4. (A) much (B) many (C) more (D) less

 

Answer:

(1)  

  • (a) does - not used to show disagreement
  • (b) does not - not used with plural
  • (c) don’t - this is correct
  • (d) do -   not used to show disagreement

Since the sentence is in simple present tense and is talking about a group of children , ‘don’t’ will be used.

So, the correct answer is “(c)-don’t”

(2)  

  • (a) lack - this is correct
  •  (b) lacked - used with past tense
  • (c) have lacked - not used with simple present tense
  • (d) had lacked - not used with present tense

Since the sentence is in simple present tense , ‘lack’ will be used.

So, the correct answer is “(a)-lack”.

(3)  

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

Since the sentence is in simple present tense with ‘schools’ being plural , ‘are’ will be used.

So, the correct answer is “(b)-are”.

(4)  

  • (a) much - not used with numbers
  • (b) many - not used with numbers
  • (c) more - this is correct
  • (d) less - used when something is in a smaller quantity as compared to the other

Since the sentence is talking about the number of sports periods given by school which is greater than two ,  ‘more’ will be used.

So, the correct answer is “(c)-more”.

Thus the correct paragraph is

Most Indian schools fail to ensure their students adequate playtime and fitness regime. Two out  of every five school going children don’t have a healthy Body Mass Index (BMI) and 50%  lack adequate lower body strength. Some schools are found to offer three or more physical  education periods per week.
