    Option B
    Note that Too much modifies a noun, a verb, or an adverb, and much too modifies an adjective or adverb. Since ‘expensive’ is an adjective it should be preceded by the adverb ‘much too’ to make the sentence grammatically correct.

    Option C
    ‘Between’ should be used in place of ‘among’, since it mentions two entities-‘those with access to uber-fast connections’ and ‘those with none’.
    ‘Generally ‘between’ is used when we refer to two things which are clearly separated. ‘Among’ is used to talk about things which are not clearly separated because they are part of a group or crowd or mass of objects.

  11. The assertion that free international trade, under (1)/ the umbrella of the World Trade Organization, is beneficial (2)/ to all nations, is taken as an universal (3)/ truth; a placeless piece of knowledge. (4)
    1

    3
    4
    No error

    We need to replace ‘An’ with ‘A’. Article ‘A’ is used before words which begin with a vowel but are pronounced as with a consonant. As— A European, a unique chance, a one-rupee note, a usual sight, a universal truth.
