In each of the following questions, a paragraph with a blank is given. From the five choices given below, select the sentence which can go into the blank to make the paragraph logically coherent.

Yossarian wanted out. He knew the war just didn’t make sense. Men went mad and were rewarded with medals. All over the world, boys on every side of the bomb line were laying down their lives for what they had been told was their country, and no one seemed to mind, least of all the boys who were laying down their young lives. There was no end in sight. The only end in sight was Yossarian’s own. (___________________________) He couldn’t see them but he’d seen the flak whizzing up past the plane windows red and hot. One day one of those pieces was going to have his name on it.

A Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle. Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
B Every time he got into his plane to fly a mission people were trying to kill him. Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
C As Yossarian saw it, his only hope now was Doc Daneeka. Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
D He had no idea where to go. Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
E None of these Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
