Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Zeg dat het natuurschoon daar prachtig is.

    • A.

      The scenery is beautiful out there.

      The nature is great out there.

    • C.

      The nature is beautiful out there.

    • D.

      The scenery is great out there.

    Correct Answer
    A. The scenery is beautiful out there.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The scenery is beautiful out there." This is because the word "scenery" refers to the natural beauty of a place, such as landscapes, mountains, or bodies of water. The word "beautiful" accurately describes the attractiveness and aesthetic appeal of the natural surroundings.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Vraag hoe lang de overtocht duurt.

    • A.

      How long does the crossing takes?

    • B.

      How long does the crossing take?

    • C.

      How long is the crossing taking?

    • D.

      How long takes the crossing?

    Correct Answer
    B. How long does the crossing take?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "How long does the crossing take?" This is because the verb "take" is used in the correct form for the question. The other options either use the incorrect verb tense ("takes" and "taking") or use the incorrect word order ("How long takes the crossing?").

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Zeg dat dit de eerste keer is dat je hier bent.

    • A.

      This is the first time I've been.

    • B.

      This is the first time I came here.

    • C.

      This is the first time I was here.

    • D.

      This is the first time I have been here.

    • E.

      This is the first time we have been here.

    Correct Answer
    D. This is the first time I have been here.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "This is the first time I have been here." This is because the phrase "have been" is used to indicate an action that started in the past and is still ongoing in the present. In this context, it implies that the speaker is currently at the location for the first time. The other options ("I've been," "I came," "I was," "we have been") do not convey the same sense of ongoing action in the present.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Vraag of ze het minimumloon betalen.

    • A.

      Do they pay a minimum wage?

    • B.

      Do they pay maximum wages?

    • C.

      Do they pay minimum wages?

    • D.

      Do they pay the minimum wages?

    Correct Answer
    C. Do they pay minimum wages?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Do they pay minimum wages?" because the question is asking if the company pays the minimum wage, which is a standard wage set by law. The use of the plural form "wages" indicates that the question is asking about the overall payment to employees, rather than a specific wage rate.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Zeg dat je graag een baan hebt waarbij je kunt zitten.  

    • A.

      I'd like a sitting job.

    • B.

      I'd like a nice job.

    • C.

      I'd like to have a sitting job.

    • D.

      I'd like a great job.

    • E.

      I'd like to sit in my job.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. I'd like a sitting job.
    C. I'd like to have a sitting job.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I'd like a sitting job." and "I'd like to have a sitting job." These answers specifically mention wanting a job where one can sit, which aligns with the given statement of wanting a job where one can sit. The other options do not mention sitting or having a sitting job.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Zeg dat je een hekel hebt aan kranten bezorgen om vijf uur 's ochtends.

    • A.

      I hate bringing newspapers at five in the morning.

    • B.

      I hate taking newspapers at five in the morning.

    • C.

      I hate delivering newspapers at five in the morning.

    • D.

      I hate giving newspapers at five in the morning.

    Correct Answer
    C. I hate delivering newspapers at five in the morning.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I hate delivering newspapers at five in the morning" because it accurately translates the Dutch sentence "Zeg dat je een hekel hebt aan kranten bezorgen om vijf uur 's ochtends." The word "delivering" accurately conveys the action of bringing newspapers to people's homes, which is the job of a newspaper delivery person. The other options ("taking," "bringing," and "giving") do not accurately capture the action of delivering newspapers.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Vraag hoe het vandaag gaat.

    • A.

      Good morning. How are you feeling today?

    • B.

      Good morning. How are you today?

    • C.

      Good morning. How are you?

    • D.

      Good morning. How is life?

    • E.

      Good morning. How do you do?

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Good morning. How are you today?
    C. Good morning. How are you?
    E. Good morning. How do you do?
    Explanation
    The correct answer options for this question are: "Good morning. How are you today?", "Good morning. How are you?", and "Good morning. How do you do?". These options are all appropriate responses to the question "Vraag hoe het vandaag gaat," which translates to "Ask how you are today." Each of these answers conveys a polite greeting and an inquiry about the person's well-being.

    Rate this question:

      Can't refuse.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Can't complain.
    B. Cannot complain.
    C. I can't complain.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Can't complain", "Cannot complain", and "I can't complain". These phrases are all idiomatic expressions used to indicate that the person is satisfied with their current situation and has no complaints.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Zeg: Ik zie je nog wel.

    • A.

      I may see you.

    • B.

      I can see you.

    • C.

      I am going to see you.

    • D.

      I'll see you.

    Correct Answer
    D. I'll see you.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I'll see you." This is because the Dutch phrase "Ik zie je nog wel" is a casual way of saying goodbye, indicating that the speaker expects to see the person again in the future. The phrase "I'll see you" is the most accurate translation of this meaning. The other options ("I may see you," "I can see you," "I am going to see you") do not convey the same sense of expectation or future meeting.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Zeg: Ik zal je aan al mijn vrienden voorstellen.

    • A.

      I'll show you to all my friends.

    • B.

      I'll see you and all my friends.

    • C.

      I'll introduce you to all my friends.

    • D.

      I'll introduce all my friends to you.

    Correct Answer
    C. I'll introduce you to all my friends.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I'll introduce you to all my friends." This is the most accurate translation of the given Dutch sentence. It conveys the meaning that the speaker will make introductions between the person they are speaking to and their friends.
