And what accounts for this renewed interest in Shakespeare? As scholars point out, his psychological insights into both male and female characters are amazing even today.

C. academic scholars are putting together an anthology of Shakespeare's work.
D. New Yorkers have a renewed interested in the work of Shakespeare.
E. Shakespeare was a psychiatrist as well as a playwright.

A) A B) B
C) C D) D
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) B

The last sentence in the paragraph clearly gives support for the idea that the interest in Shakespeare is due to the development of his characters. Choice a is incorrect because the writer never makes this type of comparison. Choice c is wrong because even though scholars are mentioned in the paragraph, there is no indication that the scholars are compiling the anthology. Choice d is wrong because there is no support to show that most New Yorkers are interested in this work. There is no support for choice e either.

Q:

Jio is a big shot at reducing the cost of Internet access in India. The U.S., despite being the richest country in the world, lags far behind in terms of cost and penetration of Internet access. Cheap access to the Internet is an important step in bridging the access gap – access to good education, good healthcare, etc. But the market reaction to Jio is similar to the U.S. market’s reaction to firms announcing their intention to diversify.

(A) The final group of losers is the current shareholders of RIL. On announcement of Jio, the stock price of RIL fell.

(B) It shows that the market’s short-term reaction is usually proven correct in the long-run.

(C) On losing end, the first groups of losers are the shareholders of other telecom companies.

(D) The large amount of revenue the Government of India gets from auctioning off the nation’s natural resources is not necessarily a good thing because the Government does not have a stellar track record when it comes to spending the money. A large fraction of Government spending is wasted.

(E) The second loser is the Government of India. The big money the Indian Government was raking in selling cellular bandwidth was actually coming from the pockets of the cellular consumers. 

(F) The first obvious winners of this scheme are customers.

(G) The second winner is Mr. Ambani; he can potentially make a lasting impact as the man who brought Internet to millions of Indians.
