Keep Practicing. All the best.

Directions (1-5): Read each sentence to find out whether there is any grammatical error in it. The error, if any, will be one part of the sentence. The number of that part is the answer. If there is no error, the answer is (E). (ignore the errors of punctuation, if any.) 

Q1. He has been working on (A)/ the problem from a long time (B)/ but is still not (C)/ able to solve it. (D)/

No Error
The correct preposition is to be used. We work on something ‘for’ some time.
Q2. The detective says that (A)/ there is no chance for (B)/ finding the person (C)/ who wrote these letters. (D)/
No Error
‘Of’ is the correct preposition; it should replace ‘for’.
Q3. Rekha was trying for admission (A)/ in the Engineering College (B)/ even though her parents wanted (C)/ her to take up medicine. (D)/

No Error
No error.
Q4. He fixed a metal ladder (A)/ for the wall below his window (B)/ so as to be able to (C)/ escape if there was a fire. (D)/
No Error
A ladder is fixed ‘to’ the wall, not ‘for’ it. If instead of ‘fixed’, the word used is ‘placed’, the preposition would be ‘against’.
Q5. Several prominent figures (A)/ involved in the scandal (B)/ are required to appear (C)/ to the investigation committee. (D)/

No Error
One appears ‘before’ an investigation committee, not ‘to’ it.
Directions (6-10): In each of these questions, there are two blanks indicating that something has been omitted. There are five alternatives given. Choose the one that best fits the meaning of the sentence or sentences as a whole. 

Q6. When you are living with your ………… values and principles, you can be straightforward, honest and …………
core, upfront

inherited, distinct
innate, durable
cultural, perceptive
inborn, vehement
‘Inborn’ means ‘innate’ or ‘inherent’. The meaning conveyed by the sentence is, ‘when you are living with values that come from within you then you can be open, honest ad vehement’ (‘vehement’ meaning ‘marked by great energy or vigour’). In option (a), ‘core’ means ‘candid’ (frank). Option (e) is better suited to the given statement.
Q7. In the role of a counselor, you are an authoritative figure whose objective is to …………. attentively and sensitively to employees who ……….. you with their feelings.
project, focus
manage, direct
listen, trust
concentrate, believe
consider, explain
Only option (c) will suit the two blanks. ‘Concentrate’ should be followed by ‘upon’ and not ‘to’; consider’ (v. transitive) should be followed by a noun or pronoun (consider what or whom?)
Q8. If a junior executive neglects his professional development and ………… education, he can easily and quickly become obsolete in a world changing at ………….. rates.
management, voluminous
higher, vulnerable
better, supreme
continuing, dizzying
value, profound
‘Continuing’ here means ‘ongoing’; dizzying refers to ‘a very fast speed’ or ‘rapidly’.
Q9. Harassment is just plain ………… . There is never a valid reason or a good ……….. for it.

wrong, excuse
murder, command
falsehood, remedy
killing, magic
offence, strategy
It is to be noted that ‘harassment’ cannot be called anything but a plain ‘wrong’; it is not ‘murder’, ‘killing’, ‘falsehood’ or an ‘offence’. So it should be clear that option (a) is the answer at the first glance. But even where the second blank is concerned, only ‘excuse’ will fit it well.
Q10. Man is …………. . He likes to know how things work. The search for understanding is ………… in its own right.
evolving, prophetic
inquisitive, legitimate
appreciative, fundamental
curious, philosophical
social, judgemental
Only ‘inquisitive’ and ‘curious’ will fit the first blank owing to the sentence that follows–‘He likes to know how things work.’ But only ‘legitimate’ of option (b) will suit the second blank, not ‘philosophical’ of option (d).
Directions (11-15): In the following questions, a sentence has been given with some of its parts in bold. To make the sentence grammatically correct, you have to replace the bold part with the correct alternative given below. If the sentence is correct as it is, give (E) as you answer (ie No correction required). 

Q11. If he had been working for a private firm and disowned responsibility for the custody of the papers, not only he have been fired but would have also faced a case for criminal breach of trust.

he has been fired
he had fired
he would have been fired
he had been fired
No correction required
Correct use is 'he would have been fired' as it makes the sentence structure grammatically correct.
Q12. Quite simply, the man is the worst head of government independent India has seen.

the person is the bad
the people is the better
the citizen is the worst
the male is the worst
No correction required
No correction required
Q13. Food bill or Land bill, nothing is going to curb the people’s anger in this season.
anger in this weather
anger in this environment
anger in this climate
anger in this situation
No correction required
Correct use is 'anger in this situation'
Q14. The TRAI has told broadcasters to follow the rule which said no more than 10 minutes of advertisement per hour programme content.
advertising per hour of
advertisement every hour
advertising single hour
advertisement over
No correction required
Replace 'advertisement per hour' with ' advertising per hour of'
Q15. In her own political constituency just about 600 km away from New Delhi-the two newly passed bills seems Latin or Greek to the people.

seem Greek
seems Greek and Latin
No correction required
