1. The erroneous information/spread rapidly across the nation/and created a stir./NE

Explanation: No error

2. Our guests arrived; / they are sitting / in the garden./ NE

Explanation: Option ‘A’. Replace arrived by have arrived. To describe past events when we think more of their effect in the present time we use the Present Perfect Tense; not the Past simple Tense. The context of the sentence ‘the guests are now sitting in the garden’ suggests that we intend to show effect of a past action in the present time.

3. During an earthquake,/it is advised to take/cover above a table/to save your life.

Explanation: Option ‘C’. Replace above by under. Take cover = to seek shelter from gunfire or any natural calamity. Obviously a person will not seek shelter above something in during an earthquake; therefore it there will be use of the preposition under rather than above.
