    • D.

      Doesn't have

    Correct Answer
    B. Don't have
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "don't have" because the sentence is in the present simple tense and the subject is "I". In the present simple, we use "don't" or "doesn't" to negate the verb. Since "I" is the subject, we use "don't" to indicate that the speaker does not possess a sister.

    • C.

      I do

    • D.

      I come

    Correct Answer
    A. Do I
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "do I". This is because the sentence is in the present simple tense and uses the auxiliary verb "do" to form the question. The subject "you" is followed by the verb "come", and in order to make a question, the auxiliary verb "do" is used before the subject "I". Therefore, the correct formation of the question is "do I".

  • 9.

    • D.

      Had

    Correct Answer
    A. Did
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Did." In this question, the verb "have" is being used in the past tense to ask about someone's vacation last week. The correct form of the verb to use in this case is "did," which is the past tense form of the auxiliary verb "do."

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    You .......... smoke in the classroom.

      Shouldn't

    • B.

    • D.

      Have not

    Correct Answer
    A. Shouldn't
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "shouldn't." This is because smoking is generally not allowed in classrooms due to health and safety reasons. The word "shouldn't" implies a recommendation or advice against smoking in the classroom.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    I sing badly, but my girlfriend sings ..........

    • A.

      Good

    • B.

      Well

    • C.

      Goodly

    • D.

      Badly

    Correct Answer
    B. Well
    Explanation
    The word "well" is the correct answer because it is an adverb that describes the action of singing. In this context, it means that the girlfriend sings in a skillful or satisfactory manner. "Good" is an adjective and cannot modify the verb "sing" directly. "Goodly" is an archaic adverb that is rarely used in modern English. "Badly" would be the opposite of what is implied in the sentence, as it means singing in a poor or unsatisfactory manner.

    • D.

      Better

    Correct Answer
    D. Better
    Explanation
    The given sentence is comparing Chinese food to Korean food and stating that Korean food is superior. The word "better" is the correct answer as it is the comparative form of the adjective "good." It indicates that Korean food is of higher quality or more desirable than Chinese food.

      I could

    Correct Answer
    C. Could I

      Never saw

      Have never seen

    • C.

      Never see

    • D.

      Am never seeing

    Correct Answer
    B. Have never seen
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have never seen." This is because the speaker is referring to a past experience or lack thereof. The use of "have" indicates a present perfect tense, suggesting that up until now, the speaker has not had the experience of seeing the Queen in their life.

    Rate this question:

    • D.

      Haven't had

    Correct Answer
    D. Haven't had
    Explanation

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "would stop." This is because the sentence is in the conditional form, expressing a hypothetical situation.

      To have closed

    • D.

      Having closed

    Correct Answer
    B. Closing
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "closing" because it is the present participle form of the verb "to close" and it correctly completes the sentence structure. In this sentence, the phrase "Would you mind" is followed by a verb in its -ing form, which indicates an action that is currently happening or will happen in the future. Therefore, "closing" is the most appropriate choice to express the action of closing the window.

    C. Isn't he
    Explanation
    This question is using the tag question construction, which is a way of seeking confirmation or agreement. In this case, the main part of the sentence is "John's coming to see you." The tag question that follows is "isn't he?" This tag question is used because the main part of the sentence is in the present tense ("John's coming"), so the tag question also needs to be in the present tense. The correct answer is "isn't he" because it matches the present tense of the main part of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 39. 

    Many students of English .......... take tests.

    • A.

      Would rather not

    • B.

      Would prefer not

    • C.

      Would rather not to

    • D.

      Not mind

    Correct Answer
    A. Would rather not
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "would rather not." This phrase is commonly used to express a preference or desire to avoid a particular action or situation. In this context, it suggests that many students of English prefer not to take tests. The use of "would rather not to" is incorrect because "to" should not be used after "rather not." "Not mind" is also incorrect as it does not convey the same level of preference or desire to avoid as "would rather not."

The auxiliary verb "do" is added before "expect" to form the correct tense. Therefore, the sentence should be "In this class we do expect you to work hard."
