Identify the segment in the sentence which contains the grammatical error.
The Company invests in emerging (a)/ markets which tends to be more volatile (b)/ than mature markets and the value of your investment could move sharply up or down. (c)/ no error (d)
Correct Answer : b ) markets which tends to be more volatileExplanation :
The error is in part ‘b’.
The relative pronoun ‘which’ relates to the nearest subject, i.e., ‘markets’ and this subject is plural in form.
The verb attached to it should also be plural in form. So, instead of ‘tends’ we need to use ‘tend’.
Hence, option (b) is the correct answer.
