Answers :

1) Answer: a)

contempt, attributing, petitions

Contempt means disregard or disrespect shown towards someone.

2) Answer: a)

outgoing, abdication, visited

Abdication means voluntary retirement or renunciation from an official post.

3) Answer: d)

travelled, expressing, thorny

Options A and D are close but within the context of the statement, option D is suitable here.

4) Answer: d)

lack, attitudes, contribute

Lack and dearth are synonymous to each other but you should use ‘contribute’ instead of ‘render’ in the 3rd gap.

5) Answer: a)

revealing, legislation, prohibiting

Keeping in mind the context of the passage, only A is suitable, as for D ‘cancelling’ is not an appropriate alternative.

6) Answer: b)

refuse, demand, despite

Both despite and although are suitable connectors but for a plural entity you cannot use ‘has’.

7) Answer: c)

joined, overseen, spearheaded

Spearhead means to lead. Option D is discarded because  you cannot use ‘failed’ in the current context.

8) Answer: d)

manifesto, ensure ,available

Manifesto is more appropriate than propaganda here. To “ensure” that something happens is to make certain that it does, and to “insure” is to issue an insurance policy.

9) Answer: c)

affidavit, construed ,occupies

Option C is the most suitable combination of all the choices. Affidavit is more suitable than complaint here.

10) Answer: a)

Majority is more suitable than maximum when you’re talking about a group of entities.
