Question 54

If you look at a Map of the World, you will see, in the left-hand upper corner of the Eastern Hemisphere, two Islands lying beside the sea.
I. lying beyond the sea
II. lying in the sea
III. lying on the sea


An island is surrounded by sea from all sides. Hence, both ‘beyond’ and ‘beside’do not make any sense for the given blank. Thus, only ‘in’ is correct. Hence, option II is the correct answer.
