Spotting Error Quiz 

Correct Answer

  1. E. No error
  2. C. Use ‘has’ in place of ‘had’ as present perfect passive verb should be used because ‘an old house’
    in the past is converted into a ‘Flat’ now.
  3. C.. Use ‘hopes’ in place of ‘hope’ as in the sentence the subject ‘campaign’ is singular.
  4. B. Use ‘awarded’ as the subject ‘A cash prize’ is passive hence verb should be passive too.
  5. B.Use ‘for’ in place of ‘to’.
  6. E. No error
  7. A. Here an interrogative pronoun is required as the object to the verb ‘do’ so ‘what’ should be used because ‘how’ is not a pronoun. For example, what you have said is not true.
  8. D. Change ‘do’ to ‘did’ as sentence starting in the past should stay in the past.
  9. C. Change ‘for’ to ‘on’.
  10. E. No error
