(17) In Plato’s Ideal State, one reaches at the pinnacle of the State order at the age of:

(d) None of these
(1) Interest groups always try to:

(b) Influence the exercise of power
(c) Both ‘a’ and ‘b’
(d) None of these

Interest group is another name for lobbies. They influence the exercise of power.

(7) “Justice is giving everyone his due” is said by:
(a) Rousseau
(b) Hobbes
(c) Aristotle
(d) None of these

It was Plato, not Aristotle. Pick up the question paper of 1998.

(10) The concept of ‘Separation of Powers’ was given by:
(a) Montesquieu
(b) Machiavelli
(c) Bentham
(d) None of these

Note: The word 'concept' is tricky. Before Montesqueiu, it were Aristotle and Locke that actually introduced the concept. Montesquieu erected the doctrine.

(14) “Only the will of the sovereign can be the source of law”. Who said it?
(a) John Hobbes
(b) John Austin
(c) Groutious
(d) None of these

There is no person like 'John Hobbes'. It's Thomas Hobbes.

(17) In Plato’s Ideal State, one reaches at the pinnacle of the State order at the age of:
(a) 35
(b) 40
(c) 50
(d) None of these

At 35, Plato's student finishes his course in Mathematics, Logic and Dialectics. After this follows another 15 years of meditation and philosophical speculation. It's the philosopher-king, that I think, represent's Plato's pinnacle of state.

You are doing a good job. If you did all these from memory, i'm hopeful that you'll score well.
