  7. 7. An example of a Vocabulary Question<br />Directions for Question: Fill in the blanks of the following sentences using the most appropriate words from the option given below. <br /> Active involvement in Social issues evokes a _______ response in India, compared to the involvement in religious issues, that almost _______ the nation.<br /> 1. tepid-boils 2. lukewarm-electrifies<br /> 3. turbid-placates 4. apocryphal-stupefies<br />
  8. 8. An example of a Verbal Reasoning Question<br />Directions for Question: 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. <br />The audiences for crosswords and Sudoku, understandably, overlap greatly, but there are differences, too. A crossword attracts a more literary person, while Sudoku appeals to a keenly logical mind. Some crossword enthusiasts turn up their noses at Sudoku because they feel it lacks depth. A good crossword requires vocabulary, knowledge, mental flexibility and sometimes even a sense of humor to complete. It touches numerous areas of life and provides an "Aha!" or two along the way. ____________________.<br />1. Sudoku, on the other hand, is just a logical exercise, each one similar to the last. <br />2. Sudoku, incidentally, is growing faster in popularity than crosswords, even among the literati. <br />3. Sudoku, on the other hand, can be attempted and enjoyed even by children. <br />4. Sudoku, however, is not exciting in any sense of the term. <br />
  9. 9. An example of an Usage Question<br />Directions for Question: For each of the sentences given below, choose the option, <br />which, fits into the sentence, while making logical and grammatical sense.<br />Regrettably(A)/Regretfully(B) I have to decline your invitation.<br />I am drawn to the poetic, sensual(A)/sensuous(B) quality of her paintings.<br />He was besides(A)/beside(B) himself with rage when I had told him what I had done.<br />After brushing against a stationary(A)/stationery(B) truck my car turned turtle.<br />As the water began to rise over(A)/above(B) the danger mark, the signs of an imminent flood were clear.<br /> 1. BAABA 2. AAABA 3. BBBAB 4. BBAAB<br />
  10. 10. An example of a Reading Comprehension Question<br />Directions for Question: Each of the passages given below is followed by a set of questions. Choose the best answer to each question.<br />The painter is now free to paint anything he chooses. There are scarcely any forbidden subjects, and today everybody is prepared to admit that a painting of some fruit can be as important as a painting of a hero dying. The Impressionists did as much as anybody to win this previously unheard-of freedom for the artist. Yet, by the next generation, painters began to abandon the subject altogether, and began to paint abstract pictures. Today the majority of pictures painted are abstract…….Contd…..<br />When a culture is insecure, the painter chooses his subject on the basis of:<br /> 1. The prevalent style in the society of his time.<br /> 2. Its meaningfulness to the painter.<br /> 3. What is put in front of the easel.<br /> 4. Past experience and memory of the painter<br />The above is just a sample illustration of the type of questions that appear in CAT. Since a Reading Comprehension takes up greater space, a complete passage could not be accommodated in the slide.<br />
