Solutions

S1. Ans. (a)
Sol. ‘She’ should be added before ‘being’ because, if she is not added, then ‘the police’ becomes the subject and the sentence becomes senseless.

S2. Ans. (b)
Sol. ‘One’s’ should be used in place of ‘his’. Since, with ‘one’ as subject, ‘one’s’ is used as possessive adjective.

S3. Ans. (b)
Sol. ‘He’ should be used in place of ‘him’ since, nominative case should be used after ‘If I were’.

S4. Ans. (a)
Sol. ‘It’ should be added before ‘being’.

S5. Ans. (c)
Sol. ‘He’ should not be used here.

S6. Ans. (d)
Sol. ‘Them’ should be used in place in place of ‘it’.

S7. Ans. (b)
Sol. ‘himself’ should not be used. Since, reflexive pronoun is not used after bathe.

S8. Ans. (d)
Sol. ‘Separation from her’ is correct phrase.

S9. Ans. (e)
Sol. No error

S10. Ans. (d)
Sol. ‘favour from you’ is correct phrase.

S11. Ans. (a)
Sol. ‘Mohan, Mayank and I’ is the correct order that should be used. The usual order is second, third, first person.

S12. Ans. (b)
Sol. ‘was it only I’ should be used in place of ‘was it only me’. Since, it is the interrogative form of ‘It was only I’, hence the rule of usage of subjective pronoun will follow.

S13. Ans. (c)
Sol. ‘That of’ should be used between ‘than’ and’ ‘any’ since, we want to compare the police of Delhi with the police of all the other states and not with the states.

S14. Ans. (a)
Sol. According to the rule 1 of uses of pronouns. ‘You, he and I’ is the correct order of pronouns that should be followed in this sentence.

S15. Ans. (b)
Sol. ‘How to swim’ should be used in place of ‘to swim’. Since, ‘wh’ family follows ‘know’ and wonder, if the verbs are in infinitive form (i.e. to + v1).
