Solutions to English Grammar for CAT:

Answer 1:

The verb “invite” does not agree with the singular noun “choice”. Hence, the correct usage of the verb is “invites”.

Answer 2:

The words “he then” are not required here. The correct sentence is “Gavaskar was a great batsman who having played more than 100 test matches, decided to call it a day”.

Answer 3:

“Sold of” must be replaced by “sold off”. The remaining sentences are correct. Option a) is the correct answer.

Answer 4:

‘Minority’ should take the verb ‘has been’. On the other hand, the word ‘minorities’ take the verb ‘have been’. Option c) is the correct answer.

Answer 5:

The use of the word “ambitious” is redundant since the word ‘aspiring’ has already been used. Only one of the two words has to be used in the third sentence. Option c) is the correct answer.
