Q: 32. The following question has a paragraph from which the last sentence has been deleted. Choose the option that completes the paragraph in the MOST APPROPRIATE way. Aakash has focused attention on the need for a digital educational ecosystem. The creation of digital educational content that can be consumed on a low-end tablet and the availability of computer programs that can run on such basic resources have received a boost. The initial premise remains valid.

(A) Hardware manufacturers have realized that India provides a potentially vast low-end market

(B) Indian telecom service providers have started looking at bundled device-plus-data plans to suit pockets at a low price-point

(C) Aakash suffers from poorly conceived specifications, unrealistically grandiose plans, and massive time and cost overruns

(D) There is a digital divide that cripples Indian students from low-income backgrounds

Ans: D

Solution:

  • The thrust of the passage is the openness that Aakash has entailed for low-income families to provide educational tools to their children. It ends with saying “The initial premise remains valid.” ‘There is a …’ fits because it talks about the digital divide that harms low-income households, a divide that Aakash seeks to plug.
  • ‘Hardware manufacturers …’ is related but not the answer since the focus is on hardware manufacturers. ‘Indian telecom …’ similarly looks at Indian telecom providers. In both of these sentences, the premise is not discussed. ‘Aakash suffers …’ is irrelevant since it is critical of Aakash
  • ‘There is a digital divide that cripples Indian students from low – income backgrounds.’

Hence option There is a digital divide that cripples Indian students from low-income backgrounds
