I think the answer should be prejudiced. Because in the sentence there is a "but" which is a thought reverser. And all others options are supporting 1st part :).

Geeku said: (Oct 27, 2011)  
Yeah it should definitely be prejudiced because of the 'but' in the sentence

Impartial is perfect word suiting their.

Next it is neutral.

What's the difference between 'impartial' and 'unbiased'?

Sandeep said: (May 10, 2012)  
Impartial is the correct prejudiced is completely different in meaning.

Maroof Kazmi said: (Mar 14, 2013)  
I think "prejudiced" should be the correct answer because the presence of 'but' in the question is indicative of the fact that the person being referred to act opposite to his nature of not taking sides.

Moreover the authenticity of 'unbiased' and 'impartial' is suspected as they stand opposite to what is mentioned in the question.

Paradox said: (Jun 23, 2013)  
Unbiased and impartial are the same as 'not taking side'. As there is a 'but' there has to be something which is opposite in meaning to the first part which is 'prejudiced'.

Koustav said: (Sep 17, 2013)  
I also think that prejudiced should be right as there is a reversal of in the meaning of the sentence. As all the other three options mean more or less the same.

Chintu said: (Oct 5, 2013)  
Prejudice is antonym of unbiased, so that can't be used.

Kaish Khan said: (Dec 28, 2013)  
Logic 1: Impartial, neutral and unbiased are synonyms and choosing any one of them would lead to confusion. Hence, the last option left is the answer.

Logic 2: The 'not taking sides' is contrasted with the word 'but' which leaves only option on the opposite side of balanced = prejudiced.

I think impartial or unbiased should be the correct answer not prejudiced. It is given in the sentence that "he does not take sides".

Rana Singh said: (Aug 20, 2014)  
I think D part is correct due to presence of BUT. He never take side means directly he is not taking side, may be indirectly.

Nivedita said: (Sep 18, 2014)  
Prejudiced means To cause(someone) to judge prematurely and irrationally.
but here he is very careful person therefore prejudiced is wrong

Also Unbiased means showing no prejudice for or against something; (BUT HERE NO SCENARIO IS MENTIONED AGAINST OR FOR WHICH HE WILL ACT).


John said: (Nov 20, 2014)  
Unbiased and impartial are the same. Can anyone explain to me why "impartial" is the appropriate answer?

Rishi said: (May 28, 2015)  
Unbiased is used for things. Hence impartial is used. And prejudice is no where fitting in this sentence.

Prejudice means and unfavorable opinion without knowledge or reason.

Partha Sarathi said: (Sep 25, 2016)  
I think 'neutral' is the best fitting word :3.

Can anybody explain why impartial?

Thank You.

Vicky said: (Feb 11, 2017)  
Neutral means not partial impartial or prejudiced if someone is very careful it should be neutral.

Siddharth said: (Aug 5, 2017)  
Unbiased is not wrong either as it denotes taking sides or making a decision favouring a party so that can be used too.

Ashish said: (May 1, 2018)  
I think both A and B same.

Ayushi said: (Jul 28, 2020)  
Can anyone explain to me Why impartial?

I think it's option D.
