Q16. Mauritius was a British colony for almost 200 years, excepting for the domains of administration and teaching, the English language was never really spoken on the island.
excepting for
except in
but except in
but excepting for
with the exception of
Solution:
Idiom; Grammatical construction
This two-clause sentence describes an apparent incompatibility: as a British colony, Mauritius might be expected to be English-speaking, but in fact it was not. To describe this apparent contradiction and to avoid a comma splice, the clauses should be joined by the conjunction but. Domains describes places in which English is spoken; for is the incorrect preposition. Excepting is not idiomatic English in this case.
(c) Correct. The two independent clauses are separated by but, and except in is an appropriate idiom.

Q17. George Sand (Aurore Lucile Dupin) was one of the first European writers to consider the rural poor to be legitimate subjects for literature and portray these with sympathy and respect in her novels.
to be legitimate subjects for literature and portray these
should be legitimate subjects for literature and portray these
as being legitimate subjects for literature and portraying them
as if they were legitimate subjects for literature and portray them
legitimate subjects for literature and to portray them
Solution:
Idiom; Diction; Parallelism
When consider means think of or believe after careful deliberation, it does not require as or any other expression before the object. The most concise phrase is to consider the rural poor legitimate subject for literature. This phrase should have a parallel in to portray them with sympathy and respect. While it is not essential to repeat to, the repetition elegantly reinforces the parallelism. The correct pronoun must follow portray: Sand portrayed them. The pronoun them refers to the rural poor and is the direct object. These (pl. of this) is a demonstrative pronoun, and here it is unclear what it is pointing to as its antecedent: Subject is the nearest plural noun antecedent, but these could also point to something not in the sentence, an unknown noun. Only the objective form of the pronoun (them) clearly points back to its antecedent the rural poor.
(e) Correct. In this sentence, the correct idiom is used with the verb consider, the correct pronoun, them, replaces the incorrect these; to consider and to portray are parallel.

Q18. The World Wildlife Fund has declared that global warming, a phenomenon most scientists agree to be caused by human beings in burning fossil fuels, will create havoc among migratory birds by altering the environment in ways harmful to their habitats.
a phenomenon most scientists agree to be caused by human beings in burning fossil fuels,
a phenomenon most scientists agree that is caused by fossil fuels burned by human beings,
a phenomenon that most scientists agree is caused by human beings’ burning of fossil fuels,
which most scientists agree on as a phenomenon caused by human beings who burn fossil fuels,
which most scientists agree to be a phenomenon caused by fossil fuels burned by human beings,
Solution:
Logical predication; Rhetorical construction
The underlined portion of the sentence is an appositive defining global warming as a phenomenon caused by the burning of fossil fuels by humans. Because this appositive intervenes between the subject (global warming) and verb (will create) of a clause, it should be expressed as clearly and economically as possible so as not to confuse the meaning of the sentence as a whole.
(c) Correct. The phrase human beings’ burning is more economical than constructions with prepositional phrases or relative clause.

Q19. New theories propose that catastrophic impacts of asteroids and comets may have caused reversals in the Earth’s magnetic field, the onset of ice ages, splitting apart continents 80 million years ago, and great volcanic eruptions.
splitting apart continents
the splitting apart of continents
split apart continents
continents split apart
continents that were split apart
Solution:
Parallelism
This sentence lists four effects of catastrophic impacts; each effect, except the one included in the underlined portion, is given in noun form: reversals, the onset, eruptions. Splitting is a verb and thus not parallel to the other nouns in the series; in the second option splitting is a noun. Splitting may be transformed into a noun by adding the article the
(b) Correct. The splitting is a gerund, or noun form, and is properly used in this sentence; it is parallel to the other nouns.

Q20. A firm specializes in the analysis of handwriting claims from a one-page writing sample that it can assess more than 300 personality traits, including enthusiasm, imagination, and ambition.
from a one-page writing sample that it can assess
from a one-page writing sample it has the ability of assessing
the ability, from a one-page writing sample, of assessing
to be able, from a one-page writing sample, to assess
being able to assess, from a one-page writing sample
Solution:
Idiom; Rhetorical construction
The meaning of this sentence becomes lost in an awkward and ungrammatical construction. The verb claims may be followed by one of two correct constructions: claims that + a subordinate clause, or claims + the infinitive. When the prepositional phrase from a one-page writing sample is placed between claims and that, the result confuses and distorts the meaning by suggesting that the claim is contained in the writing sample. Instead, the firm claims to be able … to assess. The prepositional phrase should be placed between a pair of commas to show clearly that it is additional information not crucial to understanding the sentence.
(d) Correct. The correct idiomatic construction (claims to be able to assess) is used in this sentence, and the prepositional phrase is set off in a pair of commas to prevent misreading.
