  1. After marketing(1) various positions in the footwear company’s occupying(2) division, he was promoted(3) to the director of retail(4) position in 2003.
    No correction required

  2. Annoyed(1) over persistent(2) damage staged(3) to their crops by stray cattle, several farmers caused(4) a protest in Punjab’s Faridkot.
    No correction required
    Cattles caused damage to crops and as a result farmers staged a protest. Hence, staged and caused should exchange places. Therefore, option A is the correct answer.


  3. One useful(1) way for art to stake a claim of being representative(2) would be to appear possible(3), even utilitarian(4).
    No correction required
    Option D
    “Possible” at 3 does not fit. Whereas, ‘useful’ makes sense perfectly. So useful and possible should be exchanged. Thus, the correct answer is option D.


  4. The key to battling(1) waste could be to symbiotic(2) the reinforce(3) relationship among citizens, litter and public(4) space.
    No correction required
    Option B
    At 2 after ‘to’ a verb is required. Also note that before the noun ‘relationship’ we need an adjective. So, exchanging reinforce and symbiotic would make the sentence both grammatically and contextually correct. Thus, the correct answer is option B.

    Option B
    Option A: ‘fired from U.S.’ doesn’t make any sense in place of the second highlighted word, hence it can be eliminated.

    ‘Spiralling’ means a situation getting worse or difficult. ‘Fired by the U.S.’ is the correct phrase here according to the meaning of the sentence.
    ‘Unveiled’ means to show something new to public for the first time. ‘Discourage’ means to stop somebody doing something.

    Option D: ‘globing’ makes the sentence incorrect.
    Option E: The given sentence doesn’t bring out a valid meaning, hence it is incorrect.
    Hence, option B is the correct answer.


  7. The events that lead (out) to the brutal (assassin) of two men in Uttar Pradesh’s Hapur district on the (boundary) of New Delhi is unclear – but one of them died and the other (unsustained) injuries.

    town or city that are furthest from the centre. ‘Sustained’ means to make something continue for a long period of time without becoming less.
    Option B: ‘lead in’ means ‘introduction’ which allows moving smoothly doesn’t make any sense here, hence it can be eliminated.
    Option C: ‘brutal’ means ‘extremely violent’ so using brutal violence is super􀁾uous here, hence it can be eliminated.
    Option D: ‘on the suburbs of New Delhi’ doesn’t make a proper sense, hence it can be eliminated.
    Option E: ‘Assassin’ is incorrect here because the word is a noun, while we need a verb to indicate the killing.
    Hence, option A is the correct answer.


  8. While the India-U.S. tariff (quarrel) could escalate, the amounts being discussed right now are (tiny) compared (of) those under threat in the unfolding U.S.- China situation or even the (dispute) between the U.S. and the EU.

    of, vicious, shape gentility
    of, murderous, avert, civilities
    No correction required
    Option C
    Option A: ‘killing on’ is grammatically incorrect, hence it can be eliminated.
    Option B: ‘avoid’ makes the sentence incorrect as the phrase “avoid prevention” does not make any sense.
    Option C: The given words make sense. ‘Vicious’ means cruel and is an appropriate phrase for “crowd”. “To give shape to an imagination” means
    to materialize a thought. ‘Gentility’ makes sense as killings indicate that the humans are losing gentility.
    Option D: ‘murderous crowd’ doesn’t make sense, nor does “give avert”.
    Option E: ‘assassination’ is a noun and cannot be used to modify the noun “crowd”. An adjective is required instead.


  10. Directions (9-10): In the given question, a sentence is divided into five parts out of which the last part is correct. Out of the remaining four, there is an error in one of the parts. Choose the part which has an error. If there is no error, mark E i.e. ‘All are correct’ as the answer.

    All the correct
    Option C
    In part C the adjective ‘significant’ is used to describe the verb ‘harming’. This is a grammatical error as adverbs should be used to describe verbs, not adjectives. So, it should be significantly in part C. So, the correct answer is C.

    All are correct
    Option A

    There is no need for the auxiliary verb ‘is’. The correct alternative is: The growing demand for forest-risk. Hence, the correct answer is A.
