S1. Ans. (b)
Sol. The correct phrase to use here is “has already begun” to maintain the correct tense and structure of the sentence.
The subject [The banking industry] is singular, therefore, the verb associated with the subject should also be in its singular form.
S2. Ans. (d)
Sol. The sentence can be made grammatically correct and contextually meaningful by replacing the phrase given in bold by [but mere thinking cannot give]. The correct option provides the correct replacement for the phrase “rather thinking cannot be given” by using the conjunction “but” to contrast the helpfulness of thoughts in science with their inability to provide the experience of the supreme truth.

S3. Ans. (e)
Sol. The given sentence is grammatically correct and contextually meaningful. As, the phrase given in bold completely justifies the grammatical and contextual structure of the sentence, it does not require any correction or replacement.

S4. Ans. (c)
Sol. To make the sentence grammatically correct, replace the phrase given in bold by [I find that for the first time].

S5. Ans. (b)
Sol. The correct phrase that should replace the incorrect phrase in bold should be “restricts the number of visitors”. It is to be noted that the subject [the hospital] in the sentence is singular which should be associated with the singular verb, hence the correct form of verb should be “restricts”. Moreover, the expression “the number of” always takes a plural noun.
