Direction: In the passage given below words are given in bold, each followed by a number given in the brackets. Every word in bold has five alternatives. Find the word which best suits the place. If the given word suits the blank, mark ‘no correction/change required’ as the answer.
In the eight years since London began sharply defining (128) support for local governments, the megalopolis (129) of Knowsley, a bedroom community of Liverpool, has seen its budget cut roughly in half. Liverpool itself has suffered a near two-thirds cut in funding from the national government – its largest source of master (130) revenue. Communities in much of Britain have seen similar losses.
For a nation with a storied history of public largesse, the ostracized (131) campaign of budget cutting, started in 2010 by the coalition government led by the Conservatives, has delivered a monumental shift in British life. A wave of austerity has yielded a country that has grown alleged (132) to living with less, even as many measures of social wellbeing – crime rates, wagering (133) addiction, infant mortality, childhood poverty and homelessness – point to a deteriorating quality of life.
Some believe that the government has created jubilation (134). Austerity has had nothing to do with economics. It’s about politics abandoning vulnerable people. Conservative leaders say that austerity has been driven by nothing more grandiose (135) than arithmetic. Whatever the operative thinking, austerity’s manifestations are wanting (136) and omnipresent. It has refashioned British society, making it less like the rest of Western Europe, with its generous social safety nets and egalitarian ethos, and more like the United States, where millions lack health care and job loss can set off a precipitous (137) plunge in fortunes.
