    9. ma’am (i )many of his plans failed for earning money quickly
    ho skata ?

    1. Suraj

      see the sentence says that the person had many plans; and all of them failed; means if he had 10 plans all the 10 plans failed;
      now this sentence; many of his plans failed for earning money quickly; gives half meaning; that many of the plans failed but it is possible that some of them did not fail; like from 10 only 8 plans failed.

          if 6/7 are correct its good, in exam only attempt those which you are 100% confident. If out of 5 connectors you are able to do 2-3 it would be enough. iske liye koi short trick nhi h,

  11. Jasveen Singh Makkar

    We are yet to finish this exercise as there still three sentences. ques 1 …why this sentence is wrong?

    1. Suraj

      this sentence is correct; But not given in option..

      1. Jasveen Singh Makkar

        Yet to finish is in the option as a connector

        1. Suraj

          but in connectors we have to start the sentence with the given options

          We are yet…… IF this was one of the option then your sentence would have been right

          1. Jasveen Singh Makkar

            i have solved some questions in which connectors are used in the middle. I thought we are not supposed to change the meaning, tense and subject of the sentence and the position of connector could be anywhere in the sentence.

          2. Suraj

            In exams the instruction was clearly mentioned to start the sentence with the given phrase.. so can neglect that

          3. Jasveen Singh Makkar

            ok thanks..
            but if it we have to use anywhere then the option will follow?

          4. Suraj

            yes then it will follow

          5. Suraj

            do the ques as per the instruction given in the ques: the one you are saying can be like this : http://aspirantszone.com/english-sentence-connectors-set-1/
            so see what the instruct says and then attempt the ques,

      2. PHENOMENAL

        Increase the level sir , thank you

        1. Suraj

          yes these were just for clearing the concepts,, basic questions,, we will provide more

  12. dream girl ;;;;/@ :)

    10/10

  13. Kajal Khanna

    In question 7, can’t we frame it with option 3? Not able to remember the place, where I saw this man before? Will it be wrong?
    Also, question 9, option 1? Many of his plans of earning money quickly failed?
