II - A – results are delivered not captured. Deliver and capture are opposites. Deliver means to give and capture means to withhold/keep. III. B – The subject in the sentence is ‘Positions of authority’, thus based on subject-verb agreement, the ‘Positions’ is plural, thus plural verb ‘have’ will be used.
