Directions: A word given in bold is followed by I, II and III, each of which consists of two sentences. You need to identify the options where the given word can be used as a connector to combine the two statements into a single one while maintaining the meaning and coherence of the sentence.
1
Although
 
I. The hurricanes this fall are making it hard to determine just how good it has been. Job growth has been moderately good.
 
II. The country's productivity growth rate is high. The capital stock growth is slowing due to reining in production capacity and investment.
 
III. The party voters that Fernandes aims to court are in favor of protectionist policies for French companies. Many of its main figures are liberal in economic terms.
» Explain it
D
The use of Although indicates that the two fragments of sentences should be contradictory to each other. Putting although in each of the statements we see:

I.  Although job growth has been moderately good, the hurricanes this fall are making it hard to determine just how good- This is correct grammatically and contextually.

II. Although the country's productivity growth rate is high, its capital stock growth is slowing as it reins in production capacity and investment- This is correct grammatically and contextually.

III. Although many of its main figures are liberal in economic terms, the party voters that Fernandes aims to court are in favor of protectionist policies for French companies- This is correct grammatically and contextually.

All the statements are correct.

Hence, option D is correct.
2
Notwithstanding
 
I. The country’s external position remains precarious. There is a long list of requests for outstanding foreign currency payments for imports of over $700 million.
 
II. The resurgence of inflation in the economy is severely threatening the security of households. Real incomes have dramatically fallen in the last 12 months.
 
III. Increasing the GDP should be the nation’s prime strategic objective. There will be side effects this same growth might have on the present and future quality of life of its citizens.
» Explain it
B
Notwithstanding means in spite of/even though.  Putting notwithstanding in each of the statements we see:

I. Notwithstanding a long list of requests for outstanding foreign currency payments for imports of over $700 million, the country’s external position remains precarious- This is incorrect. Both the statements convey the same points whereas they need to be contradicting in nature in order to use notwithstanding.

II. Notwithstanding that real incomes have dramatically fallen in the last 12 months, the resurgence of inflation in the economy is severely threatening the security of households- Again, both the statements need to be contradicting each other whereas they supplement each other. Hence, this is incorrect.

III. Increasing its GDP should be the nation’s prime strategic objective, notwithstanding the side effects this same growth might have on the present and future quality of life of its citizens- This is correct grammatically and contextually.

Hence, option B is correct.
3
Conversely
 
I. Major trading powers treat China as a non-market economy. Major trading powers would insist on ascertaining the value of goods with reference to prices in a third country to ensure that domestic firms do not gain an unfair trade advantage.
 
II. India’s top 1 per cent now hold 58 per cent of the country’s total wealth according to an Oxfam study. Inequity does not augur well as it is as much a global concern as illicit wealth.
 
III. When the night skies are cloudy, the blanket of clouds prevents the terrestrial radiation from the earth's surface to escape into the atmosphere, which warms up the night. When day skies are cloudy, it prevents solar radiation from reaching the earth's surface, leading to lower maximum temperature.
» Explain it
A
Conversely means on the other hand. Putting conversely in each of the statements we see:

I. Major trading powers treat China as a non-market economy and conversely they would insist on ascertaining the value of goods with reference to prices in a third country to ensure that domestic firms did not gain an unfair trade advantage- This is incorrect as the correct connector would be thus/therefore.

II. India’s top 1 per cent now hold 58 per cent of the country’s total wealth according to an Oxfam study and conversely inequity does not augur well as it is as much a global concern as illicit wealth- This is incorrect as the statement does not make sense.

III. When the night skies are cloudy, the blanket of clouds prevents the terrestrial radiation from the earth's surface to escape into the atmosphere, which warms up the night while conversely, when day skies are cloudy, it prevents solar radiation from reaching the earth's surface, leading to lower maximum temperature- This is correct grammatically and contextually.

Hence, option A is correct.
4
Correspondingly
 
I. Bengaluru’s population has touched 1.2 crore. The number of vehicles on Bengaluru’s roads have risen to as much as 64 lakh.
 
II. Concerns have been raised regarding the cryptocurrency markets as there is substantially less investor protection than in our traditional securities markets. There are greater opportunities for fraud and manipulation.
 
III. The worker takes more money out of the business. The employer has less money to spend to expand the business.
» Explain it
D
I. With Bengaluru’s population touching 1.2 crore, the number of vehicles on its roads have correspondingly risen to as much as 64 lakh- This is correct grammatically and contextually.

II. Concerns have been raised regarding the cryptocurrency markets as there is substantially less investor protection than in our traditional securities markets, with correspondingly greater opportunities for fraud and manipulation- This is correct grammatically and contextually.

III. If the worker takes more money out of the business, the employer correspondingly has less money to spend to expand the business- This is correct grammatically and contextually.

Hence, option D is correct.
5
Albeit
 
I. There is far too much at stake for New Delhi to stand by if the new government in Nepal which is clearly pro-China, starts playing Beijing's game in an Indian sphere of influence. It could do so by citing national interest as a cover for ideological affinity.
 
II. The share of unbranded sales may witness a downtrend. This will happen even if slowly as a large percentage of aspirational consumers are no longer averse to the idea of opting for pricier and better quality product variants.
 
III. China planning refugee camps on Korean border is an unusual occurrence. It looks like a tacit admission by China regarding instability in North Korea being increasingly likely.
» Explain it
E

Albeit refers to although/even if-

I. There is far too much at stake for New Delhi to stand by if the new government in Nepal which is clearly pro-China, starts playing Beijing's game in an Indian sphere of influence, albeit citing national interest as a cover for ideological affinity- This is correct grammatically and contextually.


II. The share of unbranded sales may witness a downtrend, albeit slowly, as a large percentage of aspirational consumers are no longer averse to the idea of opting for pricier and better quality product variants-- This is correct grammatically and contextually.

III. China planning refugee camps on Korean border is an unusual, albeit tacit, admission by China that instability in North Korea is increasingly likely- This is correct grammatically and contextually.

Hence, option E is correct.
