Question 28: We have good reason, of course, to be cynical about the morality of politicians. But if money alone was sufficient to buy the loyalty of legislators, there would be serial instability. Too many politicians, to paraphrase Oscar Wilde, can resist everything but temptation.

  1. And the bane of politics is the lack of ideological anchor among politicians.
  2. Defection remains an occasional game because money is, at best, a one-time payoff.
  3. Politicians, alas, suffer from a poverty of philosophy and are driven by narrow self-interest.
  4. Political defection on the promise of money and power vitiates the political atmosphere.

Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Paragraph Completion:

The para talks about how money alone is not always sufficient to buy the loyalty of politicians. That’s what the second sentence means. This is the crux of the para. Hence we have to look for an option that is related to this aspect.

Option (A) - Not connected to the main idea of the para.

Option (B) - Defection here means a politician deserting their own party and jumping ship to another one. This means that the politician is disloyal. The sentence says that defection is occasional because money (that is offered to a politician to switch parties) is a one-time payoff from which we can infer that it might not be always sufficient for a politician. This is related to the main idea of the para and hence is the correct answer.

Option (C)- Not connected to the main idea of the para.

Option (D) - This is not connected to the main idea that money alone is not always sufficient for a politician to defect.

The question is " Choose the Sentence that completes the Paragraph "

Hence, the answer is Sentence B

Choice B is the correct answer.
