Answers & Solutions:
1) Answer (B)
Let us analyze what the author intends to convey through the given sentence.
‘Although these injuries are not fatal,……’.
The author acknowledges that the injuries are not fatal. By using the word ‘although’, the author conveys that he expects something to be done but that is not the case. The part that completes the sentence should capture this point.
‘they are not ranked among top causes of death’. Had the option been ‘they are ranked …’, we could have used this option to fill the blank. The given option cannot be used since it contradicts the term ‘although’ used in the first part of the sentence.
‘they do not get reported’. There is nothing peculiar about minor injuries going unreported. This option will also make the usage of although in the first part of the sentence incorrect and hence, option D can be eliminated as well.
‘there is no proof of the same’. This statement can be used to fill the blank. Let us check the other option and choose the most appropriate one between the two.
‘they are certainly incapacitating and tragic’. This option aptly concludes by continuing the chain of thought. Though the injuries are not life threatening, they are certainly crippling. Therefore, option B is deemed better than option C and hence, option C is the right answer.
2) Answer (A)
3) Answer (A)
The paragraph says that it is not a crisis. So, option c) is wrong. Also, the frontier has not been reached and the it is not a success story. So, options b) and d) are also incorrect concluding statements. The best concluding sentence is a).
4) Answer (B)
The given sentence talks about how entrepreneurs are never satisfied and they are always looking for something more innovative to shape the future. The quote used by the executive should be in line with this idea. C is completely unrelated to this while A distorts the meaning. Among B and D, the former one is a better choice because D talks about the business aspects which is nowhere implied in the given sentence. Hence B is the correct answer.
5) Answer (D)
The sentence talks about breaking with the predominant cultural, political and social beliefs and values. In order to reconstruct something, the thing should first be broken. Thus, D logically follows the sentence.
Sentence A is incorrect as it is vague.
B is also incorrect as there is no talks of malaise in the society in the sentence.
C can also be eliminated for the same reason as B.
6) Answer (D)
As the sentence in the question talks about energy tax to raise funds, it must be for some activity which will help them come out of the energy constraints. Thus, Option D is the best fit as the concluding part.
