GRE - Text Completion - Grammatical Construction

Text completion query (more)

During my text completion study prep, I've come across many questions which are either grammatically incorrect and who's answer options are framed in such a way that they seem irrelevant to the question. Below are some examples:

Please help me out!

Hi Simran,

Thank you for pointing out the repetition. I have noted the same and will get it changed. 

Here is the explanation for the second text completion question posted by you:

Unwitting dictatorial film director hardly identify a critical reason for the low levels of serious conflict among film crew members popularly engaged with other different divisions experts, a little of patience for opposition often averts __________.

The sentence is talking about the conflict among crew members which is unwittingly (unintentionally) not identified by the film director who is described as dictatorial (authoritative) here. Your clue to fill this sentence are the words ‘serious conflict’ and ‘opposition’. The sentence says if this opposition is dealt with patiently then the opposition can be averted (prevented). Among the answer choices schism which means a split or division between strongly opposed sections or parties, caused by differences in opinion or belief matches the clue and hence is the right answer choice.
