Your answers are highlighted below.
Question 1
But ________ are now regularly written not just for tools but well-established practices, organizations and institutions, not all of which seem to be ________ away.
A
reports, withering
B
stories, trading
C
books, dying
D
obituaries, fading
Question 1 Explanation: 
In this case, the second blank exhibits a negative sentiment and all the options (other than trading) point to this. The use of ‘but’ and ‘not all’ in the sentence helps us identify that we require a pair of opposite sentiments. This is accomplished by obituaries and fading. These words give us the pair of opposite sentiments we require.
Question 2
Football evokes a ________ response in India compared to cricket, that almost ________ the nation.
A
tepid..boils
B
lukewarm…electrifies
C
turbid…fascinates
D
apocryphal…. genuinely fascinates
Question 2 Explanation: 
In the given case, we need a pair of antonyms which reflect opposite sentiments. In this case, football obviously does not generate a warm response in India, contrary to cricket. The pair of words that fits in perfectly is option 2. The other options do not offer the pair of words that is required in this case. All of them have one word that fits a blank but the second one does not do so.
Question 3
Social studies, science matters of health and safety, the very atmosphere of the classroom; these areas are few of the ________ for the ________ of proper emotional reactions.
A
things…growth
B
fertile areas…basis
C
fertile fields..inculcation
D
important areas…formation
Question 3 Explanation: 
What would we call social studies or matters of health and safety? Things or areas? Obviously, these are areas which are important. And secondly, they are important for the formation of emotional reactions. That is their purpose. The words fertile or things are grossly incorrect in the given context.
Question 4
Learning is more efficient when it is ________. It is less efficient when it is ________ .
A
fast … slow
B
rapid..turtle-slow
C
tedious…like a joy ride
D
fun…drudgery
Question 4 Explanation: 
In the given case, we need a positive word in the first blank. And on top of that, we need a word that gels well the sentiment of effective learning. Speedy or rapid learning may not necessarily be efficient. Drudgery means hard monotonous routine work and is the opposite of fun learning.
Question 5
Education is central because electronic networks and software-driven technologies are beginning to ________ the economic barriers between nations.
A
breakdown
B
break
C
crumble
D
dismantle
Question 5 Explanation: 
The correct answer for this question is option A. It shows how economic barriers between nations are being to reduce. Options B, C and D carry a very strong negative sentiment and represent something which is wrong; whereas we simply need a word that shows how barriers are being breached.
