Q. The recent incidents of corruption (1) / amply illustrate about (2) / the characters of (3) / our officers. (4) / No Error (5)- Published on 31 Jan 17
Use of 'about' is superfluous. 'Illustrate/ demonstrate/ describe', are immediately followed by 'object'.
For e.g. describe + 'about' + 'object' is wrong.
The correct sentence should be: The recent incidents of corruption amply illustrate the characters of our officers.
e.g. He demonstrates it.
He described it.
