Solutions

S1. Ans.(c)

S2. Ans.(c)

Sol. Option (c) is the answer as it intends to state that the researcher spent too many months searching for the answer, so the correct phrase applied here should be “The researcher spent months scouting out the answer.”

S3. Ans.(d)

Sol. Option (d) is the answer because Sent for means to call someone and it doesn’t fit here as the intended meaning of the sentence is that the company has sent a fact list to all of its existing customers, so the correct to be used is ‘sent out’ and not ‘sent for’.

S4. Ans.(a)
