QUESTION: 1

Fill in the blank with the most suitable option:

Why did you take such a risk? You______died!

Solution: The correct answer is Option C

COULD HAVE is used to express the consequence of an imagined event.

In the given sentence, the speaker is telling the person the consequence of taking risk -death.

Thus COULD HAVE is the correct answer.

The remaining options are incorrect because:

COULD express ability.

MUST BE expresses certainty.

MAY BE expresses possibility.

QUESTION: 2

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

I__________a bicycle when I was young.

Solution: A verb is used to express an occurrence, action, or state. It is the grammatical centre of the predicate in a sentence.

An auxiliary verb is a verb which is used in the formation of tenses, moods, tones, etc.

Option C is correct as the 'when I was young' indicates that we are talking about the past. Here, the third form is used (had) as an ordinary verb because the main verb is missing. The other options are wrong as no other tense other than simple past can be used.

The correct answer is C had

QUESTION: 3

Choose the option that best corrects the underlined word:

None of the cats is eating their food today.

Solution: When 'none' is followed by of, look at the noun in the of-phrase (object of the preposition). If the object of the preposition is singular, use a singular verb. If the object of the preposition is plural, use a plural verb.

According to the stated rule, option B is the correct answer because the object of the preposition, 'cats', is plural and the plural verb 'are' is to be used for the sentence to be grammatically correct.

Options A, C and D are incorrect because 'was', 'has been' and 'is' are singular verbs. Since the object of the preposition is plural, none of these verbs can be used with it.

QUESTION: 4

Fill in the blank with an appropriate modal denoting a past habit:

I_________smoke but I gave it up last year.

Solution: The sentence informs of a past habit that is not pursued anymore. The modal used to describe past habits is 'used to'.
QUESTION: 5

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate option:

Excuse me,_______you tell me the time?

Solution: The correct answer is Option D

CAN is used to ask the time.

In the given sentence, the speaker is asking the time.

QUESTION: 6

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

She can't stand_______to rock music.

Solution: Gerunds are words that are formed with verbs but act as nouns. Gerunds also at times are seen to end in 'mg'. In this particular sentence, the word in the blank acts as a noun thus becoming the subject of the sentence and also like a verb by taking up the object. This means that in the blank, we would need a gerund.

Option A: Listening is a gerund as it plays dual role when substituted in the blank

Option B and C: Listen is in the present tense. It is the wrong option

Option D: Listens are in the perfect present tense and they do not act as a noun. It is the

wrong option

Option A is correct

QUESTION: 7

Fill in the blanks with the most appropriate words:

___________you going_______wash your car this afternoon?

Solution: A verb is used to express an occurrence, action, or state. It is the grammatical centre of the predicate in a sentence.

An auxiliary verb is a verb which is used in the formation of tenses, moods, tones, etc.

Option B is correct as the subject is you and this afternoon indicates an action that is going to happen. Infinitive shall be used after the gerund as it is followed by the main verb wash which is in its first form.

The other options are wrong as being is used when the subject is I. Too indicates inclusion of something which is not appropriate to be used in the question.

The correct answer is B are/to

QUESTION: 8

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

Peter wants__________a pocket calculator now.

Solution: The given sentence already contains a main verb 'want'. Thus, the answer must be a non-finite verb.

Option A is incorrect, 'uses' is a verb. Having two main verbs in one sentence will make it grammatically incorrect. Thus, it is not the correct answer.

Option B is incorrect, 'likes' is a verb. Having two main verbs in one sentence will make it grammatically incorrect. Thus, it is not the correct answer.

Option C is correct, 'to use' is a non-finite of the infinitive form. Thus, it shows that Peter has to use a pocket calculator now, without making the sentence incorrect. Thus, it is the correct answer.

Option D is incorrect, 'be' is a verb. Having two main verbs in one sentence will make it grammatically incorrect. Thus, it is not the correct answer.

QUESTION: 9

Fill in the blank with the correct option:

He________read and write when he was young.

Solution: He COULD read and write when he was young here, according to the question CAN:- this is used for several purposes

1) sed to express ability

1) used to describe some abilities of the past

MAY:-1) used to ask formal permission for example:- may i come in?

2)used to suggest something that is possible for example:- he may agree with the plan MIGHT:- past form of may

A Will have to

B Must

Solution: A verb is used to express an occurrence, action, or state. It is the grammatical centre of the predicate in a sentence.

An auxiliary verb is a verb which is used in the formation of tenses, moods, tones, etc. Option C is correct as in the end indicates the use of had to.

The other options are wrong as no other tense can be used here.

The correct answer is C had to

QUESTION: 11

Fill in the blank with an appropriate modal denoting ability:

With the help of a dictionary, you_______learn new words easily.

Solution: In this statement, we wish to express 'ability' to learn new words by using a dictionary. So, the correct modal of ability is 'can', 'might', 'would' and 'may' are used to express probabilities.
QUESTION: 12

Fill in the blank with a suitable modal:

l__________take any photographs because I didn't have a camera with me.

Solution: Modal Verbs show us the attitude of the speaker to what is being said or done. The term "modal" means expressing mood and mood is a way to express the attitude of the speaker.

The given sentence is firstly set in past tense and secondly, according to the meaning of the sentence, it expects a mood of impossibility.

Option C is the correct answer because it expresses impossibility or inability in the past. Whereas option A expresses inability in present; option B expresses impossibility in future;

Option D expresses something which is not supposed to happen.

QUESTION: 13

Fill in the blank with the correct option:

_________you give me your pen?

Solution: Modal Verbs show us the attitude of the speaker to what is being said or done. The term "modal" means expressing mood and mood is a way to express the attitude of the speaker.

The usage of modal Verbs differs according to the type of sentences.

Option B is correct because the modal verb "can" shows the question mood of possibility or ability and can be expressed in interrogative sentences as given in the question. Whereas option A, C and D are not used in interrogative sentences. These are generally used in imperative or exclamatory sentences.

QUESTION: 14

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate option:

The teacher told us_______ any mistakes.

Solution: The normal form of a negative infinitive is "not to (verb)", in all contexts. The given context refers to 'make', so the correct usage would be 'not to make'. Hence Option C is the correct answer. We use "don't" when the subject is I, you, we or they. Hence Option A is incorrect. "Not make" and "not made" are grammatically incorrect as the adverb 'not' and the verb 'make/made' is being used without a preposition, which does not make the relationship between the two clear. Hence options C and D are incorrect.
QUESTION: 15

Make a new sentence using the verb given in the bracket:

That car has broken down, (appear)

Solution: The infinitive verb is a verb with the word 'to' in front of it. There is no - ed, no - ing, no - s at the end of this verb. Here, the infinitive verb is used to show the purpose or intention of an action. To' has the same meaning as in order to or so as to signify. Thus, options A, B and D are wrong according to the rule. The correct option is C.
