What is "OMISSION" ?

  • 0

Omission is a process in which certain words, in a given paragraph, are omitted. Such omissions make the sentence/s grammatically incorrect. In questions on omission, a student is supposed to examine each line and find the missing word/link between two words (if any). These questions test a students understanding and ability to use the language correctly.

GRAMMAR CONCEPTS REQUIRED

Before answering such questions, a student should be thorough with certain rules and concepts in grammar. Some of the important ones are indicated below:

1. A verb should agree with its subject in terms of number and person.

2. Tense consistency has to be maintained.

3. A pronoun must be consistent with its antecedent.

4. Conjunctions should be used correctly.

5. The rules for using articles have to be followed.

6. Prepositions should be used in a suitable manner.

7. Voice (active or passive) consistency must be maintained.

8. Determiners should be used appropriately.

9. The flow of sentences in terms of narration (direct/indirect speech) should be followed.

STEPS TO BE FOLLOWED

To answer questions based on omission, a student may follow the steps given below:

1. Read the entire paragraph in one go. Find the context or the main idea of the given paragraph or sentences.

2. Analyse the part of sentence given in one line. Study it in the context of what follows and/or what precedes it.

3. Identify the missing word/link between two words. Consider subject-verb agreement or pronoun-antecedent consistency or use of article, preposition, voice, tenses etc.

4. Write the missing word along with the words that come before and after it in the given blank, as per the requirement of the question.

5. Repeat the steps from point 2 through 4 till all the missing words have been noted down.

NOTE:It is not mandatory to find the omitted words in a sequential order. You may choose to find the easiest one first and then move on to the more difficult ones. This may, in fact, make the difficult ones easier to predict.
