Verbal Ability - Question Of the Day


The following question has a paragraph from which the last sentence has been deleted. From the given options, choose the one that completes the paragraph in the most appropriate way.

People may be attracted to those who have similar attitudes, values, and beliefs and even marry them – at least in part – on the basis of this similarity because attitudes are highly visible and salient characteristics and they are fundamental to the way people lead their lives. Personality-related characteristics, on the other hand, take much longer to be known. However, once people are in a committed relationship, it is primarily personality similarity that influences marital happiness because being in a committed relationship entails regular interaction and requires extensive coordination in dealing with tasks, issues and problems of daily living. ____.


1) But Nature doesn’t really care whether they get along or not, as long as the two procreate.
2) That is why we try to choose someone with the same interests as we, someone from a similar background, with the same values, and with whom we have a lot in common.
3) Hence couples with similar temperaments tend to get along better, and that similar attitudes and beliefs are not an important factor.
4) Where personality similarity is likely to facilitate this process, personality differences may result in more friction and conflict in daily life.
5) Exceptions generally do not arise when some external factors, like interference of in-laws, is playing a role in the couple’s unhappiness, not their personalities.

For answer please visit next day.
