The company had insured their cargo with Bajaj Allianz and lodged a claim at the Bajaj Allianz, Rajkot office on the same day.

 

Insurance support from Allianz:

 

Even though the location of theft was in the remote jungles of Africa, Bajaj Allianz appointed Lloyd’s Agency to carry out a survey immediately to check for the correctness of the claim. Lloyd’s was submitted on the survey report on November 20, 2004. It took a month for Lloyd’s to submit the report due to the procedural formalities involved in Africa to procure documents like police papers and no trace reports. Since the survey report was submitted in French a translation of the same was done at Ahmedabad on November 23, 2004. The Insured submitted all the remaining documents such as Power of Attorney, Original Bill Of Landing, NOC from Consignee, etc on November 25, 2004 from their Head Office at Mumbai. The claim was processed and based on the survey findings it was found to be true and the insurance amount of Rs.31,37,360/- was released on November 30, 2004.

 

Inference

 

Jayshri Impex managed to avoid a huge loss thanks to the insurance that it had purchased. The insurance company Bajaj Allianz also responded quickly and supported its client by releasing the amount at the earliest.

Why did Jayshri Impex claim for insurance? What type of insurance may Jayshri Impex opted for. How did the insurance company help Jayshri Impex?

Was Google’s decision not to use conventional advertising a wise one or not?

Internet search services provider in the future?

1 What’s Audience Analysis? Explain its significance in Technical Communication

Answer : In few words, audience analysis is to know more about your end-users.

 

Audience Analysis is the task to identify your target audience to make sure that the information provided in the end-user documentation is suitable for satisfying their information requirements.

 

Why should you conduct Audience Analysis?

 

 

 

2 Explain the role of a technical editor. Differentiate between Micro and Macro editing.

Answer : To understand the role of a technical editor, a person must first understand technical editing. The term, simplified and in the context of technical communication, is the process of reviewing, revising, reorganizing, and many other gerunds that begin with “re.” The goal of editing is to take an author’s work and improve it—for whatever goal that author has. The goals of each author (and of each industry) are different—they may be writing for publication, for presentations, or for their companies. All the

 

 

 

3 Explain the various phases involved in System Development Life Cycle (SDLC).

 

Answer : System Study

Preliminary system study is the first stage of system development life cycle. This is a brief investigation of the system under consideration and gives a clear picture of what actually the physical system is? In practice, the initial system study involves the preparation of a System proposal which lists the Problem Definition, Objectives of the Study, Terms of reference for Study, Constraints, Expected benefits of the new system, etc. in the light of the user requirements. The system proposal is prepared by the System Analyst

  1. No. 1 A bit is either 0 or 1: a byte is a sequence of 8 bits. Find the number of bytes that, (a) can be formed (b)begin with 11 and end with 11 (c)begin with 11 and do not end with 11 (d) begin with 11 or end with 11. 4×2.5 10

Answer:  (a) Since the bits 0 or 1 can repeat, the eight positions can be filled up either by 0 or 1 in 28 ways. Hence the number of bytes that can be formed is 256.

(b) Keeping two positions at the beginning by 11 and the two positions at the end by 11, there are four open positions, which can be filled up

 

 

2 (i) State the principle of inclusion and exclusion.

(ii) How many arrangements of the digits 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 contain at least one of the patterns 289, 234 or 487? 4+6 10

 

Answer:

  1. Principle of Inclusion and Exclusion

For any two sets P and Q, we have;

  1. i) |P Q| ≤ |P| + |Q| where |P| is the number of elements in P, and |Q| is the number elements in Q.
  2. ii) |P Q| ≤ min (|P|, |Q|)

iii) |P O Q| = |P| + |Q| – 2|P  ∩ Q| where O is the symmetric difference.

  1. 1. Select any two trade theories and analyze the applicability of these theories in today’s context.

Answer:International business began with international trade operations, facilitated by the lasses faire in the world economy. It improved the well-being of many nations, and the imposition of trade barriers reduced the gains from trade, giving rise to the search for alternate avenues to exporting. The latter resulted in the established of subsidiaries in foreign countries through FDI. In this context, it is pertinent to understand the determinants of and the effects of international trade and FDI on the trade trading partners, international operations of multinationals and the economies of the home and hose countries. Several theories have been formulated, from time to time which form the bases of international trade and FDI.

Theory of Absolute Cost Advantage: The theory of

  1. 2.Describe the main features of MNCs. Critically evaluate the relationship between MNCs and host countries.

Answer:Multinational Companies (MNCs) are also known as Transnational Corporations (TNCs).There is, however, according to some, a difference between the MNCs and the TNCs. According to some experts, MNCs produce commodities/products for domestic consumption of the countries in which they operate. The TNCs, on the other hand, concentrate on producing products/commodities to meet the markets of third countries. This difference is not normally made while referring to either MNCs or TNCs. Therefore, an MNC can also be called TNC. In this paper we

 

  1. 3. Analyse the issues and objectives on the code of conduct of Transnational Corporations (TNCs).

Answer:Issues Involved in the Negotiations:The main concern of the developed countries in the code negotiations was the establishment of a regime of minimum standards for the treatment of transnational corporations. Increased reliance on foreign investment flows was promoted consistently by the developed countries as a means to achieving efficient allocation of resources worldwide and contributing to economic growth. Some developed countries made promotion of foreign investment through the transnational corporations as a major component of there foreign economic policies. In view of the emphasis in the promotion of the transnational corporations, these countries argued for a favourable climate for foreign investments

 

  1. 4. Discuss the impact of FDI inflows in developing countries and the implications of FDI on National Income and employment in the host economies.

Answer:FDI inflows, generally, have important direct and indirect implications for the national income (output), employment, balance of payments, technological capability, market structure, and other parameters of development in the host economies.FDIs comprise inflow of productive resources, such as, capital and foreign exchange are, generally, accompanied by flow of entrepreneurial and managerial skills and technology. FDIs complement the domestic savings in financing the capital formation in the host country. Thus FDIs contribute to the generation of output and employment. The foreign exchange inflow augments the supply of foreign exchange,

 

  1. 5. Discuss how the MNEs try to develop and maintain commitment of individual managers. Give examples.

Answer: There are two related processes involved in the growth of a domestic firm to an international one. These are: geographic dispersion of corporate resources and corresponding changes in organizational development. One can classify the evolutionary pattern of MNEs from purely domestic company to a transnational corporation into five types. A company gets into foreign MARKETS by starting export sales to other countries. The growth in international business evolves from the export department to the international division, world-wide produ
