Friends, these are the solutions to our previous post on "Correction of Sentences Practice Set 2". Read that post before reading these solutions.

  • One of My friends are engineer.
  •  One of My friends are engineer.
Here one of the means one among the group. That means you are just pointing out a specific object / person from the group. So you should not use are for that.
Technically we can say that we should use only Singular Verb for One of the + Plural Noun.

So the correct answer should be One of My friends is engineer.

  • One of my Dogs have disappeared.
Same logic as above. You should say  One of my Dogs has disappeared.
  •  I don't know nothing about him.
  •   I don't know nothing about him.
Here we used TWO NEGATIVES in a sentence. When we use two negatives, it may represent positive. So you shouldn't use that.
What are these negative forms ?
  • Anything / Something --- Nothing 
  • Anyone / Someone ---- No one
When you use don't, that is a negative. So simply you can say I don't know anything about him. 

Or you can say I know nothing about him.

But you shouldn't say I don't know nothing about him.
  • I could not find him nowhere.
  • He does not want none of the cakes.
Here also same logic, 2 negatives. So, you just should say
  • I could not find him anywhere / I could find him nowhere
  • He does not want any of the cakes / He wants none of the cakes

  • He is working hard with a view to win the match.
  • He is working hard with a view to win the match.
There are only two phrases in English where to is followed by ing form. 
Those are 
  • look forward to 
  • with a view to
you should use ing form to the verb followed by above phrases.

Ex :
  • I look forward to working with you.
  • The statement was discussed at a two-day workshop of all managers with a view to building a comprehensive, detailed document.
So the correct answer is He is working hard with a view to winning the match.

  • I look forward to pass the exam.
Same logic, I look forward to  passing the exam.

  • I, you and he are neighbours.
I is 1st person
You is 2nd person
He / She / It / They etc are third person
If you want to use them together, you should follow an order 2 3 1
That means, first you should use 2nd person, and then 3rd person, later 1st person
So here you should say, You, he and I are neighbours.

  • Let he do whatever he likes to do.
 After let you always should use Objects. So you should say, Let him do whatever he likes to do .


  • Let he and I solve this problem.
Let him and me solve the problem.

  • The climate of Nagpur is better than Bombay.
Here our intention is to compare the climate of Nagpur to the climate of Bombay right ?
But check the above sentence again. It just comparing the climate of Nagpur to Bombay!!! (not the climate of Bombay). Hope you got the difference now.

So, we can simply say, the climate of Nagpur is better than the climate of Bombay.

But, here using the climate two times makes the sentence kind of weird. So we simply us that of at the second part of the sentence.

So, the correct answer should be, The climate of Nagpur is better than that of Bombay.

  • The roads of Delhi are better than Allahabad.
Same logic.  We can simply write the roads of Delhi are better than that of Allahabad. Right ?
Wrong !!! 
See, here we are talking about the roads. Its plural. So how can we use that of ? ???

So the correct answer will be The roads of Delhi are better than those of Allahabad.
