Solutions

S1. Ans.(b)

Sol. Answer Option B. B and D. In A ‘only’ is misplaced; “we are the only people…” In C, the pronoun ‘them’ is inconsistent (in number) with its antecedent’ a small dampness’; ‘it’ is the correct pronoun.

S2. Ans.(b)

Sol. Answer Option B. B only. In A ‘repeated again’ is redundant. ‘repeated’ is correct. In C, ‘sentenced one year…’ is incorrect; ‘sentenced to one year…’ will make it correct. In D, its is used instead of it’s.

S3. Ans.(d)

Sol. Answer Option D. D only. In A ‘gyre’ needs a determiner before that ‘a gyre’ would be correct. In B ‘ranging from an area…’ would be correct. In ‘as large as’ or ‘larger than’ would correct the part. “larger as” is incorrect.

S4. Ans.(a)

Sol. Answer Option A. A only. In B, The verb ‘sit’ for the subject ‘team’ is incorrect. It should be ‘sits’. In C, who’s has to be replaced with ‘whose’. In D agency’s is incorrect, it should be agencies.

S5. Ans.(d)

Sol. Answer Option D. D only. A should be corrected to ‘one of the …exercises’. B has to include the definite article” the Kurukshetra war”. C should be corrected “another to be…” D has no error.

S6. Ans.(d)

Sol. Answer Option D. D only. A must include the definite article before US dollar-the US dollar. B has two errors: ‘perceived as a monetary unit” and it’s vs its. C is incorrect: since 1920’s is incorrect, it should be corrected to since the 1920s – the is necessary and no apostrophe for the plural of years.

S7. Ans.(a)

Sol. Answer Option A. A and B are correct. The verb in C must be “there have been…” In D, the correct idiom would be “picked up pace”.

S8. Ans.(b)

Sol. Answer Option B. B only. Sentence A uses effluent (flowing out) instead of affluent (wealthy). B is correct – the collective noun the elite is considered as individuals, hence the plural verb is correct. C is not punctuated at all – it requires commas this way: “Vishakha Doshi, Director, Marketing & Communication, Entrack, distributors for Montblanc India says that people identify with the core values of such legends.” D is incorrect in “each of the …… instrument.” It should be “each of the … instruments.”

S9. Ans.(d)

Sol. Answer Option D. All are incorrect. A is incorrect in NRIs does not; it should be NRIs do not… B is incorrect as the preposition is missing “on employment etc… is correct, but on cannot be applied to ‘or on any other purpose” hence a new preposition needs to be inserted. E.g., “for any other purpose”. C also misses the preposition – other than for/on employment will be correct. D is incorrect “on any other purpose” – “for any other purpose” would be correct.

S10. Ans.(a)

Sol. Answer Option A. A only. In B, the preposition ‘on’ is missing after ‘but also’ giving rise to faulty parallelism. C has the incorrect preposition “invest on’ rather than ‘invest in’. In D, the farmer is singular hence the pronoun they is inconsistent with it.

S11. Ans.(b)

Sol. Answer Option B. C and D. There are no errors in C and D. The past participle of forget is both forgot and forgotten. Hence D is correct. A is wrong because of its – we require it’s. B has a spelling error ‘dispirited’ is the correct spelling – single ‘s’.

S12. Ans.(b)

Sol. Answer Option B. All are incorrect. A is incorrect in Just like – it should be “just as America’s…”. B is incorrect as “India’s needs an apostrophe. C is incorrect as it should read “in the middle of the India Flag”. D is incorrect as it should read: “… how much it is diminished by…”

S13. Ans.(a)
