      Any

    • C.

      Little

    • D.

      Few

    Correct Answer
    B. Any
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "any" because it is used in negative sentences to indicate a lack of something. In this case, the speaker is saying they do not have any cigarettes. The other options, "some," "little," and "few," would not convey the same meaning in this context.

    Rate this question:

      Speaks

      Is

    • C.

      Are

    • D.

      Am

    Correct Answer
    A. Speaks
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "speaks" because the sentence is in the present tense and the subject "teacher" is singular, so it requires the verb form "speaks" in the third-person singular form. The verb “speaks” is most appropriate for this sentence as “English” is mentioned and is a spoken language.

      Opened

    • D.

      Close

    Correct Answer
    D. Close
    Explanation
    The teacher is giving a command to Simon to close the window. The verb "close" is the correct form to use in this sentence because it matches the imperative mood of the sentence.

    • D.

      Does

    Correct Answer
    A. Would
    Explanation
    The question is asking about the speaker's preference for a cup of tea. "Would" is the correct answer because it is used to express a polite request or offer. In this context, it implies that the speaker is asking if the person would like a cup of tea. The other options ("Could," "May," and "Does") do not convey the same level of politeness or offer.

      Can

    Correct Answer

    • D.

      At

    Correct Answer
    C. On
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "on" because when referring to a specific day, we use the preposition "on". Therefore, the sentence should be "The examination is on Tuesday."

      When

    Correct Answer
    C. Did
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Did" because the question is asking about a past action, which requires the use of the past tense. "Did" is the past tense form of the verb "do" and is used to form questions and negative statements in the past simple tense. In this case, the question is asking if the person went to the cinema yesterday, indicating a past action.

    • C.

      Has gone

    • D.

      Went

    Correct Answer
    D. Went
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "went" because the sentence is referring to an action that happened in the past. The word "ago" indicates that the action occurred before the present time. "Went" is the past tense of the verb "to go," which fits the context of the sentence.

      Go

    • D.

      Would go

    Correct Answer
    C. Go
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "go" because it is the base form of the verb and matches the conditional structure of the sentence. The sentence is expressing a hypothetical situation ("If you...") and in this case, the verb should be in the base form. The other options ("will go," "went," "would go") do not match the conditional structure or the tense of the sentence.
