Identifying Sentence Errors
The following sentence contains
either a single error or no error at all. If the sentence contains an error,
select the one underlined part that must be changed to make the sentence
correct. If the sentence contains no error, select choice E.
(A) The word “in” is the correct preposition to
indicate a location such as Montana.
(B) The phrase “up to” is an idiomatically
correct way to inform readers that the layers will not be more than 90 feet
(C) The word “and” is the correct conjunction to
demonstrate the relationship between these two measurements. There is no contrast between the two
requiring a word such as “but,” and the two measurements do not depend on each
other so they do not require a word such as “so.”
(D) You are already given a number to describe
the thickness of the layers, so you must have a way of telling what the second
number measures. The word “across”
provides the needed information.
(E) You found no errors. Remember that you are not looking to revise
the sentence; you are only looking for errors.
answer is (E).
