Answers :

1) Answer: B

To show unreality we need to use second form of verb. Thus ‘was’ should be replace with ‘were’.

2) Answer: A

Remove ‘the’ before English because we don’t use “the” before language.

3) Answer: A

It should be “of” in place of “with”.

4) Answer: A

First clause is a conditional clause and we should not use will in conditional clause as it is already used in main clause. Thus remove ‘will’ from the first part of the sentence.

5) Answer: B

It should be “would” in place of ‘should’ because to show the result we should use will and past form will is would.

7) Answer: D

8) Answer: C

9) Answer: A

10) Answer: A

stood out is a phrase which means to be prominent or conspicuous against a background of someone or something.
