SOLUTIONS:

Ans 1. c

The Sentence I should be – He would rather go …… would signify readiness or determination (which is what is denoted in the sentence.)
Sentence II, the simple past tense not the present perfect tense – we received a message….

Ans 2. a 

I. The first verb ‘was held’ is in past tense and the second verb ‘is attended’ is in present, a past action; ‘is’ should be changed to ‘was’.
II. The second sentence has no error. But ‘knocking on’ is also correct.

Ans 3. c 

I. The verb ‘feel’ is not used in continuous tense so it should be changed to simple past tense as it is in past continuous. Change ‘was feeling’ to ‘felt’
II. The preposition ‘on’ should be replaced by ‘by’. Both the sentences have errors.

Ans 4. a 

I. ‘Few’ means no or nothing. ‘A few’, which means some should be used instead of ‘few’.
II. The given sentence has no error.

Ans 5. c 

I. The verb ‘flowed’ is the past tense of ‘flow’. Here, the past tense of ‘fly’, i.e. ‘flew’ should be used. fly – flew – flown
flow – flowed – flowed
II. The verb in the given sentence is in active voice, which is incorrect. ‘Will be finished’ is the correct form. ‘Will have been finished’ is also correct as we use future perfect tense to denote an action that will be completed by some point of time in the future. Both sentences have errors.

Ans 6. b 

I. The given sentence has no error.
II. When a correlative conjunction is used in a sentence, both the conjunctions should be followed by the words of same parts of speech. ‘Either-or’ is the correlative conjunction. Either is followed by an adjective, but or is followed by a verb, which is wrong. Delete ‘is’ to make the sentence correct.

Ans 7. a 

I Having a taste of success, the employee determined… is correct. The given sentence is a simple sentence, which has a phrase and a clause.
II. The sentence has no error. Only the first sentence has an error.

Ans 8. c 

I. The verbs ‘prefer’ takes the preposition ‘to’, not ‘than’. Use ‘to’ in the place to ‘than’ to correct the sentence.
II. Replace the preposition ‘with’ with ‘to’ to make the sentence correct. Both the sentences have errors.

Ans 9. d 

Both the sentences are correct.

Ans 10. a 

I. The words ‘loss of’ in the first sentence is redundant. Erase this to make the sentence correct.
