Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    1.  _________ class will win the homework competition this quarter.

    • A.

      Are

    • B.

      Our

    Correct Answer
    B. Our
    Explanation
    The word "Our" is the correct answer because it suggests that the speaker is part of a specific class and is confident that their class will win the homework competition this quarter. The word "Are" does not provide any specific information about the speaker's class and cannot be determined as the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    3.  _________ you going skiing next week?

    • A.

      Are

    • B.

      Our

    Correct Answer
    A. Are
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Are" because it is the correct form of the verb "to be" to use with the pronoun "you" in a question. The question is asking about the future plans of the person being addressed, so the verb should be in the present tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    4.  I _________ I had to pass the test before I could ski on my own.

    • A.

      Knew

    • B.

      New

    Correct Answer
    A. Knew
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "knew". In this sentence, the verb "knew" is used to indicate that the speaker had the knowledge or awareness of a certain fact or situation. It suggests that the speaker was aware of the requirement to pass the test before being able to ski independently. The word "new" is incorrect in this context as it refers to something that is recently acquired or discovered, which does not fit the meaning intended in the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    6.  She got to school late and _________ she had to hurry to her first class.

    • A.

      Knew

    • B.

      New

    Correct Answer
    A. Knew
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "knew". In this sentence, the word "knew" is the past tense of the verb "know". It is used to indicate that the subject already had knowledge or awareness of something. In this context, the subject got to school late and because of that, she had to hurry to her first class. The past tense of "know" is the appropriate choice here to convey that she was aware of the situation and had to rush.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    7.  "_________ , you can't go to your locker," said Mr. Thompson.

    • A.

      No

    • B.

      Know

    • C.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. No
    Explanation
    Mr. Thompson is telling someone that they are not allowed to go to their locker. The word "No" is the correct answer because it is a negative response that indicates the person cannot do what they were asking.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    8.  Did you _________ that spring break is the first week in April?

    • A.

      No

    • B.

      Know

    Correct Answer
    B. Know
    Explanation
    The word "know" is the correct answer because it is the appropriate verb to use when asking if someone is aware or has information about something. In this case, the question is asking if the person is aware that spring break is in the first week of April. The word "no" is incorrect because it does not fit grammatically or contextually in the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    10.  The laces in her shoes were too _________ .

    • A.

      Loose

    • B.

      Lose

    Correct Answer
    A. Loose
    Explanation
    The word "loose" is the correct answer because it describes the condition of the laces in her shoes. If the laces were too loose, it means they were not tightly tied or secured, which could cause her shoes to slip off or become untied easily. On the other hand, "lose" is a verb that means to misplace or fail to win, and it does not make sense in the context of describing the laces in her shoes.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    11. On _________ day is our permission slip due?

    • A.

      Watch

    • B.

      Witch

    • C.

      Which

    Correct Answer
    C. Which
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Which." In this question, the word "which" is used to ask about a specific day. The question is asking for the due date of a permission slip.

    Rate this question:

    14.  _________ going to buy lunch at the chalet?

    • A.

      Whose

    • B.

      Who's

    Correct Answer
    B. Who's
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Who's". "Who's" is a contraction of "who is" and is used to ask about the person who is going to buy lunch at the chalet. "Whose" is a possessive pronoun used to ask about ownership, so it would not make sense in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    16.  We couldn't finish reading the _________ article in time. 

    • A.

      Hole

    • B.

      Whole

    Correct Answer
    B. Whole
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "whole". In this sentence, "whole" is used to describe the article, indicating that they were not able to finish reading the entire article in time. "Hole" would not make sense in this context as it does not convey the intended meaning.

    Rate this question:

  • 12.

    • A.

      Buy

    • B.

      Bye

    • C.

      By

    Correct Answer
    C. By
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "by". In this context, "by" is used to indicate a location or position. Therefore, the sentence means that we stood near or beside the door at lunch time.

      Buy

    • B.

      Bye

    • C.

      By

      Were

    • C.

      Where

    Correct Answer
    A. We're
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "We're". This is because the sentence is talking about a future action of going to Hyland next week to ski and snowboard. "We're" is the contraction of "we are" which is the correct form to use when talking about a future action.

    Rate this question:

  • 17.

    • A.

      We're

      Where

    Correct Answer
    C. Where
    Explanation
    The question is asking about the location where the laptops are going to be kept. The correct answer is "Where" because it is the only option that is related to a location. "We're" and "Were" are not relevant to the question and do not provide information about the location.

    • A.

      We're
