Directions (11-15): In each of the questions given below a sentence is given in which some parts are given in bold which are grammatically correct. The other three parts of the sentence may or may not be grammatically correct. The sentence is then followed by three alternatives for the parts of the sentence which is not given in bold which may replace the incorrect portion. Choose the alternative(s) which will replace the incorrect part in the sentence to make it grammatically and contextually correct. 

Q11. In the end of the Rigvedic period(A)/, the Aryan society began to(B)/ expand of the northwestern region(C)/ of the Indian subcontinent(D)/, into the western Ganges plain(E). 
 (I) At the end of the Rigvedic period
(II) expand from the northwestern region
(III) onto the western Ganges plain
Only (I)
Only (II)
Both (I)&(II)
Only (III)
All of the above
Solution:
The Correct Sentence is : At the end of the Rigvedic period, the Aryan society began to expand from the northwestern region of the Indian subcontinent, into the western Ganges plain. When we talk about any period of time it should be started with ‘at’ as we are talking about the end of the era so ‘in’ should be replaced by ‘at’. Moreover, expansion of the region has been mentioned. Therefore, there should be ‘expand from’ in place of ‘expand of’.

Q12. Many smaller clans mentioned(A)/ within early literature seems(B)/ to has been(C)/ present across the(D)/ rest of the subcontinent(E). 
(I) within early literature seem
(II) to have been
(III) rest in the subcontinent
Only (I)
Only (II)
Only (III)
Both (I)&(II)
No replacement required
Solution:
The Correct Sentence is: Many smaller clans mentioned within early literature seem to have been present across the rest of the subcontinent. Here, ‘clans’ is a plural form, therefore plural form of verb should be placed .i.e. ‘seem’ instead of ‘seems’. Furthermore, according to the rule, ‘to’ always takes ‘have’ with it so it ‘has’ should be replaced by ‘have’.

Q13. On the same time it(A)/ must be note that overwhelming(B)/ majority of Muslims in(C)/ India of Indian natives(D)/ converted to Islam(E). 
(I) At the same time it
(II) must be noted that overwhelming
(III) India are Indian relatives
Only (III)
Both (I)&(II)
All (I),(II)&(III)
No replacement required
Only (II)
Solution:
The Correct Sentence is: At the same time it must be noted that overwhelming majority of Muslims in India are Indian natives converted to Islam. The same thing which we discussed in the solution of the Q1 is repeated here i.e. ‘at the same time’ should come here. Moreover, ‘must’ is followed by ‘be’, therefore third form of verb .i.e. ‘noted’ should replace ‘note’. Furthermore, the context of the passage says that the majority of the Muslims are the natives are the natives of India, thus ….’India are Indian natives’ is the correct formation.

Q14. The spark that lead to the(A)/ mutiny was the issue of new(B)/ gunpowder cartridges for the(C)/ Enfield rifle, which was insensitive(D)/ to local religious prohibition(E). 
(I) The spark that led to the
(II) Mutiny were the issue of new
(III) Enfield Rifle, which is insensitive
Only (I)
Only (II)
Only (III)
Both (I)&(III)
No correction required
Solution:
The Correct Sentence is: The spark that led to the mutiny was the issue of new gunpowder cartridges for the Enfield rifle, which was insensitive to local religious prohibition. As the sentence is in the past tense, therefore the error is only in the first part .i.e. ‘lead’ should be replaced by ‘led’.

Q15. Bengal witnesses(A)/ an intellectual awakening(B)/ that was in(C)/ some way similar(D)/ to the Renaissance(E). 
(I) Bengal witnessed
(II) of intellectual awakening
(III) that is in
Both (I)&(II)
Both (I)&(III)
Only (II)
Only (III)
All of the above
Solution:
The Correct Sentence is: Bengal witnessed an intellectual awakening that is in some way similar to the Renaissance. The given sentence is the present form of tense but the context of the passage talks about the awakening which is witnessed by the Bengal due to intellectual awakening. Thus, ‘Bengal witnessed’ is the correct usage, and accordingly ‘that in some way similar to’ will come further.
