i did not understand why Every product option (Option A) is not correct. It means Every product use similar recycled papers. How is Every and All product making a difference. Please help

here the verb-use is in plural form,
thus,"all" would be prefer
Also," "every" takes a singular verb.

Hope this helps :) :)

I think this is a high-quality question and the explanation isn't clear enough, please elaborate. The questions great.
Though some are a bit confusing. e.g # 28.
.....as when should one know when to use 'all' and not 'each' or 'every'. in that context.

Each and Every both are singular subjects and hence should be followed by uses and not use. Hope this helps. :)

Each Product : Singular Noun will use singular verb "uses"
Every Product : Singular Noun will use singular verb "uses"
All Products : Plural Noun will use plural verb "use"

When EACH and EVERY are the subjects of the the sentence i.e. they come before the noun, then they will take singular verbs.

But when Each and Every come after the main subject, verb will agree with the subject.

The prompt at the top of the question says that we have to choose the correct idiom, even if the whole sentence is grammatically incorrect. Why are we then pointing out grammatical errors in the wrong answers? Idiomatically, both "Every" and "All" are correctly placed
