Solutions

S1. Ans. (a)
Sol. Going through the given sentences we can make pair of sentences on the basis of the sense they are conveying. For example, (A) will be followed by (G) because (A) is talking about the steps taken by Government which is being carried forward in (G). The next logical pair would be (D) followed by (B) because the sentence (D) is talking about the reason of negative trend in emerging markets this is further supported by the rate cut by Federal Reserve as can be understood by the phrase ‘played the spoilsport’. Next pair would be (F) followed by (C) because (C) is highlighting the factors responsible for the fall in stocks as discussed in (F). Having made three pairs (A)(G), (D)(B) and (F)(C). However (E) fails to make a coherent sense with anyone. Now to select the first sentence in the arrangement we have to choose from (A), (D) and (F). But (D) cannot be the first sentence in the rearrangement because of the use of the starter ‘While’. From the remaining two (F) definitely will be the first sentence in rearrangement because in (A) the phrase ‘added fuel to the fire’ gives the hint that some incident must have taken before it and hence cannot be the first sentence. So the correct sequence after rearrangement will be FCAGDB. Hence, the correct answer choice is option (a)

S2. Ans. (d)
Sol. Going through the given sentences we can make pair of sentences on the basis of the sense they are conveying. For example, (A) will be followed by (G) because (A) is talking about the steps taken by Government which is being carried forward in (G).

S4. Ans. (b)
Sol. Going through the given sentences we can make pair of sentences on the basis of the sense they are conveying. For example, (A) will be followed by (G) because (A) is talking about the steps taken by Government which is being carried forward in (G).

S5. Ans. (c)
Sol. From the given sentences, only option (c) is able to make a coherent sense in the rearrangement because the given sentence is talking about the downfall in the market by supporting it with providing facts and figures whereas remaining options fail to do so. Hence, the correct answer choice is option (c)

S6. Ans. (c)
Sol. Here, the error lies in the statement given in option (c), where “pulled in” will be replaced by “pulled back”. “Pulled in” means “(of a vehicle) move to the side of or off the road” and “pulled back” means “to decide not to do something that will probably have bad effects”. Hence, option (c) is the most suitable answer choice.

S7. Ans. (c)
Sol. Here, the error lies in statement given in option (c), where the use of “all” before “yearly expenses” is superfluous. Hence, option (c) is the most suitable answer choice.

S8. Ans. (c)
Sol. Here, the error lies in statement given in option (c), where, “honestness” will be replaced with “honesty” because “honest” is an adjective, whose noun form is “honesty” and not honestness”. Hence, option (c) is the most suitable answer choice.

S9. Ans. (e)
Sol. All the sentences given above are correct and do not require any improvements. Hence, option (e) is the most suitable answer choice.

S10. Ans. (b)
Sol. Here, the error lies in statement given in option (b), where “a just” will be replaced with “just a”. Hence, option (b) is the most suitable answer choice.
