Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    He wants a sheep/ ship for his birthday.

    • A.

      Sheep

    • B.

      Ship

    Correct Answer
    A. Sheep
    Explanation
    The given correct answer for this question is "sheep" because the person wants a sheep for their birthday. This is evident from the statement "He wants a sheep for his birthday." The word "sheep" is specifically mentioned as the desired gift, indicating that the person is interested in receiving a sheep as a present.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    That's a very small bean/ bin.

    • A.

      Bean

    • B.

      Bin

    Correct Answer
    B. Bin
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "bin" because the statement mentions a small object and both "bean" and "bin" are small objects. However, "bin" is more commonly associated with small objects like waste bins or storage bins, whereas "bean" refers specifically to a type of seed. Therefore, "bin" is the more appropriate and logical answer in this context.

  • 3. 

    Look at these cheeks/ chicks.

    • A.

      Cheeks

    • B.

      Chicks

    Correct Answer
    B. Chicks
    Explanation
    The word "chicks" is the correct answer because it matches the context provided in the question. The phrase "Look at these cheeks/ chicks" suggests that the speaker is referring to a group of baby birds, which are commonly called chicks. The word "cheeks" does not make sense in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    It's a cheap/ chip machine.

    • A.

      Cheap

    • B.

      Chip

    Correct Answer
    A. Cheap
    Explanation
    The word "cheap" is the correct answer because it is a homophone of the word "chip." The question is likely testing the understanding of homophones, which are words that sound the same but have different meanings. In this case, "cheap" means inexpensive, while "chip" refers to a small piece or fragment.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    What a high heel/ hill.

    • A.

      Heel

    • B.

      Hill

    Correct Answer
    A. Heel
    Explanation
    The question presents two similar-sounding words, "heel" and "hill," and asks for the correct answer. The correct answer is "heel" because it is the word that matches the given phrase "What a high heel/hill." This suggests that the question is asking for a word related to a high heel, rather than a hill. Therefore, "heel" is the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Don't eat that pill/ peel.

    • A.

      Pill

    • B.

      Peel

    Correct Answer
    A. Pill
    Explanation
    The given statement advises against consuming a specific object, either a pill or a peel. The correct answer, "pill," aligns with this advice. It implies that the pill is the object that should not be eaten, while the peel may be safe for consumption. Without further context, it is unclear what type of pill or peel is being referred to, but the answer suggests that caution should be exercised specifically with the pill.
