Answer the Question no. 1 to 4 based on the statement given below:
Statement: The Lok Sabha passed the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code(Second Amendment)
Bill, 2018 that recognises homebuyers as financial creditors to real estate developers. The bill
also proposes a special dispensation for small sector enterprises. The IBC Amendment Bill now
requires clearance from Rajya Sabba to replace the earlier ordinance that sought to put these
amendments into force to aid quick resolution of several bankrupt firms.
Moving the bill in Lok Sabha, interim finance minister Piyush Goyal said, “We want to address
concerns expressed by the MSME sector and homebuyers. We have learnt from two years of
implementation of IBC, and through the amendments, we want to strengthen IBC Bill.” The
minister also said that the objective of the bill was not to liquidate the companies but to save
jobs in those companies.
“After years of lethargy in recovering bank loans, finally we now have a new law — the
Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016, which has started bringing big bank defaulters to the
book and made banks recover loans from them,” the minister tweeted. Goyal also rejected
Opposition’s charge that the government has come out with an ordinance to amend the code
to favour a big corporate house.
The bill says that homebuyers will get due representation in the committee of creditors (CoC)
that takes a call on resolution proposals, making them an integral part of the decision making
process. It also provides some reliefs for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs). It does
not disqualify promoter of an MSME firm from bidding for his enterprise undergoing corporate
insolvency resolution process (CIRP), provided he is not a wilful defaulter and does not attract
other disqualifications not related to default.

Answer the Question no. 5 to 7 based on the statement given below:
Statement: The global economic meltdown of 2008, triggered by the Lehman Brothers’
collapse, set alarm bells ringing for financial institutions. The Basel III accord is designed to
mitigate such risks by making the banking sector stronger and more efficient. The norms call for
improvement of the quantity and quality of capital of banks, stronger supervision, more
stringent risk management and disclosure standards.
As per the Reserve Bank of India’s direction, the Basel III capital regulation is being
implemented from April 1, 2013, in India in phases, and will be fully adopted by March 31,
As of now, Indian banks fare well on compliance with the capital norms, with an average capital
adequacy of 13.3% as of March 2017. The continued stressed scenario of the industry is likely to
bring this down by a further 2 percentage points by March 2018. However, many of India’s
banks, especially PSBs, are under-prepared to meet the stipulated deadline for total
compliance. Macroeconomic headwinds as well as underlying infrastructural issues have
necessitated strong actions and stricter discipline by the banks.

Answer the Question no. 8 to 10 based on the statement given below:
Statement: In a bid to give a leg-up to priority sector lending, the Reserve Bank of India said
that all scheduled commercial banks will be allowed to co-originate loans with Non-Banking
Financial Companies (NBFCs) for creating eligible priority sector assets.
The central bank, however, has excluded regional rural banks (RRBs) and small finance banks
(SFBs) from co-origination as most of the loans they originate are priority sector loans. Further,
only NBFCs classified as Non-Deposit Taking- Systemically Important can get into co-origination
arrangements with scheduled commercial banks.
Priority sector loans include loans given to the agriculture sector (farm credit, agriculture
infrastructure and ancillary activities), micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), export
credit, education, housing, social infrastructure, and renewable energy, among others.
The RBI said the co-origination arrangement should entail joint contribution of credit by both
lenders at the facility-level. It should also involve sharing of risks and rewards between the
banks and the NBFCs for ensuring appropriate alignment of respective business objectives as
per their mutual agreement.
In its ‘Statement on Developmental and Regulatory Policies’, which was issued along with the
third bi-monthly monetary policy statement, the RBI said the guidelines on co-origination of
priority sector loans would be issued by the end of September 2018.

Statement: According to J. Batty “the term accounting ratio is used to describe significant
relationships between figures shown on a Balance Sheet, in a Profit and Loss Account, in a
Budgetary Control System or in any part of the accounting organisation.” In simple words, it is
an assessment of significance of any figure in relation to another.
The accounting ratios indicate a quantitative relationship which is used for analysis and
decision-making. It provides basis for inter-firm as well as intra-firm comparisons. Besides, in
order to make the ratios effective, they are compared with ratios of base period or with
standards or with the industry average ratios.
Different kinds of ratios are selected for different types of situations:
Balance Sheet Ratios: These ratios are also known as financial ratios. These ratios deal with
relationship between two items or group of items which are both available in Balance sheet.
Examples of these ratios are: Current ratio, Liquid ratio, Debt-Equity ratio, Capital bearing ratio,
Proprietary ratio, etc.
Profit and Loss Account Ratios: These ratios deal with the relationship between two items or
group of items which are usually taken out from the profit and loss account.

Answer the Question no. 15 to 19 based on the statement given below:
Statement: While a great deal has been said about international differences in leadership styles
and their effectiveness, another issue probably matters more for most organizations: How can
we develop leaders who are effective across cultural boundaries? Is it possible to create a truly
global leadership style that will extend across cultures? Some recent forays into the field of
cross-cultural leadership highlight possibilities for how global organizations might proceed.
Some of the leadership styles we have described in this chapter do seem to generalize across
cultures. For example, research suggests charismatic leadership is effective in a variety of
national contexts. In many cultures, terms like visionary, symbolizer, and self-sacrificer appear
as descriptors of effective leaders, and positive leader– member exchanges also are associated
with high performance across a variety of cultures. Culturally intelligent leaders are flexible and
adaptable, tailoring their leadership styles to the specific and changing needs of the global
workforce. Researchers agree that learning to be a global leader requires gaining active
experience in dealing with multiple cultures simultaneously. These experiences give leaders a
chance to observe how different leadership styles work with different groups of people and
build confidence in working across cultural boundaries.

Statement: Work Specialization is the degree to which tasks in an organization are divided into
separate jobs. In some companies or organizations this is also referred to as division of labor.
Work specialization is something that helps companies become more efficient, and productive.
It is always important for a company’s productivity to go up and or stay stable. An example of
where work specialization may be used to help productivity and efficiency would possibly be in
a shop, or an assembly line setting. One of the first businessmen to implement this idea of work
specialization in a blue collar fashion was Henry Ford. He believed the assembly line was
beneficial to his company and indeed it was. The assembly line focused on workers only
