Fill in the Blanks for IBPS PO | Fill in the Blanks Exercise No 32 | 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
_____________ the trade war, geopolitical tensions in West Asia, uncertainty around Brexit and global slowdown are other _____________ driving the rally in gold price.
» Explain it
A
The sentence wants to convey that “in addition to” the trade war, geopolitical tensions, Brexit and global slowdown are also responsible for the increase in gold price. In the context of the sentence, the only words that lead to a meaningful sentence are the combination of "besides" and "factors". All other options are incorrect either contextually or grammatically. “Beside” is incorrect for the first blank as it means ‘next to or at the side of’ whereas “besides” means ‘apart from or in addition to.

Option A is hence the correct answer.
 
2
With good monsoon and a _____________ government, the situation may improve, but growth rate expectations are lower now than what we _____________ during the start of the year
» Explain it
B
The first blank must be positive since “the situation may improve”. In the context of the sentence, the words which are suitable for the first blank are “steady”, “stable” and “strong”. Hence options C and E are eliminated.

Despite the aforementioned positive circumstances, the growth rate expectations are lower than what had been ‘visualized’ at the beginning of the year. The only word that makes the sentence meaningfully correct is “envisaged” which means ‘contemplate or conceive of as a possibility or a desirable future event’. The words “formed" and “seen” are irrelevant to the context of this sentence. This eliminates options A and D as well.

Option B is hence the correct answer.
 
3
Considering the rapid penetration of mobile phones and the rise in use of social media in India, the _____________ of fake news is no longer a problem limited to the online world, especially because it has political, social and economic _____________ on the ground.
» Explain it
B
The first blank refers to the spreading of fake news which has become easier thanks to the wide reach of mobile phones. In the context of the sentence, the words which are suitable for the first blank are “dissemination”, “propagation” and “distribution”. Hence options A and C are eliminated.

Out of the remaining choices, the only word that fits in the second blank and makes the sentence meaningfully correct is “ramifications” which means ‘complex or unwelcome consequence of an action or event’. The words “transaction" and “transfusion” are irrelevant to the context of this sentence. This eliminates options D and E as well.

Option B is hence the correct answer.
 
4
Short-term credit from NBFCs, frequently _____________ over, stands in for missing long-term capital and a disruption in the cycle results in a crisis for both the financing companies and the builders _____________ on them for capital.
» Explain it
C
The sentence means to convey that short term loans from NBFCs whose due dates are frequently extended act as replacement for missing long term capital and a break in this cycle would be a disaster for both the financing companies as well as the builders who are dependent on them for capital.

In the context of the sentence, the only combination of words that lead to a meaningful sentence is "rolled" and "reliant". All other options are incorrect either contextually or grammatically. Therefore, options A, B, D and E are eliminated.

To “roll over” a loan means to extend the loan's due date by paying an additional fee. Loan roll over is most common with short-term payday and title loans.

Option C is hence the correct answer.
 
5
A functional bond market is vital for transparent _____________ length finance, to better _____________ resources for long-gestation infrastructure projects.
» Explain it
A
In the context of the sentence, the only combination of words that lead to a meaningful sentence is "arm’s" and "allocate". All other options are incorrect either contextually or grammatically.

The idiom “arm’s length transaction” refers to a transaction in which the buyers and sellers of a product act independently and have no relationship to each other. The concept of an arm's length transaction is to ensure that both parties in the deal are acting in their own self-interest and are not subject to any pressure or duress from the other party.

The given sentence wants to convey that such type of financing is needed for the better allocation of resources in case of long term projects.

Option A is hence the correct answer.
