@Y2kzap69 said: SET 1 1. WHAT ails the Arabs? The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) this week published the fifth in a series of hard-hitting reports on the state of the Arab world. It makes depressing reading. The Arabs are a dynamic and inventive people whose long and proud history includes fabulous contributions to art, culture, science and, of course, religion. Options 1. A quiet revolution has begun in the Arab world; it will be complete only when the last failed dictatorship is voted out. 2.The Arab world has experienced two decades of political stagnation. But there is a fever under the surface. 3. The score of modern Arab states, on the other hand, have been impressive mainly for their con

As objects, our photographs have changed; they have become physically flimsier as they have become more technologically sophisticated. Daguerre produced pictures on copper plates; today many of our photographs never become tangible thins, but instead remain

Quote 2 -

Ifv u r askinf to complete the para - it'll be option1

Quote 3 -

Clearly, Option 2 (The similarities between video games and art end where co-ownership begins.)

p.s - Puyz the reasone of very very very low participation in this thread is duplication of the main topic . we have another thread for almost the same topic - http://www.pagalguy.com/discussions/para-completion-sentence-deletion-cat-2012-25074733/3051709

Would request all puyz to continue their discussion there - besides questions posted on this thread are not clearly asking what they want - the conclusion or the completion of para which creates ambiguity

p.s - lemme no if m incorrect

cheers 😃

Set# 6:

Saying that taste is just personal preference is a good way to prevent disputes. The trouble is, its not true. You feel this when you start to design things. Whatever job people do, they naturally want to do better. Its a matter of pride, and a real pleasure, to get better at your job. But if your job is to design things, and there is no such thing as beauty, then there is no way to get better at your job. If taste is just personal preference, then everyones is already perfect: you like whatever you like, and thats it. As in any job, as you continue to design things, youll get better at it. Your tastes will change. And, like anyone who gets better at the job, youll know youre getting better. If so, your old tastes were not merely different, but worse. Poof goes the axiom that taste cant be wrong.

Which of the following strengthens the authors argument that taste is not just personal preference?

OPTIONS

1) People generally agree on what is good design and what isnt, and whether one kind of design is more beautiful than the other.
2) People often agree that some things are beautiful, even if they dont personally think so, because they feel they are supposed to think so.
3) People do generally get better at their jobs over time, including those who design things, but their improvement may be in other areas apart from change in taste.
4) What one society or culture considers beautiful, the other may consider ugly, and vice versa


Set 6:
my take: 4.. the only option which talks about personal opinions as in the above passage

SET 5

My Take:

option 4 : Though atoms were named by the Greeks in 500 BC, the development of apparatuses to probe matter particles less than 1015 metre made their study possible only in the 20th century.
