    Explanation

    Explanation
    The phrase "For the past" is the correct answer because it indicates a duration of time. In this context, it suggests that the speaker has been in a particular place for the last seven years. The other options, "Since the past," "Before the past," and "None of these," do not convey the same meaning and are therefore incorrect.

    The correct answer is "To be". This is because the phrase "has to be" is commonly used to express the existence or necessity of a reason or explanation. In this sentence, "has" indicates that there is a reason, and "to be" implies that the reason exists or is necessary. The other options, "Being" and "Be", do not convey the same meaning in this context.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    B. Best experience
    Explanation
    The phrase "It's always been the best experience in this city" suggests that the speaker is referring to a consistently positive and exceptional experience in the city. This implies that there have been multiple experiences in the city, but the best one stands out among them. The other options, such as "Experience," "Most good experience," and "None of these," do not convey the same level of excellence and consistency as the phrase "best experience."
