Following is a set of NMAT Sample Paper with different types of questions asked in the NMAT Papers. Let’s have a look-


Directions for questions 1 – 7: Read the passage and answer the following questions.

Though the last twenty-five years have seen China dazzle the world with its excellent economic performance it has shied away from playing the kind of active role in international affairs that would seen commensurate with its economic weight. This is because traditionally China’s politics have been defined by the need for economic development above all else. In the past China’s authorities have tended to downplay the country’s international clout, choosing to stress instead its development country status and limited military capabilities. Such modest rhetoric was intended to allay the fears that China’s rise was causing across its immediate neighborhood. That Beijing is finally acknowledging its status as a major player in the international system is evidenced by the fact

that the president has formally development a theory of international relations; the concept of harmonious world. The concept, encompassing broad notions of multilateralism, prosperity for all through common development and tolerance for diversity has left world opinion perplexed. These are commendable objectives but the theory is short on specifics regarding the means to achieve them.

China’s recent willingness to be a more active player internationally stems from complex factors. The country’s economic strength – having acquired the largest foreign exchange reserves in the world – is undeniable and reports favour it to be the largest economy in the next quarter of a century. For sustained double digit economic digit economic growth China thus has no choice but to become more active internationally. Moreover as a major proportion of the oil and other natural resources that China needs to feed its growing economy are imported Beijing has to aggressively woo the countries rich in energy resources, which also represent emerging markets for Chinese products. To ensure a stable security environment within the region and thus facilitate economic growth China played an active role in facilitating negotiations with North Korea. Destabilization of a potential flashpoint like the Korean peninsula would lead to a flood of refugees crossing the border, interrupting careful plans economic rejuvenation of China’s North – East. China’s growing influence has caused a shift in the geopolitical status quo and its influence is beginning to replace that of the United States and European powers in Africa. China‘s new diplomacy though has had its share of critics who have expressed their unease at China’s military modernization programme and its willingness to deal with regimes widely condemned as corrupt and oppressive. Despite this when the Africa was in need of aid and infrastructure or the US needed help in negotiating with Korea they turned to China. By taking a lead in a variety of international and regional forums, initiating bilateral and military exchange and dispensing aid and  technical assistance in parts of the world where traditional powers are cautious to tread China has  signaled that its days of sitting on the sidelines content to let other shape world affairs are emphatically over.

The other day we heard someone smilingly refer to poets as dreamers. Now, it is accurate to refer to poets as dreamers, but is not discerning to infer, as this person did, that the dreams of poets have no practical value beyond the realm of literary diversion. The truth is that poets are just as practical as people who build bridges or look into microscopes and just as close to reality and truth. Where they differ from the logician and the scientist is in the temporal sense alone; they are ahead of their time, whereas logicians and scientists are abreast of their time. We must not be so superficial that we fail to discern the practicable ness of dreams. Dreams are the sunrise streamers heralding a new day of scientific progress, another forward surge. Every forward step man takes, in any field of life, is first taken along the dreamy paths of imagination. Robert Fulton did not discover his steamboat with full steam up, straining at some Hudson River dock ; first he dreamed the steamboat, he and other dreamers, and then scientific wisdom converted a picture in the mind into a reality of steel and wood. The automobile was not dug out of the ground like a nugget to gold; first men dreamed the automobile, and afterward, long afterward, the practical minded engineers caught up with what had been created by winging fantasy. He who looks deeply and with a seeing eye into poetry of yesterday finds there all the cold scientific magic of today and much which we shall not enjoy until some tomorrow. If the poet does not dream so clearly that blueprints of his vision can immediately be drawn and the practical conversions immediately effected, he must not for that reason be described as merely the mental host for a sort of harmless madness. For the poet, like an engineer, is a specialist. His being, turned to the life of tomorrow, cannot be turned simultaneously to the life of today. To the scientist he says, “Here, I give you a flash of the future”. The wise scientist thanks him, and takes that flash of the future and makes it over into a fiber of today.


8. The author’s attitude towards poets differs from that of the general public in that:

(A) most people have a patronizing attitude while the author is in awe of poets

(B) most people take poets to be impractical dreamers the author has a great deal of faith in those dreams

(C) contrary to popular belief the author looks upon poets as chimerical visionaries

(D) he holds them in high esteem

9. From the para one can safely conclude that:

(A) Poets inspire scientific research

(B) Without imagination there would be no progress

(C) The greatest achievements of today were once fanciful dreams of some people

(D) Poets live in the intangible future

10. Which of the following statements is least erroneous?

(A) The poet has more faith in the future than all the scientists and artists

(B) The author lays more faith in the poets than most of us

(C) All progress would stop if poetry turned realistic

(D) None of the above

11. What is common to both Poets & Scientists?

(A) Both can change impossible to possible

(B) They live in a world of their own

(C) They are cut-off from reality

(D) Both dare to dream the seemingly impossible



In a country like India, both poverty and economic growth pose serious environmental challenges. In their desperate  attempt to survive today, people are forced to forsake their tomorrow and their environment. A classic example of the phenomenon can be found in impoverished tribal areas where millions of households are forced to cut forests everyday and sell wood to get at best, half-a meal a day. And all this does not come cheaply in terms of personal costs, as some people often tend to argue. Tribal women wake up before dawn, walk miles to the dwindling forests to cut and bundle wood and then carry the load tens of kilometers to a nearby town. And after all that, what they get is pittance.

At the same time uncontrolled economic growth, urbanization and industrialization can rip apart forests, mine the overuse ground water systems, dam rivers, pollute water and air, stuff the land with unknown poisons. In this way, economic growth not just poisons and destroys cities, but also erodes the rural resource base, setting in motion a vicious cycle. Rural ecosystems unable to support their growing populations push more and more people into the cities.

There is therefore, a golden mean, a balance, as in all things ecological between poverty and wealth, between need and greed. This is an area for values, education, culture, social aspirations, human satisfaction-especially amongst those who have them in sufficient measure- in things other than what economists call goods.

The new economic policies of the Government built around certain concepts of economic liberalization and structural adjustment have raised numerous questions in the minds of the environmentally – concerned. One set of critics believes that these policies will enhance impoverishment. Apart from being bad in themselves, the policies will have a negative environmental impact.

There is another set which believes that these policies will enhance entrepreneurship and processes of wealth generation and thus reduce poverty. But this set too does not know how these processes will be controlled to ensure a good and clean environment.

If the government could not give the country a good economic governance and hence its role must be curtailed, then what is the guarantee that the same corrupt, inefficient, partisan and soft government, will give us good environmental governance, where the trade-offs, especially in a poor country like India, are even more difficult to assess and understand?

There is of course, another set of concerns which is as follows: even if the new policies generate wealth, will this wealth not be built on borrowed consumption patterns from industrialized countries? Will these consumption patterns not devastate our culture and environment, that is whatever that remains of them?

(A) optimistic

(B) humorous

(C) skeptical

(D) serious

(D) try to look beyond mere economic definitions

14. The author is most likely to agree with the idea that:

(A) Western styles of ecological management are not necessarily disastrous

(B) India should not merely copy the Western models of growth but try to evolve something of its own

(C) India should try to emulate the better aspects of the Western models and try to exploit forest resources to the fullest.

(D) India should always strive to attain an ecological harmony commensurate with the need and aspirations of the teeming millions.
