UPSC Mains 2013: (Solved) General Studies Paper 2

I am uploading here what I wrote in the General Studies paper 2 of 2013 UPSC mains exam. This is just from memory and is only broadly similar to what I wrote. The words obviously can’t be the same. You are most welcome to criticize/add to/suggest alternate answers :-) I am only putting up a link here because the formatting of wordpress leaves much to desire.
