    • D.

      This is a fact  

    Correct Answer

    Correct Answer
    A. Elevated highways
    Explanation
    The correct sentence would then be: "As road traffic increases, elevated highways are built to solve the problem of traffic jams." "Elevated" is the proper adjective to describe highways that are raised above the ground level.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Choose the correct form of the sentence

    • D.

      I await upon your decision

    Correct Answer
    A. I await your decision
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I await your decision" because the verb "await" is followed by the preposition "for" or "upon" when used in a sentence. Therefore, the options "I wait your decision" and "I await for your decision" are incorrect. The correct form is "I await your decision" as it follows the correct structure and conveys the intended meaning.

      The captain did order his soldier to fire

    Correct Answer
    A. The captain ordered his soldier to fire
    Explanation

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    “Venus, the second planet from the sun, is exactly almost the same size as the earth.” –Pick the incorrect word.

    • C.

      Exactly almost

    • D.

      Same size

    Correct Answer

    The word "exactly" is incorrect in this sentence. "Exactly" and "almost" have opposite meanings, so they cannot be used together to describe the similarity in size between Venus and Earth.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    “Despite of the increase in train fare, most people still prefer to travel by train.” –What’s wrong in the sentence?

    • A.

      Despite of

      Prefer

    • D.

      Travel

    Correct Answer
    A. Despite of
    Explanation
    The phrase "despite of" is incorrect in the sentence. The correct phrase should be "despite" without the use of "of". "Despite" means in spite of or regardless of, and it is used to show contrast between two things. Therefore, the correct sentence would be "Despite the increase in train fare, most people still prefer to travel by train."

      Recent year

    • B.

      Forward

      Have been made

    • D.

      Genetic science

    Correct Answer

      Sufficient enough

    • D.

      My lodging house is near the school

    • C.

      My lodging is close to the school

    • D.

      My lodging is near the school

    Correct Answer
    A. My lodging is near to the school
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "My lodging is near the school." This is the most concise and grammatically correct option. "Near" already implies proximity, so adding "to" is unnecessary.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Which is an example of the redundant word?

      Wait for

    • B.

      Ask a questions

      As additional

    • D.

      Twins

    Correct Answer
    B. Ask a questions
    Explanation
    The phrase "ask a questions" contains a redundant word. The word "a" is unnecessary because "questions" is already plural, so there is no need to use the indefinite article "a" before it. Therefore, "ask questions" would be the correct and more concise way to express the idea.
