Q:

Which sentence is punctuated correctly?

A) One question you should always ask yourself: “Am I pleased with the results?” B) Always ask yourself this question: “Am I pleased with the results?
C) Always ask yourself a question like: “Am I pleased with the results?” D) One question you should always ask yourself is: “Am I pleased with the results?”
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) One question you should always ask yourself: “Am I pleased with the results?”

Explanation:

The second would employ a comma, or semi-colon, and not a colon so it is not properly punctuated.

 

The third sentence would not be correct because it uses 'like', usually used for comparison. Since you are not comparing two questions, it would not be appropriate.

 

The fourth sentence has 'is' before the colon, which is a implies declaration and not listing. So, again, it would not be appropriate.

 

Hence, the first sentence, however, is punctuated correctly.

Q:

Read each part of the sentence to find out if there is any error in it. The error, if any, will be in one part of the sentence. The number of that part is the answer.

As much as i admire him for his talent(1) / and endeavor to achieve success(2)/ 

I cannot forgive him for being so(3)/rude to the not so well to do ones(4)

 

A) (1) B) (2)
C) (3) D) (4)
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) (1)

Explanation:

The error lies in part (1). 

As the phrase 'as much as' needs to be replaced with 'much as I'. This is because we use 'as much as' for comparing two qualities or things. But here in the given sentence a contrast is given in the latter part of the sentence. So we need a conjunction like 'even though' 'although' etc...

'Much as I' also serves the same purpose.
