Solutions

S1. Ans. (c)
Sol. The use of ‘Reversal’ and ‘Consortium’ here is incorrect because ‘Reversal’ which means a change to an opposite direction, doesn’t make a contextually meaningful sentence and ‘Consortium’ which means an association typically of several companies, is also inappropriate at its place. So replacing them (II) and (I) would make the sentence both grammatically and contextually correct. Hence, the correct answer is option (c).

S2. Ans. (a)
Sol. ‘Consequences’ means a result or effect, so the use of the given word doesn’t make a meaningful sentence. But, replacing it with ‘Priorities’ will make the sentence both meaningful and contextually correct. Hence, the correct answer choice would be option (a)

S3. Ans. (a)
Sol. The use of ‘Build’ here is incorrect because of the rule of parallelism, the verb connected with ‘and’ should be in same format. Also, the verb followed by ‘and’ should be in accordance with the subject before ‘and’. There is no error in the remaining words. Hence, the correct match would be B-III or option (a).

S4. Ans. (d)
Sol. The use of ‘Confidence’ and ‘delexical’ here is incorrect because ‘Confidence’ being a noun is not in accordance with sentence structure, instead it should be replaced by an adjective i.e. ‘Confident’. Also, ‘delexical’ means having little or no meaning in its own right, which doesn’t make any coherent sense as per the context of the given statement, instead it should be ‘deleverage’ which means reduce the level of one’s debt by rapidly selling one’s assets, which makes the given sentence meaningful. Hence, the correct answer choice would be option (d).

S5. Ans. (d)
Sol. The use of ‘Protocol’ here is incorrect because ‘protocol’ means the official procedure or system of rules governing affairs of state or diplomatic occasions, instead it should be ‘Covenant’ which means an agreement. Hence, the correct answer choice is option (d)

S6. Ans. (e)
Sol. Among the given starters, all of the options given make a logical and comprehensive sentence connecting both the sentences given as the question. Hence, option (e) is the most suitable answer choice. The correct statements thus formed will be:

“While the Centre has devoted greater attention to tertiary care and reduction of out-of-pocket expenses through financial risk protection initiatives such as Ayushman Bharat, several States remain laggards when it comes to creating a primary health care system with well-equipped PHCs as the unit.”

“Although the Centre has devoted greater attention to tertiary care and reduction of out-of-pocket expenses through financial risk protection initiatives such as Ayushman Bharat, several States remain laggards when it comes to creating a primary health care system with well-equipped PHCs as the unit”.

“Inspite of Centre’s greater attention to tertiary care and reduction of out-of-pocket expenses through financial risk protection initiatives such as Ayushman Bharat, several States remain laggards when it comes to creating a primary health care system with well-equipped PHCs as the unit”.

S7. Ans. (b)
Sol. Only the second starter can be used to frame a logical and comprehensive sentence connecting both the sentences given as the question. The other two starters are incorrect owing to their variable meanings. The correct statement thus formed will be:
“India has a trade deficit with as many as 11 of the RCEP countries, and it is the only one among them that isn’t negotiating a bilateral or multilateral free trade agreement with China at present.”

S8. Ans. (e)
Sol. Here, we will omit starter (iii) as it will form a grammatically incorrect statement. Among the given starters, none of them make a logical and comprehensive sentence connecting both the sentences given as the question. Hence, option (e) is the most suitable answer choice.

S9. Ans. (c)
Sol. Only the third starter can be used to frame a logical and comprehensive sentence connecting both the sentences given as the question. The other two starters are incorrect owing to their variable meanings. The correct statement thus formed will be:
“Amortisation-based valuation, which is completely detached from the market price of the securities being valued, allowed mutual funds to avoid the volatility associated with mark-to-market valuation.”

S10. Ans. (d)
Sol. Both the starters (ii) and (iii) can be used to connect the given set of two sentences to form a meaningful statement. However, starter (i) is incorrect as it would alter the meaning of the actual sentence. The correct statements thus formed will be:
“SEBI’s new regulatory norms come in the midst of the crisis in Infrastructure Leasing and Financial Services (IL&FS) that led to various fund managers reporting the value of the same debt instruments issued by the infrastructure lender at vastly different levels.”
“As a result of the crisis in Infrastructure Leasing and Financial Services (IL&FS) that led to various fund managers reporting the value of the same debt instruments issued by the infrastructure lender at vastly different levels, SEBI has issued new regulatory norms”.
