Sol. Option A, It is contrary to the main argument discussed in the passage, which tries to refute the argument of the First Cause.
Option B, It does not go with the theme of the paragraph, as discussed above.
Option C, As the author believes that there is no validity in the argument of the First Cause, so the third choice is correct.
Option D, Misleading choice. Out of scope of the passage, as it does not talk about the qualities of God.
Sol. Option A, Gravitation is not the main focus of the argument; moreover, the para talks about Newton, and not Einstein.
Option B, Does not follow; why would Modern science explain a popular belief.
Option C, Does not make sense as the passage nowhere says that natural law was a part of the Newtonian system.
Option D, This option takes the argument forward, ‘that was……’ is the link that takes the case further by questioning the validity of the conventional wisdom. Hence, option D is the answer
Sol. The lines are simple and direct. You have to find something that concludes the idea. So a, d, and c are quite tempting, although quite general in inference.
Option A, One cannot deduce it from the argument.
Option B, concludes the idea mentioned in each line, hence, it is the answer.
Option C, Again, this option is too farfetched.
Option D, Once again, this option is too farfetched.
Sol. Now, this should be pretty logical for those who believe in love.
Option A, Hits the bulls eye, the only choice that logically completes the lines.
Hence, option A is the answer.
Option B, The choice is too creative although it rhymes well with the previous line.
Option C, ‘It takes two to tango’ is generally used with a negative sense, so out of question.
Option D, Is out of scope, do not be misled by the word ‘divine’.
Sol. Option A, B; The passage nowhere talks about creativity or innovative thinking, so options A and B are out.
Option C, Takes the negative tone too far, so we have to eliminate this choice.
Option D, is clearly the missing logical link, which is taken further by the last line of the passage. Mentioned in the last line ‘to resist environment is not easy and often risky’ supports this statement. Hence, it is the right answer.
Sol. Option A, The first choice is downright offensive, therefore not possible.
Option B, It includes both the elements ‘education’ and ‘integration’, hence, the right choice and is the answer.
Option C, Out of scope as the passage is about the ‘value of education’ and not spiritual evolution.
Option D, It is well said but out of place because the paragraph does not say that education is not necessary.
Sol. Option A, It provides extra information which is out of scope of the passage.
Option B, It does not go with the theme of the passage, which talks about the role of education in developing intelligence.
Option C, It fills in the missing link. It has been illustrated in the last two lines.
Option D, This does not go with the last line, which tries to define real intelligence.
Sol. Option A, It strays from the theme of the topic and hence, eliminated.
Option B, The previous line talks about the civil servants, so no connection between the two.
Option C, It justifies the you-cannot-change-it-overnight element in the previous line, hence, the answer.
Option D, It is totally unrelated to the topic.
Sol. Option A, The passage talks about big ideas motivating the individuals or nations, this option talks about negative motivation of the proletariat.
Option B, It is counter to the theme of the paragraph which talks about the sweeping influence of the big ideas.
Option C, This is contradictory to the main idea of the paragraph.
Option D, Gives an illustration of how big ideas catch the popular imagination and create a wave of history.
Sol. Option A, provides a solid example to support the main idea about fine-tuning the clemency jurisprudence.
Option B, It is an extension of the topic, but it deviate from the topic of mercy petitions or clemency jurisprudence.
Option C, Goes against the tone of the paragraph which is positive, ‘thoughtful exposition’ has been used
Option D, It provides secondary information but fails to logically complement the last sentence.
Sol. Option A, Goes with the tone of the paragraph which is laudatory.
Option B, It does not follow the last sentence which is positive.
Option C, It dilutes the tone of the paragraph which is positive.
Option D, ‘the vaccination programme’ does not have its antecedent in the previous line.
Sol. Option A, This could have been a possible choice, but it does not flow from the last sentence.
Option B, This option is quite tempting, but misses on the ‘India’ element interspersed throughout the paragraph.
Option C, Last sentence in option C does not refer to any ‘problems’ as mentioned in this statement.
Option D, It gels both the elements mentioned in the given lines, global brands and the great Indian dream.
Sol. Option A, It is not possible as the previous line talks about Forbes’ review of the movie.
Option B, The paragraph nowhere talks about Scorsese, so this option is eliminated.
Option C, The last line does not have Belfort as the main subject, so ‘he’ cannot be used for lack of clear antecedent.
Option D, The author tries to argue that the greed of common man to make a fortune is not much different from a fraudster like Belfort who manipulates the stock market. Option D is in line with the theme of the paragraph. Hence, option D is the answer.
Sol. Option A, It does not go with the negative tone of the last line, ‘attacks the lifestyle.’
Option B, Again, this option changes the tone of the passage which is negative.
Option C, This an extraneous piece of information which falls outside the scope of the discussion.
Option D, As it explains how it ‘attacks the middle class’ and uses the analogy of wolves and sheep to support the case.
Sol. Let us eliminate the options:
Option B talks about how does ‘voting’ come into picture. Passage does not mention that or is not related to that. Hence, option (B) is not the answer.
Option C looks tempting but does not flow from the passage.
Option D sounds like a U-turn and hence, cannot be the answer.
Option A is the only option left out. Hence it is the answer.
