  • Correct Answer
    Choice (D)

Detailed Solution

There are no errors in the given sentence.

When used to mean 'get rid of', 'dispose' is followed by 'of'. When not followed by 'of', 'dispose' is used in the sense of 'arrange' or 'lean toward'.

'Debris' is singular. The verb that agrees with this is 'was'.

Correct Answer: D
