Solutions

S1. Ans.(a)

Sol. Answer Option A. Though A and C are both right (they correct the tense error of the present tense) intuition scores over instinct in the context. For the difference, refer to a dictionary. Animals have only instincts; human beings have both – instincts and intuition.

S2. Ans.(d)

Sol. Answer Option D. The verb ‘stay’ used alone is awkward – as if the city needs to be fixed in one place. ‘stay in’ means to reside, hence correct. ‘to come to’ is ambiguous, ‘visit’ is clear.

S3. Ans.(c)

Sol. Answer Option C. ‘yourself’ is a reflexive pronoun and has nothing to reflect to in this sentence, hence, ‘you” would be correct. There is tense inconsistency in the other options.

S4. Ans.(d)

Sol. Answer Option D. “the best” is necessary to correctly express the comparison. ‘kinds of food” is correct.

S5. Ans.(a)

Sol. Answer Option A. ‘vendors’ is used as a term, hence the singular verb means is correct. ‘to whom’ is correct and not who and who’s.

S6. Ans.(b)

Sol. Answer Option B. Since it is not clear that the collective noun ‘faculty’ in the context is the unit or members, it is not possible to clearly decide the verb should be singular or plural; option B removes the uncertainty. CPL is a company, the pronoun has to be ‘it’ rather than they. “help you reach your goal” (without the to) is correct.

S7. Ans.(c)

Sol. Answer Option C. We need the conjunction as in the sentence and not the preposition ‘like.’ Wreak is the correct word in the context and not wreck. Wreak means to cause the infliction of.

S8. Ans.(d)

Sol. Answer Option D. Only D is correctly punctuated. Since the name, Raj is essential to identify his friend,there cannot be a comma after friend.

S9. Ans.(a)

Sol. Answer Option A. When ‘however’ comes between two sentences use semicolon. In other sentences, commas are misplaced. Punctuation error.

S10. Ans.(a)

Sol. Answer Option A. Only Option A is correctly punctuated.

S11. Ans.(c)

Sol. The word ‘ALLOW’ is inappropriate in the given context.

S12. Ans.(b)

Sol. The word ‘QUESTION’ is inappropriate in the given context.

S13. Ans.(b)

Sol. The word ‘deal’ is incorrectly used with preposition ‘with’.

S14. Ans.(d)

Sol. The word ‘ADD’ is inappropriate in the given context.

S15. Ans.(a)

Sol. The word ‘EXPLOIT’ is inappropriate in the given context.
