Verbal Ability - Question Of The Day

Choose the option in which the usage of the word “scene ” is inappropriate.
1) The eruption of A.R. Rahman’s fantastic music onto the world scene took the notable musicians by surprise.
2) Jilted by KK, she created a scene at the party.
3) The actors ran through the final scene again.
4) The movie’s producer is a newcomer out off the Tollywood scene.
5) Since Grandpa still had a hectic work schedule, the Doctors advised him a complete change of scene.


“On the scene” or “onto the scene” reflects on the area of activity (option 1) and the usage is correct.
“Create or make a scene” (option 2) means public display of anger.
In option 3, “scene” is a part of a play or a book or a movie.
In option 5, change of scene denotes shift of place to enable change in surroundings.
In option  4, the correct usage should be ‘a newcomer to the Tollywood scene’.
Hence, the correct answer is option 4.
