Solutions

S1. Ans. (c)
Sol. The sentence can be corrected by replacing phrases (A) and (D) by phrases (I) and (IV) respectively. Phrase (A) creates a grammatical error in the sentence, as an apostrophe + S (‘s) must be used to show that one person/thing owns or is a member of something. However, an apostrophe after the “s” to show possession of a plural noun. Therefore, “courts’” should be corrected as “court’s”. Moreover, phrase (D) should be replaced phrase (IV) as phrase (D) in the context of the sentence should be used in comparative degree to apprehend the grammatical syntax of the sentence. All the other highlighted phrases are correct.

S2. Ans. (a)
Sol. The sentence can be corrected by replacing the phrases (A) and (B) by (I) and (II) respectively. It is to be noted that the phrase “a coalition of companies” means a collective group of companies as a single unit, therefore the verb associated to it should be singular as well. Moreover, in phrase (B) there is an error of phrasal verb. It is to be noted that “set off” means to start a journey while, “set up” means to commence a business. Thus, “set off” should be replaced by “set up” to frame a contextually meaningful sentence.

S3. Ans. (c)
Sol. The sentence can be corrected replacing the phrase (A), (B) and (D) by (I), (II) and (IV) respectively. It is to be noted that since the plural form “floods” has been used the verb associated to it should be plural as well, therefore, “has” should be replaced by “have” on phrase (A). Next, in phrase (B) instead of “of-limits”, “off-limits” must be used as it means out of bounds. Moreover, in phrase (D) the phrase “a large number” takes plural noun with it. All the other highlighted phrases are correct.

S4. Ans. (e)
Sol. The given sentence along with the highlighted parts is grammatically correct and contextually meaningful and do not require any replacements and corrections.

S5. Ans. (b)
Sol. Phrase (B) contains a grammatical error as “of” should be replaced by “with” to make the sentence grammatically and contextually correct.
