Spotting Errors

51) Politician's support (1) to the criminals (2) is universally condemned (3) by all. (4) No error (5)

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. 4
  5. 5

Answer: D

Explanation:

'By all' and "universally" are not used together in a sentence as they both have the same meaning. So, remove 'by all' from this sentence.


52) Robert came to (1) the final conclusion (2) that he would (3) not join the academy. (4) No error.

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. 4
  5. 5

Answer: B

Explanation:

'Final' and 'conclusion' should not be used together in a sentence otherwise the sentence will become superfluous. So, remove 'final' from the second part of the sentence.


53) The old lady (1) asked Julie (2) if there was any (3) place in the train. (4) No error (5)

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. 4
  5. 5

Answer: D

Explanation:

In the case of a train, bus, cart, van or compartment, the word 'room' is used to indicate space, instead of 'place'. So, replace 'place' with 'room' in the sentence.


54) He put his (1) sign at the bottom (2) of the paper (3) and submitted it. (4) No error (5)

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. 4
  5. 5

Answer: B

Explanation:

In this sentence use of 'sign' is incorrect. Replace it with 'signature'. A sign is a verb, e.g., He signed the document. Signature is a noun, e.g., she put his signature on the document.


55) Every man and (1) woman (2) will do his best (3) to win the game. (4) No error (5)

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. 4
  5. 5

Answer: C

Explanation:

If two singular nouns are joined by 'and', as well as preceded by each or every, the pronoun used must be singular and agree in gender with the second noun or the closest noun. So, replace 'his' with 'her' in this sentence, e.g., will do her best to win the game.
