PARus (Choice of Plausible Alternatives for Russian language)

Introduced by Shavrina et al. in RussianSuperGLUE: A Russian Language Understanding Evaluation Benchmark

Choice of Plausible Alternatives for Russian language (PARus) evaluation provides researchers with a tool for assessing progress in open-domain commonsense causal reasoning. Each question in PARus is composed of a premise and two alternatives, where the task is to select the alternative that more plausibly has a causal relation with the premise. The correct alternative is randomized so that the expected performance of randomly guessing is 50%.
