QUESTION

Type II Introductory Question :
The time is rife (A) / ripe (B) for us to buy a new car – we can afford it. All sorts of knick-knacks filled every nook and cranny (A) / corner (B) of the room. She was ill (A) / hard (B) at ease throughout the interview: she kept fidgeting and looking around nervously. Stop dragging your head (A) / feet (B) and finish the project as soon as possible
  1. AAAA
  2. ABBA
  3. BAAB
  4. BBBB
Important Note: WU II questions will most certainly come as a TITA question, and hence, it is of pivotal importance to learn how to solve these without options.
 
 
ANSWER
 
Explanation:

'The time is ripe' is a proverb meaning that 'it is the most favourable time to do something'; 'rife' makes no sense in this context.

'Nook and cranny' is an idiomatic phrase meaning 'every part of a place'; the word 'corner', though it may seem semantically appropriate, cannot be used instead of 'cranny' in this phrase.

'Ill at ease' means 'uneasy' or 'anxious'; 'hard at ease' is meaningless.

To 'drag one's feet' means to 'act slowly or reluctantly'; 'head' cannot be substituted instead of 'feet' in this idiomatic phrase.

Therefore, the correct sequence is BAAB.

Hence, [3].
