Question 40: Of all the suggestions received, his were more practical and cost-effective.
In the given sentence, the use of the comparative form of the adjective is incorrect. Comparative form is used only when the comparison is between two alternatives. When singling out one in many, the superlative form has to be used.
There is no error in the usage 'his were' as the noun 'suggestions' associated with the pronoun 'his' is clearly understood from the context.
The question is " Choose the grammatically correct option "
Choice C is the correct answer.
