Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 1

A

Detailed Solution for Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 1

If we observe the choices given here closely, we can deduce that both ‘flourish’ and ‘grow’ are
synonyms and it implies that neither of them could fill in the blank. This eliminates option A and C
immediately.

Usage of ‘living’ for the blank would be grammatically incorrect.

‘Survive’ which means ‘continue to live or exist, especially in spite of danger or hardship’ seems to fill in
the blank most appropriately and usage of the verb ‘needed’ in the sentence confirms it in the context
of the passage.

Option D is hence the correct answer

Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 2

B

Detailed Solution for Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 2

If we observe carefully, we can find that presence of the article ‘an’ right before the blank confirms
that only a word starting with a vowel sound can fill in the blank. Therefore, option A gets eliminated
immediately.
Further, neither of the words ‘unwanted’ and ‘awkward’ makes sense if filled in the blank.
The word ‘innate’ which means ‘inborn or natural’ fills in the blank most appropriately.
Option B is hence the correct answer.

Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 3

C

Detailed Solution for Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 3

None of the words ‘strength’, ‘prowess’ and ‘relations’ seems to fit in the context of the sentence.
Only the word ‘comfort’ goes well with the context and it is confirmed if we observe the next sentence
in the same paragraph;
In addition, we seek an environment that is psychologically comfortable: for example, environments
that are familiar, but offer the right amount of stimulus.
Hence, option D is the correct answer.

Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 4

D

Detailed Solution for Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 4

‘Feedback’ is something that a customer gives after experiencing a product or service. Usage of it for
the blank doesn’t make any sense. This makes option B invalid.
‘Grievance’ is a negative work whereas the sentence is written in a positive tone. This is also a weak
choice for the blank.
‘Cycle’ is absolutely absurd in the context.
‘Experience’ is clearly the best choice here for the blank as it goes well with the context.
Option A is hence the correct answer.

Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 5

E

Detailed Solution for Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 5

In the given context of the passage, none of the available choices is appropriate for the blank.
Either ‘equally’ or ‘quite’ would have been correct here for the blank.
Evidently, option E is the correct here.

Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 6

A

Detailed Solution for Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 6

In the passage difficulties faced by farmers have been discussed. It mentions the need of agriculture in
India to become more sustainable. The reason behind this is to help small and marginal farmers to
build resilience against many threats. This means they are facing problems currently.
‘Resilience’ means capacity to recover quickly from difficulties. In the context of the passage, only
Option C i.e. ‘struggle’ fits in.
Hence option C is the correct answer.

Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 7

B

Detailed Solution for Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 7

In the sentence, the plight of farmers’ obligation towards traders has been mentioned.
‘Beholden’ means feeling you have a duty to someone because they have done something for you. In
the given context, it implies the sense of being trapped.
Hence option B is the correct answer.

Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 8

C

Detailed Solution for Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 8

In the blank we need appropriate adjective for an agriculture practice.
Among given options, only suitable word is ‘Intensive’ which in regard to agricultural practices
imply, aiming to achieve maximum production within a limited area, especially by using chemical and
technological aids, a practice which has added to water stress and decline in soil health.
Hence option E is the correct answer.

Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 9

D

Detailed Solution for Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 9

We need to fill the blank with a noun.
Among the given options, only ‘irrigation’ is a relevant noun, eliminating options B, D and E.
Farmers use groundwater/water mainly for irrigation.
Hence option A is the correct answer.

Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 10

E

Detailed Solution for Test: Cloze Test- 3 - Question 10

Farmers use fertiliser to increase the level of nutrients in soil.
'Boost' means increase. 'Accelerate' means increase in rate, amount, or extent and hence is
inappropriate.
‘Deplete’ means diminish in number or quantity, which gives us negative sense.
Hence Option E is the correct answer.
