1
Nine years is perhaps too short a time for deep wounds to heal, but it is enough time to begin to introspect. However, going by the polarised views around the anniversary of the end of Sri Lanka’s civil war, there are few signs of that. For the Tamils who gathered in Mullaitivu district in the Northern Province, it was a day to remember loved ones killed in those savage final days of the war that ended on May 18, 2009. _________________________.
» Explain it
D
The original passage talks about Sri Lanka’s civil war that ended in 2009. The second statement talks about ‘polarized views’ and hints at two different viewpoints. The third statement talks about one of the views and hence ideally, the blank should the other side of the coin.

Options A and C can be eliminated as they go off topic.

Option B talks about ‘two narratives’ but the second one has not yet been stated and is hence incorrect.

Option D is correct clearly as it conveys the opposing viewpoint.

Hence, option D is correct.
» Explain it
B
The original passage talks about spending more on the construction sector. The statement after the blank continues in terms of the positive tone and states a reason for spending more on this sector. Thus, we need a statement that justifies spending more on construction.

Option A is incorrect as the phrase in addition implies a reason has already been given before but this is not the case here.

Option C is incorrect as the ‘this’ being referred to here is not mentioned before.
Option D is incorrect as ‘these’ implies multiple and there are no such measures mentioned anywhere.

Option B is correct. It connects with the previous sentence due to use of the words ’this sector’  and also matches well with the following sentence.

Hence, option B is correct.
3
Surprisingly, the Survey is not too concerned about surplus financials savings flowing out from banks to the capital market. _________________________. A concern everywhere now is that as the market appears to be overvalued and is due for a correction. This could lead to significant losses for households that have moved to such riskier avenues to earn higher returns relative to deposit rates which are falling.
» Explain it
C
The statement before the blank talks about the Survey not being too concerned about a large number of people moving towards capital markets. Ideally, the next statement should provide a reason for the same. We look for something that is positive in tone.

Option A is incorrect as this goes against the information given in the passage about people moving towards capital markets (increasing investments).

Option B is incorrect as it talks about a completely different topic having no bearing to the current one.

Option D is incorrect as if people have been moving away from the banks, returns would not be linked to the banking system.

Option C is a perfect fit. It continues the previous statement by providing a reason for people moving towards capital markets.

Hence, option C is correct.
4
Demonetisation and GST have definitely added transparency to the tax system and resulted in more taxpayers. _________________________. Otherwise there is no explanation for lower GDP growth in FY17 and FY18 as monsoons have been good, inflation low, crude oil price benign, CAD low, fiscal balances under control, rupee stronger, foreign flows higher and interest rates lower.
» Explain it
C
The statement before the blank talks positively about Demonetisation and GST. However, the one after the blank is negative in tone and tries to justify the lower GDP numbers. We need to find a statement that ‘bridges’ the gap between the two perspectives.

Option A is incorrect as it talks about fiscal deficit but this does not provide a valid reason for low GDP numbers.

Option B is incorrect as it merely states some facts regarding GDP numbers  but does not provide a contradicting viewpoint.

Option D is incorrect as it is positive in nature and matches with the statement before the blank but not the one after it.

Option C is correct as this provides a different viewpoint and a possible reason for the low GDP numbers.

Hence, option C is correct.
» Explain it
A
The passage begins by stating that there can be different explanations for the same event and then connects this with the Economic Survey. The line after the blank talks about how different conclusions may be drawn from the same facts.

Option B is incorrect as it talks about the Survey being very positive in tone. But this tone does not match with the rest of the passage and can be eliminated.

Option C is incorrect as the main theme here is inflation which has not been followed in the next line.

Option D is incorrect as it does not match with the statement that follows the blank. The ‘it’ and the ‘report’ are vague and mismatched.

Option A fits in well. It states that the survey uses facts which are common knowledge. This matches well with the next statement and the overall theme of the passage.

Hence, option A is correct.
