Directions: In the following question, some part of the sentence may have errors. Find out which part of the sentence has an error and select the appropriate option. If a sentence is free from error, select 'No Error'.
1
A vast number (A) / of people greeted (B) / the film star on his arrival (C) / at the airport. (D) / No error (E)
» Explain it
A
In part A, the adjective 'vast' is not appropriate in the context and hence must be replaced with either 'large' or 'great' to make it a grammatically correct sentence.
 
Vast means very great in size, number, amount, or quantity and the use of the noun 'number' after it is erroneous.
 
We could have said 'A vast gathering of people.', which would also have been correct. 
 
Some examples of other similar faulty constructions
'Blunder mistake', 'the highest zenith', 'like for example', etc.

Hence, option A is correct.
 
2
The weather is (A) / much more warmer (B) / than it was (C) / a few days ago. (D) / No error (E) 
» Explain it
B
Double comparatives and Superlatives are always avoided. In part B, 'more' hence must be omitted to make it a grammatically correct sentence. 

Exception: We have in Shakespeare- "It was the most unkindest cut of all."

Hence, option B is correct.

 
3
When he found out that (A) / the girl had escaped (B) / he was absolute (C) / irritated and furious. (D) / No error (E) 
» Explain it
C
In part C, the adjective 'absolute' must be replaced with the adverb 'absolutely' as it is modifying the adjectives 'irritated' and 'furious'. 

Hence, option C is correct.

 
4
The noise was (A) / so faintly that (B) / one had to strain (C) / one's earns to hear it. (D) / No error (E) 
» Explain it
B
In part B, the adverb 'faintly' must be replaced with the adjective 'faint' as it is modifying the noun 'noise'.

Hence, option B is correct.

 
5
As they watched (A) / the football match (B) / the huge crowd (C) / chant in unison. (D) / No error (E)
» Explain it
D
In part D, the verb 'chant' must be replaced with its past form 'chanted' to match the tense in the sentence.

Hence, option D is correct.
