S1. Ans. (a)
Sol. Here, as tall as I am will be used.
Sol. Correlative conjunctions, e.g., either … or, neither … nor, not only … but also agree with the same part of speech. Hence, Not only did they go… should be used here.
Sol. With ‘Not only … but also’, the same parts of speech should be used.
S4. Ans. (b)
Sol. Here, ‘unless’ is used for saying that something can only happen or be true in a particular situation.
S5. Ans. (d)
Sol. ‘Unless’ is followed by a positive sentence. Hence, unless you dedicate to …. Should be used.
S6. Ans. (d)
Sol. ‘No sooner’ is an adverb. When it is used at the beginning of a sentence, Inversion rule decides the structure of the sentence. In such a case, we find two generally used structures:
(i) No sooner did V1
(ii) No sooner had V3
As the use ‘departed’ (V2) is correct in all respects, so there requires no correction.
Sol. The sentence is correct. Although/Though-yet is a correct correlative.
Sol. No sooner-than is a correct connective. So, then will be replaced by than.
Sol. Here, the use of because is wrong, because, the word reason given in the beginning of the sentence has because in itself. Therefore, that will be used in place of because.
S10. Ans. (c)
Sol. When we use either … or as a connective, the verb agrees according to the number and person of the nearest subject. Hence, is required … should be used here.
