    • B.

      Tell

    Correct Answer
    B. Tell
    Explanation
    In this sentence, the word "us" indicates that the speaker is asking someone to share a story with them. The verb "tell" is used when someone shares information or a story with others. Therefore, the correct answer is "tell."

    • A.

      Say

    • B.

      Tell

    Correct Answer
    A. Say
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "say" because in this context, the speaker is expressing uncertainty about their knowledge or ability to provide a definite answer. They are indicating that they cannot state something with certainty but they believe it is okay. The verb "say" is commonly used to express opinions or beliefs without claiming absolute certainty.

    • A.

    • B.

      Tell

    Correct Answer
    A. Say
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "say". In this sentence, "say" is the appropriate verb to use because it means expressing an opinion or belief. "Tell" is not appropriate in this context because it implies giving information or instructions to someone.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Choose the correct answer I've ____ you not to do that.

    • A.

      Said

    • B.

      Told

    Correct Answer
    B. Told
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "told". In this sentence, the speaker is expressing that they have previously advised or instructed the listener not to do something. The verb "told" is the most appropriate choice here as it specifically implies giving information or instructions to someone. The verb "said" can be more general and does not necessarily convey the same level of instruction or advice.

    Rate this question:

    Choose the correct answer Do what I ____, not what I do.

    • A.

      Say

    • B.

      Tell

    Correct Answer
    A. Say
    Explanation
    This question is asking for the correct word to fill in the blank in the sentence "Do what I ____, not what I do." The sentence implies that the speaker wants others to follow their words rather than their actions. In this context, "say" is the appropriate word choice because it means to communicate or express something verbally.

    • C.

      Say you

    • D.

      Tell you

    Correct Answer
    D. Tell you
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "tell you" because the phrase "it's a secret" indicates that the speaker is unwilling to disclose the information. "Tell you" implies conveying information or sharing a secret, which aligns with the context of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Choose the correct answer Q10 - Did the joke he ____ make you laugh?

    • A.

      Said

    • B.

      Told

    Correct Answer
    B. Told
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "told" because when we talk about jokes, we usually use the verb "tell" to refer to the action of sharing or narrating a joke. In this context, "said" doesn't convey the same meaning as "told" when it comes to jokes.

    • A.

      Say

    • B.

      Tell

    Correct Answer
    B. Tell
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "tell" because when we want someone to provide us with information or give us an answer to a question, we use the verb "tell." In this case, the person is asking for someone to inform them about the correct time, so "tell" is the appropriate verb to use.

    • A.

      Said

    • B.

      Told

    Correct Answer
    A. Said
    Explanation
    The verb "said" is the correct answer because it is commonly used to report someone's words or statements. In this sentence, the subject is referring to herself and expressing that she stated or declared that she was not coming. The verb "told" is not appropriate in this context as it implies that someone else was being informed or instructed.

    • A.

      Said

    • B.

      Told

    Correct Answer
    B. Told
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "told". In this context, "told" is the appropriate verb to use because it indicates giving information or instructions to someone. "Said" can also be used to convey information, but it is more commonly used to simply state something without necessarily directing it towards someone specific.

    • A.

      Said

    • B.

      Told

    Correct Answer
    B. Told
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "told". In this sentence, "told" is the appropriate verb to use when conveying information that is not true, which is indicated by the word "lie". "Said" is more commonly used when reporting statements or expressing thoughts or opinions. Therefore, "told" is the correct verb choice in this context.
