Answer

(1)  

  • (a) as - not relevant
  • (b) for - not relevant
  • (c) even if  -  this is correct
  • (d) but - not relevant

Since the sentence is telling about an event that has occurred irrespective of any certain conditions, ‘even if’ will be used

So, the correct answer is “(c)-even if”

(2)  

  • (a) rides - used with singular pronouns
  • (b) ride - not used with continuous tense
  • (c) rode - not used with continuous tense
  • (d) riding -  this is correct

Since the sentence is in the past continuous tense, ‘ing’ will be added with the verb. So, ‘riding’ will be used.

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

(3)  

  • (a) has - not used with past tense
  • (b) had -  this is correct  
  • (c) have - not used with past tense
  • (d) having- not used with perfect tense

Since the sentence is in past perfect tense , ‘had’ will be used.

So, the correct answer is “(b)-had”.

 

 

(4)  

  • (a) a - not used with specific things
  • (b) an - not used with specific things
  • (c) the  -  this is correct
  • (d) some - only used when quantity is talked about

Since the sentence is talking about banks of a specific river, ‘the’ will be used.

So, the correct answer is “(c)-the”.

Thus the correct paragraph is

Last year I visited the same spot even if I was not riding a cycle. I saw that many buildings had   been built on the banks of the Ganga.
