Explanation

Explanation 1: We have been given the following four suggested corrections in the options:
1. “publish” in place of “report”- Does not fit in contextually in the sentence and grammatically we don’t need a verb here.
2. “conflict” in place of “compounding”- fits in contextually in the sentence. The word should have been similar to ‘nepotism’ meaning ‘practice of favoritism based on kinship’. A similar meaning is carried by the phrase ‘conflict of interest’ which refers to a situation in which a person is in a position to derive personal benefit from actions or decisions made in their official capacity.
3. “sanctioning” in place of “giving” -is contextually more fit in the sentence.
4. “simplification” in place of “filing”- Does not fit in contextually in the sentence.
Hence Option D is the correct answer.

Explanation 2: We have been given the following four suggested corrections in the options:
1. “started” in place of “restricted” – Does not fit in contextually in the sentence. 
2. “in” in place of “across”- Does not fit in contextually in the sentence.
3. “and” in place of “to” -fits in contextually in the sentence. ‘Between’ is always followed by ‘and’. Another construction for a time frame is ‘from..to’
4. “ensure” in place of “tackle” – Does not fit in contextually in the sentence
Hence Option C is the correct answer.

Explanation 3: We have been given the following four suggested corrections in the options:
1. “obtaining” in place of “lending” – Does not fit in contextually in the sentence. 
2. “entrusted” in place of “questioned”- Does not fit in contextually in the sentence.
3. “is” in place of “was” – Does not fit in contextually in the sentence as in the latter part ‘were’ is used.
4. “asking” in place of “asked” – is grammatically more fit in the sentence in order to keep the sentence structure parallel. ‘Asking’ aligns with ‘doing’ both verbs being in continuous form.
Hence Option D is the correct answer.

Explanation 4: We have been given the following four suggested corrections in the options:
1. “responding” in place of “respond” – Does not fit in contextually in the sentence as to-infinitive is followed by the base form of the verb.
2. “issued” in place of “raised”- fits in contextually in the sentence. Notice is a warning or intimation of something and to issue something is the act of circulating, distributing, or publishing by a business, government, or organization.
3. “included” in place of “including” – Does not fit in contextually in the sentence.
4. “allegation” in place of “allegedly” – Does not fit in contextually in the sentence
Hence Option B is the correct answer.

Explanation 5: We have been given the following four suggested corrections in the options:
1. “signing” in place of “signed” – Does not fit in contextually in the sentence. 
2. “building” in place of “build”- Does not fit in contextually in the sentence.
3. “created” in place of “in” – Does not fit in contextually in the sentence.
4. “from” in place of “in” – Does not fit in contextually in the sentence
Hence Option E is the correct answer.
