  1. Direction(1-10):In each of the following questions, a sentence is given with the phrase or idiom highlighted in bold. Select the option given below that cannot replace the phrase in bold and mark that as your answer. In case none of the phrases can replace the original phrase, mark none as your answer.

    1. Question

    The appeal is obvious: in our busy lives, an easily accessibly app that promises to help us get a hold with our mental health seems like the perfect solution.

    Ans:1
    The correct idiom is ‘get a hold of’, which will rule out the original phrase. The only word which will not make a lot of sense in the given context is ‘propose’ – ‘propose our mental health’ to/for what? Hence, option A will be the right answer.

  2. 2. Question

    The question of whether it is right or wrong to hold these animals in captivity has long been a point of contending.

    Ans: 3
    The correct idiom is ‘a point of contention’ which means a point advanced or maintained in a debate or argument. All the options are correct but ‘explored’ in option C will not require ‘of’. Hence, option C will be the right answer.

  3. 3. Question

    A restrictive policy environment in India is proving of being a hurdle for local production of Tesla cars, says Elon Musk on Twitter

    Ans:1 
    The grammatically correct idiom is ‘proving to be a hurdle for’. Although ‘frustrate’ is also a synonym of obstruction, it won’t be contextually correct here. Because all the other options are correct, option A will be the right answer.

  4. 4. Question

    Bundled offering make a lot of sense since the ability of telcos to monetize their infrastructure has fallen considerably, with competition forcing tariffs down drastically.

    Ans:4 
    Both the original phrase and option D will be incorrect because the subject is singular – offering; hence, singular verb is required. Since all the other options are correct, option D will be the right answer. ‘Decisive’ means settling an issue.

  5. 5. Question

    We can’t do more about our vocal quality without extensive singing lessons to control our breathing and pitch.

    Ans: 4
    The correct phrase would be ‘do much about’. ‘Extrapolate’ means to extend the application of (a method or conclusion) to an unknown situation. Now, this will find no relevance here. Hence, option D will be the right answer.

  6. 6. Question

    Three days went on, by which time, Buck and his mates found how really tired and weak they were.

    Ans:1 
    The phrase ‘went on by’ means passed. Elapse – pass. Finish – end. Vanish – disappear. We need the past tense of the verb to fit grammatically in the sentence, so B is incorrect as it is in simple present tense. Among the remaining words, A is the right answer.

  7. 7. Question

    I do not understand what you are getting at, by claiming that my son was present at the scene of the crime.

    Ans:2 
    Deriving – concluding. Implying – suggest indirectly. Deploy – bring into effective action. Revert – reply. The phrase ‘get at’ means to imply or suggest. B is the right answer.

  8. 8. Question

    Everyone is trying to get out of working on Christmas Eve, so I’ve decided to officially declare it a holiday.

    Ans:3 
    Recover – to get over a disease or a problem. Perceive – feel. Avoid – to not do or be a part of something. Devour – enjoy or eat. The phrase ‘get out of’ means to avoid doing something. C is the right answer.

  9. 9. Question

    Whoever has written this spiteful letter must come to my office by today evening and own up, or else I am punishing the whole lot of you.

    Ans: 1
    Confess – admit one’s fault. Profess – claim, often falsely. Suppress – to restrain. The phrase ‘own up’ means to admit one’s fault. A is the right answer.

  10. 10. Question

    We tried our best to put out the fire in the kitchen, but were unable to, and had to press the fire alarm.

    Ans: 4
    Evince – indicate. Sanction – allow. Affirm – declare. Extinguish – to quench a fire. The phrase ‘put out’ means to cause a fire to stop burning. D is the right answer.
