Directions:(1-5) A sentence in five parts is denoted by (1), (A), (B), (C), (D). There is an error of grammar/ idiom in parts (A), (B), (C), (D) which make the sentence either grammatically or contextually incorrect. Choose the option with parts containing error/(s) and ignore errors of punctuations if any. Note: Consider part (1) in bold/ underlined as correct and error if any in (A), (B), (C), (D) will only be in two parts.

1. Question

It was Congress that thwarted (1)/ established convention in 2008 by deferring the (A)/ monsoon session to October-November leaving no room (B)/ for a winter session after (C)/ scraping through a controversial trust vote. (D)

Ans: 5
There are no errors in the sentence. In (D), ‘scraping through’ means ‘managing or surviving with difficulty’ and is correctly used in the sentence.
2. Question

With the timeline for (1)/ internal elections approved and with (A)/ state units of the party having already passed (B)/ resolutions endorsed Rahul’s promotion, it is (C)/ expected to be a merely formality. (D)

Ans: 4
(C) — ‘endorsing’ (meaning ‘publicly approving or supporting’) should replace ‘endorsed’ as the past form of the verb does not fit the sentence correctly; (D) — ‘merely formality’ makes no sense and should be replaced with ‘mere formality’. We need an adjective (mere) in place of an adverb (merely) to qualify the noun ‘formality’.
3. Question

While the community may think (1)/ that doctors just look after sick patients, (A)/ there is a long and successful history (B)/ of medical advocacy to improve (C)/ the health of the whole community. (D)

 Ans: 5
The sentence is correct. In (A), ‘look after’ is a phrasal verb that means ‘to take care’, while in (C), ‘advocacy’ is correctly used. Medical advocacy is a profession that helps patients address billing issues and other related issues when they come up. The right answer is (e).
4. Question

The wave of accusations against (1)/ high-profile politicians (A)/ and entertainment figures in the US and UK (B)/ have so far only caused ripples in the (C)/ Indian cinema, world’s the largest industry. (D)

Ans: 2
C — In (1), ‘wave of accusations’ is singular, not plural. That is the subject of the sentence, and hence the verb will start with ‘has’, not ‘have’. D — “world’s the largest” is an incorrect way of mentioning the superlative and should be written as ‘the world’s largest’. (b) is the correct option.
5. Question

Delhi chokes every winter (1)/ as cool air traps a toxic blend with (A)/ pollutants from crop burning, car exhausts, (B)/ open fires, construction dust and (C)/ industrial emissions close from the ground. (D)

Ans: 4
A — We use ‘blend with’ in the form ‘blend (something) with (something)’. However, when something is a result of the act of blending, we use ‘blend of’, which is the correct form here and should replace ‘blend with’. D — ‘close from the ground’ is grammatically incorrect and should be replaced with ‘close to the ground’.
6. Question

Read each sentence to find out whether there is any grammatical mistake/error in it. The error, if any, will be in one part of the sentence. Mark the number of that part with error as your answer. If there is no error, mark (5).
