Q: 44. 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.

When a submarine earthquake occurs, it is likely to set up a tremendous amount of shock,

Disturbing the quiet waters of the deep ocean. This disturbance travels to the surface and forms a huge swell in the ocean many miles across. It rolls outward in all directions, and the water lowers in the centre as another swell looms up. Thus a series of concentric swells are formed similar to those made when a coin or small coin is dropped into a basin of water. The big difference is in the size. Each of the concentric rings of basin water travelling out towards the edge is only about an inch across and less than a quarter of an inch high.

(A) Many of us have heard about these waves ,often referred to by their Japanese name of tsunami

(B) The swells in the ocean are sometimes nearly a mile wide and rise to several multiples of ten feet in height

(C) They cause tremendous destruction to life and property

(D) The swells are incomparable in its dimensions to any other kind of waves

Ans: B

Solution:

‘The swells in the ocean are sometimes nearly a mile wide and rise to several multiples of ten feet in height.’ - Option (B). The penultimate sentence of the given paragraph talks about the difference in the size of the concentric swells formed in the basin of water and those formed in the ocean. Sentences ‘Many of us …’ and ‘They cause …’ use pronouns that incorrectly refer to rings formed in the basin, since that is the last sentence given

Hence option B

Now for the second blank, we are saying since baseball is such an technicalities. So we are looking for a word that means boring. Dreary is that word. Invigorating is the opposite of dreary. Gloomy and morose are synonyms. Answer - bred, dreary

Hence option (A)
