  1. Vartika Srivastava

    As all other options tell about the effects of net neutrality in the future.
    While 3rd one tells about the already seen benefits of net neutrality

    1. TG.Prabhat

      Thanks for sharing your approach, Vartika.
      I’ll confirm your answer after posting the solution tomorrow. 🙂

  2. Ans. 3rd statement
    All other statements talk about the impact of net neutrality

  3. The odd sentence is 3 Because all other sentences talk about the forthcoming implications of net neutrality meaning there was no net neutrality earlier.But sentence 3 talks about an already existing regime where net neutrality is present.

  4. Mayank Khanna

    3 is odd
    All other talk about net neutrality and line of thinking is about impact of net neutrality. Be it what it does and how India accept it.
    3 on contrary talks about not having net neutrality as it means that internet is already neutral which is not very much in line.

  5. TG.Prabhat


    The answer is sentence 3. All the other sentences explicitly mention net neutrality, or list its future implications. Sentence 3 is a comment on how the internet scenario has been in the past.

    1. Hi Sir, I got option 1 as my answer. My reason being that all other talks about the benefits of the Net Neutrality and how it will bring innovation or has helped businesses. But option 1 is a general statement. Is this reasoning incorrect?

      1. TG.Prabhat

        Even if one considers sentence 1 to contain only benefits, sentence 2 clearly does not fit that theme, Richa. It does not mention any benefits of net neutrality.
