    A. Have you been
    Explanation
    The question is asking about the duration of someone's marriage. The correct answer is "have you been" because it is the present perfect continuous tense, which is used to talk about an action that started in the past and is still ongoing. In this case, the question is asking about the length of time the person has been married, implying that the marriage is still ongoing.

    • D.

      Look

    Correct Answer
    C. Have looked
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have looked" because the phrase "when I have looked through it" indicates that the action of looking through the newspaper will be completed before the return of the newspaper. The use of the present perfect tense ("have looked") suggests that the action of looking through the newspaper is expected to happen in the future, but will be completed before a specific point in time (the return of the newspaper).

    • C.

      Young boys enough

    • D.

      Enough youngest boys

    Correct Answer
    B. Enough young boys
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "enough young boys" because it follows the correct adjective order. In English, we usually use adjectives in a specific order: opinion, size, age, shape, color, origin, material, and purpose. In this case, "enough" describes the quantity, and "young" describes the age of the boys. Therefore, "enough young boys" is the correct phrase.

      Hasn't ever saw

    • D.

      Didn't ever see

    Correct Answer
    B. Hasn't ever seen
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "hasn't ever seen." This is because the sentence is in the present perfect tense, indicating an action that started in the past and continues up until the present. The word "hasn't" is the contraction of "has not," which is used with the present perfect tense. The verb "seen" is the past participle form of "see," which is the correct verb form to use in this tense.

      Were you able to

    • D.

      Will you able to

    Correct Answer
    A. Could you
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Could you" because it is a polite way of asking for help. The phrase "Could you" implies a request for assistance and shows respect towards the person being asked.

    • D.

      That you were spoke to

    Correct Answer
    C. That you were speaking to
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "that you were speaking to." This answer correctly completes the question by using the relative pronoun "that" followed by the clause "you were speaking to." This construction indicates that the woman being referred to is the one with whom the person was having a conversation.

    • D.

      However well paid it was

    Correct Answer
    D. However well paid it was

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    The financial director _________ for almost an hour.

    • A.

      Kept us to wait

    • B.

      Kept us waiting

    • C.

      Made us to wait

    • D.

      Made us waiting

    Correct Answer
    B. Kept us waiting
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "kept us waiting" because it is the correct phrasal verb to use in this context. "Kept us to wait" and "made us to wait" are grammatically incorrect. "Made us waiting" is also incorrect as "made" should be followed by an infinitive verb. Therefore, "kept us waiting" is the only grammatically correct option that conveys the intended meaning of the sentence.
