1. 3 Since, W was not the third product that was launched,

therefore it was not launched in May or March.

Also, X and W were launched in months that have names

starting from the same alphabet; therefore X and W are

launched in January and June not necessarily in that order.

Using statement A:

Given that Y was not the second or the last product that was

launched, which means that Y was not launched in the months

of March and August.

So, Y was launched in May.

It is given that Z was not launched in the last month, i.e.

August, so we can conclude that Z was launched in the

month of March.

Hence, statement A alone is sufficient to answer the question.

Using statement B:

Given that K was not the third or the last product that was

launched, which means that K was not launched in the months

of May and August.

So, K was launched in March.

We also, know that Z was not launched in August, so we can

conclude that Z was launched in the month of May.

Hence, statement B alone is also sufficient to answer the

question.

Therefore, option (3) is the correct choice.

2. 2 Let the number of dogs, cats and rabbits be d, c and r

respectively.

It is also given that d + c + r = 12 and .

The possible sets of values of d, c and r not necessarily in

that particular order are (2, 4, 6); (2, 5, 5); (3, 4, 5); (3, 3, 6)

and (4, 4, 4).

Using statement A:

The number of cats and dogs with Carol could be

(5, 5) or (3, 3) or (4, 4).

The number of rabbits when the number of dogs is

5, 3 and 4 is 2, 6 and 4 respectively.

It is also given that the number of rabbits is not more than the

number of dogs, so the number of rabbits could be either 2 or

4.

Hence, statement A alone is not sufficient to answer the

question.

Using Statement B:

The number of cats and dogs with Carol could be

(5, 2) or (6, 3) in this particular order.

The number of rabbits with Carol when there are

5 cats is 5 and the number of rabbits with Carol when there

are 6 cats is 3.

Since the number of rabbits with Carol is less than the number

of cats, therefore the number of rabbits with Carol is 3.

Hence, statement B alone is sufficient to answer the question.

3. 1 Using statement A:

Given that the angular distance covered by the line segment

AB in every 5 seconds is 615.

Therefore, the angular distance covered by the line segment

AB in 30 seconds = 615 6 = 3690

= 10 360+ 90.

Therefore, we can conclude that at time t = 30 seconds the

line segment AB will lie in the second quadrant.

Hence, statement A alone is sufficient to answer the question.

Using statement B:

Given that the angular distance covered by the line segment

AB in every 10 seconds is 640.

Therefore, the angular distance covered by the line segment

AB in 30 seconds = 640 3 = 1920

= 5 360+ 120.

Therefore, we cannot conclude that at time t = 30 seconds

the line segment AB will lie in which of the four quadrants.

Hence, statement B alone is not sufficient to answer the

question.

Hence, option (1) is the correct choice.

5. 1 The sum of digits of the four-digit number can be even in the

following cases.

Case I: All the four digit selected are odd

Four digits out of five odd digits (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) can be selected

in

5

C

4

= 5 ways.

These 4 digits can arrange among themselves in 4! ways

Total ways = 5 4! = 120 ways.

Case II: All the four digit selected are non-odd

There can be two sub cases:

(a) All four digits are (2, 4, 6, 8)

The number of ways 4 digit number can be formed

= 4! = 24 ways.

(b) One of the digit is zero and the three digits are selected out

of (2, 4, 6, 8) in

4

C

3

ways.

A four-digit number in which one-digit is zero can be formed in

3 3 2 1 ways.

Total ways =

4

C

3

3 3 2 1 = 72 ways.

Case III: Two digits are non-odd and the other two

digits are odd.

There can be two sub cases:

(a) Two odd digits are out of (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) and two even digits

are out of (2, 4, 6, 8)

These four digits can be arranged in 4! ways.

Total ways =

4! = 1440

(b) Two digits are out of (1, 3, 5, 7, 9), one digit is zero and one

Total ways =

Since the LCM of 120 and Z is 1800, therefore Z can be a

perfect square. One of the possible values of Z can be 3

But it is not necessary that Z has to be perfect square as it

can be 2 3

Hence, option (5) is the correct choice.

