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

ANSWER: 2
 
Replace ‘from’ with ‘of’

‘Of’ shows cause, source, quality, separation, possession etc.

The correct expression should be ‘expected of her’

The correct sentence should be: She knows very well what is expected of her but she is unable to perform.

Use of By, Off, Of, Till

Till means upto or not earlier than.

By means not later than.

Off shows separation at a near distance, and detached condition.

Of shows cause, source, quality, separation, contents, possession, apposition, point of reference, space in time etc.

Example:

He shall work till 5 a.m.

By this time tomorrow, I’ll have finished the project.

Use of ‘Of’

Mohan died of cancer. (cause)

That pen is made of gold. (source)

He presented me a bottle of wine. (contents)

She was deprived of her purse. (separation)

She came back within an hour of appointed time. (space in time)

My house is off the road. (separated from the main road by a short distance)
