14. 

(solve as per the direction given above)

[A]. You can get
[B]. all the information that you want
[C]. in this book.
[D]. No error.

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

all the information you want

Akash said: (Oct 29, 2010)  
What is wrong in using "that"?
I think it will be more precise in regard with the information the person is looking for.

Nithin said: (Dec 3, 2010)  
We can use "that" in sentence "B", by replacing "from" in place of "in", in sentence "c".

Rajesh said: (Dec 10, 2010)  
I think "You can get all the information that you want from this book" is correct. Isn't it?

Rajesh Waran said: (Dec 16, 2010)  
Ya option c is the correct answer.

Appu said: (Jan 4, 2011)  
I think "You can collect all the information that u want from this book"

Avinash said: (Jan 10, 2011)  
No appu this is not correct

Manpreet said: (Jan 23, 2011)  
I think we could use "from" instead of "in" in option C

Ravi Kiran said: (Apr 29, 2011)  
The noun information doesnt carry any pronoun. So 'information you want' is correct.

Sheetu said: (May 20, 2011)  
Instead of 'in', 'from' is a better choice.

Ajeet Ghosh said: (Aug 7, 2011)  
I think the right statement is - "you can get all the information you want within this book". Am I right? any query please.

Thakur Kunwar Singh said: (Aug 28, 2011)  
"That" is a demonstrative pronoun i.e. it is used to denote something. In the corrected sentence "all the information you want" already specifies the information that the person wants and hence to accentuate it with "that" is unnecessary.

Praveen Kumar Nartam said: (Sep 11, 2011)  
Here the word 'can' is used hence that is not used.

Hari said: (Sep 21, 2011)  
I think 'in' should be replaced 'from'. Correct sentence:.

You can get all the information that you want from this book.

Priya said: (Nov 8, 2011)  
@ Thakur Kunwar Singh.

Yes, You are right and thanks to give a right reason.

Manoj said: (Dec 7, 2011)  
Its right, if you are using ;THAT; you should replace;in; by from.

Pradip Banerjee said: (Dec 28, 2011)  
The sentence is correct with 'that' also, though it is extraneous.

Ashwini said: (Jan 19, 2012)  
I m agree with Aakash

Prabhath said: (Jan 20, 2012)  
'You can get all of the information that you want in this book'.

Is this right?

Robin said: (May 24, 2012)  
"that you want".. is when some one is asking.. so "you want" is used

Satwik said: (Jun 10, 2012)  
I agree with nithin we can use "from" in 3rd statement.

Amol said: (Aug 23, 2012)  
I think there should be 's' after word 'want'. Am I right ?

Thechosenone said: (Sep 4, 2012)  
Correctly stated by some. This question can have two right answers, one as given and another -
"You can get all the information you want from this book."

Pradeep said: (Sep 22, 2013)  
I couldn't understand why the word "that" is omitted there?

Debjeet said: (Oct 7, 2013)  
That is rightfully placed here,

But instead of "in", "from" used be used in the last sentence.

Kalyan said: (Oct 25, 2013)  
Yeah it is from this book not in this book.

Dhanya.R.Nair said: (Dec 16, 2013)  
More apt answer is using 'from' instead of 'in'. I don't think that the answer written is right.

Shashank said: (Dec 16, 2013)  
I think "You can get all the information that you want from this book. " should be the correct answer.

Santosh said: (Feb 27, 2014)  
I think "you will get all the information that you want from this book".

Swapnil said: (Mar 12, 2014)  
"That" is a demonstrative pronoun i.e. it is used to denote something. In the corrected sentence "all the information you want" already specifies the information that the person wants and hence to accentuate it with "that" is unnecessary.

Kiruba Kingsly said: (Jun 5, 2014)  
Instead of "all" the information we can use "any" information that you want from this book RIGHT?

Romi said: (Aug 9, 2014)  
I thought there was no error.

But now I got to know this is just way of saying emphasis is on book the person both are correct.

But if we observe the wrong sentence it already told us that book has all information it doesn't matter at all what you want to search only that book is needed.

Anoop Mohan said: (Sep 12, 2014)  
Can we use "from" instead of "in" in option C ?

Charu said: (Oct 10, 2014)  
"You can get all the information you want from this book. " is correct sentence. So answer will be option B & C.

Srishti said: (Dec 24, 2014)  
"all ___ you want" stands instead of "all that you want" here ___ or information replaces the 'that in the original phrase.

Sagar said: (Jan 2, 2015)  
In option C we can use "is in this book".

Shanmugam said: (Jul 8, 2015)  
What is wrong using "that"?

Shanmugam said: (Jul 8, 2015)  
What is wrong using "that"?

Kkdream said: (Jul 28, 2015)  
Reflexive pronoun is used information.

Which you want?

Ref pronoun: who, which.

Ane Far said: (Sep 4, 2015)  
About the book is more perfect.

