a. 1
b. 2
c. 3
d. 4
e. 5

Replace 'much' with 'many'.

'Much' expresses 'quantity' i.e. it is purely quantitative adjective and uncountable noun is used after 'much'. e.g much milk, how much money etc.

'Many' expresses 'number' e.g. Many boys, many fruits

The correct sentence should be: In spite of facing many problems he did not falter from his path.

Many boys are present today.

There is not much water in the jug.
This survey gives us much knowledge of the public opinion.

Some other quantitative adjectives are:
Little, Whole, A Lot Of, Lots Of, A Great Deal Of, Plenty Of, Some, Enough
Note: If in any sentence, both countable and uncountable nouns are used, adjectives should be used accordingly.

For e.g. Has he bought many milk and much apples?

The correct sentence should be: Has he bought much milk and many apples?
