MCQ: Fill in the Blank- 2 - Question 1

Directions: In the following question, a sentence is given with a blank. You have to fill the blank with one of the words given as options in order to make the sentence contextually and grammatically correct.

Nobody rules out another surge of the diabolical pathogen, but research and resilience have readied us to _______________ better.

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

Let us first learn the meanings of the given words:

Contest (verb): engage in dispute about.

Assuage (verb): make (an unpleasant feeling) less intense.

Lull (verb): calm or send to sleep, typically with soothing sounds or movements.

Mitigate (verb): make (something bad) less severe, serious, or painful.

Appease (verb): assuage or satisfy.

The sentence implies that research and resilience have now empowered us to fight against the spread of virus, thus ‘contest’ and ‘lull’ are contextually weak options. ‘Assuaging’ and 'appeasing' are grammatically inapt as we need a verb in its simple form after 'to'. Thus, only ‘mitigate’ fits here grammatically and contextually.

Hence, option D is correct.

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Fill in the Blank- 2 - Question 2

The sentence implies that the king had an efficient governance and thus is popular among people till date. Since the segment containing the blank is in passive voice, thus only a verb in its third form will fit the blank, thus ‘honour’ and ‘know’ are incorrect grammatically. The use of ‘neglected’ is contextually incorrect. ‘Saluted’ is also weak as per the context stated. Only ‘remembered’ is the best fit as the context and grammatical reference.

Hence, option B is correct.
