Solutions

S1. Ans. (b)
Sol. Here, the error lies in part (B) of the given sentence. Not only will be used before dance because but also is used before sing. Not only-but also/ either-or/ neither-nor etc. are used to connect two subject/objects/verbs/gerunds etc. Hence, option (b) is the right answer choice.

S2. Ans. (b)
Sol. The error lies in part (B). WERE will be used before Sent. Hence, option (b) is the right answer choice.

S3. Ans. (c)
Sol. The error lies in part (C) of the sentence. ‘had I been’ will be replaced by ‘I had been’ because the given sentence is in indirect narration. In indirect narration, we do not use interrogative sentence but assertive sentence (subject+verb) is used. Hence, option (c) is the right answer choice.

S4. Ans. (b)
Sol. The error lies in part (B) of the sentence. ‘to take will be replaced by ‘on taking, because the standard format is ‘insist+on+object’ OR ‘insist+on+V(ing)’. Hence, option (b) is the right answer choice.

S5. Ans. (b)
Sol. The error lies in part (B) of the sentence. ‘Was taken’ will be replaced by ‘took’ as in active voice, subject+verb is used while in passive voice, subject+to be+V3 is used. Hence, option (b) is the right answer choice.

S6. Ans. (b)
Sol. The error lies in part (B). ‘more’ will be used instead of ‘much’ because before adjective of comparative degree is used before ‘than’. While for ‘many or much’, comparative degree is ‘more’ and superlative degree is ‘most’. Hence, option (b) is the right answer choice.

S7. Ans. (b)
Sol. The error lies in part (B) of the sentence. ‘The’ will be used before ‘issue’ because ‘issue’ is definite here. Hence, option (b) is the right answer choice.

S8. Ans. (c)
Sol. The error lies in part (C) of the sentence. ‘Withdrew’ will be replaced by ‘withdraw’ because ‘must’ is a model auxiliary that always takes first form of verb with it. Hence, option (c) is the right answer choice.

S9. Ans. (c)
Sol. The error lies in part (C) of the sentence. ‘Serve’ will be replaced by‘Serves’ as ‘Every portion’ is a singular subject.
Singular verb is used with singular subject. Hence, option (c) is the right answer choice.

S10. Ans. (a)
Sol. The error lies in part (A) of the sentence. ‘Given off’ will be replaced by ‘Given up’ as it means to leave something or a habit. ‘Given off’ means ‘to send out as a branch’ or ‘emit an unpleasant smell’. Hence, option (a) is the right answer choice.

S11. Ans. (c)
Sol. The error lies in part (C) of the sentence. ‘Carefully’ will replace ‘careful’ because careful is an adjective while carefully is an adverb. Hence, option (c) is the right answer choice.

S12. Ans. (c)
Sol. The error lies in part (C) of the sentence. ‘On’ will replace ‘with’ because with ‘emphasis’ preposition ‘on’ is used. Hence, option (c) is the right answer choice.

S13. Ans. (b)
Sol. In the second part of the sentence “I” must be replaced with “me” because of the incorrect usage of the preposition. All other options are correct. So option (B) is the correct choice.

S14. Ans. (b)
Sol. In the third part of the sentence “whom” must be replaced by “who” as Who is a subjective-case pronoun, meaning it functions as a subject in a sentence, and whom is an objective-case pronoun, meaning it functions as an object in a sentence. So option(b) is correct.

S15. Ans. (b)
Sol. In the second part of the sentence “than” must be replaced with “from” because different is followed with “from”. All other parts of the sentence are correct. So option (b) is correct.
