    Correct Answer
    B. Work

    • C.

      Eat

    • D.

      Eats

    Correct Answer
    C. Eat
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "eat" because when referring to multiple people, like "my brother and I," the verb should be in the plural form. Therefore, "eat" is the correct verb form to match the subject.

    They................to the movies once a month.

    • A.

      Watch

    • B.

      Watches

    • C.

      Goes

    • D.

      Go

    Correct Answer
    D. Go
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "go" because the subject "they" is plural, so the verb should also be in the plural form. "Go" is the correct plural form of the verb "to go" in this sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    We..................everyday after school.

    • A.

      Study

    • B.

      Studies

    • C.

      Go

    • D.

      Goes

    Correct Answer
    A. Study
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "study" because in the sentence, "We" is the subject, which is a plural pronoun. Therefore, it should be followed by a verb that agrees with it in the plural form. "Study" is the correct plural form of the verb, while "studies," "go," and "goes" are in the singular form and do not agree with the subject.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    I...................television most evenings.

    • A.

      Watches

    • B.

      Watch

    • C.

      Play

    • D.

      Play

    Correct Answer
    B. Watch
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "watch." The verb "watch" is the correct form to use with the subject "I" in this sentence. "Watches" is incorrect because it is the third person singular form, which does not agree with the subject "I." "Play" is also incorrect because it is not the appropriate verb to use with "television." Therefore, "watch" is the correct choice.

    • D.

      Speaks

    Correct Answer
    C. Speak
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "speak" because the subject "we" is plural, so the verb should also be in plural form. Therefore, the correct sentence is "We speak English when we are at school."
