Q1 the verb ‘have’ after the gap indicates a plural noun, whereas ‘research’ is uncountable – so the answer must be the people who do it – researchers.
Advice: look carefully at the grammar of the sentence around the gap.
Q3 needs a plural noun because ‘establishment’ here is a concrete noun meaning an institution, so is countable. The rest of the sentence ‘and private companies’ helps you to see this.
Advice: Think about the context of the sentence around the gap.
Q8 The negative prefix is wrong here as it contradicts the idea of ‘get stuck in’ in the previous sentence which means immobile. So people ‘regain mobility’ if they are stuck.
Advice: Think about the meaning of the whole text and check the sentences before and after the one with the gap to check that your answer makes sense.

Ex. 2
1.      think straight
2.    thought it through
3.    think the world of her
