The correct answer is option -B

Here,fair’ is an adjective which qualifies the noun game’.

Usage of fairly’ is wrong here.

Fairly – is an adverb which will qualify verb played’.

Since in sentence,the game -noun is used.

To qualify that we will use adjective.

If we look at the context/meaning usage of Adjective fair’ is correct.

Ex- Both the teams played fairly.

Here it qualifies verb,so we use fairly (adverb)

Meaning-both the teams played in a fair manner.

Ex- Both the teams played a fair game.

Meaning -both the teams played a good,pure game.(no cheating,breaking of rules etc).

The given sentence is correct.

Here the sentence implies that she couldn’t help but can’t resist herself from laughing.

The 1st option but laughing –

Is incorrect here.in the given sentence,help’ is used as a noun so we have to use same form of the verb after but.

2nd Option-

Laughter – though it is a noun ,meaning is different.It means the sound of laughing.

3rd option laughing

It is the present participle of laugh’

The correct answer is option -A.

Some grapes is a direct object which should be placed after verb.

Some grapes -I took some grapes, not my mother.

Order of the sentence should be I took some grapes for my mother

Ex- I bought for my friend some books.

It should be I bought some books for my friend.

The correct answer is option -D.

Shook (past form of shake)-shocked & upset by an unpleasant experience.

The correct word should be- nodded

Nodded-(past & past participle of nod)to move your head down and then up, sometimes several times, especially to show agreement, approval, or greeting.

If we look at the context,the correct word should be nodded.

The correct answer is option -C

Insisted on -To ask for something,to request someone.demand something forcefully,

Insisted that – we use insisted that when no verb comes immediately after (insisted that)

Insisted that will be followed by pronoun.

Here in this sentence -It is followed by pronoun She’.

Insisted on usually preced the verb.

For ex- Shyam insisted on coming to Pune.

Here insisted on’  followed by coming'(present participle of come).

The correct answer is option -D

The correct answer is option -A.

This’ is a demonstrative pronoun.It is used to point out the object to which they refer to.

In sentence it already mentioning about policy.So to indicate the Policy’ (definite thing) we must use This’.

Article A’ we use to refer indefinite person or thing spoken of.

Policy -It is singular form.So usage of these’ will be incorrect.So option B and C will get eliminated.

The given sentence is correct.

The meaning of phrase too good to be true’ -so good  that you cannot believe that such a situation is possible or can continue.

The correct answer is option -B

Surrendered himself before the Police -means he hand over himself to the Police.

Himself -here act as a reflexive pronoun.

Reflexive pronoun -If the action of the subject reflects upon the doer,it is called as reflexive pronoun.

Option D is the correct answer.

In if clause simple present tense is used so in main clause simple future tense should be used.

Hence,  the given sentence is correct And no improvement is required.

The Correct answer is option -C.

Ex- This is the girl whose name is Anita.

Here the girl is an antecedent. Whose is a relative pronoun which is used after the antecedent She’.

Article A’ should be used before European lady.

Article A is used to represent the person or thing which are indefinite.

Here we will not use articlean’ because we use an’ after words with vowel sounds.

European it sounds like yuropean.

We don’t use article `an’ simply because any word starts with vowel it should sound like a vowel.
