    • C.

      Her

    • D.

      Hers

    Correct Answer
    C. Her
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Her" because it is referring to Susan's boyfriend. Since Susan is coming to the party on her own, it implies that her boyfriend is staying at home. Therefore, the pronoun "her" is used to show possession.

  • 8. 

    Choose the answer that best completes the sentence.____ best friend lives in London so I only see her about once every two years.

    • A.

      Mine

    • B.

      My

    • C.

      I

    • D.

      Me

    Correct Answer
    B. My
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "My". In this sentence, the possessive pronoun "My" is needed to indicate that the speaker is referring to their own best friend. The pronoun "Mine" would not be appropriate in this context, as it is used to show ownership of a noun rather than to refer to a person. "I" is a subject pronoun and "Me" is an object pronoun, neither of which would be suitable in this sentence.

    • A.

      Your

      You

    • D.

      You’re

    Correct Answer
    A. Your
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "your" because it is used to indicate possession or ownership. In this context, the speaker is asking which person in the photo is the sister of the person they are speaking to. "Yours" is not correct because it is a possessive pronoun used to indicate ownership by the person being spoken to. "You" and "you're" are also not correct because they are not possessive pronouns.

      He

      His

    • C.

      Him

    • D.

      He’s

    Correct Answer
    B. His
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "his" because it agrees with the possessive form of the pronoun "one." In the sentence, the speaker is referring to something that belongs to them, so they are implying that the other item must belong to someone else. Therefore, "his" is the most appropriate choice to indicate possession by a male person.
