Answer Key With Explanations:

1. (c) Help is extended ‘to’ someone, not ‘for’ someone.

2. (d) ‘Survival’ (n) should be replaced by the past tense verb, ‘survived’.

3. (b) The present perfect form of the verb is to be used. ‘Once he has paid the money’ is the correct form.

4. (d) It is not correct to write ‘as’ after ‘considered’. One is considered or called ‘a selfish thing’ or simply ‘considered selfish’.

5. (c) The correct verb form should be used. ‘Resort’ instead of ‘resorting’ will be the correct verb.

6. (c) The verb ‘are’ should follow the noun ‘other topics’ to which it refers. The (c) part of the sentence should read, ‘know what other topics are most’.

7. (a) The comparative should be uniformly used. Both the adjectives ‘smooth’ and ‘easy’ should be in the same form. ‘Smoother and easier’ is the correct usage.

8. (d) The article ‘the’ is necessary before ‘entertainment industry’.

9. (a) As we are referring to ‘the presence’ of a member, a singular verb (‘agonises’) should be used.

10. (b) The pronoun should be used in the objective case (‘him here’) and not in the subjective case (‘he’)
