In the following passage there are blanks each of which has been numbered. These numbers are given 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 Centre’s reported decision to cap the subsidy on cooking gas makes perfect sense. Open-ended — and, in effect, unlimited — consumption subsidies on petroleum products simply misallocate resources, stymie investment and jack up the cost of funds across the board. The subsidy on domestic LPG cylinders is also overwhelmingly appropriated by the non-poor and needs to be phased out for the greater good. In parallel, what’s needed is stepped-up _(1)_ of piped cooking gas, on which there is no upfront subsidy.

Consumers currently pay less than half the market price for up to 12 subsidised LPG cylinders per year. Petroleum minister has been quoted as saying that while the number of subsidised cylinders will remain the same, their _(2)_ price will change. Note that last year, the LPG subsidy added up to over Rs 46,000 crore, much of it questionable. Worse, a 2012 survey _(3)_ that 25 per cent of domestic LPG in Karnataka were ‘ghost’ connections. And in 2013, it was found that 20 per cent of its 1.6 crore registered LPG consumers in Andhra Pradesh were _(4)_. The way ahead is to gradually phase out the upfront subsidy on a time-bound basis and opt, instead, for targeted direct benefit transfers using Aadhaar and other foolproof mechanisms. The idea ought to be to move to a competitive market price rather than a distorted subsidised price that is perverse incentive for _(5)_ and artificial shortages. In tandem, we need to genuinely open up LPG marketing so that multiple players can competitively seek custom and, in the process, drive down costs by improving logistics and supply.
