1. In the following question, a sentence is given with a blank to be filled in with an appropriate word. Select the correct alternative and mark it as your answer.

The governmental efforts spurred dramatic improvements in the way waste management is _________ out in many hospitals.

1. Carried
2. Conduct
3. Disposed
4. One

Solution:

The correct answer is Option , i.e. ‘Carried’.

Among the given options ‘carried’ can only be used with ‘out’. ‘Carried out’ means ‘done, performed or conducted’.

‘Conduct’ means ‘to carry out’, and ‘conduct out’ will disturb the meaning of the sentence.

‘One’ and ‘Disposed’ make the sentence meaningfully and structurally incorrect.

1. In the following question, a sentence is given with a blank to be filled in with an appropriate word. Select the correct alternative and mark it as your answer.

At present, the global supply of wheat is the lowest it has been _________ the past fifty years.

1. For
2. Since
3. To
4. Of

Solution:

The correct answer is Option , i.e. ‘For’.

The correct preposition, which should be used here is ‘for’ as it is given that ‘the supply has been lowest for some period of time’.

Usage of ‘for’: We use ‘for’ when we measure the duration – when we say how long something lasts.

Hence,  For + a period of time.

For example: I have lived here for ten years.

Usage of ‘since’: ‘Since’ gives the starting point of actions, events or states. It refers to when things began.

Hence, Since + a point in time (in the past), until now.

For example: I have known him since January.
