Request (verb) : politely or formally ask for.
Wonder (verb) : desire to know something.
Speculate (verb) : reflect deeply on a subject.
Hence, the correct answer is option D. 

MCQ: Fill in the Blank- 3 - Question 11

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

Lawmakers are _________ over the steady stream of ________ they continue to receive.

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Fill in the Blank- 3 - Question 11

The first blank should contain an adjective or verb as the word will be explaining the state of the lawmakers for receiving something. The word ‘frequent’ is contextually incorrect as it does not describe the state of the lawmakers. ‘Suffering’ is also incorrect because we suffer ‘from’ something and not ‘over’ something. This eliminates options B and D.
Rage (verb) : feel or express violent uncontrollable anger.
Suffer (verb) : experience or be subjected to something bad
Fierce (adjective) : having or displaying an intense or ferocious aggressiveness.
Agonize (verb) : undergo great mental anguish through worrying about something.
The second blank mentions ‘stream of’ which indicates that the word in second blank should be a noun and it must be plural because the group of something is called ‘stream’. This eliminates option A. The word ‘violent’ cannot be placed in the sentence as it is an adjective and this eliminates option C.
Scheme (noun) : a particular ordered system or arrangement.
Logger (noun) : a person who fells trees for timber.
Violent (adjective) : using or involving physical force intended to hurt, damage, or kill someone or something.
Hence, the correct answer is option D. 

MCQ: Fill in the Blank- 3 - Question 12

Directions: In the question given below, a sentence is given with two blanks indicating that some parts are missing. Identify the correct pair of words that fit in the sentence to make it grammatically and contextually correct.

_______________ of slow changes in relationship between the genders, does not make it easy for such rapid shifts to be _______________ easily.

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Fill in the Blank- 3 - Question 12

Option A: 'Helped easily' is not contextually correct.
Option C: Neither of the words makes a meaningful sentence.
Option D: Both words are irrelevant as shifts cannot be 'used'.
The sentence talks about gender relationship which (we all know) has not been easy since long. Hence, we can safely assume the first blank has something to do with time. The second part of the sentence denotes difficulty; this means the rapid shifts cannot be ‘absorbed’ easily.

Hence, option B is correct.  

MCQ: Fill in the Blank- 3 - Question 13

Direction: In the following sentence, a blank is given indicating that something is missing. Choose the correct word from the given options that will complete the sentence in the meaningful manner.

The forced exodus of the Pandits from the Valley is one of the most _______________ chapters in the sub-continent’s history, as shameful as the Sikh pogrom of 1984.

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Fill in the Blank- 3 - Question 13

According to the context of the given sentence, we can understand that we are talking about the forced exile of the Pandits from the valley and it is being compared to the Sikh pogrom of 1984. Both cannot be treated with respect and appreciation. They are not some great events of history that everyone will feel proud of while going through. Rather they are dark events in the history of the country as well as the entire sub-continent. So, it can only be shameful, to say the least. 'Untruthful' will not fit in this context and so are the other words except 'shameful'. So, that is our correct word for this sentence.

This makes option A the correct choice among the given options.

MCQ: Fill in the Blank- 3 - Question 14

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. Compiled
II. Launched
III. Pursued

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Fill in the Blank- 3 - Question 14

The sentence says that local students started a protest against the ruthless Russification policies. So, only the word ‘launched’ fits in the blank correctly.
Meanings of the given words:
Compiled (verb): produce (a list or book) by assembling information collected from other sources.
Launched (verb): start or set in motion (an activity or enterprise).
Pursued (verb): seek to attain or accomplish (a goal) over a long period.
Hence, the correct option is D.

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Fill in the Blank- 3 - Question 15

The sentence implies that strong winds together with continuous rains slowed down traffic, uprooted trees and collapsed buildings. This makes ‘incessant’ the correct word for the given blank.
