Q.6-10. In the following passage there are blanks each of which has been numbered. These numbers are printed below the passage and against each five words have been suggested, one of which fits the blanks appropriately. Find out the appropriate word in each case.

The Tata-Docomo dispute needs to be (6) in a manner that retains India’s and Tata’s reputation for reliability and integrity. If this calls for giving retrospective effect to a rule change, that should be done. When the trade-off is between the country’s credibility in the eyes of investors abroad and someone in the government having to make a (7) call that, at a later date, runs the risk of being dubbed arbitrary, the choice is for the government to find the courage to own up the decision, rather than let the nation suffer. The London Court for International Arbitration has awarded the Japanese firm $1.17 billion in compensation from Tata Sons. Even if Tata Sons can conceivably compensate Docomo from its assets abroad, without either taking permission from the RBI or the government or making other shareholders suffer, it would still mean  a rule that says, in effect, that Indian business should have access
(8) to foreign equity or debt but not hybrid forms of capital.
In 2009, Docomo had bought 26.5% stake in Tata Teleservices for about $2.7 billion on the understanding that if milestones were not reached in five years, Tata would enable Docomo to exit, either by finding a buyer for Docomo’s stake at fair market value or by Tata acquiring those shares at half the original value of the investment, whichever was higher.

When Docomo decided to exit in April 2014, there was no taker for the unprofitable operations. So, the Tata group sought RBI’s permission to pay out. However, a new set of rules banned any exit by a foreign investor at an assured price. Both companies had signed the contract at a time when there was no clear rule against options embedded in such (9).
Neither the RBI nor the government wanted to take (10) for letting Tata pay at the prefixed price and tossed the decision back and forth. This led to yet another loss for an Indian entity in international arbitration. Clarifying a rule with retrospective effect to help an Indian company honour its commitment to an external investor will attract no odium. The opposite is true.
