QUESTION: 6

Because Istanbul lies in two continents – Asia and Europe, its culture is a fascinating _______ of both Asian and European cultures.

Solution:


This is a relatively straightforward single blank sentence. If we use our own word in the blank (without looking at the answer options), we can say that since Istanbul lies in both Asia and Europe, it has a good combination of both cultures. The only word which matches the meaning is answer option C.

QUESTION: 7

Getting a private pilot's license is expensive affair in Europe, but this problem can be _______ if one obtains a license from certain south-east Asian countries where the cost of the license is much lesser.

Solution:


Understanding the context can sometimes clearly tell us the meaning of the word which has to be placed there.

The cost of getting a private pilot's license is very high in Europe and lower in some south-east Asian countries. If a prospective pilot has to get his or her license in Europe, he or she will face the problem of high cost. But this cost can be avoided (using our own word here) if the license is obtained in a south-east Asian country, The only word which has the same meaning as “avoided” is circumvented. Answer option D.

Averted is a close answer option, but it is not correct because when a problem is averted, it goes away, or does not happen. In this case, the costs will still remain high in Europe even if pilots get their licenses in Asia. So the problem is only circumvented.
