S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. Do away with means: to remove it completely.
It is wishful thinking you can improve the situation by doing away with such people is the correct usage.

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. “To” is a preposition which is used to add direction, thus “to” should be used after go not “for”. Moreover, ‘go to the cinema/theatre/station’ is idiomatic. Thus option (b) is correct.

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. No improvement

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. We use “in” when something happens in natural disaster or in any mis-happening.

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. ‘Hang by a thread’ is an idiom which means ‘be in a highly precarious state’. Thus option (b) is correct.

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. “Put on” means to wear something. And for the “makeup” we use “wear”. Hence option (a) is correct.

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. Fall through( phrasal verb): come to nothing; fail and hence denotes the failure of the trip.

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. “sweet” and “caring” both are positive adjective thus they should not be joined with any contrasting conjunctions, ‘but’ is a contrasting conjunction. Thus option (b) is correct.

S9. Ans.(d)
Sol. No improvement

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. “Broken it too” should be used. “just” shows that there is after effect of the action also thus to show the after effect of the action done before “too” should be used and as the first part of the sentence is in past indefinite thus next should be in past indefinite also as both are cause and effect of each other. Thus option (b) is correct.
