Question

MCQ

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

Options

  • Where’s Hari? Here is he, right in front of us!

  • Where’s Hari? Here he is, right in front of us!

  • Wheres’ Hari? He is here, right in front of us!

  • Where’s Hari? Is he here, right in front of us!

Solution

  1. Where’s Hari? Here is he, right in front of us! - “Here is he” is grammatically incorrect as the position of “he” is generally reserved for new entities. The fact that we are using a pronoun here means that we must already have been talking about this man in the previous discourse (sentence/conversation). The given sentence is an example of a subject-dependent inversion. In such types of sentences, when you are pointing out an object or a person, we point out by name, not by pronouns.
  2. Wheres’ Hari? He is here, right in front of us! - The contraction of ‘where is’ is where’s, not wheres’.
  3. Where’s Hari? Is he here, right in front of us! - The sentence is an exclamatory sentence, not an interrogative sentence. Thus, the use of “is he here” is grammatically incorrect.

Therefore, Where’s Hari? Here he is, right in front of us! is the correct answer.
