Solution with explanation (in Hindi)

1. Replace ‘with’ by ‘of’ in part ‘C’. Make use of something = किसी अवसर का सदुपयोग करना; जैसे

a) Can you make use of these papers?
b) We were unable to make use of the items you shipped to us.

NOTE: यहाँ noun ‘candidates’ के पहले article ‘the’ का प्रयोग करना उचित नहीं है क्योंकि इस noun का प्रयोग यहाँ general sense में हुआ है, specific में नहीं. यहाँ ‘candidates’ का अभिप्राय किसी भी परीक्षा में बैठने वाले सभी candidates से है.

2. Replace ‘is still not able’ by ‘still is not able’ in part ‘C’. ये पढ़िए:

नकारात्मक (negative) sentences/clauses में ‘still’ शब्द का प्रयोग ये बताने के लिए करते हैं कि जारी (continuing) स्थिति किसी की अपेक्षा के अनुरूप नहीं है या फिर वो हैरानी में डालने वाली है. नकारात्मक वाक्यों में इसका प्रयोग किसी बात को बलपूर्वक कहने के लिए भी किया जाता है. ऐसी स्थिति में ‘still’ को helping verb के पहले रखा जाता है; अगर helping verb नहीं दे रखी हो तो इसे main verb के पहले रखा जाता है; जैसे

a) She bought a car two months ago and she still hasn’t learnt driving.
b) I still don’t understand.

3. Replace ‘so’ by ‘well’ in part ‘A’. यहाँ ‘near’ का use एक preposition के रूप में हुआ है. किसी preposition के साथ ‘so’ का use नहीं किया जाता; ‘so’ का use तो adjectives और adverbs के पहले होता है. यहाँ हमने preposition को बलपूर्वक कहना है; ऐसे में इसके साथ शब्द ‘well’ या अन्य शब्दों का use किया जाता है. ‘near’ के साथ preposition ‘to’ का use optional होता है; अर्थात ‘near’ और ‘near to’ दोनों समान रूप से शुद्ध होते हैं.

4. Replace ‘the son’ by ‘my/his/her’ in part ‘B’ क्योंकि family relation के नामों से पहले कोई article use नहीं होता. .

5. Replace ‘knew’by ‘knows’ in part ‘B’. यह एक कभी न समाप्त होने वाला (never ending) तथ्य (fact) है; कभी न समाप्त होने वाले तथ्यों के लिए Present Simple Tense use किया जाता है बेशक reporting verb का tense past में हो.

6. Replace ‘truth’ by ‘the truth’ in part ‘A’ क्योंकि noun ‘truth’ के पहले हमेशा article ‘the’ का use आवश्यक होता है. यहाँ phrase ‘in the matter’ का use बिल्कुल सही हुआ है. किसी action/activity के लिए इस phrase का use करने के लिए preposition ‘in’ का use किया जाता है, हम देख रहे हैं हैं कि इस घटना में action ‘took’ use हुआ है.

जब कोई action/activity नहीं होती तो ‘the matter’ के पहले preposition ‘on’ का use किया जाता है; जैसे

What is your opinion on this matter? (no action involved)

NOTE: हम जानते हैं कि verb ‘know’ का use continuous tenses में नहीं होता; परन्तु ‘know’ को जब एक gerund (ing form working as a noun) के रूप में use किया जाता है तो, या फिर एक participle (ing form working as an adjective) के रूप में use किया जाता है तो फिर verb ‘know’ अपना रूप ‘knowing’ में बदल लेती है. दिए गये वाक्य में ‘knowing’ एक participle है जो pronoun ‘he’ को qualify कर रही है. ‘Know’ का verb के रूप में एक example देखिये:

INCORRECT: I am knowing him.
CORRECT. I know him.

