    • Speed cameras have been shown to reduce accidents.=It has shown that speed cameras reduce accidents.
      The former sentence is a reduction form of the latter sentence. The word “show” in those sentences means “prove”. Studies has proved that speed cameras reduce accidents.=Speed cameras have been proved/shown to reduce accidents.

    • The 18th question begins with “Ver rarely”, which requires an inverted sentence. An inverted sentence changes the placement of the verb before the subject as if in the question. For example: Never have I been to Paris. = I have never been to Paris.

  1. Hello,
    May I please get the grammatical explanation for question 11. Also, for question 18, I understood that the correct answer had to be an inverted sentence. However, my doubt still lies as to why does it have to be an inverted sentence or when do we know that an inverted sentence needs to be used?

  2. Hello, Puspita!

    For 11th question, you should study “reduction of adverbial clauses” and “reduction of relative clauses“. See the examples below:
    – After we ate/had eaten dinner, we went out for a walk.
    = After eating/ After having eaten dinner, we went out for a walk.
    = Having eaten dinner, we went out for a walk.
    – Because she is married now, she has more responsibilities.
    = Being married now, she has more responsibilities.
    – Because I had sprained my ankle, 1 could hardly walk.
    = Having sprained my ankle, I could hardly walk.
    – Today’s people, who aren’t thinking of the future generations, are cruelly polluting the earth.
    = Today’s people, not thinking of the future generations, are cruelly polluting the earth.
    = Not thinking of the future generations, today’s people are cruelly polluting the earth.
    = Today’s people are cruelly polluting the earth, not thinking of the future generations.

    For 18th question, you should study “inverted sentences“.
    When do we use inversion? Of course, we use inversion in questions. You can read more about this here. But we also sometimes use inversion in other cases, when we are not making a question.

    1: When we use a negative adverb or adverb phrase at the beginning of the sentence.
    2: We can use inversion instead of ‘if’ in conditionals with ‘had’ ‘were’ and ‘should’. This is quite formal:
    3: We can use inversion if we put an adverbial expression of place at the beginning on the sentence. This is also quite formal or literary:
    4: We can use inversion after ‘so + adjective…that’:
