    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I can't sing nearly as well as Julia." This answer correctly compares the singing abilities of the speaker and Julia, stating that the speaker's singing ability is not as good as Julia's. The word "well" is used correctly to describe the level of singing ability.

    Correct Answer
    C. My dad hates performing despite having a beautiful voice. 
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "My dad hates performing despite having a beautiful voice." This sentence correctly uses the preposition "despite" followed by the gerund form "having" to show that despite his beautiful voice, he still dislikes performing. The other options either have incorrect grammar ("despite he has a beautiful voice") or use the wrong verb form ("despite his a beautiful voice").

    Correct Answer
    A. I hardly know my sister because she's so much older than me. 
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I hardly know my sister because she's so much older than me." This sentence correctly uses the adverb "hardly" to indicate that the speaker has limited knowledge or familiarity with their sister. The other options either place "hardly" in the incorrect position or use incorrect word order, making them grammatically incorrect.

      I did not see James for ages. 

    Correct Answer
    B. I haven't seen James for ages. 
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I haven't seen James for ages." This sentence correctly uses the present perfect tense to indicate that the speaker has not seen James for a long time. The phrase "for ages" emphasizes the extended period of time that has passed since the last encounter with James.

    Correct Answer
    A. I don't remember locking the door. 
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I don't remember locking the door." This answer correctly reflects the speaker's uncertainty about whether they locked the door or not. The other options do not convey the same meaning. "I don't remember to lock the door" suggests that the speaker forgets to lock the door as a regular habit. "I don't forget to lock the door" implies that the speaker always remembers to lock the door.
