1) Answer: B
Statement I and III both are incorrect because in statement I the word “Natural” means in accordance with nature, which does not fit here. The correct answer will be “Nature”. Nature enthusiast means people who are nature lovers. Natural enthusiasts don’t make any sense here.
Statement III is also incorrect because the word “packaging” is inappropriate, it means a process of enclosing things by keeping them safely. The right word will be “package” which sit best with complete and means to have it all. When all is found in something or somebody it is described as a complete package. Therefore statement I and III are the correct answers.
2) Answer: C
Statement I and IV both are incorrect. In statement I the word “arrives” will be changed to arrival. Arrives is a verb and a verb is grammatically incorrect if it sits there. So noun arrival will be the right answer.
Statement IV is also incorrect where the word “controllability” is wrong. It means the ability to control which does not give a sense to the whole sentence. Whereas out of control actually is a phrase which means things or situations which are no longer under management. Therefore statement I and IV are the correct answers
3) Answer: D
Statement II is incorrect because the word “Boots” seems odd. It is not at all the correct fit to the sentence. The correct word will be “boasts” which means exaggerating or standing out. Therefore, D is the correct option.
4) Answer: A
both the statements II and III are incorrect. In statement II the word “compromise” is inappropriate. The correct one is Comprises, which means to be made up of. The II statement means the league is made up of 11 clubs.
The III statement is also wrong because the idiom actually is Round-Robin-style and it means all play all, the contestants all play the whole thing.
5) Answer: B.
The statement III is incorrect because it has two inappropriate sentences. Both the words “bornplace” and “artist” are wrong. Birthplace and Artistic are the right forms to fit in the sentence, which gives it a proper meaning. Artistic is a describing word which fits in there and bornplace is not at all a word itself. Therefore, the statement III is correct.
