Answers:

  1. 3; When we are trying to ensure that the farmers do well, it is important for us to make credit available to them so that they can leverage (the use of credit or borrowed money to increase the earning potential) and do better.
  2.  5; Buyback of shares is a method of financial engineering. The main aim of buybacks is to improve shareholder value by utilizing the company’s surplus funds. So, ‘HCL Technologies’ has joined a growing list of IT companies that are considering buy-backs to boost shareholder value.
  3. 2; The North-South divide is becoming more and more pronounced (obvious/noticeable). In the same line of thought, ‘The impact of demonetization was most pronounced (evident) in the cash-dependent mutual fund industry with collections dipping (dropping) to around 70% nationwide from 99% in general.’
  4. 3; The rains rendered (made, caused) his escape impossible. Similarly, ‘Indian soya-meal exports have been  rendered (caused, culminated) noncompetitive due to the appreciation (increase in monetary value) of the Indian rupee and heavy influx (inflow, inundation) of imported edible oil.’ 
  5. 4; A reduction in import duty on gold will make its imports relatively cheaper and thus possessing it in an  illegal way will certainly be discouraged. So, ‘Unless the import duty is reduced on gold, smuggling will ‘continue.’
