Question of The Day17-03-2020

Directions: Read the sentence to find out if there is any grammatical error in it. The error, if any, will be in one part of the sentence. The number of this part is your answer. If there is no error in the statement, then mark option (e) as your answer choice. Ignore punctuation error, if any.

Whatever the immunity innate to sportspersons, it offer no guaranteed protection against a malevolent virus.


Correct Answer : b ) to sportspersons, it offer

Explanation :

‘It’ is a pronoun that refers to a single entity, and therefore the verb to be used here has to be singular.

So, instead of ‘offer’, we need to use ‘offers’.

It is a generic confusion, but it is important to bear in mind that action words i.e., verbs with an ‘-s/-es’ are singular in form.

For example:

Raghav plays Cricket in the ground that is far away from his place.

The club satisfies the needs of its customers with an immediate effect.

Therefore, the correct sentence will be ‘Whatever the immunity innate to sportspersons, it offers no guaranteed protection against a malevolent virus’.

Hence, b is the correct answer.

This type of error spotting question is generally asked in SSC CGL Tier I or Banking and Insurance Preliminary sections.
