  1. Access to funding for litigation has become a critical component of class action cases in Australia. This is because it provides the necessary financing for this form of expensive and complex litigation. Yet its unregulated nature may expose consumers to the risk of the funder becoming insolvent or simply failing to pay legal fees – or, if a class action is lost, the defendant’s costs. (……………………………………………………………………………)
    A) Consumers are reluctant to buy high priced goods as a result of this unregulated nature of the law.
    B) Funding to such parties must be stopped as it creates a lot of excess burden on the government.
    C) To create regulations that cover this, the courts and regulators need to pay attention to unsuccessful class actions.
    D) The judicial conflict over these executive orders highlights public opinion on both the role of the courts and the perception of conflict between national security and freedom of religion.

    View Answer
    Option C
    Explanation: The passage is about litigation funding. (A form of funding where a firm finances its costs through a third party. ) Class action in the passage means – (A “class action” lawsuit is one in which a group of people with the same or similar injuries caused by the same product or action sue the defendant as a group.)
    Now Option A is about high priced goods. Not the answer
    Option B, talks about funding to party, and this creates burden on government. But govt. is not responsible for funding.
    Option C tells the next step what should be done as per the context of the passage
    Option D talks about executive order and national security and religion. Option E talks about women judges and appointment of judges. SO not the answer.
  2. (……………………………………………………………………… ). The basic right of people to escape from war, persecution and poverty would be accepted as a given, and no one would have their life determined by their place of birth.

    View Answer
      Option B
    Explanation: The passage talks about how the world has become a restricted place to live in. The reason is international borders. We can get the blank statement by looking at the 2nd line after the blank i.e ” But we don’t live in this world ….” It means some sort of world has been already introduced earlier. Option B and Option C can fill the blank as per this condition. Between B and C, Option B suits the best as it talks exactly in coherence with the passage.
  3. The way traditional economics measures the environment, or in many instances doesn’t, is a long standing problem. For decades, our primary measure of economic activity, gross domestic product (GDP) has measured “progress” without accounting for the cost borne by the environment, nor the substantial benefits we receive from it. In politics and economics we regularly use the word “capital” to mean assets like buildings or cash. (…………………………………………………………..) Nature is an asset.
    A) Economics has made its way in everyone’s life.
    B) Assets are important for our survival.
    C) Interlinking of GDP and environment should be avoided.
    D) This decade long method should be abolished and a new system which inculcates technology must be introduced.
    E) This should extend to the environment too.
    View Answer
    Option E
    Explanation: Passage talks about considering environment and nature also while measuring the economic activity of a country. Option A is vague and does not matches with the next statement with the blank. Option B is also vague. Option C talks the opposite. Option D talks about introducing technology. Option E fits the blank and is also matching with the previous and the next sentence after the blank.
  4. (…………………………………………………………………………………). Hence, their sense of what’s happening in the economy has a flow on effect.If they feel confident, they might spend a bit extra or go into debt.

    View Answer
      Option C
    Explanation: The passage states that someone has a sense of what’s happening in the economy. Then the next line says that consumers must be surveyed, It means that the previous line was about consumers and they have sense of what is happening in the economy. So Option C is best suited. Option A talks about two subject i.e consumers and buyers, so it cannot be the answer.
