Directions (1-4): In each of the following questions, five options are given and you have to choose the one which has some or any grammatical error in it. In the questions where the fifth option is “all are correct” and all the given four options are correct choose option (E) as your choice.

    The road was rough but not limited to four- wheel drive vehicles like the mountain Jeep roads to the south.
    All are correct
    Option C
    Among the given sentences, sentence (C) is incorrect since preposition “At” is used in reference to specific times on the clock or points of time in the day. Therefore, “at dawn” should be used to make the sentence grammatically and contextually correct. Hence, option (c) is the most viable answer choice.

     

  2. Half the population of the planet had been decimated by famine and war.
    There was prejudice in the workplace culminating in her resignation a year ago.
    Everyone was glued to the TV set as the election results came out.
    The museum of art comprises of a picture gallery, a collection of casts of Thorvaldsen’s works and a cabinet of engravings.
    All are correct
    Option D
    Among the given sentence, sentence (D) contains an error. It is to be noted that “comprises” means consist of; be made up of. Therefore, ‘comprises’ does not take the preposition ‘of’ along with it as it stands redundant in reference to its meaning. All the other given sentences are devoid of all grammatical errors; hence, option (d) is the most feasible answer choice.

     

  3. I suggested to him to adapt himself to his new conditions.
    Industrialization had a great influence on the development of the economy in Japan.

    The media has a lot of influence on the outcome of an election.
    None is correct
    Option A
    Among the given sentences, sentence (A) contains an error in it. To make the sentence correct “to adapt” should be replaced by “that he should adapt” as sentence structure after the verb ‘suggested’ in an indirect narration should be [that + subject + should + V1]. Therefore, the structure “to + V1” is incorrect in indirect narration while using the verb “suggested/ proposed”.
