3. Answer: (A) Hardly had he entered
4. Answer: (A) That you are not cheated
5. Answer: (A) Are at cross purposes
6. Answer: (D) and I could almost
Explanation: The sentence describes an event in the past in simple past tense. So, ‘could’ is the correct form. ‘But’ is a conjunction used to describe a contrast. So, ‘and’ is the correct conjunction to be used. Therefore, the correct phrase is ‘and I could almost’.
7. Answer: (C) Went
Explanation: The sentence consists of two actions which happened in the past. In such cases, the first action must use the past perfect tense and the second action uses the simple past tense. Thus the correct phrase to replace in the sentence is ‘went’ in place of ‘was going’.
8. Answer: (E) No Correction is required
Explanation: ‘Course’ means direction and has been correctly used in the given sentence. ‘Coarse’ means ‘harsh’ which would be a misfit. Hence no improvement
9. Answer: (A) To
Explanation: The correct preposition to be used with ‘in order’ is ‘to’ and not ‘for’. Since ‘in order’ already denotes a purpose the preposition needs to specify a direction and not the purpose. Thus the correct phrase to be used is ‘to’ in place of ‘for’.
10. Answer: (C) As naughty
Explanation: The sentence is using the positive degree of comparison since the conjunction ‘as’ is used after the highlighted word. The adjective should be preceded by ‘as’ and should be in its positive degree ‘naughty’. Thus the correct phrase to replace in the sentence is ‘as naughty’.
