    Pleas read the FolloCalifornia Strawberry Festival... A Local LegacyHave you ever tried a strawberry pizza? If you went to Oxnard, the "Strawberry Capital of California," in May, you could!Oxnard is in Southern California and this part of the state takes its strawberries very seriously. At the two-day California Strawberry Festival you can sample strawberries prepared in all sorts of ways. In addition to traditional treats such as strawberry shortcake, strawberry jam, strawberry tarts and strawberries dipped in chocolate, there is strawberry pizza! This dessert pizza is topped with strawberries, sour cream, cream cheese and whipped cream on a sweet bread baked like a pizza. Strawberry kabobs dipped in powdered sugar are another delicacy. And drinks such as a strawberry smoothie can wash it all down.Strawberries are big business in Oxnard. The annual strawberry revenues are $100 million from Oxnard's bountiful 6,600 berry acres. Twenty-four companies harvest and cool nearly 16 million trays of berries, which are shipped throughout North America as well as to Germany and Japan. The festival, which attracts more than 85,000 visitors, features three stages with musical entertainment, 335 arts and crafts exhibits, strolling musicians, clowns, artists, face-painting, contests, and a "Strawberryland" for children with puppets, magicians, musicians, and a petting zoo. Taken from http://www.americaslibrary.gov/es/ca/es_ca_strwbrry_1.html

    Correct Answer
    A. Go
    Explanation

    Correct Answer
    D. Does

    • D.

      Can’t be

    Correct Answer
    D. Can’t be
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "can't be." This is because the phrase "I'm afraid" implies a negative or regretful sentiment, and the word "can't" expresses impossibility or inability. Therefore, "can't be" is the most suitable choice to convey the speaker's inability to attend the birthday party.

    • D.

      Had

    Correct Answer
    D. Had
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had." The sentence is in the past tense and is referring to a point in time before the present. The word "since" indicates that the action of not playing occurred after the accident. Therefore, the past tense form "had" is the appropriate choice.

      Away

    Correct Answer
    B. Up
    Explanation
    When someone "gives up" a job, it means they quit or resign from it. In this context, the mother quit her job when the speaker was born. The other options do not fit the sentence in the same way. "Gave in" does not make sense in this context, "gave off" means to emit or release something, and "gave away" means to give something as a gift or donation. Therefore, "up" is the correct answer.

    • D.

      Needn’t

    Correct Answer
    D. Needn’t
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "needn't". In this sentence, the speaker is reassuring someone that there is no need to hurry because they have plenty of time. "Needn't" is used to express that something is not necessary or required. Therefore, it fits perfectly in this context as it implies that there is no obligation to hurry.

    Explanation

      Are made

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are made". This is because the sentence is referring to the bottles and stating that they are made of plastic. The verb "are" is used to indicate the present tense and the subject "bottles" is plural, so "are made" is the appropriate verb form to match the subject and tense of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Weren't

    • D.

      'd not be

    • D.

      How many

    Correct Answer
    C. How far
    Explanation
    The question is asking for the distance from the current location to Berlin. "How far" is the most appropriate phrase to use in this context as it specifically refers to distance. The other options, such as "How long way" and "How long," do not convey the same meaning and may confuse the intended message. "How many" is also not suitable as it is used to inquire about quantity rather than distance.

      Adolescents

    • B.

      Children

    • C.

      Adults

    • D.

      The elderly

    Correct Answer
    B. Children
    Explanation
    Based on the given information, the target audience of "Strawberryland" is children. The California Strawberry Festival is mentioned, suggesting that "Strawberryland" is likely a part of this festival. Since the festival is mentioned, it can be inferred that "Strawberryland" is an attraction or activity specifically designed for children to enjoy.

    Rate this question:

  • 27. 

    The Strawberry Festival gets an annual revenue of $6,600 million from 100 berry acres.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because an annual revenue of $6,600 million from just 100 berry acres seems highly unlikely. This would imply that each berry acre generates a revenue of $66 million, which is an extremely high amount. It is more reasonable to assume that the revenue from 100 berry acres would be much lower than $6,600 million.
