Solutions:

S1. Ans. (c)
Sol. The error lies in the ‘by the loud noise being made’. It is to be noted that whenever the words like “startled/ astonished/ amazed” are present in a sentence, they will be directly followed by “at” preposition instead of “by”. Since, the correction is made in option (c), so we will choose option (c) as the correct answer choice.

S2. Ans. (c)
Sol. The error lies in the use of second ‘have’ in the sentence. ‘Have’ should be replaced with ‘has’ as after the words like “each of/ either of/ everyone of’ the Noun/Pronoun should be Plural, whereas the Verb should be singular. Hence, option (c) is the correct answer choice.

S3. Ans. (d)
Sol. The error lies in the last part of the sentence. ‘Badly’ should be used in the place of ‘bad’ as ‘bad’ is an adjective whereas ‘badly’ is an adverb. And we are talking about the verb in the given sentence. Hence, option (d) is correct answer choice.

S4. Ans. (a)
Sol. The use of ‘be’ with ‘will’ is unnecessary. The given sentence is in active voice. The starting sentence should also be in simple future active voice whose formation should be subject + shall/will+V1. So ‘the old system will result’ will be used. Hence, option (a) is correct answer choice.

S5. Ans. (e)
Sol. The given sentence is grammatically as well as contextually correct. Hence, option (e) is the correct answer choice.
