(a) If the vaccine does indeed prove to be ready for large-scale use, it will be a milestone in the fight against malaria.
(b) Beginning next year, the World Health Organisation will begin pilot tests of the injectable malaria vaccine RTS,S (or Mosquirix) on 750,000 children aged 5-17 months in Ghana, Kenya and Malawi.
(c) Any decision on wider use will be taken based on the results of the pilot tests in the three countries.
(d) Although the number of cases globally and in the African region came down by 21% between 2010 and 2015, in 2015 itself the number of deaths worldwide on account of the disease was as high as 429,000.
(e) The vaccine has been successfully put through a Phase III trial, in which the drug is tested for safety and efficacy.

  1. After the rearrangement of sentences, what will be the second sentence?
    A) a
    B) f
    C) e
    D) c
    E) b

    View Answer
    Option C
    Explanation
    : sequence is: becadf => sentence (e) is the second
    On taking a glance at the passage, it is clear that the passage is about malaria vaccine. No other sentence other than b), provides complete information on anything and are dependent sentences which cannot be used as a starting sentence. Sentence b) completely introduces malaria vaccine and hence acts as the introduction.
    According to b) from next year WHO will pilot test malaria vaccine. Sentence a), c) and e) are also related to vaccine, so check among these sentences for the next sentence. Sentence c) is eliminated as it will follow sentence e) as e) talks about trail phase and c) talks about what will happen after e) has taken place. Now both a) and e) are eligible for 2nd position. a) says that if the vaccine does prove to be ready for large scale use… it means this will happen when it has been after the pilot test, So a) will not be the second sentence rather it will follow c) as c) is about pilot test. So second sentence is e)
    So we have now: beca
    From d) and f), d) will come first as f) is dependent on d).. f) says Africa accounted for 92% of these deaths… Which death? The death mentioned in d)
    So sequence is: becadf

Directions: The following five sentences have to be arranged in the proper sequence, so as to form a meaningful paragraph. On the basis of your sequencing, answer the questions that follow

1) The idea that downloading music free of cost is illegal got pushed aside and stored away in some corner of our minds, if it was even there in the first place.
2) Since nobody knew any better, nobody minded.
3) For the longest time, we were required to purchase music in the form of tapes or cassettes.
4) We are now in the 17th year of this century and have already moved on from using old cassettes and reached a point where they can be passed off as vintage collectibles.
5) How then, after years and years of piracy, has the market evolved to introduce us to platforms that actually convince us to turn towards paid music downloads?

    7th is the starting point.
    Point no 4 tells about that today in 17th year of this century, we have moved on from cassettes and have reached a point…. Next that – not much time has passed that we entered technology.
    Next – what used to be before? We were required to purchase… and since nobody knew about any better thing than cassettes, nobody had any objection purchasing…  And this was only untill we were introduced to internet.
    Now about – that downloading music free of cost has now stored in our minds. And then a question about piracy that after this piracy can the paid platforms convince us for paid music downloads?
    So the order is 7, 4, 6, 3, 2, 8, 1, 5

Directions: The following five sentences have to be arranged in the proper sequence, so as to form a meaningful paragraph. On the basis of your sequencing, answer the questions that follow.

b) As the election draws nearer many us feel dread at how a complex array of issues facing our country gets squeezed into a winner takes all, first past the post voting process.

c) Once it does and the impulse is transmitted, all the richness and complexity of the other cell inputs is lost.

d) It doesn’t seem right that the diversity of the electorate’s views is simplified into a simple decision. But that’s the way it works.

e) There’s no grey area or halfway house: a nerve cell either fires an action potential or it doesn’t.

Direction (8-10): Rearrange the given sentence to form a meaningful passage and answer the questions that follow.

a) Why are fewer Americans paying for the sports leader? One big reason is that fewer people are subscribing to pay-television overall—a phenomenon known as “cord-cutting”.
b) This has turned off customers and potential customers. Sports fans can get highlights free on social media; non-sports fans can get their fix from Netflix and Amazon.
c) For much of this century ESPN, the television sports network, has been Disney’s cash machine, collecting billions more dollars from American subscribers each year than the company gets from its blockbuster “Star Wars”, Marvel and Pixar films combined.
d) As the bundle of channels offered to homes has grown fatter, it has also become more expensive—the typical pay-TV bill in America has nearly doubled in a decade to more than $100 a month.
e) But for the past six years, fewer and fewer people have been paying for ESPN: the network’s subscribers base has declined from a peak of 100m households in 2011 to less than 88m now.
f) ESPN is by far the most expensive channel in the bundle—the network gets paid $7.86 per subscriber, according to Kagan, a research firm, while no other basic cable channel commands even $2 per subscriber.
