    Correct Answer
    C. A

    • D.

      Do

    Correct Answer
    A. Does
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Does". In this question, we are asking about someone's preference for chocolates. To form a question in the present tense for a third-person singular subject (she), we use the auxiliary verb "does" followed by the base form of the main verb ("like"). Therefore, "Does she like chocolates?" is the correct way to ask this question.

    Correct Answer
    B. Writes
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "writes" because the subject "student" is singular, so the verb should also be singular. In this case, "writes" is the correct form of the verb to agree with the singular subject.

    • D.

      Which

    Correct Answer
    C. Whose
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Whose". This is because "Whose" is used to ask about possession or ownership. In this question, it is asking about the ownership of the bag. The word "What" is used to ask about the identity or nature of something, "Who's" is a contraction of "who is" and is used to ask about a person's identity, and "Which" is used to ask about a choice or selection.

      Has gone

    • D.

      Has been

    Correct Answer
    A. Went

    The correct answer is "went" because the sentence is in the past tense and "went" is the past tense form of the verb "to go". It indicates that the person performed the action of going to see his mother in the past.

      Is working

    • D.

      Work

    Correct Answer
    C. Is working
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is working". This is because the sentence is in the present tense and the verb "work" needs to be conjugated to match the subject "he". The present continuous tense "is working" indicates that the action of working is currently happening.

    Rate this question:

    They have _ beautiful books.

    • A.

      Any

    • B.

      All

    • C.

      Some

    • D.

      Lots

    Correct Answer
    C. Some

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    She _ for fifteen years and still likes the job.

    • A.

      Works

    • B.

      Is working

    • C.

      Has been working

    • D.

      Worked

    Correct Answer
    C. Has been working
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "has been working". This is because the sentence is in the present perfect continuous tense, which is used to talk about an action that started in the past and is still happening in the present. The phrase "for fifteen years" indicates the duration of the action, and "still likes the job" suggests that the person's liking for the job has continued over the years. Therefore, "has been working" is the most appropriate choice.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    _ up or we'll be late!

    • A.

      You hurry

    • B.

      Be hurrying

      Hurry

    • D.

      Hurry you

    Correct Answer
    C. Hurry
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Hurry" because it is the imperative form of the verb, which is used to give a command or instruction. In this context, the speaker is telling someone to hurry in order to avoid being late.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Their grades are _ than ours.

    • A.

      More good

    • B.

      Most good

    • C.

      Better

    • D.

      Gooder

    Correct Answer
    C. Better
    Explanation
    The word "better" is the correct answer because it is the comparative form of the adjective "good." When comparing two things, we use the comparative form, which is "better" in this case. "More good" and "most good" are incorrect because we do not use "more" or "most" with the adjective "good" to form the comparative degree. "Gooder" is not a valid word in English.

      Don't

    • D.

      Am not smoking

    Correct Answer
    C. Don't
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "don't". This is because the question is asking about the person's smoking habit, and the correct response is to use the negative form of the verb "do" (don't) to indicate that the person does not smoke.

      've got

    Correct Answer
    D. 've got

      You

    • D.

      A

    Correct Answer
    A. Your

    • D.

      Few

    Correct Answer
    A. Some
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "some" because it is used to express an indefinite quantity of chocolate.

      Did he

    Correct Answer
    C. Has he
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Has he." This is because the question is asking about a past action that is still relevant to the present moment. "Has he" is the present perfect tense, indicating that the action of phoning has occurred at some point before now. The other options ("Had he," "Is he," "Did he") do not convey the same meaning in relation to the timing of the action.

    • D.

      Worst

    Correct Answer
    C. Worse
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "worse" because it is the comparative form of the adjective "bad." The sentence states that the person being referred to did not win anything, indicating that their performance was not good. "Worse" is used to compare two things, implying that the person's performance was not as good as someone else's or a previous performance.

    Correct Answer
    C. Got you

    • D.

      Walk

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The phrase "we'll go" suggests that the speaker is discussing a mode of transportation. The options "by foot," "on foot," and "with foot" all refer to walking, which is a common way to travel short distances. Therefore, the correct answer is "walk."

    • C.

      --

    • D.

      A

    Correct Answer
    A. The
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "the" because the sentence is referring to a specific car, indicating that there is only one car being mentioned. "The" is used to specify a particular noun, in this case, the car that is mentioned earlier in the context.

      Are you

    • D.

      Went you

    Correct Answer
    C. Are you
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Are you." This is because the question is asking about a person's past experiences or actions. The phrase "Have you been" is commonly used to inquire about someone's past experiences, while "Be you" and "Went you" are grammatically incorrect. Therefore, "Are you" is the most appropriate response.

      Have flown

    • D.

      Am flying

    Correct Answer

      Did

    • D.

      Are

    Correct Answer
    C. Did

    Correct Answer
    C. Are running
    Explanation

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Anything

    • B.

      Something

    • C.

      Neither

    • D.

      Either

    Correct Answer
    B. Something
    Explanation
    The phrase "Please tell me something helpful, the rest wasn't" indicates that the speaker is requesting specific information or advice that is useful. The word "something" is the only option that aligns with this context. "Anything" suggests a broader range of options, "neither" implies that none of the options are helpful, and "either" implies a choice between two options, which is not mentioned in the given statement. Therefore, "something" is the most appropriate answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 39. 

    He looks angry. He _ his wallet.

    • A.

      Lost

    • B.

      Has lost

    • C.

      Has been losing

    • D.

      Loses

    Correct Answer
    B. Has lost
    Explanation
    The sentence "He looks angry" indicates that the person is currently in a state of anger. The phrase "has lost" in the answer suggests that the action of losing the wallet happened in the past but is still relevant to the present moment. This is supported by the use of the present perfect tense, which is used to describe an action that occurred at an indefinite time in the past and has a connection to the present. Therefore, "has lost" is the correct answer.

    • C.

      You get

    • D.

      Get

    Correct Answer
    D. Get
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Get". In this context, the phrase "a move on" implies the need to hurry or make progress quickly. "Get" is the correct verb form to convey this sense of urgency. The other options, such as "Gets," "Be getting," and "You get," do not accurately capture the imperative mood and urgency conveyed in the sentence.
