    • B.

      Are

    • C.

      Am

    Rate this question:

    _________________ old are you?

    • A.

      Who

    • B.

      What

    • C.

      How

    Correct Answer
    C. How
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "How" because it is the appropriate question word to ask someone's age. The other options, "Who" and "What," do not make sense in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Are here __________ messages or e-mails for me?

    • A.

      Some

    • B.

      Any

    • C.

      A

    Correct Answer
    B. Any
    Explanation
    The word "any" is the correct answer because it is used in questions to ask if there are messages or emails for the person. It implies that the person is asking if there are messages or emails, regardless of the quantity. The other options, "some" and "a," do not convey the same meaning as "any" in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Model C13 is _______________ than Model F22.

    • A.

      Cheaper

    • B.

      More cheap

    • C.

      More cheaper

    Correct Answer
    A. Cheaper
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "cheaper" because it is the comparative form of the adjective "cheap." When comparing two models, we use the comparative form to indicate that Model C13 has a lower price than Model F22. "More cheap" and "more cheaper" are incorrect because "cheap" already has a comparative form.

    I ____________ an e-mail now.

      Write

    • B.

      Writing

    • C.

      Am writing

    Correct Answer
    C. Am writing
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "am writing" because the sentence is in the present continuous tense, which is used to describe actions that are happening at the moment of speaking. In this case, the speaker is currently in the process of writing an email.

      Have

    • D.

      Has

    Correct Answer
    B. Are 
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are". This is because the subject "four international airports" is plural, so the verb "are" should also be plural to agree with the subject.

    • B.

      In

      With

    • D.

      From

    Correct Answer
    C. With
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "with". This is because the phrase "deal with" is commonly used to indicate managing or interacting with someone or something. In this case, the sentence suggests that the speaker handles or interacts with customers on a daily basis.

    • D.

      From

    Correct Answer
    C. Up
    Explanation
    The word "come" is used in this sentence to express finding or discovering something. The phrase "come up" means to think of or find an idea or solution. Therefore, the correct answer is "up" because it fits grammatically and conveys the intended meaning of finding or discovering a better idea.
