Direction: Given below are six statements A, B, C, D, E and F, which when arranged in the correct order, form a coherent and meaningful paragraph. The sentence marked D is fixed and would fit in the fourth position. Rearrange the other statements in a proper sequence to form a meaningful paragraph, then answer the questions that follow.

A. Acts of grand corruption usually involve a set of illegal actions – like the bribery of public officials, substitution of materials or resources, and the complicity of a group of actors – that may lead to fatal consequences.

B. For a number of years, the anti-corruption community has discussed the possibility of prosecuting cases of grand corruption. This could have a positive impact on raising awareness and reform and may fill a vacuum if a state is unable or unwilling to prosecute certain cases of grand corruption.

C. There is a need to protect the universality of human rights, and to do so, we must stop regarding corruption as something cultural or contextual. The ambiguity of the concept makes it more difficult to include anti-corruption among human rights issues.

D. Because of this, dozens of children were given false cancer treatments in Veracruz. Children were given water instead of chemotherapy treatments. Funding was also cut from security and police forces; 2,500 homicides were registered during Duarte’s administration.

EXPLANATION: 

1.Note that in the given question we are required to find a segment which when put in the blank will render the first part of the sentence incorrect. So we can either look for the segment which will make a contextual error or one which causes a grammatical error in the asked part. So let's first read the sentence and the options thoroughly.

The first statement mentions that protests were started after the Sterlite announcement was made. But the first option mentions the word “before” to indicate the time of the initiation of the protests, which renders the first part of the sentence contextually incorrect. All the other options fit appropriately in the blank and help in rendering a logical meaning to the whole sentence. Thus, option A is the correct answer.

2.Note that in the given question we are required to find a segment which when put in the blank will render the second part of the sentence incorrect. So we can either look for the segment which will make a contextual error or one which causes a grammatical error in the asked part. So let's first read the sentence and the options thoroughly. 

"Fiduciaries" means "trustees". The sentence implies that a particular law will apply to the trustees outside India only if they are of two kinds- one of them being those who are doing business with India. We need to find out the other group. Now, when it is being said in part 2 that a law would be applied to someone, we can infer that it would be valid only when someone does something that harms the nation in some way. Options A, C and D mention such circumstances under which the laws would be applied. Thus, all these options make the sentence as well as part 2 correct. Only option B mentions a circumstance where the laws of the country are preserved, hence, there would be no application of the law. So option B is the correct answer.

3.Note that in the given question we are required to find a segment which when put in the blank will render the first part of the sentence incorrect. So we can either look for the segment which will make a contextual error or one which causes a grammatical error in the asked part. So let's first read the sentence and the options thoroughly. 

Here we can have a grammatical error. Since the first part is in the simple future tense, the rest of the sentence should be structurally similar and thus the same tense should be used throughout. All the options except A use the simple future tense (option D uses the passive form of the simple future tense), thus rendering the whole sentence and part A correct. However, if option A is put in the blank, the first part of the sentence will become incorrect.

4.Note that in the given question we are required to find a segment which when put in the blank will render the first part of the sentence incorrect. So we can either look for the segment which will make a contextual error or one which causes a grammatical error in the asked part. So let's first read the sentence and the options thoroughly. 

If the segments mentioned in all the options are put in the blank, the sentence would be grammatically and contextually correct. The simple present tense, the present perfect tense as well as the present perfect continuous tense would fit with the phrase "recently revealed" as the equipment could be supplied in the present time or since some time in the past. Also, there may be certainty as well as uncertainty about the supply. Thus, option E is the correct answer.

5.Note that in the given question we are required to find a segment which when put in the blank will render the first part of the sentence incorrect. So we can either look for the segment which will make a contextual error or one which causes a grammatical error in the asked part. So let's first read the sentence and the options thoroughly.

Note that "food economy", as mentioned in the first part of the sentence, is a singular subject, which would take a singular verb in part 2. All the options except C use a singular verb. So they make part 1 correct. "Play" is a plural verb, which renders part 1 incorrect as the subject must change to the plural accordingly- "The informal food economies, which fall outside official regulation". Thus, option C is the correct answer.

6.The given statement which needs to be placed in the passage talks about development of clean alternatives to coal, oil and gas. Thus, it should be placed after the second statement of the passage which talks about the requirement for the decarbonisation of the economy with alternatives to alternatives for coal and cars that run on diesel. Thus, option B is the correct answer.

7.The first and the second statement are in logical order as the first talks about the invention of “nationalism” in Europe and the second talks about the model of nationalism. The third sentence is also in the proper order as at it lays down the first criteria to be a “British”. Here the usage of “so” indicates that it is the first sentence in the sequence of the given sentence and the last one which mentions “finally”. Hence, the given sentence should replace (3) to make the sentence complete and coherent.

