Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    How long ________ (you / learn) English?

    Correct Answer
    have you been learning
    have you learned
    have you learnt
    Explanation
    The question is asking about the duration of time the person has been learning English. The correct answers "have you been learning," "have you learned," and "have you learnt" all convey the idea of ongoing or past learning. "Have you been learning" suggests continuous learning up until the present moment, "have you learned" implies completed learning at some point in the past, and "have you learnt" is a variation in British English.

    I’m tired because I ________ (paint) the house all day.

    Correct Answer
    have been painting
    've been painting
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have been painting" or "'ve been painting." These options indicate that the action of painting the house started in the past and is still ongoing, explaining why the person is tired. The use of the present perfect continuous tense ("have been painting") or the contraction ("'ve been painting") implies a continuous and ongoing action that has been happening for some time.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    I ________ (just / see) Tess in the library.

    Correct Answer
    have just seen
    've just seen
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have just seen," or "'ve just seen." Both options are correct because they convey the same meaning. "Have just seen" is the full form of the present perfect tense, while "'ve just seen" is the contraction of "have just seen." Both forms indicate that the action of seeing Tess in the library occurred very recently, emphasizing the immediacy of the event.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Sorry, I can’t come out. I ________ (not do) my homework yet.

    Correct Answer
    haven't done
    have not done
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "haven't done" or "have not done" because the sentence is in the present perfect tense, which is used to talk about actions that started in the past and are still relevant in the present. In this case, the speaker is saying that they have not completed their homework yet, indicating that it is still pending.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    How long ________ (your brother / have) his car?

    Correct Answer
    has your brother had
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "has your brother had." This is because the question is asking about the duration of time that your brother has possessed his car, and in English, we use the present perfect tense to talk about actions or situations that started in the past and continue up until the present moment. Therefore, the verb "have" needs to be in the present perfect form "has had" to match the subject "your brother."

    Rate this question:

  • 6.

    Correct Answer

  • 7. 

    It really ________ (annoy) me when people shout on mobile phones.

    Correct Answer
    annoys
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "annoys" because the sentence is in the present tense and the subject "it" is singular, so the verb should also be in the singular form. "Annoys" is the correct present tense form of the verb "annoy" to agree with the subject.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    I was ________ (disappoint) when I got a bad mark in my maths exam.

    Correct Answer
    disappointed
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "disappointed" because it is the past tense form of the verb "disappoint." In the given sentence, the speaker expresses their feelings of being let down or unhappy due to receiving a bad mark in their maths exam.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    After three ________ (exhaust) days on the road, we finally reached the house we’d rented.

    Correct Answer
    exhausting
    Explanation
    The word "exhausting" is the correct answer because it is the adjective form of the verb "exhaust." In the given sentence, it describes the days on the road, indicating that they were tiring or draining. This choice fits grammatically and contextually, conveying the idea that the days were physically or mentally demanding.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    It was such a ________ (thrill) film that I was sitting on the edge of my seat.

    Correct Answer
    thrilling
    Explanation
    The word "thrilling" is the correct answer because it accurately describes the film as being exciting and suspenseful. This is supported by the statement that the speaker was sitting on the edge of their seat, indicating that the film was full of thrilling moments that kept them engaged and on the edge of anticipation.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    What really ________ (frustrate) me about learning Polish is the difficult pronunciation.

    Correct Answer
    frustrates
    frustrated
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "frustrates". In the sentence, "frustrates" is used to match the subject "learning Polish" which is singular. This verb form is in the present tense and agrees with the subject in number. It expresses an ongoing action or state of frustration. "Frustrated" is not the correct answer because it is in the past tense and does not agree with the present tense subject of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    My mobile phone ________ (steal) from my bag last week

    Correct Answer
    was stolen
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "was stolen" because the passive voice is used in this sentence to show that the action of stealing was done to the subject (my mobile phone) rather than the subject performing the action. This is indicated by the past tense form of "was" and the past participle form of "stolen."

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    A new hospital ________ (build) in our town right now.

    Correct Answer
    is being built
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is being built" because the sentence is in the present continuous tense, indicating an action that is happening at the moment of speaking. The verb "build" is in the passive voice, indicating that the hospital is the object of the action and not the subject. Therefore, the correct form of the verb is "is being built."

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    When I walked into the office, I realized we ________ (rob).

    Correct Answer
    had been robbed
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had been robbed." This is the correct answer because the sentence is in the past tense and the use of "had been" indicates that the robbery occurred before the speaker arrived at the office.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    People should ________ (fine) for parking in spaces for disabled people.

    Correct Answer
    be fined
    Explanation
    People should be fined for parking in spaces for disabled people because these designated parking spaces are specifically reserved for individuals with disabilities who require easy access to facilities. Parking in such spaces without a valid disability permit shows a lack of consideration and respect for those who genuinely need these spaces. Fines serve as a deterrent and help enforce the rules, ensuring that these spaces are available for those who truly need them.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    It ________ (believe) that crime is increasing in this country.

    Correct Answer
    is believed
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "is believed". In this sentence, the verb "believe" is in the passive voice, indicating that the subject of the sentence is not performing the action. The use of "is" suggests that the belief is a general consensus or a widely held opinion. Therefore, the sentence implies that many people hold the belief that crime is increasing in this country.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    While my car ________ (repair) last week I had to walk to work every day.

    Correct Answer
    was being repaired
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "was being repaired" because the sentence is in the past tense and the action of repairing the car was ongoing during that time. The phrase "was being repaired" indicates that someone else was performing the repair on the car while the speaker had to walk to work.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    I _______ (do) my homework when I suddenly heard a loud noise.

    Correct Answer
    was doing
    Explanation
    The correct answer "was doing" is used in this sentence to indicate an ongoing action in the past. It implies that the person was in the middle of doing their homework when they suddenly heard a loud noise. The past progressive tense "was doing" is appropriate here because it emphasizes the interrupted action.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    We ________ (walk) for about an hour when we realized we were lost.

    Correct Answer
    had walked
    had been walking
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had walked, had been walking". This is because the sentence is in the past perfect tense, indicating an action that happened before another past action. "Had walked" suggests that the walking occurred first, and "had been walking" suggests that the action was ongoing before the realization of being lost.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    When I got home, I remembered that I ________ (leave) my keys in the restaurant.

    Correct Answer
    had left
    Explanation
    The sentence is in past tense, indicating that the action of leaving the keys in the restaurant happened before the speaker arrived home. The phrase "had left" is the past perfect tense, which is used to describe an action that occurred before another past action. Therefore, "had left" is the correct answer as it accurately reflects the sequence of events in the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    The reason he ________ (not go) to the party was because Sam hadn’t invited him.

    Correct Answer
    didn't go
    hadn't gone
    did not go
    had not gone
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "didn't go, hadn't gone, did not go, had not gone." In this sentence, the word "because" indicates that the reason for not going to the party is that Sam hadn't invited him. The past tense "hadn't invited" suggests that the action of not inviting him occurred before the action of not going to the party. Therefore, both the past simple tense "didn't go" and the past perfect tense "hadn't gone" can be used to express the same idea. Additionally, the negative forms "did not go" and "had not gone" are also correct alternatives.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    When the plane landed at Heathrow it ________ (rain) as usual.

    Correct Answer
    was raining

Additionally, she is described as "impulsive," which further supports the notion that she acts without thinking, making decisions based on immediate desires or emotions rather than careful thought or planning. Therefore, both terms accurately describe Liz's behavior and personality traits.
