IBPS PO Fill in the Blanks Questions with Answers PDF | Download Fill in the Blanks PDF at Smartkeeda

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
Given the history and the demands of domestic politics, particularly in Pakistan, the two countries are unlikely to present a _____________ of neighbourly _____________ .
» Explain it
C
In the context of the sentence, the only appropriate combination of words is that of "picture" and "cooperation". This makes the sentence meaningfully correct. All other options are either grammatically or contextually incorrect. Therefore, options A, B, D and E are eliminated. The sentence means that there is very little possibility that the two countries would be able to have friendly relations because of their history and the demands of domestic politics.

Option C is hence the correct answer.
 
2
In mature economies, central banks accept corporate bonds as _____________ for their liquidity management operations, so as to purposefully _____________ the bond market.
» Explain it
B
The sentence conveys that in mature countries bonds are accepted as ‘guarantee’ for their liquidity management operations. In the context of the sentence, the words which are suitable for the first blank are “security”, “collateral” and “insurance”. Hence options C and E are eliminated.

The word “purposefully” before the second blank indicates that the central banks have done something with a positive effect. The only word that makes the sentence meaningfully correct is “develop’. The word “undermine" has the opposite meaning and “accentuate” is irrelevant to the context of this sentence. This eliminates options A and D as well.

Option B is hence the correct answer.
 
3
Local bodies _____________ under rules to ensure segregation, collection and transfer of waste to registered recyclers have _____________ failed to fulfill their responsibilities.
» Explain it
B
The words “under rules” give us the clue to the first blank. It shows that the local bodies were required by rules to segregate, collect and transfer waste. In the context of the sentence, the word that is suitable for the first blank is “authorized” or “mandated” or “delegated”. Hence options C and E are eliminated.

The clue to the second blank lies in the word “failed” after it indicating that the word must express the scale of failure. The only word that aptly conveys this meaning is “spectacularly” expressing that the failure was of a huge scale. The adjectives "enormous" or “great” would have been considered if they were in their adverb form. This eliminates options A and D as well.

Option B is hence the correct answer.
 
4
They said that trade ministers of both countries would meet at an early date and sort out contentious issues relating to market access, trade _____________ and trade _____________ .
» Explain it
C
According to the sentence, the issues that are to be sorted are “contentious” which means ‘causing or likely to cause an argument; controversial’. Both the blanks must have words with negative tones. In the context of the sentence, the only combination of words that lead to a meaningful sentence is "barriers" and "imbalance". All other options are incorrect either contextually or grammatically.

Option C is hence the correct answer.
 
5
Millions of _____________ will keep moving to towns from the hinterland to seek better _____________ .
» Explain it
A
In the context of the sentence, the possible word that can fit the first blank is "migrants" or "immigrants" or “emigrants” but each of the three words has very specific meanings that are distinct from one another. “Emigrant” refers to a person who leaves one's country to live in another. “Immigrant” is a person who comes into another country to live permanently. “Migrant” is a person who moves from one region to another. In fact, ‘migrate’ is the root word of ‘emigrate’ and ‘immigrate’. However, the sentence refers to the movement from rural areas to urban areas in search of a better livelihood, which further confirms the combination of “migrants” and “opportunities” to be the correct choice.

Option A is hence the correct answer.
