The correct answer is option A.

Question tag -It is used when one wants to reconfirm ones statement.It is a statement followed by a question.

If the statement is positive, question tag will be negative and vice versa.

For ex- Shyam is working in a bank, isn’t he?

Question tags are formed with the auxiliary or modal verb from the statement and the appropriate subject.

A subject pronoun comes after an auxiliary or after to be’ form of the verb & is used to replace the noun.

Here in the given question-

Hotel was not too expensive, wasn’t it?

Since the statement /main part of the sentence is in positive form, question tag will be negative.

Here was’ is used in main part of the sentence,so in question tag we use wasn’t’.

(Same verb/(auxiliary,modal,main)as that of the sentence)

To indicate Hotel’,here we used pronounit’.

..

The correct answer is option number 1st.

To +V1 is called as the infinitive form if the verb.

After to’ we use first form if the verb.

Infinitive form if the verb is used when we want to express the purpose,to answer why.

Ex-He studied hard to make his parents proud.

Why he do study -to make his parents proud.

Infinitive form is used as a subject of verb,as a object of verb,as the complement of the verb,as a object of preposition,to qualify noun,to qualify a sentence.

Here it is used as a Adverb’.It qualifies verb Studied’.

In the given example, options -to be filled,filling,filled’are wrong.Because after to’ we can’t use 3rd form of the verb,rest options are grammatically incorrect.

The correct answer is option number -D

Mustn’t have done is the correct answer.

Mustn’t have -Must is a modal verb,it adds meaning to another verb.

Mustn’t we use to show possibility or necessity.

Must not -We use to talk about things we need to avoid doing or while telling someone to not do it.

Rest options are grammatically & contextual incorrect.

Might -We use might to show prediction, possibility, probability.

Ex- the Prime Minister might visit the town.

Here indicating possibility.

Might & hadn’t is inappropriate because sentence is in the present tense.

Usage of didn’t is not contextually correct.

Didn’t have to do -We say didn’t have to represent specific point of time that has already passed.

Only option Mustn’t have do’ is grammatically & contextually correct.

The correct answer is option B.

Here it’s prepositional error.

Preposition TO‘ is used to show destination.

Also go to sea ‘ is an idiom which means to become a seller,to embark on a voyage.

We see uses of other preposition

Into– we use this to show moment,any action which show moment.

Ex- He jumped into the well.

In -It is use to show place,time.

Ex- There is a pen in the cupboard.

On -it is use to indicate time,place.(When things are in direct contact,at surface area,in rest position)

Ex- there is a book on the table.

The correct answer is option number D.

Option A is the correct answer.

Cognisance or cognizance Means Notice, awareness or knowledge.

Here in this sentence ,the court notices the words of the criminal. That they are considering the words from the Criminal. So gave, allowed and made doesn’t fit in the blank of the sentence.

The correct answer is option -B

Whoever- It is a subject pronoun & work like the pronouns I,We He,She & They.

Ex- Whoever wins this debut will win a prize.

Whoever means -Someone/anyone who does a particular thing or is in a particular situation.

Meaning of the remaining options

1) Whatever- Unexceptional /unimportant,at all, absolutely, whatsoever.No matter which,for any, anything that.

Synonyms- So what.

Ex- Whatever may happen,I will go to Mahabaleshwar today.

2) Wherever-(Adverb) An emphatic form of where.

It also acts as a conjunction -whatever place, anywhere,in all places, everywhere.

Ex- I will come with you wherever you will take me.

3) Whichever- (Adjective / pronoun) – Any one/ a no of a group.

Ex- Whichever pizza you ordered for her, it must have had some very delicious ingredients.

The correct answer is option number – C.

Waver means – To sway back & forth, to fluctuate /vary,to tremble,to flatter,to be indecisive.

Dither- To tremble,the state of being undecided.

Wither-To go against,resist,oppose.

Shake -to cause something to move rapidly in opposite directions,to disturb emotionally,to lose,evade,get rid of

Here sentence implies that -As he got older, beliefs in principles became more strong,he didn’t fluctuate.

Accountable for -means responsible for.

Meaning of other options

2) to – It is used to indicate directions.To denote any thing which is at surface area, in rest position.

3) over- it is used to indicate place.

So these are contextually incorrect.

Also the expression Accountable for’ means to responsible for.So,usage of For’ will be correct here.

The correct answer is option -C

The given sentence is of question tag.

Question tag is used to reconfirm the question or the statement.

If the main sentence is positive, question tag will be negative and vice -versa.

Here the given sentence is positive,so question tag will be negative.

The sentence is in the past form.Used to’ we use as a simple present tense but  to indicate the things happened in the past.

Ex-I used to go by bus.

As the sentence is in the past form,usage of did’ will be correct.

Did’ is the past form of the Do’

Option A- Did he ? Will be wrong.Because given sentence is in the positive form,so question tag will be negative.

Option B- Does he?- Will be wrong.Because the given sentence is in the past tense & Does’ is use for 3rd person singular & when sentence is in present form.

Option D- Doesn’t he? – Will be wrong.Because the given sentence is in present tense.Though the question tag is negative,it is wrong.Because `Does’ is used when the sentence is in the present tense & subject is 3rd person singular.
