      You do

    • C.

      Do you

    Correct Answer

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    What time _____ to school this morning?              

    • A.

      She got

    • B.

      Did she get

    • C.

      Did she got

    Correct Answer
    B. Did she get
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "did she get". This is because the question is asking about the time in the past when someone went to school. In English, when forming a question in the past tense, we use the auxiliary verb "did" followed by the subject and the base form of the main verb. Therefore, "did she get" is the correct structure for asking about the time she went to school this morning.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Be careful! You _____ a mistake.            

    • A.

      Are makeing

    • B.

      Making

    • C.

      Are making

    Correct Answer
    C. Are making
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are making". This is because the sentence is in the present continuous tense, indicating an action that is happening at the moment of speaking. The subject "you" is performing the action of making a mistake. Therefore, the correct verb form is "are making".

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    He _____ breakfast at work.              

    • A.

      Usually have

    • B.

      Has usually

    • C.

      Usually has

    Correct Answer
    C. Usually has
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "usually has." This is because the subject "he" is singular and requires the third person singular form of the verb "has." The adverb "usually" indicates that it is a habitual action for him to have breakfast at work.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    She _____ people who talk a lot.            

    • A.

      Not likes

    • C.

      Don’t like

    Correct Answer
    B. Doesn’t like
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "doesn't like". This is because the subject "she" is singular, so the correct form of the verb "like" is "doesn't like" in the present tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    My cousin _____ history at university.              

    • A.

      Studies

    • B.

      Studys

    • C.

      Studyes

    Correct Answer
    A. Studies
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "studies." The verb "study" should be conjugated in the third person singular form when used with the pronoun "he," "she," or "it." Therefore, "studies" is the correct form to use with the pronoun "my cousin."

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    _____ away last weekend?            

    • A.

      Did you go

    • B.

      Did you went

    • C.

      Went you

    Correct Answer
    A. Did you go
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Did you go." This is the correct form of the question in the past tense. "Did you went" is grammatically incorrect as "did" is already the past tense form of the verb "do," so another past tense verb is not needed. "Went you" is also incorrect as the subject "you" should come before the verb "went" in a question.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A  Why _____?B  Because I’m happy.            

    • A.

      You’re smiling

    • B.

      Do you smile

    • C.

      Are you smiling

    Correct Answer
    C. Are you smiling
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are you smiling" because it is asking about the action of smiling in the present moment. The present continuous tense "are you smiling" is used to talk about actions happening now, which is appropriate for asking someone about their current facial expression.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    My father _____ work. He’s retired.            

    • A.

      Not

    • B.

      Doesn’t

    • C.

      Isn’t

    Correct Answer
    B. Doesn’t
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "doesn't". This is because the sentence is in the present tense and the word "doesn't" is the contraction of "does not", which is used to indicate the negative form of the verb "do" in the third person singular (he). Therefore, it is appropriate to say "My father doesn't work" to indicate that he is retired.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    A    _____?B  He’s shy and quite serious.             

    • A.

      What does your brother like

    • C.

      How’s your brother

    Correct Answer
    A. What’s your brother like
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "What’s your brother like". This question is asking for a description or characteristics of the person's brother. The other options are not appropriate because they are asking about the person's brother's preferences or well-being, rather than his personality or traits.

    Correct Answer
    B. Did

    • A.

      An

    • B.

      A

    • C.

    Correct Answer
    B. A
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a". In this sentence, "week" is a singular noun, so we use the indefinite article "a" before it.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    How often _____ your cousins?            

    • A.

      Are you seeing

    • B.

      You see

    • C.

      Do you see

    Correct Answer
    C. Do you see
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "do you see". This is because the question is asking about the frequency of seeing one's cousins, which requires the use of the auxiliary verb "do" in order to form a question in the present simple tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    What time _____ the film start?            

    • A.

      Does

    • B.

      Do

    • C.

      Is

    Correct Answer
    A. Does
    Explanation
    The question is asking for the correct auxiliary verb to use with the subject "the film" in order to form a question about the time. In this case, the correct auxiliary verb is "does." This is because when forming a question in the present simple tense with a third person singular subject, we use "does" + the base form of the main verb. Therefore, the correct question formation would be "What time does the film start?"

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    A    Why is he _____ that jacket?B  Because it’s very cold today.            

    • A.

      Wears

    • B.

      To wear

    • C.

      Wearing

    Correct Answer
    C. Wearing
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "wearing" because the verb "is" in the question indicates that the action is happening in the present continuous tense. Therefore, "wearing" is the correct form of the verb to match the tense of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    A    Who’s that man?B  Sorry, I _____ him.            

    • A.

    • B.

      Don’t know

    • C.

      Not know

    Correct Answer
    B. Don’t know
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "don't know" because it is the appropriate response in this context. The person is apologizing for not having information about the man in question, indicating that they do not know who he is.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Where _____ born?            

    • A.

      He’s

    • B.

      He

    • C.

      Was he

    Correct Answer
    C. Was he
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "was he". This is the correct answer because it follows the correct word order for asking about someone's birthplace. The question is asking for the birthplace of someone in the past, so the auxiliary verb "was" is used before the pronoun "he".

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    A    What _____ like?B  She’s got long, blond hair and she’s very pretty.             

    • A.

      She looks

    • C.

      Does she look

    Correct Answer
    C. Does she look
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "does she look". This is because the question is asking for a description of someone's appearance, so the appropriate question structure to use is "What does she look like?"

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    My watch _____. It’s broken.             

    • A.

      Isn’t working

    • B.

      Doesn’t working

    • C.

      Isn’t work

    Correct Answer
    A. Isn’t working
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "isn't working". The verb "isn't" is the contraction of "is not" and is used to express the present continuous tense. The word "working" is the present participle form of the verb "work" and is used to describe an ongoing action. Therefore, "isn't working" is the correct form to indicate that the watch is currently not functioning.
