Verbal Ability - Spotting Errors - Discussion

Discussion :: Spotting Errors - Section 1 (Q.No.37)

Read each sentence to find out whether there is any grammatical error in it. The error, if any will be in one part of the sentence. The letter of that part is the answer. If there is no error, the answer is 'D'. (Ignore the errors of punctuation, if any).


(solve as per the direction given above)

[A]. The reason Ram
[B]. is absent from his duty
[C]. is because he is unwell.
[D]. No error.

Answer: Option A


The reason why Ram

Shilpa said: (Mar 6, 2011)  
Option C is also the answer.

Is he is unwell.

Hema said: (Mar 27, 2011)  
You are correct shilpa.

Nithin said: (Jun 9, 2011)  
No thats wrong in your sentence your raising a question option a is correct.

Jhandu said: (Jun 11, 2011)  
"Ram is absent from his duty because he is unwell."
This is right ans. otherwise the sentence is becoming redundant.

Vertika said: (Aug 2, 2011)  
" thet he is unwell."

Ayush said: (Sep 12, 2011)  
Because cannot be used after the word 'reason'. The correct answer is "the reason ram is absent from his duty is that he is unwell".

Preethi said: (Sep 20, 2011)  
Was absent from his duty.

Juls said: (Oct 6, 2011)  
It should be, the reason WHY, is THAT (not because) he is unwell.

Pradip Banerjee said: (Dec 28, 2011)  
@JULS is correct.

Waqas Marwat said: (Sep 18, 2012)  
I think we can replace "because", in option C, by "that" to correct the statement.

Rahul Poddar said: (Jul 18, 2013)  
It can also be "The reason Ram is absent from his duty is that he is unwell".

Gaurav said: (Sep 15, 2013)  
There are two mistakes in this question firstly it should be 'the reason why ram' and further 'that' should come instead of'because' in sentence C.

Brijendra said: (Sep 20, 2013)  
The reason is never followed by because. Its a thumb rule. 'that' should be used in place of because.

007 said: (Oct 23, 2013)  
I think D is the answer as it can be said that.

The reason ram is absent from his duty.
Is because he is unwell.
Hence D is correct.

Well I can be wrong if so please tell me whats the correct explanation.

Vinod said: (Jan 17, 2014)  
Why not C is correct?

Amishi said: (Aug 22, 2014)  
Using 'because' after 'reason' is a redundancy error. Hence the correct sentence would be "the reason ram is absent from his duties is that he is unwell".

Vaibhav said: (Oct 10, 2014)  
Even it can be ram is absent to his duty.

Salman said: (Feb 25, 2015)  
The sentence seems correct to me though the use of because is silly.

Vishnu said: (Jun 5, 2015)  
Is there a word UNWELL in English language?

1234 said: (Sep 1, 2015)  
How can you justify that reason should not be followed by because can I have any examples?

Nitish Pal said: (Oct 6, 2015)  
'Because' is not used with 'the reason'.

Nisha said: (Nov 30, 2015)  
The answer is Ram is not a reason.

Praveen said: (Jul 24, 2016)  
I think option C is also an answer.

Khalid Saif said: (Aug 22, 2016)  
C should be the answer. "Because" should not be used with "Reason".

Harshal said: (Sep 29, 2016)  
Option C is also the correct answer.

Honey Sharma said: (Nov 4, 2016)  
The reason ram is absent from his duty because he is not well. Please tell me this sentence is correct or not.

Neethu said: (Nov 11, 2016)  
When "absent" should follow "himself"?

Absent is reflective, right?

Tanmoy G said: (Feb 4, 2017)  
I think option D is the correct choice as it can be said as an answer to a question asking "Why is Ram absent from his duty?".

Rizwan said: (Mar 14, 2017)  
According to me, Reason and because can't stay together.

Gayatri said: (May 1, 2017)  
I think "from his duty" is wrong. Can we use it like that?

Anil said: (Jul 11, 2017)  
Why not For his duty?

Smit said: (Jul 31, 2017)  
"why" is used to justify "because", so there will be no redundancy error.

Queentoire said: (May 16, 2018)  
Reason and why can't go together, because they both have the same meaning. So, you either use WHY OR REASON, but definitely not both in a sentence. Eg using affirmative and yes together.

Asif said: (Feb 1, 2019)  
"The reason why" is always folowed by "that". Here in sentence 'a' "why" is absent so we have to put" why" in it, but sentence 'c' is also not right as per rule.

Nishant said: (Jul 19, 2021)  
Why it can't be B? It should be for duty.
