Here are two questions to practice answer writing for UPSC CSE Mains. There would be more questions coming tomorrow.


1. Does a relationship exist between disaster resilience of a country and its socio-economic development? In light of various natural disasters that have struck countries globally in the recent past, why do the developing countries suffer deeper losses than their developed counterparts?                                                                       


2. What do you understand by the term “Genetic Scissors”? Discuss its potential in the field of medicine and life sciences along with the risks involved.
