Verbal Ability - Question Of The Day

The question below contains a number of sentences. Each sentence has pairs of word(s)/phrases that are highlighted. From the highlighted word(s)/phrase(s), select the most appropriate word(s)/phrase(s) to form correct sentences. Then, from the options given, choose the best one.

v. The policies of the government were criticized for being backward(A)/ backwards(B).



OPTIONS


1) BABAB

2) BBABA

3) ABBAB

4) ABBBA

5) BAABA


ANSEWR


“Apprise” is to inform. “Appraise” means to estimate.

“Already” means prior to (already left etc.) “All ready” means completely ready –
this meaning fits in the context here. This eliminates options 1 and 5.

“Assent” is to agree; “ascent” means a climb. This eliminates options 3 and 4.

She “felt bad” means she was sorry. She “felt badly” does not have any meaning.

“Backward” means not progressive. “Backwards” means towards the back.

Hence, the correct answer is option 2.
