Solutions & Answers

1. (2) ABD –  ‘The
need to set up a good library in the locality has been in the minds of the
people’ is correct. Therefore option (c) requires an article-the, otherwise the
expression is not correct.
2. (2) ABC-  Most
people would have attended the union meeting if they had had a longer notice of
it. Therefore option (d) is wrong and article ‘a’ should be used before longer.
3. (1) ACD – He took to reading the Times for better
knowledge of the facts, is the correct sentence. Therefore in option (b)
article ‘the’ will be used before the name of a newspaper, Time.
4. (1)  BCD – When
children have difficulty in understanding a certain mathematical process, it is
often because their teachers do not understand it conceptually themselves and
do not present it in a way that children can understand. Therefore option (a)
difficulty will take the preposition ‘in’ to be correctly expressed.
5. (2) ABD – Invest in programs that ensure a healthy pregnancy,
is the correct use.
6. (2) ABD – The number of scenes depicting alcohol
consumption has increased dramatically over— is the right use. Therefore the
number as the subject will take a singular verb ‘has’, in option (c).
7. (1) ACD – The provided information is based on a single
theme therefore the two parts of the sentence should be connected by
conjunction ‘and’ not by ‘but’. The conjunction ‘But’ is used when the flow of
information is in opposite direction.
8. (3) BCD – Less is used when you’re referring to something
that can’t be counted or doesn’t have a plural, fewer is used for ‘countable’
and less for ‘uncountable’. In the given sentence, since ‘problems’ are countable,
‘fewer’ should be used.
9. (4) ABC – Here the singular subject Singapore will take
pronoun its in option (d).

10. (1) ACD – Most unique is the wrong comparative. In
option (b) So, it should be ‘the gown was unique’.
