      Hardly.

    • D. 

      Hardship.

    Correct Answer
    B. Hard.
    Explanation
    "Hard" is an adjective because it describes the noun it modifies. In this case, "hard" describes the noun "harden." Adjectives are words that provide more information about nouns, such as their qualities, characteristics, or states. "Hardly" is an adverb, as it modifies a verb or an adjective, while "hardship" is a noun, as it refers to a difficult or challenging situation.

      Study.

    • D. 

      Studied.

    Correct Answer
    C. Study.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "study." This is because the sentence is in the past tense and "used to" indicates a habitual action in the past. Since the verb "study" is already in the base form, it fits correctly in the sentence structure.

      It is belief.

    • D. 

      It is believing.

    Correct Answer
    B. It is believed.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "It is believed." This is because "believed" is the past participle form of the verb "believe." In this sentence, the verb "is" is used in the passive voice to indicate that someone holds a belief about something. The past participle form is used to show that the belief is already established or held by someone.

    Correct Answer
    C. In order
    Explanation

      Too little.

    D. Too little.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "too little." This phrase indicates that there is not enough time to reach the airport. The word "too" implies an excessive or insufficient amount, and "little" refers to a small quantity. Therefore, "too little time" suggests that the available time is not sufficient for the task at hand, which is getting to the airport.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Complete the sentence: If I were rich, I______buy a mansion.

    • A. 

      Would.

    • B. 

      Would have to.

    • C. 

      Am going to.

    • D. 

      Will.

    Correct Answer
    A. Would.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "would" because in this sentence, we are talking about a hypothetical or unreal situation (if I were rich), which requires the use of the conditional verb form "would."

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Which of these is a personal pronoun?

    • A. 

      There.

    • B. 

      Their.

    • C. 

      Theirs.

    • D. 

      They.

    Correct Answer
    D. They.
    Explanation
    The word "they" is a personal pronoun because it is used to refer to a group of people or things as the subject of a sentence. It is a pronoun that replaces the noun and functions as a subject in a sentence. In this case, "they" is the correct answer because it is the only option that fits the definition of a personal pronoun.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Which of these is an adverb?

    • A. 

      Quickest.

    • B. 

      Quicker.

    • C. 

      Quickly.

    • D. 

      Sly.

    Correct Answer
    C. Quickly.
    Explanation
    An adverb is a word that modifies a verb, adjective, or another adverb. In this case, "quickly" is the only word that functions as an adverb as it modifies the verb by describing the speed or manner in which an action is done. "Quickest" and "quicker" are adjectives that describe the noun, while "sly" is an adjective that describes a person's behavior.
