[CAT 2008]


Statement A is correct. Statement B is wrong because of the use of the word 'their'. It should've been 'its'. Statement C is wrong because of the presence of a comma after the word concerns. There is no need for a comma there. Also, Sentence C should be ‘Perhaps sensing that the rising tide…’ as without ‘that’ the sentence structure is incomplete.  Statement D is correct. Statement E is wrong because of the wrong article before the word 'industry'. It should've been 'an industry leader'.
