Answer key with explanations: (Morning shift 19th October)

Q 151   b       

The subject of the sentence is the whole block of flats including two shops which is singular. The singular subject does not match with the verb that is used in the sentence which is were.So replace were by was.

Correct sentence : The whole block of flats including the two shops was destroyed in fire.

Q152     b

Replace( as much or) by (as much as or).

Correct sentence: He feels his troubles as much as or even more than they.

Note-Many students must have marked c as the answer as they must have felt that them will be used instead of they. But they has been used correctly as the two pronouns which are being compared are he and they. Both are nominative pronouns. While making comparisons in pronouns the same form should be used.
