22. A man becomes wiser with age and experience.

  • Option : D
  • Explanation : Choice (a) and (b) mean that the prerequisite for wisdom is age and experience, which is incorrect. Just by growing old and working for a long period, a person cannot improve his wisdom. 'The wiser' is used only when we compare wisdom with some other quality. Choice (d) is the correct restatement of the given one. Hence correct choice is (d).
