Sol. Subject + V2(past form of verb)+ Object……………..+ ago.
Sol. When ‘just now’ means a very short time ago. It takes past form of the verb i.e.V2.
Sol. ‘Never’, ‘Seldom’, ‘Always’ are used before the ‘Main verb’. Also the sentence is in ‘passive voice’. Hence option C is the correct choice.
Sol. Sentences beginning with ‘To such a point, ‘To such a degree’, ‘To such an extent’ take inversion form i.e. “To such a degree + H.V. (auxiliary) +Subject + M.V.” Moreover ‘make a noise’ is the correct idiomatic expression not ‘make noise’.
Sol. Soon means ‘a short time after then’ i.e. in or after a short time.
Early means ‘near the beginning of a period of time we are talking about’. Early does not mean soon. Moreover, comparative degree is not needed.
While we use quickly to refer to the speed with which something is done.
Hence option D is the correct choice.
Sol. We use rather with more and less + an adjective or adverb to make a comparison with something. Fairly is used with ‘pleasant positive degree of adjectives’ while ‘absolutely quite’ is a wrong usage.
Sol. ‘Comparatively + Positive Degree of Adjective’ is the correct grammatical usage.
Sol. ‘Major’ is positive degree in form but a ‘superlative degree’ in sense. Hence it doesn’t take ‘more’ or ‘most’ before itself.
Sol. Mitigate: to make something less severe or less unpleasant.
Hence option B is the correct choice.
Sol. Flout is a verb which means openly disregard (a rule, law, or convention).
