General English Questions with Answers

Select the most appropriate synonym of the bracketed word to fill in the blank.

(A) new

(B) flashy

(C) global

(D) Asiatic


Correct Answer : A
Explanation :

The most appropriate synonym for "modern" in the context provided is "new." Therefore, the correct option to fill in the blank is:

New

Explanation: The sentence suggests that Rahul's experiences were all modern until he stepped onto the field, indicating that his experiences were contemporary or recent. "New" is the most fitting synonym for "modern" in this context.


Q :  

The monster trucks have very _________ engines, they can probably pull a train coach without any problem.

Select the most appropriate option to fill in the blank.

(A) dominant

(B) forceful

(C) impressive

(D) powerful


Correct Answer : D
Explanation :

The most appropriate option to fill in the blank is:

Powerful

Explanation: 

The sentence implies that the engines of monster trucks are strong enough to potentially pull a train coach, indicating a high level of power. The word "powerful" best describes the strength and capability of these engines in this context. Options 1, 2, and 3 don't directly convey the sense of strength and capacity as effectively as "powerful" does in this sentence.


Q :  

If you are the one who is planning to lose weight, remember to keep your snacking________.

A sentence has been given with a blank to be filled with an appropriate word. Choose the correct alternative

(A) outgoing

(B) prejudiced

(C) uncontrolled

(D) moderate


Correct Answer : D
Explanation :

The correct alternative to fill in the blank in the sentence "If you are the one who is planning to lose weight, remember to keep your snacking________" is:

Moderate

Solution:

"Outgoing" does not fit the context as it refers to being sociable or extroverted, which doesn't relate to snacking habits.

"Prejudiced" means having preconceived opinions that are not based on reason or experience. It's irrelevant to the context of snacking.

"Uncontrolled" implies lacking restraint or regulation, which is the opposite of what the sentence is advising.

"Moderate" is the appropriate word choice as it suggests keeping snacking within reasonable limits, which is often advised for those trying to lose weight. It implies controlling the amount and frequency of snacking to support weight loss efforts.


Q :  

If you try to do something every day you will __________ progress.

Select the most appropriate option to fill in the blank. 

(A) hold

(B) get

(C) make

(D) catch


Correct Answer : C
Explanation :

The most appropriate option to fill in the blank is:

make

The complete sentence would be: "If you try to do something every day, you will make progress."

Explanation:

"Hold progress" doesn't make sense in this context.

"Get progress" is grammatically incorrect.

"Catch progress" also doesn't fit logically in the sentence.

"Make progress" is the correct idiom commonly used to indicate progress being achieved through consistent effort.


Q :  

Select the most appropriate option to fill in the blank.

The anchor gave us a _________ welcome, a pleasant smile and a bouquet on reaching the hotel.

(A) warm

(B) worth

(C) winning

(D) wonderful


Correct Answer : A
Explanation :

The most appropriate option to fill in the blank is:

warm

Explanation: The sentence describes the welcome given by the anchor, which includes a pleasant smile and a bouquet upon reaching the hotel. "Warm" is the most suitable adjective to describe such a welcoming gesture. The other options don't fit the context as well:

"Worth" doesn't make sense in the context of describing a welcome.

"Winning" might suggest success or victory but doesn't fit the description of a welcome.

"Wonderful" is close in meaning to "warm," but "warm" specifically captures the idea of a friendly and inviting reception.


Q :  

Select the most appropriate adverb to fill in the blank.

They supplied the required human resource _______________.

(A) faultlessly

(B) heavy

(C) clear

(D) able


Correct Answer : A
Explanation :

The most appropriate adverb to fill in the blank would be "clearly."

So, the sentence would be: "They supplied the required human resources."

Solution:

"Faultlessly" doesn't fit the context because it refers to doing something without making mistakes, which may not necessarily apply to supplying human resources.

"Heavy" is an adjective, not an adverb, and it doesn't make sense in the context of supplying human resources.

"Clear" is an adjective, not an adverb, and it doesn't make sense in the context of describing how human resources were supplied.

"Able" is an adjective, not an adverb, and it doesn't fit the context of describing how human resources were supplied.


Q :  

The doctor directed the nurse to administer an ________ medicine to the patient.

Select the most appropriate option to fill in the blank.

(A) official

(B) eminent

(C) alternative

(D) insightful


Correct Answer : C
Explanation :

The most appropriate option to fill in the blank is:

Official

Explanation: In this context, the word "official" suggests that the medicine being administered is recognized and approved by the relevant authorities or medical professionals. It implies that the medicine is legitimate and prescribed within the official protocols of medical practice.

The other options do not fit well in the context:

"Eminent" means distinguished or noteworthy, but it doesn't directly relate to medicine in this context.

"Alternative" suggests a different option, which may not align with the doctor's directive.

Insightful" refers to having a deep understanding or perception, which doesn't make sense in the context of administering medicine.


Q :  

it is very difficult for her to_________________.

Select the most appropriate option to fill in the blank.

(A) keep a secret

(B) touch a secret

(C) make a secret

(D) cry a secret


Correct Answer : A
Explanation :

The most appropriate option to fill in the blank is:

keep a secret

Explanation: The phrase "keep a secret" means to not reveal or disclose confidential information to others. In the context provided, it indicates difficulty for the person to maintain confidentiality or keep information private. The other options do not convey the intended meaning of the sentence.


Q :  

The planets are __________ around the sun.

Select the most appropriate option to fill in the blank.


(A) revolving

(B) circling

(C) rotating

(D) rounding


Correct Answer : A
Explanation :

The most appropriate option to fill in the blank is:

revolving

Explanation:

"Revolving" is the correct term to describe the motion of planets around the sun. Revolving implies orbiting or moving in a circular or elliptical path around a central point, which accurately describes the movement of planets around the sun.

"Circling" could also be considered, but "revolving" is more commonly used in astronomical contexts to describe the movement of celestial bodies around one another.

"Rotating" refers to the spinning motion of an object around its axis, which is not the correct term to describe the planets' motion around the sun.

"Rounding" is not the appropriate term to describe the motion of planets around the sun.



Q :  

The contingent managed to _______ successfully.

Select the most appropriate option to fill in the blank.

(A) park the deal

(B) close the deal

(C) heal the deal

(D) catch the deal


Correct Answer : B
Explanation :

The most appropriate option to fill in the blank is:

close the deal

The sentence would then read: "The contingent managed to close the deal successfully."

Explanation:

"Park the deal" doesn't make sense in this context. "Park" usually refers to temporarily setting something aside or storing it.

"Heal the deal" is not a commonly used phrase. While "heal" can metaphorically refer to repairing or restoring something, it's not typically used in the context of deals.

"Catch the deal" doesn't fit the context either. "Catch" implies capturing something, but it's not idiomatic when referring to completing or finalizing a deal.

"Close the deal" is the correct idiomatic phrase used to indicate completing a negotiation or agreement. It fits well in the context of business deals or agreements being finalized.
