Solutions

S1. Ans. (d)

Sol. Among the given options, sentences (b) and (c) are grammatically and contextually incorrect. Sentence (a) is contextually different and structurally incorrect. It is not inferring the same meaning as per the demand of the question. Hence only option (d) forms the correct sentence which follows the sentences given in the question both grammatically and contextually.

S2. Ans. (b)

Sol. Among the given options, sentences (a) and (c) are grammatically and contextually incorrect. Sentence (d) is contextually different and structurally incorrect. It is not inferring the same meaning as per the demand of the question. Hence only option (b) forms the correct sentence which follows the sentences given in the question both grammatically and contextually.

S3. Ans. (a)

Sol. Among the given options, sentences (b) and (c) are grammatically and contextually incorrect. Sentence (d) is contextually different and structurally incorrect. It is not inferring the same meaning as per the demand of the question. Hence only option (a) forms the correct sentence which follows the sentences given in the question both grammatically and contextually.

S4. Ans. (c)

Sol. Among the given options, sentences (a) and (d) are grammatically and contextually incorrect. Sentence (b) is contextually different and structurally incorrect. It is not inferring the same meaning as per the demand of the question. Hence only option (c) forms the correct sentence which follows the sentences given in the question both grammatically and contextually.

S5. Ans. (a)

Sol. Among the given options, sentences (b) and (c) are grammatically and contextually incorrect. Sentence (d) is contextually different and structurally incorrect. It is not inferring the same meaning as per the demand of the question. Hence only option (a) forms the correct sentence which follows the sentences given in the question both grammatically and contextually.

S6. Ans. (d)

Sol. The use of the preposition ‘for’ is incorrect in the context of the sentence. The correct preposition to be used is ‘along with’.

Hence, the correct answer is option (d).

S7. Ans. (a)

Sol. The tense of the preceding sentence suggests that the tense of the sentence containing (107) would be present, present perfect continuous. Among the options, option (a) correctly satisfies the grammatical and contextual requirement of the sentence and would be the correct answer.

S8. Ans. (b)

Sol. The tense of the preceding sentence in the preceding paragraph suggests that the tense of the sentence would be present tense. The subject of the subject ‘at least 100 anganwadis in Alappuzha and Pathanamthitta districts’ is plural. Among the options, option (b) correctly satisfies the grammatical and contextual requirement of the sentence. Hence, the correct answer is option (b).

S9. Ans. (c)

Sol. The phrase ‘for putting the smile back on the faces of at least a few children’ is adding information to the verb ‘trying’. The use of the prepositional phrase ‘for putting’ is wrong. To-infinitive would be used in place of the prepositional phrase. Among the options, options (a), (b) and (d) are prepositional-phrase and hence, incorrect. But option (c) would make a grammatically correct and contextually meaningful sentence. Hence, option (c) is the correct answer.

S10. Ans. (e)

Sol. The given sentence is grammatically and contextually correct. The correct sentence is option (e).

S11. 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. Hence, option (c) is the most suitable answer choice.

S12. 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. Hence, option (a) is the most suitable answer choice.

S13. 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. Hence, option (c) is the most suitable answer choice.

S14. Ans. (d)

Sol. The sentence can be corrected by replacing the phrases (A) and (B) by phrases (I) and (II). Since all the given combinations are incorrect, option (d) becomes the most viable answer choice.

S15. 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. Therefore, the most suitable answer choice is option (e).
