    • B.

      Go

    • C.

      Went

    Correct Answer
    B. Go

    • B.

      Have

    • C.

      Has

    Correct Answer
    A. Had
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had" because the sentence is in the unreal conditional form. The speaker is expressing a hypothetical situation where they have a lot of money, and in that case, they would buy an apartment in Miami Beach.

      Used to

    • C.

      Usually

    Correct Answer
    C. Usually
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "usually". This is because the sentence is talking about a regular activity that the person does on Saturdays. The use of "usually" indicates that playing tennis on Saturdays is a typical or habitual activity for the person. However, this weekend they are unable to play because they are going away.

      If

    • C.

      Unless

    Correct Answer
    C. Unless
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Unless." This conjunction is used to introduce a condition that must be met in order for the main clause to happen. In this case, the condition is that it is not cold. So, the sentence means that if it is not cold, they will have lunch outside tomorrow.

  • 6. 

    I won't speak to her unless she ...

    • A.

    • C.

      Apologizes.

    Correct Answer
    C. Apologizes.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "apologizes." In this sentence, the main clause is "I won't speak to her," and the subordinate clause is "unless she apologizes." The verb "apologizes" is in the present tense, which is appropriate for a hypothetical or conditional statement. It indicates that the speaker will only speak to her if she apologizes.

      Until

    • C.

      When

    Correct Answer
    B. Until
    Explanation
    The word "until" is the correct answer because it indicates that the new manager and his wife will continue to stay in the rented apartment until they find a house to buy. This word implies a specific condition or event that needs to happen in order for them to stop staying in the rented apartment.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    If I ... you, I would look for a better-paid job.

    • A.

      Was

    • B.

      Were

    • C.

      Would be

    Correct Answer
    B. Were
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "were". This is because the sentence is in the second conditional form, which is used to talk about hypothetical or unreal situations. In this case, the speaker is imagining a situation where they are not satisfied with their current job and considering the possibility of looking for a better-paid job. The correct verb form to use in the "if" clause of the second conditional is "were" for all subjects, regardless of whether the subject is singular or plural.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    When we were kids, we ... spend all our money on candies.

    • A.

      Used to

    • B.

      Usually

    • C.

      Use to

    Correct Answer
    A. Used to
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "used to." This is because "used to" is the correct phrase to indicate a habitual action or behavior in the past. In the given sentence, it implies that as children, it was a common practice to spend all of our money on candies.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    If we don't get to the concert early, we ... get good seats.

    • A.

      Don't

    • B.

      Wouldn't

    • C.

      Won't

    Correct Answer
    C. Won't
    Explanation
    If we don't get to the concert early, we won't get good seats. This is because "won't" is the contraction of "will not," indicating a negative future possibility. Therefore, if we do not arrive early, it is unlikely that we will be able to secure good seats.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    I ... use to like spinach when I was a kid but now I love it.

    • A.

      Don't

    • B.

      Won't

    • C.

      Didn't

    Correct Answer
    C. Didn't
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "didn't". This is because the sentence is referring to the past, indicating a change in the speaker's preference for spinach. The use of "didn't" suggests that the speaker no longer likes spinach, contrasting their previous liking for it when they were a child.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    If the bus ... come soon, we're going to be late.

    • A.

      Won't

    • B.

      Doesn't

    • C.

      Don't

    Correct Answer
    B. Doesn't
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "doesn't". In this sentence, we are talking about the possibility of the bus arriving soon. The word "doesn't" is used to indicate that the bus is not expected to come soon. The word "won't" implies a future action, but it doesn't fit the context of the sentence. Similarly, "don't" is incorrect because it is not the correct verb form to use with "bus". Therefore, the correct answer is "doesn't".

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    What will you do ... we can't find their house?

    • A.

      Unless

    • B.

      Until

    • C.

      If

    Correct Answer
    C. If
    Explanation
    The word "if" is the correct answer because it suggests a conditional situation. In this context, it implies that the action of finding their house is uncertain and dependent on certain conditions being met. It indicates that there may be a possibility of finding their house, but it is not guaranteed.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    We'll have dinner as soon ... we get home.

    • A.

      As

    • B.

      Than

    • C.

      When

    Correct Answer
    A. As
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "as" because it is used to compare the time of having dinner with the time of getting home. "As soon as" is a common phrase that means immediately or right after something else happens. In this case, it indicates that dinner will happen immediately after getting home.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    He'll be really pleased if he ... the exam.

    • A.

      Passes

    • B.

      Takes

    • C.

      Fails

    Correct Answer
    A. Passes
    Explanation
    If he passes the exam, it means that he has achieved a successful outcome. This would likely bring him a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction, leading to him feeling pleased.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    What ... you do if you won the lottery?

    • A.

      Would

    • B.

      Do

    • C.

      Will

    Correct Answer
    A. Would
    Explanation
    The question is asking about a hypothetical situation of winning the lottery. The word "would" is the correct answer because it is used to talk about unreal or hypothetical situations. In this case, winning the lottery is not a guaranteed event, so "would" is the appropriate choice to express what someone would do if they were to win.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    The test ... start until everybody is quiet.

    • A.

      Will

    • B.

      Won't

    • C.

      Would

    Correct Answer
    B. Won't
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "won't". This is because the sentence is referring to a future event (the test starting), and "won't" is the contraction of "will not", indicating that the test will not start until everybody is quiet.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    I used ... get nervous when I took exams at school.

    • A.

      Like

    • B.

      For

    • C.

      To

    Correct Answer
    C. To
    Explanation
    The word "to" is the correct answer because it is used to indicate the purpose or intention of the action. In this sentence, the speaker is explaining that they used something in order to get nervous when taking exams at school. The word "like" is incorrect because it is used to show similarity or comparison. The word "for" is also incorrect because it is used to indicate purpose or reason, but it does not fit in the context of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Where did you ... to live when you were a student?

