Direction:  Given below is a passage with eight blanks against each of which three words are suggested to fill in the blanks. You are required to read the passage and fill the blanks with the most appropriate word/words for each of the blanks.
 
As the general elections loom, different political forces are making ___ A ___ attempts to politically position or reposition themselves in order to forge a winning combination. It is also interesting that this positioning and repositioning around the ___ B ___ of a common good is mutually conflicting. The parties in opposition, for example, seem to be suggesting that they are ___ C ___ to positioning themselves with each other, and around the universal perspective that is inclusive of values like democracy, secularism, and freedom from fear. The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), on the other side of the spectrum, are ___ D ___ to convince the public that Hindutva is the only universal common good. However, such attempts by the Sangh Parivar chief to calculatingly flesh out an “all-inclusive” position is ___ E ___ more in self-confidence and, therefore, devoid of egalitarian conviction. His attempts both at outreach through a lecture series and at ___ F ___ Narendra Modi–Amit Shah’s pet slogan of a “Congress-mukt Bharat” (Congress-free India) could be seen as a part of this repositioning. Moreover, the ___ G ___ posturing of the RSS can also be seen as resulting from the recognition of widespread public discontent against the policies of the current government. Seeking an extended meaning in Hindutva is fundamentally ___ H ___ by the need to maintain its control over levers of formal political power. The posturing that the RSS is “not interested” in formal political power, therefore, is necessarily a defensive ploy.

D
According to the given context, the political parties are trying to steal the thunder regarding religion in the country keeping in mind the upcoming general elections in the country. That is why there are a lot of permutations and combinations going on in the political circles regarding the requirement of utilization of religion for political purposes.

Among the given options, concrete is not correct since we are not only talking about whole-hearted attempts but we are talking about calculated efforts on the part of the political parties of the country. Tender implies soft and can be eliminated as the correct word in this context whereas calculated perfectly explains the meaning of the given context.

This makes option D the correct choice among the given options.
» Explain it
A
According to the given context, it is implied that the political parties are trying to utilize the idea of common good in order to use the idea of religion in the country. However, this idea has been depicted as mutually conflicting by the author in the passage. Actually, we are talking about the notion or idea of common good that all the political parties are trying to portray in the country.

Now coming to the options, ground cannot be used here since we are talking about some reason for a result but it is about an idea that the political parties have floated in the country whereas logic is also not correct since it cannot be used to denote that all the political parties are now committed to an idea of common good. Only notion can be used in the given context to imply that there is an idea of common good circulating in the political sphere of the country.

This makes option A the correct choice among the given options.

C.

I. Committed
II. Unified
III. Yearned
» Explain it
D
The context is about the stance of the opposition political parties in the country regarding the utilization of Hinduism and religion in the upcoming general elections. The opposition parties want to come together with the objective of upholding secularism, democracy and freedom from fear. It is implied that the opposition is actually committed to these ideas.

Among the given words, committed fits perfectly in the given blank whereas the other two words unified and yearned are completely out of context here since the first implies coming together and the second one is used to imply desired. These two words can be eliminated.

This makes option D the correct choice among the given options.
» Explain it
A
In order to understand the context, the preceding and succeeding sentences must be considered. Here, the context implies that the BJP and the RSS are trying to sell the idea among the citizens of the country that they are for Hindutva which is the only way to achieve universal common good.

Now, coming to the given words, we have to find words that can imply that the RSS and BJP are trying to convince the public. Trying can be used to fill in the blank. The second word is attempting and it also implies trying to achieve something and it is also perfect fit for the given blank. The third word can also be considered for the blank since striving refers to working hard for something.

This makes option A the correct choice among the given options.
» Explain it
C
According to the given context, the RSS is trying to show that they are following an all-inclusive approach and everybody will be included in their idea of development, irrespective of their religion. This idea is not based on conviction but it is only the confidence of the RSS-BJP combine that is trying to give weightage to this idea.

Coming to the given words, couched can definitely be used since it means the idea of the RSS is based mainly on self-confidence and it is the intended meaning in this context. Regarding the other two words, they are out of context here and should be eliminated.

This makes option C the correct choice among the given options.
