DIRECTIONS (Q1-10).EACH QUESTION HAS TO BE ANSWERED FROM GIVEN PASSAGE. READING COMPREHENSION (PASSAGE) On 26th NOVEMBER, the airport police caught a youth Sravan kumar tried to smuggle 98 dried bear gall ladders out of the country. They looked like shriveled black mangoes, and no one but the expert could say that the weird looking things came from an animal. Even experts faltered in identifying the species of the animal the gall bladders came from. This was precisely the question turned up during the investigations. Under the Indian wild-life protection act 1972, the Himalayan brown bear figures among these schedules. Thus if the gall bladders came from the Himalayan brown bear as the airport police suspected, the Sravan kumar should have been prosecuted under the law. Actually drugs made from gall bladders are used in Tibetan medicine as cure for various ailments which includes joint aches, rheumatism, cataracts, gall stones, cancer and even as aphrodisiacs. Since these drugs are highly reputed (despite their being actually useless), the intact gall bladders of bears sell in the international markets at phenomenal rates. This has caused poaching of bears and consequent fall of bear population. Sravan kumar understood that he had been caught red-handed. The best way to circumvent the law was to deny that these where bear gall bladders. Consequently he asserted that the gall bladders where taken from pigs and not from bears. Since pig not in protected act- Sravan could go scot free. He banked upon the fact that the gall bladders of large mammals look alike and is extremely difficult to distinguish one from another. In effect question belonged to pigs or to bears. It was at this stage that the airport police asked for my help. Despite common belief forensic science doesn’t cater only on solving murders, killings or assassinations. Forensic science is the application of scientific knowledge to solve any legal dispute. Since here the police did face a legal dilemma, forensic science could come to their rescue. During recent years the law enforcement agencies involved in protecting wildlife are increasingly turning to forensic science to bring culprits to the book. Protected animals are killed because of false beliefs in curative powers of medicines made from their body parts, or because of their valuable fur’s or hides or just because for plain fun. Poaching of elephants for ivory is a common problem. But ivory comes from a number of sources ( as many as fifteen ) and often even the criminals find it convenient to assert that ivory came from valid source. In US for instance trading in ivory is illegal, trading in ivory of now extinct mammoths and mastodons. There is synthetic ivory too which is plastic like material. Whenever smugglers are caught with ivory their standard answer is that ivory is from a mammoth which is completely legal. Forensic science once again comes to the rescue of wildlife officers. It helps in differentiating ivory coming from various sources. Mammoth ivory is usually darker than elephant ivory, since it contains traces of iron which has oxidized over time, but is not always the case. The best way ivory from various sources can be distinguished is by observing what are known as Schreger lines. Ivory is criss – crossed by dentinal tubules, which can be seen under a scanning electron micro – scope (SEM) as straight lines. These tubules where first described by a German research Schreger, after whom these lines are named. Thses schreger lines form a unique pattern in each species. For instance while in elephants, these lines always meet an angle greater than 110 degrees., in mammoths they form a very convenient for differentiating between the ivories of mammoth and elephants. Q1).

Why did Sravan kumar say that gall bladders have been taken out of pigs? i) Because pigs do not figure among the five schedules in the Indian wild-life protection act of 1973. ii) Because he wanted to avoid prosecution iii) Because he did not consider it morally wrong to say so iv) Because he had bribed an forensic scientist to support his statements a) I only b) I & ii only c) I, ii & iii only d) I, ii, iii & iv only Q3).
