1. The forests are gone, brushed aside by a world rushing into _________, and now the trees exist only in our memories.

  • A. Destruction
  • B. Greenery
  • C. Modernism
  • D. Innovation
  • E. Freshness
Answer

C and D

Answer options, B and E are grossly incorrect because it is clearly mentioned that the forests are gone and therefore, the world cannot be rushing into either ‘greenery’ or ‘freshness’. Out of the remaining answer options, ‘modernism’ and ‘innovation’ are the only two words that mean the same and therefore, C and D are the correct answers.

2. The hallucinatory dreams and visions are succeeded by nostalgic, melancholy _________.

  • A. Nightmares
  • B. Ruminations
  • C. Cogitations
  • D. Phases
  • E. Actions
Answer

B and C

The word, ‘nightmares’ would render a significant meaning to the sentence when placed in the blank but no other word in the given list of answer options means the same as ‘nightmares’ and hence, A is incorrect. Out of the remaining answer options, ‘ruminations’ and ‘cogitations’ are the only two words that carry the same meaning and hence, B and C are the correct answers.

3. When the boy first appeared, the other students treated him with condescension and laughter, but the teacher watched him closely and did not share their _________ response.

  • A. Complementary
  • B. Flattering
  • C. Derisive
  • D. Respectful
  • E. Ridiculing
Answer

C and E

It has been clearly brought out that the boy was treated with condescension and laughter. This means that the response of the other students towards the boy was far from ‘complementary’, ‘flattering’ or ‘respectful’. Therefore, C and E are the correct answers as ‘derisive’ and ‘ridiculing’ fit in well with the meaning being conveyed by the sentence.
