Directions: The following question has two blanks, each blank indicating that something has been omitted. Choose the set of words for each blank that best fits in the context of the sentence.
1
The public sector has been called the private sector of politicians, used for creating patronage _____________ and _____________ .
» Explain it
A
In the context of the sentence, the only appropriate combination of words is that of "networks" and "kickbacks". All other options are either grammatically or contextually incorrect. The sentence says that politicians gain a lot of private favours by sponsoring the public sector through set-ups and bribes.

Option A is hence the correct answer.
 
2
If people fail to realize the _____________ of the water crisis India is facing and fail to be _____________ into action then there are bound to be many more Chennais.
» Explain it
B
“Water crisis” after the first blank indicates that the blank refers to the level of water crisis. In the context of the sentence, the words which are suitable for the first blank are “magnitude”, “intensity” and “acuteness”. Hence options C and E are eliminated.

The second blank tries to convey that if people fail to be inspired to take action then there would be more regions with severe water crisis. The only word that makes the sentence meaningfully correct is “galvanized” which means ‘shock or excite someone into taking action’. The words “recommended" and “ploughed” are irrelevant to the context of this sentence. This eliminates options A and D as well.

Option B is hence the correct answer.

 
3
The internal and concurrent audit system of banks is intended to red _____________ risks in real time, but has failed and must be _____________ up.
» Explain it
B
In the context of the sentence, the word that is most suitable for the first blank is “flag” and that for the second blank is “shored”. All the other options are grammatically and contextually incorrect.

A red flag (Idiom)

Meaning: A sign or signal indicating potential, incipient, or imminent danger or trouble.

E.g.: There are a couple of red flags you need to look out for to make sure your company stays profitable.

Shored up (Phrasal verb)

Meaning: to make something stronger by supporting it

E.g.: The plan will enable his company to shore up its financial position.

Option B is hence the correct answer.
 
4
Further, to augment bond market liquidity, corporates need to be encouraged to _____________ exiting bonds under the same International Securities Identification Number, to duly shore up floating _____________ .
» Explain it
C
The words “exiting bonds” after the first blank indicate that the blank is a word that conveys that these bonds need to re-enter the market. In the context of the sentence, the words which are suitable for the first blank are “redistribute”, “reissue” and “recirculate”. Hence options B and E are eliminated.

The second blank has to have a meaning similar to ‘bonds’ as the reissue of bonds would help to support it. The only word that makes the sentence meaningfully correct is “stocks” which means ‘shares which entitles the holder to a fixed dividend, whose payment takes priority over that of ordinary share dividends’. The words “stakes" and “steaks” are irrelevant to the context of this sentence. This eliminates options A and D as well.

Option C is hence the correct answer.
 
5
Population growth tapers off with _____________ literacy, access to contraception, and social and economic _____________ .
» Explain it
A
The statement wants to convey that population growth will decrease if people become more aware and educated. In the context of the sentence, "increased" or "improved" can fit the first blank and this eliminates options B, D and E. Further, as population growth will also decrease if social and economic conditions are improved, "progress" is the most appropriate choice for the second blank. Thus, option C gets eliminated as well.

Option A is hence the correct answer.
