    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Have got _______ friends?

    • A.

      Much

    • B.

      Many

    • C.

      A lot of

    Correct Answer
    B. Many
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "many". This is because "many" is used to describe countable nouns, such as friends. In this case, we are asking about the number of friends someone has, so "many" is the appropriate word to use. "Much" is used for uncountable nouns, and "a lot of" can be used for both countable and uncountable nouns, but "many" is the most specific and suitable choice in this context.

    • C.

      A little

    Correct Answer
    A. A few

    The phrase "a few" indicates a small number of apples on the plate. It implies that there are more than one or two apples, but not a large quantity. Therefore, the speaker is suggesting to take one apple from the small number available.

    • C.

      Little

    Correct Answer
    C. Little
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "little". This is because "little" is used to refer to an amount of something that is small or not enough. In this context, it implies that there is not much milk in the fridge, and the speaker is asking someone to buy some more. The other options, "a few" and "a little", imply that there is some milk available, but not necessarily a small amount.

    How _______ money has Fred got?

    • A.

      Many

    • B.

      Little

    • C.

      Much

    Correct Answer
    C. Much
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "much". This is because "much" is used to refer to a large quantity or amount of something, in this case, money. The word "many" is used for countable nouns, while "little" is used for a small quantity or amount. Therefore, "much" is the appropriate word to use when asking about the amount of money Fred has.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    There are _______ monkeys at the zoo.

    • A.

      Much

    • B.

      A few

    • C.

      A little

    Correct Answer
    B. A few
    Explanation
    The phrase "a few" is used to indicate a small number of something. In this context, it suggests that there are a small number of monkeys at the zoo. The word "much" is used to refer to a large quantity, so it does not fit the context of the sentence. Similarly, "a little" is used to refer to a small amount of something, not a small number of monkeys. Therefore, the correct answer is "a few."

    • A.

      Some

    • B.

      Any

    Correct Answer
    B. Any
    Explanation

    B. Any
