Answer

(1)  

  • (a) understood - not used with present tense
  • (b) understand - not used with a single person
  • (c) have understand - not used with simple present tense
  • (d) understands -  this is correct

Since the sentence is talking about a single student and is in simple present tense, ‘s’ will be added with the first form of the verb.

So, the correct answer is “(d)-understands”

(2)  

  • (a) of -  this is correct
  • (b) by - not used when talking about the importance of something
  • (c) from - not used when talking about the importance of something
  • (d) with - not used when talking about the importance of something

 

Since the sentence is talking about the importance of physical exercise , ‘of’ will be used.

So, the correct answer is “(a)-of”.

(3)  

  • (a) how - not used with locations
  • (b) which - not used with locations
  • (c) where -  this is correct
  • (d) why - not used with locations

Since the sentence is telling about the location of the event, ‘where’ will be used

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

 

 

(4)  

  • (a) be taken -  this is correct
  • (b) took - not used with present tense
  • (c) takes - not used with present perfect tense
  • (d) has taken - not used when ideal response is talked about

Since the sentence is talking about what is the ideal behaviour or response to a situation and the sentence is in present perfect tense , ‘be taken’ will be used.

So, the correct answer is “(a)-be taken”.

 

 

(5)  

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

Since the sentence is talking about the body as a whole single unit, ‘the’ will be used.

So, the correct answer is “(c)-the”

Thus the correct paragraph is

The modern Student understands the importance of physical exercise. He spends one to two  hours in open air where he takes part in different Sports. However, care should be taken not to  overstrain the body.
