(b)Only (II)

(c)Both (I) and (III)

(d)All (I), (II) and (III)

(e)No correction required

Answer & Explanation
Ans. c

Exp. Read the expression given in the sentence carefully; the expression ends with “may rise by”. Thus, the use of the preposition “by” at the end makes it grammatically incorrect as the two prepositions cannot be used simultaneously [“by” and “to”]. Among the given alternatives, the (I) and (III) expressions can be used as a replacement to the highlighted expression. It is to be noted that the two expressions give the similar meaning to the sentence without altering its contextual and grammatical structure. Hence option (c) is the correct choice.

(a)Only (I)

(b)Only (II)

(c)Both (I) and (II)

(d)Both (II) and (III)

(e)No correction required

Answer & Explanation
Ans. a

Exp. Read the complete sentence carefully; the subject i.e., “The Economic Survey” is in singular and thus the use of the plural verb “have” is incorrect. Moreover, it is to be noted that the sentence mentions specifically that the survey was tabled on January 29 and thus the use of the present form of verb will make the sentence grammatically incorrect. Among the given alternatives, only the first expression provides the exact replacement to the highlighted expression. It does follow the correct structure to make the sentence grammatically and contextually correct. Hence option (a) is the correct choice.

 

  1. India can surely become the world’s skill capital but not with what they are trying to do now.

(c)Both (I) and (II)

(d)Both (II) and (III)

(e)No correction required

Answer & Explanation
Ans. c

Exp. Read the sentence carefully; the subject is singular [India] and thus we cannot use the plural determiner for the same [they].  Among the given options, both the first and the second expressions can replace the highlighted phrase to form a meaningful sentence respectively. The sentences so formed will be both grammatically correct and contextually meaningful. Hence option (c) is the correct choice.

(c)Both (II) and (III)

(d)Both (I) and (III)

(e)No correction required

Answer & Explanation
Ans. b

Exp. There is a prepositional error in the highlighted expression. The most correct expression that can replace the existing one is option (b) i.e., “in the ever-evolving world of fashion”. This makes the sentence both grammatically and contextually correct. Hence option (b) is the correct choice.
