- At- “At” is used to point out common nouns such as railway stations, parks etc. and not with proper nouns. India is a proper noun. So, the correct word is “in”.
- Us- “Us” is used when we are talking about things belonging to a group of people and not with verbs. So, the correct word is “we”.
- Greater- “Greater” is the second (comparative) degree of comparison and is used when one thing is compared with another. So, the correct word is “great”.
- Much- “Much” is used when we are talking about the quantity of objects such as rice which cannot be measured individually (it is impossible to count single grains of rice) and not with humans or objects whose quantity can be measured individually. So, the correct word is “many”.
Thus, the correct paragraph is
A Saint walked the Streets of Kolkata
It can happen only in India. It
is time that we realised our
strength. We are great people. We
have so many Religious Leaders.
