Rest of the questions would be based on the paragraph.
Coming to the error detection portion there can be a total of 5-10 question based on errors. To perform good in errors, you needs to be good at the parts of speech, adjective, and subject-verb agreement. Some errors may also be based on narration, so, if one doesn’t want to miss out anything then he/she must have the knowledge of this topic also.
The next important topic is Fillers. Generally, double fillers/ sentence/ multiple sentence fillers are asked that are 5 in number. To prepare for the fillers, you should be proficient in the vocabulary as most of the questions are framed from this part only.
