Questions and Answers

      To

    • B.

      Too

    • C.

      Two

    Correct Answer
    A. To
    Explanation
    The word "to" is the correct answer because it is used as an infinitive marker in this sentence. The phrase "to play" indicates the purpose or intention of the subject. In this case, the subject needs to play their best in order to avoid being booed by the fans. The words "too" and "two" do not fit the context of the sentence and would not make sense in this context.

    Correct Answer
    B. Its
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "its". In this sentence, "its" is used as a possessive pronoun to indicate that the crowd that could be heard belongs to the stadium. "It's" is a contraction of "it is" and would not make sense in this context.

    B. Then
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Then". In this sentence, "then" is used to indicate the sequence of events. It shows that after the coach gave his pep talk, the team rushed out of the packed stadium. "Than" is used to make comparisons, which is not suitable in this context.

    B. You're
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "you're." In this sentence, the speaker is reminding someone to remember something and then continues the sentence with "a T Bolt." The contraction "you're" is short for "you are" and fits grammatically and contextually in this sentence. It indicates that the speaker is addressing someone directly and telling them to remember something.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "your". In this sentence, "your" is used to show possession. It implies that the person being addressed wears green and gold with pride. "You're" is a contraction of "you are" and would not make sense in this context.

The phrase "exploded into a frenzy of loud hoots and hollars" suggests that something exciting or energetic is happening, and "there" is used to refer to the place where this is occurring. It is not referring to a possessive pronoun like "their" or a contraction like "they're."
