`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
On account of the (A) / high land prices we (B) / are setup the factory (C) / on the outskirts of the city. (D) / No error (E)
» Explain it
C
In part C, use of the auxiliary verb 'are' is erroneous and hence must be replaced with 'will' to make the sentence meaningful.

Hence, option C is correct.

 
2
These goods have been (A) / damaged and hence (B) / should be declared (C) / unsuitable for sale. (D) / No error (E)
» Explain it
E
The sentence is absolutely correct and thus has no error in it. 
 
Option E is hence the correct answer.
 
3
Negotiations with the bank (A) / are at an advanced (B) / stage and we hope to (C) / signed the deal soon. (D) / No error (E)
» Explain it
D
In part D, as the phrase following the main verb 'hope' has to be an infinitive (to + base form of a verb), 'signed' must be replaced with 'sign' to make it a grammatically correct sentence.

Hence, option D is correct.
 
4
As per the agreement (A) / scientists from both of (B) / the countries will work (C) / together to find the solution. (D) / No error (E)
» Explain it
B
In part B, 'both' is being used as an adjective and hence the preposition 'of' which is followed by it is not required to make the sentence complete and thus can be removed.

Hence, option B is correct.

 
5
 You have failed to produce (A) / no evidence to support (B) / the charge that he (C) / is responsible for the error. (D) / No error (E)
» Explain it
B
In the predicate part of this sentence, use of two negatives - 'failed' and 'no evidence' together is redundant and meaningless. In part B, 'no', therefore, must be replaced with 'any' to make it a grammatically correct sentence.

Hence, option B is correct.
