    Correct Answer
    F. 1+4
    Explanation
    The given answer, 1+4, is the correct answer because it is the sum of the two numbers provided in the list. The list mentions various reasons for reading, but these reasons do not directly relate to the numbers mentioned. Therefore, the correct answer is simply the sum of the numbers, which is 1+4=5.

    • D. 

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "all of the above" because the strategy of reading can involve multiple techniques, including clustering, inferring, and skimming. Clustering refers to grouping related information together to improve comprehension, while inferring involves drawing conclusions or making educated guesses based on the available information. Skimming is a technique used to quickly go through the text to get a general idea of the content. Therefore, all of these strategies can be used in reading to enhance understanding and efficiency.

    B. Are you working
    Explanation
    The question is asking about the current status of someone's work on special projects. The correct answer "Are you working" is the most appropriate because it is in the present continuous tense, which is used to talk about actions happening at the current moment. The other options ("You work," "Do you working," "You are working") are either in the wrong tense or grammatically incorrect.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "do you come." This is because the question is asking about the origin or location of the person being addressed. The correct structure for this type of question in English is "do + subject + verb." Therefore, the correct form is "do you come."

    The correct answer is "is having." This is because the sentence is in the present tense, and "is having" is the correct form of the verb "to have" in the present continuous tense. The sentence suggests that Alice is currently taking a shower, which is why "is having" is the appropriate choice.

      Drunk

    Correct Answer
    C. Drank
    Explanation
    The sentence is in the past tense, indicating that the action of drinking tea occurred in the past. The word "always" suggests a habitual action, further supporting the past tense. "Drank" is the correct past tense form of the verb "drink", making it the appropriate choice for the sentence.

    The phrase "turn over" means to flip a page or to change the side of an object. In the given sentence, the word "please" indicates a polite request, and the verb "turn over" is the most appropriate action to complete the sentence, as it is commonly used when asking someone to flip a page in a book or document. The other options, "drop out," "put up with," and "try on," do not make sense in the context of the sentence.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have been suffering". This is because the sentence is in the present perfect continuous tense, which is used to talk about an action that started in the past and is still happening in the present. The word "recently" indicates that the health problems started in the past and have continued up until now. Therefore, "have been suffering" is the most appropriate verb form to use in this context.

      Did

    Correct Answer
    B. Make
    Explanation

      Make

    • D. 

      Do

    Correct Answer
    C. Make
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "make". In this sentence, the phrase "If I were to" suggests a hypothetical situation or condition. When expressing a hypothetical prediction, we use the verb "make" instead of "do". Therefore, the correct form is "make a prediction".

    Rate this question:

  • 24.

      Happend

      Make

    • C. 

      Take place

    • D. 

      Do

    Correct Answer
    C. Take place
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "take place" because it is the most appropriate phrase to describe the location of the wedding. "Happened" is the past tense of "happen" and does not fit the sentence. "Make" and "do" are not commonly used to describe where an event occurs. Therefore, "take place" is the best choice to complete the sentence.

    Rate this question:

    Correct Answer
    D. Have
    Explanation
    In this question, the person is asking if they can have a look at what the other person is holding. The verb "have" is the most appropriate choice in this context as it indicates possession or ownership. The other options, such as "take," "make," and "took," do not convey the same meaning and would not make sense in this sentence.
