Question of The Day27-10-2020

Identify the segment in the sentence which contains the grammatical error.

Ajay couldn’t resist tasting the apple pie as he had baked it him.


Correct Answer : a ) had baked it him.

Explanation :

The error is in part ‘A’.

The context states that Ajay baked an apple pie and he could not stop himself from tasting it.

‘Herself, himself, itself etc are all reflexive pronouns used to express an action which has the subject and object the same.

Here, ‘Ajay’ is acting both as subject and object in the sentence. Here, he baked the pie himself. So, ‘himself’ should be used instead of ‘him’.

Hence, (a) is the correct answer.