7. 2 The given equation is ab + 2 = 2a + b + 600.

ab 2a b + 2 = 600 (a 1)(b 2) = 600

Now, it is given that a is an odd number and b is an even

number which implies that both (a 1) and (b 2) are even

numbers.

Therefore, the possible pairs of values of (a 1) and (b 2)

that satisfy the given equation are (2, 300); (4, 150); (6, 100);

(10, 60) (12, 50). (20, 30); (30, 20); (50, 12); (60, 10); (100, 6);

(150, 4); and (300, 2).

Therefore, there are 12 solutions for the given equation.

Hence, option (2) is the correct choice.

9. 1 Let the earlier cost price of the item = Rs.100

Earlier marked price = Rs.105.

On that day, 30% discount is offered on Rs. 3 105 = Rs.315

Thus, new selling price = Rs.220.50

New Profit percentage = 120.50.

10. 5 Given that a

5

+ b

5

+ c

5

= 91849.

Therefore, the units digit of a + b + c would also be 9.

Note:

Any number raised to power (4n + 1) i.e. 5, 9, 13, 17.. will

have the same units digit as the original number itself.

Hence, the number a has the same units digit as a

5

.

Similarly, b and c have the same units digit as b

5

and c

5

respectively.

It implies that (a + b + c) would have same units digit as

(a

5

+ b

5

+ c

5

).

As a, b, and c are distinct digits their maximum possible sum is

24 i.e. (9 + 8 + 7).

Hence, a + b + c = 9 or 19.

If a + b + c = 9, then the maximum possible value of

a

5

+ b

5

+ c

5

would be 32769.

This is possible when a, b, and c = (8, 1, 0) not necessarily in

that particular order.

Since, 91849 is much greater than that, hence a + b + c = 19.

Sum of digits at the odd places of (2a5b1c) starting from the

left = 2 + 5 + 1 = 8

Sum of the digits at the even places of (2a5b1c) starting from

the left = a + b + c = 19

Therefore, the remainder when 2a5b1c is divided by 11 will

be the same as when |8 19| = 11 is divided by 11.

Hence, the remainder will be (11 11) = 0.

Hence, option (5) is the correct choice.

For questions 12 and 13:

If we assume (1, 7) as the first block, (1, 1, 7, 7) as the second block

and so on till m

th

block, then T

5001

will be in the m

th

block.

There are 2 terms in the first block, 4 terms in the second block and so

on.

Least possible value of m that satisfy the above is m = 71.

T

block.

Total number of terms in the first 70

blocks = 70 71 = 4970 terms.

In the 71

st

block, there will 71 ones and 71 sevens.

Therefore, the sum of first 5001 terms of the series

70 71

12. 3

Alternative method:

Note: All the numbers in this sequence are odd and hence the sum

of 5001 terms has to be an odd number greater then 5001,

hence option (3).

13. 5 All the terms from T

14. 2 To find the maximum possible value of

the minimum (positive) possible value of the product of y and

z.

y = 4

x

+ 4

1 x

will be an integer only at x = 0 and x = 1 (where

x is an integer)

The value of y at x = 1 is 5 and at x = 0 is 5 as well.

The value of z at x = 1 is 3 and at x = 0 is 8.

Minimum product = 5 3 = 15

Therefore, the maximum possible value of the expression

16. 2 When z is of the form 9x or 9x + 1 or 9x + 8 then C

z

will

contain a multiple 9.

From 72 to 136 there are 8 numbers each of the form 9x and

9x + 1, and 7 numbers each of the form 9x + 8.

So, the number of sets with a multiple of nine = 8 2 + 7 1 =

16 + 7 = 23 sets.

17. 1 From 10 to 100 there are 7 perfect square.

One set will contain 100 and each of the remaining perfect

squares will be contained in 3 sets each.

So in total there are 6 3 + 1 1 = 19 sets.

Solving the quadratic equation, we get x = 1000 m.

The marks obtained by each of the three candidates in sections A, B,

C, and D should be divisible by 2, 3, 5, and 6 respectively.

It is clear that 'r' has to be a multiple of 50.

