Eminent means noted for position, rank or achievement.

Imminent means soon to happen or take place.

Ans.2. (e)

It seems that the word unsparing is a wrong use here. But, unsparing means severe or merciless and it is appropriate in the context of the sentence. As there is no error in the given sentence, so the answer is (e).

Ans.3. (b)

Change ‘five-years’ to ‘five-year’ as hyphenated noun can never be used in plural form.


 There is no error in the statement.


 Replace ‘disputes now a days because of’ by ‘disputes now a days because’. It is superfluous to use preposition ‘of’ as subordinate clause follows.


 As per the rules of tag; the tag will be negative if statement is positive. Also, tense will be according to statement.


  To show a condition that is of future, we use simple present in one clause and simple future in the other. So ‘will reach’ is to be written as ‘reach’ only.


  ‘To bring out’ is a phrase that means ‘to reveal something’. So, ‘has brought out’ is the correct choice.


  What is evident in present should be written in simple present tense. So, ‘is likely’ is the correct usage.


  An adverb should be used to qualify the verb ‘increased’. So, ‘substantially’ is correct to be used.
