Mixed English Questions for upcoming Exam — Set 412

Directions(1-4): In the given question, a sentence is divided into four parts. There are errors in three parts. Choose the part which doesn’t have an error. If all the four parts are correct, mark E, i.e. ‘All are correct’ as the answer.

  1. We need to understand (A)/ the landscapes of emerge extended urbanization better (B)/ if we want to predict, avoid and reacting (C)/ to emerging disease outbreaks more efficacy. (D)
    A
    B
    C
    D
    All are correct
    Option A
    Part B- In place of ’emerge’ it should be ’emerging’
    Part C- In place of ‘reacting’, it should be ‘react; as per the rule of parallelism.
    Part D- After ‘more’ we need an adverb and not a noun to properly describe ‘how effectively’. So, it should be ‘efficaciously’ instead of ‘efficacy’.

     

  2. The point of stillness that you have go to not only to write, (A)/ but to read seriously, (B)/ is the point where you could (C)/ actually made responsible decisions. (D)
    A
    B
    C
    D
    All are correct
    Option A
    In part A the correlative conjunction ‘not only’ is mentioned. The other half of this is ‘but also’. But in part B we only find ‘but’ which makes it incorrect.
    Both parts C and D have errors in their tense. In part C instead of the past tense ‘could’ we need the present tense ‘can’. Similarly, in part D instead of the past tense ‘made’ we need the present tense ‘make’.

     

  3. You can’t go there yet (A)/ have a quiet conversation anymore (B)/ like they play (C)/ the background music too loudly. (D)
    A
    B
    C
    D
    All are correct
    Option B
    In part A the usage of the coordinating conjunction ‘yet’ is incorrect. Both clauses in parts A and B are similar (as in negative) and dependent. So, the correct conjunction that should be used here is ‘and’.
    In part C the usage of the preposition ‘like’ is incorrect. We need to use the conjunction ‘as’ or ‘because’ to indicate that something happens during the time when something else is taking place.
    In part D, instead of the adverb ‘loudly’, we need to use the adjective ‘loud’ to describe the noun ‘background music’.

     

  4. I’m reminding of Anne Tyler’s “The Accidental Tourist”, (A)/ in which books is recommended as props (B)/ for travellers who would rather avoid (C)/ idle conversation through strangers. (D)
    A
    B
    C
    D
    All are correct
    Option C
    In part A, the incorrect tense has been used. The writer is thinking about a previously read book, so the tense should be in the past tense form ‘reminded’ instead of the present continuous tense ‘reminding’.
    In part B, subject-verb agreement is voided because of the usage of the singular verb ‘is’ with the plural noun ‘books’. It should be ‘are’ and not ‘is’.
    In part D, the usage of the adverb ‘through’ is incorrect. ‘Through’ means from one side to the other by way of the interior. While the implication of the sentence part is that the ‘chatter’ is along or together with others/group etc (strangers). So, it should be ‘with’.
