    Correct Answer
    rewrite
    Explanation

  • 7. 

    Before I went to elementary school, I went to ________

    Correct Answer
    preschool
    Explanation
    Before attending elementary school, children typically attend preschool. Preschool is an educational setting where young children learn and develop social, emotional, cognitive, and physical skills through play and structured activities. It serves as a foundation for formal education and prepares children for the transition to elementary school. Therefore, it is logical to assume that the blank in the sentence should be filled with "preschool."

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    If I don't agree is because I ________

    Correct Answer
    disagree
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "disagree" because the sentence structure suggests that the person is expressing their disagreement with something. The phrase "If I don't agree" implies that there is a disagreement, and the word "because" indicates that the following statement will explain the reason for the disagreement. Therefore, the word "disagree" fits logically in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    If something is not fair, it is ________

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    If something is not fair, it means that it lacks fairness or justice. The term "unfair" is used to describe situations or actions that are unjust, biased, or discriminatory. It implies that there is a violation of principles of equality and impartiality. Therefore, the correct answer for this question is "unfair."

    There are clothes that you have to ________ before washing them.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Before washing certain clothes, it is necessary to prewash them. This step involves rinsing or washing the clothes before the actual washing process to remove any dirt, stains, or other substances that may be difficult to remove during a regular wash. Prewashing helps to ensure that the clothes are thoroughly cleaned and prevents any potential damage or discoloration during the main washing cycle.