If we take 'r' = 50, then the marks obtained by Rohan in section A is 17,

which is not possible.

If we take 'r' = 100, then the marks obtained by Rohan in section D is

28, which is not possible.

6AIJ 2HAF

Therefore, the minimum possible value of 'r' is 300 and 'r' will always

be a multiple of 300.

Similarly, the minimum possible value of 't' is 100 and 't' will always be

a multiple of 100.

Also by the same logic the minimum possible value of 'a' is 600 and 'a'

will always be a multiple of 600.

19. 1 Minimum possible aggregate marks obtained by Rohan, Tarun,

and Anup is 300 + 100 + 600 = 1000.

So, option (1) is the correct choice.

For questions 20 to 22:

It is given that the aggregate marks obtained by Rohan, Tarun, and

Anup is 1900 and the marks obtained by Rohan is not less than the

marks obtained by Anup.

The following cases are possible:-

Case I: Rohan = 600, Tarun = 700, and Anup = 600

Case II: Rohan = 900, Tarun = 400, and Anup = 600

23. 3 Option (1): It can be true when Tarun has 300 marks and Anup

has 2400 marks in the recruitment test.

Option (2): It can be true when Tarun has 5100 marks and

Rohan has 4800 marks in recruitment test.

Option (3): It cannot be true as the minimum sum of the marks

obtained by Anup in section C and Tarun in section D is

Option (4): It can be true when Tarun has 3600 marks and

Anup has 4200 marks in the recruitment test.

Hence, statement in options (3) is definitely false.

For questions 24 to 26:

24. 4 Lets start from the box B6, as there has to be one death box

adjacent to it and there is only one box available i.e. C5. So,

C5 is a death box. Now C5 is also adjacent to D6 and B5; as

C5 satisfies the death box number for D6 and B5; so other

boxes adjacent to D6 and B5 cannot be death boxes; so E5

and C4 are life boxes.

Now for E6, F5 has to be a death box.

For box B4 there has to be two death boxes, adjacent to it.

One is in C5, the other one has to be in C3 as it is the only box

left adjacent to B4.

Now for box F4, one death box is in F5, other one must be in

box E3 as it is the only box left. So all the boxes adjacent to

box D4 are opened and there are only three death boxes

among them. So, the box D4 shows 3 when opened. Hence,

the following table can be concluded on the basis of

information given in the question:

A B C D E F G H I

1 * * 2 2 1 1

2 2 4 * 4 * 2

3 2 * 4 * 2

4 2 2 3 2 2 2 1 1

5 1 * 1 1 * 2 *

6 1 1 1 1 1 2

7 1

8 1 *

9 1

25. 3 From the table shown above, the death boxes adjacent to

the box G6 are F5 and H5.

26. 4 From the condition given in the question following cases are

possible.

Case 1:

H I

7 1 1

8 * 1

Case 2:

Case 3:

Case 4:

9 3 *

Hence the required sums in case 1, case 2, case 3, and case

4 are 5, 8, 6, and 7 respectively. Hence option (4) is the

correct choice.

27. 4 Total weight (in 000 tonnes) of the crops produced in the

states of HR, UP, PB and TN = 18 + 11 + 14 + 13 = 56.

Total weight (in 000 tonnes) of the crops W, P, B, M produced

= 18 + 25 + 9 + 17 = 69.

Assuming that the excess weight (in 000 tonnes) is all that of

crop P which will be equal to 69 56 = 13.

Maximum weight (in 000 tonnes) of crop P produced in the

state GJ = 13

28. 5 The possible combinations of states where the crop PO and

O can be grown are (WB, AP, GJ), (WB, TN, KR), (WB, MR,

KR), (MP, AP, PB), (TN, MR, MP), and (UP, KR, MP).

So, HR is definitely not the state where the crop PO is grown.

For questions 29 and 30:

Minimum weight (in000 tonnes) of the crop amongst the ten states is

produced in the state WB, i.e. 7.

Lets say x number of crops are produced in equal quantities in the

given states and the value of x is maximum possible.

For this the aggregate weight of these x crops produced in India

should not be more than 70.

