Solutions

S1. Ans. (d)
Sol. Sentence (C) and (E) makes a perfect match, the connection between C and E can be traced from the key words, “companies” and “workers.”
Deterrent- a thing that discourages or is intended to discourage someone from doing something.
Phrase (A) and (F) makes a perfect match. The connection between A and F can be traced from the key words, “fear” and “deterrent.”
Hence option (d) is the correct answer choice.

S2. Ans. (a)
Sol. Only phrases (C) and (F) make proper combination as the phrase, “less formal and more engaging work” used in sentence (C) makes a match with the phrase, “do away with rigid hierarchical structures.”
Hence option (a) is the correct answer choice.

S3. Ans. (c)
Sol. Only sentence (A) and (D) makes a perfect match as in sentence (A) has mentioned some new developed laws, policies and frameworks and in sentence (D) has mentioned that these will help realizing the young people their full potential. Hence option (c) is the correct answer choice.

S4. Ans. (b)
Sol. Only sentence (B) and (F) makes a perfect match.
Indebtedness- the condition of owing money.
Spate- a large number of similar things coming in quick succession.
Phrase (B) states increasing costs, decrease in income and pegged up condition of indebtedness these all conditions can be easily correlated with the succession of a large number of suicidal cases among the farmers that has been mentioned in the stanza (F).
Hence option (b) is the correct answer choice.

S5. Ans. (d)
Sol. Only sentence (C) and (E) makes a perfect match as both are talking about the investment schemes,
Phrase (C) has mentioned the investment schemes and phrase (E) as talked about the pattern of the interest rates in such schemes. None of the other two sentences make the meaningful coherent sense.
Hence option (d) is the correct answer choice.

S6. Ans. (c)
Sol. There is a grammatical error in part (B) ‘expect’ should be replaced with ‘expects’ because ‘s/es’ is used with the verbs of third person singular subjects. Apart from A-E, none of the given options makes a contextually correct sentence. Hence, option (c) is the correct answer.

S7. Ans. (c)
Sol. From the given options, B-F makes a contextual meaningful sentence but there is a grammatical error in that, ‘went’ should be replaced with ‘gone’ because of ‘has +V3’ sentence structure. And from the remaining options, only option (c) is able to make a contextual and meaningful sentence.

S8. Ans. (d)
Sol. From the given options C-D makes a meaningful sentence but there is a grammatical error in that sentence. ‘Being’ should be replaced with ‘since’ because ‘since’ is used to indicate cause. Also, A-F makes a contextual and meaningful sentence. Hence, option (d) is the correct answer.

In part (E) ‘a’ should be replaced with ‘an’ and in option (F) article ‘the’ should be placed before slowest because ‘the’ is used before superlative degree. And option (D) fails to make a meaningful sentence with the remaining options. Hence, option (e) is the correct answer.

S11. Ans. (b)
Sol. ‘Focus’ takes preposition ‘on’ after it . so, option (b) the most appropriate choice.

S12. Ans. (a)
Sol. Only (C) and (D) make a meaningful and grammatically correct sentence. The sentence is talking about BJP asking its legislators to attend the swearing –in. Moreover preposition ‘to’ is always followed by first form of verb.(C) and (E) make a grammatically correct sentence because ‘to’ is followed by first form of verb but it is not meaningful hence option (a)is the most appropriate choice.

S13. Ans. (a)
Sol. The grammatically correct and meaningful sentences are :
The moon-bound Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft is scheduled to undergo a crucial orbit manoeuvre around 9.30 a.m. on Tuesday morning . ( preposition ‘to’ is always followed by first form of verb)
People across the length and breadth of the country made sacrifices in one way or the other.
(This sentence is talking about people making sacrifice in different ways.)
Hence , the obvious choice is option (a).
