Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    They _____ a great family.

    • A.

      Are

    • B.

      Is

    • C.

      Do

    • D.

      Does

    Correct Answer
    A. Are
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are" because it agrees with the subject "they," which is a plural pronoun. In English, we use "are" with plural subjects to indicate that the subject and verb are in agreement. So, in this case, "are" is the correct form to use to complete the sentence and make it grammatically correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    This is _____ computer, not _______! (I / you)

    • A.

      Mine / you

    • B.

      My / yours

    • C.

      Mine / your

    • D.

      Mine / yours

    Correct Answer
    B. My / yours
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "my / yours" because the sentence is referring to the speaker's computer and the listener's computer. "My" is used to indicate possession by the speaker, and "yours" is used to indicate possession by the listener.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Do _______ the idea?

    • A.

      You likes

    • B.

      You like

    • C.

      She like

    • D.

      She likes

    Correct Answer
    B. You like
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "you like". The question is asking for the correct form of the verb "like" to match with the pronoun "you". In English, the verb "like" is conjugated as "like" for the pronoun "I", "you", "we", and "they", while it is conjugated as "likes" for the pronouns "he", "she", and "it". Therefore, the correct form to use with "you" is "like".

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    ______ she ______ soccer? - No, she ______ volley.

    • A.

      Do / play / plays

    • B.

      Does / plays / play

    • C.

      Does / play / play

    • D.

      Does / play / plays

    Correct Answer
    D. Does / play / plays
    Explanation
    The question is asking whether she plays soccer. In order to form a question with the third person singular subject "she," we need to use the auxiliary verb "does" followed by the base form of the main verb "play." Therefore, the correct question form is "Does she play soccer?" The answer to this question is "No," indicating that she does not play soccer. Instead, she plays volley. Since "she" is a third person singular subject, we use the base form of the main verb "play" without adding an "s" at the end. Therefore, the correct answer is "Does / play / plays."

    Rate this question:

    This food ________ (not smell) very well.

    • B.

      Doesn’t smells

    • C.

      Doesn’t smell

    • D.

      Don’t smells

    Correct Answer
    C. Doesn’t smell
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "doesn't smell" because the subject "food" is singular and requires the third-person singular form of the verb "smell," which is "doesn't smell." The word "doesn't" is the contraction of "does not," indicating the negative form of the verb.
