MCQ

From the set of sentences given below in question, choose the sentence that is grammatically correct.

Options

  • Customs officer’s do not allow passenger to carry banned items into or out of the country.

  • Customs officers does not allow passengers to carry banned items into or out of country.

  • Customs officers do not allows passengers to carry banned items into or out of country.

  • Customs officers do not allow passengers to carry banned items into or out of the country.

Solution

  1. Customs officer’s do not allow passenger to carry banned items into or out of the country. - The sentence is grammatically incorrect. Possession occurs when one noun possesses another. This means two nouns appear together. The first noun shows ownership of the second noun. Thus, the use of “officer’s” makes no sense in the context of the sentence.
  2. Customs officers does not allow passengers to carry banned items into or out of country. - “Customs officers” is a plural subject which needs a plural verb. “Does not” is a singular verb; instead, it should be replaced by “do not” to make the sentence grammatically correct.
  3. Customs officers do not allows passengers to carry banned items into or out of country. -  The verb “allows” is incorrectly used with the helping verb “do not.” “Do” is a plural helping verb which needs a plural main verb. Also, the definite article “the” is missing before “country.” Thus, this sentence is also grammatically incorrect.

Therefore, 'Customs officers do not allow passengers to carry banned items into or out of the country.' is the correct option.
