(c)Only (III) is correct

(d)Both (I) and (III) are correct

(e)No correction required

Answer & Explanation
Ans. a

Exp. “releasing them in a controlled manner” is the correct phrase that should replace “release them in a controlled mannerto make the sentence grammatically correct. It is to be noted that the subject “Accepting our emotions…” is connecting with the other one with the help of the conjunction “and”; thus, as the rule implies, both the expression must be in the same form i.e. “release” should be replaced by “releasing”. Moreover, the word “controlled” signifies an adjective in this case. Hence among the given options, (a) is the correct choice.

Answer & Explanation
Ans. c

Exp. Both the expressions “may yield higher profit to the investors” and “can yield higher profit to the investors” are the correct usage in the context of adding meaning to the sentence. It is to be noted that the subject “The present pattern …” suggests that the sentence is referring towards some present events; thus, the use of the verb “had yielded” is incorrectly matched with the subject-verb agreement. The correct verb in this case should be “may yield” or “can yield” as the pattern and meaning of the sentence expresses the possibility of yielding higher profit to the investors. Hence option (c) is the correct choice.
