Question

Which of the phrases given below the sentence should replace the word/phrase given in underline in the sentence to make it grammatically correct? If the sentence is correct as it is given and no correction is required, select 'No correction required' as the answer.
House flies that hatch in summer live only about three weeks, but they who hatch during winter live longer than 6 months.
  1. than those
  2. but those who
  3. than they who
  4. but those that
  5. No correction required


Solution

The correct option is D but those that
'But' is suitable usage but 'who' should not be used with houseflies. So, option (d) is only suitable choice here.
E.g. I like dragonflies, but I don't like ordinary ones.
