Question 72

The MP rose up to say that, in her opinion, she thought the Women's Reservation Bill should be passed on unanimously.


To pass on means to die or expire. Hence, it would be incorrect in the given context. Hence, we need to use the verb "passed". Thus, we can eliminate option B and D.

"In her opinion" and "she thought" mean the same thing. Hence, we can eliminate option C as it contains repetition.

Thus, option A is the grammatically correct option.
