    (A) The meeting adjourned abruptly/(B) by the CEO after/(C) about three hours of deliberation./(D) No error

    Answer: Incorrect verb usage, Passive Voice
    Note: Some verbs can be either action verbs or state verbs, e.g. measure, weigh, fit, cost. They can be passive only when they are action verbs.
    Action & active: The decorator measured the wall.
    Action & passive: The wall was measured by the decorator.
    State: The wall measured three metres. but NOT Three metres was measured by the wall.
    Active voice is used when the agent or doer (subject) of the action is made prominent.
    The Passive voice is used when the agent is unknown, or when we do not give preference to name him; also when the person or thing acted upon is to be made prominent.
    To find the error, play with question words.
    Example: The meeting was adjourned by whom?
    The meeting was adjourned by the CEO.
    Hence, the error lies in (A).
