Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Choose the correct alternatives to complete the text. There isn’t a lot of serious crime in my town. _______ is probably the biggest problem and a lot of it is graffiti. 

    • A.

      Vandals

    • B.

      Vandalism

    Correct Answer
    B. Vandalism
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Vandalism." This is because the sentence mentions that there isn't a lot of serious crime in the town, but graffiti is a big problem. Graffiti is an act of vandalism, which involves defacing property with unauthorized markings or drawings. Therefore, vandalism is the most appropriate alternative to complete the text.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Choose the correct alternatives to complete the text. I suppose _____ is also a problem

    • A.

      Thieves

    • B.

      Theft

    Correct Answer
    B. Theft
    Explanation
    The word "theft" is the correct answer because it fits grammatically and contextually in the sentence. The sentence suggests that the speaker believes that theft is a problem, indicating that they are considering theft as a possible issue. The word "thieves" would not fit grammatically in the sentence as it is a noun referring to the people who commit theft, rather than the act itself.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Choose the correct alternatives to complete the text. There’s a lot of _____ in the supermarket. 

    • A.

      Shoplifters

    • B.

      Shoplifting

    Correct Answer
    B. Shoplifting
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "shoplifting" because the sentence is referring to an action or behavior that occurs in the supermarket. Shoplifting is the act of stealing items from a store without paying for them, which fits the context of the sentence. Shoplifters, on the other hand, refers to the individuals who engage in shoplifting, which is not the appropriate word to complete the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Choose the correct alternatives to complete the text. Sometimes ____ also steal cars. 

    • A.

      Thieves

    • B.

      Theft

    Correct Answer
    A. Thieves
    Explanation
    The word "sometimes" suggests that there are instances when individuals other than thieves also steal cars. Therefore, the correct answer is "thieves" as it refers to people who engage in stealing activities, including car theft.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Choose the correct alternatives to complete the text. We don’t have many other problems, although someone was arrested for breaking into a house. The  _____ was caught when he was leaving through the window. 

    • A.

      Burglar

    • B.

      Burglary

    Correct Answer
    A. Burglar
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "burglar" because it refers to a person who breaks into houses or buildings to steal things. In this context, someone was arrested for breaking into a house, so it makes sense to use the word "burglar" to describe the person who was caught leaving through the window. The word "burglary" refers to the act of breaking into a building to commit theft, but in this sentence, we are specifically talking about the person who was caught, not the act itself.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Choose the best answer to complete the text. When the police ……………………… a case, they normally look for evidence. 

    • A.

      Suspect

    • B.

      Accuse

    • C.

      Investigate

    Correct Answer
    C. Investigate
    Explanation
    When the police investigate a case, they typically search for evidence. This involves gathering information, conducting interviews, examining physical evidence, and analyzing any available data to determine the facts of the case. The purpose of the investigation is to gather enough evidence to support or refute any suspicions or accusations.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Choose the best answer to complete the text. If there’s no evidence, they can’t ……………………… anyone of the crime. 

    • A.

      Charge

    • B.

      Accuse

    • C.

      Collect

    Correct Answer
    B. Accuse
    Explanation
    If there's no evidence, they can't accuse anyone of the crime. Accusing someone means formally charging them with a crime based on evidence. Without evidence, there is no basis for making an accusation.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Choose the best answer to complete the text. They analyze the evidence carefully and when they are ready, they question the ……………………. 

    • A.

      Boss

    • B.

      Detective

    • C.

      Suspect

    Correct Answer
    C. Suspect
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "suspect" because it fits logically in the sentence. The sentence states that "They analyze the evidence carefully and when they are ready, they question the..." The most appropriate word to complete the sentence is "suspect" as it implies that they are questioning someone who is suspected of a crime based on the evidence they have analyzed.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Choose the best answer to complete the text. They only ……………………… that person.

    • A.

      Charge

    • B.

      Analyse

    • C.

      Collect

    Correct Answer
    A. Charge
    Explanation
    The word "charge" fits best in the given sentence because it implies that the person mentioned is responsible for a task or duty. The other options, "analyse" and "collect," do not convey the same meaning and do not make sense in the given context.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Choose the best answer to complete the text. When they think they can ……………………… the case.

    • A.

      Investigate

    • B.

      Question

    • C.

      Prove

    Correct Answer
    C. Prove
    Explanation
    The phrase "When they think they can prove the case" suggests that the missing word should indicate a belief or confidence in being able to provide evidence or establish the truth of something. The word "investigate" implies searching for information or gathering evidence, but it does not necessarily imply reaching a conclusion or proving anything. Similarly, the word "question" suggests uncertainty or doubt, rather than a confident assertion of truth. Therefore, the most appropriate word to complete the text is "prove," as it aligns with the idea of demonstrating or establishing the validity of a case.
