- Ate- “Ate” is the second form (past) of the verb and not used when we are talking in present tense. So, the correct word is “eat”.
- 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”.
- Much- “ Much” is not used as a degree of comparison. So, the correct word is “more”.
- On- ”On” is a preposition which usually tells about the position of an object/human which is situated or kept above a certain object and one does not live on the world. So, the correct word is “in”
Thus, the correct paragraph is
We, here in India have so many
religions, we eat so many different
foods, we wear so many different
kinds of dresses. Still we are more
united than any other Country in the World.
