    The words "allowed" and "permitted" both fit in the given sentence because they both convey the idea that the teacher gave permission or consent for the speaker to participate in the school competition. The other options, such as "let," "borrowed," and "wanted," do not convey the same meaning and are therefore not suitable in this context.

      Exhausting

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Serious
    D. Dangerous
    Explanation
    The person was taken to the hospital because his injury was serious and dangerous. This suggests that the injury was severe and potentially life-threatening, requiring immediate medical attention. The terms "simple," "exciting," and "exhausting" do not accurately describe the severity or urgency of the injury.

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Informed

Both "informed" and "told" indicate that the person provided the necessary information for the speaker to understand something.

    • B.

      Adapted

    • C.

      Contained

    • D.

      Confessed

    • E.

      Advanced

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Admitted
    D. Confessed
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "admitted" and "confessed" because both words imply the act of acknowledging or owning up to something. When a criminal is arrested, they may choose to admit or confess to their previous crimes, meaning they accept responsibility and acknowledge their wrongdoing. The other options, "adapted," "contained," and "advanced," do not relate to the act of acknowledging or confessing to a crime.

    • E.

      Slender

    Correct Answer(s)
    D. Thin
    E. Slender
    Explanation
    The word "plump" describes someone who is slightly overweight or chubby. The opposite of this would be someone who is thin or slender, as they would have a lower body fat percentage. Therefore, the correct answers are "thin" and "slender".

    Rate this question:

  • 8.

    • A.

      Interests

    • E.

      Mistakes

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Interests
    C. Hobbies
    Explanation
    The question asks for two things that individuals can do in their spare time. "Interests" and "hobbies" are both activities that people engage in during their free time. These activities are typically done for enjoyment, personal satisfaction, or to pursue a particular passion or curiosity. "Jobs," "works," and "mistakes" are not typically associated with spare time activities and do not fit the context of the question.

    • D.

      Consist

    • E.

      Agree

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Deny
    B. Conceal
    Explanation
    The word "admit" means to acknowledge or confess to something. The antonyms of "admit" would be words that mean the opposite, which are "deny" and "conceal". "Deny" means to refuse to acknowledge or accept something, while "conceal" means to hide or keep something secret. Therefore, the correct answer is "deny, conceal".

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    The doctor asked me to monitor my grandfather because of his illness. "Monitor" can be replaced by ...... (Select two)

    • A.

      Observe

    • B.

      Look for

    • C.

      Watch

      See off 

    • E.

      Collect

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Observe
    C. Watch
    Explanation
    The word "monitor" in this context means to keep a close watch or observation on someone. Therefore, it can be replaced by "observe" and "watch" as both words convey the same meaning of paying attention to someone's condition or behavior.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

     I am looking forward .................... the new film. (Select two)

    • A.

      To see

    • B.

      To be seen

    • C.

      To seeing  

    • D.

      Seeing

    Correct Answer
    A. To see
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "to see" because the phrase "looking forward" is followed by a verb, and the verb form used after "looking forward" is the infinitive form. In this case, "to see" is the correct infinitive form of the verb "see." The other options, "to be seen," "to seeing," and "seeing" are not the correct infinitive forms and do not fit grammatically in the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 13.

    • A.

      Chat board

    • C.

      Transplant

    • D.

      Connection

    Correct Answer
    D. Connection
    Explanation
    The word "between" in the sentence suggests that there is a relationship being discussed. In this case, the relationship being referred to is between smoking and cancer. The word "connection" best fits this context as it implies a link or correlation between the two.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Pay

    • C.

      To pay

    • D.

      Pating

    Correct Answer
    C. To pay
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "to pay" because it follows the structure "be made + infinitive" which means that someone was instructed or forced to do something. In this case, the person was made to pay a fine for not wearing the seat belt.

    Rate this question:

    • C.

      Effectively

    • D.

      Effect

    Correct Answer

    • C.

      Isolation

    • D.

      Crowd

    Correct Answer
    A.  isolate
    Explanation
    Fruit sellers should isolate rotten foods from good ones in order to maintain the quality and freshness of their products. By separating the rotten fruits from the good ones, they can prevent the spread of decay and ensure that customers receive only the best quality produce. This practice is essential for maintaining customer satisfaction and promoting a positive reputation for the fruit seller.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Those sheep ....... fat. (Select one)

    • A.

