1. It was argued that business schools must be either unnecessary or ________ because Japan does so well without them.

  • A. Detrimental
  • B. Deleterious
  • C. Delectable
  • D. Deliberative
  • E. Deliberate
Answer

A and B

C is clearly incorrect as the business schools cannot be 'delectable' at all. E is also incorrect as 'deliberate' is entirely unsuitable as the missing word since it will render the sentence meaningless. Out of the remaining three answer options, 'detrimental' and 'deleterious' are the only words that carry the same meaning and therefore, A and B are the correct answers.

2. The ________ belief is that management should be born out of experience and many years of effort and not learnt from educational institutions.

  • A. Atrocious
  • B. Noteworthy
  • C. Customary
  • D. Mirthful
  • E. Prevailing
Answer

C and E

The missing word has been used to describe the belief that is being discussed. The words, 'prevailing' and 'customary' describe the same aspect of the said belief. None of the other answer options mean the same. This implies that C and E are the correct answers.

3. The ________ among these traditional elements has made the industry highly productive and given corporate leadership a longer-term view.

  • A. Discord
  • B. Harmony
  • C. Discontent
  • D. Rivalry
  • E. Amicability
Answer

B and E

As the industry has become highly productive, it is evident that the missing word has a positive connotation. Therefore, it cannot be a word like 'discord'. The words, 'harmony' and 'amicability' mean the same and they fit in well with the meaning being conveyed by the sentence as a whole. Therefore, B and E are the correct answers.
