Solutions:

1) Answer (B)
Option a and d are gramatically incorrect as “The running of large business” is singular and hence should be followed by “consists.” Option c doesn’t make any sense as it is contextually incorrect. Option b is the most appropriate.

2) Answer (C)
Option a is incorrect as the usage of “feeling disdainful” is incorrect. Option d is also incorrect due to the usage of “felt disdain.” Option b is having a tense error as there is a present form used in the sentence.

3) Answer (A)
Option d is incorrect as “to fatalism” is incorrect, option b is incorrect as the usage of “falling back” is incorrect. Option c is incorrect as “falling back on fatalism” is singular and hence the correct usage should be “explanation” rather than “explanations.”

4) Answer (D)
The correct usage would be “The creativity is regarded not only as” Or in order to infer the correct usage we would break the sentence into 2 parts “Creativity in any field is regarded as valuable in itself and also regarded as a service to the nation”.

5) Answer (B)
In this sentence, the ideal situation is satisfactory. “Reflection” should precede action and thought should facilitate behaviour.