8.The passage is on corruption, so either C or E could logically be the opening lines of the passage. The other options start with such conjunctions and connectors, which indicate that they are the continuation of other statements. Between C and E, the latter should be the first sentence as it lays down the argument that corruption affects human rights and C takes the idea forward towards a resolution. So, E and C for the first and the second sentence respectively. Having found the first and the second sentence, and having the fourth sentence fixed, we need to look for the third sentence. D mentions the phrase, “Because of this dozens of children were given false cancer treatments”; so we need to find the specific reason. F carries this reason for the consequence mentioned in D. Thus, F is the third sentence. Now we are left with only A and B, and B follows A as it concludes the passage by stating how the anti-corruption community helped in raising awareness. So, the correct sequence would be ECFDAB.

9.The passage is on corruption, so either C or E could logically be the opening lines of the passage. The other options start with such conjunctions and connectors, which indicate that they are the continuation of other statements. Between C and E, the latter should be the first sentence as it lays down the argument that corruption affects human rights and C takes the idea forward towards a resolution. So, E and C for the first and the second sentence respectively. Having found the first and the second sentence, and having the fourth sentence fixed, we need to look for the third sentence. D mentions the phrase, “Because of this dozens of children were given false cancer treatments”; so we need to find the specific reason. F carries this reason for the consequence mentioned in D. Thus, F is the third sentence. Now we are left with only A and B, and B follows A as it concludes the passage by stating how the anti-corruption community helped in raising awareness. So, the correct sequence would be ECFDAB.

Thus, out of the given options, Option E is the correct answer.

10.The passage is on corruption, so either C or E could logically be the opening lines of the passage. The other options start with such conjunctions and connectors, which indicate that they are the continuation of other statements. Between C and E, the latter should be the first sentence as it lays down the argument that corruption affects human rights and C takes the idea forward towards a resolution. So, E and C for the first and the second sentence respectively. Having found the first and the second sentence, and having the fourth sentence fixed, we need to look for the third sentence. D mentions the phrase, “Because of this dozens of children were given false cancer treatments”; so we need to find the specific reason. F carries this reason for the consequence mentioned in D. Thus, F is the third sentence. Now we are left with only A and B, and B follows A as it concludes the passage by stating how the anti-corruption community helped in raising awareness. So, the correct sequence would be ECFDAB.

11.‘Underdevelopment’ and ‘accelerated progress’ are opposing factors and when opposing factors interact a ‘clash’ or ‘crossfire’ occurs. Thus, both i and ii can be used to fill the first blank. The second blank should have the alternative iii in it as ‘new urban reality’ is being formed because of the interactions of various factors. Thus, option D can be negated. ‘Transitions’ mean a period of change. ‘Translations’ mean the process of changing text from one language to another. Hence, keeping in context to the sentence, alternative v is a better fit answer for the third blank. Only option C has alternative v as its choices along with iii and i. This makes option C the correct answer.

12.The given passage is about a project for urban development in China. Thus, the first blank should have the word ‘urbanization’ in it as it refers to the process of making an area more urban. So, options B and C can be negated as they don’t have alternative ii. The second blank is preceded by the word ‘strategy’ which refers to a plan of action designed to achieve a long-term or overall aim. Thus, this plan needs to made. ‘Speculated’ means to form a theory without substantial evidence. ‘Formulated’ means to create or prepare methodically. ‘Forecasted’ means to predict or estimate. Thus, ‘formulated’ is the correct word for the given second blank as it would indicate that the said ’strategy’ is being created or prepared. Since alternatives ii and iv have to be used, it remains to be seen if alternative vi can fit the third blank. The mentioned ‘strategy’ as per the passage is not only required for sustainable cities but also for a developed urban society. ‘Necessity’ means the state or fact of being required and is the correct word for the given blank. This makes option d the correct answer.

13.The given passage is about a certain paradigm. The attention it receives should be growing to make it an important factor to garner worldwide attention at a growing pace. Thus, the first blank should have ‘increased’ in it with reference to the context. This makes options A and D viable. The first sentence states that the paradigm helps to achieve ‘sustainable development’. The second blank should thus have ‘contributes’ in it as it means help to cause something. Thus, alternative ii should go in the second blank. ‘Dwindled’ means to decrease and cannot be used in any of the blanks making option d null. ‘Verified’ means to make sure or demonstrate that (something) is true, accurate, or justified and is the correct fit for the third blank. Thus, option a is the correct answer.

14.Alternatives i, ii and vi are synonyms and can be used to fill the first blank. Alternatives iii, iv and v are synonyms and can be used to fill the second blank. But no word in the given alternatives can be utilized to fill the third blank as it needs a name of a subject to maintain continuity. Thus, option E is the correct answer.
