Ans1: (c) ‘at’ will replace ‘on’ because ‘at’ preposition is used for pointing out specific time. Hence, at 10 o’clock is the right usage.

Ans2: (b) the will be used before first because the (definite article) is used before ordinal numbers.

Ans3: (b) would will replace will because in Indirect speech will changes into would.

Ans4: (a) The most commonly used word is ‘people’. ‘Persons’ is very rarely used.

Ans5: (b) leap at something: to accept a chance or an opportunity quickly. Hence, at the opportunity is the right usage.

Ans6: (c) here, the family was going to the party is the right usage.

Ans7: (c) Here, of one century and a half is the right usage.

Ans8: (b) The sentence is in the past tense; hence she would be moving is the right usage.
