Read the following story and answer the questions that follow :
Fight between the planets

One day, Raju slept after reading his book of geography. In dreams, Raju saw that there was a fight going on between the planets and satellites. They were fighting over who holds the most importance. The Sun and planets like Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, all were busy praising themselves.
"I am the brightest planet," said Venus, "I am unique because I revolve from west to east, while you all revolve in the opposite direction. I am considered to be Goddess." The Earth smirked and said, "I am the only planet, which supports life and has water and an atmosphere."
"I am red in colour and known as the God of War," said Mars.
"I have the maximum number of satellites," said Jupiter.
"I am counted amongst the biggest of planets," interrupted Saturn. Uranus said, "I am huge and green in colour. The Greeks consider me as their God and worship me."
"I am blue in colour and very big. I am known as the 'Sea-God'," said Neptune. The Moon was getting irritated with the praises from all the other planets.
Who was getting irritated with this conversation?

A The Moon
B The Earth
C Uranus
D Saturn


Saturn is the correct answer

Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
In the 19th century a series of discoveries were made across Europe, in Belgium, Gibraltar, Germany and Croatia. Interestingly, it was the site of the third discovery that lends its name to what was found. Named after the Neander valley in Germany, scientists had uncovered the first evidence of Neanderthal man. Since then, their remains have been found across Western and Central Europe, in the Levant and in regions of Northern and Western Asia. No remains have been found in Africa to date. At their peak, it is thought that the population of Neanderthals may have reached 70,000.
Today, Neanderthals are classed as a species or subspecies of human. They are closely related to us and share 99.7% of our DNA. We also lived alongside each other in Europe for a few thousand years. However, they became extinct about 40,000 years ago, and modern humans did not. There are a number of theories that seek to explain why the Neanderthals disappeared, but we cannot be certain of the exact reason. One scenario assumes that Neanderthals and modern humans were separate species and the arrival of humans, together with climate change, meant that they were gradually replaced.
Some argue that this interaction between the two species may have been violent. Another scenario places Neanderthals as a subspecies of human that interbred with us and disappeared through being absorbed into the population. The exact nature of the relationship between Neanderthals and modern humans has not been scientifically proven and is contentious. There are also extinction theories that put the blame on an extreme volcanic event. We do know that about 55,000 years ago the climate started to fluctuate between extreme cold and milder conditions. Rapid fluctuations, occurring within a few decades, may have made it difficult for Neanderthals to adapt and survive.

Which of the following assumptions is not described in the passage?

ANeanderthals interbred with humans.
BHumans and Neanderthals had a violent confrontation.
CClimate change and arrival of modern human replaced Neanderthals.
DNeanderthals replaced humans in Africa.
