    View Answer
      Option D
    Explanation: Option A seems to be correct as it talks about adverse impact on banking system. But in the next statement it is mentioned that the liquidity conditions remainded in line with the policy which means conditions were not bad. So Option A is not right.
    Option B is vague. This is because when a policy has not yet been framed, i.e the thing which is not yet present, how can one predict its outcome.
    Option C starts with SUCH. But as it is the first statement we cannot start with such.
    Option D suits the blank, as it talks about monetary policy, liquidity and also two distinct phase , all these three things are mentioned in the next sentences.
    Option E talks about stock market which showed positive growth in first half but collapsed in second, is not related with the passage. It may be due to some other reasons as well.

    View Answer
    Option B
    Explanation: Option A is vague as it says a point which is not supported by the passage.
    Option C, says that the programme will be implemented from the next fiscal year, however the next lin says that FIP has been making progress, which means that FIP is already in use. So Option C is invalid
    Option D, says bank make regular loss by it, then why will it make progress? So Option D is also not suitable.
    Option E is not valid as it talks about telecom sector.
    Option B tell something about FIP. It fits in the blank

  4. The government’s thrust on checking antibiotic resistance—against the backdrop of an American national dying of complications related to the NDM-1 superbug—is admirable. But the way it seems to be going about this seems quite ham-fisted. While the government mandated a ‘red line’ on the tablet-strip to indicate that a particular antibiotic wasn’t to be consumed or sold without a prescription, the problem is that even the so-called “weaker” antibiotics have the potential to drive up resistance. At the same time, lacking awareness, (…………………………………………………………). A 2011 WHO study showed that 53% of Indians were taking antibiotics without a prescription.
    A) doctors don’t prescribe antibiotics to the patients even when they are needed.

    D) being sick the patients are well aware of the side effects of using antibiotics
    E) conference must be organized to spread awareness about the harmful effects of antibiotics.
    View Answer
    Option C
    Explanation: Option A cannot be the answer. As the previous statement says that lacking awareness. Now if doctors are lacking awareness they will prescribe more unwanted antibiotics.
    Option B is also wrong as patients lack awareness so Option B does not fits.
    Option D is also wrong as it also says that patients are aware.
    Option E doesnot seems coherent with the previous phrase, LACKING AWARENESS.
    Option C suits the best.

    D) because such policies are a boon for highly progressive India.
    E) but India needs to adopt measures for implementing such forward-looking policies as well.
    View Answer
    Option E
    Explanation: The last sentence starts with Although. So Only A or C or E can fit.
    Option A cannot fit. It talks about some business.
    Option C talks about budget, so not valid.
    Option E fits the blank.
