The box containing Grapesfruit is kept immediately below black colour box and is of same colour as D. Box C is kept somewhere between N and O.Box O is below C.The two yellow boxes are kept vertically adjacent to each other.Orangefruit is kept exactly between M and the box containing Kiwifruit. O doesn’t contain Applefruit. There is gap of one box between the box U and box N, which is kept immediately below the box containing Grapesfruit. Box U is below the box N. The box containing Mangofruit is placed at even numbered place but is not placed at the bottom. The redcolour box which is kept at top either contains Apple or Pearfruit.

Directions (16-20): Each sentence below has one or two blanks, each blank indicating that something has been omitted. Beneath the sentence are five lettered words or sets of words. Choose the word or set of words for each blank that best fits the meaning of the sentence as a whole. 

Q16. The __________ of the desert explains why so many Egyptian mummies are still intact, whereas the humidity of the tombs in tropical rain forests supports the agents of decay so that few Aztec mummies have __________.
heat … survived
aridity … endured
dehydration … decayed
barrenness … proliferated
seclusion … surfaced
A good prediction for this sentence is: “The dryness of the desert explains why Egyptian mummies are still around, whereas the humidity in tropical rain forests explains why so few Aztec mummies have survived.” Predictions for both blanks are pretty precise, so start with either one. Looking for a word that means “dryness” for the first blank directs you to (b) and (c). Both aridity and dehydration mean “lacking in moisture,” but the second word in (c), decay, is the opposite of what you’re looking for. You need a word that means “survived.” (b), endured, is perfect. Hold onto (b) and check the others. The first word in (a), (d) and (e) eliminates these answers. All of these words may be true of the desert, but none of them means “dry.”

Q17. They __________ until there was no recourse but to __________ a desperate, last–minute solution to the problem.
berated … try
delayed … envision
procrastinated … implement
debated … maintain
filibustered … reject
Starting with the first blank because the prediction is pretty definite, (b) and (c) look good. Eliminate (b) because the second word, envision, that is, “predict or foresee,” does not convey the meaning of a solution. The second word in (c), implement, means “execute or achieve,” so (c) works well for both blanks. Based on the first word, (a), (d) and (e) can be eliminated. Of these three only (e), filibustered, suggests delaying, but even it has a more specific meaning that is not applicable here. To filibuster is to interrupt or delay something from occurring by engaging in activities such as long speeches and discourse.

Q18. The Wankel Rotary Engine was an engineering marvel that substantially reduced automobile exhaust emissions, but because it was less fuel–efficient than the standard piston–cylinder engine, it was __________ in the early 1970s when __________ pollution gave way to panic over fuel shortages.
needed … disillusionment with
conceived … attention on
modified … opinion on
abandoned … preoccupation with
discarded … interest in
Working with the first blank (c), (d) and (e) look good. While modified in the first blank of (c) makes sense, the second phrase, opinion on, is too broad. You’re not told if it was a positive or negative opinion that gave way or what direction it gave way to. This answer, then, is not precise enough and would not warrant modifying the engine. In (d), if a preoccupation with pollution gave way to panic over fuel shortages, that would explain way the engine was no longer valued. This is a much stronger phrase than opinion on. This is a much stronger phrase than opinion on. This looks like the best answer, but check the others to be sure. The second word in (e) does not fit the context. A mere loss of interest in pollution would not explain abandoning a marvelous engine. Eliminate (a) and (b) based on the first word in each, since neither of them suggests that the engine was rejected or changed in anyway.

Q19. Friendship, no matter how __________, has its boundaries; __________ advice, when thrust insistently upon one, is rarely an act of friendship, regardless of the adviser’s intent.
cool … contradictory
enjoyable … obverse
intimate … unsolicited
distant … marital
special … desired
A prediction for this sentence is: “All friendship, no matter how close, has boundaries; unwanted advice, when thrust upon someone, is rarely a sign of friendship.” Choice (c) looks good right away because the first word, intimate, matches your prediction of close, and the second word, unsolicited, is perfect, too. Choice (a) and (d) can be eliminated because the first word in each is the opposite of close. The first word in (b) and (e) might be all right if nothing else were better, but both can be eliminated on the basis of the second word in each. Obverse means “inside out or upside down,” which doesn’t make sense in this context, and desired is the opposite of your prediction.

Q20. Despite generous helpings of __________ from a group of __________ critics, this iconoclastic poet’s three volumes have sold steadily.
zeal … hidebound
mockery … obscure
tedium … respected
abuse … ineffectual
vitriol … influential
A good prediction, for the first blank at least is: “Despite negative responses from (some type) of critics, the poetry sold well”. Starting with the first blank since it is more precise, (e) seems to be just right. Vitriol means severe criticism, which would work in the first blank, and influential in the second blank explains why it’s surprising that these type of critics’ responses did not negatively impact the sales of the book. Run through the other answer quickly. From the first word, you can eliminate (a) because zeal is positive, and you need a negative word. Choice (c) does not fit well in the first blank either, because tedium may be defined as boredom. Receiving boring responses from the critics does not mean that the responses were negative. (b) and (d) can be eliminated because of the second word in each. It is not logical that the response of obscure or ineffectual critics would explain the contrast suggested by the word despite. If the critics have no influence, it would not be surprising that the books sold well. Look for a word that would justify the context clue despite.
