Direction(1-5): In the following question, a part of the sentence is printed in bold. Below the sentence alternatives to the bold part are given at (A), (B), (C) and (D) which may help improve the sentence. Choose the correct alternative. In case the given sentence is correct, your answer is (E) i.e. No correction required.

1. Question
From among various alternatives we should choose the one which being viable and consumes less time and energy.
Ans: 3
Option (c) is the correct choice. The given phrase “being viable and consumes less” should be replaced with “is viable and consumes less” to make the sentence grammatically correct. All the other given options fail to fit into the sentence in a coherent manner.
2. Question

He met with an accident and was immediately admitted to the hospital.

Ans: 1
The given phrase in bold should be replaced with the option (a) i.e., “admitted to hospital”. It is to be noted that the article in the given phrase should be omitted as places like hospital, temple, jail, prison, school, college etc., do not require any article if the places are used for the specific purpose for which they are meant to be. Hence, with the rationale provided option (a) is the correct choice.
3. Question

He is far more serious practitioner now than he would have to be in the past.

Ans: 2
Replace “would have to be” with “used to be” to make the sentence contextually correct as whenever there is a reference of an activity in past “used to be” is used to make the sentence grammatically correct. Hence, option (b) is the correct choice.
4. Question

There will have to be a sea change in people’s attitudes if public transport is ever to replace the private car.

Ans: 2
Option (b) is correct. ‘A sea change’ means a profound or notable transformation.
5. Question

6. Question

In the current knowledge-driven economy, the higher education system playing a major role in social development and national economic competitiveness.
(I)plays a major role
(II)has played a major role
(III)may play a major role

Ans: 4
All the above expressions can be used to replace the existing phrase to make the sentence grammatically correct and logically meaningful. It is to be noted that the expression “ playing a major role ” misses a helping verb to complement the sentence grammatically. If we consider the grammatical aspect of the sentence, all the three expressions given as alternatives follow the correct grammar syntax that make the sentence contextually meaningful as well. Hence option (d) is the correct choice.
7. Question

India is in transition towards a knowledge-based economy and its competitive edge determined from the abilities of its people to create, share and use knowledge more effectively.
(I)will be determined by the abilities
(II)can be determined by the abilities
(III)have to be determined from the abilities

Ans: 2
Read the sentence carefully, it can be well verified that the given sentence is grammatically incorrect as there is an error in the highlighted part of the sentence which needs to be replaced by a correct and meaningful expression. Among the three options, the first and the second expressions provide a contextual meaning to the sentence. They both make sure that the sentence follows the correct grammar structure and the intended meaning of the sentence remains intact. However, the third expression is not befitting to the sentence as the plural verb “ have ” cannot be used for the singular subject [ India ] in this case. Hence option (b) is the correct choice.
8. Question

Man is the highest point of evolutionary ascent with the infinite probability and certitude of rising higher still.
(I)Man has been at highest point of evolutionary
(II)The evolution of man at the highest point of
(III)Man could be higher in evolution

Ans: 5
The expression “ Man is the highest point of evolutionaryis the correct expression and it also adds a meaningful sense to the sentence. It is to be noted that the word “ evolutionary ” which means “ relating to the gradual development of something ” is used as an adjective for the noun ‘ ascent ”. The expressions given as options do not fit into the sentence as they are both grammatically incorrect and contextually meaningless. Hence option (e) is the correct choice.
9. Question

The unprecedented political crisis that gripped South Africa, and of a kind that few countries in the world have countenanced, appear to be ended after the swearing-in of Cyril Ramaphosa as the country’s president.
(I)appears to have ended with the swearing-in
(II)appeared to end after the swearing-in
(III)appear to be ending with the swearing-in

Ans: 1
The correct phrase to make the sentence grammatically correct is “ appears to have ended with the swearing-in ”. It is to be noted that the subject is in singular form [ The unprecedented political crisis ], so the verb that follows the subject should also be in the similar form. Among the three options, only the first expression provides the correct structure that fits perfectly into the sentence. The other two cannot be used as they are not fitting to the correct grammar syntax. Hence option (a) is the correct choice.
10. Question

The success of the cadets from the Boys Sports Company of the Army Sports Institute, Pune, at the recent ‘Khelo India’ school games has indeed a welcome.
(I)will be indeed a welcome
(II)is indeed welcome
(III)should be welcomed

Ans: 3
The use of the article “ a ” in the highlighted portion makes the sentence incomplete as the expression suggests no proper meaning. Among the given options, both the expressions (II) and (III) can be used to replace the existing phrase to make the sentence grammatically viable. Hence option (c) is the correct choice.
