Ans: A pressure group is a group of people who come together on a platform to influence the policies of the government. They share political, social and economic interests and aim at achieving the same political goal. Pressure groups play a very important role in a democracy. A democratic government has to look after the aspirations of the people belonging to each and every section of the society. Thus if a pressure group represent the interest of one particular community in an unjustified way, then it may pose danger to the democracy. For example, if a small community of businessmen and industrialists exert pressure on the government to pass a certain law which may harm the interests of workers and consumer, then the democratic structure of the country may suffer, However, it is also to be noticed that it is not possible for a small section of people to exert influence on the government every time. In a second scenario, if a pressure group represents the interests of a neglected section of society and organizes a movement to restore their rights and powers, it strengthens the forces of democracy. Therefore, we can say that the above statement may be correct and incorrect depending upon the interests of the group that is represented by the pressure groups.

Ans: The Bolivian war was fought over the control of water resources. Many people belonging to different professional, academic, social and economic backgrounds came out together to protest against the water woes of the country. This war reflects that pressure groups can influence the decisions of the government by directly participating in politics. This can be done by mobilizing people, generating public opinion and contesting public elections. But not every pressure group can contest elections. Under this scenario, activities may be undertaken by the interest or the pressure group to promote their views or the opinions. This war also tells us that no organization can take away the right of people on using essential commodities. If this happens, then people may organise themselves and can lead a movement from the front.

Ans: SPA was an alliance of seven parties that came together to protest against the discontinuation of democratic rule in Nepal by a monarch. SPA wanted to establish a democratic rule in Nepal. The members of SPA were mainly political workers across Nepal. FEDECOR was an organization formed in Bolivia which wanted the government to end the privatization of water resources in the country. This organization consisted of the environmentalists, academicians, engineers etc. unlike SPA which was an alliance of the political parties in Nepal. However, FEDECOR had the backing and support of the Socialist Party of Bolivia.

Ans: Rabies is a viral disease that causes acute inflammation of the brain in humans and other warm blooded animals. Rabies is mostly transmitted to humans and between animals through the saliva of infected animals. Transmission is generally through a bite from any infected animal. After a typical human infection by the bite of a dog, the virus enters the peripheral nervous system. It then travels along the nerves towards the central nervous system. Once the virus reaches the brain, it rapidly causes encephalitis and symptoms appear. Rabies may also inflame the spinal cord producing myelitis.

Ans: The nth term is the general term of a series. a n  stands for nth term of the series. 'N' stands for the no. of terms. For eg: Suppose for a series:1,4,7,10,........ Here (first term)a=1,(common difference)d=3 The general term / nth term of this series is t n  =a+(n-1)d =1+(n-1)3 =1+3n-3 =3n-2 This term t n  denotes the general term of the series. If you put n=3, in this term you get t 3  = 3×3-2=7, which is the third term in the series. The same principle applies to any series. Hope your doubt is cleared.
