      It was two days ago.

    • C. 

      Can you help me?

    Correct Answer
    A. When are you free?
    Explanation
    The given question is "When can we meet again?" and the correct answer is "When are you free?". This answer is appropriate because it directly responds to the question by asking about the person's availability. By asking when the person is free, it indicates a willingness to schedule a future meeting based on their availability.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Would you prefer lemonade or orange juice?

    • A. 

      Have you got anything else?

    • B. 

      If you like.

    • C. 

      Are you sure about that?

    Correct Answer
    A. Have you got anything else?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Have you got anything else?" because it is a response that indicates a willingness to consider other options or alternatives. The previous question "Would you prefer lemonade or orange juice?" suggests a limited choice between two options, and the answer "Have you got anything else?" implies a desire for more choices or alternatives to consider.

      Falling

    • D. 

      Descending

    Correct Answer
    C. Falling
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Falling" because the word "heavily" suggests that the snow was falling in large quantities or with great intensity. The verb "falling" accurately describes the action of snow descending from the sky, making it the most appropriate choice in this context.

      Ought

    • D. 

      Would

    Correct Answer
    B. Must

    The correct answer is "must" because it implies a strong possibility or necessity. In this context, the speaker is indicating that it is highly likely or necessary for them to have left their keys at work since they cannot find them anywhere else.

    Rate this question:

    • C. 

      Way

    • D. 

      System

    Correct Answer
    C. Way
    Explanation
    When you stay in a country for some time, you become accustomed to the way of life of its people. This includes their daily routines, traditions, behaviors, and overall lifestyle. It refers to the collective patterns and practices that are followed by the society. Therefore, "way" is the correct answer as it best describes the overall lifestyle and practices of the people in a country.

      Getting

      Doing

    • C. 

      Making

    • D. 

      Talking

    Correct Answer
    C. Making
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "making" because it implies that the builders are actively constructing or creating the new house. "Getting" and "doing" do not convey the same level of progress or action, while "talking" is unrelated to the process of building a house.

    Rate this question:

  • 7.

      As usual.

    • C. 

      Typically.

    • D. 

      Usually.

    Correct Answer
    A. As usual.
    Explanation
    The phrase "as usual" implies that the person being referred to is often late. Therefore, the speaker started to get angry because the person's lateness was a regular occurrence or a typical behavior.

      Supply

    • C. 

      Give

    • D. 

      Produce

    Correct Answer
    B. Supply
    Explanation
    The word "supply" is the most appropriate choice for the given sentence. It implies providing or furnishing something that is needed, in this case, football shirts. The other options, such as "contribute," "give," and "produce," do not specifically convey the act of providing the shirts, whereas "supply" accurately captures the intended meaning.

      Fail

    • D. 

      Drop

    Correct Answer
    B. Lose
    Explanation
    When a car pulled out in front of her, Jane did well not to lose control of her bicycle. This means that Jane was able to maintain control and balance on her bicycle despite the sudden appearance of the car. She successfully avoided losing control, which could have resulted in an accident or injury.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which sentence is correct?

    • A. 

      They will arrived late.

    • B. 

      They are arrived late.

    • C. 

      They will arriving late.

    • D. 

      They will arrive late.

    Correct Answer
    D. They will arrive late.
    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "They will arrive late." This is the correct answer because it uses the future tense ("will") to indicate that the action of arriving late will happen in the future. The verb "arrive" is also in its base form, which is the correct form to use after the auxiliary verb "will."

    • C. 

      Deliver goods all over the country.

    Correct Answer
    C. Deliver goods all over the country.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "deliver goods all over the country." This is because the job posting specifically states that the agent will be required for nationwide distribution. This implies that the agent will be responsible for delivering goods to various locations across the country. The other options, owning a suitable vehicle for delivery and being a specialist in food distribution, are mentioned as requirements or advantages but do not directly address the scope of the agent's responsibilities.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    My aunt is going to stay with me.

    • A. 

      How do you do?

    • B. 

      For how long?

    • C. 

      How was it?

    Correct Answer
    B. For how long?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "For how long?" because it is the most appropriate response to the statement "My aunt is going to stay with me." This question seeks to inquire about the duration of the aunt's stay, which aligns with the context of the statement. The other options, "How do you do?" and "How was it?" are not relevant in this situation and do not provide a suitable response.

      Approach

    • C. 

      Manner

    • D. 

      Attitude

    Correct Answer
    A. Approach

    The word "approach" fits best in the context of the sentence. It suggests that the person has changed their way of dealing with their studies, possibly becoming more focused or proactive. This change in approach is likely to lead to positive outcomes and success in their studies.

      Involved

    • B. 

      Engaged

    • C. 

      Undertaken

    • D. 

      Enlisted

    Correct Answer
    A. Involved
    Explanation
    The sentence states that those who are involved in crime must be ready to suffer the consequences. The word "involved" means being a part of or participating in something, in this case, crime. Therefore, it is the most suitable word to convey the intended meaning of the sentence. The other options, "engaged," "undertaken," and "enlisted," do not accurately convey the idea of being a participant in crime.

    Rate this question:

    • A. 

      Close

    • B. 

      Turn off

    • C. 

      Break

    Correct Answer
    B. Turn off
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "turn off" because it is the appropriate action to take in order to switch off the projector before leaving the conference room. Closing the projector or breaking it would not achieve the desired result of powering it down.

      Put

      Caused

    • C. 

      Made

    • D. 

      Done

    Correct Answer
    B. Caused
    Explanation
    The word "caused" is the correct answer because it fits grammatically and semantically in the sentence. The phrase "caused you any trouble" is a common expression used to apologize for inconveniencing someone. The other options (put, made, done) do not convey the same meaning and do not fit well in the sentence structure.

    Rate this question:

      That's all right.

    • B.

    • C. 

      It's not the right time.

    Correct Answer
    B. Can I have more rice?
    Explanation
    The question "Can I have more rice?" is the correct answer because it directly responds to the previous statement "Have you guys had enough to eat?" The person is asking for more rice, indicating that they have not had enough to eat. The response "It's not the right time" does not directly address the question and does not provide a clear answer.

    B. I don't think I do.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I don't think I do." The question asks if the person knows the speaker's brother Charlie. The response "I don't think I do" implies that the person is unsure if they know Charlie or not. This suggests that the person is not familiar with Charlie and does not have any recollection of knowing him.
