solutions

S1. Ans. (b)

Sol. Only sentence (I) is grammatically incorrect. In order to correct the sentence, replace “this incident” by “those incidents” as phrases like “one of”, “either of”, “neither of”, “every one of” etc. take plural noun or pronoun with them to frame a precise grammatical structure for the sentence.  Sentence (II) and (III) are grammatically correct. Hence, option (b) is the most suitable answer choice.

S2. Ans. (a)

Sol. Sentences (II) and (III) are grammatically incorrect. It is to be noted in sentence (II) who should be used to refer to the subject of a sentence; while Whom should be used to refer to the object of a verb or preposition. Therefore, to correct sentence (II), replace “who” by “whom” as the pronoun is required to refer the object “Rajapaksa”. Moreover, in sentence (III) the correct phrase should be “No sooner did we get the news…” as in the cases, where a sentence begins with “no sooner”, the auxiliary verb is placed before the subject. Sentence (I) is grammatically correct. Hence, option (a) is the most suitable answer choice.

S3. Ans. (c)

Sol. Sentence (III) is grammatically incorrect. In this sentence, the verb you’re considering is inside a relative clause—“that have made a mark in my life.” It’s called relative clauses because it begins with one of the relative pronouns: “that.” “That” is the subject of the relative clause, and it takes its number from the plural noun to which it refers. In this case, that word is “novels,” so you use a plural verb: “one of the novels that have made a mark” is the correct sentence. Sentences (I) and (II) are grammatically and contextually viable. Hence, option (c) is the most suitable answer choice.

S4. Ans. (e)

Sol. All the given sentences are grammatically and contextually meaningful.  It is to be noted that when only after, only if, only in this way etc. are placed at the beginning of the sentence for rhetorical effect, the subject and auxiliary are inverted.  We use inversion in several different situations in English. Inversion just means putting the verb before the subject. Since, all the three sentences are devoid of any grammatical errors, option (e) becomes the most suitable answer choice.

S5. Ans. (c)

Sol. Sentence (II) and (III) contain errors in them. In sentence (II) replace the clause “we always honor our veterans” by “we should always honor our veterans”, In addition to this, the conjunction lest has a negative meaning itself therefore, it should not be used with not. The only auxiliary verb that can follow lest is “should”. Next, in sentence (III), “lesser” should be replaced by “fewer” as fewer means “not as many.” We use fewer with countable nouns like cookies; while less means “not as much.” We use less with uncountable nouns like milk. Since, only sentence (I) is grammatically and contextually correct, option (c) becomes the most suitable answer choice.
