    Explanation
    The correct answer is "reads" because it is the correct present tense form of the verb "read" when used with third-person singular pronouns such as "he," "she," or "it." In this case, the verb is being used with an implied third-person singular pronoun, so "reads" is the appropriate form.

    Correct Answer
    A. Finishes
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "finishes". This is the correct form of the verb "finish" in the third person singular present tense. In English grammar, when a verb is used with he, she, it, or a singular noun, it usually takes an -es or -s ending. Therefore, "finishes" is the correct form of the verb for this sentence.

    A. Dances
    Explanation