The value of x cannot be more than 5 as no matter which 6 crops we

select their total weight will exceed 70.

There can be six different cobinations of 5 crops such that their total

weight does not exceed 70.

These 6 combinations are as follows:

1. B, J, R, PO, M

2. B, J, R, PO, W

3. B, J, R, PO, O

4. B, J, R, M, W

5. B, J, R, M, O

6. B, J, R, W, O

If we take one more crop, then the total weight will cross

70, therefore maximum possible value of x is 5.

So, maximum possible weight (in 000 tonnes) of the crop W

table can be drawn.

Amar Bhuvan Chirag Dhruv Elan

Given that the code assigned to Amar is D.

This implies that code assigned to Elan is B and code assigned

to Dhruv is E.

Also, the code assigned to Chirag is A.

Therefore, the code assigned to Bhuvan is C.

32. 3 When Jersey 1 begins the chain of passes, some of the

players repeatedly get the ball, making a loop while others

never receive the ball as illustrated in the figure below:

If Jersey 6 is not included in the loop, he will not get any

chance to pass the ball to any of his team members and

hence the minimum number of passes that he can make is 0.

When he is included in the loop, he gets to pass the ball back

every fifth time. Given that Jersey 6 is in the loop, the minimum

number of passes that he can make, out of the given 1001 is

200 and the maximum number of passes that he can make is

201(that is when he makes the first pass.)

For questions 37 to 40:

There are 4 non-vegetarian items and only 2 non-vegetarians D & E, it

implies that both(D, E) have exactly two non-veg items (from statement

2)

According to information no (1) the meals taken by C, D, E could be

a. Biscuit and burger

b. Rice and rotis (this has to go with C as only vegetarian combination)

c. Continental and Chinese

d. Continental and chicken.

Toast and Fruit can go to A only (these should go to a vegetarian)and

now Dosa & Upma combination has to go to B only. As E doesnt like

chicken it should go to D, this implies that Continental-Chinese

combination should go to E and Biscuit-Burger combination to D

Hence the meal arrangement will be:

Breakfast Lunch Dinner

A Toast Fruits Pizza

B Milk Dosa Upma

C Salad Rice Rotis

D Biscuit Burger Chicken

E Eggs Continental Chinese

37. 2 38. 4 39. 5 40. 3

41. 4 From the first paragraph, one can infer that ambivalence or

hesitation as also self consciousness- which facilitated self-

criticism in the earlier days is lacking nowadays. So option

(1), (2) and (3) are the characteristics that lack in modern

romantic ideology. Option 4 seems to be the trend of the

modern times. In fact it is this positive belief and absorption-

which is opposite of ambivalence, that is criticized by McGann.

Option 4 is the best available choice.

42. 5 Refer to the last paragraph. From the 2nd sentence it can be

inferred that McGann does not support extreme viewpoints.

Option 2 is rejected in the same sentence by McGann. Option

3 is incorrect. Infact, McGann advocates recognizing

paraochial ideological formulations. Option 4 is the authors

view and not of McGanns. Option 5 is in line with McGanns

approach of skepticism or circumspection. Option 5 is adopted

by Heine and McGann supports his work.

43. 2 The author is trying to show that the uncritical acceptance of

the presumptions of Romanticism results in problems as the

ideology becomes debased and this debased ideology starts

permeating or informing other branches like poetry. Option 1 is

incorrect. Option 3 is not the main argument of the author.

Option 4 is incorrect as the author is not only challenging the

debased Romantic ideology but showing that the reason

behind this is uncritical acceptance of it. Also he is talking

about the problems resulting from it. Option 5 is general and

exaggerated: the author does not call the ideology- pristine.

44. 2 Option 2 can be inferred from the 2nd para which talks of

antagonistic tendencies in poetry developing an allergic

reaction to intellectual self-consciousness. Options 1 and 4

are not indicated in the passage. In fact the debased Romantic

ideology is seen to inform American Poetry rather than being

rejected by it. Option 3 is also not seen to be happening. The

antagonistic tendencies favour acceptance rather than

moving into constructive criticism. Option 5 is not completely

substantiated by the passage.

