S1. Ans. (b)
Sol. Put ‘been’ after ‘has’ because this part of the sentence is in the perfect progressive tense and its structure is [S+Has/have+been+V-ing+……]

S2. Ans. (b)
Sol. Here use ‘So’ in place of ‘Provided that’ because ‘provided that’ is used to express the condition and here it is the case of result.

S3. Ans. (e)
Sol. No error.

S4. Ans. (b)
Sol. Use ‘of’ in place of ‘about’ because of is always used after an adjective in construction like ‘It+is/am/are+Adj.+of+N/Pron+to+V’.

S5. Ans. (b)
Sol.Call on’ should be used in place of ‘call for’ because call for means to demand something, while call on means to visit.

Sol.One ‘disapproves of’ a habit or custom. This is the correct usage.

Sol.The sentence is in simple present tense; so it should be ‘unless he practises.’

Sol.The sentence is in the past tense; so ‘dared not go’ would be the correct answer. ‘Dare not’ or ‘dared not’ is not followed by ‘to’.

S9.Ans. (d)
Sol.The verb ‘reach’ has to be in past tense, but with ‘when they reached’, it would not be correct to say ‘had departed.’ One correct construction would be ‘Just as they reached the station, the train departed.’ We can also say, ‘Just when they reached the station, the train departed’. But as the second clause here says ‘the train had departed’, the answer can only be (d). But check this out–‘Just as they reached the station, they saw that the train had departed.’

Sol.‘Response’ is here used as a noun, to mean ‘reaction’ or ‘feedback’. But what we need is a verb, ‘responded’.

S11. Ans.(e)
S12. Ans.(c)
S13. Ans.(a)
Sol. Enthusiastic means having or showing intense and eager enjoyment, interest, or approval.

S14. Ans.(d)
S15. Ans.(c)