7. Replace ‘my’ by ‘our’ in part ‘C’. ध्यान रखें कि किसी भी सम्पति पर मालिकाना हक पति और पत्नी दोनों का ही होता है.

8. Replace ‘fools’ by ‘a fool’ in part ‘A’. Verb ‘is’ एक singular verb होती है; अतः इसके subject को भी singular ही होना चाहिए. लेकिन verb ‘is’ का subject ‘fools’ है जो कि plural form में है; अतः इसको ‘a fool’ से बदले जाने की आवश्यकता है.

NOTE: Verb ‘holdeth’ एक ऐसी verb है जिसका उपयोग पुरानी English में हुआ करता था. इसके स्थान पर अब ‘holds’ का use होता है.

Translation in Hindi: एक मूर्ख आदमी भी बुद्धिमान ही माना जाता है अगर वो शांति बनाये रखे.

9. Replace ‘far’ by ‘far too’ or ‘too’ in part ‘A’. adjective ‘arrogant’ की यहाँ degree positive degree है; Positive degree के adjectives के पहले ‘far’ का use नहीं होता जब इनके साथ ‘to + infinitive’ (here ‘to learn’) का use हुआ हो; जैसे

INCORRECT: It is far early to judge.
CORRECT: It is far too early to judge. OR It is too early to judge.

10. No error. ‘A lot of’ भी सही है लेकिन ‘much’ पहले से ही सही है; अर्थात वाक्य पहले से ही शुद्ध है.

11. Replace ‘situates’ by ‘is situated’ in part ‘C’. Verb ‘situate’ एक transitive verb होती है, अतः इसके साथ कोई object होना चाहिए, preposition नहीं. इसलिए इस verb को यहाँ passive voice में use किये जाने की आवश्यकता है. किसी Passive Voice के वाक्य में उस वाक्य का subject ही वास्तव में verb का object होता है.

12. Replace arouse easily by are easily aroused in part ‘B’. Verb ‘arouse’ एक transitive verb होती है; अतः इसका कोई न कोई object होना चाहिए. वाक्य में इसका कोई object दिया ही नहीं है; इसलिए इसको passive voice में बदले जाने की आवश्यकता है. .

13. No error. जब हम किसी को किसी घटना (event) विशेष के लिए जैसे किसी party में, किसी wedding, आदि में  invite करते हैं तो ‘invite to’ use करते हैं; जब हम किसी को किसी ऐसी activities जो किसी घटना (event) में होती हैं जैसे dinner, drink, आदि के लिए invite करते हैं तो ‘invite for’ का use करते हैं.

कुछ उदाहरण देखिये:

a) You’re invited to my wedding.
b) You’re invited for cake and ice cream.
c) I was invited to a drinking party.
d) I was invited for a drink.

Compare:
a) Sooraj invited me for lunch.(= सूरज मुझे simply lunch खाने के लिए बुलाता है.)
b) Sooraj invited me to lunch. (= सूरज मुझे एक ‘lunch party’ के लिए बुलाता है.)

14. Replace most of the people by most people in part ‘A’. यहाँ इस वाक्य में जनसाधारण (people in general) की बात हो रही है; किन्ही खास तरह के लोगों की नहीं. जनसाधारण  (general references) के लिए  nouns के तुरंत पहले  ‘all/most/both’, आदि को रखा जाता है, परन्तु विशेष सन्दर्भों (specific reference)  के लिए इन शब्दों के बाद preposition ‘of’ का use जरूरी है; जैसे

a) In Delhi all people do not use a car. (general reference)
b) All of the Americans I met were very friendly. (specific reference)

INCORRECT: I like all the kinds of music.
CORRECT: I like all kinds of music.

INCORRECT: All of the children learn to speak naturally.
CORRECT: All children learn to speak naturally.

15. Replace ‘for playing’ by ‘to play’ in part ‘C’. कोई उद्देश्य (purpose) बताने के लिए यदि verb ‘go’ के बाद कोई noun दी गयी हो तो preposition ‘for’ का use किया जाता है; और  noun की अपेक्षा कोई activity दी गयी हो तो ‘t0 + V1’ का use किया जाता है; जैसे

a) He goes for a morning walk daily. (‘Walk’ is noun here; so we have used ‘for’ before it.)
b) He went to the park for a walk today. (‘Walk’ is noun here; so we have used ‘for’ before it.)
c) He went to the park to jog today. (‘Jog’ is an activity here,; so we have used ‘to’ before it.)

