    "In spite of" is the correct answer because it is used to show contrast or contradiction between two ideas. In this case, it indicates that despite the bad weather, he still went swimming. The phrase "in spite of" emphasizes the fact that the bad weather did not deter him from going swimming.

      Wouldn´t take

    Correct Answer
    A. Didn´t take
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "didn't take" because the sentence is in the conditional form, indicating a hypothetical situation. The use of "wouldn't be" suggests that the person's level of fitness is dependent on whether or not they exercise every day. The verb "didn't take" matches the past tense of the conditional statement, indicating that the person does not currently exercise every day.

    • C. 

      To be good

    • D. 

      To be well

    Correct Answer
    B. Good
    Explanation
    The phrase "sounds good" is a common expression used to indicate approval or agreement. In this context, "good" is the appropriate word to complete the sentence. The other options do not fit grammatically or convey the intended meaning. "Well" is an adverb and does not match with the verb "sounds." "To be good" and "to be well" are not idiomatic phrases in this context. Therefore, "good" is the correct answer.

    • D. 

      That I had

    Correct Answer
    D. That I had
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "that I had". This is because the sentence is expressing a regret or a wish for a different action in the past. The phrase "that I had" indicates that the speaker wishes they had done something differently, in this case, bought something themselves for dinner.

    • D. 

      Painted

    Correct Answer
    D. Painted
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "painted" because it is the past tense form of the verb "paint." In the given sentence, the verb is referring to an action that will happen in the future, so the past tense is used to indicate that the painting will be completed before the specified time next Friday.

      Had it not

    • D. 

      Didn´t

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    This sentence is expressing gratitude towards the friend Mark for saving the speaker's life.

    • D. 

      I have done

    Correct Answer
    D. I have done
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I have done" because the phrase "Believe me. It's not the first time" suggests that the speaker is referring to a past experience. The present perfect tense "have done" is used to indicate an action that occurred at an unspecified time before now and is still relevant in the present.

    Rate this question:

    • C. 

      Will the tran leave

    • D. 

      Does the train leave

    Correct Answer
    D. Does the train leave
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "does the train leave" because the question is asking for the present simple tense, which is used to talk about scheduled events or regular actions. In this case, the question is asking about the train's departure time, which is a scheduled event. Therefore, we use the auxiliary verb "does" to form the question in the present simple tense.

The other options do not accurately capture the intended meaning.
