    Correct Answer

      That

    • C.

      One

    Correct Answer
    C. One
    Explanation
    The word "one" is the correct answer because it is the most appropriate choice to complete the sentence. The sentence is asking for the respondent's preference towards a red object, and "one" is commonly used to refer to a specific object or thing. The word "it" would not be suitable as it is a pronoun used to refer to something previously mentioned. Similarly, "that" is used to point out or identify something specific, but it does not fit well in the context of the sentence.

      Day three

    Correct Answer

    Correct Answer
    C. Dark, long
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "dark, long." This is because the adjective "dark" describes the type of hair, and the adjective "long" describes the length of the hair. The correct word order is to use the descriptive word before the noun it modifies, so "dark" comes before "long."

      Much

    Correct Answer
    B. Most
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "most". In this sentence, we are comparing the level of interest among his films. When comparing two things, we use the comparative form "more" before the adjective or adverb for two-syllable words. However, when comparing more than two things, we use the superlative form "most" before the adjective or adverb. Since we are comparing the interest level of multiple films, "most" is the correct choice.
