QUESTION: 1

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

His parents don't allow him _____after ten o'clock.

Solution: The infinitive verb is a verb with the word 'to' in front of it. This verb is always just a verb. There is no - ed, no - ing, no - s at the end of the verb. Thus, options A, C, and D are wrong according to the rule. The correct option is B since 'to' is in front of the phrasal verb 'stay up'. Hence, the sentence would become: His parents don't allow him to stay up after ten o'clock.
QUESTION: 2

Fill in the blanks with the appropriate gerund or infinitive from the options given below:

I'm sorry but I didn't mean_________your feelings.

Solution: The infinitive verb is a verb with the word 'to' in front of it. This verb is always just a verb. There is no - ed, no - ing, no - s at the end of the verb. Thus, options A, C, and D are wrong according to the rule. The correct option is B since 'to' is in front of the verb 'hurt'. Hence, the sentence would become: I'm sorry but I didn't mean to hurt your feelings.
QUESTION: 3

Rearrange the following words and phrases to form a meaningful sentence:

are / Indian temples / a store house / Indian art / of

Solution: Indian temples are the main focus in the sentence, they are being talked about, as indicated by the verb are. Thus, Indian temples are the subject of the sentence. The rest of the sentence is what is being talked about the subject, i.e., it is the predicate. In Option A, the subject and the predicate are arranged in a manner that makes complete sense and, thus, is correct which the statements of the other options fail to do.
QUESTION: 4

Complete the answer to this question with the correct form of 'able to':

I wanted to buy some tomatoes. The first shop I went to didn't have any, but I ___________get some in the next shop.

Solution: The option C is correct. The sentence speaks about the past tense. Option A and B rule out since they are used with present tense. 'Were able to ' is used with plural noun in past tense. Thus, 'was able to' is the correct answer. With T, was is used.
QUESTION: 5

Fill with a suitable modal auxiliary:

I looked very carefully and I________see a figure in the distance.

Solution: 'Could' indicates past ability. 'Can' indicates ability / capacity at the given point in time. Will' indicates promise / voluntary action. 'Must' indicates obligation/ necessity. Here, the past ability to be able to 'see' is mentioned. So, the correct option is A) could.
QUESTION: 6

Complete the following dialogue by choosing the correct form of the verb:

I think the blue ones_______better with the jacket

Solution: When a subject is singular, the verb that follows is also singular, and when the subject is plural, the verb is also plural. This agreement between the subject and verb is called the subject-verb agreement. In the sentence, "I think the blue ones" is the subject, where 'ones' is the main subject, it's plural, hence we use a plural verb. Singular verbs generally end with s, whereas plural verbs do not end with an s. For example, in The bluejacket goes better with these pants', 'the bluejacket' is singular and so is the verb 'goes' that ends with s. Here the subject is plural, hence 'go' will be used, 'go' is a plural verb, so option A is correct and B is incorrect. Were having gone' is grammatically incorrect, 'having' is a gerund or a participle, and 'gone' is the past participle of the verb 'go', as the phrase is grammatically incorrect, option C is wrong. 'Has gone' is irrelevant here, because 'has' is a singular verb whereas the subject is plural, hence option D is incorrect.
QUESTION: 7

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

I felt someone________me on the shoulder but when I turned around, there was no one there.

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

An auxiliary verb is a verb which is used in the formation of tenses, moods, tones, etc. Option A is correct as felt indicates the use of tapping.

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

The correct answer is A) tapping

QUESTION: 8

Identify the verbs and say whether they are Gerunds or Present Participle:

Do you like smoking cigarettes?

Solution: A verb form which functions as a noun, ending in -ing is a Gerund. On the other hand, the form of a verb, ending in -ing English, which is used in forming continuous tenses is a present participle.

The two options, A and B are wrong because they do not end in -ing

Now option C is given as present participle. The verb over here is not used as a

continuous tense which makes it the wrong option.

Option D is correct because "smoking" is a verb in this sentence, which functions as a noun.

Option D is the correct option.

QUESTION: 9

Fill in the blank with the most suitable auxiliary verb:

The boy with the black shoes_________my cousin.

Solution: The sentence talks about 'the boy' indicating that there is one boy with 'black shoes' which indicates that there is more than one shoe. The sentence is in the third person singular and so the correct word to fill in the blank is option B) 'is'. Option A) 'am' is used for the first person, option C) 'do' is irrelevant in the given context, and option D) 'are' is used with plural words.
QUESTION: 10

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

Was it hot yesterday? Yes, it ________.

