S6. Ans. (d)
Sol. The paragraph is describing about the methods for the collection and dispersion of funds in case of disasters and calamities. Since the collection has been declining, the panel has suggested that cess/tax should be imposed for disaster relief fund.  The most suitable phrase to fill the given blank is “to recommend ways to mobilise funding“ as the later part of the sentence “has sought the view of the GST Council” indicates that, the funds collected through taxes should be considered for the disaster relief fund. The other alternatives are irrelevant. Hence, the option (d) is the most suitable answer choice.

S7. Ans. (a)
Sol. The paragraph is describing about the methods for the collection and dispersion of funds in case of disasters and calamities. Since the collection has been declining, the panel has suggested that cess/tax should be imposed for disaster relief fund. The most suitable phrase that fills the given blank appropriately is whether a disaster cess/tax should be imposed nationwide or in a state-specific manner” as it fits appropriately in the context of the paragraph.  It should be noted that a panel of ministers has sought a view from GST councils regarding the collection of the disaster fund. Thus, the alternative (i) perfectly fits in the given context. The other two alternatives are irrelevant to the theme of the paragraph. Hence, the option (a) is the most suitable answer choice.

 S8. Ans. (c)
Sol. The paragraph is describing about the methods for collection and dispersion of funds in case of disasters and calamities. Since the collection has been declining, the panel has suggested that cess/tax should be imposed for the collection disaster relief fund. Therefore, all the alternatives aptly fit into the given blank as all of them convey the similar meaning regarding violation of any law for such a cess or tax. As earlier in the passage it has been mentioned that a panel of ministers has sought the view of GST council. The most relatable reason for such a discussion with the GST council could be the laws for tax or cess for disaster fund. Hence, the option (c) is the most suitable answer choice.

S9. Ans. (e)
Sol. The paragraph has described about the methods for generating more funds to counter natural calamities. Since the collection has been declining, the panel has suggested that cess/tax should be imposed for disaster relief fund. The preposition “from” is required to form a grammatically viable sentence. Hence, the option (e) is the most suitable answer choice.

S10. Ans. (a)
Sol. Since the paragraph is describing about the fund collection or mobilizing of funds for disasters through tax/cess, therefore, the alternative (i) “have tended to become cesspools of inefficient spending” appropriately fits in the blank. The later part of the sentence provides hint for the given blank by quoting an example of inaccurate transfer of the funds into National clean Energy and Environment Fund. The other alternatives are irrelevant in the context of the passage. Hence, the option (a) is the most suitable answer choice.

S11. Ans. (c)
Sol. The correct sequence is DFBEC.
