    • C.

      Telling

    • D.

      Talking

    Correct Answer
    A. Saying
    Explanation
    The question is asking about the ability to hear what someone is doing. Out of the given options, "saying" is the most appropriate as it refers to the act of expressing words audibly. The other options, such as "speaking," "telling," and "talking," can also involve the use of words, but they may imply different forms of communication or the content of the message. Therefore, "saying" is the best fit for the question.

      Yet

    • D.

      Already

    Correct Answer
    C. Yet
    Explanation
    The word "yet" is the correct answer because it indicates that the person being referred to has not come home up until the present moment. It suggests that there is still a possibility that the person may come home in the future, but as of now, they have not arrived.

      Viewed

    • B.

      Watched

    • C.

      Saw

    • D.

      Looked

    Correct Answer
    B. Watched
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "watched". This is because the verb "watched" is the most appropriate choice when referring to the action of viewing something on television. The other options, "viewed," "saw," and "looked," do not specifically convey the act of watching television.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    She looks ....... a famous film star.

      Like

    • C.

      Similar

    • D.

      Same

    Correct Answer
    B. Like
    Explanation
    The word "like" is used to compare two things that are similar in appearance or characteristics. In this case, the sentence implies that the person being referred to has a resemblance or similarity to a famous film star in terms of her looks. Therefore, "like" is the correct word choice to convey this comparison.

    • D.

      All

    Correct Answer
    A. Whole
    Explanation
    The word "whole" is the correct answer because it implies that the speaker wants to hear the complete and entire truth, without any omissions or partial information. The other options, such as "exact," "real," and "all," do not convey the same sense of completeness and entirety as the word "whole."

    Some people only read the "head" lines in a newspaper. This means that they only read the headlines or the main titles of the news articles without going into the details or reading the entire article. They may do this to quickly get an idea of what is happening in the world or to save time by only focusing on the most important news.

    At the end of the speech, the whole assembly gave the speakers a standing ovation. This indicates that the audience showed their appreciation and admiration for the speakers by standing up and applauding loudly. An ovation is a display of enthusiastic approval or recognition, typically shown through applause, which aligns with the given context.
