The second blank is regarding the “negative environmental impact” of the plastic bag.

In the context of the sentence, the words which are suitable for the first blank are “inclusive”, “comprehensive” and “extensive”. Hence options B and E are eliminated.

“Lack of” before the second blank and “rules” after it shows that it has to be the opposite of the type of rules faced by the mainstream media.

The words “delicate" and “defamation” are irrelevant to the context of this sentence. This eliminates options A and D as well.

Option A would have been considered if the helping verb “is” was present before the first blank. The other options make the statement contextually inappropriate.

Test: Fill in the Blank - 2 - Question 8

Directions: The following question has two blanks, each blank indicating that something has been omitted. Choose the set of words for each blank that best fits in the context of the sentence

Social sector banks tend to man the business verticals with the brightest talent and less __________ staff in the inspection and __________ roles.

Detailed Solution for Test: Fill in the Blank - 2 - Question 8

The sentence says that the “brightest” talents are already employed in the business verticals of the social sector banks. Therefore, the first blank refers to the remaining less ‘capable’ employees. In the context of the sentence, the words which are suitable for the first blank are “skilled”, “competent” and “experienced”. Hence options C and E are eliminated.

The word “inspection” and the second blank are joined by “and” and describe the “roles” of the staff. The only word that makes the sentence meaningfully correct is “supervision”. The words “future" and “futile” are irrelevant to the context of this sentence. This eliminates options A and D as well.

Option B is hence the correct answer.

Test: Fill in the Blank - 2 - Question 9

Directions: The following question has two blanks, each blank indicating that something has been omitted. Choose the set of words for each blank that best fits in the context of the sentence

The upcoming housing units in Maharashtra will increase residential building sector floor space by approximately 100 million square metre and will generate higher carbon footprint, posing __________ environmental impacts if not constructed __________ and factoring occupants comfort.

Detailed Solution for Test: Fill in the Blank - 2 - Question 9

The word "posing" reflects a tone of 'negative effect' and hence only "undesirable", “adverse” and "destructive” would fit the blank. Options B and D lack this reasoning and can be eliminated.

Sustainable development means utilizing resources today in a manner that does not harm the future generations. The construction of residential buildings will leave a huge carbon footprint and should be done in an efficient way that does not have negative impacts in future. The adverb "sustainably" would fit the blank aptly. “Nicely” and “helpfully do not convey the meaning properly and hence options A and E can also be eliminated.

Option C is hence the correct answer.

Test: Fill in the Blank - 2 - Question 10

Directions: The following question has two blanks, each blank indicating that something has been omitted. Choose the set of words for each blank that best fits in the context of the sentence

SEBI believes that any move to transfer its __________ funds to the Consolidated Fund of India would mean the fees levied by SEBI on investors and traders would become a type of additional tax, resulting in a perverse __________ to increase the generation of such revenue for the government.

Detailed Solution for Test: Fill in the Blank - 2 - Question 10

The word “funds” after the first blank indicates that the word describes the type of funds that might be transferred to the Consolidated Fund of India. In the context of the sentence, the words which are suitable for the first blank are “surplus”, “excess” and “surfeit”. Hence options C and D are eliminated.

The second blank refers to the motivation “to increase the generation” of fees levied by SEBI on to investors as this would also act as revenue for the government if the funds are transferred. The only word that makes the sentence meaningfully correct is “incentive” which means ‘a thing that motivates or encourages someone to do something’. The words “acquisition" and “embellishment” are irrelevant to the context of this sentence. This eliminates options B and E as well.

Option A is hence the correct answer.

Test: Fill in the Blank - 2 - Question 11

Directions: A sentence is given here with a blank and you need to fill the blank choosing the word/words given below. If all the words given can fill the blank appropriately, choose ‘All are correct’ as your answer.

I. perplexed
II. amused
III. happy

Detailed Solution for Test: Fill in the Blank - 2 - Question 11

Here the statements represent two contradictory facts. Contradiction always creates confusion in one’s mind.

Therefore “perplexed” is the only word that fits in the blank absolutely.

Hence option A is correct.

Directions: A sentence is given here with a blank and you need to fill the blank choosing the word/words given below. If all the words given can fill the blank appropriately, choose ‘All are correct’ as your answer.

Reservations to economically weaker sections would be provided without adversely _______ the SC/ST and socially and economically backward classes.
I. affecting
II. effecting
III. influencing

Detailed Solution for Test: Fill in the Blank - 2 - Question 13

The word "effect" is a noun and not used as a verb/present participle.

Therefore, usage of it for the blank can be eliminated straightaway.

'Affect' and 'Influence' both are synonymous to each other as they mean 'have an effect on'.

Therefore, choices I and III absolutely fit the blank.

Hence option D is correct.

Test: Fill in the Blank - 2 - Question 14

Detailed Solution for Test: Fill in the Blank - 2 - Question 15

Both the verbs 'Bear' and 'Support' mean 'carry the weight of' and either of them is correct for the blank. However, 'keep' means 'have or retain possession of' would be absurd in the context of the sentence. Instead of 'keep', 'keep up' would have been correct as that is synonymous to 'Bear'.

Option B is hence the correct answer

Among the given words, we can fill the given blank with depicted and presented whereas characterized will not fit in the given context.

This makes Option B the correct choice among the given options.

Option C – ‘Acclaimed’ means to praise, which is contradictory to the “notice” being issued by Trump.

Option C – ‘Dwindling’ of reserves has led the situation that it has reached to such a low level that Pakistan could pay for two months of import only. Thus both the words fit the blank contextually and grammatically correctly.

Hence option C is correct.

Hence option D is correct.

Hence option B is correct.
