LPAT 文法 Correcting and explaining errors 

LPAT error correction -- test yourself

The following 2o-question quiz is ENTIRELY based on the 20 questions in LPAT 2018 Paper 2 Task 2B (correction of errors/ problems). Look at the sentences, identity the errors or problems and explain them using HKEAA grammar terminology.

I got all 18 of them correct and got level 5. Test yourself and see how many questions you can answer correctly. 

a. Taking a bus is convenience.

The word 'convenience' should be 'convenient'. This is a type of (1)                      error.

b. Things like wash dishes and do the laundry are more easy than they seem.

We should use 'washing' instead of 'wash' because 'like' is a (2)                     in the sentence. Then, the gerunds 'washing dishes' and 'doing the laundry' would become (3)                       structures liked by 'and'. Also, we should use  a (4)                      'easier' with a (5)                       -er, rather than 'more easy' because 'easy' has only (6)                     

c. Students are lack of vocabularies. Also, the contents of their writing are also weak.

One way to correct this is to use 'lacking in', where 'lacking' is a/an (7)                     . Also, we should use 'content' instead of 'contents' because in this case, it is (8)                     .

d. Children should not allow to do housework because it can be dangerous.

The correct way to say it is 'should not be allowed to do' because in a (9)                      construction such as this, the (10)                       verb follows 'should'.

 

e. People are searching for the secret for happiness for thousands of years.

The tense is not correct. The (11)                     tense should be used, because (12)                    .

f.  In order to do my best in an exam, I have to relax myself and reduce my stressful.

The (13)                     pronoun 'myself' should be removed because the verb relax is (14)                      in this case. Also, stressful is not correct because (15)                     .

g. I think that you should not stop your children to do homework. You can educate their to be more careful.

We should replace 'to do' with 'doing' because using -ing form after 'stop' gives the meaning of (16)                     . Also, 'them' should replace the (17)                     determiner 'their' because (18)                    .

h. Doing housework gives a child the opportunity to give back to their parents. On the other hand, there are many children enjoy doing chores.

The connective 'on the other hand' is not correct because (19)                    . Secondly, a (20)                       should be added between 'children' and 'enjoy'.

I got all 18 of them correct and got level 5. How many correct answers can you get?

Answers:

a. Taking a bus is convenience.

The word 'convenience' should be 'convenient'. This is a type of (1) part of speech error.

b. Things like wash dishes and do the laundry are more easy than they seem.

We should use 'washing' instead of 'wash' because 'like' is a (2)preposition in the sentence. Then, the gerunds 'washing dishes' and 'doing the laundry' would become (3) coordinated structures liked by 'and'. Also, we should use  a (4)comparative adjective 'easier' with a (5) suffix  -er, rather than 'more easy' because 'easy' has only (6) two syllables

c. Students are lack of vocabularies. Also, the contents of their writing are also weak.

One way to correct this is to use 'lacking in', where 'lacking' is a/an (7) adjective. Also, we should use 'content' instead of 'contents' because in this case, it is (8) uncountable.

d. Children should allowed to do housework because it can be dangerous.

The correct way to say it is 'should not be allowed to do' because in a (9) passive construction such as this, the (10) auxiliary verb follows 'should'.

e. People are searching for the secret for happiness for thousands of years.

The tense is not correct. The (11)present perfect continuous/progressive tense should be used, because (12)the search started in the past and is continuing at the present time.

f.  In order to do my best in an exam, I have to relax myself and reduce my stressful.

The (13) reflexive pronoun 'myself' should be removed because the verb relax is (14)intransitive in this case. Also, stressful is not correct because (15) after a possessive adjective, such as my, a noun, instead of an adjective should be used.

g. I think that you should not stop your children to do homework. You can educate their to be more careful.

We should replace 'to do' with 'doing' because using -ing form after 'stop' gives the meaning of (16) discontinuing an action that has been ongoing since some time in the past. Also, 'them' should replace the (17) possessive determiner 'their' because (18)a transitive verb is followed by an object, which can be realized by a noun phrase.

h. Doing housework gives a child the opportunity to give back to their parents. On the other hand, there are many children enjoy doing chores.

The connective 'on the other hand' is not correct because (19)'on the other hand' gives the meaning that the upcoming idea has an opposite meaning to the preceding one . Secondly, a (20) relative pronoun "who"  should be added between 'children' and 'enjoy'.

I got all 18 of them correct and got level 5. How many correct answers can you get?
