  • A. Imprudent
  • B. Rash
  • C. Reasonable
  • D. Rational
  • E. Admired
Answer

C and D

The word cautious describes the form of socialism being discussed. The missing word describes another aspect of the same form of socialism. This makes it evident that the missing word cannot mean the same as cautious and neither can it be an antonym of cautious. Therefore, A and B are clearly incorrect. Reasonable and rational are synonyms and therefore, C and D are the correct answers.

2. What it _________ to do, it promises to do quickly, and holds out hope to the enthusiastic of seeing the whole of their aspirations realized in their own time and at a blow.

  • A. Professes
  • B. Declares
  • C. Desires
  • D. Abhors
  • E. Conceives
Answer

A and B

At the first reading it appears that the missing word most likely means stating something. It cannot be a word like abhor because it is being promised to be done quickly. It can be a word like desire, but desire has no synonym in the given list. In view of the above, it is evident that A and B are the correct answers.

3. He must _________ those who play this game on the strength of their own private opinion as they are the ones who would stand out as winners.

  • E. Endorse
Answer

C and E

The missing word is being used to describe how the people who play this game are to be treated. Out of all the given options, acknowledge and endorse are the only words that carry the same meaning and placing either of them in the blank imparts the same meaning to the sentence. Therefore, C and E are the correct answer options.
