      Yes

    • C.

      Wednesday is spelled incorrectly

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    The given sentence is grammatically correct. It uses the past tense "was snowing" to describe an action that occurred last Wednesday. The conjunction "and" is missing between "Wednesday" and "school," but this does not affect the grammatical correctness of the sentence. The spelling of "Wednesday" is not relevant to the sentence's grammatical correctness.

      Try

    • D.

      Tried

    Correct Answer
    A. Is trying
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is trying" because the sentence is in the present tense and the action of studying for the ESL test is ongoing. "Is trying" indicates a continuous effort being made by Noriko to study, which is the most appropriate verb form in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 4.

      A

      The

    • C.

      An

    Correct Answer
    B. The
    Explanation
    In this question, the correct answer is "The". The word "reception" is a specific event or gathering, so we use "the" before it to indicate that we are referring to a particular reception. "An" is used before a singular noun when it is not specified or known which one is being referred to, but in this case, we are talking about a specific reception that the person is attending.

      Does the train leave?

    • D.

      Is the train leaving?

    Correct Answer
    C. Does the train leave?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "does the train leave?" because it follows the correct structure of a question in English. In this sentence, the subject "the train" is followed by the helping verb "does" and then the main verb "leave." This structure is used when asking about a specific action or event.

  • 6. 

    Identify the correct sentence type. ​If you work hard, you will succeed in Life.​

    • A.

      Simple

    • B.

      Complex

    • C.

      Compound

    Correct Answer
    B. Complex
    Explanation
    The given sentence is a complex sentence because it consists of an independent clause "If you work hard" and a dependent clause "you will succeed in Life." The dependent clause cannot stand alone as a complete sentence and relies on the independent clause for its meaning. The use of the subordinating conjunction "if" introduces a condition that is necessary for the outcome stated in the dependent clause to occur.

    • B.

      Who

    • C.

      Whose

    Correct Answer
    B. Who
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Who". In the sentence, the pronoun is referring to the subject of the sentence, which is "My friend". Therefore, the appropriate pronoun to use is "Who" as it refers to a person.

    Correct Answer
    C. Fake, Become
    Explanation
    The phrase "Fake it until you make it" means pretending to be confident or successful until you actually become confident or successful. By faking confidence or success, one can gradually develop the necessary skills, mindset, or opportunities to actually achieve their goals. Therefore, the correct answer is "Fake, Become" as it accurately represents the meaning of the phrase.

      You don't need to come unless you want to

    Correct Answer
    C. You don't need to come unless you want to
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "You don't need to come unless you want to." This option accurately conveys the meaning of the original sentence. It implies that coming is not necessary unless there is a desire or willingness to do so. The other options either change the meaning or introduce unnecessary elements into the sentence.
