Note: You are looking for the BEST ANSWER and not the perfect answer. Pick the answer that is superior to all the other answer choices whether or not you agree with the layout or diction.
Sentences will not always only have one error. They will mostly have two errors, so read all the answers carefully.

Three main areas of language proficiency:
  1. Grammar- in every sentence there is a grammatical error that needs to be resolved.
  2. Conciseness- Sentences must express the complete idea in a few words. This may not always mean the shortest sentence. It could be the one that is long but detailed free of redundant words
  3. Correct diction- some questions will assess diction usage which is your choice of an appropriate word or words. Word must be meaningful to the context

We often read the phrase ‘language is a living thing’, but most of us do not stop to think what it really means. Living things grow and change, so does language. Since the general tendencies of present day English are towards more idiomatic usage; it is important that the lesson on idioms should show the learner how the language is developing. Idioms are not a separate part of the language, which one can choose either to use or to omit, but they form an essential part of the vocabulary of English. A description of how the vocabulary of the language is growing and changing will help to place idioms in perspective.

An idiom is a form of expression (or of grammatical usage) peculiar to a particular language and often having a meaning other than the one that it appears to have. All Languages have their own idioms. For example, in English we say that someone is ‘as deaf as a post’, and to blow one’s top (to get angry)

Murthy, who turns 65 in August, would become Chairman Emeritus.

Affixes and roots
Adding affixes to existing words (the base or root) to form new words is common in academic English. Prefixes are added to the front of the base (like right arrow dislike), whereas suffixes are added to the end of the base (active right arrow activate). Prefixes usually do not change the class of the base word, but suffixes usually do change the class of the word.
The most common prefixes used to form new verbs in academic English are: re-, dis-, over-, un-, mis-, out-. The most common suffixes are: -ise, -en, -ate, -(i)fy. By far the most common affix in academic English is -ise.
