S80. Ans.(c) 
Sol. Among the given options, only option (c) appears to be the reason for the given question, which can 
be validated from the third paragraph, which states, “There is a backlash against the rapid increase in 
international schools in China, where it’s perceived that they have been simply creaming off the best students.” 
Hence, option (c) is the most suitable answer choice.  
 
S81. Ans.(a) 
Sol. Among the given options, to validate the statement (III), refer to the 4
th
 paragraph, “For the growing 
Chinese middle class, the schools provided a more reliable route that Chinese national schools for getting into 
highly-regarded universities in the West, particularly those in the U.S. and U.K. These students, in turn, 
represent a lucrative source of income, for both the schools themselves and for Western universities.” Hence, 
option (a) is the most suitable answer choice.  
 
S82. Ans. (e) 
Sol. 
The correct option is option (e).The meaning of the words are: 
Hounded: harass, persecute, or pursue relentlessly. 
Pursued: follow or chase  
Moved: make progress; develop in a particular manner or direction. 
This makes “Hounded” and “Pursued” grammatically and contextually correct.

and contextually. 
This makes option (b) grammatically and contextually correct.

“singular”.  
Hence, answer would be (e). 
  
S85. Ans.(a) 
Sol. There is a grammatical error in (A) part of the sentence. Whenever “it” is used as an introductory

grammatically correct. 
Hence, answer would be option (a). 
 
S86. Ans.(b) 
Sol. There is a grammatical error in (B) part of the sentence. “Has” must be replaced with “have” to make 
the sentence grammatically correct because subject of the sentence is “judges” which is plural, hence, it 
will take plural verb. 
Hence, answer would be option (b). 
 
S87. Ans. (e) 
Sol. There is no error in any part of the sentence. Hence our correct option is option (e).

the sentence grammatically correct because subject of the sentence is “judges” which is plural, hence, it

Hence, answer would be option (b). 
 
S87. Ans. (e) 
Sol. There is no error in any part of the sentence. Hence our correct option is option (e).  
   
  
 
S88. Ans.(b) 
Sol. There is a grammatical error in (B) part of the sentence. Here, use of “present perfect continuous” tense 
is incorrect because to show completion or to talk about the result “present perfect tense” is used. Hence, 
“has been producing” has to be replaced with “has produced” to make the sentence grammatically correct. 
 
S89. Ans.(b) 
Sol. There is a grammatical error in (B) part of the sentence. Whenever a sentence starts with negative 
adverb like hardly, scarcely, barely, rarely, seldom, not only, under no circumstances and in no way   
inversion is used. Hence, “you would be allowed” has to be replaced with “would you be allowed” to make 
the sentence grammatically correct. 
 
S90. Ans.(c) 
Sol. We never use ‘of’ with ‘although’. So, to make the sentence grammatically and contextually correct, 
replace the phrase given with  the option (c). Hence, option (c) is correct answer choice.    
 
S91. Ans.(c) 
Sol. There is an error in the sentence. To make the sentence grammatically correct, option (c) should 
replace the phrase. So the correct phrase will be “….government announced..” . Hence, correct answer 
choice will be option (c). 
 
S92. Ans. (d) 
Sol. The phrase is ‘in close collaboration’ instead of ‘in close collaborating’, so option (d) will replace the 
phrase in the sentence. Hence, option (d) is correct answer choice.  
 
S93. Ans.(b) 
Sol. There is a grammatical error in the sentence. In a conditional sentence both the clauses cannot be in 
future tense. In this case “if” clause must be in simple present tense. Hence “will agree” has to be replaced 
with “agrees”. Hence, option (b) is correct answer choice. 
 
S94. Ans.(a) 
Sol. From the given options, (a) will replace the phrase as the sentence is in indirect speech. And with 
indirect speech we always change the tense of the given verb. So ‘fell’ should replace ‘fall’. Hence, option 
(a) is correct answer choice. 
 
