D
Corrects the misuse of phrasal verb for noun. ‘Breakout’ is a phrasal verb meaning ‘to start or appear suddenly’ while ‘out break’ is a noun meaning ‘sudden appearance’. A preposition or an article is used before a noun, not a verb. Use preposition ‘before’ in place of ‘for’ because a preventive measure is taken before the appearance of epidemic.

Hence, the option D is correct.

D
Corrects the error of number and comparison by means of superlative degree. ‘Cattle’ is always used as plural noun, it does take ‘s’ or ‘es’ at end. While comparing by means of superlative, the latter term should include the former. So, delete the use of ‘other’ because, it excludes the former term (India).

Hence, the option D is correct.
