Sample Reading Passage:

Over the last decade, many brands and companies catering for enhancement of the male image have been successfully established, such operations ranging from male-only spas, boutiques, personal hygiene products, hair and skincare ranges, and male magazines with a strong leaning towards men’s fashion. Jamie Cawley, a proprietor of a successful chain of London-based male grooming boutiques, holds that his company’s success in this highly competitive market can be attributed to the ‘exclusivity’ tactics they have employed, in that their products and services are clearly defined as male- orientated and distinctly separate to feminine products offered by other organizations. However, market analyst, Kim Sawyer, believes that future growth in the market can also be achieved through the sale of unisex products marketed to both genders; this strategy is becoming increasingly easy to implement as men’s interest in appearance and grooming has become more of a social norm. 

Questions:

Choose No More Than Two Words from the passage to complete the sentences. 

1.A large number of companies and big brands are catering for the enhancement of male image by establishing _____________ centers. 

2. These operations have been set up with a strong leaning towards ____________. 

3. Jamie Cawley claims that his company’s success in this highly competitive market can be credited to the ____________ tactics. 

4. The products and services rendered by Cawley’s company were defined as ___________.

5. Kim sawyer affirms that the growth in the future market will be achieved through the sale of ________. 

Answers:

1.A large number of companies and big brands are catering to the enhancement of male image by establishing male-only grooming centres. Since male-only is a hyphenated word, it is counted as one word only. So, altogether two words which justify the instruction given. 

2. These operations have been set up with a strong leaning towards men’s fashion. 

3. Jamie Cawley claims that his company’s success in this highly competitive market can be credited to the exclusivity tactics. 

4. The products and services rendered by Cawley’s company were defined as male-oriented.

5. Kim sawyer affirms that growth in the future market will be achieved by selling unisex products

Explanation of the answers:

For the first question, it is clearly given in the second line of the passage that over the decades, a large number of brands and companies have been catering to the enhancement of male images by establishing male-only grooming centers such as spas boutiques, personal hygiene products, etc. So, the answer is male-only grooming. 

For the second question, we come to know from the fourth line of the passage that these operations have been established with a strong leaning towards men’s fashion. So, the answer is men’s fashion. Here, established means set up. 

For the third question, it is given in the sixth line of the passage that Jamie Cawley, a proprietor of male grooming boutiques in London, claims that his company’s success in the highly competitive market can be attributed to the “exclusivity tactics.” So, the answer is exclusivity. Here, attributed means credited. 

For the fourth question, we understand from the passage that the products and services provided by Cawley’s company are clearly defined as male-oriented. So, the answer is male-oriented. Here, provided refers to rendered. 

For the fifth question, it is clearly mentioned in the eighth line of the passage that market analyst Kim Sawyer believes that future growth in the market can be achieved by selling unisex products marketed to both genders. So, the answer is Unisex products.
