      Already

    • B.

      Yet

    • C.

      Just

    Correct Answer
    A. Already
    Explanation
    The word "already" is the correct answer because it implies that the action of finishing the homework has already taken place before the present moment. It suggests that the person asking the question is expecting the homework to be completed by now.

      Yet

    • C.

      Just

    Correct Answer
    B. Yet
    Explanation
    The word "yet" is the correct answer because it is used to indicate that something has not happened or been completed up to the present time. In this context, it implies that the person speaking has not finished whatever "it" refers to at the current moment. The other options, "already" and "just," suggest that the task has been completed, which contradicts the meaning of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

      Already, yet

    • C.

      Already, just

    Correct Answer
    B. Already, yet
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "already, yet". The word "already" indicates that the person has already reserved their flight, while the word "yet" suggests that they have not found a good hotel yet. This implies that the person has taken one action (reserving the flight) but has not completed the other action (finding a good hotel).

    Correct Answer
    C. Just
    Explanation
    The word "just" indicates that the action of finishing baking the cookies happened very recently. Therefore, the smell in the kitchen is still present and that is why it smells really nice.

    Explanation
