(a) Myself and Ram
(b) will take care of
(c) the function on Saturday
(d) No error
Sol. Use ‘I’ in place of myself. Also the proper order will be ‘Ram and I’ as a sentence doesn’t begin with Reflexive Pronoun.
Direction (6-8): In the questions given below, sentences are given with blanks to be filled in with an appropriate word(s). Four alternatives are suggested for each question. Choose the correct alternative out of the four.
Q6. I visit Shimla frequently; however, I have never __________ Kullu.
(a) visited to
(b) been too
(c) been to
(d) went to
Sol. ‘Visit’ when used as a verb doesn’t take any preposition with it. Hence opt out Option A. Also options B and D don’t justify the sentence.
Been to: visited.
Hence option C is the correct choice.
Q7. He was junior __________ me in college and we have been friends since then.
Sol. Junior, Senior, Superior, Anterior etc. take preposition ‘to’.
Q8. While he was working at the construction site, the block of wood suddenly __________ his right shoulder.
(a) was hitting
(b) had hit
(d) was hitted
Sol. Past form of verb is required to justify the tense of the sentence. And ‘hit’ remains same in all its three forms. Hence option C is the correct choice.
Direction (9-11): In the questions given below, choose the word opposite in meaning to the given word.
Sol. Permit: ‘to allow somebody to do something’.
Forbid: ‘to order somebody not to do something’.
Hence both Permit and Forbid are antonyms to each other.
Sol. Insolent: ‘rude and showing lack of respect’.

Hence both Insolent and Submissive are antonyms to each other.
