1) d
We have to join two sentences from the two columns in a way that they form a meaningful and grammatically correct sentence.The sentence A of the column 1 talks about reforms, here one may be confused between statement D and E as both seem to be completing the sentence A but when we take a look at sentence C, we realize that it will go well only with sentence E. 
So pairing will be  A-D,  B-F, C-E



2) d

We have to join two sentences from the two columns in a way that they form a meaningful and grammatically correct sentence.The sentence A of the column 1 talks about public sector enterprise. Sentence F seem to be completing the sentence A. Sentence B talks about a king, so sentence D which talks about giving gifts completes sentence B. Hence, pairing will be A-F,  B-D, C-E


3) A
Replace ‘many a Japanese cities’ with ‘many Japanese cities’. 
In “Many a +noun ” structure, noun is in singular form.Moreover the sentence does not demand “Many a +noun ” structure.

4) E
Use ‘while racing for the bus’ otherwise the sentence would mean that Sonali’s  bag not Sonali was racing for the bus. (which is funny ) 

RULE   – DANGLING PARTICIPLE
A participle is a verb-adjective.It should be related to a proper subject of reference. If the subject is lacking or if a wrong subject is used, the  sentence will not make any sense. 

(This is one of the 20 frequently asked grammar rules in BANK EXAMS) 



5)E

 use ‘because of’ in place of ‘for’ 
and ‘bottleneck’ in place of bottlenecks. 



6) c
Regard – concern 
‘Regard for ‘ is the correct usage here. 


7) b
⚫Another Vs Other
Both have the same meaning,except that another is used with a singular noun and other is used with uncountable and plural nouns. 
‘Another currency ‘ can’t fit into the context here as ‘several currencies’  has been mentioned in the given sentence.


8) a
⚫Replace by  Vs  replace with
Replace with ‘ is used when we are referring to replacing something that is broken, old, or not working, then we replace it with a new one. 
‘Replace by ‘ is used when we are referring to filing the role of someone or something with a substitute, then it is ‘replaced by’. 
‘Has’ will be used as it has been used for the singular noun ‘The idea’. 


9) A
‘remains a challenge’ is the correct usage here. Singular form of the verb will be used for the singular act ‘The continuance’. 


10) b
On the verge of 
Meaning – almost at the beginning of
