    2. ------- is a government employee who is always ready to tell lies for the good of his country. I can't see any correct option here


    I think in this sentence the correct answer is the letter A
    A is a government employee who is always ready to tell lies for the good of his country.

    Re: correct me please!

    I agree that in question 2 there is no correct answer. Perhaps it was not copied/transcribed correctly.

    I'm not a professional teacher, but that was the answer I selected as well. It was the only one that made sense.

    Re: correct me please!

    It could well be that I am being my own obstinate fusspot, but "a" does not signify a person to me. If the option would have been "A." , indicating the first initial of a person, then yes, that could be the answer.