16. Replace ‘is developed’ by ‘is developing’ or any other suitable tense in part ‘A’.

17. Place the article ‘the’ before BJP in part ‘B’ क्योंकि political parties के नामों से पहले article ‘the’ का use आवश्यक होता है; जैसे .

the Congress Party, the Bhaartiya Janta Party, the Janta Dal, the B.S.P

18. No error. अगर किसी व्यक्ति के popular होने की बात हो रही है तो preposition ‘among’ अथवा ‘with’ use किया जाता है; और अगर किसी वस्तु या किसी विचार (thing/idea) के popular होने की बात हो रही है तो preposition ‘among’ use किया जाता है; ‘with’ नहीं; जैसे

She is popular among her students. (‘She’ is used for people.)
= She is popular with her students.

INCORRECT: This policy is popular with the workers. (POLICY is a thing/idea.)
CORRECT: This policy is popular among the workers.

19. Replace ‘which name’ by ‘the name of which’ or ‘whose name’ in part ‘B’. ‘Whose’ possessive case होता है ‘who’ का और इसे मनुष्यों, पशुओं, और निर्जीव वस्तुओं सभी के लिए किया जाता है; जैसे

a) He’s marrying a girl whose family don’t seem to like him. (possessive of ‘girl’)
b) She has a dog whose colour is white. (possessive of dog, an animal, or we can also say the colour of which’)
c) A triangle whose all sides are equal is called an equilateral triangle. (possessive of ‘triangle’, a thing, or we can also say ‘all sides of which’)
d) Look at the setting sun whose rays have reddened the sky. (possessive of ‘sun’, or we can also say ‘the rays of which’)

20. Replace ‘friend’ by ‘friends’ in part ‘A’. ‘One of’ के साथ कोई भी noun या pronoun plural form में use की जाती है.

NOTE: ‘Both — and’ एक conjunction of pair है. Conjunctions of pair में हमेशा उस conjunction के दोनों ही शब्दों के बाद में एक ही तरह की grammatical items use होती हैं; अर्थात या तो दोनों ही noun होती हैं, या दोनों ही verb होti हैं, या दोनों ही adjective होते हैं, आदि.  इसलिए क्योंकि noun ‘novelist’ के पहले article ‘A’ का use है तो दूसरी noun ‘poet’ के पहले भी article ‘A’ का use होगा.

21. Insert I/we/he/she/they saw before ‘the houses’ in part ‘B’.

क्योंकि कोई participle एक  adjective का कार्य करता है इसलिए इसको noun या  pronoun की आवश्यकता पड़ती है जिसको ये qualify कर सके. यहाँ participle ‘standing’ के लिए कोई noun या pronoun नहीं है. इसके अतिरिक्त उस noun या pronoun के लिए verb भी चाहिए. अतः ‘the houses’ के पहले I/we/he/she/they saw का use होगा.

INCORRECT: Walking in the garden, a tree fell down.
CORRECT: While I was walking in the garden, a tree fell down.

[ऊपर दिए गये वाक्य में ‘walking’ एक participle है.  Participle verb की एक form होता है जो एक adjective का कार्य करता है; अतः qualify करने के लिए इसकी कोई noun या pronoun होनी चाहिए. लेकिन जैसा की तुम देख रहे हो ऊपर दिए गये वाक्य में ऐसा है नहीं. स्पष्ट है की ‘tree’ तो वह noun हो नहीं सकती क्योंकि कोई tree चल नहीं सकता.]

Some more such examples

INCORRECT: Being a rainy day, I did not go out.
CORRECT: It being a rainy day, I did not go out.

INCORRECT: Being too costly for him, he could not buy the car.
CORRECT: The car being too costly for him, he could not buy it.

