1. Beyond Kabul, security must come from agreements between the Afghan war lords and will be a test of their _________ for peace and security in their regions.

  • A. Disdain
  • B. Opposition
  • C. Desire
  • D. Apathy
  • E. Aspiration
Answer

C and E

The missing word describes the attitude of the Afghan warlords towards establishment of peace and security in their regions. Since, we need to choose two words such that placing either of them in the blank renders the same meaning to the sentence, it is evident that C and E are the correct answers as these are the only two words from the given list of answer options that carry the same meaning.

2. If the B-Schools usher in such similar changes, the results can be very tangible and extremely _________ to all concerned.

  • A. Imperceptible
  • B. Beneficial
  • C. Indiscernible
  • D. Propitious
  • E. Detrimental
Answer

B and D

It is clear that the results being discussed in the sentence are tangible. The missing word describes another aspect of the results. Hence, it is obvious that the missing word will not carry the same meaning as tangible and neither can the missing word be an antonym of tangible. Therefore, A and C are incorrect. Beneficial and propitious are synonyms and therefore, B and D are the correct answers.

3. Whatever the public _________, the practice that is being followed is always based on half- measures, that is, of leaving things half done.

  • A. Rhetoric
  • B. Reaction
  • C. Oratory
  • D. Philosophy
  • E. Ardour
Answer

A and C

All the given words can be used in the blank to impart a logical meaning to the sentence. Out of all the given answer options, rhetoric and oratory are the only synonyms and placing either of them in the sentence completes the meaning of the sentence as a whole and therefore, A and C are the correct answers.
