Solutions to Q. 1-2:
1. The answer is
(D). A culture would require tolerance for diversity, and diversity can only
lead to it flourishing (expanding) and not brandishing, flaunting (showing off)
or displaying. Hence only (D) can be the answer.
2. The answer is (B). A contrast to someone we
have not learnt to trust would only be someone we consider honest, and that can
only lead to the narrator validating the story. Hence (B) is the answer.
Directions: Questions 3 - 6
relate to the passage given below:
Visualisation is the three-dimensional, multicoloured, singing-and-dancing
version of affirmations that enables the subconscious to prefigure future
achievement or success. It is a basic and fundamental human attribute, and one
that can literally be the difference between surviving and not surviving. When
Victor Frankl, the Freudian psychologist, was examining the discriminating
factors that enabled him, and many like him, to survive in the hell of the Nazi
concentration camps, the key factor was the ability to visualize. All survivors
had a vision of something beyond their current suffering, something more
worthwhile, and something worth hanging on for. This underlines the importance
of each individual having a vision of something, outside and larger than
herself, that gives her life some meaning. The very existence of a mission lifts
the eyes to something more meaningful and enduring — and in so doing provides
something to live for — at times when quiet surrender could be an attractive
option. Such a vision gives a further raison d ‘etre for integrity, by providing
a purpose that binds together the core values that make up self- orth.
One of the most powerful — and
difficult to achieve — applications of visualization is to focus your mind daily
on the person you intend to become. Create a clear mental picture of that person
— and see it in full color, and add sounds and smells, if they are appropriate.
The emotional values you add to the visualization are vital in making the full
connection to your subconscious, which acts only on thoughts that are mixed with
emotions. These techniques are, of course, widely validated in fields like sport
and business, where the peak performers are nearly all visualisers. They all
see, feel, and fully experience their success before they achieve it.
