Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 1

Constance was _____ by the speech, regarding such criticisms of her company as extremely annoying

Detailed Solution for Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 1

Option b is correct which is exactly synonym for annoying as Galled also means annoying or resentful.
Option. A, c, d, e all are not synonym of annoying.

Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 2

Given below is a sentence with three underlined parts labelled (a), (b) and (c). Find out whether there is any error in any of these parts. If you find no error, your response should be indicated as (d):

Work hard (a) / lest you do not (b) / fail (c) / No error (d)

Detailed Solution for Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 2

Option B: The error lies in part (b): 'lest you do not'. The correct form is 'lest you should'.
'Lest' means 'in order to prevent any possibility that something will happen'.
The sentence means 'work hard, so you avoid failure'. The word 'lest' is most usually followed by 'should'. Also, 'lest you do not fail' has a meaning that is vague and different from the intended meaning. (Work hard so you avoid 'not failing'.)
So, the option with the error is option B.
Options A and C do not have errors. Option D is incorrect as the sentence has an error.

Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 3

Direction: Choose the incorrect part of the sentence.

Q. Considering the case on it's merits I am inclined to dismiss it right away.

Detailed Solution for Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 3

Here, the contraction 'it's' is incorrect and doesn't make sense in the given context of the sentence which requires the possessive 'its'. Thus part B is incorrect.

Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 4

Given below is a sentence with three underlined parts labelled (a), (b) and (c). Find out whether there is any error in any of these parts. If you find no error, your response should be indicated as (d):

Neither praise nor blame (a) / seem (b) / to affect him (c) / No error (d)

Detailed Solution for Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 4

Option B: The error lies in part (b): 'seem', which is in plural form. The correct form of the verb is 'seems', i.e.,singular verb form.
Two singular subjects connected by neither/nor require a singular verb 'seems'.
The nouns 'praise' and 'blame' are the singular subjects, connected by 'neither/nor'. Hence they will take the singular verb form 'seems'.
The corrected sentence is: Neither praise nor blame seems to affect him.
So, the option with the error is option B.
Options A and C do not have errors. Option D is incorrect as the sentence has an error.

Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 5

Read the passage and accordingly, fill in the blank:

Here are a couple of generalizations about England that would be accepted by almost all observers. One is that the English are not gifted artistically. They are not as musical as the Germans or Italians. Painting and sculpture have never flourished in England as they have in France. Another is that as Europeans go, the English are not intellectual. They have a horror of abstract thought, they feel no need for any philosophy or systematic 'world-view'. Nor is this because they are 'practical', as they are so fond of claiming for themselves. One has only to look at their methods of town planning and water supply. Their obstinate clinging to everything that is out of date and a nuisance, a selling system that defies analysis and a system of weights and measures that is intelligible only to the compiler of arithmetic books, to see how little they care about mere efficiency. But they have a certain power of acting without taking thought. Their word-famed hypocrisy - their double-faced attitude towards the Empire, for instance - is bound up with this. Also, in moments of supreme crisis, the whole nation can suddenly draw together and act upon a species of instinct, really a code of conduct which is understood almost by everyone, though never formulated.

Q. The English ________.

Detailed Solution for Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 5

Option A is the right answer because it is clearly mentioned in the passage that - 'Their obstinate clinging to everything that is out of date and a nuisance,'
Obstinate clinging means they stubbornly hold on to outdated things.
There is no evidence in the passage to suggest that Options B, C, and D are the right answers.
Hence, these are incorrect.

Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 6

Read the passage and answer the question that follows. 

Here are a couple of generalizations about England that would be accepted by almost all observers. One is that the English are not gifted artistically. They are not as musical as the Germans or Italians. Painting and sculpture have never flourished in England as they have in France. Another is that as Europeans go, the English are not intellectual. They have a horror of abstract thought, they feel no need for any philosophy or systematic 'world-view'. Nor is this because they are 'practical', as they are so fond of claiming for themselves. One has only to look at their methods of town planning and water supply. Their obstinate clinging to everything that is out of date and a nuisance, a selling system that defies analysis and a system of weights and measures that is intelligible only to the compiler of arithmetic books, to see how little they care about mere efficiency. But they have a certain power of acting without taking thought. Their word-famed hypocrisy - their double-faced attitude towards the Empire, for instance - is bound up with this. Also, in moments of supreme crisis, the whole nation can suddenly draw together and act upon a species of instinct, really a code of conduct which is understood almost by everyone, though never formulated.

Q. The English are ________. 

Detailed Solution for Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 6

According to the eleventh sentence, the double-faced attitude of the English towards their Empire is highly hypocritical. This implies that the English are hypocrites. Hence, A is correct.
The English do not think philosophy is needed to lead a life. It doesn't mean they do not have any principles at all. People without principles cause a lot of harm to people around them and the passage doesn't seem to suggest the English behave in a wrongful manner. Thus, C is wrong.
B and D are incorrect.

Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 7

Read the passage and accordingly, fill in the blank:

Here are a couple of generalizations about England that would be accepted by almost all observers. One is that the English are not gifted artistically. They are not as musical as the Germans or Italians. Painting and sculpture have never flourished in England as they have in France. Another is that as Europeans go, the English are not intellectual. They have a horror of abstract thought, they feel no need for any philosophy or systematic 'world-view'. Nor is this because they are 'practical', as they are so fond of claiming for themselves. One has only to look at their methods of town planning and water supply. Their obstinate clinging to everything that is out of date and a nuisance, a spelling system that defies analysis and a system of weights and measures that is intelligible only to the compiler of arithmetic books, to see how little they care about mere efficiency. But they have a certain power of acting without taking thought. Their word-famed hypocrisy - their double-faced attitude towards the Empire, for instance - is bound up with this. Also, in moments of supreme crisis, the whole nation can suddenly draw together and act upon a species of instinct, really a code of conduct which is understood almost by everyone, though never formulated.

Q. Their spelling system _________. 

Detailed Solution for Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 7

Option A: It's mentioned in this line: "a spelling system that defies analysis."
By the phrase 'defies analysis', we mean that 'it is difficult or challenging to analyze'. ('defy' means 'challenging')
It simply means that the spelling system cannot be analyzed.
Hence option A is correct.
Option B: 'Cannot be understood' is not a suitable option, as these words have not been written in relation to the 'spelling system'.
According to these lines, 'system of weights and measures that is intelligible only to the compiler of arithmetic books', 'intelligible' means 'comprehensible, understandable', and relates to the system of weights and measures.
Hence option B is incorrect.
Option C: This line does not convey what the line in the passage means.
'Cannot be found' refers to something that is lost, and the spelling system isn't lost. So, option C is incorrect.
Option D is incorrect because the answer lies in A.

Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 8

Read the passage and answer the question that follows.

The psychological causes of unhappiness, it is clear, are many and various. But all have something in common. The typical unhappy man is one who, having deprived in youth of some normal satisfaction, has come to value this one ' kind of satisfaction more than any other, and has therefore given to his life a one-sided direction, together with a quite undue emphasis upon the achievement as opposed to the activities connected with it. There is, however, a further development which is very common in the present day. A man may feel so completely thwarted that he seeks no form of satisfaction, but only distraction and oblivion. He then becomes a devotee of "pleasure". This is to say, he seeks to make life bearable by becoming less alive. Drunkenness, for example, is temporary suicide-the happiness that it brings is merely negative, a momentary cessation of unhappiness. 

Q. What does "becoming less alive" imply?

Detailed Solution for Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 8

As the author says, "A man may feel so completely thwarted that he seeks no form of satisfaction, but only distraction and oblivion. He then becomes a devotee of 'pleasure'. This is to say, he seeks to make life bearable by becoming less alive." So, he starts living in his own world of distractions. So, the answer is option C.

Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 9

Given below is a sentence with three underlined parts labelled (a), (b) and (c). Find out whether there is any error in any of these parts. If you find no error, your response should be indicated as (d):

A time slot of fifteen minutes (a) / are allowed (b) / to each speaker. (c) / No error (d) 

Detailed Solution for Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 9

Option B: The error lies in part (b): 'are allowed', which is in plural form. The correct form of the verb is 'is allowed', i.e., singular verb form.
'Each' in 'each speaker' is a singular determiner, which refers to every single speaker in particular. So, the verb too will be in singular form 'is allowed'. When the subject is singular, the verb must also be singular. The same goes for plural subjects and their plural verbs.
Hence, the corrected sentence is: A time slot of fifteen minutes is allowed to each speaker.
So, the option with the error is option B.
Options A and C do not have errors. Option D is incorrect as the sentence has an error.

Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 10

The iridescent nature of opals is a result of water trapped inside silica material. With time, this water will escape. Unlike advice given for most precious stones, experts advocate frequent handling of opals, which transmit body oils to the stones and helps them maintain their  water content.

Q. Which of the following can be inferred from the passage?

Detailed Solution for Test: Reading Comprehension- 1 - Question 10

Option A is the correct answer because according to the statement , the iridescent (colourful) nature of opals is due to its water, and as the water content will be lost, they will lose their colour. 
Option B is incorrect because water gives opals their colour, not body oils, they only help them maintain their water content. 
Option C is incorrect because other stones require even more intensive care, here they only need to be exposed to body oils. 
Option D is incorrect because that is not mentioned in the passage.
