    Correct Answer
    B. Be in charge of a department or project
    Explanation

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The missing word in the expression is "Actually". This word is commonly used to introduce a different perspective or suggest an alternative approach in a diplomatic manner.

    Correct Answer
    Don't
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Don't". This is because the sentence is asking for a diplomatic way to give advice. By using the word "Don't" at the beginning of the sentence, it suggests that the person should refrain from making personal calls at work without directly stating it as a command. This approach is more polite and diplomatic.

    Rate this question:

    Correct Answer
    was working, started, had never thought
    Explanation
    The sentence is asking for three different verb tenses: past simple, past continuous, and past perfect.

The past perfect tense is used to indicate an action that occurred before another past action. "Spoke" is in the past simple tense, which is used to describe a completed action in the past. "Was parking" is in the past continuous tense, which describes an ongoing action in the past.

    Rate this question:

    Make an adjective from this noun. annoyance

    Correct Answer
    annoyed
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "annoyed". This is because to make an adjective from the noun "annoyance", we add the suffix "-ed" to form "annoyed". The "-ed" suffix is commonly used to convert a verb or noun into an adjective, indicating a state or feeling. In this case, "annoyed" describes the feeling of being irritated or bothered.

    Rate this question:

    The correct answer is "competent." The word "competent" is an adjective formed from the noun "competence." It describes someone or something that is capable, skilled, or proficient in a particular task or field. In this case, the adjective "competent" is derived by adding the suffix "-ent" to the noun "competence."

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Make an adjective from this noun. frustration

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Make an adjective from this noun. persuasion

    Correct Answer
    persuasive
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "persuasive." An adjective is a word that describes or modifies a noun.

This adjective describes something or someone that is able to convince or influence others effectively.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Make an adjective from this noun. reassurance

    The correct answer is "reassuring" because it is the adjective form of the noun "reassurance." Adjectives describe or modify nouns, and in this case, "reassuring" describes something that provides comfort or relief. It is derived from the verb "reassure," which means to give someone confidence or remove their doubts. Therefore, "reassuring" is the appropriate adjective form of "reassurance."

    Rate this question:

    Make an adjective from this noun. rudeness

    Correct Answer
    rude
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "rude." To make an adjective from the noun "rudeness," we can simply remove the suffix "-ness" and add the suffix "-e" to form the word "rude." The adjective "rude" describes someone or something that is impolite, disrespectful, or ill-mannered.
