1. Time is testimony to the fact that even the most _________ meditation acquires its meaning by relating back to man’s existence here and now.

  • A. Ignorant
  • B. Vague
  • C. Profound
  • D. Philosophical
  • E. Futile
Answer

C and D

It is evident that the missing word explains the type of meditation that acquires its meaning by relating to man’s existence. This implies that the missing word cannot be something that means meaningless. Therefore, the words vague and futile do not fit in the sentence. Profound and philosophical are synonyms and they complete the meaning of the sentence as a whole when either of them is placed in the blank and hence, C and D are the correct answers.

2. It has been seen that so far there has been insignificant _________ by the victors which is indeed a marked shift in behaviour.

  • A. Reprisal
  • B. Forfeiture
  • C. Retaliation
  • D. Condemnation
  • E. Jubilation
Answer

A and C

The missing word describes an action taken by the victors. All of the given options will fit well in the blank in order to make the sentence meaningful. However, among all the given options, the words reprisal and retaliation are the only two words that carry the same meaning. Therefore, A and C are the correct answers.

3. It is heartening to note that the neighbouring countries are no longer competing to _________ the country, as they did in the past, but working to stabilize it.

  • A. Support
  • B. Improve
  • C. Destabilize
  • D. Subvert
  • E. Annihilate
Answer

C and D

A careful reading of the sentence makes it apparent that the missing word is an antonym of stabilize as it has been clearly brought out that the neighbouring countries are now working to stabilize the country quite unlike what they were doing in the past. Therefore, A and B are clearly incorrect. Out of the remaining three options, subvert and destabilize are the only synonyms and they are also the antonyms of stabilize. Therefore, C and D are the correct answers.
