Answers:
1. (3) The sentence should start as, I had been waiting for you.......’
2. (4) It should be “ and who is ...” In the given form, the subject ‘of is’ is missing.
3. (2) Delete had. In a “No sooner...than...”structure, than is followed by a subject followed by past simple tense.
4. (1) For a hundred years indicates that the verb should be in the perfect continuous tense. Hence replace ‘has lived’ by ‘has been living’.
5. (3) Boys is countable. Hence replace ‘less’ by ‘fewer’.
6. (5)
7. (4) It should be “equipped not only with” instead of “not only equipped with”.
8. (3) Here, as we are comparing two methods for a single purpose, the sentence should start as – ‘No other method’.
9. (1) Views should always be followed by ‘on’ instead of ‘for’.
10. (2) Delete ‘I’
