This is because the question is asking about the number of people in the picture, and the statement "There are five" indicates that there are indeed five people in the picture. The other options "Yes, there are," "No, there aren't," and "Are four peoples" do not provide a specific number or contradict the statement that there are five people.

      I like more

    • D.

      I'm rather

    Correct Answer
    C. I'd rather
    Explanation

    Rate this question:

  • 44. 

    He borrowed a lot of money and spent it all, so now he’s in ________________ .

    • A.

      Debt

    • B.

      Budget

    • C.

      Economy

    • D.

      Inflation

    Correct Answer
    A. Debt
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "debt." This is because the sentence states that the person borrowed a lot of money and spent it all, implying that they now owe a significant amount of money to others. Debt refers to the state of owing money to someone or something, and it aligns with the situation described in the sentence.

    ‘Who’s that?’ ‘I don’t know; ______ her before.’

    • A.

      I never see

    • B.

      I’ve never seen

    • C.

      I never seen

    • D.

      I’ve never see

    Correct Answer
    B. I’ve never seen
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I’ve never seen." This is the correct answer because it uses the present perfect tense ("I’ve never seen") to indicate that the speaker has not seen the person before. The other options ("I never see," "I never seen," "I’ve never see") use incorrect verb forms or tenses.

    Rate this question:

      Since all the life.

    • B.

      For all the life.

    • C.

      Since many years.

    • D.

      For many years.

    Correct Answer
    D. For many years.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "for many years." This phrase is used to indicate the duration of time the person has lived in the current location. "Since all the life" and "for all the life" are grammatically incorrect. "Since many years" is also incorrect as "since" is used to indicate a specific point in time, not a duration.

    • A.

      Yes, but not much.

    • B.

      Yes, but not many.

    • C.

      Yes, but not a lot of.

    • D.

      Yes, a lot of.

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes, but not much.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Yes, but not much" because the question is asking about the quantity of bread left. The phrase "not much" indicates that there is a small amount of bread remaining. The other options ("not many," "not a lot of," and "a lot of") do not accurately convey the idea of a small quantity.

      Yes, they were.

    • D.

      Yes, they have.

    Correct Answer
    D. Yes, they have.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Yes, they have." This is because the question is asking about whether or not someone has ever been to a rock concert. "Have" is the correct auxiliary verb to use in this context to indicate past experiences or actions. The other options ("they been," "they ever been," "they were") do not use the correct verb form or tense.
