Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    My sister ________ (not have) music lessons on Wednesdays. 

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "doesn't have" because it is the correct form of the negative present tense for the third person singular pronoun "she." In this sentence, the subject "my sister" is singular and the verb "have" needs to be conjugated to match the subject. Since it is in the present tense and the subject is third person singular, the correct form is "doesn't have."

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    At the weekend, I________  (not get up) early

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "don't get up" because the sentence is in the present simple tense and is referring to a habitual action that occurs every weekend. In this case, the speaker is stating that they do not get up early on weekends. The use of "don't" indicates the negative form of the verb "get up" in the present simple tense.

  • 5. 

    On sunday afternoon, we sometimes ________ (have/has) a picnic in the park.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Hannah ________ (watch) TV every day after school.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "watches" because the sentence is in the present tense and the subject "Hannah" is a singular noun. In the present tense, when the subject is a singular noun, we add "es" to the base form of the verb. Therefore, the correct form of the verb "watch" in this sentence is "watches".

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Abigail  ________  (swim) every night after doing homework

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "swims" because the sentence is in the present tense and the subject "Abigail" is a third-person singular noun. In English grammar, when the subject is in the third-person singular form (he, she, it), the verb form should end in -s or -es. Therefore, the correct verb form to use in this sentence is "swims."

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Noah ________ (not walk) to his school every day.

    Explanation
    Noah doesn't walk to his school every day. The word "doesn't" is a contraction of "does not," indicating that Noah does not engage in the action of walking to school. The present simple tense is used to describe habitual actions, and in this case, it is clear that walking to school is not part of Noah's daily routine.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    My dad ________ (work) every sunday in the cinema.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "works" because it is the correct form of the verb "work" in the third person singular form. In this sentence, the subject "my dad" is a singular noun, so the verb needs to agree with it by using the third person singular form "works." This indicates that the dad performs the action of working every Sunday in the cinema.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Zoe ________ ( not read) the newspaper every morning

    Explanation
    Zoe "doesn't read" the newspaper every morning. This implies that Zoe does not engage in the activity of reading the newspaper each morning. The phrase "doesn't read" indicates a negative action or absence of action, suggesting that Zoe does not perform the specific action of reading the newspaper.
