    Explanation
    The use of "had already left" in the sentence suggests that the team left the hotel before the speaker arrived. The past perfect tense "had left" indicates that the action of leaving occurred before another past event (the speaker's arrival). The word "already" emphasizes that the team left prior to the speaker's arrival.

      Everyone

    Correct Answer
    A. Anybody
    Explanation
    The question is asking about the person who lives in the house, and the word "anybody" is the most suitable option as it refers to any person without specifying a particular individual.

      Fill out

    • B.

      Write down

    Correct Answer
    B. Write down
    Explanation
    The phrase "write down" is the correct answer because it means to record or note something on paper or in a document. In this context, the speaker wants to make sure they remember the date for the party, so they need to write it down to avoid forgetting it. "Fill out" does not fit the context as it means to complete a form or document, which is not necessary in this situation.

    Correct Answer
    A. Grilled
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "grilled" because grilling fish involves cooking it over direct heat without adding much oil or fat. This cooking method helps to retain the natural flavors of the fish and results in a lighter dish compared to frying, where the fish is cooked in oil. Therefore, the fish being grilled makes it a light option.

    Explanation
    When driving, it is common to see signs indicating upcoming exits or destinations. In this scenario, the statement suggests that there is a specific sign that the person will encounter while on the road, which will serve as a marker for reaching Brooklyn. The instruction to "get off at the exit after that" implies that the sign will indicate the desired route or direction to take in order to reach Brooklyn. Therefore, the correct answer is "sign."
