(a)Only (I) is correct

(b)Only (II) is correct

(c)Only (III) is correct

(d)Both (I) and (III) are correct

(e)No correction required

Answer & Explanation
Ans. a

Exp. “releasing them in a controlled manner” is the correct phrase that should replace “release them in a controlled mannerto make the sentence grammatically correct. It is to be noted that the subject “Accepting our emotions…” is connecting with the other one with the help of the conjunction “and”; thus, as the rule implies, both the expression must be in the same form i.e. “release” should be replaced by “releasing”. Moreover, the word “controlled” signifies an adjective in this case. Hence among the given options, (a) is the correct choice.

  1. The present pattern of development and the rapid growth of the private sector had yielded higher profit to the investors, but not better health to individuals.

(I)might yield high profit to the investors

(a)Only (II) is correct

(b)Both (I) and (II) are correct

(c)Both (II) and (III) are correct

(d)All are correct

(e)No correction required

Answer & Explanation
Ans. c

Exp. Both the expressions “may yield higher profit to the investors” and “can yield higher profit to the investors” are the correct usage in the context of adding meaning to the sentence. It is to be noted that the subject “The present pattern …” suggests that the sentence is referring towards some present events; thus, the use of the verb “had yielded” is incorrectly matched with the subject-verb agreement. The correct verb in this case should be “may yield” or “can yield” as the pattern and meaning of the sentence expresses the possibility of yielding higher profit to the investors. Hence option (c) is the correct choice.

(b)Only (II) is correct

(c)Only (III) is correct

(d)Both (I) and (II) are correct

(e)No correction required

Answer & Explanation
Ans. b

The other two expressions are incorrect owing to their unsuitability to the correct grammar syntax of the given sentence. Hence option (b) is the correct choice to make the sentence grammatically correct.

Directions (6-10): In the passage given below there are blanks which can be filled with four of the five options given below without altering the meaning of the statement. Choose the most inappropriate word in each case which does not fit into the provided blank as your answer.

Coca-Cola India Pvt. Ltd is looking to (6) ___________ Thums Up—the country’s most successful carbonated beverage—in neighbouring countries such as Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and Nepal by the end of March, the company (7) ____________ in Kolkata on Friday. Launched in 1977 by Parle Agro Pvt.

In 1993, The Coca-Cola Co. returned to India and (9) ____________ rights to Thums Up, along with other Parle Agro brands such as Gold Spot and Mazaa, to take on Pepsi. Over the past quarter of a century, (10) ________ from Thums Up has been scaled up to around Rs6,000 crore and it is now poised to become a $1 billion brand, joining other Coca-Cola brands.

  1. (a) launch

(b) release

(c) actualise

(d) impede

(e) introduce

Answer & Explanation
Ans. d

Exp. Option (d) is the correct choice. The word required here is ‘launch’ or something similar in meaning to make the paragraph coherent whereas; ‘Impede’ as a verb here means to delay or prevent (someone or something) by obstructing them; hinder. Therefore, the correct answer that does not into fit the blank is option (d) i.e. impede.

  1. (a) announced

(b) declared

(c) publicized

(d) divulged

(e) obliterated

Answer & Explanation
Ans. e

Exp. Option (e) is the correct choice that doesn’t fit into the blank. All the other options are making an articulate sentence. The sentence makes a complete sense with the word ‘announced’ as the company is declaring about the launch of “Thums up”. Thus, all the words [except option (d)] similar in meaning with ‘announced’ will satisfy the blank. ‘Divulged’ is a verb which means to make known (private or sensitive information). ‘Obliterated’ is the past tense of the verb ‘obliterate’ which means to destroy utterly; wipe out.

  1. (a) trumping

(b) succumbing

(c) beating

(d) clinching

(e) surpassing

Answer & Explanation
Ans. b

Exp. Option (b) is the correct choice. The most suitable word for the blank is ‘trumping’ which is a verb and is used here as a gerund. It means to surpass (something) by saying or doing something better. ‘Beating’ means to defeat in a competitive situation. ‘Clinching’ means to confirm the winning or achievement of (a match, competition, or victory). ‘Surpassing’ means to be better than others. Hence, the only word left is option (b) ‘Succumbing’ which means to fail to resist pressure, temptation, or some other negative force. Therefore, ‘succumbing’ doesn’t fit into the blank appropriately.

  1. (a) blemished

(b) acquired

(c) captured

(d) seized

(e) obtained

Answer & Explanation
Ans. a

Exp. Option (a) is the correct choice as the word ‘blemished’ does not fit into the blank in a coherent manner. It is a verb which means to spoil the appearance or quality of (something). The paragraph expresses that Coca-cola has acquired the rights of Thums up along with few other companies. Thus, the most suitable word is ‘acquired’. In this paragraph the word acquired is expressing the action of seizing rights by Coca-cola of Thums up. ‘Seizing’ is a verb which means to take hold of suddenly and forcibly. Therefore, option (a) becomes the correct answer.

  1. (a) Revenues

(b) Earnings

(c) Profits

(d) Reparations

(e) fruits

Answer & Explanation
Ans. d

Exp. All the options except option (d) fit into the blank aptly. The most feasible word is ‘revenues’ which is similar in meaning with ‘earnings’, ‘profits’ and ‘fruits’. The word ‘fruits’ is used here as a metaphor which represents the positive result or reward of work or an activity. In this paragraph it means the increased profits earned by the company. ‘Reparations’ means the action of making amends for a wrong one has done, by providing payment or other assistance to those who have been wronged. Thus, it doesn’t fit into the blank aptly.
