Directions: The given sentence has been broken up into four different parts. The error, if any, will be in any one part of the sentence. Select the option which contains the part of the sentence which has an error (spelling, grammatical or contextual). If there is no error, choose option E.
» Explain it
D
There is an error in part D of the sentence as the definitely article ‘the’ has not been used before the names of the oceans. 

The correct sentence would be:
 
“The Western Cape is a coastal province containing  Africa’s southernmost point as well as the apocryphal meeting point of the Indian and Atlantic Ocean.”

Option D is hence the correct answer.
» Explain it
C
There is an idiomatic error in the part C of the sentence. ‘Improve’ will be replaced by ‘improving’ because the phrase ‘with a view to’ is followed by a noun or a gerund.

Ex. Strips of rainforest were purchased with a view to creating protected areas.
 
The correct sentence would hence be:
 
“The government has started a new diplomatic policy with a view to improving relations with the neighbouring countries.”

Option C is hence the correct answer.
» Explain it
B
There is an error in B part of the sentence as the subject used in the sentence is singular in nature and not plural. Clearly, we need to use a singular verb here. Hence ‘have’ must be replaced by ‘has’ in the sentence.
 
The correct sentence would hence be:
 
“The youngster, who has been awarded the sport's day award, has represented India in countries like U.S., France, and even thrice in Pakistan along with others.”

Option B is hence the correct answer.
 
» Explain it
B
There is an error of 'parallelism' in part B of the sentence as according to the rule of parallel construction the parts of speech used before and after ‘and’ should be the same. Therefore, the inifitive 'to give’ must be replaced by the gerund ‘giving’ in the sentence.
 
The correct sentence would be:
 
“We strongly believe in motivating the students and giving them the opportunities to explore their potential and understand the importance of team work.”

Option B is hence the correct answer.
» Explain it
C
The fragment C of the sentence is erroneous as usage of active voice in this part makes it absurd in the context.

The correct sentence would therefore be, “The uplift of poor Dalits, minorities, transgenders and other marginalized sections requires ethical governance and sound policies that are monitored periodically followed by adequate implementation.”

Option C is hence the correct answer.
