Identify the segment in the sentence which contains the grammatical error.
The cottage at the hill station didn’t have a DTH connection or telephone.
Correct Answer : c ) or telephone.Explanation :
The error is in part c.
As per grammatical rules for articles, singular countable noun subjects take use of indefinite article ‘a/an’.
‘Telephone’ is a singular countable noun subject. Therefore, it will take use of ‘a’ because it has the sound of a consonant.
Hence, (c) is the correct answer.
