Unproctored Mock-7 2011
1. cOption (a) does not best describe Gregor’s actions.More than disobedience, Gregor seems to displayimpudence or a behavior similar to a pest/unwantedor annoying family member. Option (b) is incorrect asGregor tries and fails to express himself with reason.Option (d) is incorrect as only Gregor’s sister showssigns of empathy. Option (c) is correct as ‘verminous’means – like a pest.2. cRefer to the lines in paragraph 1 “…It may all be trueeven, but although Kafka is careful about the mood hebuilds, the purpose of the story isn’t quite that mind-boggling. Importantly, the story holds up just fine as astory. It’s more an odd exhibit to be appreciated than itis a puzzle to be solved.” The author feels that Kafkahas created a story to be appreciated and enjoyedand not a conundrum or a puzzle to be solved. Option(a) does not seem to be in line with what the authorthinks. There are hints that Metamorphosis is allegoricalbut no ‘driving home the point.’ Options (b) and (d) areincorrect as according to the author Kafka does notaim to make the story a puzzle/riddle/conundrum.Option (c) is correct as the props and notes in thestory do provoke academicians to infer somethingbeyond, though, according to the author, that is notthe central aim of Kafka.3. aRefer to the lines in paragraph 2, “I’m sure that anypointy-headed academic would be the first to tell youthat the sturdy storytelling is part of what makes thisstory so beguiling (and here I start off on my ownwacky over analysis). The style holds up against, andcleverly contrasts, the giant absurdity of the premise.”The sturdy narrative contrasted with the plot makesthe story beguiling or a leads to an impression oftrickery. Hence ‘A’ can be inferred. ‘B’ is incorrect asGregor tries to behave with reason after histransformation. ‘C’ is incorrect as Gregor shows anattempt to behave with reason whereas his familybehaves ‘emotionally’.4. dThe paragraph talks about the perception of a blackbaby being raised by a white family. It is important torealize that for the adoptive family racism was‘intolerable’. Option (d) hence fits the answer as itcontinues the same idea. All the other options bringout unrelated aspects of the situation.5. aThe passage describes the destruction caused bymountain top removal and only option (a) carriesforward the idea. The rest of the options representdepartures from the main idea. Option (b) goes intopossible reasons; option (c) is the author’s judgementor opinion. Option (d) goes against the tone of theparagraph of which critical of mountain top removal.6. dThe correct usage is ‘hand
in 
glove’ which means ‘inextremely close relationship or agreement’.7. aThe correct usage is ‘put
pen 
to paper’ which means‘to start to write something’.8. cThe correct usage is ‘burn
out 
’ which means ‘to stopbeing effective because of too much work or stress’.9. aOption (a) cannot be inferred as the passage mentions
“substitute Kirsten Chavez singing the role at least as well”.
Also it is not clear whether Denyce Gravingwas with the Metropolitan Opera.
 
So saying ‘DenyceGraving of the Metropolitan Opera’ is also incorrect.Option (b) can be inferred as the author asserts inparagraph 2 that the show seems to be focused onleveraging its star power rather than on showcasinga forgotten jewel. Option (c) can be inferred fromparagraph 3 as the author mentions the established‘connection’ of Simon and Dessay. Option (d) isindicated by the author at the end of paragraph 3.Refer to the last line of the paragraph that ends with“….would have been enough to carry the opera.”10. dThe author finally comes down to the central point inparagraph 4. Refer to the lines “But Thomas’ musicsimply isn’t as strong as music by other composerswho have taken on the Bard, from the obvious Verdi,to Gounod, who, like Thomas, held fast to Frenchtraditions, and Bellini, who, like Thomas, presented alooser take.” Options (a), (b) and (c) are stated by theauthor and are true. But the central point or the mainreason for the play not having the desired impactseems to be the character of the music – ‘detachedand lacking evocativeness in many parts.’11. aRefer to the line in the last paragraph, “If his sceneswith Petersen were a little cool or forced in their firstshow, that is likely to change as the productioncontinues.” So option (b) does not look like a criticismby the author but as something that would positivelyimprove in future. Option (c) is not overtly stated as acriticism by the author anywhere in the passage. Infact the author explicitly praises Petersen in the secondlast paragraph of the passage. But option (a) is a pointof criticism by the author. In fact if we connect thispoint to the clear criticism by the author for Thomas’music this option becomes true. Refer to the last lineof the second last paragraph “Her light, frothy sopranosuited the character’s fragility, but Thomas’ frequentleaps to the top of the range sounded challenging.”The use of ‘but’ after a point of praise by the authorcan be inferred to be a point of criticism.12. bUntil now Dr Hawking had been regarded as an ally offaith. So the new revelations from him must have goneagainst the religious establishment otherwise that firstpoint would not have been mentioned. The secondblank clearly needs to contrast with the first becauseit talks about ideological opponents. ‘Jarring’ and‘mellifluous’ are the best combination to fit in the blanks.

