Direction (1-10): In a passage given below there are 10 blanks, each followed by a word given in bold. Every blank has four alternative words given in options (A), (B), (C) and (D).

Aadhaar, India’s project to issue every resident a unique, biometrically verifiable identification number, is big, bold and in many ways brilliant. Aadhaar IDs provide a quick, easy and theoretically foolproof way for civil servants and firms to know for sure with whom they are dealing. Officials say the scheme allows better targeting of welfare. Businesses love how easy it makes______ (1) ________ [comprehending] credit histories and vetting job applicants, among other things. An Aadhaar card allowed your correspondent to apply for and walk away with a driver’s license in under half an hour. It provides proof of address and other data that in other countries—and in pre-Aadhaar India—would require a _____ (2) ______ [collection] of documents. But civil libertarians have long worried that the government or, worse, crooks who gain access to the data will put Aadhaar to nefarious use. Some 200 government entities have been _____ (3)_____[shamed] for publishing private Aadhaar data, and more than one private firm with licensed access to Aadhaar data has been caught using it for______(4)_______ [reasons]other than those agreed. Now proof has emerged that the whole database is not as water tight as claimed. Earlier this month the Tribune, an English-language daily, revealed that for $8 or so a reporter had bought illegal access to the entire Aadhaar database, barring cardholders’ finger prints and iris scans.

The ensuing outcry made headlines, and UIDAI quickly changed its tune, _______ (5) _______ [showing] its commitment to press freedom and to finding the real culprits. On January 10th it quietly added more layers of security. When fully applied in June, UIDAI’s new system will allow cardholders to hide their actual 12-digit Aadhaar number behind a changeable virtual ID code. It will also be far more selective about who has access to what level of data. The changes may have come just in time. The scandal in the press, experts say, _______ (6) ________ [verified] only one of Aadhaar’s weaknesses, which UIDAI had already tried to fix.

The breach exploited by the Tribune was through one of tens of thousands of private Aadhaar registration providers who had been licensed to process ID applications an understandable expedient given the huge number of applicants. In a tacit admission of_____ (7) ________ [affair], UIDAI has revoked many of these private licenses, but apparently forgot also to revoke the former license-holders’ access to its data base. Aadhaar is now _____ (8) _______ [related] to more than 150 other databases, including less secure and more detailed data on residents stored by several Indian states. Some of these state troves, disturbingly, include information on religious _______ (9) _______ [association] and use mobile phone data to________(10)_________[follow]citizens’ movements.
