(optional question)
In biology, the term mutualism refers to a mutually beneficial relationship between two species. The later economic theory of mutualism is based on the labour theory of value, which states that the true cost of an item is the amount of labour that was required to produce it. Hence, goods should not be sold for more than the cost of acquiring them. Mutualism is closely associated with anarchism, because its principles were set forth in the mid- nineteenth century by the French politician and philosopher Pierre-Joseph Proudhon – the first person to define himself as an “anarchist”. 
The main tenets of mutualism are free association  and free credit. In a mutualist workplace, workers with different skills form an association to create a product or service. Though dependent on each other, the workers are not subordinated as in a capitalist enterprise. Mutual banks, also called credit unions, operate on the belief that free credit enables profit to be generated for the benefit of the union’s members rather than bankers. 
Modern-day mutualism is sometimes described as free-market socialism. Proponents of mutualism support a free market economy, but object to capitalism because of the inequalities created by government intervention. Many mutual businesses and banking establishments exist today, espousing Proudhon’s Co-operative model. 
[Use Ture, False, Cannot say for the below questions]

a) Proudhon’s economic theory of mutualism was influenced by biological mutualism. 
b) Mutual banking establishments do not operate on a for-profit basis.
c) The labour theory of value is defined as: only the person who made an item should profit from its sale.


Mechanization is defined as the process of using machines to perform work that had previously been performed by people. Automation, which is an extension of mechanization, is defined as the process of performing mechanical operations with minimal or no human involvement. Automation is commonly used whenever an organization faces difficulties producing a product of a consistent quality, as well as when work is monotonous or unsafe for employees. 

Automation systems can be either hard or soft. Soft automation systems are adaptable, thus allowing them to perform several different functions. Hard automation systems have each machine perform one specific function. As a result, these systems are less adaptable than soft automation systems. From the information given above, it can be validly concluded that:

a) There are at least some automated systems that require considerable human involvement to perform mechanical operations
b) If an organization can consistently produce a high quality product, it is unlikely that it will use an automated system.
c) No hard automation system is more adaptable than a soft automation system.
d) Any organization that uses an automated system has found its work to be monotonous or unsafe for employees.

  1. Great work sir, thanks for helping us out by providing mock tests.

  2. Thnq for the papers and help sir

  3. sir have you seen sample paper uploaded by iit Mumbai for u-ceed?

    1. can u plz help me in solving Q.6

    2. Will look into that question

    3. I just checked the question. I've already given detailed explanations and procedure for solving such questions in my earlier posts, you may check the following post links to get help, I hope the explanations in these links will clarify your doubt

      Working with Geometric objects

      Solving number of faces on complex geometric solids

    4. i am unable to solve it...i applied same trick as u have taught..but ans of this question is 42 and i m able to count only 24 surfaces...:\

    5. The given solid is symmetry but it has slant shapes, so should be careful while counting.

      Try this way -
      Avoid counting the slant surfaces (rectangles in the given picture) and count the rest shapes as I have given (front-right-back-R-Top-bottom).
      After this, count the slant surfaces separately.
      From front (excluding slanting rectangles) -
      1 small square + four triangles = 5 surfaces

      The picture is symmetry, so from all sides, the same count will come, i.e
      1 small square + four triangles = 5 surfaces

      So, since we have to count fro six sides, so total surfaces (exclusing slant rectangles) = 5*6 = 30

      Now, separately count the slant rectangles - which will be 12 (be careful whilce counting this). So, total = 30+12 = 42

      Hope you got this. I'm planning to give explanations for the mock test. Will try to explain with pics. That should help you further. Anyway, I strongly recommend you to go through the link that I provided to you - "Working with Geo objects" (previous comment) to check the explanations for clarifications.
