This quiz is an excellent review of English grammar.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Can you hear what he is .......?

    • A.

      Saying

    • B.

      Speaking

    • C.

      Telling

    • D.

      Talking

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Saying
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "saying" because when we want to know if someone can hear what another person is doing with their voice, we use the verb "saying." The other options are not appropriate in this context. "Speaking" refers to the act of using one's voice to communicate, but it does not specifically address the question of whether someone can hear it. "Telling" and "talking" also do not specifically address the act of using one's voice to communicate. Therefore, "saying" is the most suitable option.

      Till

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Yet
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "yet". "Yet" is used in negative sentences or questions to indicate that something has not happened or is not true up to the present time. In this context, it suggests that the person has not come home up to now.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    I ......... TV yesterday evening.

    • A.

      Saw

      Looked

    • C.

      Viewed

    • D.

      Watched

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. Watched
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "watched." In this sentence, the verb "watched" is the most appropriate choice to indicate the action of viewing TV. The other options, such as "saw," "looked," and "viewed," do not specifically convey the act of watching television. Therefore, "watched" is the best fit for completing the sentence.

    Rate this question:

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    She looks .......... a famous film star.

    • A.

      As

      Like

    • C.

      Similar

    • D.

      Same

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Like
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "like" because it is used to compare the appearance or characteristics of two things. In this case, the sentence is comparing the appearance of "she" to that of a famous film star. The word "as" would be incorrect because it is used to compare actions or behavior. "Similar" and "same" would also be incorrect because they do not convey a comparison of appearance. "None of the above" is not the correct answer because "like" is the appropriate word to use in this context.

      Later

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Latest
    Explanation
    This television gives you the latest news. The word "latest" means the most recent or up-to-date. Therefore, this television provides the most current news information.

      Make

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Made
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "made" because it is the past tense form of the verb "make" and it correctly fits into the sentence structure. The sentence is referring to a mistake that was made in last night's test, indicating that the action of making the mistake has already occurred in the past.

      Real

    • D.

      Whole

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. Whole
    Explanation
    The word "whole" is the correct answer because it implies that the speaker wants to hear the complete and entire truth, without any omissions or partial information. The other options, such as "exact," "real," and "all," do not convey the same sense of completeness and entirety as the word "whole."
