EXPLANATIONS :

1.Out of the given parts, part A is error free.

In part B, ‘who has been’ is incorrect here. Here ‘people’ is plural noun. ‘Have been’ will be the correct choice.

In part C, ‘tested immediate’ is incorrect here. We need an adverb here; i.e ‘tested immediately’ will be the correct choice.

In part D, ‘and will closely be monitored’ is incorrect here. Here ‘and’ connector is incorrect as both sentences are contradictory with each other. So, ‘but’ connector will be the correct choice.

2.Out of the given parts, part D is error free. 

In part A, ‘weakened’ should be used in place of ‘weekend’. Weakened is the past and past participle form of the word weaken which means ‘make or become weaker in power’. Weekend means Saturday and Sunday.

In part  B, ‘its’ should be used. ‘Its’ is a possessive determiner we use to say that something belongs to or refers to something. It’s is the contracted form of ‘it is’.

In part C, ’fallout’ should be used. Fallout means the adverse results of a situation or action.

3.Out of the given parts, part A is error free. 

In part B, ‘on’ should be used in place of ‘at’. ‘On’ is used with dates, and also with a singular day of the week to refer to one occasion. ‘At’ is used with particular points on the clock, with particular points in the day, with particular points in the week.

In part C, ‘brought by’ should be used in place of ‘brought in’. ‘Bring in’ means ‘to carry, convey, conduct, or cause someone or something to come with, to, or toward the speaker’. But here it cannot be used as it makes the sentence grammatically incorrect.

In part D, ‘companies’ should be used in place of ‘company’. We can clearly see ‘24’ has been mentioned. Had it been one entity, it would have been ‘company.

4.Out of the given parts, part C is error free. 

In part A, personal should be used in place of personnel. ‘Personnel’ refers to ‘employees in an organization’. On the other hand, ‘personal’ means ‘belonging to someone.’

In part B, ‘equipment’ should be used in place of ‘equipments’. The noun equipment does not have a plural form. It is used in the singular form and with a singular verb, and there is no word "equipments."

In part D, ‘losses’ should be used in place of ‘looses’. Loose is an adjective that means “not tight.” ‘Loss’ is a noun which refers to the fact or process of losing something or someone.

5.Out of the given parts, part D is error free. 

In part A, ‘on tenterhooks’ should be used in place of ‘in tenterhooks’. On tenterhooks is a phrase which means ‘in a state of suspense or agitation because of uncertainty about a future event’.

In part B, ‘since’ should be used in place of ‘for’. ‘For’ actually refers to an amount of time. It does not specify the start of an action or event. On the other hand, ‘since’ is used to specify the start of the action or event.

In part C, ‘has’ should be used in place of ‘have’. ‘Conference’ is being referred to here. Hence the verb should be singular.

6.Out of the given parts, part C is error free. 

In part A, ‘often’ is an adverb. We can never place an adverb between the main verb and the object. So the correct form will be ‘Raghav often used to come to my house....’

In part B, we should use ‘mathematics’ in place of ‘mathematic’. Mathematics is the correct form of the word.

In part D, there is an erroneous application of preposition.  Whenever, we talk of a disease, we use ‘die of’. But when we refer to a reason, we use ‘die from’. So, ‘Died of cancer’ should be used here.

7. In sentence II, ‘dedicated’ is erroneous as a noun is required in the sentence to convey the meaning that commitment of the women to support themselves and their families is eye-opening. 

So, it should be 'dedication' in option II.

'Dedication' is the subject of the first part of the sentence and 'because' means that the reason behind this dedication is 'the bare minimum resources'. This is incorrect as the women are dedicated because they want to support their families and not because they do not have enough resources. So, option III is wrong.

Sentence III is grammatically correct. 

8. 'Practise' is a verb. It should be 'practice' as we need a noun here. So, option II is incorrect.

'By' is always preceded by a verb, as by tells the medium of performing that verb. But 'practice' is a verb. So, option III is wrong.

9.Out of the three sentences, only II is correct. “Influential” is an adjective and cannot be used without a noun. Thus, the phrase “majority of influential” in alternative I is an incorrect term. Similarly, the phrase “major influential” is incorrect in III.

10. The sentence II is incorrect because subject-verb agreement is violated. The subject i.e. Jigme Wangchuck in the sentence is singular, therefore, the verb must be singular. However, the presence of ‘are’ makes the sentence grammatically incorrect. 

Sentence III is structurally incorrect and does not convey the required meaning.

Only sentence I is grammatically correct.

11.'Petty' is an adjective and should be followed by a noun. Since, we ae showing how much the villages were wiped out, it should be 'pretty' in statement I. 

The sentences speak about the destruction of villages, which is said by phrasal verb 'wiped out'. So, option II is wrong.

Only statement III is grammatically correct.

12.“Experience’ is singular. So, to maintain subject-verb agreement in statement I, ‘this’ should be used instead of ‘these’. Similarly, in statement II ’experiences’ should be used if ‘these’ is considered correct. Statement III is grammatically correct. Thus, option C is the correct answer.

13.‘They’re’ is a contraction of ‘they are’ and both fit the statements I and II appropriately. ‘Their’ refers to belonging to or associated with a person of unspecified gender. Hence it has been incorrectly used in statement III. So, option D is the correct answer.

14.The plural ‘collections’ is used to denote groups of dissimilar things/objects. Thus it has been incorrectly used in statement I as the singular form should have been used to denote the assembly of similar writings. Statement II and III are both correct as ‘incarcerated’ and ‘imprisoned’ are synonyms.  Thus, option C is the correct answer.

15.The article ‘an’ has been incorrectly used in statements II and III. ‘An’ can be used only before words starting with a vowel. This makes only statement I correct and option A the correct answer.
