James is a proactive police officer, so although local rebel teenagers are upset by his strict nature, the overall security of the city has improved significantly since he was hired. No error 18. He and I (a)/made a plan to surprise our (b)/mother on her birthday. (c)/ No error Solution: the error is in part (a) of the sentence. If two pronouns are connected by “and”, the verb is retained in the plural. Therefore, in part (a) of the sentence, the words “have” should be replaced. While the young analyst worries that his girlfriend is not very skilled at driving, each of his other redemptive characteristics compensates for their ability to drive. No mistake Salami and chorizo in the fridge are very salty, so you might want to serve a little of it to make your customers feel great. No error 5. Sunita was accused in addition to her friends/of not telling the truth in court. (c)/ No error Solution: the error is in part (b) of the sentence. For the presentation, see the first sentence.

My favorite history teacher, as well as some of his administrators, were asked to resign because fewer students took history classes than ever before. No error 15) “to” “omit” 🔹 indication – “Better” is used to give advice or tell people what to do. Meaning is the present or the future, not the past. Always use “had” before you don`t have. With better, we use the naked infinitiv. 16) No error 17) The sentence is perfectly correct. 🔹- help, offer, let go, do are causal verbs, because they provoke something else. When used in the active voice, they are followed (except let) by the naked infinitive (v1). But when used in a passive voice, they are followed by an infinitive (up to +v1). Example – I got my friend to solve the riddle. ✔️ My friend was made to solve the riddle. ✔️ 18) No error 🔹 indication – here the word depends better on the word “too much better”, which means to improve or do better than someone else.

19) If negative ideas are introduced into a noun game with verbs (Imagine, think, believe, according to) in the main sentence, it is advisable to make the main sentence negative. 11. The number of accidents is increasing (a) day by day (b) on the Delhi Metro road. (c)/ No error solution: the error is in part (a) of the sentence. “The number of” is always followed by a plural noun, but a singular verbage. Therefore, the “are” should be replaced by “is”. 10) `was` instead of `were` 11) no error 12) `write` instead of 13) `helped` instead of help 🔹 Note – would prefer/would have preferred to be followed by a sentence in the connective spirit. . .
