A) any another metals    B) another metal    C) any metal    D) no metal    E) No error

But we do not have any verb given next to the word ‘no sooner’ in the sentence. We have a transitive verb ‘enter’ in the sentence, so we use the auxiliary verb ‘did’ to support the past form a verb. 

Ans: A

 Explanation: The first phrase in the sentence has just happened, so it will be in present perfect tense, and we generally use ‘did not’ to talk about a completed action just happened now. So, ‘did not come out’ is the correct usage. 

Ans: A

19. Everyone considered him (A)/ as a brave man (B)/ but he committed suicide (C)/ for a silly issue (D)/ No error (E).

 A) as brave a man   B) a brave man    C) a man brave   D) as man brave   E) No error 

Explanation: The word ‘as’ is used to refer to a function or character that someone or something has got. But in this case, if we add ‘as’ after the object, the object directly referred as the subject, which is not the correct usage. So we vomit ‘as’ from the sentence.
