ENGLISH QUIZ ( RULES AND EXAMPLES OF SPOTTING ERRORS - Part - III)

Example:
1. (i) A man like I will not do it. ( Incorrect )
 ( ii) A man like me will not do it.  ( Correct)

2.    A pronoun takes an objective case after ‘let’.
Example :

 ( ii)  Let me do it. ( Correct)

3.    Pronouns joined by ‘and ‘ remain in the same case.

( ii) He and she are brother and sister. (Correct)
2 ( i) He and me are friends. ( Incorrect)

4.    When  pronouns of second person and third person are used as subjects, the pronoun following them will be according to the second person pronoun.
Example:
1. ( i) You and he must bring his books ( Incorrect)
( ii) You and he must bring your books. ( Correct)

5.    When pronouns of second person and first person are used as subjects, the pronoun following them will be first person plural form.
Example:
1. (i) You and I must finish your work in time. ( Incorrect)
(ii) You and I must finish our work in time. ( Correct)

6.    The relative pronoun ‘that is used in preference to ‘who’ or ‘which after adjectives in the superlative degree.
Example:

(ii) The wisest man that ever lived made mistakes ( Correct)
2. (i) This is the best which we can do ( Incorrect)
(ii) This is the best that we can do . ( Correct)

7.    When there are two antecedents, a man and an animal or two things before the relative pronoun, we should use ‘that’.
Example:
1. (i) The man and his dog which passed through this road were killed. ( Incorrect)
(ii) The man and his dog that passed through this road were killed. ( Correct)

8.    The case of the noun or pronoun preceding or succeeding the verb ‘to be’ should be the same.
Example:
1. (i) It is him who came to see us. ( Incorrect)
(ii) It is he who came to see us. ( Correct)
2. It is me who caught the thief . ( Incorrect)
(ii) It is I who caught the thief. ( Correct)

9.    To show equality ‘as’ is used before after adjective.
Example:
1. (i) I can run as fast, if not faster, than you. (Incorrect)
(ii) I can run as fast as, if not faster, than you. ( Correct)

10.  More than one’ indicates a plural sense, but it is treated as a sort of compound of one. Thus it agrees with a singular noun and takes a singular verb.
Example:
1. ( i) More than employees were killed in the accident. ( Incorrect)
(ii) More than one employee was killed in the accident. ( Correct)
