Grammar questions. pls help!Also give me explainations for answers.

Read each sentence to find if there is any grammatical error in it. If there is any error, it will be only one part of the sentence. The number or alphabet of that part is your answer.(Disregard punctuation errors if any)

  1. I never have / visited / or intend to visit / foreign countries /
    A B C D

  2. The clothes / were neatly / hanged /on the cloth line.
    A B C D

Directions for Questions 13-15: One of the four sentences given in each question is grammatically wrong . Find the incorrect sentence.

  1. A) Our followers are but a handful. B) Neither he nor I was there. C) Many a glorious deeds were done. D) Everyone of the boys loves to ride.

I suggest you check the original, as you seem to have made some typos here. There is more than one error in some exercises.
What do you think the correct answers are, Sush?

Please check this link and go through question nos 11, 12, 13, 14, 15.
vyoms.com/placement-papers/d … 1-7034.asp

The test has errors:
12. ‘cloth line’ should be ‘clothes line’
13d. ‘Everyone’ should be ‘Every one’
15b. ‘younger to’ should be ‘younger than’

Given that there are errors in those questions, I wouldn’t be surprised to find other random errors in other questions either.

Why did you post the questions here and ask for help to complete them when the answer key is given on that page?

Thank you for the help provided :slight_smile:

=0… beeesneees is there a different between everyone and every one? what is it?

Use ‘everyone’ as a pronoun to mean all the people (in a group).
Examples:
Do you think everyone will want to come to the party? (all the people)
She wants everyone to leave comments on her blog. (all the people)
Hello, everyone! (all the people)

Use ‘every one’ as a noun to indicate each person or thing.
Examples:
Every one of the students has a question about the grammar. (each student)
My boss told every one of the employees himself. (each employee)
When I opened the box every one of the eggs was broken. (each egg)

11 nor intend
12 clothes line
13 every one
14 to a duel
15 younger than me

As I indicated in the above message, ‘clothes line’ and ‘every one’ are unintentional mistakes. They are not the deliberate mistakes. You haven’t found all the deliberate errors in this flawed test. If you go to the link provided by Sush you will see the ‘correct’ answers.

Ah, I see

hanged versus hung
Many glorious deeds

  1. I never have / visited / or intend to visit / foreign countries
    a. I never have intend to visit foreign countries. (wrong)
    b. I never have intended to visit foreign countries.(OK)
    c. I never have visited foreign countries . (OK)

Are my observations correct?

Although your observations are correct, you don’t seem to understand the question, Allifathima:

Question 11 is one sentence split into four parts. There is a mistake in ONE of the parts. In the sentence:
I never have visited or intend to visit foreign countries.
You have to decide whether the mistake is:
a) I never have
b) visited
c) or intend to visit
d) foreign countries.

I thought the correct answer should be
" I have never visited or intend to visit foreign countries". So, I felt the mistake is in the “A” part of the sentence but the answer is given as “c”. Can you please explain me where I’ve gone wrong?

I also need help for the following sentences:

  1. He challenged me for a duel.
  2. He is the eldest man of this village.
    Can you please point out the mistakes in the above sentences and give the correct answers.

@Beeesneees: I wanted the explanations for my questions. That’s why I asked you for help in spite of having the key:)

When you use ‘never’ then it should be combined with ‘nor’ not ‘or’.
The mistake is the word ‘or’ in part (C).
I never have visited nor intend to visit foreign countries.

The word order
have never /never have
is interchangeable in part A. Both placements are correct.

You challenge someone to a duel, not for one.

He is the oldest/eldest man in this village.
