B. The district collector announced a gallantry award and financial aid for his family.
C. A soldier died fighting in the battlefield.
D. The money was promptly disbursed from the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund.
Sol. When two events in past occur immediately one after another, the first event is expressed with Past Perfect Tense while the another event with Simple Past Tense.
Hence option (a) improves the sentence.
Sol. Glutton is an excessively greedy eater.
Vagabond is a person who wanders from place to place without a home or job.
Jockey is a person who rides in horse races, especially as a profession.
Sol. The correctly spelt word is “Catalogue” which means a complete list of items, typically one in alphabetical or other systematic order.
Sol. This is a first conditional sentence. We use the first conditional when we talk about future situations we believe are real or possible.
In first conditional sentences, the structure is usually: if/when + present simple >> will + infinitive.
Thus replace “would not be” with “will not be”.
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. Like a dying duck in a thunderstorm means having a dejected or hopeless expression.
Sol. The correctly spelt word is “Sovereignty” which means the power of a country to control its own government.
