      Getting

    • B.

      Become

    • C.

      Get

    Correct Answer
    A. Getting
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "getting". This is because the sentence is referring to a specific event or achievement in the past, which is getting married. The verb "getting" is the correct form to use in this context to indicate the action of becoming married.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Education.............been a big part of my life. I really enjoyed university.

    • A.

      Is

    • B.

      Was

    • C.

      Has

    Correct Answer
    C. Has
    Explanation
    The word "has" is the correct answer because the sentence is written in the present perfect tense. The phrase "has been" indicates that education has been a continuous and ongoing part of the person's life. The use of "has" suggests that education is still a significant aspect of their life, even though they specifically mention enjoying university in the past.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    I would like to........children sometime in the future.

    • A.

      Have

    • B.

      Having

    • C.

      Be

    Correct Answer
    A. Have
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have" because it is the correct form of the verb to express the desire or intention to have children in the future. "Having" is the present participle form and does not fit the context of the sentence. "Be" is also incorrect as it does not convey the desired meaning of wanting to have children.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Money is important to me but...........important as my health.

    • A.

      As

    • B.

      Not as

    • C.

      Don't as

    Correct Answer
    B. Not as
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "not as". This is because the sentence is comparing the importance of money with the importance of health. The phrase "not as" is used to indicate that money is not as important as health.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    As long.......you are happy there is nothing to worry about.

    • A.

      Is

    • B.

      As

    • C.

      Was

    Correct Answer
    B. As
    Explanation
    The word "as" is the correct answer because it is used to compare two things that are equal or similar in a certain aspect. In this case, it is comparing the duration of being happy to the absence of worry. The sentence implies that as long as you are happy, there is no need to worry. The other options, "is" and "was," do not convey the same meaning of comparison and would not fit in the sentence structure.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    ...........I was younger I had a car accident and that made me completely change the way I thought about life.

    • A.

      Before

    • B.

      Once

    • C.

      When

    Correct Answer
    C. When
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "When". The sentence structure suggests that the car accident happened at a specific point in time, indicating the use of "When" to introduce that event. "Once" would imply a repeated or habitual action, and "Before" would imply that the car accident happened before the speaker's younger years, which does not make sense in the context of the sentence.

      Would

    Correct Answer
    C. Would
    Explanation
    The given sentence is in the conditional form, expressing a hypothetical situation. The phrase "If I could go back to one moment in my life" suggests that the speaker is imagining a scenario that is not possible in reality. The use of "would" in the answer indicates the speaker's desire or intention to go back to school and study harder if given the opportunity.

      May

    Correct Answer

    • B.

      Would

    • C.

      Want

    Correct Answer
    C. Want

    The missing word in the first sentence should be "want" because it fits grammatically and makes sense in the context of the sentence. The second sentence also supports this, as it expresses a desire to stay young forever.

    Correct Answer
    A. Like
    Explanation

      On

    Correct Answer
    B. To

    Correct Answer
    C. Watch
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "watch" because the sentence is talking about a present action that should be done in the future. The verb "watch" is in the base form, which is used to express actions that are not yet completed. The other options "watched" and "watching" are in the past and present participle forms respectively, which do not fit the context of the sentence.

    • C.

      Value

    Correct Answer
    B. Worth

    B. Was

      Spend time

    • B.

      Spend

    Correct Answer
    C. Spend
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "spend." The sentence is in the conditional form, expressing a hypothetical situation. The verb "spend" is the correct choice because it matches the verb tense of "was" in the if-clause. The speaker is imagining a future scenario where tomorrow is their last day, and in that case, they would want to spend the whole day with friends and family.

    Rate this question:

    • C.

      Too

    Correct Answer
    B. Much
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "much" because it is used to describe an uncountable noun like "joy." "Many" is used for countable nouns, "too" is used to indicate excessive amounts, and "so" is used to intensify an adjective or adverb. However, in this sentence, we are talking about the quantity of joy, which is an uncountable noun, so "much" is the appropriate choice.
