S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. Among all the options, very clearly, option (c) is the only appropriate choice. The sentence suggests that just like any other 5-year-old girl, Disha is a fussy eater. (d) & (e) are irrelevant; (b) cannot be used as just after the blank, singular ‘old’ is used and not plural ‘olds’; Also, ‘the’ cannot be used as no 5-year-old girl has been introduced here. It only talks about some general 5-year-old girl.

S2. Ans.(a)

Sol. ‘taking care’ makes grammatical as well as contextual sense here and hence option (b) is the correct answer choice.

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. The sentence says that Disha’s mother sneaks some spinach leaves into whatever Disha wants to eat. Hence option (c) is the correct choice. Option (a) is incorrect as ‘she’ is singular and instead of ‘like’, ‘likes’ would come with it.
