I just appeared for GATE 2013. In its aptitude section, I was totally confused. The question was to identify the grammatically incorrect sentence. The sentences were:
- He is of Asian origin.
- They belonged to Africa.
- She is an European.
- They migrated from India to Australia.
According to me (3) and (4) are correct but I am confused whether 1st is incorrect or 2nd. Please clarify if we can use "belonged to" in this regard (belong to a country). Moreover, the first sentence is even more doubtful, as we generally say
He is Asian.
It already means that his origin is Asia.
So please, tell me which is the incorrect sentence and why?