    • A.

      Use

    • B.

      Used

    • C.

      Usually

    Correct Answer
    A. Use
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "use" because the question is asking about the location where the person lived when they were a student. "Use" is the correct verb to indicate the act of living in a certain place during a specific period in the past. "Used" and "usually" are not appropriate in this context as they do not convey the intended meaning of the question.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    I wouldn't say it if I ... think it was true.

    • A.

      Don't

    • B.

      Wouldn't

    • C.

      Didn't

    Correct Answer
    C. Didn't
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "didn't". This is because the sentence is in the past tense and the negative form of the verb "to do" is used to indicate that the speaker would not say something if they did not think it was true.

    Correct Answer
    B. Literature
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "literature" because reading Shakespeare is typically associated with studying literature.

    • C.

      Go to the movies

    Correct Answer
    A. Revise
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "revise". The sentence implies that the speaker puts in a lot of effort to review and study before exams in order to achieve good grades. This suggests that the speaker recognizes the importance of revising their material to improve their understanding and performance in exams.

    • A.

      Sport

    • B.

    • C.

      Discipline

    Correct Answer
    C. Discipline
    Explanation
    The given answer "discipline" is the most appropriate option to complete the question "Was ... very strict at your school?" Discipline refers to the rules and regulations enforced in a school to maintain order and control. If a school is described as strict, it implies that the discipline is enforced strictly, indicating a high level of control and adherence to rules. Therefore, discipline is the most relevant option to complete the question and convey the idea of strictness at school.

    B. Boarding
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "boarding" because the speaker mentions that they like living at home. This implies that they prefer to stay at home rather than live at a school, which is the characteristic of a boarding school where students live on campus. A nursery school is typically for young children, and a state school does not necessarily involve living on campus.

    Correct Answer
    C. Cheat
    Explanation

    Rate this question:

  • 29.

    • A.

      Meet

    • B.

      Met

    • C.

      Knew

    Correct Answer
    B. Met
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "met". This is because the sentence is referring to an action that happened in the past, specifically when the speaker and the other person were at university together. "Met" is the past tense form of the verb "meet", which accurately describes the action of two people coming together for the first time.

    The correct answer is "got". This is because the phrase "got along" means to have a harmonious or friendly relationship with someone. It implies that the subject and the other person have had a good rapport right from the start. The other options, "get" and "met", do not convey the same meaning of an established relationship.

    Rate this question:

  • 31.

      Each other.

    • B.

      Mutual.

    • C.

      Common.

    Correct Answer
    C. Common.
    Explanation

    Correct Answer

    Rate this question:

  • 33.

    • A.

      Touch

    • B.

      Contact

    • C.

      Friends

    Correct Answer
    A. Touch
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "touch" because it is the most appropriate word to use in the given context. When someone moves to a different country, it can be difficult to maintain regular contact or communication with them. However, the word "touch" implies a continued connection or interaction, suggesting that despite the distance, the speaker and Anna are still able to stay in touch and maintain their relationship.

    Rate this question:

  • 34. 

    A building with a lot of apartments.

    • A.

      Story building

      Hotel

    • C.

      Apartment building

    Correct Answer
    C. Apartment building
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "apartment building" because it is the most fitting option based on the description provided. The phrase "a building with a lot of apartments" directly corresponds to the concept of an apartment building, where multiple residential units are housed within a single structure. The other options, "story building" and "hotel," do not specifically imply the presence of apartments.

    Rate this question:

  • 35.

    • B.

      Chimney

    • C.

      Ceiling

    Correct Answer
    B. Chimney
    Explanation
    The correct answer is chimney because a chimney is a structure that allows smoke to escape from a building. It is typically located on the roof and is used to channel the smoke produced by a fireplace or stove out of the building. The other options, such as roof and ceiling, do not specifically relate to the release of smoke.

    Correct Answer
    A. Suburbs
    Explanation
    The correct answer is suburbs. The suburbs refer to the area outside the central part of a town or city. It typically consists of residential neighborhoods, shopping centers, and other amenities.

    • B.

      Tub

    • C.

      Sink

    Correct Answer
    C. Sink

    Rate this question:

  • 38. 

    A house that is not attached to another house.

    • A.

      Cottage

    • B.

      Detached house

    • C.

      Condominium

    Correct Answer
    B. Detached house
    Explanation
    A detached house refers to a standalone residential building that is not connected to any other houses. It is not attached or sharing any walls with neighboring houses. This type of housing offers more privacy and space compared to attached houses or condominiums, making it a popular choice for those who value independence and a sense of ownership.

    Rate this question:

  • 39. 

    You walk up these to get to the front door of a house.

    • A.

      Stairs

    • B.

      Gate

    • C.

      Entrance

    Correct Answer
    A. Stairs
    Explanation
    Stairs are the correct answer because they are commonly used to access the front door of a house. They provide a pathway from the ground level to the entrance, allowing people to easily reach the front door. Gates are typically used to secure the entrance, but they are not directly used to access the front door. Similarly, the entrance refers to the area where the front door is located, but it does not specifically indicate the means of reaching it. Therefore, stairs are the most appropriate option for accessing the front door of a house.

    Rate this question:

  • 40. 

    A small road, from the gate to the door of a house.

    • A.

      Hallway

    • B.

      Driveway

    • C.

      Highway

    Correct Answer
    B. Driveway
    Explanation
    The correct answer is driveway because a driveway is a small road that leads from the gate to the door of a house. It is typically used for vehicles to access the house and park. A driveway is usually located on private property and is not meant for public use like a highway. A hallway, on the other hand, is an interior passage or corridor within a building, which is not applicable in this scenario.
