Directions (1-5): The sentences given below are divided into five parts. One of the part is given in bold which is grammatically and contextually correct. Identify the combination of two parts that consists of grammatical or contextual error in them. If no such error is there mark option (e) i.e., “No error” as the answer.

  1. At these stage that PNB (A)/ must have realized that it have (B)/ already created a (C)/contingent liability (D)/ of Rs 11,400 crores. (E)

(a) D-E

(b) A-B

(c) A-E

(d) B-D

(e) No error

Answer & Explanation
Ans. b

Exp. The combination of two parts of the sentence where the error lies is option (b) i.e., parts (A) and (B). It is to be noted that in part (A) “at these stage” should get replaced with “at this stage”. “at this stage” is an idiom which means at the current point in some event or situation; currently. In part (B), in order to adhere to the syntax of past perfect tense of the sentence use ‘had’ and the past participle of a verb in one part of the sentence. Here, in the bold part the verb “created” is in its past participle form thus, replace “have” with “had”. Therefore, option (b) is the correct choice.

  1. To begin with, the King advocates (A)/a moderate brand of Islam, who assumes (B)/ critical significance against a backdrop (C)/ of increasing radicalisation and terror attacks (D)/ perpetrated by fundamentalists. (E)

(a) D-E

(b) D-B

(c) B-E

(d) B-C

(e) No error

Answer & Explanation
Ans. d

Exp. The error lies in option (d) i.e., parts (B) and (C) of the sentence. In order to make part (B) correct replace ‘who’ with ‘which’ as the relative pronoun ‘who’ is used to refer people while ‘which’ is used to refer a thing; or a clause referring to a whole sentence. Moreover, in part (C) replace the article ‘a’ with ‘the’ as in the part (D) of the sentence a specific backdrop has been mentioned “of increasing radicalisation and terror attacks”. Thus, the correct article required is “the”. Therefore, option (d) is the most suitable answer choice.

  1. At the time, more than 80% (A)/ of China’s population was (B)/focused on agriculture and (C)/ life expectancy was few (D)/ months shy from 66 years. (E)

(a) D-E

(b) D-B

(c) B-E

(d) B-C

(e) No error

Answer & Explanation
Ans. a

Exp. The error lies in part (D) and (E) of the sentence. In part (D) instead of ‘few’, ‘a few’ will provide more appropriate context to the sentence as the difference in meaning of ‘few’ and ‘a few’ is subtle, but usually few puts a little more attention on the negative— that there is not a large number (of people or things) while; A few puts a little more attention on the positive—that there is a small number (of people or things). In part (E) there is an idiomatic error. The idiom “just shy of” means an amount if it’s just short of that amount. Thus, to make the sentence grammatically and contextually correct replace ‘from’ by ‘of’. Therefore, option (a) is the most viable choice.

  1. It is now worth asking how (A)/BJP is going to play out in near future (B)/ in the wake of the so-called Nirav Modiscam, (C)/ and what ramifications they might have (D)/for India’s political and institutional life. (E)

(a) B-E




(e)No error

Answer & Explanation
Ans. b

Exp. In part (B), as we are talking about the specific time in future thus “the” needs to be added before “near future”. In part (d), “they” is the incorrect pronoun that has been used to refer “BJP”, instead “it” should be used. Therefore, option (b) becomes the most suitable choice.

  1. The image of wealthy(A)/ allegedly scooting off to foreign lands (B)/ with their loot when the poor(C)/ were made to stand in line (D)/ for their own money, is a damaging one. (E)




(e) No error

Answer & Explanation
Ans. d

Exp. In part (A), Wealthy is an adjective that cannot be the object of a preposition and to refer all wealthy people “the wealthy” should be used.

In part (C), “when” should be replaced with “while” because here two events are described which are happening at the same time. Hence, option (d) is the most suitable answer choice.
