Error Correction

Education is a process, which was deemed to (a) .......................... ..........................

develop desirable qualities with people. (b) .......................... ..........................

The need of this quality differs by person to (c) .......................... ..........................

person, place to place but time to time. (d) .......................... ..........................

 

Answer:

  • A. Was: “Was” is used with past tense and not with present tense. So, the correct word is ‘is’.
  • B. With: “With” is used when one thing happens along the other and not used to describe qualities. So, the correct word is ‘in’.
  • C. By: “By” is used when something is done by someone and not used to show any kind of difference. So, the correct word is ‘from’.
  • D. But: “But” is used when only one situation can occur out of two and not when they can occur simultaneously. So, the correct word is ‘and’.

Thus the correct paragraph is

Education is a process, which is deemed to develop desirable qualities in people.  The need of this quality differs from person to person, place to place and time to time.
