‘One of the’ is followed by superlative degree. So, ‘worse’ should be replaced by ‘worst’.

e.g. He is one of the worst dancers that I have seen so far.


‘Companies’ is a plural subject therefore it should take a plural possessive. Hence, ‘its’ should be followed by ‘their’.

e.g. Organisations need to improve their ways of working.


‘An lying’ is a wrong expression. The correct expression is ‘a lying’ to be used here.

e.g. A lying man can’t be trusted.

e.g. She has a better attitude than her brother.


The sentence has future prospects. So, the expression should read out ‘it will be’.

e.g. With the current advancement in tech. It will be beneficial to upgrade use of technology.


No error.


‘started, mandate’ is the correct use.

Mandate means an official order or commission to do something.


‘from, to’ fits the sentence appropriately where ‘from’ is used for a starting point and ‘to’ is used to indicate the direction of something.


‘confident, post’ is the correct use.


‘observed, only’ is the correct use.


‘gearing, scheduled’ is the correct use.
