    admonishing the union gov. for delaying the appointment of a lokpal.the supreme court has sent across a timely message that efforts to cleanse the economy must be matched by equally strong measures to cleanse public life too.

    1) in..
    2) by…
    3) for…

    in this can’t we make sentence like this- for admonishing the union for delaying the appointments…..

    1. Suraj

      admonishing means to scold.. here by admonishing is correct..
      try to convert in hindi.. FOr admonishing will means that.. union govt ko scold krne k liye.. (jo msg diya hai wo scold krne k liye nhi diya hai,, wo msg to instruction hai… )

  5. Aakanksha Berwal

    In question 4, I suppose option E is out of context. It is talking about laws amd illegality of mining. Showing no resemblance to the theme!.

    1. Suraj

      see the passage is about the minerals hidden below the ice.. … and not the ice .. D) talks about how fast the ice is melting, rest all statement talks about the minerals. ..
      To solve such question, solve them like sentence arrangement, here sentence are already arranged. .. first find the theme, then start arranging, you will get one such sentence that will not get arranged, that is the answer,, you can find such examples in our newer posts…

      1. Aakanksha Berwal

        Look! A says people are interested in something that lies below Greenland, B says as ice melts mineral is coming within reach, but some factors makes this estimation difficult of how fast they are melting (D) followed by their essentiality (C); I agree E too talks about mineral, but it is more inclined towards the fact that it’s illegal! Which I believe isn’t apt!!.
