Solutions

 

S1. Ans. (d)
Sol. ‘had’ will be used in place of ‘have’ because words like ‘declined’ and ‘did’ infer that the sentence is in past.

S2. Ans. (c)
Sol. Use ‘on’ in place ‘for’ because ‘congratulate somebody on something’ or ‘Be congratulated on something’ is used. Ex. I congratulated him on his grand success.

S3. Ans. (e)
Sol. The sentence is grammatically correct.

S4. Ans. (a)
Sol. In place of ‘his’, ‘him’ will be used because pronoun used after verbs like ‘hear, watch, behold, see, let, make and bid’ is in objective case. Ex. I saw him yesterday.

S5. Ans. (a)
Sol. Use ‘heard’ in place of ‘had heard’ because ‘had+ third form of verb’ is used in Past perfect while second form of verb is used in simple past.
