      graduating

    • D.

      graduating from

    Correct Answer
    B. graduate from
    Explanation

    • D.

      consult by

    Correct Answer
    A. consult
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "consult". In this sentence, the speaker is advising someone to seek the expertise of a specialist because the situation is deteriorating. "Consult" means to seek advice or information from an expert or professional, which fits the context of the sentence. The other options, "consult to", "consult with", and "consult by", are not grammatically correct and do not convey the intended meaning.

      isn't it

    Correct Answer
    D. isn't it
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "isn't it". This is because the question is asking for confirmation or agreement, and "isn't it" is a commonly used phrase in English to seek confirmation or agreement with a statement. It is used to imply that the speaker believes the statement to be true and is seeking agreement from the listener.

    • D.

      catch with fire

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Leaving books near an open fire can easily cause them to catch fire. The phrase "catch on fire" means to ignite or start burning, making it the most appropriate choice to complete the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    5. Do you enjoy _____?

    • A.

      to swim

    • B.

      swimming

    • C.

      swim

    • D.

      to swimming

    Correct Answer
    B. swimming
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "swimming" because it is the correct gerund form of the verb "to swim" that is used after the verb "enjoy." Gerunds are formed by adding -ing to the base form of the verb, and in this case, "swimming" functions as a noun to indicate the activity that someone enjoys.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    6. I have trouble _____.

    • A.

      to remember my password

    • B.

      to remembering my password

    • C.

      remember my password

    • D.

      Remembering my password

    Correct Answer
    D. Remembering my password
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "remembering my password". This is the correct answer because it uses the gerund form of the verb "remember", which is the appropriate form to use after the preposition "to". The other options either use the base form of the verb ("remember") or the infinitive form ("to remember"), which are not grammatically correct in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    7. Do you have _____ to do today? We could have a long lunch if not.

    • A.

      Many work

    • B.

      Much work

    • C.

      Many works

    • D.

      Much works

    Correct Answer
    B. Much work
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "much work" because the word "work" is an uncountable noun, so it should be paired with "much" instead of "many." "Many" is used with countable nouns, while "much" is used with uncountable nouns. Therefore, the correct phrase is "much work."

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    8. My brother will _____ for a few nights.

    • A.

      Provide us up

    • B.

      Provide us in

    • C.

      put us up

    • D.

      put us in

    Correct Answer
    C. put us up
    Explanation
    This question is testing the phrasal verb "put up," which means to provide accommodation for someone. The correct answer is "put us up," as it correctly uses the phrasal verb in the appropriate context of someone providing accommodation for a few nights. The other options, "provide us up," "provide us in," and "put us in," do not accurately convey the meaning of providing accommodation.

      hold on

    • B.

      hold place

      take on

    • D.

      take place

    Correct Answer
    D. take place
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "take place" because it is the correct phrasal verb to use when referring to a scheduled event or meeting. "Hold on" means to wait, "hold place" and "take on" do not make sense in the context of a meeting.

      at Tuesday

    • B.

      with Tuesday

    • D.

      in Tuesday

      go together the house party with

    • C.

      go the house party with

    • D.

      together the house party with

    Correct Answer
    A. go to the house party with
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "go to the house party with". This answer is correct because it follows the correct grammatical structure of the sentence. The verb "go" is followed by the preposition "to", indicating the destination of the action. In this case, the destination is "the house party". The phrase "with us" indicates that the speaker is inviting the listener to accompany them to the party.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Before three weeks

      three weeks before

      three weeks ago

    • D.

      three weeks past

      agree with

      agree to

    • C.

      Agree

    • D.

      agree about

    Correct Answer
    B. agree to
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "agree to". This is because when we "agree to" something, it means that we give our consent or approval to it. In this context, the sentence suggests that "they" did not give their consent or approval to John's plan. The other options, such as "agree with" or "agree about", do not convey the same meaning as "agree to" in this sentence.

    • A.

      called to the house of

      called to

    • D.

      called on

    Correct Answer
    D. called on
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "called on". This phrasal verb means to visit someone, usually at their home. In this context, the social worker visited the house of the two old sisters who were ill. The other options, "called to the house of" and "called to", do not convey the same meaning of physically visiting someone.

      celebrate

    Explanation
    Tomorrow is Paul's birthday, so it would be appropriate to celebrate it. Celebrating someone's birthday is a common way to show joy and appreciation for their special day. Praise, honor, and congratulate are also positive actions, but they may not specifically relate to a birthday celebration.

    • C.

      To ask a question

    • D.

      to asking a question

    Correct Answer
    C. To ask a question
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "to ask a question" because the phrase "don't hesitate" implies that the action being suggested should be done without delay or reservation. In this context, the verb "ask" needs to be in its infinitive form, which is "to ask." Therefore, the correct phrase is "don't hesitate to ask a question."
