Test : English - 5 - Question 1

Direction: Look at the bracketed part of each sentence. Below each sentence is given three possible substitutions for the bracketed part. If one of them (a), (b) or (c) is better than the bracketed part, indicate your response on the Answer Sheet against the corresponding letter (a), (b) or (c). If none of the substitutions improve the sentence, indicate (d) as your response on the Answer Sheet. Thus a ‘No improvement’ response will be signified by the letter (d).

Q. The equipment is (adapted to) cotton industries.

Detailed Solution for Test : English - 5 - Question 1

adapt to:
“Adapt to” generally means that something has changed to fit its own environment.
For example, “People have adapted to the difficult living conditions in the Arctic.”
“Adapt for” is an idiom that suggests to change or adjust something for a new or different purpose
For example: “The vehicle was adapted for off-road travel by the engineering students at University X.”
Thus, an equipment cannot adapt to something on its own.
An equipment is adapted for cotton industries (by us).
