Choice (3)28. ‘Economic’ is the right word. Choice (2)29. ‘Inclined’ is the right word. Choice (1)30. ‘Prevail’ is appropriate. Choice (2)Solutions for questions 31 to 34:31. ‘Mount’ means to organize and begin anactivity or event, which goes with the firstblank.‘Unearth’ means to discover proof orsome other information, especially aftercareful searching, which goes with thesecond blank. The other option do not gowith the context. Choice (4)32.

Choice (2)Hence, ΙΙ is implicit. If it is assumed thatthe customers do not abide by the notice,then the notice would not have been issued. Hence, Ι is implicit. Choice (4)46. The word ‘Despite’ indicates that thestatement assumes that an icon in Bollywood will be affected by the trappingof tinsel town. Hence, Ι is implicit. Fromthe statement ΙΙ, it appears that becomingan icon occurs before getting affected.Hence, ΙΙ is not implicit53. According to the statement, China maybecome the largest economy sometimein the future. Hence, Ι follows. From thestatement it is clear that China has thehighest growth rate, even though it is notthe largest economy. Hence, ΙΙ does notfollow, but ΙΙΙ follows. Choice (1)Choice (1)47. Unless the University assumes that somepeople want to do Hotel Managementcourse, the advertisement would not havebeen given. The advertisement is givenwith an intention of attracting the peopleto the University also. Hence, both Ι andΙΙ are implicit. 54. From the statement it cannot be concludedthat either education or opportunity alonebrings about inspiration. Hence, neither Ιnor ΙΙ follows. According to the statementeducation brings about opportunity andbecause of opportunity one get inspired,hence ΙΙΙ follows. Choice (3)Choice (4)48. The statement assumes existence of thesubject and the other hypothetical thingsreferred to. Hence, both Ι and ΙΙ are implicit. Choice (4)49. The word ‘pity’ indicates that the statement expects the government to takecharge of the situation. Hence, Ι is implicit. The statement has no reference to thefeelings of the government towards theaffected areas. Hence, ΙΙ is not implicit. Choice (1)50.

Hence,RI is the reason and RII is irrelevant. Choice (1)58. RI is certainly the fact which violates human rights and even corrupts the youth.So, it could be the reason. Human rightsgroup and the rise in charges of the MMSare in no way related. So, RII cannot bethe reason. Choice (1)59. RI is not the reason. RII is the reason,as the Indian government follows non–violent policies. Hence, India can beconsidered a non-violent country.Choice (2)52. The statement refers to the creation ofthousands and thousands of large organisations for the first time.

From thestatement it cannot be concluded, whetherthere is anything else apart from goodmanagers which can keep the organisations functioning. Hence ΙΙ does not follow. The statement refers to the organisations as ‘those bureaucracies’. Hence ΙΙΙfo