Tyr said: (Sep 14, 2015)  
Everyone, please stop the over action.

Selma said: (Sep 23, 2015)  
I think we can use from instead of in.

Angel said: (Sep 24, 2015)  
What is the right answer?

Manawapati Sruthi said: (Sep 25, 2015)  
Option C 'from this book' instead of in this book.

Ajay said: (Sep 29, 2015)  
I think the answer is you will get.

Narasimha said: (Oct 8, 2015)  
The word all takes the relative pronoun that so answer given is wrong. Therefore answer is no error.

Prvn said: (Mar 15, 2016)  
Still I'm not getting. So please explain clearly.

Shy said: (May 18, 2016)  
Option C should be "From this Book" instead of "in this book".

Indrajit said: (May 24, 2016)  
Here, "that" limits a sentence while "which" defines so "that" is used for compulsory information and after "which" is used for a not compulsory additional information.

Strategy: Try removing "that" from a sentence if you encounter it. If the sentence still holds its sense then remove that or convert it to which.

Similarly with "which" try removing it and check if sentence holds sense if yes then correct if no then change it to "that".

Vishal said: (Jun 29, 2016)  
Can we no use "piece of information" instead of "all the information" ?

Please tell me.

Siri said: (Sep 20, 2016)  
I'm not getting please give me the clear solution.

Aman said: (Sep 23, 2016)  
I think that option 'c' is wrong. Because from will be more accurate than in the book.

Vamshi said: (Sep 25, 2016)  
Because of redundancy.

Himalay said: (Sep 26, 2016)  
That the word is superfluous in this sentence.

Sach said: (Oct 3, 2016)  
Option C is correct since if we change into from.

Bin Mandol said: (Oct 6, 2016)  
Information is a uncountable noun. To be counted, it takes measure words before it. So it would be, ''all pieces of information''.

Abhishek Upadhyay said: (Oct 13, 2016)  
I think we don't use 'all' with the information, You can get the information.

Gangareddy said: (Oct 27, 2016)  
I think which should be used instead of that in the above sentence.

Akash said: (Dec 24, 2016)  
Why that is not allowed in the sentence?

Shreya said: (Mar 13, 2017)  
Why that cannot be used here?

Bikram said: (Mar 16, 2017)  
I think `that` cannot be used.

Menchu said: (Mar 23, 2017)  
It thinks is it either:.

You can get all the information that you want in this book.
Or
You can get all the information you want from this book.

Madhavan said: (Apr 27, 2017)  
Why that can't be used there?

Priya said: (Jun 16, 2017)  
'that' is specific.

While 'all' is general meaning and no determiner.

You can get all the information you want in this book.

Rishi said: (Jul 2, 2017)  
@Kunwar Singh.

You are right. Thank you.

Birju said: (Sep 4, 2017)  
It should be 'all the informations'.

Dipi said: (Sep 24, 2017)  
There is no error, so option D should be the right answer.

Devdatta said: (Oct 11, 2017)  
Here 'that' is used as a relative prepositional pronoun for the noun 'information'. So there is nothing wrong in using 'that'.

Tarun said: (Dec 11, 2017)  
The sentence is showing possibillity.

So instead of can, Could should be used.

So option A is correct.

Irul Kumar said: (Apr 18, 2018)  
I think 'from this book' is correct.

Yamini said: (Jun 13, 2018)  
There is no error in the sentence. So, Option D is correct.

Vipul said: (Jun 23, 2018)  
What about you will get?

Preeti said: (Aug 19, 2018)  
I think the right answer is "get all the information that you want to this book".

Sahana said: (Oct 10, 2018)  
The option C should be " from this book".

Anomie said: (Oct 12, 2018)  
I think that "the " should not use just before information.

Debalina said: (Oct 22, 2018)  
I think it will be "all the informations".

Dorai said: (May 29, 2019)  
I am not getting the answer clearly. Please, anyone, explain me.

Cenutakor said: (Jul 17, 2019)  
Why is that the answer is not (c)?

Since the person will be obtaining information and if not for the first time retrieving information *from* somewhere.

Prajjwal said: (Jul 23, 2019)  
Actually, we are in the present tense, so there is no need to write ' that'.

Akansh said: (Aug 16, 2019)  
It can also be;

You can get all the information that you want from this book.

Chhavi said: (Sep 14, 2020)  
@Akash.

I Think it's all correct. There is no error in it. To be more precise we can use 'that's.

Kedar said: (Jan 10, 2021)  
"The" is already present to speak about specific information. So "that" is not needed anymore.

Dhwani Kant said: (May 21, 2021)  
Yes, I also think the same.

You can get all the information you want from this book.

"That" may or may not be there. It's correct "that" is a demonstrative word but it may or may not apply here.

Abhiram said: (Jun 2, 2021)  
Instead of "can" I think "will" is more correct in first line.
