Frequensy–Frequency

2) Answer: A

The correct answer is option (a).

The error lies in part `a’ of the sentence.

`To’ is followed by the first form of the verb (to + V1) in an infinitive. Hence replace `made with `make’ to make the sentence grammatically correct.

3) Answer: B

The correct answer is option (b).

Replace `Are’ with `is’ to make the sentence grammatically correct. The noun `Trend’ is singular it should be followed by a `singular’ verb. Hence, usage of `are’ is incorrect.

4) Answer: B

The correct answer is option (b).

The given sentence is correct.

To keep away from – It is a phrase which means, ` To maintain a physical separation, as between two or more people or things.To avoid something, usually because it is harmful or dangerous.

As per the context of the sentence, the usage of given phrase is correct & hence option `b’ is the correct choice.

5) Answer: A

The correct answer is option (a).

Congregation – a group of people assembled for religious worship.

Option `a’ depicts the same meaning as that of the group of given words. Hence, option `a’ is the correct choice.

6) Answer: A

The correct answer is option (a).

Jump the gun – It is an idiomatic expression which means to do something too soon, especially without thinking carefully about it.

Option `a’ depicts the appropriate meaning of the given idiom & hence is the correct choice.

7) Answer: B

The correct answer is option (b).

The error lies in part `b’ of the sentence. Usage of `Can & able’ together is wrong.

Can – It is a modal verb which means ‘to be able to’. `Can’ it itself means `able to’.

Remove ` be able to’ or replace ‘can be’ with ‘am’ to make the sentence grammatically correct.

9) Answer: A

The correct answer is option (a).

speaker in our own words to another person. In direct speech, we convey the message of

the speaker in his own actual words without any change to another person. We need to

Rules for conversion of Indirect Speech to Direct Speech –

The given sentence is ‘interrogative Sentence.’

Put a comma before the statement.

‘There’ changes to ‘Here’.

10) Answer: B

The correct answer is option b.

The correct sequence is – DBCA.

B– it gives an example that we received forwarded messages that sounds as a medical advice & though we are not sure of those forwarded messages.

C – it continues further that even though we are not sure, we sent those messages to friends & relatives because of our belief that we are doing good. Hence, BC forms the pair.
