    • A.

      Bear

    • B.

      Bare

    Correct Answer
    A. Bear
    Explanation
    In the forest, you might see a grizzly bear. The word "bear" is the correct answer because it is a type of animal that can be found in forests, including grizzly bears. "Bare" is not the correct answer as it means without any covering or clothing and does not make sense in the given context.

      Byte

    • B.

      Bite

    Correct Answer
    B. Bite
    Explanation
    The word "bite" is the correct answer because it is the appropriate verb to describe what a bear might do to someone if they get too close. The sentence is warning against getting too close to the bear because it might bite you, indicating that the bear could potentially attack or harm someone.

      Hear

    • B.

      Here

    Correct Answer
    A. Hear
    Explanation
    The word "hear" is the correct answer because it is the appropriate word to use in the given sentence. The sentence is asking if the person is able to hear the speaker. The word "here" does not make sense in this context as it does not relate to the sense of hearing.

      Cents

    • B.

      Sense

    • A.

      Eight

    • B.

      Ate

    Correct Answer
    B. Ate

    The correct answer is "ate" because it is the past tense form of the verb "eat" and it correctly completes the question asking who consumed or consumed all the pizza.

    Rate this question:

      Cheque

    • B.

      Czech

    Correct Answer
    A. Cheque
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "cheque" because the sentence is discussing different payment options, and "cheque" is a commonly accepted form of payment. The word "Czech" is a play on words, as it sounds similar to "cheque" but refers to the nationality of someone from the Czech Republic, which is unrelated to the context of the sentence.

    Correct Answer
    B. Clothes

    The context of the sentence suggests that the person wants something new for their birthday. Since "clothes" is the only option related to personal belongings or items that can be given as a gift, it is the most suitable answer.

    • A.

      Serial

    • B.

      Cereal

    Correct Answer
    B. Cereal
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "cereal" because it is a common food item that is typically consumed for breakfast. "Serial" refers to a series of things, such as a television show or a set of numbers, and is not related to breakfast or food in general.

      Chews

    • B.

      Choose

    Correct Answer
    A. Chews
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "chews" because it is the present tense form of the verb "to chew," which means to grind or crush food with the teeth. In this sentence, the word "with her mouth closed" indicates that the action is currently happening, so the present tense form of the verb should be used.
