    Correct Answer
    A. I'm still studying.
    Explanation

    Correct Answer

    Correct Answer
    B. I'll start level 5 when next quarter begins.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I'll start level 5 when next quarter begins." This answer accurately reflects the given statement that the person will start level 5 at the beginning of the next quarter.

    • A.

    Correct Answer
    A. I'll start level 5 before October.
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "I'll start level 5 before October." This answer is correct because the original statement states that by October, the person will have already started level 5. Therefore, it implies that the person will start level 5 before October. The other option, "I'll start level 5 in October," contradicts the original statement as it suggests that the person will start level 5 during October, not before it.

    Rate this question:

  • 7.

    Correct Answer
    A. The house was already clean when I arrived home.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The house was already clean when I arrived home." This is because the sentence "My mother had cleaned the whole house before I arrived home" indicates that the action of cleaning the house was completed before the speaker arrived home. Therefore, the house was already clean when the speaker arrived.