NOTE: लेकिन कभी-कभी participle के subject को लिखने की आवश्यकता नहीं होती क्योंकि वह understood होता है; जैसे

Being ill, I could not attend the meeting.

[इस वाक्य में हमें participle BEING के subject को लिखने की आवश्यकता नहीं है क्योंकि इसका subject ‘I’ यहाँ understood है.]

22. Replace ‘not’ by ‘ none’ or ‘no’ in part ‘C’. जब किसी व्यक्ति अथवा वस्तु के बारे कुछ हैरान कर देने की कोई बात होती है और हम उसके बारे में वो बात बलपूर्वक कहना चाहते हैं तो ‘none other than’ अथवा ‘no other than’ का use होता है; जैसे

He called together all his employees and announced that the manager was none other than his son.

23. Place the article ‘the’ before ‘greater’ in part ‘C’. दिए गये वाक्य में दो  बातों ‘study’ करने और कीड़ों-मकोड़ों के प्रति आकर्षण होने में समानांतर बढ़ोतरी है (parallel increase) है. Parallel increase में दोनों comparative degrees के पहले article ‘the’ का use होता है; जैसे

a) The more you earn, the more you spend.
b) The colder it becomes, the hungrier I get.
c) The more kind you are towards others, the more kind they are likely to be towards you.

Translation in Hindi: वह कीड़ों-मकोड़ों की और आकर्षित था और जितना भी अधिक उसने उनकी आदतों के बारे में पढ़ा उसका आकर्षण और अधिक होता गया.

24. Replace couldn’t meet by have not been able to in part ‘B’. जब ‘since’ या ‘for’ किसी time को बताते हैं तो या तो Present Perfect Tense का use किया जाता है या Past Perfect Tense का. लेकिन दिए गये sentence के सन्दर्भ (context) के अनुसार यहाँ Present Perfect Tense की आवश्यकता है. ‘Since my marriage’ = मेरी शादी के समय से अब तक

25. Replace ‘to going’ by ‘to go’ in part ‘B’. दिए गये वाक्य के दूसरे clause he needed money …. में ‘need’ main verb है. ‘Need’ जब main verb होती है तो इसके बाद में full infinitive (TO + V1) का use होता है.

Solution with explanation (in English)

1. Replace ‘with’ by ‘of’ in part ‘C’. Make use of something is an idiom which means to utilize something; e.g.

a) Can you make use of these papers?
b) We were unable to make use of the items you shipped to us.

NOTE: The article ‘the’ cannot be put before the noun ‘candidates’ as its use here is in general sense, not specific. Here ‘candidates’ means all the candidates who sit in an exam anytime.

2. Replace is still not able by STILL IS NOT ABLE in part ‘C’. Read this:

In a negative clause, we sometimes use ‘still’ to show that the continuing situation is not desired or is surprising. We can also use ‘still’ in a negative clause for emphasis. In that case ‘still’ comes in front of the helping verb or the verb if helping verb is not given; e.g.

a) She bought a car two months ago and she still hasn’t learnt driving.
b) I still don’t understand.

3. Replace ‘so’ by ‘well’ in part ‘A’. ‘Near’ is a preposition here. We don’t use ‘so’ with a preposition, rather ‘so’ is used before adjectives and adverbs. To emphasize a preposition use of ‘well’ is quite correct, though some other words are also possible. Use of ‘to’ with ‘near’ is optional, means both ‘near’ and ‘near to’ are equally correct.

4. Replace ‘the son’ by ‘my/his/her’ in part ‘B’ as we can’t use an article before the names of family relation.

5. Replace ‘knew’ by ‘knows’ in part ‘B’. It’s a perpetual (never ending) fact, so you can only use a verb in the present tense even if the reporting verb is in the past tense.

6. Replace ‘truth’ by ‘the truth’ in part ‘A’ as the noun ‘truth’ always takes the article ‘the’. Use of the phrase ‘in the matter’ is quite correct here. When there is some action/activity is involved we use the preposition ‘in’ with ‘the matter’; here you see action ‘took’ is involved in the incidence.

