Options

  • I, III

  • I, III, IV

  • I, IV

  • II, III

Solution

I, III, IV are the correct options.
'Yes', the adverb of affirmation, is always followed by a comma. A person's name used for addressing is also followed by a comma. So, II is incorrect. III does not require parenthetical commas for the ex-Mayor's name because 'ex-Mayor' is his title just like 'Doctor Prakash Kumar'. Therefore, both III and IV are correct.
