Directions (1-5): Read the poem given below and answer the questions that follow by selecting the most appropriate option.
I wander’s lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way
They stretch’d in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee
A poet could not but be gay
In such a jocund company
I gazed-and gazed-but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

Q10. Running across the playground, my pen fell in the mud; (A) / fortunately, I noticed it. (B) / and picked it up. (C) / No error (D)
Sol. According to the context, the clause needs to be in Passive Voice form. Hence replace ‘the thief caught immediately’ with ‘the thief was caught immediately’.
Sol. Replace ‘he does not know to read and write English’ with ‘he does not know how to read and write English’. As ‘Know + how + infinitive i.e. to + V’ is a proper usage in grammar.
Sol. Replace ‘a large number of hoarded sugar’ with ‘a large quantity of hoarded sugar’ in his shop. As sugar is an uncountable noun and does not take ‘a large number of’ with it.
Sol. Replace ‘not to afraid of it’ with ‘not to be afraid of it’.
Sol. Replace ‘my pen fell in the mud’ with ‘I dropped my pen in the mud’. In the absence of a subject, the secondary clause plays the role of a subject for the primary clause but it must fit in the context and on becoming the subject, my pen fell in the mud doesn’t make the sentence meaningful. Also pen needs an external agent to drop it, so ‘fall’ will be replaced by ‘drop’ and secondary clause will be ‘I dropped my pen in the mud’ to justify the sentence.
