    Correct Answer
    D. Hindi nakakibo, nawalan ng lakas na magsalita
    Explanation
    The given correct answer for this question is "hindi nakakibo, nawalan ng lakas na magsalita" which translates to "unable to move, lost the ability to speak". This answer is supported by the statement "Bakit hindi ka makasagot diyan?" which means "Why can't you answer that?" and the subsequent descriptions of feeling like being bitten by a snake, turning pale, having an itchy throat, and a snake entering the house. These symptoms suggest a severe reaction to a snake bite, which can cause paralysis and loss of speech.

    B. Balitang walang katotohanan
    Explanation
    The speaker mentions that they have been hearing "Puro balitang kutsero" from their neighbor, which implies that the neighbor is constantly spreading gossip or unreliable information. Therefore, the speaker states that they no longer want to believe in what the neighbor says. The phrase "balitang walang katotohanan" translates to "news without truth" or "unreliable news," which aligns with the context provided in the statement.

    • D.

      Nagkabati

    Correct Answer
    A. Matinding labanan o awayan sa pagitan ng dalawa o higit pang mga tao
    Explanation
    The given sentence "Naghalo ang balat sa tinalupan nang malaman niya ang katotohanan" suggests that there was a fierce conflict or confrontation between two or more people when the person learned the truth. The phrase "Naghalo ang balat sa tinalupan" implies that there was a mixing or merging of skins, which metaphorically represents a heated battle or disagreement. Therefore, the correct answer "matinding labanan o awayan sa pagitan ng dalawa o higit pang mga tao" accurately describes the situation depicted in the sentence.

      Laging kasapi sa lipunan

    Correct Answer
    B. Galante;laging handang gumasta
    Explanation
    Tompet is described as "bulang-gugo" which means he is a person who tries to appear rich or wealthy even though he is not. The correct answer, "galante; laging handang gumasta," supports this description as it means Tompet is generous and always ready to spend money. This suggests that Tompet tries to impress others by being lavish with his spending, even though he comes from a wealthy family.

    Correct Answer
    C. Anak na hindi paluhain, ina ang patatangisin
    Explanation
    The correct answer "anak na hindi paluhain, ina ang patatangisin" means that a child who is not disciplined or corrected by their parents will eventually be disciplined or corrected by others, specifically their mother. In this situation, the child who is "laki sa layaw" (unruly) and lacks respect and appreciation for others is compared to a child who is not disciplined by their parents. The proverb implies that if the child's mother does not discipline or correct their behavior, someone else will eventually step in and do so.

    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "Akala ni Kapaho: ang pag-aasawa'y biro; kanin bagang isusubo't iluluwa kung mapaso, Saan mang gubat ay may ahas." This answer is correct because it reflects the sentiment expressed in the statement given at the beginning. The statement talks about someone who is struggling in their married life and wants to separate. The answer suggests that Kapaho, the person being referred to, initially thought that marriage was just a joke, but now realizes the difficulties and challenges it brings. The phrase "kanin bagang isusubo't iluluwa kung mapaso" implies that Kapaho wants to end the relationship because it has become too difficult for them. The phrase "Saan mang gubat ay may ahas" further emphasizes the idea that challenges exist in every situation, including marriage.

    Explanation
    The phrase "Tulak ng bibig, kabig ng dibdib" means that what comes out of the mouth can have a great impact on others. It suggests that words spoken impulsively or without thinking can have serious consequences. This is in line with the given statement that says "Kahit kailan daw ay hindi magugustuhan ang lalaking iyon. Hindi raw niyito tipo." It implies that the man being referred to said something or behaved in a way that made him unlikable or unfavorable to others.

      Pag-iisang dibdib

    Correct Answer
    C. Mahilig maglubid ng buhangin
    Explanation
    The phrase "mahilig maglubid ng buhangin" is the correct answer because it means "likes to sift sand." This phrase is used figuratively to describe someone who is dishonest or deceitful, hence the statement "Huwag mong paniwalaan ang taong sinungaling" (Do not believe a lying person). The other options do not convey the same meaning and are unrelated to the given statement.

    Correct Answer
    D. Itaga mo sa bato
    Explanation

In this context, the speaker is emphasizing the seriousness and certainty of their statement. They are telling the person that they will never lend them money again, and they want them to remember it firmly. By saying "itaga mo sa bato," they are emphasizing that this decision is final and unchanging, just like an inscription on stone.

    Correct Answer
    A. Nagkagalit
    Explanation
    The phrase "Kung hindi mo na maibibigay ang gusto ko, mabuti pang magsaulian na lang tayo ng kandila" suggests a disagreement or conflict between two individuals. The expression "nagkagalit" best fits this scenario as it translates to "had a fight" or "got angry with each other." It implies that the individuals involved in the conversation had a disagreement or argument due to one person's inability to fulfill the other person's desires or expectations.

    Correct Answer
    A. Di-pangmatagalan
    Explanation
    The given sentence states that they were not able to finish the project because they were "ningas-cogon." "Ningas-cogon" is a Filipino term that refers to someone who starts something with great enthusiasm but quickly loses interest or gives up. Therefore, the correct answer "di-pangmatagalan" meaning "not long-lasting" aligns with the given context, indicating that they were not able to complete the project due to their lack of perseverance or long-term commitment.
