Answers :-

1. (a); ‘Table’s legs’ should be changed into ‘legs of table’. ‘s’ is generally not used with non living things.

2. (a); Change ‘sceneries’ into ‘scenery’. Scenery is an uncountable noun.

3. (b);‘take pains’ is correct. It means ‘to work hard’.

4. (c); If a noun comes on the either side of a preposition, the noun will come in singular form. ‘Page after Page’ is correct.

5. (c); Change ‘cousin sisters’ into ‘cousins’

6. (b); Surrounding is the ‘ing’ form of verb ‘surround’. Use ‘Surroundings’. It means the area around someone or something.

7. (b); ‘Criteria’ is plural of ‘criterion’.

8. (b); ‘Poetry’ is an uncountable noun. Hence it is singular and it does not have any plural form.

9. (c); Change ‘luggages’ into ‘luggage’. It is an uncountable noun. Hence it must be in singular form.

10.(c); ‘Ground’ means the surface of earth. Change ‘ground’ into ‘floor’.
