1. The interpretation of this mystery, however, is so well known so as to need no _________.

  • A. Explanation
  • B. Expedition
  • C. Elation
  • D. Expedience
  • E. Elaboration
Answer

A and E

The missing word is referring to something which is not needed because the significance or interpretation of the mystery is very well known. Therefore, it is likely that the missing word is close to 'detailed description' in meaning. Out of all the given answer options, 'explanation' and 'elaboration' are the only words that mean the same as describing something in detail and therefore, A and E are the correct answers.

2. It safeguards the example, _________ it from contamination with history, and protects it from contact with the industrialized, urban world.

  • A. Innovates
  • B. Inoculates
  • C. Immunises
  • D. Imbibes
  • E. Intoxicates
Answer

B and C

Answer options, A and D are grossly incorrect as placing the words, 'innovates' and 'imbibes' in the blank will create a grammatical as well as a logical error. The word, 'intoxicates' is irrelevant with respect to the context in which the word 'contamination' is being used. The words, 'inoculates' and 'immunises' fit in well with the meaning being conveyed by the sentence and hence, B and C are the correct answers.

3. A distant train whistle is heard, and the sounds of construction in the clearing _________ with the cries of birds and the rustle of wind in the trees.

  • A. Whistle
  • B. Mingle
  • C. Vie
  • D. Clash
  • E. Compete
Answer

C and E

'Whistle' is clearly an incorrect answer option. 'Mingle' could have been the correct answer, but we have to look for two words that impart the same meaning to the sentence and so in the absence of a synonym for 'mingle' in the given list, B is incorrect. Out of the remaining answer option, the words, 'vie' and 'compete' are the closest to each other in meaning and therefore, C and E are the correct answers.
