      Enough

    • B.

      Too much

    • C.

      Too many

    Correct Answer
    A. Enough
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "enough" because the sentence is expressing a lack of salt in the meal. "Enough" means an adequate or sufficient amount, so it fits the context of the sentence. The other options, "too much" and "too many," imply an excessive amount, which contradicts the meaning of the sentence.

    • C.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "too much" because the phrase "I'm very tired" indicates that the speaker is exhausted, implying that they have been doing a lot of work. By using "too much" in the sentence, it suggests that the amount of work they have to do is excessive and overwhelming, contributing to their fatigue.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    I don't like the weather in Ireland. There is …................... rain there.

    • A.

      Enough

    • B.

      Too much

    • C.

      Too many

    Correct Answer
    B. Too much
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "too much" because the sentence states that the person does not like the weather in Ireland, suggesting that there is an excessive amount of rain. "Enough" would imply that there is a satisfactory amount of rain, which contradicts the person's dislike for the weather. "Too many" would be used to describe a countable noun, such as "too many rainy days," but since rain is not countable, it is not the appropriate choice.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Enough

    • B.

      Too much

    • C.

      Too many

    Correct Answer
    A. Enough
    Explanation
    The phrase "I haven't got enough time" indicates that the speaker lacks an adequate amount of time. The word "enough" is used to express sufficiency or adequacy in this context. The other options, "too much" and "too many," imply an excessive amount, which does not fit the meaning conveyed in the sentence.

      Enough

    • B.

      Too much

    • C.

      Too many

    Correct Answer
    B. Too much
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "too much" because the sentence states that drinking a certain amount of coffee is not good for you. "Enough" would imply that the amount of coffee is sufficient, which contradicts the given information. "Too many" is used for countable nouns, but coffee is not countable in this context. Therefore, "too much" is the appropriate phrase to indicate an excessive amount of coffee.

    C. Too much

    A. Enough
    Explanation
    The sentence states that the person does not have enough time, indicating that they have a limited amount of time available. This implies that they are in a hurry and will likely be late for something. The phrase "enough time" fits perfectly in this context, conveying the idea of a sufficient amount of time needed to complete a task or reach a destination.
