Answer Key With Explanations:

1. (c) With ‘more’ in (b) there is no need to have ‘rather’; just ‘than’ is sufficient.

2. (c) The word should be ‘appreciated’ (v.) (praised) and not ‘ appreciable’ (adj.) (considerable).

3. (c) As we are referring to ‘his involvement’. It should be ‘has been’ and not ‘have been’. There has to be agreement between the noun, number and the verb. Don’t make the mistake of matching the verb with ‘fraud cases’.

4. (d) ‘Was not knowing nothing’ has a wrong tense usage and also involves two negatives. It should be ‘did not know anything’ (or ‘knew nothing’) in place of ‘was not knowing nothing’.

5. (a) It should be ‘uncertain’ (adj.) before ‘capital market conditions and not ‘uncertainly’ (noun).

6. (b) Correct usage is ‘ability to movitate people’.

7. (e) No error.

8. (a) The word ‘with’ must be replaced by ‘under’; you work ‘under’ constraints, not ‘with’ constraints.

9. (e) No error.

10. (a) ‘Complaint’ (noun) should be replaced by ‘complained’ (verb)
