1. Surprisingly, the ants of each community all recognize one another, which is very _________.

  • A. Exceptional
  • B. Derogatory
  • C. Remarkable
  • D. Intelligent
  • E. Imprudent
Answer

A and C

It must be a very astonishing fact that the ants of each community recognise each other. This has also been endorsed by the usage of the word, ‘surprisingly’. The missing word is describing this very fact. Therefore, it is evident that the missing word should be close to ‘astonishing’ in meaning. This implies that A and C are the correct answers.

2. Nevertheless, once the theory had fully emerged acceptance was _________ and widespread.

  • A. Local
  • B. Quick
  • C. Limited
  • D. Speedy
  • E. Concentrated
Answer

B and D

It has been brought out that the acceptance was widespread. The missing word describes another aspect this acceptance. This implies that A, C and E are clearly incorrect as the acceptance cannot be widespread and limited, local or concentrated at the same time. Therefore, it is evident that B and D are the correct answers as ‘quick’ and ‘speedy’ complete the meaning of the sentence as a whole.

3. It was seen that many others _________ different explanations of the accumulated evidence.

  • A. Analysed
  • B. Gathered
  • C. Proffered
  • D. Elucidated
  • E. Suggested
Answer

C and E

The missing word describes what others did in respect of the explanations of the evidence. ‘Elucidate’ would be an incorrect option for placing in the blank as ‘elucidate’ and ‘explain’ mean the same and it is the evidence which is being explained; the explanations cannot be explained further. Out of the remaining answer options, ‘proffered’ and ‘suggested’ are the only two words that carry the same meaning and hence, C and E are the correct answers.