      Is

    • B.

      Are

    • C.

      Had

    • D.

      Was

    Correct Answer
    B. Are
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are" because "sheep" is a plural noun, and the verb should agree with the subject in number. In this case, "are" is the correct form of the verb to match the plural noun "sheep."

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    All Egyptians know that water ........... has become a must. (Select one)

    • A.

       wasting

    • B.

      Conservation

    • C.

      Donating

    • D.

      Support

    Correct Answer
    B. Conservation
    Explanation
    The sentence states that water has become a must for all Egyptians. In this context, the word "conservation" fits best as it implies the act of protecting and preserving water resources. This suggests that Egyptians are aware of the importance of using water wisely and not wasting it. The other options, such as "wasting," "donating," and "support," do not convey the same idea of actively preserving water resources.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    A / An ......... is a group of letters added to the beginning of a word to form a new word. (Select one)

    • A.

      Suffix

    • B.

      Adverb

    • C.

      Prefix

    • D.

      Noun

    Correct Answer
    C. Prefix
    Explanation
    A prefix is a group of letters added to the beginning of a word to form a new word. It is the opposite of a suffix, which is added to the end of a word. Prefixes can change the meaning or the grammatical function of a word. For example, adding the prefix "un-" to the word "happy" creates the word "unhappy," which means not happy.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Playing

      Had played

    • D.

      Was playing

    Correct Answer
    D. Was playing
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "was playing". This is because the sentence is referring to an action that was happening in the past. The use of "was" indicates the past continuous tense, which is used to describe an ongoing action in the past. Therefore, Mazen was playing chess all day yesterday.

      Many  

    • D.

      Any

    Correct Answer

      Sense

    • D.

      Responsible

    Correct Answer
    B. Responsibility
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "responsibility". This is because the sentence is discussing the speaker's request for the listener to not ask them to receive telephone calls. The word "responsibility" fits in this context as it implies that the speaker is indicating that it is the listener's duty or obligation to not ask them to receive phone calls.

    • D.

      Successful

    Correct Answer
    A.  miserable
    Explanation
    The statement "He has lost everything" suggests that the person is in a state of extreme unhappiness and suffering. Therefore, the appropriate word to describe his current state would be "miserable".

      Tricks

    Correct Answer
    B.  owes

    ..................... describe something unusual ,exciting and often from or in another country. (Select one)

    • A.

       isolated

    • B.

      Exotic

    • C.

      Natural

    • D.

      Sustainable

    Correct Answer
    B. Exotic
    Explanation
    An explanation for the correct answer "exotic" is that it refers to something that is unusual, exciting, and often from or in another country. It suggests that the thing being described is unique, unfamiliar, and has a sense of adventure or intrigue associated with it. The term "exotic" is commonly used to describe foreign cultures, cuisines, landscapes, or experiences that are different from one's own, adding a sense of fascination and allure.

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

    My father always tells me ............ valuable advice. (Select one)

    • A.

       a

    • B.

      An

    • C.

       the

    • D.

      No article

    Correct Answer
    D. No article
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "no article" because the word "valuable" is an adjective that describes the noun "advice." When an adjective is used to describe a noun in a general sense, we do not use an article before the noun. In this case, "valuable advice" refers to advice that is generally valuable, without specifying any particular advice.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    The only way to ........... fear is to face it. (Select one)

    • A.

       avoid

    • B.

      Conquer

    • C.

      Make

    • D.

      Contact

    Correct Answer
    B. Conquer
    Explanation
    Facing fear is the only effective way to overcome it. Avoiding fear may provide temporary relief, but it does not address the root cause or help in building resilience. Making fear implies creating fear, which is not a solution. Contacting fear does not make sense in this context. Therefore, the correct answer is "conquer," as it suggests the act of confronting and overcoming fear.

    Rate this question:

  • 30.

      Didn't

    • C.

      Haven't

    • D.

      Isn't

    Correct Answer
    D. Isn't
    Explanation
    The word "isn't" is the correct answer because it indicates that Muhammad is currently not a slow learner. The other options, "doesn't," "didn't," and "haven't," all imply that Muhammad is still a slow learner, which contradicts the statement in the question.
