      1. Srishti

        Verb of attribution requires relatives like “that” or “which”. So 9 is correct in its given form.

        1. Tapan

          what is the right answer of question 9 ? i do not happy with E

          1. Srishti

            I am not happy with E either.
            But that’s life, dude! ?

          2. Tapan

            in question no 9 why option no 1 is not correct? please explain. and i am a MAN not dude.

          3. Srishti

            Read the sentence carefully. It has “has” as the helping verb. If the clause is followed by relatives , only and only then it would be apt to use is/are.

            Rescinded is a verb of attribution hence use of which/that is incorrect.

            And, Google defines DUDE = MAN, so get a confirmation!

            Hope it helps!

          4. Tapan

            I am not the type of man who can be called Dude, (see Wiki), I am a Man like the Warrior Karna.
            thanks for the reply and clear explanation. Have a nice day.

      In Q4
      Rule of present progressive:- present progressive has been used to indicate actions that started at some point of time before now, continuing at present And will end at some point of time after now

      When you write-off sth, you eliminate an item from account.

      1. %%%

        mam 4th me
        A) has been resulting in………….ye bhi to aa skta h na phir
        why opt D) is resulting in

        1. Srishti

          Present perfect continuous is used when the time is indefinite. Here we know when the cycle has started and is continuing after every month.

          Hope it helps! 🙂

    1. Srishti

      resemblance = resemblances
      Similar = similars

      Likewise semblance is correct usage!
