Directions (1-10): In each of the questions given below two sentences are given. Both the sentences have a blank which must be filled by the one of the options following the two sentences. The correct choice must fill both the blanks.

1. Question

(I) My genetic makeup is as ___________ as that of my homeland.
(II) The Increased choices have _____________ the matters for the consumer.

Ans: 2
‘complicated’ is the correct fit for both the blanks. ‘Complicated’ is used as an adjective in the first sentence, which means ‘complexity’ whereas in sentence (II), it is used as a verb that means
‘confusing’. ‘asserted’ means a state a fact or belief confidently and forcefully. Other options are not making the sentences meaningful.

2. Question

(I) God, acting as a good king and a true father, has given us a will which cannot be ___________, compelled or thwarted.
(II) __________ public expenditure is required in order to avoid any tax evasion.

Ans: 5
‘Restrained’ is the best fit here. It can be used as an adjective and a verb. It is used as an adjective in the first sentence while as a verb in the second sentence. As an adjective, it means ‘controlled’ or ‘guarded’ whereas as a verb it means ‘prevent’, ‘impede’ or ‘obstruct’.

3. Question

(I) Mr Charles Green was commissioned to ________ the astronomical observations, and Sir Joseph Banks and Dr Solander were appointed botanists to the expedition.
(II) I am proud to say that I made it completely through school without receiving a censure for my ________________!

Ans: 3
‘conduct’ is the correct word to be filled in the blank making the sentence meaningful. Here ‘conduct’ is used both as a noun and as verb. As a noun, it means the manner in which a person behaves, especially in a particular place or situation, while as a verb, it means to lead or guide (someone) to or around a particular place. Hence option (c) is the correct choice. All other options are irrelevant here.

4. Question

(I) Be sure to ______ authorship of the posting to the posting party.
(II) Not even intelligence can be a/an ________ of the divine Being.

Ans: 2
‘attribute’ is the best suited option for the blank. Attribute means ‘regard something as being caused by’ or ‘allocate’, ‘assign’, when used as a verb while as a noun, it means a quality or feature regarded as a characteristic or inherent part of someone or something. In sentence (I), attribute will be used as a verb while as a noun in sentence (II). Hence option (b) is the correct one.

5. Question
(I) The only reason she could think of was that the man didn’t want anyone to ___________ him.
(II) “If you’re as smart as I _________, you’ve probably used your gift to figure out where I am,” he said.
Ans: 1
In sentence (I), ‘suspect’ is used as ‘adjective’ which means not to be relied on or trusted; possibly dangerous or false, ‘suspicious’, ‘doubtful’.
In sentence (II), ‘suspect’ is used as to have an idea or impression of the existence, presence, or truth of (something) without certain proof, ‘feel’, ‘guess’.

6. Question
(I) The Justices will hopefully focus their ____________________ on where the nation should draw the line between personal privacy and the national interest.
(II) They waited for him from four till six o’clock and did not begin their ____________________ all that time but talked in low tones of other matters.
Ans: 5
Option (e) is the correct choice. ‘Deliberations’ is a noun which means a long and careful consideration or discussion. Thus, it satisfies both the sentences and provides meaning to them. However, the word ‘applications’ may satisfy the first sentence but it fails to provide meaning to the second sentence. Therefore, the word ‘deliberations’ fits aptly to both the blank and proves to be the correct choice.

7. Question
(I) The term ‘politicals’ referred to the officers of the _____________ Political Department, the precursor of our present foreign office under the Raj.
(II) I hadn’t dreamt nor I _______________ about the horrific accident.
Ans: 4
Option (d) is the correct choice. The word ‘fabled’ can be used as an adjective as well as a verb . In the first sentence the word ‘fabled’ is used as an adjective which means famous, especially by reputation whereas; in the second sentence it is used as a second form of the verb ‘fable’ which means here to tell fictitious tales. Thus, it satisfies both the sentences and provide appropriate meaning to it.

8. Question

(I) The significantly widened tax base and higher ____________ post-demonetisation and GST should allow for some concessions, particularly to those not resorting to any evasion.
(II) Since the restaurant is not in _________________ with food safety laws, it will be closed down until the owner can bring it up to code.

Ans: 1
Option (a) is the correct choice. ‘compliance’ is a noun which means the action or fact of conformity with a wish or command . ‘Reverberate’ means to have continuing and serious effects. ‘Rumble’ means to make a continuous deep, resonant sound. ‘Resonate’ means to produce or be filled with a deep, full, reverberating sound. Thus, the only word that is making both the sentences grammatically and meaningfully correct is ‘compliance’, therefore, it proves to be the right choice.

9. Question
(I) There is no tax on capital ____________ from sale of equity shares or equity mutual fund units, when such sales are after 12 months of their purchase/investment.
(II) If a thief can rob him of the elixir he ___________ supernatural powers.
Ans: 1
Option (a) is the correct choice. The only word that aptly fits the blank in both the sentences is ‘gains’ . In the first sentence ‘gains’ is used as a noun which means an increase in wealth or resources. However, in the second sentence the word ‘gains’ is used as a verb which means to obtain or secure (something wanted or desirable). Therefore, it makes the most suitable choice for the blank in both the sentences.

10. Question
(I) ___________ on the bridge were delayed by 4 weeks due to bad weather.
(II)She ____________ part-time at the restaurant.
