Select the underlined word or phrase that needs to be changed to make the sentence correct. Some sentences contain no error at all.
Susan’s term paper was definitely the most thorough researched work she had done all year, but she was still worried that the teacher wouldn’t like it. No error
Answer with explanationAnswer: Option B
The error here is “most thorough.” Since “thorough” is followed by a verb it is an adverb, and thus must become “thoroughly.” The correct way to write this would be “the most thoroughly researched.” Adding the “-ly” to an adjective usually makes it an adverb, and every time and adjective is describing another adjective or a verb it must become an adverb. The “it” at the end is the correct pronoun, as “it” is referring to the paper.
