Definition of Error Identification

Error Identification Questions is a type of English grammar and vocabulary testing exercise. The questions based on errors identification are mostly given in the competitive examinations to check the English speaking ability of the students.

Usually the errors given are based on punctuation error, tenses error, subject-verb disagreement and much more. These grammatical errors are given to test a reader’s skills. Hence, the only way to get your questions correct is practice. Keep practicing more and more error identification questions to understand what errors you can encounter in a sentence. Error Identification is also known as Error Detection or Spotting Error.

Rules –

  • One of the most important rules is to be well-acquainted with English grammar including adjectives, use of tenses, use of conjunctions, pronouns, subject-verb agreement, forms of verbs, interjections, and more wen you answer error identification questions
  • Identifying the role of modifiers is important because if they are placed before the subject, then the sentence becomes grammatically incorrect.
  • Redundancy should be avoided at all costs in order to remove the possible errors from the sentence.
  • Try not to have any parallelism in your verb forms when writing a sentence
  • Consider singular and plural nouns and verb forms with the subject to identify error if there is any
  • The subject and verb should agree in a sentence. Know the rule for subject verb agreement as well
  • Keep an eye on the punctuation and articles (a/an/the)
  • There should be a proper use of question tag. Question tags are used in a sentence to make it from assertive to interrogative
  • Relative Pronoun should also be known because it is the most common error that you may find in any error identification question
  • Read articles and newspapers or books to enhance your vocabulary and grammar
