GATE | GATE-CS-2014-(Set-3) | Question 1

While trying to collect(I) an envelope from under the table (II), Mr. X fell down (III) and was losing consciousness (IV)

Which one of the above underlined parts of the sentence is NOT appropriate?
(A) I
(B) II
(C) III
(D) IV


Answer: (D)

Explanation: Here, part IV is incorrect. “was losing consciousness” shows continuous process of losing consciousness, but he was not in the process, rather he just lost consciousness.
So, the correction is ” was losing consciousness ”  → ” lost consciousness “.

 

Thus, IV is the correct choice.
