Half gallon

• C.

B. Half gallon

The correct answer is "half gallon" because the phrase "pick up a ___ of milk" suggests that we need to choose a unit of measurement for the milk. Out of the given options, a "half gallon" is the most appropriate measurement for purchasing milk from a store.

• A.

Dozen

• B.

Tube

• C.

Stick

• D.

Can

C. Stick
Explanation
The correct answer is "stick" because when a recipe calls for a measurement of butter, it is commonly referred to as a "stick" of butter. This is a standard unit of measurement for butter in recipes, typically equivalent to 1/2 cup or 113 grams.

Rate this question:

### My cat eats a ___ of tuna every day.

• A.

Can

• B.

Loaf

• C.

Bottle

• D.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### I like to drink a ___ of mineral water after I exercise.

• A.

Pound

• B.

Stick

• C.

Teaspoon

• D.

Bottle

D. Bottle
Explanation
The word "bottle" is the correct answer because it is the most suitable unit of measurement for drinking mineral water. A "pound" is a unit of weight, a "stick" is a solid object, and a "teaspoon" is a unit of volume typically used for smaller quantities. However, a "bottle" is a container specifically designed for holding and consuming liquids, making it the appropriate choice in this context.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### I want to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. But the ___ of peanut butter is empty.

• A.

Pack

• B.

Jar

• C.

• D.

Box

B. Jar
Explanation
The correct answer is "jar" because it is the container typically used to store peanut butter. A jar is a cylindrical glass or plastic container with a lid, designed to hold various types of food items, including spreads like peanut butter. In this context, the sentence suggests that the jar, which is used to store peanut butter, is empty, indicating that there is no peanut butter left to make the sandwich.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### I need three ___ of yogurt from the dairy section.

• A.

Tubes

• B.

Pounds

• C.

Containers

• D.

Dozens

C. Containers
Explanation
The word "containers" is the correct answer because it is the most appropriate term to describe the packaging or receptacles in which yogurt is typically sold. "Tubes" may refer to a different type of packaging, such as for toothpaste or cosmetics. "Pounds" is a unit of weight and not a suitable term for yogurt packaging. "Dozens" is a unit of quantity and does not accurately describe yogurt packaging either. Therefore, "containers" is the most fitting option.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### If you want coffee with breakfast, you should buy a ___ of coffee tonight.

• A.

Gallon

• B.

Pack

• C.

Cup

• D.

Quart

B. Pack
Explanation
If you want coffee with breakfast, buying a pack of coffee tonight would be the most suitable option. A pack of coffee typically contains multiple servings or portions, making it convenient for daily consumption. A gallon of coffee would be excessive for a single breakfast, while a cup would not be enough for multiple servings. A quart is also a larger quantity than necessary for a single breakfast. Therefore, buying a pack of coffee ensures an adequate supply for multiple mornings.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### I would like a large, green ___ of lettuce for tonight's salad.

• A.

• B.

Jar

• C.

Can

• D.

Half a cup

Explanation
The word "head" is the correct answer because it is commonly used to refer to a whole lettuce plant that is harvested for culinary purposes. In this context, the speaker is requesting a large, green "head" of lettuce, indicating that they want a whole lettuce plant for tonight's salad. The other options, such as jar, can, and half a cup, do not make sense in the given sentence and are not commonly used to refer to lettuce.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### Would you like a ___ of chocolate or vanilla ice cream?

• A.

Half a dozen

• B.

Pint

• C.

Bag

• D.

Can

B. Pint
Explanation
The correct answer is "pint" because when asking about a choice of ice cream, "pint" refers to a specific quantity or size of ice cream container. It is commonly used to measure and serve ice cream, and is larger than a single serving but smaller than a quart. Therefore, the question is asking whether the person would like a pint of chocolate or vanilla ice cream.

• A.

Half a pound

• B.

A box

D. A loaf
Explanation
In this context, the most appropriate item to pick up at the bakery is a loaf of whole wheat bread. A loaf refers to a single unit of bread that is typically baked in a specific shape and size. Therefore, it makes sense to choose "a loaf" as the correct answer for this question.

The word "sack" is the correct answer because it is a unit of measurement commonly used for rice. A sack typically refers to a large bag or container that holds a significant amount of rice, which would be necessary to make the special chicken and rice dish. The other options, gallon, loaf, and teaspoon, are not appropriate measurements for rice in this context.

• A.

Teaspoon

• B.

Loaf

• C.

Six-pack

• D.

Stick

Rate this question:

• 18.

### Go get a ___ of bananas in the produce section at the front of the store.

• A.

• B.

Dozen

• C.

Bunch

• D.

Pint

C. Bunch
Explanation
The word "bunch" is the correct answer because it is commonly used to refer to a group or cluster of bananas. It implies that there are multiple bananas together, which is typically how they are sold in stores. A "head" is not the appropriate term for bananas, as it is more commonly used to refer to a part of the body. A "dozen" refers to a group of twelve, which may not accurately describe the quantity of bananas desired. A "pint" is a unit of measurement for liquids and would not be used to describe a quantity of bananas.

Rate this question:

• 19.

### We need a ___ of orange juice for tomorrow morning.

• A.

Pound

• B.

Quart

• C.

Bag

• D.

Stick

B. Quart
Explanation
The word "quart" is the correct answer because it is a unit of measurement commonly used for liquids. In this context, it suggests that a specific amount of orange juice is needed for tomorrow morning. A pound is a unit of weight, not volume, so it is not appropriate for measuring liquids like orange juice. Similarly, a bag and a stick are not units of measurement and do not make sense in this context.

Rate this question:

• 20.

• A.

Bag

• B.

Half a gallon

• C.

Teaspoon

• D.

Loaf

A. Bag
Explanation
The correct answer is "bag" because when buying chocolate chip cookies, they are typically packaged and sold in bags. This is a common and appropriate unit of measurement for this type of dessert.
