Question of The Day01-03-2022

In the following question, some part of the sentence may have errors. Find out which part of the sentence has an error and select the appropriate option. If the sentence is free from error, select ‘No error’.

Equal opportunity means (1)/ everyone getting a fair (2)/ chance in being incompetent. (3)/ No error. (4)


Correct Answer : c ) Chance in being incompetent

Explanation :

The error in the phrase, “chance in being incompetent” is with the use of the preposition, ‘in’. The correct preposition to be used here is ‘at’.

The preposition, ‘in’ means ‘to express a situation which is enclosed or surrounded by something else’ whereas ‘at’ expresses a particular state or condition.

In the above sentence, ‘being incompetent’ is a condition or state. Therefore, the use of ‘at’ is more appropriate.

Hence, (C) is the correct answer.
