1. Satire, mixed with sarcasm and humor allow the reader much-needed comic relief in the light of some of the episodes presented. This passage exemplifies the humor employed by the author: "Sigmund began to ponder how one coped with an imperfect, violent world once one's (1) ____________ was gone. He, with great melancholy, headed to the gaming capital of the world. " In other words, go to Vegas when all other doors close on you. (2) ____________, all Vegas aficionados will get a laugh out of this. At the same time, the author (3) __________ raises an important question about those who go to Vegas as a last resort in an attempt to find optimism.

Blank 1: bliss, enthusiasm, optimism

Blank 2: evidently, logically, typically

Blank 3: ironically, indirectly, evidently

Correct Answer: optimism, evidently, ironically

Explanation: In the given paragraph, the author shows how Sigmund resorted to finding solace in the gaming capital of the world when he had lost all hope. In the last sentence he compares the situation of Sigmund to that of those who go to Vegas to find optimism. This sentence throws light on the fill for the first blank; Sigmund pondered over how people coped with this imperfect world once their ‘optimism’ was gone. Out of the three given options, this word shows the lowest level of disheartenment. In the sentence containing the second blank, the author does not give much importance to the thought being expressed. He simply supports the first sentence in which he mentions that satire is mixed with sarcasm and humor; he explains the element of humor in this sentence. Consequently, the most appropriate word for this blank is ‘evidently’. Since it is an example that the author is giving, he is giving an evidence of his claim and we select the corresponding option. For the last blank, we select the option ‘ironically’. We continue with the argument presented for the second blank. The author says that the writer mixes sarcasm with humor. Where he explains how humor is brought out through the example, he mentions that the element of ‘irony’ is also evident in the example. The correct answer for the last blank is thus, ‘ironically’.

2. Ugly people are those, who possess an ugly heart. These ugly people are none other than the ones that do not have a fair deal of (1) __________ attachment with anyone. It is a fact that not every individual could be beautiful, and this (2) __________ is known to everyone. Therefore, nobody expects to see physical beauty in the other. It is the inner beauty that is (3) ___________ from all these things that is needed. If ugly people have a beautiful heart, they would be more beautiful as compared to those who possess physical beauty.

Blank 1: genuine, noble, emotional

Blank 2: reality, fact, logic

Blank 3: outstanding, variant, prominent

Correct Answer: emotional, reality, variant

Explanation: For the first blank, we reject the option ‘noble’. Attachment cannot be noble; it can be genuine or emotional. We have to notice here the context in which the sentence is uttered. The author says that ugly people do not possess a beautiful heart; they possess an ugly heart. These words comment on the emotional side of ugly people and not on their trueness. Its emotional attachment that can be measured and not genuine attachment, for either attachment is genuine or it is not. The author says that these people do not possess a fair deal of ‘emotional attachment’. This is the correct answer option. For the second blank, we reject the option ‘logic’ because there is no reason mentioned in the sentence. Out of the other two options, we select ‘reality’. The author already uses the word ‘fact’ in the sentence and hence we cannot select it as it shall lead to a repetition. It is a fact that not everyone could be beautiful and this reality is known to everyone. Or the last blank,we select the option ‘variant’. The option ‘prominent’ does not fit in the sentence in terms of meaning. Out of the other two options, 'outstanding' means exceptionally good whereas 'variant' means differing. The author says that everyone is not expected to possess physical beauty and it is inner beauty that is the variant from physical assets and this inner beauty is needed. Hence, 'variant' is the correct answer option.
