1. It is evident that this point of view is given ________ by the prevalence of multinucleate cells.

  • A. Citation
  • B. Credibility
  • C. Casualty
  • D. Causality
  • E. Credence
Answer

B and E

On reading the sentence carefully, it seems likely that the missing word could mean 'trust'. Moreover, out of all the given answer options, 'credibility' and 'credence' are the only words that mean the same and are close to 'trust' or 'acceptance' in meaning. Therefore, B and E are the correct answers.

2. He cannot be facing an easy future as the country's next leader and there is nothing to show yet that he will be drawing on secret reserves of ________.

  • A. Leadership
  • B. Oratory
  • C. Vigour
  • D. Dynamism
  • E. Resolve
Answer

C and D

All the answer options are qualities related to leadership and hence, each of them will fit in well with the remaining sentence when placed as the missing word. However, we need to choose two words that mean the same. Therefore, C and D are the correct answers as they carry the same meaning.

3. This is a superstitious practice that can be traced back to great ________, possibly to about 50,000 BC.

  • A. Archaism
  • B. Innovation
  • C. Novelty
  • D. Antiquity
  • E. Modernity
Answer

A and D

As this sentence is referring to a practice which can be traced ages back, it is unlikely that the missing word is related to modernization. Therefore, B, C and E are all incorrect. A and D mean the same and both of them complement the meaning being conveyed by the remaining sentence and hence, A and D are the correct answers.
