The machine rearranges the words and numbers in such a way that the words are arranged in descending order based on the number of vowels in the given word. If two words contain the same number of vowels, then they are arranged in alphabetical order from left to right in each step.

Numbers are arranged in decreasing order from left to right alternatively, even number first, followed by prime number alternatively.

Solution:

Directions (16-20): Each of the following questions has a paragraph from which the last sentence has been deleted. From the given options, choose the one that completes the paragraph in the most appropriate way. 


 Q16. The rise in carbon dioxide emissions is driving fundamental and dangerous changes in the chemistry and ecosystems of the world’s oceans. More than 30% of the carbon dioxide released from burning fossil fuels, cement production, deforestation and other human activities goes straight into the oceans, turning them gradually more acidic. Ocean conditions are already more extreme than those experienced by marine organisms and ecosystems for millions of years.

Ocean acidification is caused when the CO_2 emitted by human activity, mainly burning fossil fuels, dissolves into the oceans.
Ocean acidification could represent a greater threat to the biology of our planet than global warming.
There is now persuasive evidence that mass extinctions in past Earth history were accompanied by ocean acidification.
This emphasizes the urgent need to adopt policies that drastically reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
Ocean acidification can create conditions not seen on Earth for at least 40 million years.
Solution:
Option (d). The paragraph introduced by “the rise in carbon dioxide emissions is driving fundamental and dangerous changes...” is closed smoothly when it is said that “reduce emissions.”

Q17. When people talk about the digital divide, they usually mean the gap between people who are benefiting from the information revolution, and those who through lack of education or money are missing out. But if there is one thing on which almost everybody agrees, it is that criminals are mastering computer technology much faster than most governments are learning to foil them. Rich countries say they are beset by fraudsters, pornographers and hackers operating from poor places where they will never be caught—because their “host” governments can’t or won’t stop them.
Consequently, international efforts to police the net remain deadlocked.
Consequently, the only winners are the criminals.
An accord launched at the Council of Europe aims to let authorities in one country give chase, at least electronically, to criminals in another.
Many countries like the idea of policing the net but not enough to push it through.
Policing the net, however, seems contrary to the essential philosophy of the internet.
Solution:
Option (a). The purpose of the paragraph is to state the problems that governments face in cyber crime—this has further led to criminals being the winners. From the point of the main purpose of the paragraph, option (a) scores over option (b) i.e., the one thing that everyone agrees is that criminals are faster because international efforts are deadlocked. Though option (b) comes very close, the point is that criminals are faster and not winners.

Q18. The book focuses on people that came from a place called “Chonglin”, N. Korea’s third–largest city and one of the places that were hardest hit by the terrible famine of the mid- 1990s. It is also almost entirely closed to foreigners. Funnily enough, North Korea hasn’t always been this hopeless. In its early history, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea was actually considered a success case in economic development. In the 1960s, the “Korean economic miracle” referred to the steel plants and electrified transport networks of the DPRK, but as South Korea embraced market reforms the chasm between North Korea and its neighbour grew wider.
For the most part North Korea remained a dark, inscrutable place.
South Korea grew richer while its neighbour to the North kept getting poorer.
By 1996, North Korea was in the grip of one of the deadliest famines in modern times.
South Korea became one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world while people in North Korea didn’t even have access to the internet.
One can only hope that one day North Korea will be open and we will be able to judge for ourselves what really happened there.
Solution:
Option (b). The paragraph leads us towards the difference between North and South Koreas. At least in the mid 1990s N. Korea was closed to “foreigners” and “hopeless.” The chasm grew wider—we now need to close the paragraph with a definitive difference between the two. Option (b) does this. Moreover, the last sentence should talk about S. Korea about which very little is said in the paragraph. Option (d) gets eliminated because of the emphasis of “internet”—a general sentence is much better. Hence option (b) scores.

Q19. She had had one of those boots. Ones that were so ugly they made you stand out. She had always hated her boots, but was one of those people who didn’t do much about things they hated. He on the other hand had found those boots unique, strange as they were. They suited her somehow, because just like her boots, she was ugly…
…yes, definitely the boots; they were an ugly colour actually.
… he remembered exactly how she looked like.
… that’s how she usually was weird and emotionally unavailable.
… in a more endearing way though.
… she appeared so intriguing, and of course, she was intriguing.
Solution:
Option (d). “He on the other hand had found those boots unique, strange as they were. They suited her somehow ...’ so, though she was ugly he finds her unique and strange. Paragraph is complete if his feelings are now stated explicitly. “ugliness” option (a), “weird” option (b), and “intrigue” option (e) are already implied and dealt with—his feelings of acceptance is not yet stated. Option (d) clearly states this and completes the paragraph.

Q20. In reality, scientists do not deal in certainty but in probabilities, and the way they calculate these probabilities is complex. For example; when testifying in court, a fingerprint expert may say that there is a 90% chance of obtaining a match if the defendant left the mark and a one in several billion chance of a match if someone else left it. In general DNA provides information of a higher quality or “individualizing potential” than other kinds of evidence, so that experts may be more confident of linking it to a specific individual.
However, jurors hold unrealistic expectations of forensic evidence and investigation techniques.
However, jurors today expect more categorical proof than forensic science is capable of delivering.
However, DNA experts still deal in probabilities and not certainties.
However, an unequivocal match of DNA is indeed generally just fiction.
However, jurors think they have a thorough understanding of science.
Solution:
Option (c). The direction of the paragraph is set by the first sentence. The experts however, have confidence in overriding the probabilities and link evidence (DNA) to a specific individual. However, science behind it is still based on probability. This is why the thirds option best closes the paragraph the purpose of which is set by the first sentence itself.
