    • D.

      Eaten

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "eating" because it is the correct form of the verb to use in this sentence.

      Any

    • C.

      A little

    • D.

      A few

    Correct Answer
    D. A few
    Explanation
    The phrase "a few" is the correct answer because it indicates a small number of burglaries in the area. This implies that there have been some incidents, but not a large or alarming amount. The other options, such as "much" and "any," suggest a larger quantity or a lack of burglaries, which does not align with the context of the sentence. "A little" is also incorrect because it is used to describe uncountable nouns, whereas "burglaries" is countable.

    The correct answer is "haven't seen". This is because the sentence is in the present perfect tense, which is used to talk about an action that started in the past and is still ongoing or has just been completed. In this case, the speaker is saying that they have not seen Jane since last Christmas, indicating that they have not had any recent encounters with her.

    In the future, the energy people use in their homes will not come from oil. The use of "won't come" and "will not come" indicates that oil will not be the source of energy for homes in the future. This suggests that alternative sources of energy, such as renewable energy, will be utilized instead.
