    • A.

      Is

    • B.

      Are

    Correct Answer
    B. Are
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Are" because the word "who" is used to refer to a group of people or things, which requires the plural form of the verb "to be." In this case, "they" is the subject of the sentence, so the correct verb form to use is "are."

    • B.

      Deciding

    Correct Answer
    A. Decided
    Explanation
    The word "decided" is the correct answer because it is the past tense form of the verb "decide". The sentence is expressing a past action or decision, so the past tense is appropriate. The word "deciding" is the present participle form of the verb and does not fit grammatically in the sentence.

    A. Were
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Were." This is because the word "we" is a plural pronoun, and in the past tense, the verb "to be" is conjugated as "were" for plural subjects. Therefore, "were" is the correct form to use in this sentence to indicate that multiple people were going to the park.

The word "tasted" is the past tense form of the verb "taste", which would not fit grammatically in this question. Therefore, "taste" is the correct choice to maintain proper verb tense agreement.
