Answers:
  1. (1) ABC – Here there is a comparison between two persons, so it should be‘more honest’ in place of ‘most honest’.
  2. (4) ABC – ‘Submit’ should be ‘submitting’.
  3. (1) ABC – Replace ‘would not have’ with ‘had not’.
  4. (4) BCD – ‘team leaders encourages’ should be replaced by ‘team leaders encourage’ or ‘team leader encourages’.
  5. (2) ABC – Replace ‘are’ with ‘is’ because the subject (prime minister) is singular here.
  6. (3) ABC – Replace ‘were’ with ‘was’.
  7. (3) ABD – It should be ‘the present I sent for him’.
  8. (2) ABC – It should be by his decision.
  9. (4) BCD – The sentence should begin as, ‘if 1 had come …’
  10. (1) ABC – Replace ‘at once’ with ‘at the beginning’
