### 2. There are skyscrapers _______ in New York

• A.

In

• B.

At

A. In
Explanation
The correct answer is "in" because when referring to the location of buildings in a city, we use the preposition "in". In this case, the sentence is stating that there are skyscrapers located in New York. The preposition "at" is not suitable in this context as it is typically used to indicate a specific point or location within a larger area.

### 4. The train will arive ____ Tuesday ____ eleven o'clock ____ the morning.

• A.

At,in,to

• B.

On,at,in

B. On,at,in
Explanation
The correct answer is "on, at, in". This is because we use "on" before a specific day, "at" before a specific time, and "in" before a specific part of the day. In this case, "Tuesday" is a specific day, "eleven o'clock" is a specific time, and "the morning" is a specific part of the day. Therefore, we use "on" before "Tuesday", "at" before "eleven o'clock", and "in" before "the morning".

A. Among
Explanation
The word "among" is used to indicate that someone or something is surrounded by or included in a group or number of people or things. In this sentence, it suggests that despite being surrounded by all those children, he did not have a single friend among them. On the other hand, "between" is used to indicate a relationship or connection involving two or more people or things. Since the sentence does not mention a specific relationship or connection between the children, "among" is the correct choice.