45. 2 Heine, in the last para is in line with McGanns approach. He is

questioning the immediate relevance of far-removed texts or

the source texts which were considered the main influences

in German Romanticism. So like McGann, he is generating

skepticism which would lead to criticism. Options 1 and 3

differ from the purport of the last paragraph. Options 4 and 5

miss the point and are exaggerated.

46. 3 In sentence B we would use send word to indicate that a

message is being sent. In D the correct expression to be used

is give ear to.

47. 5 All the sentences are grammatically correct. The only confusion

might arise while looking at the phrase, similar twins. At first

glance, it might appear to be incorrect however, the expression

is correct and means monozygotic twins.

48. 4 In A, it should be shortcomings as we are refering to

shortcomings in various fields. In E between should be used

instead of among as the countries-France, Italy, Austria and

Germany are distinct entities which are seen as points that

define the boundaries of Switzerland.

49. 5 Options 1 and 2 are entirely the views of Wallace and not

the author. Options 3 and 4 cannot be validated by the passage.

50. 4 The question is asking the reason for the numerous variations

in species and not just the reason for variation. Option 1 is

definitely a reason for the variation but it does not explain the

reason for the numerous variations. Option 2 is too specific

an answer. Option 3 cannot be inferred from the passage.

The passage nowhere states that species cannot adapt to

just one or two conditions. Option 5 talks about the pressure

of natural condition. But unless the conditions change and

this change is diverse there would be no pressure created

to adapt and develop numerous variations. Option 4 answers

the question. The chief reason for the numerous variations is

that the changes in natural conditions which create pressure

on species to adapt are diverse. Hence the variations are

numerous.

51. 3 Refer to the 2nd paragraph. Options 1, 2 and 5 represent

possibilities which depend on other conditions or assumptions.

Option 4 is not indicated in the passage. Option 3 is a definite

outcome of the intensified conditions.

52. 2 The paragraph ends on the completion of an idea that everyday

life is inextricably bound together by the music. Choices (1),

(3) and (5) seem like a repetition of this idea. Choice (4) talks

about cultural revolution which seems disjoint as per the

theme of the paragraph. The paragraph talks about the social

context of music-making in Tibetan culture. Choice (2) is best

in line with the theme which is indicated at the startdisruption

in cultural life due to the ban.

53. 1 (3), (4) and (5) talk about education, awareness and

introduction of modern science which seem like abrupt ideas

after the paragraph. (2) is disjointed from the flow of ideas in

the paragraph. (1) continues the idea of ostracization-by talking

about repatriation.

54. 3 The paragraph has introduced Johnston Central Library. After

this, choice (3) is the best to continue the paragraph-the main

clue being the less intimidating part! Choices (2) and (4) seem

to be good choices but are also subtly intimidating. Humbler

and friendlier go well with the tone of choice (3) rather than

choice (2). Choice (1) refers to the overall ambience of a

library in general whereas the paragraph specifically mentions

the ambience of the Johnston Central library. Therefore, it

does not continue the flow of thought as per the last lines of

the paragraph.

55. 4 Option 1 cannot be inferred as the meaning of Lenins

statements or the single directive is interpreted by the author

as making organizations parallel. Option 1 is Cardans view

which is being refuted by the author. Option 2 cannot be

concluded as the author mentions that the Taylor system

was not introduced during Lenins lifetime. It could have

been introduced later. Option 3 is not indicated or implied in the

passage. Option 5 is again Cardans view which is being

refuted by the author in the second last para. Option 4 is

something to which the author would agree as he refutes

Cardans argument by interpreting the meaning of Lenins

statement as Organizations should be parallel.

56. 1 Option 1 is correct. Statement A is what the author mainly tries

to indicate as the flaw in Cardans reasoning. The terms

parallel organizations and discipline etc. carried a different

meaning when seen in a particular context: when the state

was four months old. The terms when taken for their literal

meaning lead to Cardans incorrect interpretation. Statement

C is also correct as factual data is used by the author to delink

cause and effect. For example, the subjective-objective

connection is delinked by the author in the 2nd last para by

pointing to where capitalism originated. B and D are only

referred to and neither discussed nor described by the author.

