Directions (1-5): In the following paragraph, there is a set of four highlighted words against each number indicated in bold in the beginning of the sentences. One of the given words in each set may or may not fit into the statement. Choose the word which is not suitable in the context of the paragraph. If all the four words are correct and feasible, choose (e) i.e. “No error” as your answer.

(1) The Russian doping scandal continues by cast a long shadow over international sport as the 2018 Winter Olympics begin in PyeongChang, South Korea, on February 9. (2) In December, the International Olympic Committee banned Russia from winning in the Games following investigation into an alleged state-sponsored doping programme at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. (3) The dissension to ban Russia came after the IOC’s Disciplinary Commission, headed by former president of the Swiss Confederation Samuel Schmid, confirmed “systemic manipulation of the anti-doping rules and system in Russia”. (4) The IOC had stated, along with, that clean Russian athletes would be allowed to compete as neutrals and last month invited 169 of them — each to be known as Olympic Athlete from Russia (OAR) — to participate in the PyeongChang Games. (5) The announcement did not go down well outside Russia, even though the IOC declared that “more than 80%” of those athletes had not competed in Sochi and had been carefully vetted.

  1. (a) scandal

(b) by

(c) shadow

(d) begin

(e) no error

Answer & Explanation
Ans. b

Exp. Option (b) is the correct choice. Except for option (b) “by” all the words completely fit into the paragraph to make it grammatically and meaningfully correct. It is to be noted that the usage of preposition “by” is incorrect. An infinitive will almost always begin with “to” followed by the simple form of the verb, like this: To + Verb = Infinitive. Therefore, before the base form of the verb “cast” “to” should be added to make the sentence grammatically correct.

 

  1. (a) banned

(b) wining

(c) investigation

(d) doping

(e) no error

Answer & Explanation
Ans. b

Exp. Option (b) is the correct choice. All the words except for “winning” provides a coherent meaning to the sentence. Here, the paragraph is describing about the controversy of doping by Russian players in the Olympics. Therefore, the correct word required here is “competing” or “participating” as the International Olympic Committee banned the country from competing in the games. Moreover, in the later part of the paragraph it is mentioned that the “clean Russian athletes would be allowed to compete as neutrals”. This statement indicates that previously the athletes were banned to compete and this restriction was later removed. This rationale helps to identify option (b) as the error in the given paragraph.

 

  1. (a) dissension

(b) headed

(c) confirmed

(d) manipulation

(e) no error

Answer & Explanation
Ans. a

Exp. Option (a) is the correct choice. “dissension” is a noun which means disagreement that leads to discord. However, the paragraph is stating about the verdict that the Russian athletes would no longer be allowed to compete in 2018 winter Olympics. Therefore, the correct word required has to “decision” or something similar in meaning. All the other words help to make the sentence grammatically and meaningfully correct. “manipulation” is a noun which means the action of manipulating something in a skillful manner.

  1. (a) along with

(b) neutrals

(c) known

(d) participate

(e) no error

Answer & Explanation
Ans. a

Exp. Option (a) is the correct choice as here, the usage of phrasal conjunction “along with” is incorrect. “along with” is used to give the reference of a company with or at the same time as; accompanying; together with. Thus, it doesn’t signify the meaning of the sentence correctly. The correct conjunction to be used here is “however”. “However” can be used to introduce a statement that contrasts with or seems to contradict something that has been said previously or in whatever way; regardless of how.

Here it is mentioned to provide the meaning of “regardless of how”. All the other words are apt in the context of the paragraph. “neutrals” means an impartial or unbiased state or person. Hence, the correct option which has the error is option (a).

  1. (a) announcement

(b) outside

(c) athletes

(d) vetted

(e) no error

Answer & Explanation
Ans. e

Exp. Option (e) is the correct choice. The sentence is contextually and grammatically correct. All the given words are making the paragraph logical and comprehensible. “vetted” is a verb which means to make a careful and critical examination of (something).

Directions (6-10): In each of the questions given below a sentence is written in four different ways. Find the sentence which is grammatically incorrect. If all the sentences are correct choose option (e) as your choice.
