Answer Key with Explanations:

1. (b) The reference is not to any particular Holi festival, but Holi festival in general. ‘That’ should be replaced by ‘the’.

2. (a) The comparative ‘more’ is unnecessarily used.

3. (b) ‘Whom’ (objective pronoun) should replaced ‘who’ (subjective pronoun).

4. (c) For subject-verb agreement, the plural verb ‘are’ should be used as we are referring to ‘advantages’.

5. (b) ‘Quickly’ is an adverb and must follow the verb ‘come’.

6. (c) The pronoun ‘its’ should be used in placed of ‘their’ as we are referring to a singular entity (the ‘management’)

7. (c) ‘His’ or ‘her’ should be used as we are referring to ‘a person’. ‘Every (singular) needs a singular pronoun.

8. (c) Past tense verb should not be used; ‘have’ should replace ‘was’ for verb uniformity (present form).

9. (a) One person simply ‘resembles’ another. ‘Resembles’ means ‘looks like’. Some verbs like ‘resembles’ do not take ‘to’ after them.

10. (b) With ‘neither’, meaning ‘none of the two’, only a singular verb should be used. So, ‘is’ coming not ‘are’ coming.
