    • D.

      I see

    Correct Answer
    B. I will see

    • D.

      Started

    Correct Answer
    A. Starts
    Explanation

    D. Are picking
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are picking." This is because the sentence is in the present tense and is referring to a future event. "Are picking" is the present continuous tense, which is used to talk about actions that are happening at the present moment or in the near future. In this case, it indicates that the action of picking Hussein up will happen at nine o'clock.

    The given statement suggests that currently, the cost of meat is high. However, it also states that if people start eating less meat, the prices will eventually drop. This implies that the current situation of high meat prices is not permanent and can be changed if consumption patterns change. Therefore, "Currently" is the correct answer as it aligns with the information provided in the statement.

    • C.

      Are

    • D.

      Won't

    Correct Answer
    B. Will
    Explanation
    The phrase "since it's so hot today" suggests that the speaker is making a prediction or a decision based on the current weather condition. The correct answer "will" indicates a future action or event that is likely to happen. Therefore, it can be inferred that the speaker is planning to have ice cream for dessert in response to the hot weather.

      Handles

    • D.

      Spokes

    Correct Answer
    D. Spokes
    Explanation
    Spokes are the rods or wires that connect the hub of a bicycle wheel to the rim. They provide support and stability to the wheel, allowing it to maintain its shape and distribute the weight evenly. If a spoke is damaged or broken, it can cause the wheel to become unbalanced or wobbly. Therefore, if one of the spokes on a bicycle wheel needs to be repaired, it means that the rod or wire connecting the hub to the rim is damaged and needs to be fixed.

    • A.

      Gravity

    • B.

      Waiting

    • C.

      Distance

    • D.

      Air

    Correct Answer
    A. Gravity
    Explanation
    Walking in space is difficult because there is no gravity. Gravity is what keeps us grounded on Earth and allows us to walk by providing a force that pulls us towards the ground. In space, there is no such force, so there is nothing to keep astronauts' feet on the ground. Without gravity, they would float and have no traction to push off and move forward, making walking impossible.

      Disguised

    • D.

      Fascinated

    Correct Answer
    A. Weightless
    Explanation
