become lesser and lesser due to lack of reforms and up gradation in the course structure and materials according to the developments of the world.

55. Analysts and industry pundits forecast that the notebook market, which has been growing faster than the desktop market for the past three years, is expected to overtake the desktop market by the year 2011-12. A fall in prices, large deals from governments and institutions, and, demand from consumers and sectors such as education are expected to help the note-book numbers. According to research agencies, the year 2010-11 saw notebook volumes rise, and for use first time a million plus notebooks were sold in India in a single quarter. The market has grown nearly four times for notebooks. The demand is driven by all sectors and a very buoyant consumer market, which prefers mobile computers. Entry-level notebook prices have dropped below the Rs.25,000 mark; this has helped break the ice with new customers. This drop in notebook prices has been helped by the drop in the prices of the building blocks that make a notebook. It's simple. With notebook volumes growing, the prices of the components are also bound to come down. ______

(a) All this has resulted in a noticeable change in a number of large government tenders for notebooks; which were traditionally for desktops

(b) Because of this the government still prefers desktops to notebooks and has passed tenders for the same.

(c) Thereby making them more expensive.

(d) Thus the forecast for the coming year states that desktops will be the preferred technology choice only for consumers who cannot afford the exorbitantly priced note-books.

(e) Thus notebooks will become obsolete after a decade or so.
