4) In finance, a __________ is an
instrument of indebtedness of the issuer
to the holders. The ___________ is a
debt security, under which the issuer
owes the holders a debt and is obliged
to pay them interest (the coupon) or to
repay the principal at a later date,
termed the maturity date. Interest is
usually payable at fixed intervals (semi-
annual, annual, sometimes monthly).
Very often it is negotiable, that is, the
ownership of the instrument can be
transferred in the secondary market.
This means that once the transfer
agents at the bank medallion stamp the

market. Thus, a __________ is a form
of loan or IOU.
5) Emission ____________ are the legal
requirements governing air pollutants
released into the atmosphere. Emission
___________ set quantitative limits on
the permissible amount of specific air
pollutants that may be released from
specific sources over specific
time frames. They are generally
designed to achieve air quality
standards and to protect human life.
Many emissions ____________ focus on
regulating pollutants released by
automobiles (motor cars) and other
powered vehicles. Others regulate
emissions from industry, power plants,
small equipment such as lawn mowers
and diesel generators, and other sources
of air pollution. While this have been
used to dictate limits for conventional
pollutants such as oxides of nitrogen and
oxides of sulphur (NOx and SOx), this
regulatory technique may be used to
regulate greenhouse gasses, particularly
carbon dioxide (CO2). In the US, this is
given in pounds of carbon dioxide per
megawatt-hour (lbs. CO2/MWhr), and
kilograms CO2/MWhr elsewhere.
6) The ability of humans to ___________
the landscape and recognize the
consequences of doing so puts us in a
peculiar position. There are several
animals on earth that show this same
kind of intelligence. Some animals have
extensions to ___________ their
environment and some do not. As a
species we are assigned the duty to
provide and proliferate. Our goal is to
achieve stability for ourselves and our
kin. However, we also have an obligation
to maintain the environment, as we
depend on the resources and services it
provides. The question then becomes:
what is our role in nature? Do we have
the right to _________ the land, factory
farm animals, and pollute waterways?
Or do we have an obligation to reduce
our numbers and merely subsist? In
order to answer these questions, we
must rely on our knowledge of Earth,
evolution, and our influence on the

____________ means the
determination of questions of a judicial
or quasi-judicial nature by an
administrative department or agency.
Like a regular court, administrative
bodies hear the parties, sift evidence,
and pronounce a decision in cases where
legal rights or duties are involved. The
main point of difference between
administrative _____________ and
administration of justice by the courts is
that administrative justice is
administered by administrative agencies
instead of regular courts. The
administrative courts follow the
principles of natural justice and common
good whereas the courts of law follow
the settled principles of law and
evidence. The administrative courts are
manned by officers belonging to the

After rearrangement correct sentence will be “National development goals, including the newly devised framework for disaster risk reduction and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, seek to lessen the impacts of natural disasters and promote sustainable development.”

‘Brand’ refers to a particular identity or image regarded as an asset. ‘Stock’ refers to the capital raised by a company or corporation through the issue and subscription of shares. ‘Bond’ is an interest-bearing security issued by governments, companies and some other organisations. ‘Barter’ refers to exchange (goods or services) for other goods or services without using money. ‘Bankruptcy’ means the state of being bankrupt. The given blanks can either use ‘bond’ or ‘stock’ as both are similar in meaning. Bonds and stocks are both securities, but the major difference between the two is that (capital) stockholders have an equity stake in a company (that is, they are owners), whereas bondholders have a creditor stake in the company (that is, they are lenders). Being a creditor, bondholders have priority over stockholders. Thus, ‘bond’ is the best fit word for the given blanks as it is clearly stated that it is a form of loan. This
makes option C the correct answer.
From the given passage it is evident that we
have to take the word filling the blanks in
relation to the word ‘emission’ which
means the production and discharge of
something, especially gas or radiation.
‘Norms’ refer to a standard or pattern,
especially of social behaviour, that is typical or
expected. Thus ‘emission norms’ cannot be a
correct term as it is not related social
behaviour. ‘Pollutants’ mean a substance that
pollutes something, especially water or the atmosphere. If this word is used in the given first blank it does not provide the correct term being defined. ‘Factors’ refer to a circumstance, fact, or influence that
contributes to a result. ‘Standards’ refer to a required or agreed level of quality or attainment. ‘Limits’ means a restriction on the size or amount of something permissible or possible. Of all the given options ‘factors’ and ‘standards’ can be seen as the most appropriate words for the given blanks. But an emission factor is a representative value that attempts to relate the quantity of a pollutant released to the atmosphere with an activity associated with the release of that pollutant. Thus, option D is the best fit answer for the given blanks.
‘Aspects’ mean a particular part or feature of something. ‘Pollutants’ mean a substance that pollutes something, especially water or the atmosphere. ‘Employ’ means give work to (someone) and pay them for it. ‘Operate’ means (of a person) control the functioning of (a machine, process, or system). ‘Manipulate’ means control or influence (a person or situation) cleverly or unscrupulously. The passage hints towards unscrupulous usage of the environment for our own betterment. Thus, option E is the best fit answer for the given blanks.
The given blank is to be taken in consideration
with the word ‘administrative’. ‘Administrative
Adjudication’ means a decision or sentence
imposed by a judge. ‘Administrative Division’
refers to is a portion of a country or other
region delineated for the purpose of
administration. ‘Administrative hearing’ refers
to an informal way of resolving disputes
between agencies and citizens without the
strict procedural rules of a court.
‘Administrative Service’ refer to managing, planning, directing, and coordinating supportive services of an organization. ‘Administrative legislation’ is the body of law and legal work that deals with government agencies. Thus, option A fits all three blanks correctly.
The error is in (a) part of the sentence.
Drug-addicted is the correct usage.
‘Drug -addict’ is used as noun but here it’s used as an adjective to modify the noun ‘offenders’.Hence ,drug-addicted will be used.
‘Incarceration’ means imprisonment.
To enhance vocabulary must refer to ⬇️
The error is in (d) part of the sentence.
Use ‘predominantly ‘ in place of predominant.
The error is in (c) part of the sentence.
Use ‘enlighten ‘ in place of ‘enlight’.
Enlighten(v) means ‘to make clear to someone’.
