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

ANSWER: 1
 
Replace 'whole the' with 'the whole'.

'Whole' is a quantitative adjective and the correct form is 'the whole'.

The correct sentence should be: The whole chapter of the book is full of printing errors.

'The whole' is used before nouns.

'All' shows total of many things together. 'All' is numeral as well as quantitative adjective.

For e.g.
I will die as all men are mortal.
All that glitters is not gold.
The whole of India mourned the death of Jayalalithaa.
