Good evening everyone!

Hope the preparations are going well.
We present you yet another resource on a HIGH scoring and EASY topic which occurs in SSC frequently and abundantly. It is SPOTTING THE ERROR. Almost five questions are asked from Spotting the Error in every SSC CGL examination which makes it a very IMPORTANT topic to master. It is an easy topic and requires practice. More practice of spotting error questions and knowledge of grammar will help you to solve these questions with ease.

On a grammatical scale it requires an awareness of the basic rules of grammar – parts of speech, genders, infinitives, participles, subject-verb accord, form of tenses, use of articles and certain exceptional uses. Below are questions that would help you understand this topic in 5-10 minutes for SSC CGL 2018. It’s time to PRACTICE now!

Directions: In these questions some parts of the sentences have errors and some are correct. Find out which part of the sentence has an error and blacken the oval corresponding to the appropriate letter a, b, c. If the sentence is free from error blacken the oval corresponding to d in the answer sheet.
