Directions: In the following questions, some part of the sentence is underlined. Which of the options given below the sentence should replace the part underlined to make the sentence grammatically correct? If the sentence is correct as it is given then choose option E ‘No Correction required’ as the answer.
1
Five people which ignored an evacuation order were trapped in a mountain region encircled by a wildfire.
» Explain it
A
As the noun 'people' implies that the subject is not a non-living object, the use of the relative pronoun 'which' is erroneous and hence must be replaced with 'who' to make it a grammatically correct sentence.

Hence, the option A is correct.

 
2
The actress says that she is not comfortable walk into the ramp in designer-wear.
» Explain it
B
'To walk down something' means to go down something on foot. 

Ex. She walked down the path and turned to the right.

The underlined part hence must be replaced with 'walking down' to make it a grammatically correct sentence.

Hence, the option B is correct.
 
3
He was a men of few words but was very intelligent and respected by one and all.
» Explain it
A
As the idiom 'Man of few words' is used for a singular subject, the underlined part hence must be replaced with 'man of few words' to make it a grammatically correct sentence.

'Man of few words' means someone, not necessarily a man, who speaks concisely or not at all.

Ex. He is a man of few words, but he usually makes a lot of sense.

Hence, the option A is correct.


4
He was so tired that he could barely keeping his eyes open while driving.
» Explain it
A
Use of a gerund after a modal verb is erroneous. We don't say - "He cannot working hard." 

The underlined part hence must be replaced with 'could barely keep' to make it a grammatically correct sentence.

Hence, the option B is correct.

 
5

» Explain it
E
The sentence is absolutely correct.

Hence, the option E is correct.
