#14. An Indian ship, laden(A)/with merchandise, (B) /got drowned (C)/in the Pacific. (C)/ No Error. (D)

Ships sink and living objects drown and die. So, got sunk could have been better.

#15. After the humiliating exposure,(A)/Nitin hanged(B)/his head in shame,(C)/ No Error.(D)

The standard rule for the past tense of hang is this: in almost all situations, you should use the word hung.

hung a picture of Noah Webster on the wall.
After school, she hung out in the library.

Use hanged when referring to a person being suspended by a rope around the neck until dead.

The Salem “witches” were not burned; they were hanged.
Justice Wargrave ordered Edward Seton to be hanged by the neck until dead.

It’s not that simple, however: most usage guides reserve hanged for people subjected to death, which means if an inanimate object is suspended from a gallows, the correct term is hung.
