(1)  

  • (a) was - not used with present tense
  • (b) is  -  this is correct
  • (c) are - not used with singular things
  • (d) being - not the correct verb

(2)  

  • (a) of -  this is correct
  • (b) from - not used with parts
  • (c) for - not relevant
  • (d) at - not relevant

Since the sentence is talking about parts of a whole , ‘of’ will be used.

So, the correct answer is “(a)-of”.

 

(3)  

  • (a) being - not the correct verb
  • (b) are -  this is correct
  • (c) been - not the correct verb
  • (d) were - not used with present tense

Since the sentence is stating t he number of buildings as plural, ‘are’ will be used.

So, the correct answer is “(b)-are”.

 

 

(4)  

  • (a) visit - not used with past tense
  • (b) visiting - not used with past tense
  • (c) visited -  this is correct
  • (d) will visit - not used with past tense

Since the sentence is in simple past tense , ‘visited’ will be used.

So, the correct answer is “(c)-visited”.

 

 

(5)  

  • (a) a - not used with specific events
  • (b) an - not used with specific events
  • (c) the -  this is correct
  • (d) some - not relevant

Since the sentence is talking about a very specific event that happened, ‘the’ will be used.

So, the correct answer is “(c)-the”.

Thus the correct paragraph is

Delhi is Capital of India. People from all parts of   the Country and World come to  visit Delhi. There are many Historical Buildings here. Last year I, visited Delhi. I also watched the Commonwealth Games 2010.
