      To shopping

    • D.

      Shop

    Correct Answer
    B. Shopping
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "shopping". In this sentence, the verb "went" is followed by the gerund form of the verb "shop", which is "shopping". The gerund form is used after certain verbs, like "go", to indicate an activity or action. Therefore, the correct phrase is "went shopping", meaning that the speaker went to engage in the activity of shopping after the conference.

      Supply

    Correct Answer
    A. Equipment
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "equipment" because it is the most appropriate word to complete the sentence. The sentence implies that something has been ordered for the new office, and "equipment" is a common term used to refer to the tools, machinery, or other items needed for a particular purpose or activity in an office setting. The other options, such as "items" or "supply," are not specific enough and do not convey the same meaning as "equipment."
