So another dream team is on its way I see. :D. As a member of last year's dream team and from my own experience will suggest one thing: CAT is random, focus on it definitely, but do not get carried away by mock scores or anything. And most of all focus on building your profile,otherwise clearing an interview would be difficult from IIIM ABC at least. If you're in final year focus on improving your GPA, because ultimately even if you manage to get into a b-school if your CV is not that impressive getting a great shortlist for summers becomes a bit difficult. All the best everybody.
P.S.-@pratiksahoo33 ,kaisa haal hain bhai?
It has become something of a literary
cliche to bash the thesaurus, or at the very least, to warn fellow writers that
it is a book best left alone. Some admonitions might be blunt, others wistful,
as with Billy Collins musing on his rarely opened thesaurus. But beyond the
romantic anthropomorphizing of words needing to break free from 'the warehouse
of Roget', what of Collins' more pointed criticism, that 'there is no/such
thing as a synonym'? That would suggest that the whole enterprise of
constructing a thesaurus is predicated on a fiction.
It is only a fiction if one holds fast to the notion that synonyms must be exactly equivalent in their meaning, usage and connotation. Of course, under this strict view, there will never be any 'perfect' synonyms. No word does exactly the job of another. In the words of the linguist Roy Harris, 'If we believe there are instances where two expressions cannot be differentiated in respect of meaning, we must be deceiving ourselves.'
But the synonyms that we find gathered together in a thesaurus are typically more like siblings that share a striking resemblance. 'Brotherly' and 'fraternal,' for instance. Or 'sisterly' and 'sororal.' They may correspond well enough in meaning, but that should not imply that one can always be substituted for another. Consulting a thesaurus to find these closely related sets of words is only the first step for a writer looking for le mot juste: the peculiar individuality of each would-be synonym must then be carefully judged. Mark Twain knew the perils of relying on the family resemblance of words: 'Use the right word,' he wrote, 'not its second cousin.'
No matter how tempting the metaphor, though, words are not people. We cannot run genetic tests on them to determine their degrees of kinship, and a thesaurus is not a pedigree chart. We can, nonetheless, look to it as a guidebook to help us travel around the semantic space of our shared lexicon, grasping both the similarities that bond words together and the nuances that differentiate them.
(1) Which of the following is the primary purpose of the passage?
A.To outline and examine the validity of the criticisms levied against the thesaurus.
B.To demonstrate that the thesaurus is not a collection of synonyms but a collection of related words.
C.To argue that despite the criticism against it the thesaurus can still be a useful tool to understand the relationship between words.
D. To highlight the futility of trying to find the perfect synonym.
(2) Which of the following is synonymous with 'predicated' as it is used in the last sentence of the first paragraph?