13. aThe first blank can be filled with ‘vices’ or ‘problems’.‘Foibles’ may also seem to be a close option. But‘foibles’ usually connote a minor flaw or weaknessand is therefore inappropriate for the context. Thesecond blank helps us decide. The entire sentencediscusses how although dictatorships have beenreplaced with democracies other issues still remain.‘Entrenched’ is the word that brings out this contrastbest. ‘Pervasive’ is close but it means something whichis widespread. It is a better contrast with somethingthat is rare. Thus in the context not as appropriate.‘Dislodged’ conveys the opposite idea, to what isneeded in the blank, as it means ‘removed from place’.14. aStatement B is incorrect, as we need an article before‘suite of rooms’. Statement D is incorrect as ‘showedin’ does not convey the appropriate meaning. It shouldhave been ‘showed
up 
’ which means ‘to appear orarrive’.15. dStatement A is incorrect, as ‘many’ needs to be followedby a plural noun. ‘Many
reasons
’ would have beencorrect. Statement C needs to have a comma afteradditionally. Additionally is used as an adverb hereand it modifies the entire sentence because we areciting an additional reason. If we omit the comma it willact as an adverb only for the adjective that comesafter it. ‘
Additionally commercial 
banks’16. bThe mandatory pair that can be seen first is (B-E). Butthis is present in all the options. To solve this parajumblewe need to link other sentences to this pair. StatementA comes after (B-E) as it continues the idea of businesscontinuing with neo-classical economics despite itbeing ‘demolished’. This leaves us with options (a)and (b). The placements of statements D and C beingthe only difference. (b) is the better option as statementC needs to be at the beginning. Only if it is mentionedalready that neo-classical economics was disprovedwould the writer’s surprise, at it still being followed bybusiness, make sense. Also D fits in much better after(B-E-A) as it expresses Joan Robinson’s disgust atneo-classical economics still being prevalent inbusiness.17. b(D-C) can be seen to be the opening pair in thisparajumble as it sets the context for the entirediscussion. This effectively leads us to choosebetween options (a) and (b). Option (a) can beeliminated as statement B can come only afterstatement E. Statement E introduces the idea ofscientific determinism.18. bOption (a) leaves out the trigger point i.e. the initialdiscussion about irreducible complexity. Option (c) istoo specific and needs to be more explanatory. Option(d) is incorrect as it is a ‘rigid’ adherence and not ‘lackof evidence’ which is responsible for the scientists’attitude towards intelligent design. Option (b) is correct.The author does argue through the initial discussionon irreducible complexity about the ‘limited attitude’ ofthe scientists and the reasons for that.19. cProfessor Provine posits something as a scientificprinciple but the author calls it a philosophical one. Thereason for this is that whatever Provine says lacksscientific evidence. So what Provine states as ascientific assertion itself lacks scientific basis. Hence,it is a contradiction. Options (a), (c) and (d) do notexplain in specific terms how the professor’s statementis a contradiction.20. aThe term “historical chauvinism” indicates the supportfor rigid or prejudiced beliefs against the existence ofa creator or for models like ‘intelligent design’ whichhinge on the existence of a creator. Option (a) isspecific and correct. Option (b) cannot be concludedas the author is referring here mainly to contemporaryscientists. Option (c) is again incorrect as the authorclearly mentions that ‘it is not a question of lack ofevidence’. Option (d) is incorrect as ‘purposeful attitude’is associated with intelligent design and not with theview of contemporary scientists. Refer to ProfessorProvine’s assertion.