When there is no action involved we use the preposition ‘on’ with ‘the matter’; eg.

What is your opinion on this matter? (no action involved)

NOTE: We don’t use the verb ‘know’ in a continuous tense, but when ‘know’ is used as a gerund (ing form working as a noun) or as a participle (ing form working as an adjective) we can use ‘know’ as ‘knowing’. In the given sentence above ‘knowing’ is a participle qualifying the pronoun ‘he’. See an example of ‘know’ as a verb below:

INCORRECT: I am knowing him.
CORRECT. I know him.

7. Replace ‘my’ by ‘our’ in part ‘C’. It’s understood that any property belongs to both husband and wife.

8. Replace ‘fools’ by ‘a fool’ in part ‘A’. Verb ‘is’ इस a singular verb; therefore its subject should also be in the singular, but here its subject is ‘fools’, which is plural in form. Hence it needs to be converted into the singular, means it will be ‘a fool’’ here.

NOTE: Verb ‘holdeth’ was used to be used in old English; now we say it as ‘holds’.

Translation in Hindi: एक मूर्ख आदमी भी बुद्धिमान ही माना जाता है अगर वो शांति बनाये रखे.

9. Replace ‘far’ by ‘far to’ or ‘too’ in part ‘A’. adjective ‘arrogant’ is in positive degree. We don’t use ‘far’ before adjectives in positive degree when an ‘to + infinitive’ (here ‘to learn’) is given; e.g.

INCORRECT: It is far early to judge.
CORRECT: It is far too early to judge. OR It is too early to judge.

10. No error. Use of ‘a lot of’  is also correct, but the sentence is already correct.

11. Replace ‘situates’ by ‘is situated’ in part ‘C’. ‘Situate’ is a transitive verb, so you can’t use a preposition with it, it must be an object instead. Therefore we need to make this verb in the passive form. In the passive voice subject of the sentence/clause is the object of the verb.

12. Replace arouse easily by are easily aroused in part ‘B’. Verb ‘arouse’ is a transitive verb, therefore it must have an object. In the sentence there is no object given, so we need to make it in the passive voice.

13. No error. We use ‘invite to’ when we invite someone to a particular event; e.g. invite to a party, invite to a wedding whereas we use ‘invite for’ when when inviting someone for actions, objects, and/or activities that will happen at an event; e.g. invite for dinner, invite for a drink.

See some examples of their use:

a) You’re invited to my wedding.
b) You’re invited for cake and ice cream.
c) I was invited to a drinking party.
d) I was invited for a drink.

Compare:
a) She invited him for lunch.(= She invited him simply in order to eat lunch.)
b) She invited him to lunch. (= She invited him to attend the event of having lunch with her, means a lunch party.)

14. Replace most of the people by most people in part ‘A’. Here we are talking about people in general, not any specific kinds of people. For general references we put ‘all/most/both’, etc. immediately before the noun, for specific reference use of the preposition ‘of’ becomes necessary after these words; e.g.

a) In Delhi all people do not use a car. (general reference)
b) All of the Americans I met were very friendly. (specific reference)

INCORRECT: I like all the kinds of music.
CORRECT: I like all kinds of music.

INCORRECT: All of the children learn to speak naturally.
CORRECT: All children learn to speak naturally.

15. Replace ‘for playing’ by ‘to play’ in part ‘C’. With the use of the verb ‘go’, we use ‘for’ before a noun; and ‘to + V1’ before an activity; e.g.

a) He goes for a morning walk daily. (‘Walk’ is noun here; so we have used ‘for’ before it.)
b) He went to the park for a walk today. (‘Walk’ is noun here; so we have used ‘for’ before it.)
c) He went to the park to jog today. (‘Jog’ is an activity here,; so we have used ‘to’ before it.)

