Direction (Q. 7 - 10) : Below is given a passage followed by several possible inferences which can be drawn from the facts stated in the passage. You have to examine each inference separately in the context of the passage and decide upon its degree of truth or falsity.

Women constitute a significant part of the work force of India but they lag behind men in terms of level and quality of employment. The Census of India has registered 22.73 per cent of female population as workers, 90 million in absolute terms out of a total female population of 407 million. The majority of women workers are employed in the rural areas. Amongst rural women workers, 87 per cent are employed in agriculture as labourers and cultivators. Amongst the women workers in the urban areas, 80 per cent are employed in unorganised sectors like household industries, petty trades and services, building and construction, etc. The employment of women in the organised sector (both public and private sectors) was about 4.826 million. This constitutes 16.4 per cent of the total organised sector employment in the country. The lowest employment of women was noticed in electricity, gas and water sectors. In factory, mine and plantation establishments women workers constitute 14 per cent, 6 per cent and 51 per cent of the total work force respectively.

Community, social and personal services sectors absorb the majority of women employees in towns.
