    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Have you got." This is the correct question structure in English to ask about possession or availability of something. The other options are incorrect because they use incorrect verb forms or word order. "Do have you" is not a correct question structure. "Do you got" uses the incorrect past tense form of "get." "Are you have" uses incorrect word order.

    • D.

      Aren't

    Correct Answer
    A. Doesn't
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "doesn't". In this sentence, we are talking about Margaret and her habit of coming by bus. The word "doesn't" is the contraction of "does not" and is used with third-person singular subjects, like Margaret. Therefore, it is the appropriate choice to indicate that Margaret does not usually come by bus.

      Were

    • D.

      Did

    Correct Answer
    D. Did
    Explanation
    The word "did" is the correct answer because it is used to form the past tense of the verb in the question. In this case, the question is asking for the past tense of the verb "say," so "did" is the appropriate choice.

      Do you

    • D.

      You do

    Correct Answer
    A. Are you
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are you". This is because the question is asking about the reason for someone's crying, and in English, we typically use the verb "to be" (in this case, "are") to inquire about someone's state or condition. Therefore, the correct question structure is "Why are you crying?"

    Rate this question:

      You will

    • D.

      Will you

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are you going." This is because the question is asking about future plans for spending holidays, and the correct form to use in this context is the present continuous tense.

      I can

    • D.

      I've

    Correct Answer
    D. I've
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I've." This is because the phrase "never been to theater before" indicates a past experience, and "I've" is the contraction of "I have," which is used to talk about past experiences. The other options, "I'll," "I'm," and "I can," do not convey the same meaning of a past experience.

      Are making

    Correct Answer
    A. Are made
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are made." This is the correct answer because it follows the correct verb tense and subject-verb agreement. "Seiko watches" is the subject of the sentence, and since it is plural, the verb "are" should be used. Additionally, the verb "made" is in the past participle form, which is appropriate for indicating that the watches are being produced in Japan.

The phrase "was he living" is in the past continuous tense, which is used to describe an ongoing action or state in the past. In this context, it suggests that the person being referred to was alive and had a specific living arrangement at a particular time in the past.

This suggests that the person is asking about an ongoing activity or behavior that has been occurring since the person arrived.
