Answers

N1. The traveler asked the stranger if he knew the way to the nearest inn. When the main verb is in the past tense, we will most probably need a past tense in the subordinate clause. The past perfect is not possible here because we are not talking about the ‘earlier past

N2. The dentist suggested changing / that I should change my toothpaste. Suggest is one of those verbs that cannot be followed by a to-infinitive. It can be followed by an -ing form or a that-clause

N3. The terrorist’s attempt to blow up the bridge was foiled by the police. Blow up’ means to destroy someone or something by explosion

N4. In his budget speech, the Finance Minister bring forward many bold reforms. ‘Bring forward’ means ‘to introduce someone or something

N5. The suspects are still at large. ‘At large’ means ‘free; uncaptured – usually said of criminals not in custody

N6. The dilapidated building was not habitable. We need an adjective (habitable) here; the other two options are nouns

N7. None of the three boys attended the class. Either and neither are used to speak of two people or things

N8. There were fewer than twenty people present. Less is used with uncountable nouns and fewer is used with countable nouns

N9. Mumbai is the Manchester of India. Articles are used with proper nouns used as epithets

N10. There are no secrets between you and me. Between is a preposition. A pronoun following a preposition should be in its object form

N11. Although buses are supposed to depart at a certain hour, they are often late. Although is a conjunction; we need a conjunction to connect two clauses

N12. Have you received any information so far? Information is uncountable and as such it does not have a plural form. PLAY AGAIN
