Answers :

Directions (1-5) :

1) Answer: A

The statements I and II refers to any certain situation and the use of pacifist which means “person who believes wars and violence are unjustifiable” and vengeance means” act of punishment for a wrong or crime” makes us undoubtedly choose war in the first blank as it holds the nearest possibility of what can happen if these things occurs in directed way.  The second word “acknowledge” also fits as grammatically and contextually correct. Therefore, option A is the correct option.

2) Answer: B

In both the statements the word “diligently and custom” are best fit as compared to other options which are either r grammatically or contextually wrong. Therefore, option B is the correct answer.

3) Answer: A

Solution: In the first statement words “Identified and Discussion” and “Achieved and gathering” is contextually and grammatically wrong whereas in second statement option both the above mention sets of words are grammatically wrong and “closed and speech” is contextually wrong. Therefore, option A is the correct option.

4) Answer: D

In first statement, word pairs “Willing and since” and “Anxious and as” are out of context, where as in the second statement, along with the above pair of words, the pair of “Happy and by” are grammatically wrong and also does injustice to the tone of the statement. Therefore option D is the correct answer.

5) Answer: A

In statement I, the words ‘designed and erect’, ‘solved and delineate’ or ‘Established and instigate’ contextually wrong and holds same for the statement II. Therefore, option A is the correct answer.
