Question 6 : Read the following statements and answer the question that follows:
1. An in-depth exploration of the Indian case and case studies of early adopters of mobile technology will provide spectrum managers a pragmatic and modern approach whereby they could utilize their resources efficiently and optimally.
2. Even as spectrum management regimes are moving from a command and control regime to a flexible use regime, new technological developments are suggesting that there are significant opportunities in managing large swathes of spectrum as a common property resource, in addition to flexible use.
3. Political legacies and market realities in different regimes pose unique challenges for spectrum managers who must negotiate a tricky path to the land promised by technological possibility.
4. On the other hand, supply of spectrum is restricted due to competing nature of uses and vested interests of incumbent holders.
5. The demand for spectrum has never been so acute as today's communication services extend beyond simple voice to complex data and video, augmented by evolving technologies such as peer-to-peer sharing, social networking, Fourth and Fifth Generation networks, Big Data, and cloud computing.
Rank the above five statements so as to make it a logical sequence:
Consider the 5th statement which talks about demand for spectrum. The 4th statement which talks about supply of spectrum starting with “on the other hand” and beginning to talk about a contrasting topic to demand, that is supply is the best following statement. So the order is 5,4. While the 4th statement talks about what restricts supply of spectrum, statement 3 further talks about challenges for spectrum managers. The correct order so far is 5,4,3.
Second statement which talks about opportunities in managing spectrum, will be the best starting statement before talking about demand and supply of spectrum. So the order is 2,5,4,3.
The first statement gives a solution to the previously stated problems of spectrum managers. Hence it is the best closing statement. The correct order of statements is 2, 5, 4, 3, 1.
Choice E is the correct answer.
