Sol. During stands for ‘throughout the course or duration of (a period of time)’. Hence option C is the most appropriate choice.
S4. Ans.(d)
Sol. Rise means to become important, successful, or powerful and Past Participle form of Rise is ‘Rose’. Hence ‘No improvement’ is required.

S6. Ans.(d) 
Sol. ‘It is high time’ phrase takes V2/past form of verb after it. And ‘Burst’ is the verb that remains same in Present and Past form. Hence No Improvement is required.

Sol. ‘Perfect/ Perfect Continuous Tense’ +………….’For + Period of Time’. 
Hence option B is the correct choice.
S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. The formally accepted method to start a sentence is ‘In my opinion’. And ‘I believe’ is correct to use as a subsequent part of ‘In my opinion’. Hence option A is the correct choice.

Sol. ‘Though…….yet’ is the correct Conjunction pair.
Hence option C is the correct choice.
S10. Ans. (b)
Sol. When a change is brought into existence, it is ‘effected’. ‘Affect’ is related to cause whereas ‘inject’ means to infuse internally. ‘Inflict’ is generally used with gain or pleasure. Thus here the word effect suits aptly to the situation.
