English Quiz 005

Choose the correct alternative out of the four to fill in the blank: If you say to someone, ‘You’re so full of yourself’ they’ll probably feel _______.

Quoted words are used for people with an exaggerated sense of self-worth, to the point that they can’t see a thing besides themselves. Such words are used to denote that they are boastful. So they would probably be ‘upset’ hearing this. So the correct option is 2.

Choose the correct alternative out of the four to fill in the blanks: Work should be guided by some ______ desire of altruism and ______.

The context of this sentence is a positive one. So, we must use positive adjectives here. Also, the word ‘altruism’ is related to ‘philanthropy’ and hence it is the answer.

Out of four alternatives, choose the one which can be substituted for the given word/sentences: Medical study of skin and its diseases

Dermatology is the branch of medicine dealing with the skin, nails, hair and its diseases. It is a specialty with both medical and surgical aspects. Endocrinology is the branch of physiology and medicine concerned with endocrine glands and hormones. Orthopedic surgery or orthopedics (alternatively spelled orthopaedic surgery and orthopaedics) is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Gynaecology is the branch of physiology and medicine which deals with the functions and diseases specific to women and girls, especially those affecting the reproductive system.

Four words are given in each question, out of which only one word is correctly spelt. Mark the correctly spelt word.

Option 3 is correct.

Change the voice of the sentence from active to passive or vice versa: They have made a film based on his novel.

The given sentence is in active voice as thing (they) doing the action (making a film) is the subject. Consider the sentence ‘They have made a film.’ What would be the passive form of this sentence? It would be: ‘A film has been made (by them).’ But in the original sentence, the film is ‘based on a novel’ which acts as an adjective for the film. When converting the original sentence to passive, just associate this adjective with film. So converting the original sentence to passive: ‘A film, based on this novel, has been made’.
