Continuing from our previous post on Error Identification in Sentences, let us first discuss the answers of the sample questions of that post :
1. No error.
2. B. Pronoun “I” is followed by the verb “has” which makes the sentence incorrect. In the correct sentence, “have” will replace “has”.
3. B. The word “has” should be replaced by “has been”.
4. B. The sentence has redundant words. There is no need to put “and jumping” in the sentence.
5. A. “towards” should be replaced by “to” since one has to go “to” someone to ask about something from him.
Now let us practice from more sample questions on error identification.
These sentences may contain errors in grammar, usage, choice of words, or idioms. Either there is just one error in a sentence, or the sentence is correct. Some words or phrases are underlined and lettered; everything else in the sentence is correct. If an underlined word or phrase is incorrect, choose that letter; if the sentence is correct, select “No error”.
1. Every (A) human being (B) is selfish, some more (C) and some less (D). No Error.
2. The terrace of old fashioned (A) houses accommodating (B) twenty families have been (C) electrified (D). No Error.
3. Roger never has (A), and he never will (B) forget (C) the wrong done (D) to him. No Error.
4. Let me tell you that (A) this is the horse which (B) I saw (C) yesterday (D). No Error.
5. The teacher announced (A) that the boy needs not to (B) go to (C) the Principal (D). No Error.
