QUESTION: 1

Unlike the expatriates of yester years, who gave nothing back to their native lands, those today are making _____________ investments.

Solution:

A single blank text completion question can sometimes be trickier than multiple blank sentences, because multiple blank sentences are (usually) longer and contain more clues. So, it is easier to work out how the blanks affect each other.

This single blank text completion question offers us a clue in its very first word. The sentence starts with the word “Unlike”, which we know describes a contrast. For example: “Unlike A which is high, B is low”. The comparison in this sentence is between expatriates of yester-years and expatriates today. The expatriates of yester years gave back nothing to their native lands. IN CONTRAST what are the expatriates of today expected to do? They are expected to be generous and contribute to their native lands.

So, a comparison of their contributions will reveal that expatriates today will be a lot more generous and will make more significant investments that are truly commendable.

QUESTION: 2

While alcohol causes obvious and immediate changes in moods and behaviours, nicotine has ________ effects, but is equally deleterious to health over prolonged periods of time.

Solution:

The key words in this sentence are “While” and “But”. Both these words represent contrast.

While alcohol causes obvious and immediate changes, nicotine ...(try to use your own word or phrase here).. does NOT cause immediate or obvious changes. So we might think that nicotine is less harmful. But the word immediately after that “BUT” tells us that it is wrong to think so: Nicotine is equally harmful to health. So the word or phrase in the blank has to mean “less obvious or immediate”.
