C
"Factors" could have been an appropriate choice, had the noun been in its singular form. Option A hence can be eliminated.

Usage of the word "might” would be too strong for the context. Option B can be eliminated as well.

Similarly, usage of the noun "impact" makes the sentence illogical while "hindrance" is opposite in meaning to the word required. Options D and E get eliminated too.

The word “force” fits the gap aptly as it is going well with the context.

Option C is hence the correct answer.

E
Usage of either "stuck" or "routed" makes the context absurd and hence options A and C can be eliminated.

Usage of either the verb "planted" or "instered" with 'technology' is illogical and this eliminates options B and D as well.

Option E “embedded” which means 'fixed firmly or deeply' is the most appropriate choice for the blank in the context given and it gets confirmed if you go on reading the first few words of the next sentence.

Option E is hence the correct answer.

C
The words "offices", "hierarchies" and "details" do not bring any particular meaning or logic to the sentence and hence options A, B and D get eliminated.

The noun "organisation" could have been picked if it had been in its plural form. This eliminates option E as well.

The word “processes” completes the sentence in a meaningful manner and thus is the most appropriate choice for the blank.

Option C is hence the correct answer.
» Explain it
B
The sentence tries to refer to the socio-economic concept explained with the help of ‘Pyramid’ that does not exist in reality.

Out of the words given, only the word “proverbial” which means ‘well-know’ fills in the blank aptly.

Option B is hence the correct answer.
» Explain it
A
In a general scenario, a technology is first invented, then, adapted and then it is enhanced. In the context of the passage, the most suitable word is “adaptation” which completes the sentence meaningfully. Option B hence gets eliminated.

Usage of either “monitoring” or “production” makes the context absurd and hence can be eliminated as well.

A ‘technology’ is ‘built’ and ‘goods’ are ‘produced’. Usage of “production” in the given context is absolutely illogical. Option E gets eliminated too.

Option A is hence the correct answer.
