    Correct Answer
    A. Do

      Is

    • D. 

      Are

    Correct Answer
    C. Is
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is" because the question is asking about the subject's birthday, which is a singular event or occasion. Therefore, the correct form of the verb to use is "is" to match the singular subject.

  • 4. 

    He _____ like this color.

      Not

    • C. 

      Does

    • D. 

      Doesn't

    Correct Answer
    D. Doesn't
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "doesn't". In this sentence, the subject "he" is singular, so we use the third person singular form of the verb "do", which is "does". When we use "doesn't" before a verb, it indicates that the subject does not like the color.

      Was

    Correct Answer
    B. Are
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Are" because the sentence is asking about the plural subject "they," indicating that the verb should also be in the plural form.
