1. A positive attitude not only makes us (1) _________, but it also makes us open to all the opportunities that come our way. Successful people have positivity radiating from them and they never let go of any opportunity. It is these minute opportunities that have made them climb their success ladders. Successful people also value their time. They are well (2) ___________ and planned for the day. Not only that, but they also value the time of others and fulfill their deadlines (3) ___________. When going for a meeting, they are always on time and well planned.

Blank 1: capable, enthusiastic, successful

Blank 2: prioritized, punctual, focused

Blank 3: efficiently, accordingly, timely

Correct Answer: successful, prioritized, accordingly

Explanation: The first two sentences convey the same meaning. Where the second sentence says that successful people radiate positivity and grab every opportunity, the first says that a positive attitude makes you successful and open to opportunities. In the remaining paragraph also, successful people are being discussed. Hence, the suitable answer for the first blank is ‘successful’. For the second blank, the option ‘focused’ is illogical. The word ‘punctual’ conveys the same sense that the last sentence does and hence we reject it. The option ‘prioritized’ is correct. Successful people value their time and hence set their priorities accordingly and plan for the day. For the last blank, we need to observe the sentence carefully. The author says that successful people value the time of others and fulfill their deadlines. The option ‘timely’ would lead to repetition. The option ‘accordingly’ is more suitable than ‘efficiently’ is. While ‘efficiently’ would support proficiency, ‘accordingly’ supports the notion of their giving value to the time of others. The correct answer is thus ‘accordingly’.

2. There are good reasons for (1) ___________. Afghanistan is the most ambitious project that the international community will have ever undertaken. And as a senior American official said, “The one thing that seems to (2) ___________ Afghans over long period of time is they don’t much like foreigners.” But consider what the foreigners were up to in the past. The British and the Russians tried to colonize the place. The Arabs turned it into a base for international terrorism. Maybe now that the foreigners are coming for quite different reasons, the (3) ____________ will be more welcoming.

Blank 1: pessimism, reform, anxiety

Blank 2: unite, disturb, frustrate

Blank 3: Arabs, locals, citizens

Correct Answer: pessimism, unite, locals

Explanation: The author is saying that Afghanistan is the most ambitious project of the international community. Earlier foreigners tried to colonize it and they were not much welcome. Afghans were united in their dislike for foreigners. The Arabs gave terrorism to the county and maybe people welcome the international community now for they can bring prosperity to them. The suitable words for the first three blanks are ‘pessimism’, ‘unite’ and ‘locals’. We have reasons to be positive. For long Afghans were united in their dislike for foreigners. Earlier we were not welcome by locals and now they might be more welcoming.
