Answers :

1) Answer: a)

Use ‘has’ for a singular entity. Use past perfect form of introduce- was introduced.

2) Answer: b)

A noun is required to be filled in the first blank. Use ‘since’ here as it is talking about a certain time period.

3) Answer: c)

Here ‘from’ is the correct choice of preposition. Use ‘mean’ or ‘refer’ for more than one entity.

4) Answer: d)

Abrogation means the repeal or abolition of a law, right, or agreement. The third blank should have a noun-permanence and not an adjective- permanent.

5) Answer: a)

The correct form of preposition should be ‘from’. So option a) is correct choice.

6) Answer: b)

Option b) contains the most appropriate combination of choices here.

7) Answer: c)

Use ‘have’ with ‘few’ as few represents more than one entity.

8) Answer: d)

Both d) and b) look suitable, but ‘dispute’ is more appropriate here than ‘battle’ here.

9) Answer: a)

When you use ‘any’ for an entity , it should be followed with a singular number, i.e. ‘ground’.

10) Answer: b)

Options a) and c) are discarded since you cannot use ‘has’ with plural entities. ‘Among’ is used when we talk about many(more than two) things.
