In the given question, three words are printed in bold, one of which may be wrongly spelled or inappropriate in the context of the sentence. Choose the inappropriate word. If all the words printed in bold are correctly spelt and are also appropriate in the context of the sentence, mark (E), i.e., ‘All are correct’ as your answer.
Her younger sister, in a complaint logged with police, said she got a call from her sister on Wednesday.
Correct Answer : b ) loggedExplanation :
The word, “logged (option b)” meaning, “to record a fact or to cut down” is incorrectly used in the above sentence. The correct word to be used is ‘lodged’, which means ‘to present formally to the proper authorities’.
All the other options are spelled and used correctly, and the sentence is grammatically and contextually correct. We can, therefore, eliminate the other options.
Hence, (b) is the correct answer.
