Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    1. What do you ........................to every day?

    • A.

      Has to

    • B.

      Have to

    Correct Answer
    B. Have to
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have to". This is because the question is asking about a daily routine or obligation, and "have to" is used to express this. "Has to" is incorrect because it is the third-person singular form and does not match with the subject "you".

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Has to

    • B.

      Have to

    Correct Answer
    A. Has to
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "has to". This is because the sentence is referring to a singular subject, "my brother", which requires the use of "has" as the auxiliary verb. "Has to" indicates that it is necessary or obligatory for my brother to help make dinner.

    • B.

      Never

    • C.

      Sometimes

    Correct Answer
    A. Usually
    Explanation
    The word "usually" implies that the person takes a shower on a regular basis, specifically 5 days a week. This suggests that taking a shower is a common occurrence for them, indicating a habitual pattern.

      Never

    • C.

      Usually

    Correct Answer
    B. Never
    Explanation
    The sentence states that the person does not like fish, therefore they never eat it. This implies that the person avoids eating fish completely.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Do extra work to ..............extra money.

    • A.

      Expensive

    • B.

      Earn 

    • C.

      Cost

    Correct Answer
    B. Earn 
    Explanation
    The phrase "Do extra work" implies that the person is willing to put in additional effort or take on additional tasks. The word "earn" is the most appropriate choice in this context as it means to receive payment or income in exchange for work or services rendered. Therefore, the correct answer is "earn" because doing extra work is a way to generate extra money.

    • C.

      Strangers

    Correct Answer
    B. Chores
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "chores" because the statement suggests that there are many tasks or activities to be done at home and the urgency implied by "hurry up" indicates that these tasks are likely responsibilities or household chores that need to be completed promptly.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Sea lions live in ......

    • A.

      Ice and snow

    • B.

      Lakes

    • C.

      Desert

    Correct Answer
    B. Lakes
    Explanation
    Sea lions do not live in lakes. They are marine mammals that primarily inhabit coastal waters, including rocky shorelines, islands, and beaches. They are adapted to swim and hunt in the ocean, and lakes do not provide the necessary habitat or food sources for sea lions to survive. Therefore, the correct answer is lakes.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Camels live in the ......

    • A.

      Jungles

    • B.

      Deserts

    • C.

      Mountains

    Correct Answer
    B. Deserts
    Explanation
    Camels are well-known for their ability to survive in harsh desert environments. They have adapted to the extreme temperatures, lack of water, and sandy terrain found in deserts. Their humps store fat, not water, which helps them endure long periods without food or water. Additionally, camels have long legs and padded feet that allow them to walk on hot sand without sinking. These adaptations make deserts the natural habitat for camels, making the answer "deserts" the correct choice.

      Bear

    • D.

      Lizard

    Correct Answer
    B. Penguin
    Explanation
    Penguins are birds that have adapted to living in the water and are excellent swimmers, but they cannot fly. They have wings that have evolved into flippers, which they use to navigate through the water rather than to fly in the air. Penguins are known for their distinctive black and white plumage and their ability to dive deep into the ocean to catch fish. They are found in the Southern Hemisphere, particularly in Antarctica, and are well-known for their waddling walk on land.

      Camouflage

    • B.

      Blend in

    • C.

      Sting

    Correct Answer
    A. Camouflage
    Explanation
    Camouflage refers to the ability of animals to blend in with their surroundings, making it easier for them to hide from predators or sneak up on prey. This natural adaptation allows animals to effectively conceal themselves and increases their chances of survival. By blending in with their environment, animals can remain undetected and have a higher chance of successfully hunting or avoiding being hunted.

      Umbrella

    • D.

      Scarf and shorts

    Correct Answer
    B. Gloves and boots
    Explanation
    In cold and snowy weather, it is important to keep warm and protect oneself from the elements. Wearing gloves and boots would be the most appropriate choice as they provide insulation and help to keep the hands and feet warm. This ensures that the extremities are protected from the cold and snow, preventing frostbite and discomfort. Wearing boots also helps to provide traction and prevent slipping on the snowy surface.

      Is

    • D.

      Are

    Correct Answer
    A. Was
    Explanation

    Rate this question:

    • D.

      Were

    Correct Answer

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    The year round weather in a place is called ......

    • A.

      Average

    • B.

      Climate

    • C.

      Extreme

    • D.

      Planet

    Correct Answer
    B. Climate
    Explanation
    Climate refers to the long-term patterns of weather conditions in a particular area. It includes factors such as temperature, precipitation, humidity, and wind patterns. Unlike weather, which can change daily or even hourly, climate represents the average weather conditions over a longer period of time. Therefore, climate is the correct answer to describe the year-round weather in a place.

    • C.

      Safe

    • D.

      Unusual

    Correct Answer
    B. Dangerous
    Explanation
    Keeping dangerous animals at home can pose a risk to the safety of both the individuals living in the house and the animal itself. These animals may have aggressive tendencies or require specialized care that cannot be provided in a domestic setting. Therefore, it is not advisable to keep dangerous animals as pets.

"Hate," on the other hand, represents a strong negative emotion and is commonly considered the opposite of liking or having a positive attitude towards something.
