Must read Error Spotting rules

Solutions with Explanations:

1. The error is in part B. The correct statement should be “India was becoming a hub of international arbitration and added that the”
This is part of the reported statement and is not a universal truth. So verb within the reported speech has to be changed.

2. The error is in part D. The correct statement should be “would make the country a favoured market among the emerging ones.”
This is part of the reported statement and is not a universal truth. So verb within the reported speech has to be changed.

3. There is no error in any of the four parts. So the correct option here is E.

4. The error is in part B. The correct statement should be “will give room to”
Here is the preposition mistake. Will give room is to be followed by “to” instead of “for”. “Will give room for” is to be used for some physical space whereas “will give room to” is to be used for an idea.

5. There is no error in any of the four parts. So the correct option here is E.

6. The error is in part B. The correct statement should be “India had a talent pool of lawyers and arbitrators”
This is part of the reported statement and is not a universal truth. So verb within the reported speech has to be changed.

7. The error is in part C. The correct statement should be “but also for the rest of the European Union as well.”
Not only is always followed by “but also” in the English Language.

9. The error is in part B. The correct statement should be “for 577 seats of the National Assembly.”
Here the preposition is missing.
