    Study the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below:
    In the school kitchen several members of the team complained of one of the senior supervisors - Ranveer. The complaint consists in the fact that he raises his voice and tries to force people for normal behaviors. The school management called him into the office and tried to find out more of his professional background. After a period of discussion the reason for his behavior was found out. He is a former army commander. From that moment the principal tried to explain to him that he is now working in civilian life and team members are ordinary people and that respect is gained by the power of the example and not by the power that his position gives him in the kitchen. It’s been almost two years since then and changes in his attitude have been observed. It is important to reflect and analyze the nature of conflict and individual attitudes to it.
    How it could have been recognized that Ranveer gradually changed his attitude in two years?

    A) The principal investigated about Ranveer from the people in the kitchen

    B) The people and principal observed the changes in his attitudes in these two years

    C) There is a difference in his present attitude compared to his attitude two years before

    D) The people observed a difference in his attitude compared to his attitude two years before

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    Rationale: (c) Reasoning type: Comparative Reasoning \[\to \]comparing one thing against another in a given condition Focus of the question: Assumption and argument\[\to \]possible reasons and justification Relationship analogy: Group analogy\[\to \]these are objects which form a specifically named group when several are put together The question focuses on assumptions (right assumption or possibilities). Both options C and D can be correct. But Ranveer is the subject of the passage. Until and unless there is an exhibition of behaviors out of his new attitudes by himself, it is difficult for people to observe and accept that he has changed. That’s why the answer can be either or D. There is a subject exhibition and then comparison by the people in the kitchen.
