1. In the automotive world, purchasing management is becoming an increasingly (1) _________ job. Purchasing management (2) ___________ deals with the (3) ___________ buying of all products used by a company, from office supplies to warehouses. As automotive companies expand and set up factories and warehouses on the international scene, purchasing managers have to work with other managers by phone or Internet to co-ordinate purchasing down to the smallest detail.

Blank 1: challenging, complex, demanding

Blank 2: typically, essentially, primarily

Blank 3: rational, corporate, wholesale,

Correct Answer: complex, essentially, corporate

Explanation: For the first blank, the correct answer option is ‘complex’. The last sentence of the paragraph justifies this. In the last sentence, the author shows that since automotive companies are expanding, purchasing managers have to communicate with other managers and co-ordinate purchases. There are many details involved in this and hence the ‘management is becoming increasingly complex’. For the second blank, we reject the option ‘typically’ because it means conforming to a particular type. We do not need to know what purchasing management typically involves as we are not making any comparisons or drawing a contrast; the other options are more suitable. We ultimately choose ‘essentially’ over ‘primarily’. The author intends to define what purchasing management is. He explains what it means in essence or what is basic to purchasing management, he does not explain what it chiefly involves, indicating that there are other aspects also of the job. Purchasing management essentially involves purchasing products for the company and the process is further explained in the last sentence. For the last blank, the best answer option is ‘corporate’. Purchasing management is buying in a corporate set-up, whether it is ‘wholesale’ purchase or ‘rational’ or not is not of our concern. Hence, the correct answer is ‘corporate’.

2. Environmental health practitioners might have to be (1) _____________ workers and change agents in addition to their roles of (2) __________ and preventing environmental health problems. Possessing knowledge alone might not help them provide valuable services in their field. They will have to work with an environmental health team to create (3) ________________ about environmental health issues among the community, and show how the locality can be made a better place to live and work.

Blank 1: social, community, public

Blank 2: altering, tackling, identifying

Blank 3: concern, consciousness, awareness

Correct Answer: community, identifying, awareness

Explanation: The hint towards the correct fill for the first blank lies in the last sentence. The author says that environmental health practitioners might have to be change agents by showing how the locality can be made a better place. The last sentence explains what they might have to do in addition to their roles. They might have to be ‘community’ workers by discussing environmental health issues among the ‘community’. Hence, we directly disregard other options. For the second blank, we select the option ‘identifying’. The role of an environment health practitioner is to identify the problem and prevent it from recurrence. The prevention can be done through making some ‘alterations’ and the whole process of identification and prevention collectively amounts to ‘tackling’ the problem. For the last blank, we select the option ‘awareness’. ‘Awareness’ and ‘consciousness’ are the only options related with knowledge about environment. While awareness is the first step, consciousness is the second. A person who is aware of the issue shall ultimately become conscious and responsible. Hence, we select ‘awareness’ to show the initialization of the process.
