Getting to hire
as the assistant to a pastry chef
seemed like a dream come true
Ans: Getting to hire
The sentence is starting with a gerund and implying as the narrator is feeling happy to have got the job of the assistant to a pastry chef. Therefore, instead of ‘to hire’, the past participle ‘hired’ must be used to make the sentence meaningful.

and the consequences damage
arises out of dumping about 5 to 13 million tonnes
of plastic into the ocean each year

Students from around the world
to online education.
have increasing started opting to
Ans: have increasing started opting to
As we can observe that the sentence is made in Present Perfect Tense (Have + V3), usage of ‘increasing’ is ungrammatical in the sentence. Instead of it, the adverb ‘increasingly’ should be used here. Besides, the verb ‘opt’ always takes preposition ‘for’ after it. Therefore, ‘to’ must be replaced by ‘for’ to make it a grammatically correct sentence.
Religious bigots look away
on anyone who does not conform
to their beliefs
Ans: Religious bigots look away
Usage of the phrasal verb 'look away' which means ‘avert one's gaze' is inappropriate in this sentence.
'Look down on' which means ‘to consider someone or something lesser or inferior in some way’ would be suitable in this context. Hence ‘look down on’ should be used in place of ‘look away on’ to make the sentence grammatically and contextually correct.

activities such as taking a stroll down
Having leisure till outdoor
Ans: Having leisure till outdoor
The word ‘leisure’ must be followed by the preposition ‘for’ instead of ‘till’ in this context. The expression “leisure for” means ‘free time for’.
Hence ‘for’ should be used in place of ‘till’ to make the sentence grammatically and contextually correct.

for the reconstruction of houses flattened in the 2015 earthquake.
to Nepal by giving them 2.1 billion Nepalese rupees
Ans: India lent a helpful handshake
The correct idiomatic expression is 'a helping hand' and not ‘a helpful handshake'. Hence ‘a helping hand’ should be used in place of ‘a helpful handshake’ to make the sentence grammatically correct.

all over the city looked at the perfect location
to set up his factory

The sentence implies that the person (subject) is in search of a location for his factory setup. Therefore, the only participle that goes well with the context of the sentence is 'looking for'.