S95. Ans.(c) 
Sol. The correct word is “Participate” as it fits the context completely. 
Other options are  contextually incorrect. 
 
S96. Ans.(b) 
Sol. The “traditional” fits into the sentence, all other options are not in 
line with the passage. Myriad means “countless or extremely great 
number of people or things” which is contextually incorrect. 
 
S97. Ans.(a) 
Sol. The “active” fits the sentence completely while result is a noun 
which is grammatically incorrect. “Recent” and “Counter” are 
grammatically and contextually incorrect.

Hence, answer would be option (a). 
 
S86. Ans.(b) 
Sol. There is a grammatical error in (B) part of the sentence. “Has” must be replaced with “have” to make 
the sentence grammatically correct because subject of the sentence is “judges” which is plural, hence, it 
will take plural verb. 
Hence, answer would be option (b). 
 
S87. Ans. (e) 
Sol. There is no error in any part of the sentence. Hence our correct option is option (e).  
   
  
 
S88. Ans.(b) 
Sol. There is a grammatical error in (B) part of the sentence. Here, use of “present perfect continuous” tense 
is incorrect because to show completion or to talk about the result “present perfect tense” is used. Hence, 
“has been producing” has to be replaced with “has produced” to make the sentence grammatically correct. 
 
S89. Ans.(b) 
Sol. There is a grammatical error in (B) part of the sentence. Whenever a sentence starts with negative 
adverb like hardly, scarcely, barely, rarely, seldom, not only, under no circumstances and in no way   
inversion is used. Hence, “you would be allowed” has to be replaced with “would you be allowed” to make 
the sentence grammatically correct. 
 
S90. Ans.(c) 
Sol. We never use ‘of’ with ‘although’. So, to make the sentence grammatically and contextually correct, 
replace the phrase given with  the option (c). Hence, option (c) is correct answer choice.    
 
S91. Ans.(c) 
Sol. There is an error in the sentence. To make the sentence grammatically correct, option (c) should 
replace the phrase. So the correct phrase will be “….government announced..” . Hence, correct answer 
choice will be option (c). 
 
S92. Ans. (d) 
Sol. The phrase is ‘in close collaboration’ instead of ‘in close collaborating’, so option (d) will replace the 
phrase in the sentence. Hence, option (d) is correct answer choice.  
 
S93. Ans.(b) 
Sol. There is a grammatical error in the sentence. In a conditional sentence both the clauses cannot be in 
future tense. In this case “if” clause must be in simple present tense. Hence “will agree” has to be replaced 
with “agrees”. Hence, option (b) is correct answer choice. 
 
S94. Ans.(a) 
Sol. From the given options, (a) will replace the phrase as the sentence is in indirect speech. And with 
indirect speech we always change the tense of the given verb. So ‘fell’ should replace ‘fall’. Hence, option 
(a) is correct answer choice. 
 
S95. Ans.(c) 
Sol. The correct word is “Participate” as it fits the context completely. 
Other options are  contextually incorrect. 
 
S96. Ans.(b) 
Sol. The “traditional” fits into the sentence, all other options are not in 
line with the passage. Myriad means “countless or extremely great 
number of people or things” which is contextually incorrect. 
 
S97. Ans.(a) 
Sol. The “active” fits the sentence completely while result is a noun 
which is grammatically incorrect. “Recent” and “Counter” are 
grammatically and contextually incorrect. 
   
  
 
S98. Ans.(a) 
Sol. The word “matches” fits the sentence contextually and 
grammatically. The other words include “Harmony” which means 
“compatibility in opinion and action” is incorrect contextually. 
 
S99. Ans. (d) 
Sol. Here in this sentence we require an adverb to qualify Verb “feel”. 
Among the given options only “Frustrating” is an adverb also it 
contextually fits in the sentence.  
 
S100. Ans.(c) 
Sol. Here the Word “fooled” fits in the sentence. Other options are not in line with the sentence. The other 
word includes “emptied” which is contextually incorrect.
