Q1) What is twin deficit? Explain. (125 words)

Q2) List the qualitative measures of credit control used by RBI. (125 words)

  1. A twin deficit occurs when a nation’s government has both a trade deficit and a budget deficit. A trade deficit, also known as a current account deficit, happens when a nation imports more than it exports, buying more from other countries and foreign companies than it sells to them. A budget deficit occurs when a nation spends more on goods and services than it makes through taxes and other financial gains.

Both the deficits are linked. Under heavy fiscal deficit government borrows from credit market and then from foreign sources. It will lead to appreciation of currency and exports become expensive while imports become cheaper. Thus, further fuelling the trade deficit. India suffers from a twin account deficit.

Varnish

Varnish is a transparent, hard, protective finish or film that is primarily used in wood finishing but also for other materials. Varnish is traditionally a combination of a drying oil, a resin, and a thinner or solvent. Varnish has little or no color, is transparent, and has no added pigment, as opposed to paints or wood stains, which contain pigment and generally range from opaque to translucent. Varnishes are also applied over wood stains as a final step to achieve a film for gloss and protection. Continue reading “UKPCS Science Chemistry: Varnish:# 23”

UKPCS Science Chemistry: EXPLOSIVES:# 22

Oracle IAS, the best coaching institute for UPSC/IAS/PCS preparation in Dehradun brings to you UKPCS Science Chemistry (paper 6). 

EXPLOSIVE

Explosive, is a reactive substance that contains a great amount of potential energy that can produce an explosion if released suddenly, usually accompanied by the production of light, heat, sound, and pressure.

The potential energy stored in an explosive material may, for example, be

  • chemical energy, such as nitroglycerin or grain dust
  • pressurized gas, such as a gas cylinder or aerosol can
  • nuclear energy, such as in the fissile isotopes uranium-235 and plutonium-239

In contrast, some materials are merely combustible or flammable if they burn without exploding. The distinction, however, is not razor-sharp. Certain materials—dusts, powders, gasses, or volatile organic liquids—may be simply combustible or flammable under ordinary conditions, but become explosive in specific situations or forms, such as dispersed airborne clouds, or confinement or sudden release.
