SOLUTION 
1) d

We have to join two sentences from the two given columns in a way that they form a meaningful and grammatically correct sentence.The sentence A of the column 1 talks about groups gaining popularity, if we take a closer look we realize that it goes well with sentence E of column 2 as it talks about volunteers of a group helping people suffering from cancer. Similarly, when we take a look at sentence B, we realize that it will go well only with sentence F as sentence B talks about  relaxing bedroom environment and sentence F talks about ‘how to create that type of  bedroom environment.         

Hence,  pairing will be  A-E,  B-F, C-D

2) d

We have to join two sentences from the two given columns in a way that they form a meaningful and grammatically correct sentence.The sentence A of the column 1 talks about reforms, here one may be confused between statement D and E as both seem to be completing the sentence A but when we take a look at sentence B, we realize that it will go well only with sentence D. 

So pairing will be  A-E,  B-D, C-F

3) c
gerund  ‘seeing’ will be used after used to.
Example –  I look forward to meeting my sister.

5) A
 After superlative adjectives, there are two prepositions used  ‘of’ and ‘in’. We use ‘in’ with singular word referring to a place or group. 
For example – I am the happiest girl in the world.
We use ‘of’ before plurals, before time period such as year/ month.
For example –  Saturday is the best day of the week.
 Here, in this case subject is the ‘School’, thus, it should be ‘in the school’.
