Question 1
The law prohibits a person from felling a sandal wood tree, even if it grows on one’s own land without prior permission from the government. As poor people cannot deal with the government this legal provision leads to a rip-roaring business for ________,who care neither for the ________ nor for the trees.
A
middlemen..rich
B
the government…poor
C
touts…rich
D
touts.. poor
Question 1 Explanation: 
We need two negative words in this case. Touts means ‘One who sells advice about gambling or speculation (especially at the racetrack)/ Someone who buys something and resells it at a price far above the initial cost’. Tout is a negative word representing people who are involved in illegal activities and only care about money. The second word in this case is poor. Obviously, touts would not care for the poor.
Question 2
It will take sometime for many South Koreans to ________ the conflicting image of North Korea, let alone to ________ what to make of their northern cousins
A
reconcile…decide
B
understand…clarify
C
make out… decide
D
reconcile… understand
Question 2 Explanation: 
In the givens sentence, the author wishes to highlight how the South Koreans cannot quite to figure out the conflicting image portrayed by North Korea. Since the image is conflicting, the word we use here is reconcile (which means come to terms with something) rather than understand. The second word obviously needs to be decide, which fits in with the catch phrase ‘what to make’.
Question 3
In these bleak and depressing times of ________ prices, non-performing governments and ________ crime rates, Sourav Ganguly has given us Indians a lot to cheer about.
A
escalating…increasing
B
spiralling…booming
C
spiraling… soaring
D
ascending….debilitating
Question 3 Explanation: 
In the given case, we need two words which show how the prices and crime rates are increasing. The two words which represent uncontrollable increase in this case are spiraling and soaring. We select these two words as they represent two meanings which are not there in the other words: uncontrollable and great increase.
Question 4
The manners and  ________ of the nouveau riche is a recurrent ________ in the literature.
A
style… motif
B
morals…story
C
wealth..theme
D
morals…theme
Question 4 Explanation: 
Nouveauriche means ‘Characteristic of someone who has risen economically or socially but lacks the social skills appropriate for this new position’. What would be interesting with regards to these individuals? Their morals. And secondly, this would become a theme in literature, as themes repeat themselves in literature and not stories.
Question 5
But ________ are now regularly written, not just for tools but well-established practices, organizations and institutions not all which seem to be ________ away.
A
reports, withering
B
stories, trading
C
books, dying
D
obituaries, fading
Question 5 Explanation: 
In this case, the second blank exhibits a negative sentiment and all the options (other than trading) point to this. The use of ‘but’ and ‘not all’ in the sentence helps us identify that we require a pair of opposite sentiments. This is accomplished by obituaries and fading. These words give us the pair of opposite sentiments we require.
