Direction (1-10): In a passage given below there are five blanks, Every blank has four alternative words given in options (a), (b), (c) and (d). You have to choose which pair of word will best suit to the respective blank.
As polio eradiction slides through the final stretch of a 30-year global campaign to wipe it out, a new worry has emerged: vaccine-derived cases of the ______(1)_______ disease. Such cases are extremely rare, but are attracting more notice as those caused by the wild virus itself have ____(2)______. In 2017 cases caused by vaccine-derived viruses _____(3)_______, for the first time, those caused by the wild version. The tally for 2018 shows a dramatic swing: 98 cases of vaccine-derived polio; 29 cases of the wild version. Polio vaccines come in two forms. The injectable version, used in rich countries, contains dead viruses and creates antibodies in the blood. Someone vaccinated with it who _____(4) ______ the wild virus is protected from the disease. But, for several weeks afterwards, the wild virus in that person’s gut can be passed on to people who are not ____(5)_____. The oral vaccine, by contrast, contains weakened live virus. Because the antibodies it creates take up residence in the gut, they battle there with any wild virus a vaccinated person might ingest, making further transmission less likely. The oral vaccine is therefore a better option in places, often poor countries, where wild polio viruses are common and vaccination rates are low. Moreover, someone vaccinated with the oral vaccine ____(6) _____ the weakened form of the virus for a couple of weeks. Anyone who comes into contact with this excreted virus also gains immunity, and can pass it on to others who are not immune. This sort of ____(7)_____ vaccination is a boon—but only up to a point. As the weakened virus from the vaccine jumps from one unvaccinated person to another, the chances increase that something will go wrong. Along the way, the virus _____(8)_____ and, after a year or so, can turn into a ____(9)______ form that ____(10)______ the wild virus.
