Both Questions A, In second question i was confused between A & D. Can someone explain why not D?


Vivek,the word used "whereas"is inappropriate here because "whereas" brings contrast in opposite sense

Eg: Rene likes vanilla ice-cream whereas Ron likes strawberry syrup.

In the given question the mentioned causes are referred as the main cause and there is no contrast required because we are not refuting the given causes or opposing it.

Hope it helps !

1- E

Police requires a plural verb

2- A

I think that it's a unfair question, as it requires the reader to know that hypertension = high blood pressure.

agree to an extent with q2 issue of hypertension and high blood pressure but the word "is" immediately after the underlined part pretty much gives the idea that both are same
