B. (3) A set of two double storeyed shops in this market is available on rent.

( In this sentence,Subject 'a set' is singular. So singular verb 'is' will be used.)



C. (4) The teacher advised his pupils that  they should prefer health to wealth and character to health.

( Prefer is followed by 'to' and not 'than'.)

D. (4) My all advice to my son to shun bad company had no effect on him.

( Noun effect is correct word to be used here)



E. (2) My wife asked me  whether I  was going to my office on that day.

(This is an interrogative sentence in indirect form so in such sentences 'if' or 'whether' is used.
