Test: Verbal Analogies- 1 - Question 1

In one of the greatest innings ever seen in 142 years of Test history, Ben Stokes upped the tempo in a five-and-a-half hour-long stay of 219 balls including 11 fours and 8 sixes that saw him finish on a 135 not out as England squared the five-match series.

Based on their connotations in the given passage, which one of the following meanings DOES NOT match?

Detailed Solution for Test: Verbal Analogies- 1 - Question 1

Squared means ‘making the score even/equal’ and the meaning given in the option is incorrect.

“Upped the tempo” means to increase the interest toward the game by playing so long.

“Saw him finish” means playing so long and making so many runs results in making 135 runs and equals the five matches series.

Test: Verbal Analogies- 1 - Question 2

A dance programme is scheduled for 10.00 a.m. Some students are participating in the programme and they need to come an hour earlier than the start of the event. These students should be accompanied by a parent. Other students and parents should come in time for the programme. The instruction you think that is appropriate for this is

Detailed Solution for Test: Verbal Analogies- 1 - Question 2

Let's look at the key points from the paragraph.

  • The dance programme is scheduled for 10:00 am
  • Participating students need to come an hour early i.e. at 9:00 am with a parent.
  • Other students and parents should come on time i.e. 10:00 am for the programme.

Let's look at the options given.

  • Option 1  is wrong because parents and students who are not participating should come at 10:00 am. Only those who are participating (student along with a parent) should come at 9:00.
  • Option 2 is correct as it agrees totally with the paragraph and what is mentioned.
  • Option 3 is wrong because participating students along with a parent should come at 9:00 am.
  • Option 4 is wrong because participating students along with a parent should come at 9:00 am

Hence the only option that agrees with the paragraph is Option (b) and therefore the correct answer. 

Test: Verbal Analogies- 1 - Question 3

Big:enormous:: Small: ______

Detailed Solution for Test: Verbal Analogies- 1 - Question 3

Let us find the relation between the first two words-​ 

  • Big and enormous are both synonyms.
  • Now we need to find a word which is the synonym of 'small'.
    • Compact means having all the necessary components or features neatly fitted into a small space.
    • Tidy means arranged neatly and in order.
    • Stubborn means having or showing dogged determination not to change one's attitude or position on something, especially in spite of good arguments or reasons to do so.
    • Insufficient means not enough; inadequate.

Clearly, 'compact' is the correct word.

Test: Verbal Analogies- 1 - Question 4

His knowledge of the subject was excellent but his classroom performance was ______.

Detailed Solution for Test: Verbal Analogies- 1 - Question 4

In the sentence given above, we have two independent clauses which are joint by coordinating conjunction 'but'. The word 'but' is one of the seven coordinating conjunctions in English (the others are and, or, so, for, nor, and yet). It’s used to connect two statements that contrast or contradict each other in some way. Now the first part of the sentence is positive in nature so the second part must contradict this, so the only contradicting option we have is 'extremely poor'.

Let's see some examples in order to develop more clarity:

  • learning Mathematics is difficult but fun!
  • She is the smartest girl in the class but I don't like her.

Complete Sentence: His knowledge of the subject was excellent but his classroom performance was extremely poor.

The CEO’s decision to quit was as shocking to the Board as it was to _______.

Detailed Solution for Test: Verbal Analogies- 1 - Question 9
  • The correct answer is 'me'
  • In the given sentence, the usage of 'to' means we need to use a prepositional object and that will be a noun/pronoun. According to the options we need to use a pronoun in an objective case.
  • Let's see an example-
    • To tell you the truth, I'm tired of listening to politicians tell us lies. ("politicians" is a noun and "to" is a preposition.)

Hence, the correct sentence is- The CEO’s decision to quit was as shocking to the Board as it was to me.
