It was very cold outside, and the fire we lit was dimming down; hence I decided to _______________ it a bit.

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

“Stoke” means “add coal or other solid fuel to (a fire, furnace, boiler, etc.)”. The word “stoke” fits the blank perfectly.

“Soak” and “strike” do not make any sense here either grammatically or contextually.

“Soak” means make or allow (something) to become thoroughly wet by immersing it in liquid

“Strike” means hit forcibly and deliberately with one's hand or a weapon or other implement

“Increase” may also fit the blank, but “stoke” is more appropriate in the given context.

Hence, option C is the correct answer

Detailed Solution for Test: Fill in the Blank - 1 - Question 2

“Embezzling” means misappropriating/stealing of funds placed in one's trust or belonging to one's employer. Hence, it does not fit the context properly.

The word ‘frauding’ is incorrect. “Fraud” is a noun; ‘-ing’ cannot be added to it. Hence, it can also be eliminated.

“Swindling” means ‘use deception to deprive (someone) of money or possessions’. It also does not fit the context properly.

“Looting” means ‘steal goods from (a place), typically during a war or riot”. It also does not fit the context aptly.

“Pilfering” means ‘stealing things of little value’.

As, ‘a bottle of oil’ can be considered a thing of not much value, ‘pilfering’ fits the blank appropriately.

Hence, option D is the correct answer.

Detailed Solution for Test: Fill in the Blank - 1 - Question 4

Rotten smell is never pleasant. Besides, ‘she’ became unconscious smelling it. So, the smell was not pleasing for sure.

The words ‘gratifying’ and ‘captivating’ are synonymous with ‘pleasing’. Hence, these words can be eliminated.

“Unappealing” is not a very strong word and consequently won’t fit here. The context demands a very strong word as ‘she’ became ‘unconscious’ smelling the rotten odour.

Only “revolting” fits the blank appropriately both contextually and grammatically.

“Revolting” means causing intense disgust; disgusting

Hence, option A is the correct answer.

Detailed Solution for Test: Fill in the Blank - 1 - Question 5

The apparition (=ghost) that stalked Reshma for days, ultimately threw her off the cliff. So, ‘benevolent’ and magnanimous’ won’t fit the blank as these are positive words.

“Benevolent” means well-meaning and kindly

“Magnanimous” means generous or forgiving, especially towards a rival or less powerful person

“Callous” means indifferent/ showing or having an insensitive disregard. It does not make any sense in the given context, and hence, can be eliminated
