The correct future form of the verb "finish" to use in this context is "will have finished." This implies that B expects to complete their homework before the specified time in the future. The question also asks for information about the film, indicating that B is shifting the topic of conversation after expressing their expectation about completing their homework.

    The correct future form of the verb in this context is "will have been living". This form is used to indicate an action that will be completed in the future before another specified time or event. In this case, the researchers will have been living in isolation for six months by the time the aliens arrive. This suggests that the researchers have been living in isolation for some time and will continue to do so until the aliens arrive.

    Explanation
    The word "been" completes the sentence grammatically and makes it coherent. It indicates that many of today's conflicts will have been ongoing for years in the future. The sentence suggests that society will be divided into those who have money and those who do not. The use of "been" implies that the conflicts will have continued and persisted over time.

    Explanation
    The word "journey" fits logically in the sentence as it is the only option that can describe the experience of traveling from one place to another. The other options, such as "board," "gate," "landing," "take off," "traffic jam," and "travel," do not make sense in the given context. Therefore, "journey" is the correct answer.

    Explanation
    The email states that the person thought they were going to miss their flight because the car service booked by their host mother was late.

The phrase "right at the other end of the airport" suggests that the person is at a different location within the airport and needs to go to another location to catch their flight. The correct word to complete the sentence is "board," as it means to get on a plane. Therefore, the person needed to board their flight at the other end of the airport.

      High-speed

    • C.

      Rocket

    Correct Answer
    B. High-speed
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "high-speed" because the person wanted to spend a day in Paris on the way to Aix. Taking a high-speed train would allow them to travel quickly and efficiently, giving them more time to explore Paris before continuing their journey. The other options, "supersonic" and "rocket," do not make sense in this context as they are not commonly used modes of transportation for traveling between cities.

    B. Unbelievable
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "unbelievable" because it is the most fitting word to complete the sentence. The sentence states that the person left London and arrived in the center of Paris just two hours later, which is a very short amount of time for such a journey. This rapid travel time would be considered unbelievable or hard to believe.
