Which of the pairs of words / phrases (1), (2), (3) and (4) given below should replace the words/phrases given in bold in the following sentences to make the sentence grammatically meaningful and correct. If the sentence is correct as it is and no correction is required, mark (5) as the answer.

At the hint of the disaster , a hundred thousand people were forced to eradicate their house .

A ways of disaster, evade their homes Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
B way in the disaster, eradicate their houses Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
C height of the disaster, evacuate their homes Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
D depth in the disaster, toggle their house Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
E No correction required Correct Answer Incorrect Answer


Eradicate means to remove. Evacuate means to vacate. When disaster arrives, houses are vacated or evacuated. Also, such a large number of people won’t be made to evacuate the house just at a hint of disaster. The disaster should have either happened or should be confirmed to happen. Thus, height of the disaster is the correct replacement for first phrase.
