      It is mandatory to each of the worker for having

    Correct Answer
    C. It is mandatory that each of the workers has
    Explanation
    The correct form is "has" because "each of the workers" is treated as a singular subject. "Each" emphasizes individuality, so it takes a singular verb. The sentence means that every individual worker must have safety equipment, so the correct sentence is: "It is mandatory that each of the workers has safety equipment."

    Explanation
    The word "throng" is correctly used in options i and ii. In option i, it is used to describe a large number of shoppers gathering at the malls. In option ii, it is used to describe a vast crowd of demonstrators. Both of these options demonstrate the correct use of "throng" to convey the idea of a large group of people. Therefore, the correct answer is i & ii.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Choose the WRONG use of SUFFIX/PREFIX:

    • A.

      Strengthen

    • B.

      Delighten

    • C.

      Frighten

    • D.

      Shorten

    • E.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. Delighten
    Explanation
    The word "Delighten" is the wrong use of a suffix/prefix because "delight" is already a noun and does not require a suffix or prefix to change its meaning. The correct form would be "delightful" or "delighted".

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Choose the WRONG use of SUFFIX/PREFIX:

    • A.

      Unloyal

    • B.

      Unruffled

    • C.

      Unaccustomed

    • D.

      Uncorteous

    • E.

      None

    Correct Answer
    A. Unloyal
    Explanation
    The word "unloyal" is the incorrect use of a prefix. The correct form of the word should be "disloyal." The prefix "un-" is typically used to negate the meaning of a word, while the prefix "dis-" is used to indicate the opposite or absence of a quality. Therefore, "unloyal" is not a standard or accepted form of the word.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Gauhar Jamil, ______ of the pioneers of modern dance, didn’t begin dancing until he was 21.

    • A.

      Was one

    • B.

      Who, as one

    • C.

      He is known

    • D.

      One

    • E.

      Whose one

    Correct Answer
    D. One
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "one". This answer completes the sentence by stating that Gauhar Jamil was one of the pioneers of modern dance. The phrase "one of" indicates that there were multiple pioneers, and Gauhar Jamil was among them. The sentence also mentions that he didn't begin dancing until he was 21, which implies that he achieved recognition and success in the field despite starting relatively late.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Choose the WRONG use of SUFFIX/PREFIX:

    • A.

      Disenthrall

    • B.

      Discrete

    • C.

      Disaccordant

    • D.

      Discolor

    • E.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. Disaccordant
    Explanation
    The word "Disaccordant" is the incorrect use of a prefix because the correct prefix for this word would be "in," not "dis." The word "accordant" means in agreement or harmony, so adding the prefix "dis" would create a word that means not in agreement or harmony. However, the correct prefix to use in this case would be "in," resulting in the word "inaccordant" which means not in agreement or harmony. Therefore, "Disaccordant" is the wrong use of a prefix.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Choose the WRONG use of SUFFIX/PREFIX:

    • A.

      Equivocal

    • B.

      Equilateral

    • C.

      Equidivision

    • D.

      Equilibrate

    • E.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. Equidivision
    Explanation
    The word "equidivision" is the incorrect use of a prefix. The correct prefix for "division" should be "di-" or "tri-" to indicate dividing into two or three parts, respectively. The prefix "equi-" means equal or evenly distributed, so "equidivision" does not accurately convey the intended meaning.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Choose the WRONG use of SUFFIX/PREFIX:

    • A.

      Venation

    • B.

      Doctrination

    • C.

      Diminution

    • D.

      Attrition

    • E.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. Doctrination
    Explanation
    The word "Doctrination" is the wrong use of a suffix/prefix because it does not contain any prefix or suffix. The correct use of a suffix/prefix would involve adding a word part to the beginning or end of a base word to create a new word with a different meaning. In this case, "Doctrination" is a standalone word without any added word parts.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    [(a)Even after] studying [(b)all the new materials], Rakib was not [(c)capable of] [(d)rising] his grades.

    • A.

      A

    • B.

      B

    • C.

      C

    • D.

      D

    • E.

      E

    Correct Answer
    D. D
    Explanation
    The correct answer is d because "rising" is the correct verb form to use in this context. The sentence is discussing Rakib's inability to improve his grades despite studying all the new materials. Therefore, the verb "rising" is appropriate as it indicates an upward movement or improvement in his grades.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    I [(a)told] my students to [(b)don't] discuss the [(c)take-home exam scripts] [(d)with each other].

      B

    • C.

      C

    • D.

      D

    • E.

      E

    Correct Answer
    B. B
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "b" because the verb "told" should be followed by an object pronoun (me, him, her, us, them) instead of a subject pronoun (I, you, he, she, it, we, they). Therefore, the correct phrase should be "told them."

    Rate this question:

  • 13.

      C

    • D.

      D

    • E.

      E/ No Error

    Correct Answer
    A. A
    Explanation
    The given sentence is in the past perfect tense. The subject "she" had already seen the movie before, so the correct form of the verb should be "having seen" instead of "being seen." "Being seen" implies that someone else saw her, which does not make sense in the context of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    As [(a)a young adult], I want to travel, to learn and, in [(b)many indescribable way], [(c)to make] a difference [(d)in  the world around] me.

      C

    • D.

      D

    • E.

      E/ No Error

    Correct Answer
    B. B
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "many indescribable way" because the phrase should be "many indescribable ways" to match the plural subject "I want to travel, to learn and, to make a difference."

    Rate this question:

    • C.

      C

    • D.

      D

    • E.

      E/ No Error

    Correct Answer
    B. B
    Explanation
    The correct answer is (b) because the phrase "putting of for" is incorrect. The correct phrase is "putting off" which means to delay or postpone. Therefore, the correct sentence should be "You cannot keep putting off for tomorrow what you can do today."

    • D.

      D

    • E.

      [(e) No error]

    Correct Answer
    D. D
    Explanation
    The pronoun "its" in option (d) does not have a clear antecedent in the sentence. The sentence is referring to the dispute between the lawyers, so the correct pronoun to use would be "their" instead of "its". This would make the sentence grammatically correct and coherent.

      Line: Triangle

    • D.

      Triangle: Hexagon

    • E.

      Pyramid: Base

    Correct Answer
    B. Square: Cube
    Explanation
    A circle is a two-dimensional shape, while a sphere is a three-dimensional shape. Similarly, a square is a two-dimensional shape, and a cube is a three-dimensional shape. Therefore, the relationship between a square and a cube is the same as the relationship between a circle and a sphere.

    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "Spring brings with it signs of renewal that make themselves known in a thousand ways." This sentence is correct because "signs" is plural, so it should be followed by the plural verb "make." Additionally, "themselves" is used correctly to refer back to the plural noun "signs."

    • D.

      The children wish they had visited the zoo last week.

    • E.

      | always enjoy this beautiful scene.

    Correct Answer
    C. When children watch too much violence on TV, it may effect their behavior.
    Explanation
    The sentence "When children watch too much violence on TV, it may effect their behavior" is incorrect. The correct word to use in this context is "affect" instead of "effect". The verb "affect" means to have an influence on something, while "effect" is a noun that refers to the result or consequence of something. In this case, the sentence is discussing how watching violence on TV can impact or influence children's behavior, so the correct word to use is "affect".

The word "obstreperous" means noisy and difficult to control. By using this word, it suggests that the admin officer's way of redacting was disruptive or unruly, leading to the authority's reprimand.
