Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    We shouldn’t ___ dressed before we take a shower.

    • A.

      Get

    • B.

      Getting

    Correct Answer
    A. Get
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "get". In this sentence, the verb "get" is used to indicate the action of obtaining or putting on clothing. It is used in the base form because it is preceded by the modal verb "shouldn't", which requires the base form of the verb. Therefore, "get" is the correct verb form to use in this sentence.

    Rate this question:

    ​​​​​​Lisa shouldn’t ___ chips and chocolate for breakfast every day.

    • A.

      Eat

    • B.

      Eats

    Correct Answer
    A. Eat
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "eat" because it is the base form of the verb and matches with the subject "Lisa" in the sentence. The sentence is talking about Lisa's habit of having chips and chocolate for breakfast every day, and the verb "eat" is used to describe this action.

    • A.

      Drinks

    • B.

      Drink

    Correct Answer
    B. Drink
    Explanation
    When engaging in sports, it is important to stay hydrated. The verb "drink" is the correct choice because it agrees with the subject "they" and is used in the present tense. "Drinks" is incorrect as it does not agree with the subject and is in the present tense. Therefore, the correct answer is "drink."

    • B.

      Goes

    Correct Answer
    A. Go
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "go". This is because the sentence is in the negative form, indicating that the subject should not perform the action of going to bed at two o'clock in the morning. Therefore, the correct verb form to use is the base form "go".

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    ​​​​​​I shouldn’t ___ in the school.

    • A.

      Litter

    • B.

      Litters

    Correct Answer
    A. Litter
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "litter". The word "litter" is a verb that means to throw trash or waste in an inappropriate place. In this context, the speaker is saying that they should not litter in the school, meaning they should not throw trash on the ground or in areas where it doesn't belong. The word "litters" is the plural form of the noun "litter", which refers to a group of baby animals born to the same mother at the same time. However, this meaning does not fit the context of the sentence, so it is not the correct answer.

They can grow to be several meters tall and weigh several tons, making them the largest of all land animals. They have a strong and sturdy build, with thick legs and a large body. Their size allows them to dominate their habitat and have few natural predators. Additionally, their large size also helps them in various activities such as foraging for food, defending themselves, and social interactions within their herd.

This suggests that George participates in sports activities more frequently or excels in sports more than his brother does. The comparative form "sportier" implies that George has a higher level of athleticism or is more actively engaged in sports than his brother.

    • A.

      Smarter

      Smart

    • C.

      Smartest

    Correct Answer
    B. Smart
    Explanation
    Mary is described as "smart" because the word "very" indicates a high degree of intelligence. The word "smarter" suggests a comparison to others, but there is no context provided in the question to support this. "Smartest" implies that Mary is the most intelligent out of a group, but again, there is no context to support this. Therefore, the most appropriate answer is "smart" to describe Mary's level of intelligence.
