Solutions

S1.Ans.(a)
Sol. ‘Hardly…. When’ is used as conjunction in a sentence.

S2. Ans.(d)

S3. Ans.(d)

S4. Ans.(a)

S5. Ans.(d)

S6. Ans. (b)
Sol. To ‘brook’ is ‘to tolerate’ or ‘put up with’. ‘Suffer’ in option (d) will suit the first blank but ‘fortitude’ will not fit the second blank.

S7. Ans. (b)
Sol. ‘Rather’ means here ‘more truly’ or ‘as a more accurate description’. ‘However’, ‘moreover’ and ‘in addition’ will not suit the first blank. So only (b) is the answer.

S8. Ans. (c)
Sol. ‘Clemency’ is ‘mercy’; to be ‘unmoved’ is to be not affected by emotion’.

S9. Ans. (b)
Sol. An ‘incorrigible’ liar is one who is utterly given to lying and who cannot be easily improved. ‘Plausible’ (adj.) is ‘seemingly reasonable or probable’ but not really so. ‘Congenial’ means ‘agreeable’. ‘Convincing’ and ‘blatant’ in options (c) and (d) will suit the first blank but ‘illogical’ and ‘incongruous’ in the same options will not suit the meaning of the given sentence.

S10. Ans. (d)
