    Correct Answer
    C. Have
    Explanation
    "Brazil and Argentina 1 - have confirmed (...)"

    Usamos have porque estamos falando de duas coisas, ou seja, dois países (they).

    Has é usado quando estamos falando sobre he, she e it.

    Haves não é uma opção possível.

    Had + verbo no passado é geralmente usado quando estamos falando de duas coisas que já aconteceram, sendo que uma delas aconteceu anterior a outra.

    Exemplo: When I finished the test, everybody had already left. Quando eu terminei a prova, todos já tinham saído.

    • D.

      They're

    Correct Answer
    A. Their
    Explanation
    "Brazil and Argentina have confirmed 2 - their first cases of swine flu (...)"

    Como estamos falando sobre dois países, o adjetivo possessivo their é a opção mais apropriada.

    They're e it's não indicam posse, pois funcionam como sujeitos da frase.

    Its seria possível se estivéssemos falando apenas sobre um único país.

    • C.

      Were

    • D.

      Will be

    Correct Answer
    C. Were
    Explanation
    "Two cases 4 - were registered in Sao Paulo, one in Rio de Janeiro and the other in Minas Gerais, the minister said."

    Were é a opção correta, pois estamos falando de dois casos (they), então não usamos was.

    Is não é apropriado gramaticalmente e também não faz sentido, já que a idéia acima é a de que dois caso foram registrados em São Paulo (passado). O mesmo ocorre com a opção will be que está indicando uma idéia de futuro.

    A opção correta é from, pois a idéia é a de que eles retornaram do México (estamos falando do local de origem).

    Por isso perguntamos: Where are you from? com o sentido de "De onde você vem?" ou "De onde você é?"
