    1. Question
    The government is planning to (A)/ sanction grants to pharmaceutical companies (B)/ for inventing new treatments for (C)/ diseases about malaria and tuberculosis. (D)/ No error (E)

    ‘About’ should be replaced by ‘like’. e.g. We are planning to launch restaurants like KFC and Mc’ Donalds.

    The Finance Minister’s view (A)/ is that the scheme will ensure (B)/ that millions of farmers will be (C)/ lifted out of poverty. (D)/ No error (E)

    Ans:3

     ‘Will be’ should be replaced by ‘are’. The first part of the clause is in future tense. So, second part needs to be in present tense.
    e.g. I shall go there if I shall find time.

    Ans:1

     The expression should read out as ‘As one of the leading’ instead of ‘as one of the leader’ to make the syntax correct.
    e.g. As one of the leading run scorers he will be a key in this series.

    He is not (A)/ an artist; (B) / nor he is (C) / a musician. (D) / No Error (E)

     ‘nor is he’ will be used in place of ‘nor he is’ as if one clause is affirmative and same goes with another clause then second clause starts with ‘so’ with inversion (verb+ subject).
    Ex. He likes you; so do I.

    6. Question

    Ans:3

    Use ‘neither’ in place of ‘either’. We get this idea due to ‘perpetually hesitating which of the two things he will do first’ in the sentence. We can sense hesitation and due to this we can assume that ultimately he won’t do any of those two things.
