Your answers are highlighted below.
Question 1
Identify the error in the sentence given below.
A
According to government estimates
B
at least four million tonnes of sugar
C
will have to be imported
D
this year because of a poor monsoon.
E
No error
Question 1 Explanation: 
The fault is in the first part. With the collective noun government, we would have to use a definite article ‘the’. Indefinite articles would have been used if ‘estimate’ word was given instead of ‘estimates’.
Question 2
Identify the error in the sentence given below.
A
The Board's decision has provided
B
employees with the opportunity
C
to acquire up to 100
D
shares by the company.
E
No error
Question 2 Explanation: 
The problem is with the fourth part of the sentence. Here, the meaning that needs to be conveyed is a thing that the company already possesses and owns. So, the correct preposition would be ‘of’ and not ‘by’.
Question 3
Identify the error in the sentence given below.
A
He had telephoned yesterday to
B
ask how much of the youth
C
who attend our classes would be
D
interested in working for a textile company.
E
No error
Question 3 Explanation: 
Youth refers to people on a whole and people are countable. Hence, youth classifies as a countable noun. So, in the second part, instead of ‘how much’ it should be ‘how many’. How much would have been used if the noun was uncountable.
Question 4
Identify the error in the sentence given below.
A
Though he has promoted to
B
the bank's board as a director
C
he continues to carry out
D
all his current responsibilities.
E
No error
Question 4 Explanation: 
The first part of the sentence seems incomplete as passive tone is not used. Therefore, ‘Though he has been promoted..’ needs to be used and not ‘Though he has promoted..’.

A

B
been amended earlier,
C
we could have stopped
D
the transfer of funds.
