  • 5. 

    Good writers know what they are going to say before they start writing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that good writers have a clear plan or idea of what they want to write before they begin. However, this is not always the case. Some writers may prefer to explore their thoughts and ideas as they write, allowing their writing to evolve naturally. Others may find that their ideas become clearer as they write. Therefore, it is not necessary for good writers to always know what they are going to say before they start writing.

    Good writers get it right the first time.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Good writers do not always get it right the first time. Writing is a process that involves drafting, revising, and editing. Even skilled writers often need to go through multiple drafts before producing a final polished piece of writing. The first draft is usually just a starting point, and it is through revision and editing that writers refine their work and make it better. Therefore, it is not true that good writers always get it right the first time.

    • A.

      Active Voice

    • B.

      Passive Voice

    Correct Answer

    The sentence "Phillip lost a wallet" is in the active voice because the subject (Phillip) is performing the action (lost) on the object (a wallet).
