Sol. Use of article before ‘such a’ is incorrect. We can use such (as a determiner) before a noun phrase to add emphasis. The correct sentence is “She behaves in such a cordial manner that everyone admires her.”
Sol. Repercussion means an unintended consequence of an event or action, especially an unwelcome one.
Reaction means something done, felt, or thought in response to a situation or event.
Sol. The correctly spelt word is “Sovereignty” which means the power of a country to control its own government.
Sol. Juvenile means relating to a young person who is not yet old enough to be considered an adult.
Childish means of, like, or appropriate to a child.
Sol. There is a preposition related error. When ‘differ’ means ‘disagree’, it is usually followed by the preposition ‘with’. So, the correct preposition to use here with ‘differ’ is ‘with’.
Sol. “No sooner…. Than” is a conjunctional pair. No sooner is followed by than, also, just after ‘no sooner’ we use helping verb i.e. the case of inversion applies here. Since the first form of the verb (step in) is used in the subsequent part, hence the helping verb ‘did’ is the correct choice. Thus option C is correct.
Sol. Grotesque means comically or repulsively ugly or distorted.
Attractive means pleasing or appealing to the senses.
Sol. If you describe a person as paddling his own canoe, you mean that he is independent and does not need help from anyone else.
Sol. Like a dying duck in a thunderstorm means having a dejected or hopeless expression.
