1. We all have _________ beliefs because we are not always aware of everything our beliefs entail.

  • A. Knowledgeable
  • B. Alert
  • C. Inconsistent
  • D. Contradictory
  • E. Alive
Answer

C and D

It is being stated that we are not always aware of everything our beliefs involve and therefore, the beliefs can be described by the missing word. Therefore, the beliefs cannot be described as ‘knowledgeable’, ‘alert’ or ‘alive’. Hence, the correct answers are C and D as ‘inconsistent’ and ‘contradictory’ mean the same and they aptly describe the beliefs as brought out in the sentence.

2. Irrespective of the time taken to arrive at the solution, this answer too has some _________.

  • A. Loopholes
  • B. Explanation
  • C. Reply
  • D. Ambiguity
  • E. Certainty
Answer

A and D

The missing word is describing some aspect of the answer which is present despite the time taken to arrive at the solution. C is grossly incorrect as placing it in the blank will render the sentence meaningless. Out of the remaining options, ‘loopholes’ and ‘ambiguity’ are the only two words that carry the same meaning and they complete the intended meaning of the sentence. Therefore, A and D are the correct answers.

3. Think also, for a moment, of the change in the _________ and attitude of the Supreme Court.

  • A. Approach
  • B. Stance
  • C. Outlook
  • D. Functioning
  • E. Operation
Answer

D and E

The words, ‘approach’, ‘stance’ and ‘outlook’ mean the same and placing either of them in the sentence will render the same meaning to the sentence. However, all these three words carry the same meaning as ‘attitude’ which is already present in the sentence. Therefore, D and E are the correct answers as ‘functioning’ and ‘operation’ also mean the same and fit in well with the meaning being conveyed by the remaining sentence.
