Hi,

Can you perhaps tell us what you think the correct answers are, before we look at the others?

Best wishes, Clive

16: is known as (passive structure; active form: We know Boston as the Hub...)

17. storing, erasing and retrieving (These are parallel and should be in the same form.)

18. Professor Andom Iyassou ("Professor" is a title. If Andom Iyassou is one person, "professor" must be singular.)

19. one mile high (height is a noun; high is an adjective)

20. a symbol (tree is singular and a is singular, so symbol should be singular)

21. as efficient as (the conventional structure for a comparison. "so efficient as" could be used as follows: The software is not so efficient as to make the previous version obsolete.)

22. I suspect you made a mistake in copying this item. I would guess (C) "for a great deal of their content on the majority of their pages."

23. very much alike. (alike is not a noun; only nouns can be preceded by the.)

24. in seconds (we use in with expressions of time: in a few days, in a million years, in about an hour.)

25. Boggs hit a grand slam (making is used in the first part because it's the object of the preposition after, so it must be in noun [gerund?] form. The main clause is "Wade Boggs hit [past tense] a grand slam for the Red Sox.")

I don't have time to do more; perhaps someone else will finish...

26. Gaseous ( but I didn't know the reason)
27.Make ( I think it should use Making )
28.That
29.Hearing
30.Compose
31. Its
32.Annual( I think it should use Annualy )
33.At Boston
34.Locate ( It should use " Located " because passive)
35.About ( I think it should use in)
36.Computer(maybe it should use Computerization)
37.Value
38.Before the game
39.Years ago
40.Eat(It should use "To eat")

Can Anyone rechecked again and explain the reason for me )

Regards

B.A
Buddhist-Accountant26. Gaseous ( but I didn't know the reason)
"Solid, liquid, and gas" are all nouns (and thus, parallel structures). "Gaseous" is an adjective.
Buddhist-Accountant27.Make ( I think it should use Making )
This looks like a Britishism to me, so I'm not sure. I think it could be either "making" or "to make".
Buddhist-Accountant28.That
Hurricane Michael that devastated Cape Cod for the last two days has moved out to sea.
Buddhist-Accountant29.Hearing
AGB worked to aid and improve (equivalent to "to aid and to improve"). Hearing here is a noun meaning "auditory sense".
Buddhist-Accountant30.Compose
Yes. It should be composed.
Buddhist-Accountant31. Its
Yes. the possessive refers to Ester Forbes. Even if you don't know this is a woman (and thus, her is correct), prize winners are people, so its can't be correct.
Buddhist-Accountant32.Annual( I think it should use Annualy )
Exactly!
Buddhist-Accountant33.At Boston
Yes. It should be "in Boston"
Buddhist-Accountant34.Locate ( It should use " Located " because passive)
You got it.
Buddhist-Accountant35.About ( I think it should use in)
Partial credit. "...closely related to"
Buddhist-Accountant36.Computer(maybe it should use Computerization)
Partial credit again! "Computer use", "Computing", etc.
Buddhist-Accountant37.Value
Yes! "rare and valuable" are both adjectives and parallel.
Buddhist-Accountant38.Before the game
Yes. Redundant because of "prior to the game" at the end.
Buddhist-Accountant39.Years ago
Yes. "in recent years".
Buddhist-Accountant40.Eat(It should use "To eat")
Right again.
