Answers & Explanations

B- According to the context past form of the verb ‘begin’ should be used. (Grammatical error)
C- ‘Warming that results when the atmosphere traps heat radiating from Earth toward space’ cannot be one’s decision. (Meaningfully it is wrong.)

2. Ans: b

Explanation: A- no error in the sentence.
B- The use of ‘has been measured’ is grammatically wrong. It should be ‘have measured’.
C- ‘Plunged into’ is wrongly used here. Because plunge into means an act of thrusting into or submerging. But here according to the context it should use the word like increased. (Usage error).

Explanation: A- flood and drought are not superstition. Meaningfully the sentence is not correct.
B and C- there is no error in these sentences.
