    • C.

      Past

    Correct Answer
    C. Past
    Explanation
    The word "past" is the correct answer because it is the only word that makes sense in the given context. The rest of the sentence is fragmented and does not form a coherent phrase or sentence. However, "past" can be interpreted as referring to a previous time or a previous list of items for sale, which fits with the idea of a book listing things for sale.

    Explanation
    The word "collection" refers to a group of similar items that have been chosen to be saved. This implies that the items in the collection have some kind of value or significance, which is why they have been chosen to be preserved. The word "similar" indicates that the items in the collection share some common characteristics or qualities.

    Correct Answer
    A. Something, usually hair, between the nose and lips
    Explanation

    The term "catalog" refers to a book that lists things for sale. It is a collection of items or products that are available for purchase, usually organized in a systematic manner. This book serves as a reference guide for customers to browse through and select the items they are interested in buying. It provides detailed descriptions, specifications, and prices of the products, making it easier for customers to make informed purchasing decisions.

    Correct Answer
    B. A tree that produces a type of sweet fruit
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a tree that produces a type of sweet fruit" because a fig tree is well-known for producing figs, which are a type of sweet fruit. The other options, "a large songbird" and "thoughtfully," do not accurately describe a fig tree.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The word "practice" refers to the act of repeatedly performing an activity in order to improve one's skills or proficiency in that particular area. It involves consistent and focused effort towards mastering a specific task or skill. Through practice, individuals can enhance their abilities, knowledge, and understanding of a particular subject or activity. It is a deliberate and purposeful repetition of actions aimed at achieving expertise and competence.

    Challenge Word: robin

    • A.

      A large songbird

    • B.

      Doing something over and over again to become skilled

    • C.

      Something, usually hair, between the nose and lips

    Correct Answer
    A. A large songbird
    Explanation
    The word "robin" is commonly used to refer to a specific type of bird, known as a robin, which is a large songbird. This answer is supported by the fact that the other two options do not accurately describe a robin. The second option suggests a repetitive action to become skilled, which is unrelated to the word "robin." The third option refers to something usually found between the nose and lips, which is not applicable to the word "robin." Therefore, the correct answer is "a large songbird."

    • A.

    • B.

      Thoughtfully

    • C.

      Similar items chosen to save

    Correct Answer
    A. Made a loud, harsh cry
    Explanation
    The word "squawked" means to make a loud, harsh cry. This implies that the person or animal who is squawking is emitting a loud and unpleasant noise, possibly in distress or to communicate something. The word does not have any connotation of being thoughtful or choosing similar items to save. Therefore, the correct answer is "made a loud, harsh cry."
