Read the following passages and answer the questions that follow :
The Palaeolithic remains have been found in all parts of India, especially in the Deccan. In ancient times, south of the Vindhya Mountain and the Narmada river, was known as Dakshinapath; now it is called the Deccan. There were two main cultures in the Palaeolithic Age, the Sonnian and the Acheulian. Some tools from the Sonnian culture have been found in the Shivalik hills of the Indian subcontinent. Most Sonnian tools belong to late middle period found in past Shivalik sediments. Sonnian artifacts have been recovered in Pakistan. Acheulian sites have been divided in early Acheulian and late Acheulian, on the basis of the tools produced. Early Acheulian tools have been recovered at the edge of the Vindhya hills in the Narmada Basin. Flake tools were the major features of the late Acheulian Age. Small and medium size hand axes and cleavers were main tools of this age used for chopping meat. Various sites of Acheulian in the Deccan are excavated like Chirki-Nevasa, Guhox, Saswad, Nasre, Yeduwadi, Attirampakkam and Bhimbetka. Various Acheulian tools have been discovered from Nevasa, a tributary of the Godavari in Maharashtra.
All this indicates that Nevasa was a popular habitation of the Palaeolithic man for a long time. From these stone tools we come to know about food and shelters of early man. One of these sites is Attirampakkam valley in the northwest of Tamil Nadu. Archaelogical research has discovered evidence of fossil remains of animals and primitive stone implements in the northern Tamil Nadu around 300,000 BC. Man in Deccan lived in this Palaeolithic period for a long time, using only crude implements.
Name the two main cultures of the Palaeolithic age.

A Dakshinapath and Deccan.
B Vindhya hills and Narmada Basin.
C The Sonnian and the Acheulian.
D The New and the old Palaeolithic.


The right answer should be C but it says the right answer is A. How?

Read the following passages and answer the questions that follow :
By the time he was nine years old, Aftab Solanki weighed 49 kilos, nearly twice the normal weight for boys his age. His doting parents and neighbours considered him “healthy”, often describing or calling Aftab “cute”. His sluggishness and increasing appetite, his periodic breathlessness, occasional dizzy spells and pain in the knees were all dismissed as things that would disappear once he grew up. “But as his weight kept increasing, we became concerned and wanted to consult a good doctor,” says Aftab’s father Mohammed Ramzan Solanki. Kids like Aftab are part of a fast-growing national urban epidemic seen over the past few decades. It’s an irony that despite there being more undernourished children in India than in any other country, we also have millions of obese and overweight urban school children. And experts say these obese children will one day face severe medical consequences. Compared to children of normal weight, obese ones face several times the risk for developing high blood pressure, respiratory complications, Type-2 diabetes (the most common form of disease), cardiovascular disease and cancer— and, indeed, much reduced life-spans.
“The medical consequences of obesity are seen at all ages, even among kids,” says Dr. Vaman Khadilkar, consultant pediatric endocrinologist at Jehangir Hospital, Pune. “Our youngest Type-2 diabetic is six-year-old, while a hypertensive patient is just eight. High levels of cholesterol and triglycerides—both of which increase the risk of cardiovascular disease—are seen in children very frequently nowadays, unlike in the past. And we routinely see these high levels in obese children.”
A six-year-old Type-2 diabetic proves that _______ at all ages.

A diabetes can attack
B diabetes can’t attack
C the medical consequences of obesity are seen
D None of these


How can the answer be B? I chose C but it's marking me as wrong.

READ THE PASSAGE AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS THAT FOLLOW.

Much before medical science discovered it Readers Digest came out with the prescription-Laughter is the Best Medicine. News papers and magazines which regularly run humour columns are, therefore, doing their bit to keep the readers in good health. Reading light articles, whether they be satirical, comic or just humorous, relieves the tedium of work-a-day world. Some pieces may even tickle one’s grey matter.

It is said that if you laugh for ten minutes you will be in a better position to put up with pain for two hours. According to US researchers, laughter is a good antidote to stress that tones up the system. Facial laugh muscles instruct the brain to ‘feel good’ regardless of how you feel.

According to a French doctor, laughter deepens breathing, improves blood circulation, speeds up the process of tissue healing and stabilises many body functions. In short, it acts as a power drug with no side effects. Researchers state that laughter stimulates production of a beta-endorphins, natural pain killers in the body and improves digestion. Those who laugh are less prone to digestive disorders and ulcers.

Some people in France have made it a career. You can hire a ‘jovialist’ who cracks jokes and laughs and promises to make you dissolve your worries in helpless laughter. A word of caution. Although laughing is a good exercise for toning up the facial muscles, laughing at others’ expense, particularly at their disabilities, is in bad taste and is to be avoided. Secondly, laughing with food in the mouth is dangerous as the food stuff can get into the wind pipe and may choke the digestive system.

Eating, any way, is a serious business to be trifled with by any jocular diversion. Laughter comes best when it is free of encumbrances, whether it is constricting food or the need to humour the boss.

What function does laughter perform?

AIt relieves the tension and fatigue of the day’s work.
BIt fills the pages to keep people in best mood and humour.
CIt keeps people in bad health.
DOne feels good regardless of what one is experiencing.
