    Correct Answer

    • A.

      Night

    • B.

      Afternoon

    Correct Answer
    B. Afternoon
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "afternoon" because the sentence implies that the person goes to yoga class in the later part of the day, specifically after noon. The word "night" is mentioned as a distractor, but it is not the correct answer because it is the opposite of the intended time frame.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Cloudy

    • B.

      Sunny

    Correct Answer
    A. Cloudy
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "cloudy" because the question is asking about the weather condition. "Cloudy" refers to a weather condition where the sky is covered with clouds, resulting in less sunlight reaching the ground.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    INSTRUCTIONS: Complete the phone message. Use the present continuous and contractions.  Hi, Rick. This is Jennifer. I _______________ (call)

    Correct Answer
    ¨m calling
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I'm calling". The present continuous tense is used to describe an action that is happening at the moment of speaking. In this case, Jennifer is currently making a phone call to Rick. The contraction "I'm" is used to combine the subject pronoun "I" with the auxiliary verb "am".

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    from home. I hope you _______________ (not work)

    Correct Answer
    ¨re not working
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "¨re not working" because it completes the sentence in a grammatically correct way. The phrase "I hope you" implies a desire or wish, and the verb phrase "¨re not working" expresses the hope that the person is not currently engaged in work.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    today. My friend Alicia _______________ (visit)

    Correct Answer
    ¨s visiting
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "¨s visiting". This is because the sentence is written in the present tense and the subject "Alicia" is a singular noun. In the present tense, when using the third person singular (he, she, it), we add "s" to the base form of the verb. Therefore, the correct form of the verb "visit" in this sentence is "visiting".

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    from Los Angeles. It ________________ (rain) and 

    Correct Answer
    ¨s raining
    Explanation
    The given correct answer "¨s raining" is the contraction of "it is raining". This indicates that the current weather condition in Los Angeles is rain.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    cold, so we _______________ (not go) out.

    Correct Answer
    ¨re not going
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "¨re not going." This is because the sentence is in the present tense and is expressing a negative action or decision. The phrase "¨re not going" indicates that the speaker and possibly others will not go out due to the cold weather.

    Rate this question:

    Do you want o come over? Give me a call.

    INSTRUCTIONS: Write questions with the present continuous.  (you / get / enough sleep / these days)

    Correct Answer

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    (How much / your brother / study / this semester)

    Correct Answer

    (you / spend / a lot of time / with your friends / this month)

    Are you spending a lot of time with your friends this month?

    • A.

      Playing

    • B.

      Doing

  • 17. 

    We usually .................... bowling on Saturday night. 

    • A.

      Play

    • B.

      Go

    • C.

      Do

    Correct Answer
    B. Go
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "go" because it is commonly used when referring to participating in an activity or event. In this case, the sentence suggests that "we" have a regular habit of going bowling on Saturday nights.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    I ...........................aerobics every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

    • A.

      Play

    • B.

      Do

    • C.

      Go

    Correct Answer
    B. Do
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "do". In this sentence, the verb "do" is used to indicate the performance of an activity or exercise. Therefore, the correct phrase would be "do aerobics". The verbs "play" and "go" are not suitable in this context as they do not convey the same meaning as "do" when it comes to exercising.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    My brothers are ..................... karate this fall.

    • A.

      Playing

    • B.

      Doing

    • C.

      Going

    Correct Answer
    B. Doing
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "doing" because the verb "doing" is used to describe an ongoing action or activity. In this sentence, the phrase "My brothers are doing karate this fall" indicates that the brothers are actively participating in karate during the fall season. The verbs "playing" and "going" do not accurately convey the sense of actively participating in an activity like karate.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    My sister ..................... running in the park twice a week. 

    • A.

      Plays

    • B.

      Does

    • C.

      Goes

    Correct Answer
    C. Goes
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "goes". In this sentence, the verb "goes" is used to indicate the action of someone regularly running in the park twice a week. The verb "plays" does not fit in the context of running, and the verb "does" is not used to describe an action like running. Therefore, "goes" is the most appropriate verb to use in this sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    I´m not ..................... soccer this year.

    • A.

      Playing

    • B.

      Doing

    • C.

      Going

    Correct Answer
    A. Playing
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "playing". The sentence is about the speaker's lack of involvement in soccer this year. The verb "playing" is the most appropriate choice as it indicates actively participating in the sport. The other options, "doing" and "going", do not fit the context of the sentence as they do not convey the same meaning of being involved in soccer.
