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

Replace 'sweetly' with 'sweet'.

After the words - taste, feel, seem, appear, look, smell, remain, adjective should be used, not adverb.

The correct sentence should be: She took tea and said that it tasted sweet.

Few examples are:

(i) Honey tastes sweet. (not sweetly)
(ii) A flower smells sweet. (not sweetly)
(iii) She looks beautiful. (not beautifully)
