to urgently consider its options ahead.


6) B
Quest
Go with elimination method. In the given sentence, only ‘quest’ make it grammatically as well as contextually correct.
As we can see we need a noun to fill the blank. Delude and imbibe are verbs so they can be easily eliminated. 
Animosity (n) which means hatred /enmity doesn’t fit in the context.
 Quest(n) which means ‘the act of seeking anything’ fits in the context appropriately. 
7) B
Look around – to search a place,to take note of what is going on.
8) B



Insists



In the given sentence, only ‘insists’ make it grammatically as well as contextually correct.

Option (A) is incorrect because after adverb ‘finally’ we need a verb but ‘culpable’ is an adjective.


Option (C) is incorrect because it is both grammatically and contextually wrong. As ‘Mr Gandhi’ is a name we 


use ‘s’/ ‘es’ form of verb.
Option (D) is incorrect because ‘cossets’ does not make any sense.


Option (E) is incorrect because ‘alleviate’ does not fit here contextually.




9) A
‘remains a challenge’ is the correct usage here. Singular form of the verb will be used for the singular act ‘The continuance’. 



10) D
Persuasive
In the given sentence, only ‘persuasive’ make it grammatically as well as contextually correct.
Option (A) is incorrect because before noun ‘skills’ we 
need an adjective. But ‘ritual’ is a noun.
Option (B) is incorrect because ‘propound’ does not 
make any sense here.
Option (C) is incorrect because ‘adamant’ is both 
grammatically and contextually wrong.
