Sentence Elimination- Emoji

  1. Letters let us write words while emoji let us write gestures.
  2. Emoji are so widely used that they are rightly called the lingua franca of the world.
  3. They are the equivalent of gesticulating to add emphasis.
  4. While they convey a writer's intentions, emoji are not a language in themselves.


  • Correct Answer
    Choice B

Detailed Solution

Option A states that emoji help us "write" gestures. Option C mentions "gesticulating": it states that emoji are the equivalent of making gestures to add emphasis. AC is a link.

Now, options B and D are clearly at odds with each other. While option B refers to emoji as the "lingua franca" (common language) of the world, D states that emoji are "not a language in themselves".

The sentence group AC only states that emoji help in communication by adding emphasis. In other words, they add to written language rather than replace it. Option D takes forward the idea in A and C.

B is hence the odd one out.

Correct Answer: Choice (B)
