(d) said that it is

Directions (6-10): In the following passage there are blanks, each of which has been numbered. These numbers are printed below the passage and against each, five options are given. Four of the five words fit into the blank coherently. Find out the word which does not fit into the blank appropriately.

What do we mean when we say, ‘being healthy’? It means to be physically strong, mentally calm and steady, and emotionally soft inside. You are not healthy when you feel ____(6)____ inside. When the mind is stiff or is in judgement mode, it is not in good health. When emotions are rough, you are not emotionally healthy. Health flows from the innermost to the outer, and from outer to the inner.

How do you attain good health? First, by attending to the ether element, that is the mind element. If your mind is ___(7)____ with too many impressions and thoughts, it is draining you of your immunity and preparing your body for illness. If the mind is clear, calm, meditative and pleasant, the body’s resistance will increase and it will stay healthy. The first ____(8)____ is calming the mind — coming from the subtlest aspect of creation, the ether.

Then comes the air element. Breathing and aromatherapy can be used to create a change at this level. And then, light or colour therapy. By energising our system with Prana, life energy, and breath, you can ___(9)____ illness before it starts. That is what yoga does. In the Yoga Sutras, Patanjali says that the purpose of yoga is stopping sorrow before it arises, to burn the seed before it ____(10)____.

  1. (a) broken
    (b) savvy
    (c) rough
    (d) coarse
    (e) ruffled

Answer & Explanation
Ans. b

Exp. Here ‘savvy’ does not go correctly with the sentence as it means shrewdness and practical knowledge; the ability to make good judgements. As we read the paragraph we see that there are two contrasting sentences, first is being healthy and second is not being healthy. Hence the qualities of being healthy should be opposite to that of not being healthy. Hence the word should be opposite to ‘calm’, ‘strong’ and ‘soft’. ‘broken’, ‘rough’, ‘coarse’ and ‘ruffled’ are all opposite to them and hence appropriately fits into the blank.

  1. (a) choked
    (b) burdened
    (c) blocked
    (d) assisted
    (e) clogged

Answer & Explanation
Ans. d

Exp. ‘assisted’ is the wrong word here. As we see ‘choked’, ‘blocked’, ‘burdened’, ‘clogged’ all are similar. Moreover, a negative word will only fit into the blank as the sentence gives a negative conclusion.

Assisted means help, aid or abet.

  1. (a) remedy
    (b) benefit
    (c) cure
    (d) panacea
    (e) medicine

Answer & Explanation
Ans. b

Exp. Here ‘benefit’ does not fit into the sentence correctly as the sentence above it talks about the methods to stay healthy, hence the conclusion has been provided in this sentence. Hence ‘remedy’, ‘cure’, ‘panacea’, medicine’ best suit the purpose.

  1. (a) prevent
    (b) restrict
    (c) curb
    (d) pamper
    (e) avoid

Answer & Explanation
Ans. d

Exp. Here the sentence structure indicates the methods to be healthy securing us from being ill.

pamper’ means indulge with every attention, comfort, and kindness, while other words are similar in meaning to one another. Hence ‘pamper’ does not go appropriately with the theme of the passage.

  1. (a) shrivels
    (b) burgeons
    (c) germinates
    (d) sprouts
    (e) grows

Answer & Explanation
Ans. a

Exp. Here ‘shrivels’ is a wrong word which means wrinkle and contract or cause to wrinkle and contract, especially due to loss of moisture. Here the analogy sentence is given with ‘stopping sorrow before it arises’. Hence the word must be similar to ‘arises’. ‘sprouts’, ‘grows’, germinates’, ‘burgeons’ are same in meaning to each other and best suit the purpose. Hence option (a) is the correct choice.
