1. Scientists have for the first time managed to edit genes in a human embryo to repair a genetic mutation, fuelling hopes that such procedures may one day be available outside laboratory conditions.
2.The cardiac disease causes sudden death in otherwise healthy young athletes and affects about one in 500 people overall.
3.Correcting the mutation in the gene would not only ensure that the child is healthy but also prevents transmission of the mutation to future generations.
4.It is caused by a mutation in a particular gene and a child will suffer from the condition even if it inherits only one copy of the mutated gene.
5.In results announced in Nature this week, scientists fixed a mutation that thickens the heart muscle, a condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

1.The study suggests that the disease did not spread with such intensity, but that it may have driven human migrations across Europe and Asia.
2.The oldest sample came from an individual who lived in southeast Russia about 5,000 years ago.
3.The ages of the skeletons correspond to a time of mass exodus from today's Russia and Ukraine into western Europe and central Asia, suggesting that a pandemic could have driven these migrations.
4.In the analysis of fragments of DNA from 101 Bronze Age skeletons for sequences from Yersinia pestis, the bacterium that causes the disease, seven tested positive.
5.DNA from Bronze Age human skeletons indicate that the black plague could have emerged as early as 3,000 BCE, long before the epidemic that swept through Europe in the mid-1300s.

1.This visual turn in social media has merely accentuated this announcing instinct of ours, enabling us with easy-to-create, easy-to-share, easy-to-store and easy-to-consume platforms, gadgets and apps.
2.There is absolutely nothing new about us framing the vision of who we are or what we want, visually or otherwise, in our Facebook page, for example.
3.Turning the pages of most family albums, which belong to a period well before the digital dissemination of self-created and self-curated moments and images, would reconfirm the basic instinct of documenting our presence in a particular space, on a significant occasion, with others who matter.
4.We are empowered to book our faces and act as celebrities within the confinement of our respective friend lists, and communicate our activities, companionship and locations with minimal clicks and touches.
5.What is unprecedented is not the desire to put out news feeds related to the self, but the ease with which this broadcast operation can now be executed, often provoking (un)anticipated responses from beyond one's immediate location.32.

Hello sir,

Please answer the following questions. This RC was asked in CAT-2017

1.People who study children's language spend a lot of time watching how babies react to the speech they hear around them.
2.They make films of adults and babies interacting, and examine them very carefully to see whether the babies show any signs of understanding what the adults say.
3.They believe that babies begin to react to language from the very moment they are born.
4.Sometimes the signs are very subtle - slight movements of the baby's eyes or the head or the hands.
5.You'd never notice them if you were just sitting with the child, but by watching a recording over and over, you can spot them.

1.Neuroscientists have just begun studying exercise's impact within brain cells — on the genes themselves.
2.Even there, in the roots of our biology, they've found signs of the body's influence on the mind.
3.It turns out that moving our muscles produces proteins that travel through the bloodstream and into the brain, where they play pivotal roles in the mechanisms of our highest thought processes.
4.In today's technology-driven, plasma-screened-in world, it's easy to forget that we are born movers — animals, in fact — because we've engineered movement right out of our lives.
5. It's only in the past few years that neuroscientists have begun to describe these factors and how they work, and each new discovery adds awe-inspiring depth to the picture

1.The water that made up ancient lakes and perhaps an ocean was lost.
2.Particles from the Sun collided with molecules in the atmosphere, knocking them into space or giving them an electric charge that caused them to be swept away by the solar wind.
3.Most of the planet's remaining water is now frozen or buried, but clues over the past decade suggested that some liquid water, a presumed necessity for life, might survive in underground aquifers.
4.Data from NASA's MAVEN orbiter show that solar storms stripped away most of Mars's once-thick atmosphere.
5.A recent study reveals how Mars lost much of its early water, while another indicates that some liquid water remains.

Hi Sir, this is an odd one out question. The options do not make any sense to me. Could you please explain the theme and the option that is out of context.

P.S- Since there is no separate section for "out of context" question, I posted it in "PJ" section.

Hi Richa, you're right- there is a need to create an 'out of context' section on the forum. 

Coming to your question, 'blanket coverage, headlines and lesser reported stories, story of .....creating a Super Mario World version' in sentences 1,3 and 5, respectively- point to these sentences discussing news stories. Sentence 4 explicitly mentions the news. However, sentence 2 has no mention of the news. Therefore, 2 is out of context. 4135 would be the sequence of the paragraph.

This makes sense now. Thank you! The key in such questions is to identify 4 sentences that talk about the same theme and then eliminate the last one. Is it?

Also, could you rate the difficulty level of this question out of 5?

Hi Sir, please help me with this "Odd one Out" question.

I think 4 is the odd one, am I right?

Yes, 4 is the odd one out, since it deviates towards other parties.
