Questions and Answers
  • 1.

    Explanation

    • A.

      Who she is chatting to now?

    • D.

      Who she is chating to now?

    Correct Answer
    B. Who is she chatting to now?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Who is she chatting to now?" This is the correct sentence structure in English. The subject "Who" is followed by the verb "is" and then the pronoun "she." The verb "chatting" is used correctly, and the preposition "to" is also used correctly to indicate the person she is chatting with.

    • D.

      Yes, am I

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes. you are
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Yes, I am." This is because the question "Are you making dinner?" is asking about the person's action of making dinner. The response "Yes, I am" confirms that the person is indeed making dinner. The other options do not provide a direct confirmation of the person's action.

    Jenny  ________ (put) on a mask. 

    Correct Answer
    is putting
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is putting" because the sentence is referring to an action that is happening in the present moment. The verb "is putting" is in the present continuous tense, which is used to describe actions that are currently taking place. In this case, Jenny is currently putting on a mask.

    Rate this question:

    Mark ________ (look) for his key.

    Correct Answer
    is looking
    Explanation
    The sentence is in the present tense and refers to an ongoing action. "Is looking" is the correct answer because it matches the subject "Mark" and the present continuous tense is used to describe actions happening at the moment of speaking.

      Are running

    Correct Answer
    D. Are running
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are running". This is because the verb "to be" (in this case, "are") is used to indicate an ongoing action in the present tense. Therefore, "are running" correctly expresses that the horses are currently in the process of running.

    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement indicates that the speaker's mother is currently purchasing food at the grocery store. Since it is mentioned that she is doing it "right now," it implies that the action is happening in the present moment. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is grammatically incorrect. The correct form should be "Our teacher is coming." The verb "is" should be followed by the present participle form of the verb "come," which is "coming." Therefore, the correct answer is False.
