  9. Residents of Chand Bagh, a Muslim-dominated area, claimed that a mob had started _____________ stones from Bhajanpura towards their locality on Monday morning.
    a. Pelting
    b. Shooting
    c. Assailing
    d. Attacking
    a-b
    c-a
    b-d
    a-d
    c-b
    Option B
    The sentence talks about a Muslim-dominated locality called Chand Bagh, where a mob struck stones repeatedly from Bhajanpura. The manner of striking stones repeatedly can be said using the words assailing and pelting, both meaning throwing something at, or bombarding someone with something. Thus, the correct answer choice is B.
    The word shooting and attacking won’t go with stones, so it’s inappropriate if we use it here.

     

  10. In case of automated production lineslike automobiles, it might be easier to ________________ operations given there are fewer number of hands on the floor and it is easier to observe social distancing.
    a. Commence
    b. Withdraw
    c. Retaliate
    d. Initiate
    a-b
    b-c
    c-a
    c-d
    a-d
    Option E
    The given sentence talks about the automobiles sector and that the smaller number of people required to work in order to operate these sectors, ensures the required social distancing, thereby making it easy to carry out the operations. The two words commence and initiate would fit here, both indicating to start or carry out an operation. Whereas, withdraw means to remove or take away (something) from a particular place or position and retaliate means to make an attack in return for a similar attack, both unfitting the sentence contextually. Hence, the correct answer choice is E.

     

  11. _______________ the human influence on green house gas concentrations is challenging because many green house gases occur naturally in Earth’s atmosphere.
    a. Discerning
    b. Divulging
    c. Divesting
    d. Determining
    a-b
    b-d
    a-d
    c-a
    c-d
    Option C
    The sentence says that identifying the human influence on greenhouse gases is challenging because many of them occur naturally in the atmosphere of Earth. In this context, the two words that fit perfectly are discerning and determining. Divulging means to reveal secret information which doesn’t go with the meaning of the sentence here. Similarly, divesting means to deprive someone of power or rights or possessions and therefore doesn’t fit here either.

    a-c
    b-c
    a-d
    c-d
    a-b
    Option C
    In the given statement, the listed problems have been present throughout history. ‘Occurred’ which means something happened or took place is best fit for the given blank. ‘Transpired’ which is synonymous to ‘occurred’ and means something occurred or happened is the second word that can fit the blank. Hence, the answer is C.
    ‘Answered’ means to give reply to a question. ‘Provided’ means to make something available for use.
