    • A.

      Cloudy

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    A. Cloudy
    Explanation
    The given answer "cloudy" suggests that the weather is characterized by a significant amount of clouds in the sky. This typically means that the sky is partially or completely covered with clouds, which can result in reduced sunlight and a gloomy atmosphere. Cloudy weather is often associated with overcast conditions and the potential for precipitation, such as rain or snow.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Hi, Rick. This is Jennifer. I ________ (call) from home.

    Correct Answer
    'm calling
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 'm calling. This is the contraction of "I am calling", which is the appropriate verb form to use in this context. The sentence is in the present continuous tense, indicating an action that is happening at the moment of speaking. Therefore, "I am calling" expresses that Jennifer is currently making a phone call from home.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    I hope you ________ (not working) today.

    Correct Answer
    're not working
    aren't working
    Explanation
    The given correct answer for this question is 're not working' and 'aren't working'. Both of these options are contractions of the phrase "are not working" and can be used interchangeably in this context. The verb "hope" is used to express a desire or wish for something to happen, and in this case, it is expressing the hope that the person is not working today. The contraction 're not working' and 'aren't working' indicate the negation of the action of working in the present tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    My friend Alicia ________ (visit) from los Angeles.

    Correct Answer
    's visiting
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "'s visiting". This is the correct form of the present continuous tense for the subject "Alicia" and the verb "visit". The contraction "'s" is used for the subject "Alicia" to indicate possession or a characteristic action. Therefore, the sentence correctly states that Alicia is currently visiting from Los Angeles.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    It ________ (rain) and cold,

    Correct Answer
    's raining
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 's raining. This is a contraction of "it is raining," indicating that the weather is currently rainy.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    So we ________ (not go) out. Do you want to come over? Give me a call

    Correct Answer
    're not going
    aren't going
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 're not going, aren't going. This is because the sentence is in the negative form and refers to the future. In English, when we want to express a negative future action, we use the auxiliary verb "are" or "are not" followed by the base form of the main verb. In this case, both "are not going" and "aren't going" are correct ways to express the negative future action of not going out.

    Rate this question:

  • 16.

    Correct Answer

    The given answer is the same as the question itself. It correctly rephrases the question "How much is your brother studying this semester?" without any grammatical errors or changes in meaning.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    What  /  your parents  /  do  /  these days

    Correct Answer
    What are your parents doing these days?
    Explanation
    The given answer is correct because it accurately rearranges the words in the question to form a grammatically correct sentence. The question is asking about the current activities of the person's parents, and the answer reflects this by rearranging the words in the correct order.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    You  /  spend  /  a lot of time  /  with your friends  /  this month

    Correct Answer
    Are you spending a lot of time with your friends this month?
    Explanation
    The given answer is correct because it is a question that directly corresponds to the given statement. The statement mentions "you spend a lot of time with your friends this month," and the answer restates the statement in the form of a question, "Are you spending a lot of time with your friends this month?" This shows that the answer is a logical and accurate response to the given statement.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Your best friend  /  play  /  any sports  /  this year

    Correct Answer
    Is your best friend playing any sports these days?

      Do

    • C.

      Go

    C. Go
    Explanation
    The verb "go" is the correct answer because it is commonly used to indicate participation in an activity or event. In this case, the activity is bowling, and "go" accurately reflects the action of going to a bowling alley to play the game. The other options, "play" and "do," do not fit as well in this context.

      Playing

    • B.

      Doing

    • C.

      Going

    Correct Answer
    B. Doing

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    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 the sentence, the subject "my sister" is singular, so we need a verb that agrees with a singular subject. "Plays" and "does" are not appropriate because they do not match the subject. "Goes" is the correct verb form to use with a singular subject, indicating that the sister goes running in the park twice a week.

    Rate this question:

    I'm not ________ soccer this year.

    • A.

      Playing

    • B.

      Doing

    • C.

      Going

    Correct Answer
    A. Playing
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "playing" because the sentence is discussing the action of participating in soccer. The verb "playing" is the most appropriate choice to indicate engaging in the activity of soccer. The other options, "doing" and "going," do not accurately convey the intended meaning of the sentence in relation to soccer.

    Rate this question:

    Marissa:  I'm studying law. Ben:         That's cool. ________________________

    Correct Answer

    Correct Answer
    Do you like Hawaii?
    Explanation
    The given correct answer, "Do you like Hawaii?", is an example of a follow-up question. Ben is responding to Marissa's statement about enjoying school and is trying to continue the conversation by asking her opinion about Hawaii. This question helps to keep the conversation going and shows interest in Marissa's preferences and experiences.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    Marissa:  Oh, it's wonderful! The weather is great, and I really like the beaches. Ben:         I know! I spend a lot of time at the beach. ________________________ Marissa:  Actually, I'm taking surfing lessons!...

    Correct Answer
    Do you like surfing?

    Based on the conversation, Marissa mentions that she is taking surfing lessons. Ben's response "I know!
