The precies must be attempted in natural way according to the concept and topic of the precise given. Sometimes its good to write in first person but in some topics first person approach seems eccentric.

Let me tell you one thing, if the word author is used continuously it would seem bizarre. This is a kind of autobiography and it's better to use first person for the sake of clarification, as has been used at the place wherefrom the passage was copy pasted.

Common man thinks that the laws of country and indivisual freedom are opposit to each other. Apparently this does not seems wrong. Every law has some restrictions to citizens in different form. The more are the laws of a country the the higher are the collective restrictions. The indivisual liberty gets pressed due to more restrictions. In opposit to it, the circle of indivisual freem gets broader if the number of laws are reduced.

Paragraph

"what happend to john? " asked Helena to West. "he left the company" was the answer from West. "he asked me for a rise but I didnt give to him" said West. "why didnt you gave him rise?" inquired Helen. West replied "he was so lazy". Helen further asked "has he found another job?". "yes, he is working in a film company"answered West. Helen continued asking "what is his salary like?" "I think he earns quite alot" was the answer from West. "does he like the new job? " continued Helen. West responded " i dont know"



Correction would be respected. Best of luck to all who appeared!
Waoo...great sir...you did wonder...you are so fortunate.

Q.2

SUMMARIZE IN NOT MORE THAN 120 WORDS, DESCRIBING THE AUTHOR'S TRIP IN CHEROKEE. YOU MAY ADOPT THE AUTHOR'S POINT OF VIEW

During my vacation last May, I had a hard time choosing a tour. Flights to Japan, Hong Kong and Australia are just too common. What I wanted was somewhere exciting and exotic, a place where I could be spared from the holiday tour crowds. I was so happy when Joan called up, suggesting a trip to Cherokee, a county in the state of Oklahoma. I agreed and went off with the preparation immediately.
We took a flight to Cherokee and visited a town called Qualla Boundary Surrounded by magnificent mountain scenery, the town painted a paradise before us. With its Oconaluftee Indian Village reproducing tribal crafts and lifestyles of the 18th century and the outdoor historical pageant Unto These Hillsplaying six times weekly in the summer nights, Qualla Boundary tries to present a brief image of the Cherokee past to the tourists.
Despite the language barrier, we managed to find our way to the souvenir shops with the help of the natives. The shops are filled with rubber tomahawks and colorful traditional war bonnets, made of dyed turkey feathers. Tepees, cone-shaped tents made from animal skin, are also pitched near the shops. "Welcome! Want to get anything ?" We looked up and saw a middle-aged man smiling at us. We were very surprised by his fluent English. He introduced himself as George and we ended up chatting till lunch time when he invited us for lunch at a nearby coffee shop.
"Sometimes, I've to work from morning to sunset during the tour season. Anyway, this is still better off than being a woodcutter ..." Remembrance weighed heavy on George's mind and he went on to tell us that he used to cut firewood for a living but could hardly make ends meet. We learnt from him that the Cherokees do not depend solely on trade for survival. During the tour off-peak period, the tribe would have to try out other means for income. One of the successful ways is the "Bingo Weekend". On the Friday afternoons of the Bingo weekends, a large bingo hall will be opened, attracting huge crowds of people to the various kinds of games like the Super Jackpot and the Warrior Game Special. According to George, these forms of entertainment fetch them great returns.
Our final stop in Qualla Boundary was at the museum where arts, ranging from the simple hand-woven oak baskets to wood and stone carvings of wolves, ravens and other symbols of Cherokee cosmology are displayed.
Back at home, I really missed the place and I would of course look forward to the next trip to another exotic place.

Q.4 (a) English Error Correction Exercise

2. She recommended me that I take a few days off from work.
Answer: She recommended me that I take a few days off from work.
We need to use the subjunctive in this example. This page does a nice job explaining the English subjunctive. The subjunctive form is the infinitive without “to” (go, eat, do, run, etc.)
3. I tried to explain him the problem, but he had difficulty understanding me.
Answer: I tried to explain him the problem the problem to him, but he had difficulty understanding me.
Some verbs can be followed by the indirect object and then the direct object. For example, we can say “I gave John the book.” John is the indirect object and book is the direct object. However, we can’t do this with all verbs. Recommend, explain, and describe are three common verbs that take the following form:
recommend/explain/describe + WHAT + TO WHOM
6. I don’t know why you didn’t go. If I were you, I should have gone.
Answer: I don’t know why you didn’t go. If I were you, I should would have gone.
To talk about a hypothetical past, we can use would/might/could + have + participle. We do not use should to talk about a hypothetical past. We use should to criticize past actions or express regret.
7. Kevin says he stopped to travel internationally because of his family.
Answer: Kevin says he stopped to travel traveling internationally because of his family.
We can use the verb stop with both the gerund and the infinitive. When we use stopwith the gerund, it means that someone was doing something and then stopped.

Q.6 (a)
1. adverse, averse
Adverse means inauspicious, hostile; averse means disinclined, repelled.
“I’m very much averse to making a long, arduous journey under such adverse weather conditions.”

2. altogether, all together
Altogether means wholly; all together means everybody in a group:
“It’s altogether too bad that you can’t come.”
“All together, now: ‘Good morning, Sir!’”

3. allude, elude
Allude means to refer to; elude means to dodge or escape.

4. braise, braze
Braise means to cook slowly in liquid (usually meat); braze most commonly means to solder with an alloy of copper and zinc.

5. curb, kerb
Curb means to control, as in “curb your temper”, while kerb is the edge of a footpath or sidewalk.

6. faze, phase
The most common error is the use of phase when the writer means faze. To faze someone is to fluster or confuse them, whereas phase is mostly used in reference to a stage in someone’s life—though it can be a stage in almost anything else:
“Like most children, Danny’s going through a phase of refusing to eat his vegetables.”
“Nothing fazes my mother, who can produce a meal for unexpected guests at a moment’s notice.”

7. maybe, may be
Another tricky one, best explained by demonstration:
“Maybe you could explain this to us a little clearer.”
“It may be a good idea to give us a clearer explanation of this.”

8. moat, mote
Somebody found this confusion in Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. Moat is a deep, wide ditch surrounding a castle, fort or town. Usually filled with water, it is intended as a defence against attack. Mote is a tiny piece of substance, as in motes of dust that can show up in a sunbeam. Apparently Meyer had written “dust moats”.

when you write a precise you have to use the third person .i.e 'one' has to go through the rules of precise before attempting it on the exam day.
