At a time when most other women in the society were _________ its norms, Rabia defiantly chose a different path and went on to become a national figure.
Question 1 Explanation:
The defiance of the girl indicates that she didn’t do what other women of her time were doing-i.e. ‘complying to the norms’. And the word for this ‘abiding to’ the norms is ‘conforming’. So, option C is the right answer. The meanings of the other words are: Fudging with-‘tampering with something’ Discerning-‘able to make or detect effects of great subtlety; sensitive’. Option A is not right as there is no indication of the women ‘regulating’ the norms, while one cannot ‘go through’ norms.
Giving thumbs down to the stringent immigration policy, the vice-chancellor stressed upon the urgent need to __________ the immigration regime to attract the best international students and academicians to the UK.
Question 2 Explanation:
The giving of ‘thumbs down’ to the stringent laws clearly tells that the vice chancellor wants to loosen the stringent immigration laws, hence he wants to ‘liberalise’ the immigration regime. Democratize is not the apt word here, as it is used in reference to national level policies or reforms. Simply denouncing, i.e. expressing a low opinion of something won’t change the scenario. To strengthen would be the opposite of the required action, while constructing is totally invalid as the regime is already in place.
The man who went to the luxury showroom to __________ buy the extravagant car, was able to cleverly whisk away the car after dodging the sales representative sent with him for the test drive.
Question 3 Explanation:
The incident depicted in the sentence tells us that the man was a fraud who pretended to be interested in buying a car, but actually had the intentions of taking it away. Hence, he had apparent intentions (meaning appearing as such but not necessarily so) to buy the car. The word out rightly means in a straightforward manner while evidently in an unmistakably clear manner. Obviously is a synonym of evidently but this is not the right pair of words as the meanings of these words are the opposite of the required sentiment.
One of the basic ______________ for organ transplant is the similarity of the blood groups of the donor and receiver.
Question 4 Explanation:
As there is the word basic before the blank, the answer is prerequisites- something required as a necessity. Any other word doesn’t hold sense if used in the sentence. Illation means reasoning involved in drawing a conclusion, presuppositions means assumptions, strictures means severe criticism. As we can see, only one word fits in the above blank.
Having stayed up all night, he felt extremely ____________, but nevertheless he managed to run four miles with my teammates.
Question 5 Explanation:
The person has stayed up all night, hence the word in the blank should describe the condition of the person, which must be extremely tired, so the word we chose is weary which means deficient in alertness or activity. The meanings of the other words are: 1. Indefatigable means just the opposite, vigorous means energetic. 2. Neurotic means affected with emotional disorder. 3. Disputatious means inclined to dispute or disagreeing.
