Direction: Read each sentence to find out whether there is any grammatical error in it. The error, if any, will be in one part of the sentence. If the sentence is correct as it is, mark 'No error' as the answer (Ignore Error of Punctuation, if any).
The weather was (A)/ humid and is (B)/ affecting the health (C)/ of many (D). /No Error (E)
Correct Answer : b ) humid and isExplanation :
The error with the phrase, “humid and is” is with the use of the incorrect tense form of the verb, “is” instead, “was.”
The tense of the sentence is simple past tense, and the auxiliary verb “is” denotes present tense making the sentence grammatically incorrect. Therefore, use of “is” in the sentence is incorrect.
Hence, (B) is the correct answer.
