    Correct Answer(s)
    A. The Capitol building

The term "Capitol" is often used to refer to the United States Capitol building, where the U.S. Congress meets.

    Correct Answer(s)

    The correct answer is "the subway" and "the underground". These options refer to the same mode of transportation, which is an underground train system commonly found in cities. "The subway" is a term used in North America, while "the underground" is more commonly used in British English. Both phrases accurately describe a transportation system that operates below ground level. "A segway" is not a correct option as it refers to a two-wheeled personal transportation device.

      By segway

    Correct Answer
    C. By subway
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "by subway" because the phrase "en métro" in French translates to "by subway" in English. This indicates that the most appropriate mode of transportation in this context is the subway. The other options, such as "the underground" and "by segway," do not accurately convey the meaning of "en métro" and are therefore incorrect.
