Solutions:

S1. Ans. (c)
Sol. Part (A) has error in it. ‘Sure’ will replace ‘Surely’ because ‘Felt’ past form of ‘Feel’. ‘Feel’ is a Copula verb which is followed by an adjective and not an adverb.

S2. Ans. (a)
Sol. Part (B) has error in it. ‘So’ will not be used, because ‘Because, since, as, etc.’ are conjunctions of reason. ‘Therefore’ or ‘so’ is not used after them.

S3. Ans. (e)
Sol. The sentence is error-free.

S4. Ans. (d)
Sol. The error lies in Part (C). The verb “knows” should be corrected to “know.”

S5. Ans. (c)
Sol. Error lies in Part (A). ‘In’ will be used instead of ‘With’. ‘Blind in’ is used with ‘the right of left eye’ and ‘Blind with’ is used with ‘Both the eyes’.
