The word "that" is used as a pronoun to refer to the previous statement about meeting at Central Station, and "be convenient" is the verb phrase used to ask if it is convenient.

The other options, "are you go," "do you go," and "have you went," do not match the verb tense and are grammatically incorrect.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "would appreciate it". This phrase is commonly used to politely ask someone for a favor and express gratitude in advance for their assistance.

      Deposit

    • C.

      sit

    • D.

      put

    Correct Answer
    D. put
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "put". In this context, the person is asking where to place the key, and "put" is the most appropriate verb to use in this situation. "Hang" suggests suspending the key, which may not be suitable in this case. "Deposit" is typically used for financial transactions and doesn't fit the context. "Sit" is used for objects that can rest on a surface, but it doesn't convey the action of placing the key intentionally. Therefore, "put" is the best choice for indicating the action of placing the key on the shelf.
