  1. Direction(1-10):Which of the phrases (1), (2), (3), (4) given below each sentence should replace the word/phrase printed in the bold in the sentence to make it grammatically correct? If the sentence s correct as it is given and no correction is required, mark (5) as the answer.

    1. Question

    Karen asked the teacher about making up to the test that she had missed earlier

    Ans:3
    When you do something that you were required to do earlier but did not, such as attend a class, take a test, or complete a homework assignment, you make up for it. ‘Make up to’ is wrong.

  2. 2. Question

    Arvind is accountable for the manager for all the work that the former does

    Ans: 3
    Since the sentence suggests that Arvind is working under the manager, he is accountable to the manager. Accounted by means having been taken into account.

  3. 3. Question

    Sunita is considered as the resident expert of computers by her colleagues

    Ans:4
    considered’ does not take any preposition after it. This eliminates option 1 and 5. ‘Resident expert’ is a casual title given to a person, generally an employee, student or member, who is good at something. ‘Residential’ means designated to live in. This eliminates option 3. Option 2 is incorrect as we need a noun (expert), while ‘expertise’ is an adjective. Option 4 is grammatically and contextually correct.

  4. 4. Question

    She ate her breakfast and then quickly left for her office

    Ans:5
    There is no error in the sentence as it talks about two past actions.

  5. 5. Question

    No one knows that Armaan will visit the fair or go to a movie

    Ans:3
    Whenever the sentence talks about choices, “whether” should be used. “if” is used for a hypothetical situation of a condition.

  6. 6. Question

    You can preach respect and integrity all you want; it won’t mean a thing, when you curse out a member of your team.

    Ans: 4
    “It won’t mean a thing” means it won’t hold any significance or it won’t materialise. Hence, D will be the correct answer. Murmur = whispering.

  7. 7. Question

    The frog, often seen only as a creature found in swamps and marshy land and maybe in cartoons, has been represented in cultures the world over.

    Ans:2
    The world over means something which concerns the entire world. Now, both ‘worldwide’ and ‘global’ will conform to this. But grammatically, only worldwide will fit it, as an adverb is required. Global is an adjective. Hence, B will be the correct answer.

  8. 8. Question

    It turns out that behaviour makes people unhappy, or at least that’s what Facebook’s own researchers have said.

    Ans:4
    Turns out refers to perception or thought process or something supposedly believed. It does not refer to something being definitely true. In that sense, both C & D can be correct. But we need the singular form of verb here, leaving ‘appears’ as the correct answer. Compounds = worsening something.

  9. 9. Question

    We can see in 2018 that the people who helped shape what the internet is today are starting to rethink some of its foundations.

    Ans:5
    All the four options are equally adept as being the replacement here. Even though all of them do not have the exact same meaning, contextually and grammatically, all can fit. Hence, E will be the correct answer. Refuting = invalidate. Contesting = up for debate/discussion.

  10. 10. Question

    The Constitution of India is federal in nature in their being division of powers between the Centre and the States.

    Ans:4
    The use of ‘their being division’ is wrong. ‘their’ is used to refer to people, whereas ‘there’ refers to a place. Hence, option (a), (c) and (e) incorrect. Option (b) is grammatically incoherent and can hence be eliminated. In as much as — This is a way of writing a sentence that compares two clauses — that much the Constitution is federal as the powers are divided between the Centre and the States. Option (d) is the right answer.
