GRE Practice: Reading Comprehension Select In Passage GRE Practice Test 3

Powered by GreGuide Version 2.2.1 Copyrights 2007,

Question 1:

A blanket ban on defection will weaken rather than strengthen democracy, in whose name it is being sought to be imposed. Granted: political defection is increasingly less an act of ideological defiance than one of pure opportunism; granted also that it is illogical to allow a third of the party to split but not a lesser number. Yet, for all its flaws, the current law recognizes and respects one fundamental principle: The right to dissent. Democracy is not about showing the door to one who dares to disagree. Democracy is about granting him the right to dissent from within the fold. In a household context, it would be akin to a father throwing out his rebellious daughter. How would a democratic father deal with this situation? He would allow the daughter to register her protest, knowing very well that not to do so would stifle the youngster's intellectual growth and turn her into a malcontent.

Which sentence brings out the positive aspect of the issue raised?

Correct Answer: E (Yet, for ........ right to dissent.)


The passage brings to light the various implications of defection in a democratic country. With the various negative aspects that defection brings in a democratic government, the passage also brings to notice a positive aspect that of giving importance to the right to dissent in democracy. The correct answer therefore is option (e),that refers to the sentence that carries it.

Question 2:

After submitting his resignation, Albert came out and took the long narrow road leading to the railway station which was one of the busiest roads in the city. Sad and depressed and worried about looking for a new job, Albert looked around for a cigarette shop. He walked up to the end of the road but found no tobacconist. It was odd that such a busy thoroughfare with thousands of people passing through did not even have a single cigarette shop. He suddenly felt that it was no longer necessary for him to hunt for a job. He decided to open a tobacco shop himself. It was bound to be profitable, he felt.

Which sentence tells about Albert's inspiration?

Correct Answer: D (It was odd ................ cigarette shop.)


The passage narrates an incident wherein a rejected young man is looking for a future prospect and finds one when he lands in a busy street that has no tobacco shop. This thought was the inspiring thought that he carried and the option containing a reference to it, option (d), is the correct answer.

Question 3:

We have inherited the tradition of secrecy about the budget from Britain where also the system has been strongly attacked by eminent economists and political scientists including Peter Jay. Sir Richard Clarke, who was the originating genius of nearly every important development in the British budgeting techniques during the last two decades, has spoken out about the abuse of budget secrecy: "The problems of long-term tax policy should surely be debated openly with the facts on the table. In my opinion, all governments should have just the same duty to publish their expenditure policy. Indeed, this obligation to publish taxation policy is really essential for the control of public expenditure in order to get realistic taxation implications." Realizing that democracy flourishes best on the principles of open government, more and more democracies are having an open public debate on budget proposals before introducing the appropriate Bill in the legislature.

Which sentence talks about the coming into affect of policies to handle the issue discussed here?

Correct Answer: A (Realizing that .......... in the legislature.)


After discussing the origins and type of reactions that have been received for the traditional method of maintaining secrecy about budget, it is in the last sentence that the author talks about the steps and policies that are being adopted by various countries to handle the issue. The correct answer thus is option (a).

Question 4:

The development of nationalism in the Third World countries, as is well known, followed a very different trajectory from that in the advanced capitalist countries. In the latter it was a part of the process of the emergence of the bourgeois order in opposition to feudalism, while in the former it was a part of the anti-colonial struggle. The impact of colonialism, though it differed across countries, had on the whole been in the direction of transcending localism and unifying supra-local economic structures through the introduction of market relations. The struggle against colonialism, consequently, took the form of a national struggle in each instance in which people belonging to different tribes or linguistic communities participated. And the colonial powers in each instance attempted to break this emerging national unity by splitting people.

Which sentence brings out the comparison?

Correct Answer: B (In the latter......... anti-colonial struggle.)


The passage talks about the rise of nationalism in the developed and developing countries and compares the route taken by it in both of them. The comparison as a whole is carried by the second sentence where the factors that led to their development have been contrasted. The correct answer therefore is option (b).