57. 3 The author is totally denouncing or dismissing Cardans views.

He calls them a lie. The tone is extreme. The author does not

appear frustrated. Argumentative is the method used by the

author and not his attitude. Questioning is a mild tone wheares

the authors tone is extreme here.The author is not regretful

of anything here- regret is normally felt for ones own wrong

actions. Dismissive is appropriate here as the author is

totally dismissing Cardans views.

58. 5 The argument clearly states that 'community pressure is

exerted' on the people who win the jackpot throughout the

Kyakya Island community. It then goes on to illustrate the

differences in the behaviour of the urbanites and people from

the rural community while spending their earnings from the

jackpots. The question asks us to provide a reason for the

difference in the behaviour of both the peoples. Option (1) to

an extent, weakens the argument. Options (2), (3) and (4) do

not provide any plausible reason for the difference between

the behaviour of the people from the two communities. Option

(5) conforms to the premise of community pressure being

exerted on the jackpot winners. It can be safely concluded

from the option that the community pressure exerted on the

rural population is more than their urban counterparts, which

makes the people in the countryside to share their 'good

fortune' with their neighbours.

59. 2 The argument speaks of Nishant's predicament on the matter

of making his grandmother's will public or not. The argument

further provides the conclusion that after due consideration

Nishant decided against making the will public. The question

asks us to provide an reason which governed Nishant's

decision. Option (1) is not the answer as it does not affect

Nishant's decision on the will. Option (2) is the correct answer-

choice as it aptly governs Nishant's decision not to make the

will public. In case Nishant would have decided to make the

will public, Rishi would have wasted the money, which

eventually would have benefited no one. However, by not

making the will public, Nishant empowered his mother who

would use the money to benefit herself and others. Thus, this

acted as a reason for Nishant to decide on the will as he

wanted it to benefit the maximum number of people, harming

no one. Option (3) is a generic statement, which does not

affects the argument. Option (4) is incorrect as Nishant violates

the promise by not making the will public. Option (5) suggests

of a decision in favour of the choice that 'harms no one and

benefits some' over the one that 'harms some and benefits

none'. However, the argument does not, in any manner,

suggests that had the money in the will gone to Rishi, it would

have harmed anyone.

60. 1 The argument restricts the rest-house owners to only two

ways for increasing profits- either by adding more rooms or

by enhancing the already existing infrastructure. Then, the

argument also rules out the expansion of rest house capacity.

This leaves the owners with only one way- 'improving what

is already there'. To complete the argument, a reason must be

provided for the guest- house owners' inability to increase

their profits. Option (1) provides an apt reason as it states

that the rest houses are in their best shape and offer luxury to

the extent beyond which even the wealthy customers would

not pay. Thus, it rules out maximizing profitability through any

improvement to the already existing structures. In option (2)

Increasing the occupancy is not one of the two given ways

of increasing profitability. Option (3) does not address the

issue of profitability. Option (4) is a way-ward assumption

that lies beyond the scope of the argument. Option (5) does

not address the key issue in the argument and lies beyond the

theme of the argument.

61. 3 Option (1) states that the step may help the Taj Hotel to increase

its profits. However, it doesnt address the core issue.

Option (2) is not tackling the real problem. The issue is to

increase the profitability. Maintaining something at a lesser

cost does not necessarily guarantee profits. It may just happen

that the mini bars, which have a higher maintenance cost,

might generate higher profits.

Option (3) is the correct option as it states clearly that

maintaining mini-bars is a loss making activity.

Option (4) does not take profitability into account.

Option (5) states that the Oberai Hotels profitability is more

but we cannot deduce whether the profitability comes from

empty refrigerators.

62. 1 The argument clearly states the incompetence of Gautam as

a detective. To weaken the claim in the argument, we would

have to provide information that proves Gautam to be a

competent detective. Option (1) fulfills this purpose, hence it

becomes the correct answer-choice. Option (2) is a far fetched

assumption. Options (3) and (4) strengthen the argument.

