BA ADP English How to Correct the Sentence


ADP Part.2 English

Correction of sentences

1.     She said that she will take care of me.

She said that she would take care of me.

Rule: A past tense is always followed by a past tense except the universal truth. In the above   mentioned sentence there is no universal truth, so ‘will’ changes into ‘would.


2.     I told her that I miss her every minute.

I told her that I missed her every time.

Rule: This is the same as like sentence.1, past tense is followed by past tense, so verb ‘miss’ will be converted into ‘missed’


3.     She is singing a song since one hour.

She has been singing a song since one hour.

Rule: When sentence shows continuity of any action and there is ‘time specification’, the sentence belongs to ‘Present Perfect Continuous Tense’. So, use has been singing in place of ‘is singing.


4.     Many a women suffer from anxiety.

Many a woman suffer from anxiety.

Rule: This is the use of ‘many a’. Remember ‘many’ is followed by a plural noun and ‘many a’ is followed by singular noun but both are considered as plural


5.     Either of the three brothers will join army.

Either of the two brothers will join the army.

Rule: Either is an indefinite pronoun and is used in positive sentence but ‘either’ always makes a choice between two things or persons.so it is either of the two brothers-


6.     It has been raining for last Sunday.

It has been raining since last Sunday.

Rule: The above sentence belongs to present perfect continuous. There is a time specification in it. For ‘time specification’ ‘for’ and ‘since’ are used. ‘Since’ is used for point of time and ‘for’ is used for ‘period of time’


7.     Run fast lest you should not miss the train.

Run fast lest you should miss the train.

Rule: This is the use of ‘Lest’ and ‘should’ lest is used to make a negative sense in the sentence, so never use ‘not’ after [‘lest’


8.     I shall give you many gifts if you will come to my house.

I shall give you many gifts if you come to my house.

Rule: The above sentence is of conditional type.1. in these sentence ‘if clause’ is always written in present indefinite.
