Solutions

S1. Ans. (c)
Sol. The most appropriate set of words that fills the blanks of the paragraph is “Floor, Decisions and Bumper”. ‘Floor- a minimum level of prices or wages.’ provides the precise context.
Bumper- exceptionally large
All the other words are incoherent and fail to make the paragraph comprehensive. Hence, option (b) is the most suitable answer choice.

S2. Ans. (a)
Sol. The most appropriate word-set is “Robust, Boost and Outpacing”. ‘Robust’ is functioning as an adverb.
Outpacing means ‘go, rise, or improve faster than.’ The word appropriately satisfies the context of the third blank.
The correct word for the second blank is ‘Boost’
Hence, option (a) is the correct answer.

S3. Ans. (c)
Sol. The correct set of words are “suspended, speaking and debarred”. Driving license is something which could be suspended. So, the first and the third blank would be filled by the same word ‘suspended’. What can be done on mobile phones? One could speak on it. So, speaking is the correct word to fill the second blank.
Hence, option (c) is the correct answer.

S4. Ans. (d)
Sol. ‘Restrained’ is a more appropriate word than ‘initiated’ to fill the first blank. The High Court could have stopped or restrained the State government from initiating any kind of… rather than ‘initiated’ the State government from restraining any kind of…
Pursuant- in accordance with (a law or a legal document or resolution)
Hence, the correct answer is option (d).

S5. Ans. (d)
Sol. The appropriate set of words which would fill the blank is “robust, pursued, nascent”.
Robust means strong and healthy; vigorous.

Other words are irrelevant and do not coherently fit the blank.