Option (5) lies beyond the scope of information given in the

argument as it talks of a situation which is distinctively different,

hence it has no impact on the argument.

63. 2 Phlegmatically unraveling as well as the harsh treatment of

the film make it explicit that the unraveling is non-sentimental

and stoic. Option 1 is incorrect. Option 3 becomes excessive

as a harsh/stoic treatment does not mean cruel undertones.

Option 4 is talking about the intention behind unraveling. Option

5 is talking about the effect of the unraveling on the audience.

64. 2 Except for option (2), all the other options count as remarkable

features of the movie Samson & Delilah.

65. 5 Option 1 generalizes the meaning of real characters from the

specific context. By real, what is meant is that which is close

to the actual real life situation and not those without overt

emotion. Option 2 cannot be inferred as nothing has been

mentioned about the experience of the characters. By painful

the author is referring to his and the viewers experience of

the movie. Also painful with reference to acting would mean

a role which demands effort and not literal pain. Option 4

again distorts things. The critics choked on superlatives and

not on pain and emotion. Option 5 can be clearly inferred as

the author emphasizes the real characters and also their

effect on the audience and the critics.

66. 2 Circumspect refers to one who is cautious; it is difficult to

cheat or gull such a person. In option 1 loquacious refers to

one who is very talkative or garrulous. The pair does not

demonstrate a relationship similar to the stem pair. In option

(2), vigilant refers to one who is alert or watchful; it is difficult

to ambush such a person. The relationship demonstrated in

the pair is similar to the one in the stem pair. In option (3), the

word pair doesnt exhibit any relationship - Arabesque means

an ornate design of intertwined floral, foliate, and geometric

figures. Emphasize means to given emphasis to. In option

(4), dilemmatic refers to a situation where one requires to

make a choice between options that are or seem equally

unfavourable or mutually exclusive. In option (5) taciturn refers

to one who is habitually reserved; goad means to provoke

someone to take some kind of action, usually in anger. The

relationship exhibited in the stem-pair is not evident here.

67. 5 Tourniquet checks the flow of blood. Similarly, dam checks

the flow of water. Bucket does not control a well. Similarly,

the relationship between bridge:river, antiseptic : surgery

and pressure : air do not exhibit the relationship demonstrated

by the question statement.

68. 4 Relapse means to regress after partial recovery from illness.

Convalescence means to return to health and strength after

illness. The relationship in this pair is of antonyms. In option

(1), Exhibitionism refers to the act or practice of deliberately

behaving so as to attract attention. Suspiciousness is not

related to Exhibitionism. In option (2), Moral and Principle do

not demonstrate a relationship similar to the one in the stem-

pair. In option (3), Dissonance and Euphony do not have the

same relationship as demonstrated in the stem-pair. Although,

they have an antonymous relationship, Dissonance does not

convey a sense of regression as is conveyed by Relapse in

the stem-pair. In option (4) Recidivism, which means a habitual

relapse in crime has an antonymous relationship to

Rehabilitation; one of the meanings of Rehabilitation is to

restore to useful and constructive activity. Hence, (4)

becomes the correct answer choice. In option (5), Prolificacy

and Completion do not have the same relationship as the

stem pair.

69. 2 The tone of the question suggests that something is being

sacrificed for something else. Also, the usage of unfortunately

in the beginning, suggests something good being sacrificed.

Following this logic, options (4) and (5) can be ruled out.

Option (1) contains synonyms. Options (4) and (5) do not fit

the context. Option (3) cannot be the answer as

responsibilities will not, unfortunately, crowd out privileges.

Hence the answer is (2).

70. 1 Anomie means a lack of purpose or identity; it also means

rootlessness. Siddle means to move sideways, especially in

a sly or stealthy manner. From the first sentence we can

gauge the gloomy mood. Options (2), (3) and (4) do not carry

gloominess. Ominousness is not the right-fit for the first blank.

The author wants to highlight the gloomy mood, ominousness,

which means menacing or threatening is too extreme for that.

Also, distracted makes no sense in the sentence. Hence the

answer is (1).
