Although annual inflation rate has hovered on the lower side of 6%, ____________________ .
 
I. it has steadiliy been trending upwards since 2015.
II. the Central Bank considers those readings to be consistent with its goal of 5-7%.
III.growth forecast has been reduced to 6% from 6.3%.
» Explain it
C
The statement states that the annual inflation rate has been low. It starts with 'although' which implies the next statement should be in contradiction with the one given.
 
Statement I: Although annual inflation rate has hovered on the lower side of 6%, it has steadiliy been trending upwards since 2015.
 
The first statement says inflation has been rising since 2015. This means that although the annual inflation is lower this year yet, as compared to the years since 2015, it has risen. This makes sense and is correct.
 
Statement II: Although annual inflation rate has hovered on the lower side of 6%, the Central Bank considers those readings to be consistent with its goal of 5-7%.
 
Statement II says the Central Bank considers those readings to be consistent with its goal of 5-7%.This also looks consistent with the context.
 
Statement III: Although annual inflation rate has hovered on the lower side of 6%, growth forecast has been reduced to 6% from 6.3%.
 
The last statement, however, does not match with the original statement. When inflation is low, growth slows down. So both the statements are in agreement with each other rather than contradiction.
 
Hence, option C is correct.
 
Statement II: Although annual inflation rate has hovered on the lower side of 6%, the Central Bank considers those readings to be consistent with its goal of 5-7%.
 
Statement II says the Central Bank considers those readings to be consistent with its goal of 5-7%.This also looks consistent with the context.
 
Statement III: Although annual inflation rate has hovered on the lower side of 6%, growth forecast has been reduced to 6% from 6.3%.
 
The last statement, however, does not match with the original statement. When inflation is low, growth slows down. So both the statements are in agreement with each other rather than contradiction.
 
Hence, option C is correct.

I. last year China led the world in ?nancial-technology investments and is closing on America, the global pacesetter, in other sectors.
II. this allows agile newcomers with business models that put the customer ?rst, to jump ahead of incumbents more easily in China than their counterparts in developed markets, the quality is still shoddy.
III. around $77bn of venture-capital (VC) investment poured into Chinese ?rms from 2014 to 2016, up from $12bn between 2011 and 2013.
» Explain it
C
The original statement ends with while which gives us a clue that the last fragment should be a contradiction.
 
Statement I: A few years ago, Chinese innovation meant copycats and counterfeits while last year China led the world in ?nancial-technology investments and is closing on America, the global pacesetter, in other sectors. 
 
This makes sense as it depicts China no longer indulges only in copycatting else there would not be so much investment in technology.
 
Statement II: A few years ago, Chinese innovation meant copycats and counterfeits while this allows agile newcomers with business models that put the customer ?rst, to jump ahead of incumbents more easily in China than their counterparts in developed markets, the quality is still shoddy. 
 
The statement does not have any meaning and is grammatically incorrect.
 
Statement III: A few years ago, Chinese innovation meant copycats and counterfeits while around $77bn of venture-capital (VC) investment poured into Chinese ?rms from 2014 to 2016, up from $12bn between 2011 and 2013.
 
The statement is correct. It shows China transformed from being a hub for counterfeiting to a hub for VC investments.
 
Hence, option C is correct.

I. mitigate, there prevails some information assymetry which makes some amount of climate change unavoidable.
II. understand him, we will fully grasp the myriad ways in which he has made the sport better.
III. care for her, it will not be in vain.
» Explain it
A
No matter what conveys that whatever action one may take with respect to something, the result would be inadequate/ there would be some issue.
 
Statement I:  No matter how much we mitigate, some amount of climate change is unavoidable. 

This is correct.
 
Statement II: No matter how much we understand him, we will fully grasp the myriad ways in which he has made the sport better. 

This is incorrect as both statements are in agreement with each other. 
 
Statement III: No matter how much we care for her, it will not be in vain.

Again, these statments are not in contradiction and hence incorrect.
 
Hence, option A is correct.

I. Although rainfall over the entire country falls under the normal category,

» Explain it

Statement I:  Although rainfall over the entire country falls under the normal category, the monsoon never recovered from the stuttered start which saw progress stall for over 10 days off the western coast. 

This is correct contextually and grammatically.
 
Statements II: Just as the distribution of rain has been in sync with IMD scientists' forecast, the monsoon never recovered from the stuttered start which saw progress stall for over 10 days off the western coast.

This has no meaning.

This has no meaning.
 
Only statement I is correct.

Hence, option B is the answer.
