Writing Skills Section : Identifying Sentence Errors Questions

  1. Answer: C

    Explanation: The error in this sentence is (C): the pronouns "he or she" (which are both singular) do not agree the noun "drivers" (which is plural). The correct sentence reads: All states impose severe penalties on drivers who do not stop when they are involved in accidents. Note that the verb "is" has to be changed to "are" when the subject becomes plural.

  2. Answer: C

    Explanation: The error in this sentence is (C): the plural verb "are" does not agree in number with its singular subject, "pine." The correct sentence reads: Pine, like other softwoods that ignite quickly, is useful as kindling.

  3. Answer: D

    Explanation: The error in this sentence is (D): the superlative form of the phrase "the most spirit" is not appropriate when only two characters are being compared. The appropriate form for such a comparison is "more spirit." The correct sentence reads: In many respects Anna Karenina and Emma Bovary are very similar characters, but Bovary has more spirit and determination.
