    • C.

      --

    • D.

      Been

    Correct Answer
    B. Are
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are" because the subject of the sentence is "Ted and Mary," which is a plural noun. In English, plural subjects require the verb form "are" to agree with them.

  • 4. 

    The game _______ exciting.

    • A.

      Was

    • B.

      Were

    • C.

      Being

    • D.

      ----

    Correct Answer
    A. Was
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "was" because the word "game" is singular, and "was" is the past tense form of the verb "to be" used with singular subjects.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    They ______ too much

    • A.

      Worry

    • B.

      Worries

    • C.

      Worrying

    • D.

      Worried

    Correct Answer
    A. Worry
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "worry". This is because the sentence is in the present tense and requires a verb that matches the subject "they". "Worry" is the correct present tense form of the verb, while "worries" is the third person singular form and does not match the subject. "Worrying" is a present participle form and "worried" is the past tense form, both of which are not appropriate for the present tense sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    She ______ every night

    • A.

      Studying

    • B.

      Studied

    • C.

      Studies

    • D.

      Study

    Correct Answer
    C. Studies
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "studies". This is because the word "she" is a third-person singular pronoun, and when using present simple tense with third-person singular subjects, we add an 's' to the verb. Therefore, the correct form of the verb "study" in this sentence is "studies".

      ---

    • D.

      ----

    B. Was
    Explanation
    The word "was" is the correct answer because it agrees with the subject "that" in terms of past tense. The sentence suggests that something in the past was incredible.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Those ______ pretty shoes

    • A.

      Is

    • B.

      Are

    • C.

      ___

    • D.

      ___

    Correct Answer
    B. Are
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are" because the word "shoes" is plural, indicating that there is more than one shoe. In English grammar, plural nouns are typically paired with the verb "are" to indicate that there is more than one of the subject. Therefore, "are" is the appropriate verb to complete the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The cat or dog _______ in the yard

    • B.

      Are

    • C.

      Been

    • D.

      ----

    Correct Answer
    A. Is
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is" because when referring to a singular subject, such as "the cat or dog," the verb should also be singular. In this case, "is" is the singular form of the verb "to be" and agrees with the subject.
