Answer Key With Explanations:

1. (c) Use ‘for’, not ‘since’

2. (e) No error.

3. (d) The same friend is both a singer and a scientist. So it should be ‘who is a singer and scientist ‘.

4. (b) As we are referring to a ‘majority’, implying ‘many’, ‘recommend’ is the right word to be used.

5. (a) The reference is to one of the recent studies, not a particular one. So the definite article ‘the’ should not be used at the beginning. As there is no clear reference to a specific study, it is preferable to use the indefinite article ‘A’ instead of the definite article The.

6. (b) Where the superlative is used, ‘the’ is the article that must precede it.

7. (c) The reference is to a plural noun, as ‘one of the’ implies. ‘Bad habits’ should be used as the sentence refers to ‘one’ of the most widely spread bad habits.

8. (e) No error.

9. (d) ‘Them’ should be replaced by ‘him or her’ (singular) to agree with the singular ‘teacher’.

10. (b) One dresses ‘oneself’. So, Rajan dressed ‘himself’. ‘Himself’ is a compound personal pronoun of the reflexive kind. It refers back to the subject or turns back the action of the verb upon the door.
