Most people find change stressful, so I do not find it surprising thatresearchers have discovered a statistical relation between falling ill andthe experience of major life events such as death of a spouse, gettingmarried, etc. Those who have experienced a higher index of such changes, generally report a greater incidence of ill-health. Yet, most of us find that this research quite doesn't tally with the experience.Reasoning similarly, another group found a strong correlation between
health and hassles of life—the thousands of little daily irritations.
206. Generally people tend to get irritated to some extent.
207. Everyone does not experience stress, only few do.
208. One should avoid big changes.
209. The approach of the two research groups is not different.
210. The researchers' conclusion quite fits into everybody's life.
Directions (Qs. 211-215): Each of the following series consists of seven figures, two of which at the ends are unnumbered. One of the five numbered figures does not fit into the series. Find out the figure.
Directions (Qs. 216-220): The second figure of the problem figure bears a certain relationship to the first figure. Determine the relationship and hence find out the answer from the answer figures:
Directions (Qs. 221-225): Each question comprises question figures and answer figures. The question figures obey a specific pattern.
From among the answer figures, choose that option which follows the series or pattern, in the next step.
