This question was asked in an exam in India as... In the following questions, some parts of the sentences have errors and some are correct. Find out which part of a sentence has an error. The number of that part is the answer. If a sentence is free from error, your answer is (4) i.e. No error. Le Duc Tho, chosen for the 1973 Peace Prize for his (1)/ act in the Paris Peace Accords, declined, stating (2)/ that there was no actual peace in Vietnam. (3)/ No error (4) As per the official answer key, the error is in "part 2". Would it be "had declined" instead of "declined"? Thanks in advance.
