    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation

  • 9. 

    Hank should to study before he goes to sleep at night because it will help him remember more.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Studying before going to sleep at night does not necessarily help in remembering more. The effectiveness of studying before sleep depends on various factors such as individual learning styles, concentration levels, and overall sleep quality. Some people may find it beneficial to study before sleep as it allows them to consolidate information during the sleep cycle. However, for others, studying before sleep may lead to decreased focus and retention. Therefore, the statement is not universally true, and the answer is false.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False

    The given sentence is grammatically incorrect. The correct form should be "Tony has gone hiking every morning for the last month." The verb "has gone" is the correct past participle form of "go." Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Cindy is going to the park every day for the past five days.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it says Cindy has been going to the park every day for the past five days. However, the use of "every day" implies that Cindy has been going to the park continuously for five days, which is not possible since the statement only mentions "the past five days." Therefore, Cindy may have gone to the park on some of the past five days, but not every single day.
