Spotting Errors

71) Raman did not (1) go to the office (2) because it was (3) raining. (4) No error (5)

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

Answer: C

Explanation:

'Because' is used for the strongest cause and 'as' or 'for' is used to show the weakest cause. Rain is not a big cause for not going to the office. So, replace 'because' with 'as' in this sentence, e.g., as it was raining.


72) Tom could not (1) go to the office (2) as he was (3) seriously ill. (4) No error (5)

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

Answer: C

Explanation:

Being seriously ill is the strongest reason for not going to the office. The conjunction 'because' is used to show the strongest reason, so replace 'as' with 'because', e.g., because he was seriously ill.


73) Unless we do not know (1) where to go (2), we can't find (3) that restaurant. (4) No error (5)

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

Answer: A

Explanation:

The conjunction 'unless' is used to indicate a negative sense. So, remove 'do not' in the first part of the sentence, e.g., unless we know where to go.


74) I can't allow (1) you to go out of the office (2) unless they provide (3) further instructions. (4) No error (5)

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

Answer: C

Explanation:

The conjunction 'until' shows a sense of time, whereas 'unless' shows a condition. So, in this sentence 'until' must be used, e.g., until they provide further instructions.

  1. 1
  2. 2
