  • Last Updated : 08 Mar, 2021

Consider the following sentences:

  • (i) Everybody in the class is prepared for the exam.
  • (ii) Babu invited Danish to his home because he enjoys playing chess.

Which of the following is the CORRECT observation about the above two sentences?

(A) (i) is grammatically correct and (ii) is unambiguous
(B) (i) is grammatically incorrect and (ii) is unambiguous
(C) (i) is grammatically correct and (ii) is ambiguous
(D) (i) is grammatically incorrect and (ii) is ambiguous


Answer: (C)

Explanation: Statement (i) is grammatically correct, (everybody is singular which uses singular verb).

Statement (ii) is ambiguous because if “Babu invited Danish to his home and he enjoys playing chess” that does not mean Danish also enjoys playing chess.
His purpose of invitation is not clear.
