S6. Ans. (b);
Sol. Replace ‘discriminating on’ with ‘discriminating against’.

S7. Ans. (b);
Sol. Replace ‘Although’ with ‘In spite of’.

S8. Ans. (e);

Sol. No correction required .

S9. Ans. (c);

Sol. Replace ‘given orders to furnished’ with ‘ordered to furnish’.

S10. Ans. (c);
Sol. Replace ‘is declared’ with ‘being declared’.

S11. Ans.(a)
Sol. There is an error in part (a) of the sentence. The subject “Silicon Valley’s social media giant” should be replaced by its plural form “Silicon Valley’s social media giants” , it can be verified from the latter or the bold parts of the sentence that the subject they are referring should be in plural form [themselves]. Other parts of the sentence are grammatically correct. Hence (a) is the correct choice.

S12. Ans. (e)
Sol. There is no error in any part of the sentence as the sentence is grammatically correct. Hence (e) is the correct choice.

S13. Ans.(a)
Sol. The use of the word ‘inflammable’ is wrong in sentence (a) as inflammable means flammable and not “not flammable” which makes it contextually wrong.
This mistake is very common for a very good reason: It just makes sense! As we mentioned before, the prefix in- means “not,” so it would make sense for the word “inflammable” to mean “not flammable.” The problem, though, is that “inflammable” comes from the word “enflame.”

S14. Ans.(b)
Sol. The use of bemused is incorrect in sentence (b). The correct word to be used here is ‘amused’. “Amused” and “bemused” look very similar, so it makes sense that people have started using the word “bemused” to mean amused in a calm way. What the word really means, though, is confused, puzzled or bewildered. It can sometimes also mean to be lost in thought.

S15. Ans.(d)
Sol. The use of “infer” in statement (d) is incorrect. The word that must be used here is imply “instead”.
“Imply” does mean to suggest something, but “infer” means to figure something out that isn’t stated outright.
“Infer” and “imply” are connected in meaning, but they are not the same thing. If you tell someone, “Wow this bag is really heavy for me to carry all alone,” you are implying that you want help. You’re not directly asking for help, but you’re hinting at it.
