    • C.

      She's live

    Correct Answer
    B. She's lived
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "She's lived." This is because the sentence is referring to an action that started in the past (in 2004) and is still ongoing. The contraction "She's" is short for "She has," indicating the present perfect tense.

      Haven't seen

    Correct Answer
    C. Haven't seen
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "haven't seen". This is the correct answer because it follows the correct verb tense and subject-verb agreement. The sentence is in the present perfect tense, indicating an action that started in the past and is still ongoing or has just finished. Therefore, "haven't seen" is the correct form of the verb "to see" in this context.

    Correct Answer
    C. Been
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "been" because the sentence is in the present perfect tense, indicating an action that started in the past and is still ongoing.

    • C.

      Go

    Correct Answer
    A. Went

    The correct answer is "went" because it is the past tense form of the verb "to go." The sentence is referring to an action that happened in the past, specifically last year, so the past tense is appropriate.

    Correct Answer
    B. 's
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 's. The sentence is in the present tense and refers to someone who has had a lot of problems recently. The contraction 's is used to indicate possession or to show that someone or something belongs to someone. In this case, it is used to show that the person mentioned in the sentence has had a lot of problems.

    • C.

      Has run / was

    Correct Answer
    C. Has run / was
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "has run / was." This is because the sentence is talking about the past actions of the person, specifically their participation in marathons. The use of "has run" indicates that the person has completed the action of running marathons in the past, while "was" indicates the specific time when the first marathon took place.
