Answers Key With Explanations:

1. (b) ‘That which’ is redundant; simply ‘that’ will do.

2. (a) The phrase ‘put on’ means ‘wear’ or ‘apply’. It should be ‘put in’ here; ‘put in’ means ‘submit’ a request, claim.

3. (b) The correct preposition is to be used. One is puzzled ‘by’ something, and not ‘on’ it.

4. (b) The correct preposition is to be used. We work on something ‘for’ some time.

5. (b) ‘Of’ is the correct preposition; it should replace ‘for’.

6. (e) No error.

7. (b) A ladder is fixed ‘to’ the wall, not ‘for’ it. If instead of ‘fixed’, the word used is ‘placed’ the preposition would be ‘against’.

8. (d) One appears ‘before’ an investigation committee, not ‘to’ it.

9. (a) A past tense should be used in the first part of the sentence to maintain the correct tense form.

10. (b) Use ‘closed’, not ‘close’. The past tense verb should be used throughout.
