Some respondents do agree these are knee-perk reactions and a more scientific approach was needed to tackle pollution.
» Explain it
A
The term ‘knee-perk reaction ‘ is illogical.

‘Knee-jerk reaction’ is a phrase that means a prompt action or an action without a thought process.

‘Knee-crack reaction’ is illogical.

‘Knee-deep reaction’ is a phrase which means deeply involved.

‘Knee-drop reaction’ is a wrestling attack.

Correct sentence- Some respondents do agree these are knee-jerk reactions and a more scientific approach was needed to tackle pollution.

Hence option A is correct.
2
When I hear the blue whistling thrush hopping on my roof at dawn, it automatically brings a smile and the promise of a delightful melody.
» Explain it
E
The highlighted text in the sentence is absolutely correct both grammatically as well as contextually. Thus, there is no need of improvement.

Hence option E is correct.
» Explain it
C
"Hardly - when" are the correlative conjunctions, which are always used together. Thus, use of where in the sentence is incorrect and needs to be replaced.

Secondly, use of the preposition 'into' is incorrect.

'Into' means inside, which is irrelevant to the context.

The correct preposition is 'onto' which means to and absolutely goes well with the context.

Correct sentence- There has hardly been a day in eight years when I haven’t been inspired to walk out onto my porch to capture an unusual call or species.

Hence option C is correct.
4

» Explain it
D
‘Complimentary’ means Free, which is of no relevance here, thus needs a replacement.

“Complementary “ is the correct word to be used here, which means corelated or corresponding.

Words like complementary, supplementary, contrary, corresponding etc. are always used with preposition ‘to’.

Correct sentence- We expect the addition of these two high quality portfolios to be highly complementary to our existing assets and to contribute to long-term leasing growth as India’s leading mobile operators accelerate their 4G network deployments.

Hence option D is correct.
» Explain it
B
Use of article ‘a’ before goods and services tax is grammatically incorrect. Thus the sentence needs an improvement.

‘Roll-out’ is a phrase which means to unveil or to launch and is contextually as well as grammatically correct.

Correct sentence - Businesses have been disrupted by last year's  ban on high-value notes and the roll-out of goods and services tax.

Hence option B is correct.
