However the same pattern rarely continues while you are preparing for a higher level English Language test. As these tests focus on checking your basic concepts of grammar and there are many of us who are not having a firmly established theories of concepts in English Grammar. Cracking the language test seems easy but it is equally a cumbersome task.

(SUBJECT-VERB AGREEMENT & VERB TENSES)
The English section comprises of long sentences in which the main subject and the verb are separated by variety of words or clauses. If you decipher the subject of each sentence and make sure the verb matches it, you can excel in this grammar rule. In addition, these exams test your knowledge of past, present, future, past-perfect, present perfect, and future perfect tenses.
The most important aspect of English Grammar is Punctuation: commas, apostrophes, colons, semicolons, dashes, periods, question marks, and exclamation points, their usage is analyzed in these tests.
(ADJECTIVES/ADVERBS & MODIFYING PHRASES)
The definition of Modifiers is the words and phrases that describe nouns. Adverbs can only modify verbs, while adjectives modify nouns. Be vigilant towards suspicious adverb-noun and adjective-verb pairings. Also, be aware that many sentences will begin with a modifying phrase and a comma. The categories in which these modifiers are divided is also an important piece of information that you must possess.
4. WORD CHOICE:
(TRANSITIONS & DICTION)

In addition, the tests may try to trick you by using words that sounds similar to the intended words, but does not make sense in context (for example, replacing “could have” with “could of”). It’s therefore, important not to be in hurry while attempting these tests. You must revise all your Grammar rules beforehand.
