Spotting Errors

91) Tony had scarcely (1) finished painting (2) while he fell (3) asleep. (4) No error (5)

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

Answer: C

Explanation:

Scarcely and when comes in a pair and you have to use them in different places in a sentence to make them work. So, in this sentence, replace 'while' with 'when', e.g., Tony had scarcely finished painting when he fell asleep.


92) Hardly (1) Ricky had reached (2) the platform (3) when the train started. (4) No error (5)

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

Answer: B

Explanation:

'Hardly' is followed by 'had' and 'had' is followed by the third form of a verb. So, the correct sentence is: Hardly had Ricky reached the platform when the train started.


93) No sooner (1) did we reach the office (2) then (3) it started raining. (4) No error (5)

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

Answer: C

Explanation:

'No sooner' is always followed by 'than'. So, replace 'then' with 'than' in the sentence, e.g., No sooner did we reach the office than it started raining.


94) As soon as the peon (1) rings the bell, then (2) all the students (3) assemble in the auditorium.

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

Answer: B

Explanation:

'as soon as', 'as long as' and 'so long as' are not used with than or then. Furthermore, 'as soon as' is used to show simultaneous actions, i.e., two actions taking place at the same time. E.g., as soon as she came, the guard opened the door. So, remove 'then' in the second part of this sentence, e.g., as soon as the peon rings the bell, all the students assemble.


95) I found that jacket (1) more better than (2) any other jacket (3) of this brand. (4) No error (5)

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

Answer: B

Explanation:

The word 'better' itself shows 'more good' and 'much better' can be used instead of 'more good'. So, remove 'more' from the second part of the sentence.
