Explanation



The correct answer for Blank (i) must support, or at least be consistent with, the contrast between Serling’s account, which emphasizes the recklessness of the company’s decision making, and the company’s image, that of a bureaucracy full of wary managers.

For Blank (i), “belies” is the best choice since Serling’s account would certainly belie or contradict the company’s image. “Exposes” makes little sense since the image presumably is already out in the open, and there is nothing in the sentence that suggests Serling’s account “overshadows” the company’s image. As for Blank (ii), “a cautious” is the most logical choice.

Neither “an injudicious” nor “a disorganized” makes sense in Blank (ii) as they both go against the notion of wariness.

Thus the correct answer is belies (Choice A) and a cautious (Choice F).

In the first blank negative word will be used an in second blank positive word will be used because the sentence "Company's image as ..." is giving the hint that the impression was good
