Q.4 (a) English Error Correction Exercise

2. She recommended me that I take a few days off from work.


Answer: She recommended me that I take a few days off from work.
We need to use the subjunctive in this example. This page does a nice job
explaining the English subjunctive. The subjunctive form is the infinitive without to
(go, eat, do, run, etc.)
3. I tried to explain him the problem, but he had difficulty understanding
me.
Answer: I tried to explain him the problem the problem to him, but he had difficulty
understanding me.
Some verbs can be followed by the indirect object and then the direct object. For
example, we can say I gave John the book. John is the indirect object and book is
the direct object. However, we cant do this with all verbs. Recommend, explain,
and describe are three common verbs that take the following form:
recommend/explain/describe + WHAT + TO WHOM
6. I dont know why you didnt go. If I were you, I should have gone.
Answer: I dont know why you didnt go. If I were you, I should would have gone.
To talk about a hypothetical past, we can use would/might/could + have +
participle. We do not use should to talk about a hypothetical past. We use should to
criticize past actions or express regret.
7. Kevin says he stopped to travel internationally because of his family.
Answer: Kevin says he stopped to travel traveling internationally because of his
family.
We can use the verb stop with both the gerund and the infinitive. When we use
stopwith the gerund, it means that someone was doing something and then
stopped.
