Question 7: Arrange sentences A, B, C and D between sentences 1 and 6 to form a logical sequence of six sentences.
1. Good literary magazines have always been good because of their editors.
A. Furthermore, to edit by committee, as it were, would prevent any magazine from finding its own identity.

C. But the number of editors one can have for a magazine should also be determined by the number of contributions to it.
D. To have four editors for an issue that contains only seven contributions, it is a bit silly to start with.
6. However, in spite of this anomaly, the magazine does acquire merit in its attempt to give a comprehensive view of the Indian literary scene as it is today.





Question 8: Arrange sentences A, B, C and D between sentences 1 and 6 to form a logical sequence of six sentences.1. It is the success story of the Indian expatriate in the US which today hogs much of the media coverage in India.A. East and West, the twain have met quite comfortably in their person, thank you.B.

The festival of feature films and documentaries made by Americans of Indian descent being screened this fortnight goes a long way in filling those gaps.





Question 9: 1. The reconstruction of history by post-revolutionary science texts involves more than a multiplication of historical misconstructions.A. Because they aim quickly to acquaint the student with what the contemporary scientific community thinks it knows, textbooks treat the various experiments, concepts, laws, and theories of the current normal science as separately and as nearly seriatim as possible.B. Those misconstructions render revolutions invisible; the arrangement of the still visible material in science texts implies a process that, if it existed, would deny revolutions a function.C. But when combined with the generally unhistorical air of science writing and with the occasional systematic misconstruction, one impression is likely to follow.D. As pedagogy this technique of presentation is unexceptionable. 6. Science has reached its present state by a series of individual discoveries and inventions that, when gathered together, constitute the modem body of technical knowledge.





Question 10: The following sentences when properly arranged form a coherent paragraph. In the answer box, type the sequence of numbers for the rearranged sentences.
1. We know that at the beginning of 1580, the year in which Spenser went to Ireland, something under that title had been already begun and submitted to Gabriel Harvey’s judgment; and that among other literary projects, Spenser was intending to proceed with it.
2. But he took the idea with him to Ireland, and in Ireland he pursued it and carried it out.
3. But beyond the mere name, we know nothing, at this time, of Spenser’s proposed ‘Faery Queen’.
4. The ‘Faery Queen’ is heard of very early in Spenser’s literary course.
5. Harvey’s criticisms on it tell us nothing of its general plan or its numbers.
6. Whether the first sketch had been decided upon, whether the new stanza, Spenser’s original creation, and its peculiar beauty and instrument, had yet been invented by him, while he had been trying experiments in metre in the ‘Shepherd’s Calendar’, we have no means of determining.

6) Answer (C)

CA is a pair because C introduces the desktop computer and A talks about the computer parts in detail.

Just before the last sentence A must come because sentence 6 talks about the software, an idea that is introduced in sentence A.

Among the given options, only option C satisfies the above conditions.

7) Answer (B)

The first sentence talks about magazines. The same idea is continued in sentence B. Hence, B follows the first sentence.

CD is a pair because the “number of editors” concept is introduced in C and then an example is taken in D.

Hence, BCDA is the answer.

8) Answer (C)

The pronoun “it” in statement B refers to the media attention mentioned in statement 1. Hence, 1-B are a pair. Statements A and D describe the NRIs introduced in B and hence should come after B. As A concludes from the outward characteristics mentioned in D, it should follow D. C mentions the gap in information provided about NRIs and 6 mentions how the film festival is filling those gaps. Hence, C-6 are a pair. Hence, the order is 1BDAC6.

9) Answer (A)

B is the first sentence in the sequence. “Misconstructions” is the key word here. In (1), there is a mention of “misconstructions” which is referred to again in B. Since, only option A mentions B first in the list, option A is the right answer.

10) Answer: 413562

The first sentence of the paragraph is 4. It introduces the topic of the paragraph – Faery Queen. This is followed by sentence 1, which traces the history and name of Faery Queen. This is then followed by sentence 3, which talks about how nothing beyond the name is known about Spenser’s project. This idea is continued in sentences 5 and 6. The last sentence is 2, which concludes the paragraph. It talks about how Spencer took the idea of the project with him to Ireland and implemented it there.