Solution: The context refers to an action completed in the past. It requires a past tense form of the base verb 'be'. "Is" in option A is incorrect as "is" is used to indicate the simple present. "Was" in option B is correct as "was" is used to indicate the simple past tense. It correctly indicates the weather yesterday (past). "Were" in option C is incorrect as it is used to indicate the simple past of 'be'. However, we need the simple past of the auxiliary verb 'is'. "Wasn't" in option D is incorrect as the answer to the interrogative statement begins with 'yes'. Thus, it indicates agreement over the question. So, the weather was hot. Therefore, option B is the correct answer.
QUESTION: 11

Choose the correct verb from the options given below:

Many a man___________ succumbed to the evils of life.

Solution: In this particular sentence we can see that it is third-person and it is in singular form and present tense.

Were is a plural verb for past tense

Have is the root verb and is generally used alongside the pronouns I / You / We / Ye and They and plural noun. It is the wrong option

Has is used alongside the pronouns He / She / It and Who and singular. It is the correct option

are is a plural verb for present tense.

Option C is correct

QUESTION: 12

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

I'm afraid of__________mistakes.

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 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 D: Making is a gerund as it plays dual role when substituted in the blank Option A and C: Make it in the present tense. It is the wrong option Option B: Made in the past tense again. It is the wrong option Option D is correct

QUESTION: 13

Choose the correct form of the verb to complete the sentence:

I ________English for seven years.

Solution: In order to fill in the blank with the correct form of the verb, let's understand the tense of the sentence.

The words 'since seven years' explain to us that the action started in the past and is still continuing in the present, and is unfinished. Hence, we must use present perfect continuous tense.

Option B - 'Have learned' is the present perfect tense. Here the action is completed. The given sentence states that the action is still continuing. Hence, option B is incorrect. Option C - 'Have learnt' is grammatically not correct as we use the third form/past participle form of the verb with 'have' to form present perfect tense. As we need the present perfect continuous tense, we can't use 'have learnt'. Hence, option C is incorrect. Option D - 'Learned' is the past form of the verb 'learn', which is used when the action is completed. Hence, option D is incorrect.

Option A - 'Have been learning' can be used here, as the words have been' explain to us that the action started in the past and the participle form 'learning' explains to us that the action is continuing in the present and is unfinished. Hence, option A is the correct answer.

'I have been learning English for seven years.'

QUESTION: 14

Fill in the blank with a suitable verb:

5280 feet__________a mile.

Solution: A distance taken together as a reference is considered as Singular and so the answer will be the singular verb 'is'.
QUESTION: 15

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

This holiday is worth________

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: Celebrates is in the present perfect tense. Both of them don't behave like a noun.

Option B and D: Celebrated in the past tense again. Both are wrong options

Option C: Celebrating is a gerund as it behaves as a noun in the sentence

Option E: To celebrate is in the future tense and it does not act as a noun. It is the wrong

option

Option C is correct

QUESTION: 16

Fill in the blank with the most suitable auxiliary verb:

Four children ________playing in the playground.

Solution: Auxiliary verbs are helping verbs that add some meaning to the clauses in which they appear. They almost always(except in some cases) appear with the verb.

The given sentence talks about four children and therefore the auxiliary verb that we need to use to fill in the blank must be in the plural form. Therefore, options A, B, and D are incorrect as they are singular verbs used in different tenses and in first and second person participles. The correct answer is option C) 'were' and the complete sentence is: Four children were playing in the playground.

QUESTION: 17

Fill in the correct form of the verb that is given in the bracket:

I________someone calling my name from within the tunnel, (hear)

Solution: A verb is used to express an occurrence, action, or state. It is the grammatical center of the predicate in a sentence. Option C)heard is correct as only past participle form of the verb can be used (simple past tense is used to show an act of the past). The other options are wrong as the action of hearing his name is finished and is not continued in the present or happens in the present. The correct answer is C)heard.
QUESTION: 18

Change the underlined verb into past tense:

We plan to go to the movies after school.

Solution: Regular verbs are those whose past tense and past participles are formed by adding a -d or an -ed to the end of the verb.

Option B is correct. In some cases, the last consonant in the verb must be doubled before adding the -ed ending. Thus, the past tense of "plan" is "planned" where the ending consonant "n" is doubled before adding the -ed ending. Going by this explanation, option A is incorrect.

Option C is incorrect since no change has been made to the verb. "Plan" is present tense and not past.

Option D is incorrect as the correct answer is B

QUESTION: 19

Fill in the blank with the appropriate option:

He is very strong and brave. I am certain he________fight to the finish.

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 expresses the mood of certainty and assurance. Therefore option D is correct.

Whereas option A and B shows possibility and option C expresses ability

QUESTION: 20

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

She punished the child for _________lies.

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: Telling is a gerund as it plays a dual role

Option B: Tell is in the present tense. It is the wrong option

Option C: told is the past tense again. It is the wrong option

Option D: Tells is in the perfect present tense and it does not act as a noun.

Option A is correct
