28. Identify the reasoning in the argument: ‘Use of teaching aids in the classroom to enhance learning is important in a similar way as that of the use of ICT for production of knowledge’

  • Option : B
  • Explanation : Analogical reasoning relies upon an analogy, citing accepted similarities between two systems to support the conclusion that some further similarity exists.
    Deductive reasoning starts with a general statement, premise or hypothesis, and examines the possibilities to reach a specific, logical conclusion.
    Inductive inference goes from the specific to the general. We make many specific observations, discern a pattern from them, make a generalization, and infer an explanation or a theory.
    Hypothetical reasoning explores several different alternative solutions in parallel to determine which approach or series of steps best solves a particular problem.

29. In a classroom situation, a teacher organises group discussion to help arrive at a solution of a problem. In terms of a model of communication used, it will be called:

  • Option : A
  • Explanation : The transaction model of communication describes communication as a process in which communicators consiously generate social realities within social, relational, and cultural contexts. They don't just communicate to exchange messages; but to create relationships, form intercultural alliances, shape their self-concepts, and solve problems.
    The interactive model is less message- focused and more interaction-focused. Each participant alterates rates as sender and receiver very quickly and often without conscious thought in order to keep communication going.

30. Today’s media – society equation is large:

  • Option : C
  • Explanation : The role of media is to reach new information from the source to the target audience in a one way communication. In the process, it spreads thought and philosophy; informs on union and division of peoples and boundaries; popularises or demonises individuals; builds prejudices; and markets products. Though traditionally, the media prided itself on morality and equality, which lent a mystical character to it; with the rise of a global commercial world; it has steadily moulded a consumerist society. Trade and commerce govern individual as well as national interests. So, the media-society equation today is largely consumer-conscious.
