    1. (d) Though I had been his friend for quite a long time, I refused to help him because of his ill nature.

      Put ‘of’ after ‘because’. Because+of+Noun/Because+S+V….

    (e)None is true.

    (e) None is true

    1. (b)With a rise in population, man needed more space for growing crops and for building houses.

    2. (c) The boys made off when the owner of the garden appeared.

      Use ‘off’ in place of ‘up’ because mark off means run away , while ‘make up’ means to decide.

  16. Complete the paragraph

    (…………………………………………………………..). This is hardly unusual: pensions were at the centre of bail-out negotiations six years ago and they were there in the summer when Greece nearly got kicked out of the eurozone. Since 2010 entitlements have been cut at least ten times while the system has been reformed at least four. With a new scheme now in the works, which would protect those who have already retired while increasing social security and tax payments for many groups of workers, Greeks are once again blaming politicians, while politicians are blaming Greece’s creditors for making them impose harsh measures.

    A) The problem of an ageing population was not unique to Greece.
    B) As Greece’s workforce along with its gross domestic product (GDP) shrank, the number of pensioners grew.
    C) Pension spending, which constituted 17.5% of GDP in 2012, is projected to reach 25% of GDP by 2050.
    D) Greeks are on the streets protesting against pension reforms
    E) In the years between 2000 and 2014 Greece spent €200 billion on state subsidies to prop up social insurance pensions, approximately two thirds of the country’s public debt.

    1. Option D introduces the subject of the passage. Reforms against Pension.

  17. Complete the paragraph

    JAPANESE ten-year bonds have joined the long list of government securities with a negative yield, offering minus 0.04% a year(………………………………………………………….)Bloomberg estimates that nearly 30% of the global government bond market is trading on a negative yield; there are even some corporate bonds in the same position. So why on earth should investors sign up to lose money?

    A) In practice, that means investors who buy the bond now, and hold it until maturity, will have less money than they started with.
    B) The second group of bond buyers are those who think that it is possible to make money despite the negative yields.
    C) Japanese bonds are denominated in yen.
    D) A big currency gain would more than offset the negative yield.
    E) The third source of buying comes from anxious investors who prefer a small loss on government bonds to a much bigger loss elsewhere.

    1. A) In practice, that means investors who buy the bond now, and hold it until maturity, will have less money than they started with.

  18. Zika was found in a human for the first time in 1952, in Uganda.(………………………………………………………). It may have been circulating among monkeys and other animals in the jungle for thousands of years, making the jump to humans relatively recently, carried by mosquitoes. In that regard, Zika is hardly unusual: six in ten infectious diseases in humans have been spread from animals.

    A) During the second half of the 20th century, Zika was documented in a handful of people in Africa and Asia.
    B) The virus was discovered in 1947, in a rhesus monkey in the Zika forest near the shore of Lake Victoria in Uganda.
    C) Nobody knows for sure where or when it began to infect humans
    D) In that regard, Zika is hardly unusual: six in ten infectious diseases in humans have been spread from animals.
    E) Zika may have been infecting many people in Africa for years, staying under the radar of patchy health systems and poor disease surveillance along with any serious health problems that it may have been causing.

    1. C) Nobody knows for sure where or when it began to infect humans

  19. The term “shadow bank” was coined in 2007 by Paul McCulley of PIMCO, a big bond fund to describe risky off-balance-sheet vehicles hatched by banks to sell loans repackaged as bonds. (………………………………………………)These include mobile payment systems, pawnshops, peer-to-peer lending websites, hedge funds and bond-trading platforms set up by technology firms. Among the biggest are asset management companies. In 2013 investment funds that make such loans raised a whopping $97 billion worldwide.

    A) Companies looking for cash also lean on bond markets that offer extraordinarily low interest rates.
    B) Money-market funds that invest in short term securities like US treasury bills have taken off too.
    C) Today, the term is used more loosely to cover all financial intermediaries that perform bank-like activity but are not regulated as one.
    D) The Financial Stability Board, an international watchdog estimates that globally, the informal lending sector serviced assets worth $80 trillion in 2014 up from $26 trillion more than a decade earlier.
    E) Shadow banks have flourished in part because the traditional ones, battered by losses incurred during the financial slump, are under pressure.
