SSC Stenographer Error Finding English Questions.

Find the errors in the following sentences:

  • Q.1. You must avoid riding in a crowded bus / or travelling in a metro / during rush hour / as both are quiet unpleasant experiences. CGL 13/8/2021 (Morning)
    • (a) You must avoid riding in a crowded bus
    • (b) during rush hour
    • (c) as both are quiet unpleasant experiences
    • (d) or travelling in a metro

Answer :1 (c) Quiet is an adjective that means with very little or no noise & ‘Quite’ is an adverb that is used for emphasizing something. However, the given sentence does not talk about any sound or noise. Hence, ‘both are quite unpleasant experiences’ is the most appropriate answer.

  • Q.2 Had you / not reached in time, / we will have / lost our lives. CGL 13/8/2021 (Morning)
    • (a) lost our lives
    • (b) not reached in time
    • (c) Had you
    • (d) we will have

Answer :2.(d) “Had + V3 _ would have + V3” is grammatically the correct structure for the given sentence. Hence, ‘we would have’ is the most appropriate answer.

  • Q.3 The woodcutter felled / some trees / with hardly / many effort at all. CGL 13/8/2021 (Afternoon)
    • (a) some trees
    • (b) with hardly
    • (c) many effort at all
    • (d) The woodcutter felled

Answer :3.(c) The phrase ‘hardly any’ means almost none. Similarly, the given sentence states that the woodcutter felled some trees with almost no effort at all. However, ‘many’ will never come with words like hardly, scarcely, barely because these words are of opposite sense. Hence, ‘any effort at all’ is the most appropriate answer.

  • Q.4. The river appears to have / got its name / from the town nearby. CGL 13/8/2021 (Afternoon)
    • (a) The river appears to have
    • (b) No error
    • (c) got its name
    • (d) from the town nearby

Answer :4.(b) No error. The sentence is grammatically correct.

  • Q.5. Lack of required / vitamins and minerals / lead against / several complications / in the human body.
    • (a) in the human body
    • (b) Lack of required
    • (c) lead against
    • (d) several complications

Answer :5.(c)‘Lead’ will take the preposition ‘to’ with it & the subject ‘lack of’ is singular so it will take a singular form of lead which is ‘leads’. Hence, ‘leads to’ is the most appropriate answer.

  • Q.6 The Dussehra celebrations / in Mysore / this year / are grandest than / in any other part / of the state.CGL 13/8/2021 (Evening)
    • (a) in Mysore
    • (b) The Dussehra celebrations
    • (c) are grandest than
    • (d) any other part

Answer :6.(c) We always use ‘than’ after a comparative degree when we do a comparison between two things. Similarly in the given sentence, the Dussehra celebrations in Mysore are compared with the other parts of Kerala. However, ‘grander’ is the comparative degree of ‘grand’. Hence, ‘are grander than’ is the most appropriate answer.

  • Q.7.It have been only / through writing / that men have been able / to spread their ideas to mankind.
    • (a) It have been only
    • (b) to spread their ideas to mankind
    • (c) through writing
    • (d) that men have been able

Answer :7.(a) ‘It’ is a singular pronoun that always takes a singular verb. However, have is a plural & has is a singular verb. Hence, ‘have’ will be replaced by ‘has’ to make the given sentence grammatically correct.

  • Q.8. The Principal requested / the teacher’s / to monitor / and take care of the small children. CGL 16/8/2021 (Morning)
    • (a) The Principal requested
    • (b) the teacher’s
    • (c) to monitor
    • (d) and take care of the small children

Answer:8 (b) We use apostrophes(‘s) when we want to show possession for example that is Dheeraj’s book. But according to the given sentence, the Principal requested the teachers to monitor and take care of the small children. So, there is no case of possession. Hence, ‘the teachers’ is the most appropriate answer.

  • Q.9. “Would you liked / to have / some fries / along with your coffee, / sir?” / asked the waiter. CGL 16/8/2021 (Afternoon)
    • (a) asked the waiter
    • (b) along with your coffee
    • (c) Would you liked
    • (d) some fries

Answer :9 (c) The interrogative statement in the given sentence is in the present tense so the verb must be used in its present/base form(like) and not in the past form(liked). Hence, ‘liked’ will be replaced by ‘like’ to make the given sentence grammatically correct.

  • Q.10. The supervisor / wanted to known / the pros and cons / of the issue.
    • (a) the pros and cons
    • (b) wanted to known
    • (c) of the issue
    • (d) The supervisor

Answer :10 (b) The preposition ‘to’ always takes the first form of the verb(V1) with it. However, ‘know’ is the base/first form of known(verb). Hence, ‘known’ will be replaced by ‘know’ to make the given sentence grammatically correct.
