With Saudi Arabia as a pact between them the Saudi Arabia accept America’s proposal to sell cruide oil only in dollar and in return they got deals in arm from America and hence followed by all the oil producing nations(OPEC). Hence dollar become the reserve currency.

    Q6. Why do some people recommend that Pakistan should not be given the bailout package by IMF?
    Ans- As Pakistan have taken loans from China for infrastructural work of CPEC and the loans amount to be paid is in billions so how the new government is going to pay that? While CPEC is one small phase of China’s dream project BRI which china is spreading across many countries. So if Pakistan gets the bailout package now the other countries too will think that they can take the opportunities in BRI of China and then they can pay China’s loan by loan out package.
    Q7. What do you mean by scientific temper? How is it built? Is it a fundamental duty of Indians?
    Ans- It is common to hear that the scientific temper is way of life, so is this only for scientists or we too have this scientific temper? To simplify this see the ability of human being to predict some results. It either can be done by just predicting them or we can build a modal on the basis of we make prediction and see how close or relevant the result is to the prediction. And iterate the process by making changes to the model and again predicting the results.¬¬¬¬¬ This can be called our scientific temper or a normal average scientific temper but the professional in their daily life research and analysis, they use more advance level approach where the create hypothesis about something, make model on that and prediction attached to it. Than they run the cases as per algorithm and finally a modal.
    Yes, it is one of the fundamental duties to develop the scientific temper, humanism and spirit of enqury and reform.
