Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Correction:

The sentence given has three errors:

1. ‘Panorama’ is singular. So, the verb associated with this is ‘provides’, not ‘provide’.

2. The preposition ‘of’ connects words and is used to show possession or the relationship between two things. The right word in the given context is ‘off’, the equivalent of ‘away’.

3. The adverb ‘once’ should be placed immediately before the word or phrase it modifies. ‘Called …. once’ could mean it was called so one time (instead of at one time). The correct usage is ‘was once called…’.

The question is " Choose the grammatically correct option "

Hence, the answer is option D

Choice D is the correct answer.
