English (Cloze Test)

Dear Readers,
Many students have a confusion that Cloze Test is the test of only Vocabulary. To some extent it is tru but the cloze test also tests your grammatical skills. You have to keep the following points in your mind and then attempt the cloze test.



Just go through the passage without filling any gaps and then try to observe the following things :
i. The tense in which the passage is
ii. Check for the sense and sarcasm in the passage because some times 
iii. Check the options for positive or negative options

Then only complete the gaps you are absolutely sure of. 
Next try and find out what the missing words in the remaining gaps. See which part of speech may fit in each gap (article?, pronoun?, noun?, adverb?, adjective?, preposition?, conjunction?, verb?) and pay special attention to the grammar around the words in each gap. 
Many of the gaps may include the following: 

  • preposition following a noun, adjective or verb. (Example: good at languages) 
  • prepositional phrase. (Example: in spite of ) 
  • adverb. ( Example: He moved to London two years ago ) 
  • connector. (Example: First, he arrives; then he sits down; finally, he leaves.) 
  • conjunction. (Example: Although he is five, he can speak five languages. 
  • auxiliary verb . (Example: He has won 2 matches) 
  • an article or some other kind of determiner. (Example: I have no time) 
  • a relative . (Example: Bob, who I met two years ago, is my best friend) 
  • a pronoun , either subject or object. (Example : it is difficult to know) 
  • is there a comparative or superlative involved? (Example: she's taller than me)
Some sentences may seem to be complete and contain gaps that appear to be unnecessary. If you find gaps like this, you will probably need the following: 

  • an adverb. (Example: He is always late) 
  • a modal verb . (Example: They can swim very well) 
  • a word to change the emphasis of the sentence: She's good enough to be queen 
  • The problems are too difficult
A few gaps may demand a vocabulary item consistent with the topic of the text; or a word which is part of an idiomatic expression (example: Good heavens!); or a word which collocates with another one (example: do a job); or a word which is part of a phrasal verb (example: I was held up by traffic). 

Directions (Q.1-10): In the following passage, some of the words have been left out, each of which is indicated by a number. Find the suitable word from the options given against each number and fill up the blanks with appropriate words to make the paragraph meaningfully complete.
