4. (d) Use ‘thorough’ in place of ‘thoroughly’ because ‘thoroughly’ is an adverb whereas ‘thorough’ is an adjective word.
5. (a) Use ‘had’ before ‘he’ because inverted form of verb is used in the sentence starting with ‘no sooner’.
6. (b) Use ‘and’ in place of ‘or’ because ‘and’ is fallowed with the use of ‘both’.

8. (b) Use ‘he had written’ in place of ‘he wrote’ because of direct narration.
9. (d) Use ‘need’ in place of ‘needs’ because the antecedent of which is ‘observations’ and it is given in plural form so verb will be used in plural form.
