The correct sentence is "Shalini is a proficient horse rider", 'a' was missing but, the options given were confusing as it could be associated with option A and option B as well

Ans 1:

Class : Class 8
Yes...its option c

Ans 2:

Class : Class 8
In my opinion, option a may be correct in some contexts but when such an appropriate option as option c is there, it should be option c as it is more correct. Olympiad questions are confusing in such a way where they may have two or even more correct answers but in this exercise it is my opinion that in options a and c, c is more appropriate.

Ans 3:

Class : Class 9
Option C

Ans 4:

Class : Class 8
Sway also means to control

Ans 5:

Class : Class 5
Both A and C are correct.

Ans 6:

Class : Class 8

Ans 7:

Class : Class 8
It seems to be option C

Ans 8:

Class : Class 8
In my opinion, it is both option (A).Sway (as a verb) is similar to the verb 'control', or 'influence'. It is used in a sentence as such: Mcdonald is very easily swayed by other people's opinions, he's never made so much as a decision by himself in his life. Sway (as a noun) is not similar to the word deviation. Sway means to swing or oscillate, which, generally, means 'to move around a fixed point in a regular manner'. For example: The child swayed slightly on his feet as he waited for his name to be called. Deviation, on the other hand, (as a noun) means 'to stray from a recommended/accepted path'. For example: Harry's deviation from the standard methods (written in the book 'Advanced Potion-Making', by Libatius Borage) earned him many compliments from Slughorn.Thus, the answer is option (A) in my opinion.

Ans 9:

Class : Class 8
NO.......its option A

Ans 10:

Class : Class 8
It’s option c mostly

Ans 11:

Class : Class 8
Option C also seems correct as "sway" means "control" only when it is used in the expression "held sway".

Ans 12:

Class : Class 9
I think it's option C

Ans 13:

Class : Class 8
Yes...its option c

No freaking error. You have to be an inmate of a mental asylum to say that the correct option is 'C'.

Ans 10:

Class : Class 8
There is no error in "work everyday", it should be D). If anyone thinks that "everyday" and "every day" are different, in this context, they are not. Please fix this.

READ THE PASSAGE AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS THAT FOLLOW.
Though the U.S. prides itself on being a leader in the world community, a recent report shows that it lags far behind other industrialised countries in meeting the needs of its youngest and most vulnerable citizens. The U.S. has a higher infant mortality-rate, a higher proportion of low birth-weight babies, a smaller proportion of babies immunised against childhood diseases and a much higher rate of adolescent pregnancies. These findings, described as a 'quiet crisis' requires immediate and far-reaching action. Research shows that a fourth of the nation's 12 million infants and toddlers live in poverty. As many as half confront risk factors that could harm their ability to develop intellectually, physically and socially. Child immunisations are too low, more children are born into poverty, more are in substandard care while their parents work and more are being raised by single parents. When taken together, these and other risk factors can lead to educational and health problems that are much harder and more costly to reverse.
The crisis begins in the womb with unplanned parenthood. Women with unplanned pregnancies are less likely to seek pre-natal care. In the U.S. 80% of teenage pregnancies and 56% of all pregnancies are unplanned. The problems continue after birth where unplanned pregnancies and unstable partnerships often go hand in hand. Since 1950, the number of single parent families has nearly tripled. More than 25 percent of all births today are to unmarried mothers. As the number of single parent families grow and more women enter the work force, infants and toddlers are increasingly in the care of people other than their parents.
Most disturbingly, recent statistics show that American parents are increasingly neglecting or abusing their children. Babies under the age of one are the fastest growing category of children entering foster care. The crisis affects children under the age of three most severely, the report says. Yet, it is this period-from infancy through pre-school years-that sets the stage for a child's future.
The 'Quiet Crisis' severely affects the children belonging to the age group ___________.

A between one and three years
B between two and three years
C below one year
D below three years


the answer wasn't given clearly in passage.

Ans 1:

Class : Class 9
The answer is below one year as it is said in the passage that “These findings described as the quiet crisis requires immediate and far reaching action. One fourth of the nation’s 12 million infants and toddlers live in poverty” As infants are below 1 year..that must be the answer

Ans 2:

Class : Class 8
It doesn't make sense, as it is quoted children under 3 years are most severely affected.

Ans 3:

Class : Class 8
I think the answer should be option D- below 3 years. To quote the passage, "The crisis affects children under the age of three most severely, the report says."

Ans 4:

Class : Class 8
Shouldn't the answer be 'd' as they mention it "affects the children below the age of three most severely"

Ans 5:

Class : Class 8
In my opinion, the answer should be Option (D) instead of Option (C), as, according to the final paragraph of the passage, it is written as "The crisis affects children under the age of three years most severely, the report says.". As it is clearly, mentioned, children under the age of 'three' years suffer most severely.

Ans 6:

Class : Class 9
the answer should be D it is clearly stated in the passage

Ans 7:

Class : Class 8
It is Dit is d

Ans 8:

Class : Class 8
I think that the answer has to be D because it is written clearly that "The crisis affects children under the age of three most severely

Ans 9:

Class : Class 9
I think its D

The correct answer is option c. It is completely correct to say “there is A need” but wrong to say that “there is a need to REVISING the school timings.”,it should be to REVISE the school timings...thus the answer is option c. Hope you found it helpful!

why can't it be divide

Ans 3:

Class : Class 6

Ans 4:

Class : Class 5
Divide is more appropriate than open. It may be an error from the SOF side.

Ans 5:

Class : Class 5
The answer is divide. There is an error from the SOF side. Anyways, there are many answers given by this website which are wrong.

Ans 6:

Class : Class 5
yup, but if it is showing wrong, think of the next possibility! open?

Ans 7:

Class : Class 2

Ans 8:

Class : Class 8
answer is c divide

Ans 9:

Class : Class 5
The answer is c as divide makes more sense here. If it was not present, then it would have been open.

Ans 10:

Class : Class 6
As per internet, it should be option C. But it is showing wrong..

Ans 11:

Class : Class 9
I think Divide is correct answer.

Ans 12:

Class : Class 6

Ans 13:

Class : Class 5
Yes the correct answer should be divide ( option c) .

Ans 14:

Class : Class 6
Open can be the antonym of bridge but divide makes more sense. If divide was not there in the options, then it could have been open

Ans 15:

Class : Class 4
Option c is right as per the Internet. Open doesn't sound right either.

Ans 16:

Class : Class 6
Divide ought to be the correct answer as it means to separate. If it was not in the options, then open could have been considered. Bridge means to connect for which divide is its antonym.

Ans 17:

Class : Class 5
Divide is more appropriate option. SOF's answer key is probably showing the wrong answer.

Ans 18:

Class : Class 5
I think it should be option c as bridge means 'to join' and antonym for this has to be 'divide'.
