Answer

(1)  

  • (a) want - not used with past tense
  • (b) wants - not used with past tense
  • (c) wanted -  this is correct
  • (d) wanting- only used in continuous tenses.

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

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

(2)  

  • (a) on - only used when position of an object is described
  • (b) of -  this is correct
  • (c) in - used when position of an object is described
  • (d) for - not relevant

Since the sentence is talking about who the picture belonged to , ‘of’ will be used.

So, the correct answer is “(b)-of”.

(3)  

  • (a) hard - not used as a verb
  • (b) harder - used as a degree of comparison
  • (c) hardest - used as a degree of comparison
  • (d) hardly - this is correct

Since the sentence is using hard as a verb , ‘hardly’ will be used.

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

(4)  

  • (a) for - not relevant
  • (b) with - not relevant
  • (c) to - this is correct
  • (d) at edition - not relevant

Since the sentence is talking about a person to whom ‘no’ had to be said ,  ‘to’ will be used.

So, the correct answer is “(c)-to”.

Thus the correct paragraph is

A young person wanted a picture of both of us with ‘Selfie’. I could hardly say ‘no’ to him.
