Spotting Errors

41) More the one (1) player have (2) been shortlisted (3) for the scholarship. (4) No error (5)

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

Answer: B

Explanation:

'More than one' in a sentence is always followed by a singular noun and singular verb. So, replace 'have' with 'has' in the second part of the sentence.


42) The news were (1) broadcast (2) all over the world (3) from XYZ media. No error (5)

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

Answer: A

Explanation:

Although some nouns like news, statistics, and politics are plural in appearance, they are singular in meaning and thus followed by a singular verb. So, in the first part of this sentence 'were' will be replaced by 'was'.


43) Neither the teachers (1) nor the principal (2) were present in (3) the function. (4) No error

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

Answer: C

Explanation:

If two different subjects are joined by 'either' or 'neither and nor' the verb agrees with the subject near to it. As the subject (principal), which is near the verb, is singular, the verb will be singular, so replace 'were' with 'was', e.g., was present in the function.


44) Sandy is not (1) able to (2) cope up with (3) the exam stress. (4) No error (5)

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

Answer: C

Explanation:

The word 'cope' generally means to deal successfully with a situation. The use of 'up' with 'cope' is superfluous. So, remove 'up' from the third part of this sentence, e.g., cope with the exam stress.


45) The recent incidents of thefts (1) amply illustrate about (2) the loopholes (3) in our security system. (4) No error (5)

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

Answer: B

Explanation:

The words like illustrate, demonstrate or describe are immediately followed by an object. So, remove 'about' from the second part of the sentence, e.g., amply illustrate the loopholes in our security system.
