Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    I ____ happy

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "am" or "´m" because both options are contractions of the verb "am" in the present tense. They are used to express the first-person singular form of the verb "to be" in a sentence. In this case, the missing word should be the correct form to complete the sentence "I ____ happy." Therefore, both "am" and "´m" are valid options to indicate that the subject "I" is currently experiencing happiness.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is". In this sentence, the subject "he" is being described as sad. The verb "is" is the correct form of the verb "to be" to use with the subject "he". The option "´s" is not a valid form of the verb "to be" and does not fit grammatically in this sentence.

  • 5. 

    We____ thirsty

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are,´re". The word "we" is the subject of the sentence, and when referring to multiple people, the correct form of the verb "to be" is "are". The contraction "´re" is also used as a shortened form of "are" in informal speech. Therefore, both "are" and "´re" are correct choices to complete the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    They____ cold

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are" and "´re" because both forms are used to indicate the plural form of the verb "to be" in English. "Are" is the standard form used for most subjects, while "´re" is a contraction commonly used in informal speech or writing. Both forms can be used to describe a group of people or things that are experiencing the sensation of coldness.

  • 7. 

    You____ sick

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are,´re". In this sentence, the word "you" is the subject, and when referring to the second person singular or plural, we use the verb "are" or its contraction "´re". Therefore, both "are" and "´re" are correct forms to complete the sentence.

    Pepe and Juan____ well

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are, ´re." The word "are" is used to indicate the present tense of the verb "to be" when referring to multiple people or things. The word "´re" is a contraction of "are" and is used in informal speech or writing. In this sentence, "Pepe and Juan" is a plural subject, so the correct forms to use are "are" and "´re."

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    My mother Cecy and My sister____ in Quito

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are". This is because the subject of the sentence is "My mother Cecy and My sister", which is a plural subject. Therefore, the correct verb form to use is "are". The option "´re" is incorrect as it is not a valid verb form in English.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    My boyfriend and I____ in the schooll

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are". This is because the subject of the sentence is "My boyfriend and I", which is a plural noun phrase. In English, plural noun phrases require the verb form "are" to agree with them. The option "´re" is not a valid verb form in English.
