Verbal Ability - Question Of The Day

A sentence is given below with a part of it printed in bold type. That part may contain a grammatical error. Each sentence is followed by phrases (1), (2), (3) and (4). Find out which phrase should replace the phrase given in bold to correct the error, if there is any, and to make the sentence grammatically meaningful and correct. If the sentence is correct as it is and no correction is required, mark (5) as the answer.

Homer Simpson is a fictional main characteristic in the animated television series "The Simpsons".


1) fiction main character
2) fictional main character
3) fictional mainly character
4) fictional main characters
5) No correction required


Option 1 is incorrect because 'fiction' is incorrectly used.
Option 3 is incorrect as 'mainly' is incorrectly used.
Option 4 is incorrect as 'characters' is incorrectly used as it should be singular.
Option 5 is incorrect as the usage in the main sentence incorrectly uses the word, 'characteristic'.

Hence, the correct answer is option 2.
