More often than not, mothers are ____________ for oddities of behavior in their offspring. ____________, single mothers children, raised even in the most difficult of times, do not display outrageous patterns of behavior, as do those of nuclear families.


+

Blank (1) talks about oddities in behavior of the offspring, which is not a positive thing. So options A and C, which give the positive words appreciated and praised can be eliminated
Blank (2): The second sentence gives evidence that single mothers are better at managing kids, so they cannot be blamed for anything. We can hence eliminate the option that suggests therefore, since it doesnt logically fit.

Q #2

In measuring electrical activity in different parts of the brain, researchers found that people who describe themselves as generally happy have more activity in the left prefrontal lobe of their brains than do other people. Therefore, a medication for ____________ the left prefrontal lobe of the brain would be an ____________ treatment for clinical depression.


+

If people are happy when there is more activity in a lobe, why should we suppress that lobe? Improving doesnt make much sense here either. A medication to stimulate that lobe makes sense, not challenge the lobe. Hence in Blank 1, stimulating will fit in

Lead researcher says the confusion results from a ____________ between the brain's external mapping of where it normally assumes the hands will be (on the appropriate side of the body) and its internal map of the physical source of the new pain information.


+

For the first blank; one cannot transmit the processing of information. Option B is ruled out. Moreover confusion cannot arise out of alignment. So we can eliminate choices A and D.

________around race, gender and religion sometimes seems to have gone beyond ___________ in academic circles. The world would do better if we could all speak with a lighter heart more often about these things.


+

The first sentence is not about the general lack of sensitivity around race, gender and religion in academic circles. So the correct word is sensitivity. The word parody makes sense when put in blank 2.
