Ans.(4). Options 1, 2 and 3 are not suitable as they contain mutually opposing words whereas the question demands words with similar meaning. Option (4) has “unimportant” and “trivial” as the similar words. Ans.(2). The use of the word ‘groveled’ in the question suggests that the blanks should contain words with negative connotation. Thus options 1, 3 and 4 get eliminated. Option (2) is the best. Ans.(4). One cannot ‘maximize’, ‘enact’ or be ‘under’ a decision. Decisions are ‘faced’. Hence options 1, 2 and 3 get eliminated. Ans.(2). The second blank needs an adjective for ‘nerves’ which are no longer working properly. So ‘damaged’ is the best option. Also note that nerves cannot be detrimental or complex or involuntary. Ans.(3). For the first blank, we need an adjective for the word ‘ choices’. In the context of Internet, the ‘choices’ can best be described as ‘unlimited’. So option 3 is the correct option. Ans.(1). Obtrudes means ‘become noticeable in an unwelcome or intrusive way’. Therefore by meaning it is the option that best fits the first blank. Also since it means to become noticeable in an unwelcome manner, the second blank is rightly filled with the word ‘offends’. Ans.(3). In general, a loose fiscal policy would lead to an increase in demand. So ‘assess’, ‘outstrip’ and ‘restrain’ do not fit the first blank as well as the word ‘stimulate’ does. So option 3 is the correct option. Ans.(1). For the first blank, words ‘leisure’ and ‘time’ both can be used. So we eliminate options 3 and 4. However for the second blank–one cannot travel abroad and ‘ignore’ the world. So option 1 is the correct option. Ans.(1). The link is AC and D should be the opening statement. Ans.(3). The link is ECD and E should be the opening statement. AB is a strong link. Ans.(2). The link is CE and ED. BA is also a strong link. Ans.(4). D is a good opening statement. AE is also a good link. Ans.(2). The link is AD and B is the opening statement. Ans.(1). Answer cannot start with A or C, hence options (3) and (4) are ruled out. A strong link is ED. Best option is (1). Ans.(4). The link is EDB. This is present only in option (4) and hence that is the best choice. Ans.(4). The link is EC, CB and BDA. Ans.(3). The correct usage is ‘help himself to’ and not ‘help himself with’. Options 1, 2 and 4 use the word correctly. Ans.(4). The correct usage is ‘listen to reason’ and not ‘listen to a reason’ . Options 1, 2 and 3 use the word correctly. Ans.(1). The correct usage is ‘look great on paper’ and not ‘look great on the paper’. Options 2, 3 and 4 use the word correctly. Ans.(2). The correct sentence is ‘My wife runs a profitable business in this suburb’. Options 1, 3 and 4 use the word correctly. Ans.(1). The correct usage is ‘to serve themselves’ and not ‘to service themselves’. Options 2, 3 and 4 use the word correctly. Ans.(1) The use of the word “circumstances” makes this the best choice. Ans.(4) Ans.(2) It is the best worded of all. Ans.(2) Ans.(2). The answer is stated in the last paragraph. All other combinations given are factually incorrect (as per the passage). Ans.(4). The answer is stated in the first paragraph. Greeks were not into mysticism, thinkers as they were. Ans.(4). The answer is stated in the penultimate paragraph. The sheer immensity of the Egyptian architecture proves it. Ans.(1). The answer is stated explicitly in the first paragraph. You just can’t get it wrong!

30.

Ans.(3). The answer is stated in the last paragraph. Refer to the line “They would build what was more beautiful than hill and sea and sky and greater than all these.” Ans.(3). Option (1) is not strong enough to be the central theme. Option (2) is completely wrong, as per the first paragraph. Option (4) is wrong because the focus of the passage is on PRIs. Ans.(1) The idea is clear: The PRIs have been weakened over time. “Volition” = Desire. ‘Volition got circumscribed’ means that their capability to plan and work as per their needs has reduced. Ans.(2) The ‘flaw’ discussed in the first para makes it clear. While interstate and centre-state are free of the problem of “who gets what and how much power”, the intra-state is not free of this dilemma. Ans.(3). The answer is stated in the first paragraph. It is quite explicit. Ans.(4). The answer is clearly evident from the facts mentioned in the passage like “rise of the several regional parties and smaller pressure groups representing the larger will of the masses they represent.” Ans.(1). The answer is stated in the third paragraph. Ans.(2). The statement means that his father was not interested in his intellectual studies, and he was not interested in the construction work of his father. So, a social was created. Ans.(4). The other options find a mention in the second paragraph. Option (4) is not stated explicitly. Ans.(4). This fact is not mentioned anywhere in the passage. Ans.(2). The answer is stated in the last paragraph. This is quite an easy one to spot! Ans.(4) Only the 4th option is correct. The first three are wrong. Ans.(2) Straight and simple! Ans.(1). The answer is stated in the second paragraph. Ans.(3). The answer is stated in the third paragraph. Ans.(3). The answer is stated in the penultimate paragraph. Ans.(2). The answer is stated in the fourth paragraph. Ans.(1). The answer is stated in the first paragraph. Ans.(4). The answer is stated in the fourth paragraph. Ans.(2) Ans.(1). The answer is stated in the second paragraph. It is apparent that we can apply SIMILARITY theorem to this problem.

Before C could mark the answers. answer to all these questions can be easily obtained.(3) 116. E (source from where C gets its blank answers) and I (source where C gets Q. A. value for the year 1995 comes out to be the lowest. Thus the only answer has to be Ans.94 + 10.35%).

E got Q. we can allot days for the parties as follows : Party Congress BJP SP BSP CPM Day Thursday Friday Thursday Friday Friday Therefore.36) = 42. Options (1). his total score would become 3585 + 5296 = 8881. On calculating the values for these years. Ans. Tea productivity would be highest for the year 1999 because in the year 1999.(2) For Q. Ans. Ans. Ans. Ans. The two companies excluded from the third chart are companies B and D. Similarly from above DG was sitting when JP entered. 1st ranked person has total score of 8905 and 2nd ranked person has total score of 8897.136 & Q.78 + 10. Now JC and DG left the lounge together and DG came back and met PK. Ans.56 wrong (27 wrong obtained from I).131 : 129. 123. C had 2 wrong answers & some blanks too. we can get all the answers. G got Q. and similarly for H. For E to prepare its answer key.(2) 130. Then SM and SS left the lounge and JP. Thus 4 people must have made their answer keys before C could make it. we can draw the following diagram For Q. Ans.(1) 127. C got Q. G & D have just got one answer wrong and no blanks.(2) 126. Presently he is scoring 582 + 3003 = 3585. Therefore. Thus they both should have had the same sources. Population would be calculated as (Availability of Tea) ÷ (Per capita Availability of Tea). VR met with DG. E and H both got Q.SOLUTIONS For Q. Ans.5.83 Difference = 0. Ans.(1) 131. These companies have had a negative profitability. Thus the only answer has to be (3).(4) 113.(4) 117.27 wrong) must have prepared their answer keys. JC and JP and the last two faculties to leave the lounge are JP & DG. Ans.137 : 136. Companies with profitability exceeding 10% in F.85 + 10.(3) 114.124 : After analysing the given information.Y.(2) 140. Ans. JC was the first to enter followed by SS and SM. Ans. (2) and (3) are correct. Therefore he must get a score of greater than 8880 but less than 8897. Thus G and H were sources to none of the nine.