16. Replace ‘is developed’ by ‘is developing’ or any other suitable tense in part ‘A’.

17. Place the article ‘the’ before BJP in part ‘B’ as ‘the’ is necessary before names of political parties; e.g.

the Congress Party, the Bhaartiya Janta Party, the Janta Dal, the B.S.P

18. No error. If a person is popular we use either ‘among’ or ‘with’, if a thing is thing/idea is popular we can only use ‘among’, not ‘with’; e.g.

She is popular among her students. (‘She’ is used for people.)
= She is popular with her students.

INCORRECT: This policy is popular with the workers. (POLICY is a thing/idea.)
CORRECT: This policy is popular among the workers.

19. Replace ‘which name’ by ‘the name of which’ or ‘whose name’ in part ‘B’. WHOSE is possessive of ‘who’ and is used for human beings, animals and also lifeless things; e.g.

a) He’s marrying a girl whose family don’t seem to like him. (possessive of ‘girl’)
b) She has a dog whose colour is white. (possessive of dog, an animal, or we can also say ‘the colour of which’)
c) A triangle whose all sides are equal is called an equilateral triangle. (possessive of ‘triangle’, a thing, or we can also say ‘all sides of which’)
d) Look at the setting sun whose rays have reddened the sky. (possessive of ‘sun’, or we can also say ‘the rays of which’)

20. Replace ‘friend’ by ‘friends’ in part ‘A’. After ‘one of’ the noun or the pronouns are used in the plural.

NOTE: ‘Both — and’ is a conjunction of pair. In conjunctions of pair we use the same grammatical item after both the words of that pair, means if the noun ‘novelist’ has the article ‘A’ then it’s also needs to placed before the noun ‘poet’.

21. Insert I/we/he/she/they saw before ‘the houses’ in part ‘B’.

As a participle does work of an adjective it must have a noun/pronoun to describe. Here the participle ‘standing’ is not describing any noun or pronoun. Also there should also be a verb for that noun/pronoun. Therefore it will be I/we/he/she/they saw here.

INCORRECT: Walking in the garden, a tree fell down.
CORRECT: While I was walking in the garden, a tree fell down.

[‘Walking’ in this sentence is a present participle (A verb form working as an adjective), so it must have a noun/pronoun to describe. But you’ll see it’s missing that. Of course the ‘tree’ is not that noun as a tree cannot walk.]

Some more such examples

INCORRECT: Being a rainy day, I did not go out.
CORRECT: It being a rainy day, I did not go out.

INCORRECT: Being too costly for him, he could not buy the car.
CORRECT: The car being too costly for him, he could not buy it.

NOTE: But sometimes we do not need to mention the subject of a participle as it’s already understood; e.g.

Being ill, I could not attend the meeting.

[In this sentence we do not need to mention the subject with the participle ‘being’ as it’s understood that ‘I’ itself is the subject here.]

22. Replace ‘not’ by ‘none’ or ‘no’ in part ‘C’. When we want to emphasize the name of a person or thing when something about that person or thing is surprising in a particular situation we use ‘none other than’ or ‘no other than’; e.g.

He called together all his employees and announced that the manager was none other than his son.

23. Place the article ‘the’ before ‘greater’ in part ‘C’. This sentence is an example of parallel increase in two things – More study greater fascination. Parallel increase is expressed by ‘the comparative degree — the comparative degree’; e.g.

a) The more you earn, the more you spend.
b) The colder it becomes, the hungrier I get.
c) The more kind you are towards others, the more kind they are likely to be towards you.

Translation in Hindi: वह कीड़ों-मकोड़ों की और आकर्षित था और जितना भी अधिक उसने उनकी आदतों के बारे में पढ़ा उसका आकर्षण और अधिक होता गया.

24. Replace couldn’t meet by have not been able to in part ‘B’. When ‘since’ or ‘for’ refer to a time we use either the Present Perfect Tense or the Past Perfect Tense. But according to the context of the sentence it should be the Present Perfect Tense.

25. Replace ‘to going’ by ‘to go’ in part ‘B’. In the second clause he needed money …. NEED is the main verb. When ‘need’ is the main verb we use the full infinitive (to + V1) with it if a verb form is needed.
