    • D.

      Does - work

    Correct Answer
    D. Does - work
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "does - work." This is because the question is asking about the location or whereabouts of the subject's father. In this case, "does" is the correct form of the verb "do" to match with the singular subject "your father." Additionally, "work" is the correct verb to use in this context to ask about someone's occupation or job.

    Correct Answer

    • D.

      Studying

    Correct Answer
    C. Studies
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "studies" because the sentence is referring to a doctor, who is the subject of the sentence, and the verb that follows should agree with the subject. In this case, "studies" is the correct form of the verb to match with the singular subject "doctor."

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    He …………… his tooth every morning.

    • A.

      Don't brushes

    • B.

      Isn't brushing

    • C.

      Isn't brush

    • D.

      Doesn't brush

    Correct Answer
    D. Doesn't brush
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "doesn't brush". In this sentence, the subject "he" is singular and the verb should agree with it. The verb "brush" needs to be in the third person singular form, which is "brushes" or "brush". However, since the negative adverb "doesn't" is used, the correct form is "doesn't brush". This indicates that he does not perform the action of brushing his tooth every morning.

    Correct Answer

      May - rains

    Correct Answer
    C. Does - rain
    Explanation
    The question is asking about the frequency of rain in January. To form a question in the present simple tense, we use the auxiliary verb "do" followed by the base form of the main verb. Therefore, the correct answer is "Does - rain" as it correctly follows the subject-verb agreement and forms a grammatically correct question.

    He usually ………………..to school on his bike.

    Correct Answer
    goes
    comes
    Explanation
    The given sentence suggests that the person mentioned in the sentence typically travels to school on his bike. The correct answer options, "goes" and "comes," both imply movement, but "goes" is the more appropriate choice as it indicates the action of going to a particular destination. "Comes" suggests the action of arriving at a place, which is not suitable in this context. Therefore, the correct answer is "goes."

    Rate this question:

      Do - begin

    • B.

    • C.

      Do - begins

    • D.

      Does - begin

    Correct Answer
    D. Does - begin
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "does - begin" because when using the third person singular (he/she/it), we use "does" as the auxiliary verb and the base form of the main verb. In this case, the main verb is "begin" and since it is referring to the lesson, which is a singular noun, we use "does" instead of "do."
