      Finally seen

    • D.

      Has finally seen

    Correct Answer
    B. Finally saw
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "finally saw". This is because the phrase "once she" indicates a past event, and the past simple tense is used to describe completed actions in the past. Therefore, "finally saw" is the appropriate verb form to use in this context.

    • D.

      Few

    Correct Answer
    C. A little
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "A little" because it indicates a small quantity of bread. The phrase "I should go and buy some" suggests that there is not enough bread available, but there is still a small amount left. "A little" is the appropriate phrase to use in this context to convey the idea of needing more bread.

    • D.

      Becomes

    Correct Answer
    D. Becomes

    Correct Answer
    D. Be careful
    Explanation
    The phrase "Mind the threshold or you will stumble and fall down" implies that one should be cautious and attentive in order to avoid any potential danger or negative consequences. Therefore, the correct answer "Be careful" aligns with the idea of being cautious and mindful of the threshold to prevent any accidents or mishaps.

      Seeing

    • D.

      Never seen

    Correct Answer
    A. Ever seen 
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "ever seen". This is because the phrase "ever seen" is used to ask if someone has watched a movie at any point in their life. The other options, "already seen", "seeing", and "never seen", do not convey the same meaning as the original question.

      Is saying/are talking

    • C.

      Say/is talking

    Correct Answer
    A. Are saying/is talking
    Explanation
    In this sentence, the subject "everybody" is plural, so the correct verb form to use is "are saying." Additionally, since "everybody" is a collective noun referring to a group of individuals, the verb "is talking" should be in the singular form. Therefore, the correct answer is "are saying/is talking."

    Good readers shouldn't pay attention to graphic aids.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false. Good readers should pay attention to graphic aids as they can provide additional information, clarify concepts, and enhance understanding of the text. Graphic aids such as charts, diagrams, and illustrations can visually represent data, relationships, and processes, making it easier for readers to comprehend complex information. Ignoring graphic aids can result in a limited understanding of the text and may lead to misinterpretation or incomplete comprehension of the subject matter. Thus, good readers should actively engage with and analyze graphic aids to enhance their reading experience.
