Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    We ___________ here for more than two hours.

    • A.

      Are waiting

    • B.

      Waited

    • C.

      Have been waiting

    • D.

      Wait

    Correct Answer
    C. Have been waiting
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have been waiting" because it indicates an ongoing action that started in the past and is still happening in the present. The use of the present perfect continuous tense "have been waiting" suggests that the waiting started in the past and has continued up until now, indicating a duration of more than two hours.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Tim made a decision that ended up costing the company a ____________ large sum of money.

    • A.

      Fairly

    • B.

      Over

    • C.

      Totally

    • D.

      Completely

    Correct Answer
    A. Fairly
    Explanation
    Tim made a decision that ended up costing the company a fairly large sum of money. This implies that Tim's decision resulted in a significant financial loss for the company, but it was not an exorbitantly large amount. The word "fairly" suggests that the cost was substantial but not extreme or overwhelming.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    By the time we arrived the contractor had already ________.

    • A.

      Almost finished

    • B.

      Finish

    • C.

      Began

    • D.

      Gone

    Correct Answer
    D. Gone
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "gone" because it indicates that the contractor had already left or departed before we arrived. The use of "had already" suggests that the action of leaving occurred in the past before another past event (our arrival). Therefore, "gone" is the most appropriate verb choice to convey this sequence of events.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    We installed _________  of software programs.

    • A.

      Many

    • B.

      A number

    • C.

      Several

    • D.

      A few

    Correct Answer
    B. A number
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a number." This phrase is used to indicate an unspecified quantity or amount. In the context of the sentence, it suggests that multiple software programs were installed, but the exact number is not specified.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The ____________ work has been done on  this project.

    • A.

      Elementary

    • B.

      Starting

    • C.

      Preliminary

    • D.

      First

    Correct Answer
    C. Preliminary
    Explanation
    The word "preliminary" is the correct answer because it suggests that some initial work has been done on the project, but it is not yet complete or final. It implies that there may be more work to be done before the project is finished. The other options - elementary, starting, and first - do not convey the same meaning of initial or incomplete work.

    Rate this question:

  • 6.

      Whom

    • B.

      Who

    • C.

      That

    • D.

      Which

    Correct Answer
    B. Who
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "who" because it is used to refer to a person, in this case, the man who bought the bike. "Whom" is used as the object of a verb or preposition, "that" is used for restrictive clauses, and "which" is used for non-restrictive clauses.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Chris returned the bike _________ he had bought to the store.

    • A.

      That

    • B.

      Which

    • C.

      Cycle

    • D.

      Who

    Correct Answer
    A. That
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "that" because it is used to introduce a restrictive clause that provides essential information about the bike. In this context, "that" is used to specify the specific bike that Chris returned, distinguishing it from any other bikes he may have bought.

    Rate this question:

      Them

    • C.

      The book

    • D.

      A book

    Correct Answer
    A. It
    Explanation
    The pronoun "it" is the correct answer because it refers back to the book that Sarah had left. "It" is used to replace a singular noun in order to avoid repetition.

    • A.

      Affect

    Explanation
    Mr. Smith's speech had a profound effect on the audience. This means that his speech had a significant impact or influence on the audience. It caused them to react or respond in some way, possibly changing their thoughts, feelings, or actions. The word "effect" is the correct choice here because it is used to describe the result or consequence of something.
