Priya said: (Sep 3, 2013)  
Answer should be (C) Does not do exercise or does not take exercise seriously.

Thomas said: (Sep 29, 2013)  
Take exercise? When do we use this phrase?

Urja said: (Apr 8, 2014)  
How can you say that fatter is wrong?

Fatter in not wrong. Because maybe the guy is already fat.

Meghna said: (Oct 6, 2014)  
Ya, I think the answer should be [C] too. I agree with @Priya and also, 'exercise' can be used as a verb.

Deepthi said: (Oct 29, 2014)  
A person cannot take the exercise, a person can do exercise so [c] is the answer.

Harsh said: (Dec 10, 2014)  
Answer should be "c".

Because he doesn't "do" exercise.

Raji said: (Sep 1, 2015)  
Since the person becoming fatter than before why can't we use "getting fatter" in the sentence.

Priya said: (Nov 6, 2015)  
Why can't it be like he is become in fat?

Sneha said: (Jun 17, 2016)  
We use Fatter in comparative sentence and this sentence is not comparative. That's why here using Fat.

Shashank said: (Nov 28, 2016)  
Fatter than before - this sense makes the use of fatter right here. Also take exercise is an accepted use like in you take the examination. So, I feel the option D 'no error' is likely here.

Sagar. said: (Apr 26, 2017)  
These is not a comparative sentence so not need to write fatter.

Priyanka said: (Aug 31, 2017)  
Answer should be C. Actually, both B and C are incorrect.

Nikita said: (Oct 26, 2017)  
How can someone possibly take exercise?

Yoobaba said: (Jun 26, 2018)  
How does one take exercise?

Pushkar said: (Aug 24, 2018)  
Exercise can take a place of verb or do exercise but never heard we take exercise.

Dhananjay Ray said: (Feb 12, 2019)  
I agree with you @Sneha.

Jos said: (Feb 19, 2019)  
Both Take and Do exercise is correct.

However, the answer 'getting fatter is correct when describing the present condition compared to the past.

Subhashri said: (Feb 17, 2020)  
How do we know he is already not fat? fatter should be accepted.
