    Explanation
    The question is asking about the past tense of the verb "go" in the context of the person's last holiday. The correct answer is "did...go" because it follows the correct structure for forming a question in the past tense using the auxiliary verb "did" and the base form of the main verb "go".

    Explanation
    The question is asking about the usual location for spending holidays. The correct answer is "do....stay" because it matches the subject "you" in the question. The verb "do" is used to form questions and the verb "stay" is the correct verb to indicate where someone typically spends their holidays.

    • D.

      Baught....took

    Correct Answer
    B. Bought....took
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "bought....took." The sentence is in the past tense, so the correct verb forms should be in the past tense as well. "Bought" is the past tense of "buy," indicating that the speaker purchased the expensive clock. "Took" is the past tense of "take," indicating that the speaker brought the clock home with them.

      Arriveed

    • D.

      Arriving

    Correct Answer
    B. Arrive
    Explanation
    The question is asking about the time of arrival last night. The correct answer is "arrive" because it is the base form of the verb and matches the sentence structure. The other options "arrived," "arriveed," and "arriving" are not grammatically correct in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    In my bedroom, .... a bed, a chair, and a desk.

    • C.

      Are there

    • D.

      Is there

    Correct Answer
    A. There's
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "there's." This is because the sentence is referring to the objects in the bedroom using the contraction "there's," which is short for "there is." The singular form is used because the sentence lists the objects as a collective group.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    I.... really hard for my exam right now.

    • A.

      Study

    • B.

      Am studing

    • C.

      Am studying

    • D.

      Be studying

    Correct Answer
    C. Am studying
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "am studying." The sentence is in the present continuous tense, which is used to describe actions happening at the moment of speaking. In this case, the speaker is emphasizing that they are currently putting in a lot of effort to prepare for their exam. The verb "study" is conjugated with the helping verb "am" to indicate the present continuous tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    They will meet her today ....

    • A.

      At the airport

    • B.

      In the airport

    • C.

      On the airport

    • D.

      At airport

    Correct Answer
    A. At the airport
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "at the airport" because when we talk about meeting someone, we use the preposition "at" to indicate the location where the meeting will take place. In this case, the meeting is planned to happen at the airport. The other options are incorrect because "in the airport" implies being inside the airport building, "on the airport" does not make grammatical sense, and "at airport" is missing the definite article "the" before "airport."

    • D.

      Have...watch

    Correct Answer
    B. Are...watching
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are...watching." This is because the question is asking about the present moment, so we need to use the present continuous tense. "Are" is the correct form of the auxiliary verb for the present continuous tense, and "watching" is the correct form of the main verb in the present continuous tense.

      Is write

    • D.

      Writing

    Correct Answer
    A. Is writing
    Explanation

    • D.

      It
