READ THE PASSAGE AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS THAT FOLLOW
Belgian J.J. Etienne Lenoir was the first to take out a car on the public highway in September 1863. Since then driving has come a long way. So has the concept of various types of cars to suit the various needs of people. Why do different people want to buy different cars? This is because the car is not just used as a necessity, but, is also a status symbol.
People buy different types of cars; get them upgraded by changing their hydraulic system, getting them painted and often having different car accessories on them. They, then display them in front of their friends and families and to everyone else. Due to the need of cars increasing day-by-day, there are various types of cars. There are the mini cars, the economy cars, the convertibles, the sports cars, the vans and the mini vans and many more.
The model and the year they were manufactured can judge the different car types. The models change every year. As the year passes, new technology comes and the car is updated with the latest needs of the people. There are two types of cars mainly. One is the expensive ones and the other is the affordable cars. The expensive ones are either the sports cars, luxury cars or the classic cars. The sports cars are usually bought by youngsters as they give a look of joy and freedom while the luxury cars are usually for the high class people who believe in style and elegance. Another type of expensive cars is the archetypal cars. These cars are sometimes more than 70 years old and are the worlds most expensive cars.People who cannot afford luxury cars buy the reasonably affordable cars. They need the car for the basic purpose of transportation or for moving goods. They do not buy these cars to go to big premier shows and be the gossip of the town but for going to work or school or transporting goods from one place to another.

Give a suitable meaning of the word 'Luxury'.

Choose the correct option to fill in the blank.
There was ________ all over the building after the fire broke out.

Ahas diverted
Bhas been diverted
Cdiverts
Dwere diverting


In my opinion, none of the above options help the sentence above to be grammatically correct.The presence of the verb 'was' in the above sentence does not allow other verbs to fill in the blank. However, all of the options given are verbs, or verbal clauses.Even if 'was' was omitted from the sentence, none of the options seem to make sense. The lack of a definite subject (here, 'There' is the subject) in the sentence excludes option A, B, C, D, as 'there', as a subject, is simply used to "describe a situation" rather than "a person performing an action", or "a person on whom an action is being performed". If 'There' was replaced by a subject like 'The firefighters', or 'The people in the building', still none of the options complete the sentence. The singular verbs in option A, B, and C disagree with the plural subjects, and thus they are excluded. Option D remains the only plural verb, but the lack of a definite object excludes this option too. "The firefighters _were__diverting_ all over the building after the fire broke out." doesn't make sense. One might consider assuming a singular subject, but that doesn't make any literary sense. It is illogical to consider that only one person is in the building, or only one firefighter is there to save the people in the building. Therefore, an object must be inserted in the sentence. In my opinion, 'the people' acts as a suitable object, although there may be many other suitable objects. Thus, the question can become: "The firefighters ______ the people all over the building after the fire broke out.". If the question was framed like this, option D is obviously the most suitable answer.To make the question more sensible, replacing the adverb like 'all over the building' with an adverb like 'outside the building' is a good idea. "The firefighters ______ the people outside the building after the fire broke out." sounds more acceptable (in my opinion).In conclusion, I opine that this question (in it's original form) is inaccurate, and that none of the options fulfill the sentence suitably. I hope that this question will be rectified, or removed. If there is a fault in my explanation, I would very much like to hear about it.Thank you.
