Part B is having error.

Could not and hardly means the same thing.

Here both the words are used together and it’s called superfluous.

To correct the sentence remove either ‘could not’ or ‘hardly’.

Part B is having error in it.

An is used wrongly here. Instead of an , so good or very good should be used.

The error is in the part C

Replace is’ with are’.

Subject (areas) is in plural form so verb should also be in plural form.

So usage of are’ will be correct.

The error is in part B of the sentence.

use both for man and their in place of both necessary

Both” should be placed near the word it modifies.

In the sentence both modifies man and their outer and inner self that’s why it should be placed near the word “man”.

The error is in the B part of the sentence.

Replace raise’ with `raised’.

As the sentence is in the past tense.

Whistled (verb) is in the past form.

So ,raise should also be the past form.

‘We’ is plural and therefore should be followed by plural verb. So, ‘was’ is incorrect and it must be replaced with ‘were’.
Hence, option C is the correct answer.

Part C contains the error. ‘to understand’ must have been used instead of ‘for understanding’. Since the statement that follows is in simple present tense, the usage of present continuous tense is inconsistent. Hence, C is the right answer.
