Congress leaders stress that this manifesto ________ the needs and ________ of the marginalised sections of society. 

Detailed Solution for Test: Filling in the Blank - 1 - Question 1

First word of all the options could fit the first blank grammatically as well as contextually, but the second word makes a difference here.

In option A, ‘inspirations’ seems contextually incorrect.   In option B, ‘requirements’ is redundant as it means the same as “needs”.

In option C, ‘aspirations’ absolutely fits the context as well grammar. Aspiration is different from ‘need’ in a way that “need“ refers to the necessities of an individual whereas ‘aspiration” is more about luxurious desires of an individual.
