1.Unfurl (verb)

Meaning: make or become spread out from a rolled or folded state, especially in order to be open to the wind.
Example: An impressive agenda of economic reforms and social programmes has been unfurled by the Narendra Modi government over the last three years. 

2.Compliance (noun)
Meaning: the action or fact of complying with a wish or command.
Example: The media interactions after the 14th GST Council meeting in Srinagar on May 18 indicate that the government is working on developing the rules and procedures to be followed for determining compliance with the anti-profiteering clause. 
3.Cascade (verb)
Meaning: To cause to occur in a sequence or successive stages
Example: Here are the key features of the GST. First, it moves the tax system from production to consumption. It covers the gross domestic product (GDP) more comprehensively. Because the tax base is now a much wider set of transactions, hopefully the per capita tax incidence will be lower. Second, it eliminates a major bane of cascading, i.e. having to pay tax on tax. 
4.Quarantine (noun)
Meaning: a state, period, or place of isolation in which people or animals that have arrived from elsewhere or been exposed to infectious or contagious disease are placed.
Example: The  All India Muslim Personal Law Board’s resolution that those men who  pronounce triple talaq at one go will be socially boycotted  will spell  relief for women in the Muslim community (“Social boycott for triple talaq”, May 23). “Social quarantine” of such men will make them resort to  course correction and I am sure that  over a period, occurrences of triple talaq  will slowly disappear. 
5.Peremptory (adjective)
Meaning: insisting on immediate attention or obedience, especially in a brusquely imperious way.
Synonyms: brusque, imperious, high-handed, brisk, abrupt, summary, commanding, authoritative, overbearing, dogmatic, autocratic, dictatorial, bossy, domineering, arbitrary, arrogant.
Example: By his peremptory action, the Army chief has in effect rendered the CoI redundant; its findings will lack credibility. 
6.Subservient (adjective)
Meaning: prepared to obey others unquestioningly.
Synonyms: submissive, deferential, acquiescent, compliant, accommodating, obedient, dutiful, duteous, biddable, yielding, meek, docile, ductile, pliant, passive, unassertive, spiritless
Example: Traditionally, public ownership has left the carrier’s management subservient to the interests of the political class, while taxpayers funding the airline’s operations have been left holding the short end of the stick.
7.Garner (verb)
Meaning: gather or collect (something, especially information or approval).
Synonyms: gather, collect, accumulate, amass, assemble
Example: Rouhani secured 57 per cent of the vote against the 38.5 per cent garnered by his opponent, the hardline cleric, Ebrahim Raisi, who had the backing of the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. 
8.Alleviate (verb)
Meaning: make (suffering, deficiency, or a problem) less severe.
Synonyms: reduce, ease, relieve, take the edge off, deaden, dull, diminish, lessen, weaken, lighten, attenuate, allay, assuage, palliate, damp, soothe, help, soften
Example: Though Raisi campaigned on a populist platform — tackling corruption, alleviating poverty, larger hand-outs for the poor — voters preferred Rouhani’s record with the nuclear deal and promise of increased engagement with the world, ensuring accountability and domestic reform, and greater personal freedoms.
9.Robust (adjective)
Meaning: strong and healthy; vigorous.
Synonyms: strong, vigorous, sturdy, tough, powerful, powerfully built, solidly built, as strong as a horse/ox, muscular, sinewy, rugged
Example: A robust economy is crucial to make good on these promises. A bigger voice for the moderates and reformists in the all-powerful Assembly of Experts would help. Iran’s partners and the world can give Rouhani a helping hand and support Iran’s political evolution.
10.Modus Operandi (noun)
Meaning: a particular way or method of doing something.
Synonyms: method of working, method, way, MO, manner, technique, style, procedure, approach, course of action, plan of action, methodology, mode, fashion, process, means, strategy, plan, formula, recipe, practice.
Example: The modus operandi — anonymous people deposited and swiftly transferred crores of rupees in the society’s accounts in the names of slum dwellers — reflects poor regulatory oversight. Multi-state cooperative credit societies, which accept deposits only from, and give loans to, members, are regulated by the central registrar under the agriculture ministry.
