1. Read the passage carefully and the correct option in your answersheet.

Rajasthan represents the ultimate confluence of history, chivalry romance rugged natural beauty, and colour. In the words of the celebrated author Col. James Todd Rajasthan exhibits the sole example in the history of mankind of a people withstanding even outragebarbaric. can inflict or human nature sustain. Today, long after the bugle was sounded and the warring kingdoms of erstwhile Raiputana sheathed their swords the desert appears romantic)

Go to any city or village in Rajasthan, the land of sand dunes and forts  it is common to see and to listen to an old m an with a hookah tell talesof royal grandeur Maharani Pratap and his favourite horse Chetak t his grandchildren. The tales are not what they are they are tales that give an outsider an opportunity do delve deeper into--the Rajasthani psyche.

Situated in North Western India Rajasthan spans across 3.4 lakhs sq. kms. and has a population of 5.65 crore of which 23.38% lives in the urban areas and a literacy rate of 61%. Rajasthan is a treasure trove of minerals, holds a share of about 24% in the total national production of non metallic minerals. The state contributes around 90% of the national output of rock phosphate, 100% of natural gypsum and 10% of the natural limestone. Rajasthan is an archaeologists dream come true with its forts and palaces, the heritage buildings but the tourism sector hardly gets the attention it deserves. Its capital Jaipur was in the news in the year 2004 due to the Ad Asia summit in which many renowned people like Amitabh Bacchan, Birlas, Mukesh Ambani and many more rubbed shoulder with each other.

To give a fillip to the tourist inflow, the government had thought of coining a brand name for Rajasthan akin to Kerala's Gods 'own country but nothing much has been done in this field.-It unfortunately had not been able to go that extra mile like Kerala. Investments in tourism here is a little above 2 crore while the same is about 40 crore in Kerala. Hospitality is Rajasthan's birth right. The state has over 3500 hotels of all sizes and shapes. Many hoteliers house their hotels in Jaipur due its  proximity to Delhi. On the industrial front things have just begun to look up with the government stepping up its intervention to revive ailing small and medium enterprises and taking new initiatives in biotech and information technology sectors. Meanwhile the government is conducting a dialogue with industry and trade representatives to infuselife into them at a time when the industry is facing the danger o increased competition from abroad and states like Haryana; Delhi,Punjab and Utter Pradesh. Despite initial problems Rajasthan is now truly and surely ambling on its way to turn into an IT hub. Even though Rajasthan has been a slow starter in the high tech arena it is getting support from many famous companies like Wipro, Patni Computersetc.

Jaipur and Jodhpur have emerged as global centres for gems and jeweller. About -9-5% of the total coloured gems stones are exported from the city. More than the domestic tourists it is the, foreign tourists who, are the darlings of the jewelers. The craft sector is witnessing a new breed of entrepreneurs who are integrating their ventures in tune with global trends.

In the housing segment the number of players is much and equally intense. One of the most significant things that has happened in Housing Finance sector in recent times is the descending rates of interest making home loans cheaper than ever before. In the year 2004 Ansal and Sahara Parivar entered Rajasthan with their mini satellite township.
