Solutions

S1. Ans.(d)

Sol. All the expressions provided in the options possess errors. In the first expression, there is prepositional error i.e., in place of ‘ravaged in’’ it should be ‘ravaged through’ which is used to depict the destruction as experienced by the rural Bengal and which can be depicted from the example of poor priest’s life. In case of second expression, it should be ‘climb up the stair’ instead of ‘step up the ladder’ which means going places or becoming famous. In case of third expression, give will be replaced by gave as the sentence is in past tense. Therefore, all the expressions contain errors.

S2. Ans.(d)

Sol. Of all the expressions provided, expressions given in option (b) and option (c) contain errors. In case of option (b) of should be replaced with off. The correct expression should be cut off which means the act of ending or stopping something. Here it is depicting that the patients are rendered isolated from the vital medications while the efforts to modulate opioid prescribing are on. In case of the expression provided in option(c), in place of ‘to’ it should be ‘of’ which is used to depict the relation or connection with something.

S3. Ans.(d)

Sol. Out of all the expressions, option(d) contains an error. In this expression the usage of preposition to is incorrect and hence it should be replaced with for. ‘For’ is used to indicate the use of something whereas ‘to’ is used to indicate the place, person, or thing that someone or something moves toward, or the direction of something or to depict a time interval.  Hence, option (d) is the most suitable choice.

S4. Ans. (d)

Sol. Of all the options provided, options (a) & (b) has an error. In case of expression provided in option (a), ‘flow’ should be replaced with verb ‘flows’. It is to be noted that the stress is laid on additional restriction in the plethora of restrictions already existing. Hence, it should take plural verb ‘flow’ after it. In case of expression provided in option (b), ‘Even though’ is not fitting in the context of the sentence and therefore to make the sentence meaningful  and grammatical correct, it should be replaced with ‘Since’to make it contextually correct. As ‘since’shows the already existing situation. ‘Even though’ means ‘despite the fact’ which do not fit in the context of the sentence and hence it needs improvement.

S5. Ans.(d)

Sol. Of all the expressions provided in the options, (b) and (c) have errors in it. In case of option (b) it should be responsible in place of responsive. Responsible means dutiful or abiding whereas responsive means sensitive to a stimulus, In the expression provided in option (c), ‘dedicate’ will take reflexive pronoun after it due to lack of subject therefore it should be ‘dedicate itself’. Hence, option (c) is the most viable choice.

S6. Ans. (b)

Sol. There is a grammatical error in the third part of the sentence; there is an issue of subject-verb agreement. The verb “is” should be replaced by its plural “are” to make the sentence grammatically correct as the subject of the verb is plural [home excursions]. The other two parts are grammatically feasible. Hence option (b) is the correct choice.

S7. Ans. (b)

Sol. There is a grammatical error in the second part of the sentence. It is to be noted that the verb [concluded] in the highlighted part of the sentence indicates that the event [‘informal’ summit meeting] held in the past thus, the sentence should be in the past tense. Therefore, the helping verb in the second part of the sentence “is” should be replaced by “was” to make the sentence in accord with the appropriate grammatical syntax of the sentence. Hence, option (b) becomes the most suitable answer choice.

S8. Ans. (a)

Sol. Expression (I) and (II) are correct and do not require any correction. While expression (III) comprises, a grammatical error making the sentence incorrect. It is to be noted that “not only…but also” is a correlative conjunction which is used to connect two clauses. Moreover, while using not only . . . but also in a sentence, parallelism should be the goal. It means that the words following both parts of this correlative conjunction (i.e., not only and but also) should belong to the same parts of speech. Moreover, contextually the noun ‘prevention’ should have been used for both the clauses of “not only…but also”. Therefore, the correct phrase should have been […because prevention was not only beneficial for a person but also for his or her family and society]. Hence, option (a) is the correct choice.

S9. Ans. (d)

Sol. Expression (I) and (II) do not comply with the grammatical syntax of the syntax. To make expression (I) correct replace the determiner “that” with the relative pronoun “what” as ‘that’ is used to refer a specific thing previously mentioned, known, or understood while; ‘what’ is used for the thing or things that are used in specifying something. Moreover, expression (II) contains a contextual error as the use of the adjectives “proper” and “right” together is redundant. Therefore, omitting ‘right’ from the sentence makes it coherent and grammatically viable. Hence, option (d) becomes the most feasible answer choice.

S10. Ans. (b)

Sol. The error lies in the first part of the sentence. To make the sentence in accord with the grammatical syntax of the sentence ‘had’ should be added after ‘no sooner’.It is to be noted that in all the cases where the sentence begins with ‘no sooner’, helping verb takes place before the subject of the sentence; Ex. No sooner had he reached the office than his friend arrived. Thus, the correct phrase of the sentence should be “No sooner had the summit”. Hence, option (b) becomes the most suitable answer choice.

S11. Ans. (b)

Sol. Only  B-F can make a contextually correct and grammatically meaningful sentence.

Sentence thus formed is :

B-F: Bihar Deputy Chief Minister may have tried to quieten the demand by some party colleagues for a rethink on seat distribution.

S12. Ans. (d)

Sol. Only C-D can make a contextually correct and grammatically meaningful sentence.

Sentence thus formed is :

C-D: The space under the central dome of the mosque is believed to be where Lord Ram was born.

S13. Ans. (b)

Sol. Only B-F can make a contextually correct and grammatically meaningful sentence.

Sentence thus formed is:

B-F: I have just instructed the Secretary of the Treasury to substantially increase sanctions on the country of Iran.

S14. Ans. (d)

Sol. only C-D can make a contextually correct and grammatically meaningful sentence.

Sentence thus formed is

C-D: Living costs and rising unemployment are other issues that will likely dominate poll rhetoric, observers note.

S15. Ans. (c)

Sol. All A-E , B-F and C-D can make a contextually correct and grammatically meaningful sentences.

Sentences thus formed are :

B-F: Mr. Trump recently dispatched Mr. O’Brien to Sweden for the court hearing of U.S. rapper A$AP Rocky, who was later convicted for assault.
