    Correct Answer

    The student are doing their homeworks when I entered the class.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given sentence states that "The student are doing their homeworks when I entered the class." This sentence is grammatically incorrect because the verb "are" does not agree with the subject "student." The correct form should be "The students are doing their homeworks when I entered the class." Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Complete the sentence with a relative pronoun!  Bill Clinton, ____ was the former President of the USA, and had only one daughter.

    Correct Answer
    who
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "who" because it is a relative pronoun used to introduce a relative clause and refer back to the noun "Bill Clinton." In this case, "who" is used to provide additional information about Bill Clinton being the former President of the USA and having only one daughter.

    • D.

      At

    • E.

      On

    Correct Answer
    D. At
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "at" because it indicates a specific location where you can sit. "In" would imply being inside the table, "in front of" suggests sitting facing the table, "beside" implies sitting next to the table, "on" indicates sitting on top of the table. "At" is the most appropriate preposition to use in this context to convey that you can sit in a position near or around the table.

    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that the difficulty of the exam was not the issue, but rather the conditions of the exam room were terrible. This implies that the exam room had some negative factors that affected the test-taking experience, such as uncomfortable seating, poor lighting, distracting noise, or other similar factors. Therefore, it can be inferred that the statement is true, as it indicates that the exam room was indeed horrible.
