Identify the segment in the sentence which contains the grammatical error.
The pope hoped to explain the revolutionary cause to the congregation and enlisted their support.
Correct Answer : d ) enlisted their support.Explanation :
There are two action words attached to 'the pope'. One is 'explain' (the cause) and the other is 'enlist' (their support, i.e., the support of the congregation).
Both the verbs make use of a common preposition, i.e., 'to'. And after 'to', the first form of the verb is used.
So, instead of 'enlisted', it should be 'enlist'.
Hence, option D is the correct answer.
