Directions (6-10): In each of the following questions a short passage is given with one of the lines in the passage missing and represented by a blank. Select the best out of the five answer choices given, to make the passage complete and coherent.


  1. The cure for inflation, like most cures, consists chiefly in removal of the cause. The cause of inflation is the increase of money and credit. The cure is to stop increasing money and credit ………………… It is as simple as that. Although simple in principle; this cure often involves complex and disagreeable decisions on detail. Let us begin with the Federal budget.It is next to impossible to avoid inflation with a continuing heavy deficit. That deficit is almost certain to be financed by inflationary means i.e., by directly or indirectly printing more money. Huge government expenditures are not in them selves inflationary-provided they are made wholly out of tax receipts, or out of borrowing paid for wholly out of real savings. But the difficulties in either of these methods of payment, once expenditures have passed a certain point, are so great that there is almost inevitably a resort to the printing press.


(a) The cure for inflation, in brief, is to stop inflating

(b) The cure for inflation ,in brief ,is to think positively

(c) The cure for inflation is planning small things with little thoughts

(d) The cure of inflation lies in inflation itself

(e) The cure of inflation is hidden in understanding the cause of inflation.

Answer & Explanation
Ans. a

Exp.  Next sentence after the blank space suggests that blank should have something simple about the inflation. This simple thing should be logical and sensible. Option(a)is simple and goes well with the flow of passage.Option (d) is not right as cure can not lie in cause itself. Option(e) is repetition of what was said in the introduction of passage.


  1. The India Union has had more than 55 years of experience with fiscal federalism operating within the framework of the parliamentary democracy and planned economic development. A comprehensive review of fiscal federalism in independent India is, therefore, overdue. There have been feeble protests in form to time about the sprawling powers of the Central government eroding the foundations of fiscal federalism ……………… Now that single party has been dislodged from power in some of the States and parties of different hues and colors are holding office, a can did and comprehensive review of all the aspects of Centre- State relations and the working of fiscal federalism in particular is important and necessary.


(a) But these voices were curbed by all parties.

(b) But democracy does not allow a mechanism to redress this problem

(c) But fiscal federalism is all about ignoring and moving on with protests

(d) But these voices were drowned by the overwhelming influence of the same party at the centre and the States

(e) But these protest died in with time for there feebleness

Answer & Explanation
Ans. d

Exp. Options like (e) and (b) are doubtful as passage does not mention such a thing in any of its part. Option(a) talks about all parties but the next statement after the blank space is contradicting it. Option(c) is negative and for fiscal federalism passage discusses its plight not its shortcoming or of democracy as given in option(b). Only option that can fill the blank for going in with the content of passage is option(d). This sentence and next sentence both area combination and coherent in flow.


  1. Do firms need banks, or can they make do with stock markets? Do firms need stock markets, or can they make do with banks? Alexander Gerschenkron long ago argued that economically “backward” countries could not trust decentralized capital markets to provide their largest firms sufficient funds……………… More recently, finance theorists have reasoned from agency theory and the economics of information to much the same result. And the transition in Eastern Europe has given the issue a programmatic touch: what should scholars tell the new finance ministers to do about banks and stock markets?


(a) Instead, they needed banks

(b) Instead, they needed centralization mechanisms only

(c) Hence banks and Stock markets are not needed

(d) Therefore Banks score over Stock Markets for them

(e) Banks or Stock markets both are not needed simultaneously

Answer & Explanation
Ans. a

Exp. Other options cannot be inserted in the blank space as they are not logical and in sync with passage. Option (b) can be right if ‘only’ is removed from it. Use of ‘only’ makes it incorrect. Banks and Stock markets are decentralization agents and hence are needed as per passage in this way option(c) is against the passage. Then option (d) unnecessarily will introduce comparison between banks and stock markets while passage presents both in as a pair. Option(e) is also wrong on basis of this logic.


  1. The Japanese economy is one of the third largest in the world ……………….. The Japanese currency is the Yen. Japan’s main export goods are cars, electronic devices and computers. Most important trade partners are China and the USA, followed by South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand and Germany. Imports: Japan has a surplus in its export/import balance. The most important import goods are raw materials such as oil, food stuffs and wood. Major supplier is China, followed by the USA, Australia, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Indonesia and the United Arab Emirates. Industries: Manufacturing, construction, distribution, real estate, services, and communication are Japan’s major industries today. Agriculture makes up only about two percent of the GNP. Most important agricultural product is rice. Resources of raw materials are very limited and the mining industry rather small.


(a) And it is going to achieve number one status sooner

(b) It is eying for number one spot in world economy riding on its recent technological developments

(c) Japanese Economy is going through recession and is bound to slip to lower stands in world economy

(d) Only USA and China have a higher GNP.

(e) It is only in terms of growth rate not in terms of GDP.

Answer & Explanation
Ans. d

Exp. This question is to be solved by reading whole passage as no immediate connections can be derived with sentence preceding the blank space and one following it. If Japan is third then which one are two other – it is answered in option(d). USA and China are referred to in whole passage. So they can be the other two. Option(a) is hypothetical in nature and needs some explanation to follow after it. Option (b)also needs some base. This is the case with option(c) and option(e).


  1. The prospect of renewed war between India and China is, for now, something that disturbs the sleep only of virulent nationalists in the Chinese press and retired colonels in Indian think-tanks. Optimists prefer to hail the $60 billion in trade the two are expected to do with each other this year. But the 20th century taught the world that blatantly foreseeable conflicts of interest can become increasingly foreseeable wars with unforeseeably dreadful consequences. Relying on prosperity and more democracy in China to sort things out thus seems unwise. Two things need to be done. First, the slow progress towards a border settlement needs to resume. The main on us here is on China. It has the territory it really wants and has maintained its claim to Arunachal Pradesh only as a bargaining chip. It has, after all, solved intractable boundary quarrels with Russia, Mongolia, Myanmar and Vietnam …………………………..


(a) Surely it cannot be so difficult to treat with India?

(b) Surely it will be more difficult with India?

(c) Can it solve dispute with India with its non democratic values?

(d) With India intentions are not clear.

(e) In Indian markets, Chinese presence is increasing.

Answer & Explanation
Ans. a

Exp. Last sentence shows that China has solved border dispute with a number of countries, while the passage is mainly about the relationship of India and China. This indicates that finishing statement should also be about improvement in relationships of India and China. This is given in all options. But option (a) poses a valid question as passage shows that relationships between two countries are improving.

From the other options (d) is not correct as positive improvements are illustrated in passage. Markets of option (e) are not discussed here in passage. Option(b) is opposite to the spirit of the passage.
