(a) A.

(b) B.

(c) C.

(d) D.

(e) No error

Answer & Explanation
Ans. c

Exp In the given statement, error lies in part (C). In it usage of ‘was’ is incorrect because given sentence is combination of two sentences, ‘The Home Minister laid….’ and ‘The Home Minister hoped…’. So, the complete sentence would be ‘The Home Minister laid… and hoped….’ Hence, the correct answer choice would be option (c).

(a) A.

(b) B.

(c) C.

(d) D.

(e) No error

Answer & Explanation
Ans. d

Exp. Here, the error lies in part (D) of the statement where ‘so’ will be replaced with ‘too’. Both ‘too’ and ‘so’ denote ‘very’ but the correct structure is ‘too+adjective+to’ and ‘so+adjective+that+……’. Hence, option (d) is the most suitable answer choice

(b) B.

(c) C.

(d) D.

(e) No error

Answer & Explanation
Ans. a

Exp. The error lies in part (A) of the given statement, where, “fled away” will be replaced with “fled”. Using of “away” with “Fled” which means “run away from a place or situation of danger”, makes the sentence superfluous. Hence, option (a) is the most suitable answer choice

(e) No error

Answer & Explanation
Ans. c

Exp. The error lies in part (C) of the statement where ‘introduce’ will be replaced with ‘introducing’. There are certain phrasal words including ‘with a view to’ which are followed by ‘V+ing’. Therefore, these are the exception cases where we use ‘ing’ form of verb after ‘to’. Hence, option (c) is the most suitable answer choice
