(Motive of this translation -  letting English flow in your veins and make preparation of English interesting and easier.) 


1) 'page after page ' is the correct usage. Also add 'the' before Gita. 


2) Replace 'was' with 'were'.Certain nouns like alms exist in plural forms only and they take plural verb with them. 


3) five-star is a hyphenated noun which is not used in plural form. 


4) 'Equipment' is the correct usage. It is an uncountable noun and has no plural form. 


5) 'spoonfuls'  is the correct usage. 


6) 'Information' is the correct usage. 


7) 'jealousy ' is the right usage here.

Jealousy is the fear to lose the person/thing we have.while envy means resentful desire of something possessed by someone else. 

8) 'summonses' will be the right usage here.

'Summons' is a noun. 
Plural of summons is summonses whereas 'summon'  is a verb. 

9) 'Sheep' is the correct usage here.It doesn't take 's' with it to make a plural formation. 


10) 'evidence' is the correct usage. Its an uncountable noun. So 's' or 'es' is not added with it and takes singular verb.


11) 'Show' in place of shows. 
⚫Note - Statistics as a subject is used with singular verb, but when taken as a collection of data, it is used with a plural verb.

12) Have in place of has. 
'Orders ' is used in plural sense. 
Order of his transfer has been issued. ❌
Orders of his transfer have been issued. ✔️

13) is in place of are

14) 'twenty-day' and 'was' in place of twenty-days and were respectively. 
⚫Note - A compound noun (numerical+noun) is not used in plural if a noun does the work of an adjective. 

Example - A ten-year old boy was standing there. ✔️
He is ten years old. ✔️(here 'ten years ' is not a compound noun

15) 'Dozen' in place of 'dozens' 
⚫Note - Nouns expressing number are used in singular with numerical adjectives.
