  2. Very useful practice set thanks for your practice set

  3. It’s good stuff for Practice thank you, sir.

  4. In the last two corrections…i have some issues ..
    1. He is a Newton of India.
    Here, when we compare common noun with proper noun, we use either a or an.
    2. Virat kholi is the Sachin Tendulkar of India.
    Here,we compare proper noun with proper noun,we use the.

    Is it true /false?

    • It is not specified that we use only a and an article. we can also use the article before the noun when we use a common noun as proper noun. It depends on the sentence that what should we use among of three.

  5. Thanks for the practical test.

  6. Super practice set, Very useful

  7. 12th sentence is correct, because subjects ending with ‘s’ take singular verb..

  8. There is a mistake in 11th questions second set:
    Let me tell u, water is an essential
    Pls do crt me if I’m wrong

    • It is a general sentence, in general sentence no art will be used

  9. In question 9 the water is wrong because it is a material noun and we can not use article before material noun

    • we can because here we are talking about specific water

    • the water is suitable here in this case as it implies to an specific idea. it is not about water found everywhere , but the water found there only.

    • Yes you are right we don't use "The" with material noun but here it is said that ….water in that pool is very tasty….so this makes the water specific.So when we talk about something specifically we use"The".
      For example – 1.The grass in that field is more greener.
      The water in that pond is so cold.,etc.
      Hope you understand
