Read the 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 error with the phrase, “Hardik could not come on time”, is with the use of the word, “could”.
