    Complete the second sentence so it means the same as the first, using the word given. Do not change the word given. Use between two and five words.What’s the arrival time of Gemma’s train?     DOES What time ……………………… ? 

    Explanation
    The question is asking for the arrival time of Gemma's train. The given answer correctly rephrases the question by using the word "does" and rearranging the words to form the question "What time does Gemma's train arrive?"

    Rate this question:

  • 4.

  • 5. 

    Paul is working in New York for six months from next January.          WORKING Next March, Paul ……………………… New York. 

    Explanation
    The sentence states that Paul is currently working in New York for six months starting from next January. Therefore, it can be inferred that in March (which is after January), Paul will still be working in New York. The correct answer, "will be working in," indicates that Paul's work in New York will continue into the future.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    I am going to go to university before the end of the year.              GONE  I will ……………………… the end of the year. 

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have gone to university by." This is because the sentence "I am going to go to university before the end of the year" is in the future tense, indicating that the action of going to university will happen at some point in the future. The phrase "have gone to university by" is in the present perfect tense, indicating that the action of going to university will be completed before a specific time in the future, which in this case is "the end of the year."

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The traffic is terrible and I don’t think it’s possible to catch the train now.            MISS  The traffic’s terrible and I think we are ………………………  . 

    Explanation
    The given correct answer "going to miss the train" accurately completes the sentence and conveys the speaker's belief that it is not possible to catch the train due to the terrible traffic. The phrase "going to miss the train" indicates that the speaker believes they will not be able to catch the train because of the current traffic situation.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

     It (1) ……………………… (start) at six o’clock. 

    Explanation
    The sentence is in present tense and the subject "it" is singular, so the correct verb form is "starts."

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

     Great! I (2) ……………………… (finish) my homework by then. 

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "will have finished, 'll have finished". This is because the sentence is in the future perfect tense, indicating an action that will be completed before a certain point in the future. The phrase "will have finished" is used to express this completion, and the contraction "'ll" is a shortened form of "will" that is commonly used in informal speech. Therefore, both options are correct and can be used interchangeably in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    By the time the aliens arrive, the researchers  (3) ……………………… (live) in isolation for six months and it’s all about how they prepare for the visitors. 

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "will have been living" and "'ll have been living". This is because the sentence is in the future perfect tense, indicating an action that will be completed before a certain point in the future. The phrase "by the time the aliens arrive" suggests that the action of living in isolation will be completed before the arrival of the aliens. Therefore, the future perfect tense is used to indicate that the researchers will have been living in isolation for six months before the aliens arrive. The contraction "'ll" is also used to indicate the future perfect tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    She (4) ……………………… (play) a match then.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "will be playing, 'll be playing". This is because the sentence is in the future tense and is referring to an action that will happen in the future. The use of "will be playing" indicates a planned action, while " 'll be playing" is a contraction of "will be playing" and is also used to express future actions. Both options convey the same meaning and are grammatically correct in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    She doesn’t think they (5) ……………………… (win) but she says it’s good experience. 

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "will win, 'll win". In this sentence, the speaker is expressing their belief or prediction about the future. The use of "will win" indicates that the speaker believes that "they" will win, while the contraction "'ll win" is an informal way of expressing the same belief. Both options convey the same meaning and are grammatically correct in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    It is very difficult to imagine what the future  (1) ……………………… be like but some people earn a living by making predictions and I’m seriously considering it as a career. 

    Explanation
    The word "will" is the correct answer because it is used to indicate the future tense in English. In the given sentence, the speaker is talking about what the future will be like and considering a career in making predictions. Therefore, "will" is the appropriate word to use in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    So, what about the next 50 years or so? I’m  (2) ……………………… to make some predictions for the year 2060. 

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "going." In the given sentence, the speaker is talking about making predictions for the year 2060. The word "going" is the correct form of the verb "go" in the present continuous tense, indicating an action that will happen in the future.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    The population of the world will (3) ……………………… increased dramatically and a lot of animals will be extinct. 

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have" because the sentence is referring to a future event, indicating that the population of the world will increase dramatically and result in the extinction of many animals. The verb "have" is the correct form to use in this context to indicate possession or experience of a particular situation or event.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    We’ll all have robots and they will be doing our chores for us. There will be advances in medicine but most people will  (4) ……………………… be able to afford them. 

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "not" because the sentence states that "most people will not be able to afford advances in medicine." This means that despite the advancements in medicine, a majority of people will not have the financial means to access or afford them.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Many of today’s conflicts will have (5) ……………………… going on for years by then and I think society will be divided into the people who ‘have’ money and those who ‘have not’. 

    Explanation
    The word "been" is the correct answer because it completes the verb phrase "will have been" in the sentence. This verb phrase is used to indicate a future action that will have already been completed by a specific time in the future. In this case, it suggests that many of today's conflicts will still be ongoing for years at that future time.
