Answers :

Directions (1-5) :

1) Answer: C

The statement talks aboutproviding or giving a place to level playing field to the private entities in the Space sector. Here option A cannot be used as it is the same word and we are asked to use a different word with the same meaning. Option B and D are antonym to the given word so that is ruled out. Option C is the correct word as it is the synonym of the word ‘provide’.
Hence, option C is correct.

2) Answer: D

The statement talks about the government making the provision to allow private players to use ISRO facilities. Here option C is ruled out as it is out of context. Option A and B are antonym to the given word which does not make it contextually or grammatically correct.

Hence, option D is correct.

3) Answer: A

9) Answer: C

In the given text if we observe, we see that the phrase ‘due climate change at the age of 700’ here preposition after ‘due’ is missing which makes it grammatically incorrect. Thus ‘to’ is added to the phrase it makes sense. Thus the correct phrase will be ‘due to climate change at the age of 700’.

Hence the Correct option is C in the question.

10) Answer: D

In the given text if we observe, we see that the phrase ‘pearl have been discovered on an island’ here verb ‘have’ is incorrect as it used when we use noun in plural form.
