    Robert, Harry and the clever do Last summer, Robert and Harry stayed at their grandparents' house by the sea. One hot and sunny morning, Grandmother made a picnic and took the boys to the beach. After lunch, Grandmother lay down and opened her book. The boys played football on the beach and then made a little castle with some sand. Then Harry saw a strange cave which was near some big, grey rocks at the other end of the beach. The boys quickly ran to it and looked in, but they couldn't see anything because it was very dark. Harry said, 'It looks big inside. Come on! I'll go First.' Harry and Robert were playing inside the cave when suddenly Robert said, 'Oh no! I can hear the sea! It's coming into the cave.' They were very afraid, but then Harry felt something wet on his hand. It was a dog's nose! The dog was very clever. It showed the boys another way out of the cave and back to the beach. When they told their grandmother about the dog, she gave him three biscuits and said, Well done!' `We're hungry too!' the boys said. 'Well,' Grandmother answered, 'you must wait until dinner. It was naughty to go into a dangerous place like that.' We're very, very sorry, Grandma!' they said. 'We won't do it again.'

The boys apologized for going into a dangerous place and promised not to do it again.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "want". In the given passage, the narrator is describing their experience at the playground. They mention that after talking to their friend and receiving an invitation to her party, they didn't want to go home. This implies that they still have the desire or intention to stay at the playground and continue having fun. Therefore, "want" is the correct form of the verb in this context.

    glass, lass
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "glass". In this sentence, the word "glass" is used to describe the quantity or container of milk. It indicates that the person drinks one full glass of milk every day.

    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "salad, alad." This answer suggests that the person loves vegetables and eats a plate of salad. However, there seems to be a typographical error in the answer, as "salad" is repeated twice. The correct answer should be "salad, alad," indicating that the person eats a plate of salad and also something else that starts with the letter "a," possibly another vegetable or dish.

    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that the speaker is capable of playing the drums. The word "drums" is the plural form, indicating that the speaker can play multiple drums. The words "rums" and "rum" are likely included as alternatives, but they do not make grammatical sense in this context and are not correct answers. The correct answer is "drums" because it is the only option that correctly completes the sentence and makes logical sense.

    Rate this question:

  • 34. 

    (4) I can’t play the v________

    Correct Answer
